Originally recorded in 1965 and reissued in 2008, MILFORD GRAVES PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE features the free-jazz drummer working with fellow drummer Sunny Morgan as a duo. Graves was known for his command of African and Indian styles, and that influence can be heard here, but it's the free nature of the improvisations that stands out the most. Largely structureless, the pieces on PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE rattle and thump like a trap set thrown down the stairs, which might frustrate those not used to such free-jazz drumming, but may also entice those who are.
