Listen to the storming ‘Perfection’ a hitherto unrecorded Ornette Coleman composition that appears as the title track on the Murray, Allen and Carrington Power Trio’s new Motéma label release.
With David Murray (tenor saxophone), Geri Allen (piano) and Terri Lyne Carrington (drums) plus guests bassist Charnett Moffett – Moffett's dad Charles was a close friend of Ornette's from school days and the bassist’s first name combines Charles and Ornette – and trombonist Craig Harris.
Allen’s son Wallace Roney Jr (trumpet-playing son of the pianist and her husband Wallace Roney) is on the longer album version. The record is out on 13 May. Other dedicatees on the album besides Ornette are Marcus Belgrave, Charlie Haden and Father Peter O’Brien. One Carrington composition also doffs her cap to one of the drummer’s great mentors, Wayne Shorter, whose band the multiple Grammy winner played in for many years.
