5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding recording by an original, if quirky, player, July 14, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Outa Sight (Audio CD)
I have the LP of this and will buy the CD promptly. This is a very early 1960s recording by an alto player unknown to me before this album. To put Mr. Anderza in some context, I'd say that he's a little like a Republican Eric Dolphy -- schooled and advanced harmonically, but polite and good-natured about using his advanced abilities. It's fun stuff, however, whether your harmonic sensibilities lean towards Dolphy or Carter. And based on the names I've invoked, you might correctly guess that Mr. Anderza's tone is good. (No "I wish I were Trane, but I won't be in a zillion years" Primal Squeals that would send M. Selmer packing here, thank God.)
Jack Wilson, a good player, handles the piano. He also plays some harpsichord, which I guess was a fairly well-tuned (for once) piece of furniture that happened to be in the studio that day. It's fun without being a gimmick.
This is a good record. I'm afraid that I don't know what happened to this man (perhaps t! ! he CD liner notes will tell us), but it's too bad that Mr. Anderza did not grace us with more of his music (or maybe I'm just an idiot and he did).
