Bones Blues

Bones Blues

by Pete MagadiniPete Magadini




Although drummer Pete Magadini is the leader of this set (which was reissued on CD in 1996 with a previously unreleased second version of "Freddie Freeloader" added), it is tenor saxophonist Don Menza who really dominates the music. Menza (along with Magadini, pianist Wray Downes and bassist Dave Young) stretches out on such numbers as "Old Devil Moon," "Solar" and his own "Bones Blues," tearing into the music but also showing senstivity on the ballads. Don Menza should really be recorded much more often.
