Ed Petersen – The Haint
Delmark DE 474 (1993)
This second Delmark album by Ed Petersen was recorded just in the nick of time – as he was packing his bags to leave Chicago. Recently, he accepted the position of assistant professor of jazz studies at The University of New Orleans where he works with Ellis Marsalis, Steve Masakowski, and Harold Battiste. As a freelance musician he has worked with Dizzy Gillespie, Von Freeman, Johnny Griffin, Benny Goodman, Ella Fitzgerald, Ira Sullivan, and many others.
The Haint contains great, no-nonsense, inspired playing by six exceptionally skillful musicians.
