Roscoe Mitchell – Hey Donald
Delmark DE 475 (1993)
It’s hard to believe that 30 years have passed since Delmark issued Sound in 1966, the first recording of 26-year-old Roscoe Mitchell. this CD you hold in your hand, “Hey Donald” was not intended as a commemorative release, but a more exciting merging of musicians could not have been pulled off even if that had been the plan.
This CD is dedicated to Donald Myrick, the late saxophonist and one of Mitchell’s fellow founding members of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians who, among many other things, was an original member of Earth, Wind and Fire.
