(Mar 25, 2013): John Surman and Jack DeJohnette – Nestor Saga (The Tale of the Ancient)

From the 1981 album, The Amazing Adventures of Simon Simon.  This is part one of nine parts of Simon Simon’s adventure.  This was the first collaboration between Surman (on baritone, soprano, bass clarinet and synthesizer) and DeJohnette (on drums, congas and electric piano).  It is still a good place to start listening to this duo’s work.  Surman’s bass clarinet on this piece is outstanding.
