Pianist Randy Weston and trombonist/arranger Melba Liston have collaborated successfully for many years. This pairing was on a series of blues numbers, with Weston doubling as session producer and pianist while giving Liston almost total arranging control, except for three numbers. The results were an intriguing twist on standard 12-bar blues, as Weston’s muscular piano lead the way through rigorous performances of Count Basie’s "Volcano" and his own "Blues For Strayhorn," "Sad Beauty Blues" and "In Memory Of." Liston’s arrangements required disciplined solos, and Weston’s steady hand generated impressive cohesion and interaction during the unison segments. A superb example of the African/African-American musical continuum. ~Ron Wynn
