Product details

Tall Poppies Records is proud to release this fine recording of the Bruce Cale Quartet, consisting of Dale Barlow (flute and saxophones), Roger Frampton (piano), Bruce Cale (bass) and Phil Treloar (drums), each an exceptional creative musician. Recorded 24 years ago at the Adelaide Festival of Arts, these performances document a unique musical journey.

This recording is testimony to the kind of interpretive diversity Roger Frampton and Phil Treloar, in particular, were capable of creating. They were possibly the only musicians in Australia at the time exploring this level of free expression and who were capable of doing so within tightly structured contexts. They created a precedent, one which a number of the younger generation players are now exploring.

Unfortunately there is very little record anywhere of this quartet's music-making. That is one of the many reasons Tall Poppies Records is releasing this recording - an archival document that is sure to turn heads even a quarter of a century later!

For those lucky enough to have heard and seen this quartet live, and for those that come to it new, the unique level of communication that these four share in exploring Bruce Cale's compositions will astound and delight.

Duration: 61 min.

Dedication note: "In memory of Roger Frampton" -- Container.

Performed as part of the Adelaide Festival of Arts, 1980, and recorded for broadcast by the ABC on Jim McLeod's 'Jazz Track'.
