Wildflowers / Brian Brown
Featured Australian works
Also includes: Bewitched / Rogers and Hart.
Composed in 1984, Wildflowers blends sounds of the Australian bush with free jazz. The title track, plus eight more, is music liberated from any obligation to fashion or idiom.
Brian Brown's musical career started by replicating America's ferociously driving hard bop jazz style of the 1950s in mild-mannered Australia. He moved on in an attempt to make modern jazz that escaped the thrall of the American model.
There is amazing variety on this CD - lyrical romanticism, nervous discovery, delight, pathos, fast reflex responses and close interaction with different fellow musicians.
