Alvin Fielder Trio – A Measure of Vision

Another recent eMusic grab is Alvin Fielder Trio’s A Measure of Vision, with Chris Parker and Dennis Gonzales.

I have had the pleasure of meeting and visiting with Alvin several times in New Orleans. He is always wonderfully sharing with his time and knowledge. Most of my exposure to his playing has been in groups with Kidd Jordan. He sounds great with Kidd, they have a long history and a real musical empathy. It is nice to hear Alvin in a different context however. It has let me experience other aspects of his musicianship.
