RIP Charles Fambrough

NEW YORK STORIES (Blue Note, 1992)
Danny Gatton - Bobby Watson - Roy Hargrave - Joshua Redman - Franck Amsallem - Charles Fambrough - Yuron Israel

I just read about the death of bassist Charles Fambrough.  
This excellent group outing is an opportunity to hear him in an "All Stars" setting. 
Here's what AMG has to say about this album:

This interesting outing by an all-star group (guitarist Danny Gatton, altoist Bobby Watson, trumpeter Roy Hargrove, Joshua Redman on tenor, pianist Franck Amsallem, bassist Charles Fambrough and drummer Yuron Israel) is most notable for featuring the brilliant Gatton in a jazz setting. Together the septet, performs nine originals by group members and Gatton and Watson emerge as the main solo stars. Despite its somewhat generic name, this advanced hard bop date is quite memorable.
Charles Fambrough (1950-2011)

It's an old rip from the original CD (OOP).  192 K only but OK.

  2. RE up

  3. This has already "expired"? Is that because people dont know about Gatton? Gatton playing with these other great guys is something i would like to have heard. I supposs my beggin for re-ups is getting annoying.
