HANNIBAL IN LONDON


POEM SONG 
MARVIN HANNIBAL PETERSON – DON WELLER – MARTIN BLACKWELL – DAVE GREEN – BRYAN SPRING
LP MOLE JAZZ 6 – UK, 1981


The recent posting of Don Weller’s Major Surgery on OIR reminded me that I still had to post this live album of Hannibal Peterson with the Weller – Spring Quartet.


In 1981 Don Weller stood in for Michael Brecker when the Gil Evans Orchestra played at the Bracknell Jazz Festival.  He subsequently toured the UK with the Orchestra and recorded a live album with one of the band's trumpeters, Hannibal Marvin Peterson, added on to the Weller–Spring Quartet.



A strong album, four tracks with ample room for everyone to stretch out.  There is some deep playing in there.  Check the title track and 19+ minutes version of “Africa”.



Hannibal c. 1976

    4. It seems that we can find the same piece of music “Africa“ (on this record) under another title “To Search The Inner World“, on the record The Light, Hannibal and the Sunrise Orchestra, Baystate, 1978.
      Both are excellent!
      Thank you again!

  2. Thank you. What a great album! Everyone plays fantastic, but Martin Blackwell (a name unfamiliar to me) sounds particularly good. Thanks for the chance to hear this.
