Master drummer Andrew Cyrille turned 79 in November. His wonderful new recording Lebroba, following on the heels of his acclaimed The Declaration of Musical Independence proves age has little to do with creativity. You'll hear two tracks from the new release which features Bill Frisell and Wadada Leo Smith, another septuagenarian at peak powers.
Saxophonist Cale Brandley's name may not resonate for some, but back in 2005, he was studying jazz in New York and hooked up with the Triptych Myth Trio to record Finding Fire. That album is finally available thanks to Birdwatcher Records, and it reveals another set of recording music by Triptych Myth (Cooper-Moore piano, bassist Tom Abbs and drummer Chad Taylor) who, it had been thought, had only recorded two albums.
