Joëlle Léandre: Zurich Concert

Read "Zurich Concert" reviewed by Mark Corroto

A solo concert by the double bassist Joëlle Léandre is a happening, an event of the highest order.

However, after listening several times, the album leaves a sneaking feeling that Robert Wyatt probably deserved equal billing rather than just being mentioned in ...
