Earth Beams

Earth Beams is a studio album recorded by noted jazz performers George Adams and Don Pullen as the George Adams/Don Pullen Quartet. Adams and Pullen had met through their work with composer and double-bassist Charles Mingus, who had died the year the Adams/Pullen Quartet began in 1979. According to Neil Tesser, "The participation of Dannie Richmond, Mingus's longtime drummer and protégé, only strengthened the sense that they were continuing on in Mingus's footsteps." Recorded in the Netherlands in August 1980, Earth Beams features screeching solos from Adams and "tightly wound chord clusters" from Pullen.

Famous quotes containing the words beams and/or earth:

    Give me the splendid silent sun
    with all his beams full-dazzling,
    Give me juicy autumnal fruit ripe and red from the orchard,
    Give me a field where the unmow’d grass grows,
    Give me an arbor, give me the trellis’d grape,
    Give me fresh corn and wheat, give me serene-moving animals teaching content,
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    Out of the earth to rest or range
    Perpetual in perpetual change,
    The unknown passing through the strange.
    John Masefield (1878–1967)
