RE: More recent Torn
I would also recommend the new Bruford Levin Upper Extremities
with DT and Chris Botti. I saw them last night at the Birchmere
(also will be going to the Orion Shows on Friday)
Great stuff (both on Record and the live versions)
You can order from Papa Bear direct if you can't
find it in your local store.
DT had two echoplexes last night and was amazing.
I had not heard Botti before but was impressed, reminds
me of pre-fusion Miles Davis. Buford and Levin were
brilliant as usual. I really enjoyed the show.
