Ahmed Abdullah Quartet - Liquid Magic (SILKHEART RECORDS 2018)

"Abdullah has a good technique and a tone you could roast bread on. His cohorts – Malachi Favors, Charles Brackeen, Alvin Fielder – are enormously capable and experienced. Things really begin to happen and the album blazes with the vigor and sense of self-surprise that marked those that followed Ornette into wonderland in the early 1960s." 
Jack Cooke, The Wire, January 1989
