Hal Galper - 1978 - Speak with a Single Voice

The Hal Galper Quintet
Speak with a Single Voice

01. Speak With A Single Voice
02. I Can't Get Started
03. Waiting For Chet
04. Blue And Green
05. Now Hear This

Bass – Wayne Dockery
Drums – Bob Moses
Piano – Hal Galper
Tenor Saxophone, Flute – Michael Brecker
Trumpet – Randy Brecker

Recorded Live In Feburary, 1978 at ROSY'S in New Orleans, LA. US

The Brecker Brothers (tenor saxophonist Mike and trumpeter Randy) join pianist Hal Galper, bassist Wayne Dockery, and drummer Bob Moses for a set of high-quality modern hard bebop. The Breckers spent much of the 1970s in the studios, so this LP (not yet reissued on CD) gave one a rare opportunity to hear them during the era playing in a noncommercial setting. The quintet performs three Galper originals (including the Chet Baker tribute "Waiting for Chet") and "I Can't Get Started," while the leader performs "Blue and Green" unaccompanied. A fine session that has unfortunately become quite obscure.
