Michael White - Voices

Regular price $14.99

Michael White is a truly original and groundbreaking violinist in the realm of jazz. In the 1960s, he introduced the violin into the free jazz scenes of the Bay Area and New York, playing with luminaries such as Sun Ra, John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders. In the early 1970s, he was a founding member of one of the very first fusion groups, The Fourth Way. He released five albums with the Michael White Quartet on Impulse! Records, and has toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe.

Voices features master musicians and old friends Timothy Young (guitar), Cecil McBee (bass), Kenneth Nash (percussion) and Leisei Chen (vocals). Cecil McBee and Kenneth Nash also performed on Michael’s classic 1973 release The Land of Spirit and Light.

 

"I savored the rasping moans and chanting clangs of this adventurous violinist's new CD, Voices (Izniz Records). White's burgundy tone, funky pizzicati and easygoing arrangements smartly blend jazz and folk music from around the world." - Christopher DeLaurenti, The Stranger
