Hamiet Bluiett - Resolution

From sublime to funky to far out, Bluiett covers a lot of ground on this early Black Saint lp.

1. Happy Spirit
 (my inner-self that rarely gets a chance to emerge!)
2. Flux/A Bad M.F.
 (a caricature of Don Pullen - A Giant)
3. Head Drake
 (dedicated to my cousin Calvin Miller)
4. Before Yesterday
5. Spring's Joy
6. "Mahalia" ...No Other One
 (dedicated to Mahalia Jackson - A Great Lady)

Hamiet Bluiett - baritone sax, clarinet, flute, bamboo flute
Don Pullen - piano, organ
Fred Hopkins - bass
Billy Hart - drums, percussion (left channel)
Don Moye - sun percussion (right channel)

1978 Black Saint Records
