Kalaparush Maurice McIntyre provides us with a rare glimpse into his live performance. Perhaps one of the most influential and under-recorded artists of the AACM, Kalaparush is joined by Ravish Momin on percussion and Jesse Dulman on tuba. Jesse’s tuba recalls the pre-bass second line of jazz music and Ravish provides worldly polyrhythmic sequences. All of the playing comes together with the elegance of Kalaparush’s compositions and improvisations. Recorded at one night’s performance in Detroit. Entropy Stereo is pleased to provide a unique live document of a master saxophonist and composer.
“On The Moment, founding AACM sax player Kalaparush is accompanied by a much younger (and quite able) rhythm section formed of tuba player Jesse Dulman and drummer Ravish Momin… One wishes that Kalaparush’s on-stage banter had been better recorded or left out, since one can barely make out his words, but otherwise this is one of the great jazz albums of 2003.” ~ Francois Couture, All Music Guide
