Earth Beams

Earth Beams is a studio album recorded by noted jazz performers George Adams and Don Pullen as the George Adams/Don Pullen Quartet. Adams and Pullen had met through their work with composer and double-bassist Charles Mingus, who had died the year the Adams/Pullen Quartet began in 1979. According to Neil Tesser, "The participation of Dannie Richmond, Mingus's longtime drummer and protégé, only strengthened the sense that they were continuing on in Mingus's footsteps." Recorded in the Netherlands in August 1980, Earth Beams features screeching solos from Adams and "tightly wound chord clusters" from Pullen.

Famous quotes containing the words beams and/or earth:

    When Gabriel’s trumpet ends all life’s delay,
    Will crash the beams of firmamental woe:
    Not nature will sustain the even crime
    Of death, though death sustains all nature, so.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Once the sin against God was the greatest sin, but God died, and so these sinners died as well. To sin against the earth is now the most terrible thing, and to esteem the entrails of the unknowable more highly than the meaning of the earth.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
