"Angedras" is the mirror image of "Sardegna" (the Italian name for Sardinia).



A beautiful suite of tracks dedicated to the four elements – composed and arranged by Italian bassist Marcello Melis – and performed by him with a quartet that includes Don Moye on percussion, Don Pullen on piano, and Sandro Satta on alto sax. The work's got a quality that really seems to bring out an imaginative side of Moye and Pullen – and focus them with an energy that's different, yet still very much in keeping with their best work of the time. Melis' presence on the album is almost more that of an "enabler" than an equal player, and he's clearly respectful of the others – in a way that really allows the session to unfold with an organic feel. Titles are listed as "Angedras", 1 through 4. (Out of print.)
