Lenny White

Lenny White Live

(BFM Jazz; US: 19 Mar 2013; UK: Import)

Lenny White taps into his vault of live recordings and comes up with an explosive performance from a tour of Japan in 1997. Lenny White Live is more for the completist or the aspiring jazz student than it is for the casual listener, but those who prefer the power and spontanaeity of live over studio will be thoroughly satisfied. The overall technical quality of the recording is passable at best, but the performances from White, along with notable masters Patrice Rushen, Bennie Maupin, Victor Bailey, Donald Blackman, Foley and Mark Ledford, make this a must release for White, and a must own for any fans of White’s post-Return to Forever output. “Wolfbane” and “Pic Pocket” are both worth the price of admission.
