Part of the Touchstone series
A guitarist’s guitarist, Bill Connors has always had the admiration of his peers. Steve Tibbetts recently praised Connors’s “left-hand vibrato, his sense of space, his liquid phrasing, the way he lingers on a note” – all qualities in evidence on 1977’s Of Mist and Melting.
Jazz Journal: “The combination of Connors’s predominantly cool linearity and DeJohnette’s patented rolling and tumbling creates a very special blend of poetic contemplation and rhythmic vitality.”
Personnel: Bill Connors (guitar); Jan Garbarek (saxophones); Gary Peacock (double bass); Jack DeJohnette (drums)
