Heiner Stadler: Jazz Alchemy by AAJ Italy Staff, published on May 16, 2013. lavoro assolutamente particolare - al di là degli accadimenti di cui sopra - che merita di essere raccontato nel dettaglio. Ne è responsabile il compositore Heiner Stadler, tedesco di nascita (1942) ma attivo a New York dal 1965, quindi in un periodo in cui la scena - come si dice - pullulava non poco. Al 1976 risale la prima versione, ovviamente in vinile, di questo lavoro, con dentro una sezione in duo (Cryspell/Workman, meno di dieci minuti) datata 9 luglio 1974 e una in trio (McGhee/Davis/Brake, quaranta minuti) del 13 agosto.

Heiner Stadler's Jazz Alchemy (LAB 7024) is a transformation more than two decades in the process, comprising wide-ranging variations on two compositions which he wrote in the 60's and 70, and recorded at sessions in 1974, '75, and '88. Classical pianist Joshua Pierce, the duo of Marilyn Crispell (piano) and Reggie Workman (bass), and the trio of trumpeter Charles McGhee (who at times plays two horns at once!), bassist Richard Davis, and drummer Brian Brake take Stadler's song structures beyond genre distinction by sublime acts of musical sorcery.
