About the album

Stunt are proud to be able to reissue two exceptional Ed Thigpen lp’s from 1973 and ’74. Since 1972 the legendary drummer has been an integral part of the Danish jazz scene, and he has never merely rested on the laurels won during his time with Oscar Peterson’s Trio, Ella Fitzgerald and other jazz masters. He has always wanted to be part of the musical development, and already when he settled in this country he could be heard in different “hip” contexts - here with Action-re-action (with, among others, Palle Mikkelborg) and the AsmussenThigpen Quartet, very live on the recording RESSOURCE made in Jazzhus Montmartre.

Ed Thigpen, just turned 75, is still full of life, active and greatly loved. So we wish him a heartfelt happy birthday - and congratulate all lovers of great jazz music on having one of the giants living and playing among us.

It is hard to understand that more than 30 years have gone by since these epoch-making recordings were made. (It should be mentioned that the music has been re-mastered on the basis of the original tapes, that the original cover art has been maintained, and that the release consists of two single cd’s in one combined package!)
