The Gearbox Explodes succeeds because Murray, tenor and bass saxophonist Tony Bevan and bassist John Edwards are each fearless and have, over time, developed a level of group empathy which enables deep and vigorous interaction. The closing The Gearbox Explodes is another incident-packed collective workout, its first 10 minutes performed over funky drum and bass lines, before moving into free rhythm, still with an R&B feel, for the second half. Another remarkable album from this hard-wired trio. Track Listing. Right On Guys Hold It Right There The Gearbox Explodes Personnel.

Likewise, Sunny Murray beat new paths around the kit with Cecil Taylor in the 1960s, but a double booking at a Newcastle jazz club last year saw his trio decamp to the working men's club opposite. You can sense Sunny's boys start to snag the regular drinkers during the first of three lengthy binges. The saxophonist Bevan relishes accompanying a legend Edwards is the best bassist in Britain.

The jazz drummer Sunny Murray, who has died 81, was a particularly free-thinking descendant from those African origins. Murray also struck up a productive relationship with the British saxophonist Tony Bevan and the double bassist John Edwards, documented on the unexpectedly intimate and delicate album The Gearbox Explodes 2006 and the studio session I Stepped Onto a Bee 2010. Strength and intensity at the drumkit were the variables that mattered most to Murray and he felt convinced in the late 1960s that he was the one drummer capable of conveying the new levels they had then reached in jazz. Album Review Archive. Sunny Murray, John Edwards and Tony Bevan I Stepped Onto A Bee. Posted by Stewart Lee Saturday, June 11th, 2011. Working with Cecil Taylor and Albert Ayler in the Sixties, Sunny Murray, the Dr Who of the drumkit, escaped the tyranny of time. Here he teams again with his British collaborators, the saxophonist Tony Bevan and John Edwards, the European improvisers bass player of choice. Bevan and Edwards are in uncharacteristically bluesalicious mode here. Having spent a lifetime dodging melodies in search of transcendence, they circumnavigate the carvery to load up on fat licks
