HIT AND RUN

a1196204040_10

We admit that we generally couldn’t care less about bagpipes, but Paul Dunmall’s playing on Hit and Run is nothing short of a revelation. In his hands, it recalls various non-western instruments and conjures up entrancing drones and spiraling patterns. This session with bassist John Edwards and saxophone colossus John Butcher is a tremendous showcase for his unique talents — and a spellbinding soundworld in its own right. Highly recommended.
