CD review: Timeless Allstars – At Onkel PÖ’s Carnegie Hall, Hamburg 1982 – 2019: CD cover

- in New CD's Review

Initially, the name was meant literally – the music produced by this ensemble should be timeless – one should be able to listen to it again and again throughout the years, independently from the prevailing zeitgeist. The title is also absolutely right: they were “All Stars” – true masters in their respective fields.

All the artists who came together to form this artist name have proven – over decades in different bands – that they were masters of jazz: the saxophonist Harold Land, the trombonist Curtis Fuller and Bobby Hutcherson on the vibraphone; they were accompanied by a rhythm section which was always more than just that – with Cedar Walton at the piano, the bassist Buster Williams and Billy Higgins, one of the most outstanding drummers of jazz.
