Bennie Maupin

Biography

Fromwikipedia

Bennie Maupin (born August 29, 1940) is a Detroit Michigan jazz multireedist. He performs on various saxophones, flute and bass clarinet. He is probably best known for his participation in Herbie Hancock's Mwandishi sextet and Headhunters band, and for performing on Miles Davis's seminal fusion record, Bitches Brew. Maupin has collaborated with Horace Silver, Roy Haynes, Woody Shaw, Lee Morgan and many others. He has also performed on several Meat Beat Manifesto albums. He is noted for having a harmonically-advanced, "out" improvisation style, while having a different sense of melodic direction than other "out" jazz musicians such as Eric Dolphy. Maupin was also a member of Almanac, a group with Cecil McBee (bass), Mike Nock (piano) and Eddie Marshall (drums).

A truly innovative, spiritually motivated musician, Bennie Maupin can additionally be heard at his exhilarating best in the stunning boxed set: "Lee Morgan Live at the Lighthouse", recorded - obviously - at The Lighthouse, Hermosa Beach California on July 10, 11 & 12 1970. His sublime performance on the haunting "Neophilia" surely makes time stand still. A must hear.
Furthermore, "Penumbra" - readily accessible via Youtube - is passionately recommended listening.
