Mama and Daddy

Mama and Daddy is an album by Muhal Richard Abrams that was released on the Italian Black Saint label in 1980 and features performances of four of Abrams' compositions by a big band.


The Allmusic review calls the album "a first-rate big band/large group session from 1980, with Muhal Richard Abrams' compositions being played by a masterful ensemble... adventurous, disciplined, frequently exciting music".[1] The Penguin Guide to Jazz awarded the album 3 stars, stating: "These albums seem even more compelling now than they did when they first came out, because it is clear where the leader's ideas are going".[2] The Rolling Stone Jazz Record Guide said "His finest achievement in any format may be Mama and Daddy; this ambitious set of compositions for a ten piece group, with its masterful blends of brass, strings, and percussion, has a balance in its glowing execution and suggests black chamber music".[3]
