When Freedom Swings; Ira Wiggins, tenor sax and flutes. The title of this two CD set suggests that jazz, as an art form, equates to the ideals of democracy. It is improvisational music with contributions from various players, all within a certain established boundary. Wiggins, Director of Jazz Studies at North Carolina Central University, has gathered a group of outstanding players to play (mostly) his own compositions on CD #1, and those of others on #2. Wiggins possesses a classic, swinging approach on tenor and an understated, subtle touch on flute. He's the kind of tenor player who would have become "big time" in 1950s New York.
Wiggins is a "major league" player who just happens to be one of those guys who's quite content being the big fish in the small pond. His two cd set is really what the jazz art is all about. Twiggs Music; 2012; CD #1: appx. 44 minutes; CD #2: appx. 52 minutes.
