The New Year is off to a rousing start in the modern jazz world with the advent of this mini-masterpiece. “BeBop Starburst” effectively illustrates the boundless concepts that could be derived from Be-Bop as a musical art form. The Dunmall Octet could have unknowingly set the stage for a new slant on convention; consequently, Be-Bop acquires new connotations here. Highly Recommended!“ – Glenn Astarita / AllAboutJazz
Sympathetically produced by Evan Parker, Bebop Starburst is an important addition to Paul’s growing body of works, and to the genre known affectionately as „Britjazz“.
“BeBop Starburst is the 2nd release by the brilliant British saxophonist Paul Dunmall and his Octet. All constituents of the extraordinary free jazz band Mujician (see February 1999 Modern Jazz Reviews) appear on this project; however, this is not Mujician plus “4” as some might expect. “BeBop Starburst” aggressively takes on its own identity from the onset.
