Sirone Live


Barely released live, taught trio action from 1991- featuring Sirone, Dennis Charles & Claude Lawrence.

Sirone's pedigree & discography are nearly incomparable: he's played & recorded with legends, saints, enigmas, luminaries and holy ghosts- such as Cecil Taylor, Albert Ayler, Charles Gayle, Ornette Coleman, Roswell Rudd, Clifford Thornton, Sonny Sharrock, Pharoah Sanders & Sun Ra.

"An excellent technician and underrated composer, Sirone was part of the great Revolutionary Ensemble trio in the '70s, and has also worked with many other free bandleaders and groups. His prominent tone and decisive playing expertly meshed with Leroy Jenkins' and Jerome Cooper's on Ensemble recordings and in concert. Sirone worked in Atlanta with a band called The Group in the late '50s and early '60s, then moved to New York in the mid-'60s. He did sessions with Marion Brown, Gato Barbieri, Pharoah Sanders, Noah Howard, and Sonny Sharrock in the late '60s- and also played with Sunny Murray, Albert Ayler, Archie Shepp, Sun Ra, and many others.

Sirone spent six years with the Revolutionary Ensemble, originally forming it with Jenkins and Frank Clayton. He recorded with Clifford Thornton, Roswell Rudd, Dewey Redman, Cecil Taylor, and Walt Dickerson in the '70s and early '80s." ~ Ron Wynn, All Music Guide (excerpted)
