Lenny Pickett with The Borneo Horns


Dancable, avant-edged acoustic jazz, performed only with winds and percussions by New York's Borneo Horns Trio and guests. Leader of trio, the once Tower Of Power reedman, Lenny Pickett, well known also as arranger/ horn section director in many popular artists' albums. Pickett plays tenor sax, clarinets, flutes (pre-recorded flutes & clarinets in "Solo For Saxophone And Tape"). The rest two Borneos are saxophonists Stan Harrison (alto) and Steve Elson (baritone, soprano). Leroy Clouden is on drums. The set though isn't completed without the eclectic contributions of  Nelson Bogart on trumpet and flugerhorn, Laurie Frink also on trumpet, Howard Johnson on tuba, DaveBargeron on tuba and trombone, Roger Squitero on  various percussions and Ned Sublette on banjo.
The album recorded in NY and released in 1987 on Carthage, sublabel of Hannibal Records.

I`m sure they are amazing but from the list of musicians you've shared I have the strange feeling that the trio is no trio at all...

I stand to be corrected!
