Survival Research present a reissue of
Terry Gibbs & Alice Coltrane's jazz album
El Nutto, originally released in 1963. Before joining vibraphonist
Terry Gibbs' quartet in 1962, Detroit-born pianist
Alice McLeod played intermissions at the Paris Blue Note and appeared on French TV with saxophonist
Lucky Thompson, reaching Gibbs' attention in a duo with vibraphonist
Terry Pollard; in the quartet, she became the perfect foil for Gibbs, her understated piano making room for his intense improvisation, stepping up with her own expression when needed.
