MAGGIE NICOLS/LINDSAY COOPER/JOELLE LEANDRE-LIVE AT THE BASTILLE, LP, 1982, UK/FRANCE




As requested by Tom, Live At The Bastille features lovely concatenations of Leandre's swooping, purring and groaning double bass and Ex-Henry Cow bassoonist Lindsay Cooper's alternately starchy, splattery, grunting and trilling bassoon and sopranino sax flurries, both serving as a perfect foil for the non-stop scatting songbird jibber-jabber and off-the-cuff persona adoption of legendary British improv vocal nutter Nichols, who may have reached the peak of her inspired twittering and nattering here.
