    Don't Lose Control

    • Year Released: 1980
    Don't Lose Control is a live album by American jazz pianist Don Pullen and saxophonist George Adams recorded in 1979 for the Italian Soul Note label. The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars stating "Tenor saxophonist George Adams and pianist Don Pullen first joined forces in Charles Mingus' band of the 1970s and, upon the great bassist's death, they formed their own dynamic quartet, resulting in many recordings (mostly for European labels). Don't Lose Control, although their fourth record together, was the first to gain much recognition... This set is not quite as essential as some of the Adams-Pullen Quartet's later releases, but worth picking up".

    Earth Beams

    • Year Released: 1980
    Earth Beams is a studio album recorded by noted jazz performers George Adams and Don Pullen as the George Adams/Don Pullen Quartet. Adams and Pullen had met through their work with composer and double-bassist Charles Mingus, who had died the year the Adams/Pullen Quartet began in 1979. According to Neil Tesser, "The participation of Dannie Richmond, Mingus's longtime drummer and protégé, only strengthened the sense that they were continuing on in Mingus's footsteps." Recorded in Holland in August 1980, Earth Beams features screeching solos from Adams and "tightly wound chord clusters" from Pullen.

    Live at Montmartre

    • Year Released: 1985
    Live at Montmartre is a live album by the George Adams-Don Pullen Quartet with guitarist John Scofield recorded in 1985 for the Dutch Timeless label. The Allmusic review by Don Snowden awarded the album 3 stars stating "Live at Montmarte isn't all it could have been, but sometimes things just don't happen. It sounds like Scofield and the group never found a truly comfortable common ground. They don't clash, but it never feels like they're totally in synch, either, at least not enough to reach the greater-than-the-sum-of-the-quartet-with-guest-soloist-parts level".
