LP, Vinyl record album

4.60 5

A really well-chosen title – given that the album is one of the most spiritual sides we've ever heard from Marilyn Crispell – thanks to a trio that also features Billy Bang on violin and John Betsch on drums! Bang is wonderful here – with that perfect approach to the violin that's unlike any of his contemporaries – almost a long-sung mode that stretches out beautifully to wrap around the rest of the group – in ways that are quite similar to his excellent Black Saint recordings. Betsch is powerful on drums – easily matching Crispell's frenzy on the piano – and Wes Brown also joins the group on guitar for one track. Titles include "Rounds", "For Atsuko", "Stoic", and "Spirit Music".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Prestige (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing album that has Art Blakey completely reinventing himself for the 70s! Blakey shifts from straight hardbop to kind of a modal soul jazz groove, touched with some of the electric playing of the younger jazz generation, but not enough to qualify as fusion or funk. Instead, he's working ... LP, Vinyl record album
