CD


4.80 5

Freewheeling, open-ended work from this vibrantly creative trio – working here in a style that's not unlike some of the more offbeat work on ECM in the early days! And by that, we don't mean the atmospheric sounds – but the rare avant sessions that would show up at the label – particularly the groundbreaking piano work of Paul Bley – as it might be said that Lossing here has a similar feel for sound shapes and circular patterns – a mode that's inherently rhythmic, yet free from most conventional rhythms at the same time! Of course, the other players have a lot to do with that – especially drummer Paul Motian, who's perfect for the set – working here with bassist Ed Schuller, on a set of tracks that features the five-part "Suite Of Time" – plus "Motion Units", "Coyote Jumps", "Nagual", and "Verse".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Somos Agua
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2014. New Copy Gatefold
Tony Malaby brews up some heady work on tenor and soprano sax – often with tones more than deep enough to match the wonderful bass work of William Parker in the trio! Parker plays his instrument with a bow at some key points – and creates these dark waves that really sharpen the edge ... CD

A great title for this one – given that the music here is right up there with the best Phil Ranelin recordings of the 70s! That likeness is no surprise, though – given that the group here is Phil's Tribe Renaissance ensemble – a lineup of players put together to recreate the ... CD

Larry Coryell With The Wide Hive Players
Wide Hive, 2011. New Copy
A really old school jam from guitarist Larry Coryell – one that takes us back to some of the most tripped-out sounds of his early years! Given the cover, you can definitely expect a psychedelic influence to the music – and the group here really helps Larry get back to his roots – ... CD

CD...$9.99 14.99
Very spare sounds from Roscoe Mitchell and drummer Tyshawn Sorey, but still very sharp-edged too – and in a way, a mix of deeper thoughts and spontaneous energy that reminds us a lot of some of the more "out there" moments of the Art Ensemble back in the 70s! Roscoe's reeds have ... CD

Turnstyle
Wide Hive, 2013. New Copy
Maybe the best music so far from the Wide Hive Players – a group who draw keen inspiration from a 70s jazz generation, but make things fresh with their own sense of timing and rhythm – a kind of fluid yet laidback approach to soul jazz and funk! The legendary Calvin Keys is on guitar, ... CD

Polydor/Culture Factory (France), 1970. New Copy Gatefold
James Brown cooking it live – recorded (as the cover says) "at home in Augusta, Georgia with his bad self"! The groove here is a nice extension of earlier Apollo modes – one that shows the increasing funkiness of the James Brown Band, captured with a raw power that few other ... CD

High Moon, 1973. New Copy
Arthur Lee and Love's unreleased record from 1973! Black Beauty is a more diverse and soulful set than a lot of what we've heard from Lee's harder rocking 70s years – and it's given a much-deserved top notch release by High Moon Records! It's raw in the best possible sense, with a live feel ... CD
