Splendid

LP (Item 558008) Elektra, 1978 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

Acoustic duets between Larry Coryell and Philip Catherine – recorded with a style that's much more intimate and personal than some of the previous recordings by either player! Although Coryell first rose to fame at the end of the 60s with his fuzzy approach to jazz fusion, he's clearly mellowed here nicely with age – and has a nice sense of space and color, that's only further augmented by Catherine's always-great range of sounds and styles. Joachim Kuhn plays acoustic piano on one track, but all other information is from both players on 6 and 12 string acoustic guitars, plus a bit of work by Catherine on a fretless electric. Titles include "No More Booze", "Deux Xango", "Snowshadows", "One Plus Two Blues", "Father Christmas", "A Quiet Day In Spring", and "The Train & The River".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A post-Blue Note effort, and Donald's changing things up a bit with his 125th Street Orchestra and Uptown Singers – funking along in a way you'd expect from the longwinded title!

Two sides of McLaughlin, both showcasing his spiritual exploratory inclination.

A classic bit of early 80s fusion – from this supergroup that included Michael Brecker on tenor, Eliane Elias on piano, Peter Erskine on drums, Eddie Gomez on bass, and Mike Maineri on vibes!
