Moodier music than you might guess from the lush image on the cover – a really evocative mix of acoustic and electronic elements – filtered together in ways that lie somewhere between the world/jazz experiments of 70s Sweden, and some of the more creative moments at ECM! The music's performed by the duo of Mari Kvien Brunvoll and Stein Urheim – who each sing a bit, play various percussion instruments, and work some cool tape effects to kind of flesh out the sound – yet often in ways that preserve the acoustic core of the instrumentation. Stein uses some extra-cool "fretless bouzouki" – and Mari plays a kalimba quite nicely, too – and titles include "Voss", "We're So Many", "I Don't Wanna Go", "Paradoxes", "Don't Mind", and "Sleeping In The Bush".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Prestige, 1964. New Copy (reissue)
Soulful and pounding! Joe Dukes is one of the greatest soul jazz drummers ever – the key to the unique sound that Jack McDuff had during his big rise to fame in the mid 60s, a combination of tightly funky rhythms underneath, with a freer approach to the top of the kit that worked perfectly ...
