5.00 13

A tremendous set of music – the deepest so far in this amazing series – filled with rare tracks that we've never been able to track down in the original! The grooves here are totally great – lots of modal rhythms and exotic instrumentation – pulled from a time when the European jazz scene was really coming into its own – a key 60s moment when overseas artists were really breaking free from a straight American influence in jazz – and stretching out in unique ways of their own! There's lots of influence from Eastern and other global sources – mixed with beautifully-crafted solos that really further the level of expression of the tunes. The set list is wonderful – way past the European classics of vol 2 – and titles include "Pro Forma 1" by Babs Robert, "Mongolia" by Palle Mikkelborg, "Unknown" by Jeff Gilson, "Vasvirag" by Binder Quintet, "Macedonian Fertility Dance" by Dusko Goykovich, "Samba Miaou" by Full Moon Ensemble, "Barrio Chino" by Dennis Wiley, "Haze's Dance" by Antithesis, "Suite" by Louis Xavier, "Odins Oga" by Jan Allan Quintet, "Aisha" by Yoki Freund, and "Variations On The Azerbajian Mugam Chargiakh" by Crescendo Quintet.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
