Some Trees

CD (Item 612758) Hat Hut (Switzerland), 2006 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.70 5

A very fresh-voiced set from the Brooklyn scene – almost an early expression of the rich sounds we've come to expect lately from all the players involved! In addition to Daniel Levin's bass, the set also features Nate Wooley on trumpet, Matt Moran on vibes, and Joe Morris on double bass – echoing older modern jazz modes from the 60s, especially the "new thing" era – while also exploring fresh sonic territory of their own – especially on some of the spare numbers that have individual players really dominating key moments in the music. Titles include "Some Trees", "Wickets", "Out To Lunch", "It's For You", "Zolowski", and "Wild Palms".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Soul Zodiac
Capitol (UK), 1972. New Copy
One of the coolest, baddest, funkiest albums Cannonball Adderley ever recorded – a massive suite of tunes based on the signs of the Zodiac, produced to perfection by David Axelrod, and featuring some hip recitations from the mighty Rick Holmes! The double-length set is completely compelling ... CD

Enter
Rune Grammafon (Germany), 2014. New Copy
One of the coolest, wildest performances we've ever heard from the Fire Orchestra – an expanded version of a core jazz combo that includes Mats Gustafsson on tenor – but which here has grown to a very bold lineup of musicians with a trio of voices as well! The album features one long ... CD

Project Elo
Jazzman (UK), 2014. New Copy

Mental Shake
OTOroku (UK), 2014. New Copy Gatefold
A brilliant free improvisation from a really great lineup – a quartet that brings together the legendary reed work of Peter Brotzmann and the vibes of Jason Adasiewicz – already great enough on their own, but matched here with the bass of John Edwards and drums of Steve Noble – ... CD

Jacana
Rune Grammafon (Germany), 2014. New Copy
A fierce combination of piano and percussion – the former by Sten Sandell, the latter by Paal Nilsson Love – two very well-matched improvisers! The tracks here are mostly long and dynamic – very freewheeling performances by both musicians, but at a level that really holds strong ... CD

Spring Rain
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1971. New Copy
One of the few albums ever cut by reedman Rudolph Johnson – a hell of a saxophonist, and one with a great ability to combine the spiritual with the searing – a bit like Joe Farrell at his CTI best, but not as freewheeling – nicely focused, and a little bit funky in all the right ... CD

Talk To My Lady
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1973. New Copy
Some of the hippest sounds we've ever heard from pianist Gene Russell – an album that features heavy use of Fender Rhodes – and a soulful, solid, rhythmic core that comes from the basslines of Henry Franklin, guitar of Calvin Keys, and drums of Ndugu Chancler! The set's one of the ... CD
