✨✧ John Zorn/Nova ExpressOn Leaves Of Grass ... CD
Tzadik, 2014. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime sounds composed by John Zorn – ostensibly in tribute to the great Walt Whitman, but actually some of the most tuneful, melodic music we've ever heard from Zorn himself! John doesn't play on the record – just composes, arranges, and conducts – and the music spins magically from a quartet that includes John Medeski on piano, Kenny Wollesen on vibes, Trevor Dunn on bass, and Joey Barron on drums – a group with this beautiful sort of cyclical flow, one that never dies throughout the course of the record at all – and which really keeps compelling throughout! The vibes are especially wonderful – placed with a hard sense of chrome, but almost always in a very tuneful way – and titles include "The Body Electric", "Halcyon Days", "Whispers Of Heavenly Death", "Mystic Cyphers", and "America".

✨✧ Joe McPhee & Hamid DrakeEmancipation Proclamation – A Real Statement Of Freedom ... CD
Okka Disk, 2000. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A late 90s record, but one that we might easily put next to similar spiritual improv albums from the 70s – a fantastic meeting of both artists at Chicago's Empty Bottle – with Joe McPhee on pocket trumpet and tenor, and Hamid Drake on some amazing drums and percussion! Drake's wonderfully open, fluid sense of sound is a great match for McPhee here – really opening up a side of Joe's music in a way that's a bit different than some of his other recordings of the time, including his Okka Disk material – spirited, but never stressed – exploratory, yet always with a strong sense of direction. Titles include "Hate Crime Cries", "Cries & Whispers", "Mother Africa", and "Emancipation Proclamation". Very spare, but very moving – in the manner of some of the early work by the Art Ensemble of Chicago! CD
