A freewheeling workout in the classic ESP mode. Wright's hard tenor is set against the bass of Henry Grimes and the drums of Tom Price. (In a way, this is like Grimes' ESP record, with Wright in the place of Perry Robinson.) Three long tracks, with lots of room for Wright to wail. Tracks include "The Moon", "Jerry", and "The Earth". (What a treat for Deadheads – to have Jerry between the Earth and the Moon!) LP, Vinyl record album
(Back cover has images of ESP covers up to 1028, and the inner label is white with black type and a 5th Ave address. In wonderful shape!)
This is a late 60's reissue of an early 60's album originally titled In A Minor Groove. These tracks show Dorothy at her early best, and jamming (yes, that's right, jamming) on the harp along with her quartet that included Frank Wess on flute, Herman Wright on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. And while the idea of a harp/flute lineup might sound a bit snoozy to you – this isn't some west coast poofy session, but a nicely soulful batch of tracks that shows that the right group can make any set of instruments swing! Titles include "Rascality", "Taboo", "Yesterdays", and "It's A Minor Thing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has some pen on back.)
Peter Brotzmann —
Alarm ... LP FMP (Germany), 1981. Near Mint- ...
An incredible record that's every bit as bracing as you might guess from the title – a real standout in Peter Brotzmann's catalog of the 1980s, and an album that returns him to the sheer raw power of his late 60s classics! Alarm is a live performance dominated by Brotzmann's composition of the same name – "Alarm" – a work of very unusual textures, based around graphic instructions for response to a nuclear emergency! Brotzmann has the larger group moving through waves and bursts of sound – carried off wonderfully by performers who include Toshinori Kondon on trumpet, FrankWright and Willem Breuker on saxes, Alan Tomlinson on trombone, Harry Miller on bass, Louis Moholo on drums, and Alexander Von Schlippenbach on piano. The concert also features a performance of FrankWright's "Jerry Sacem" – and was supposed to last longer, except that the building was evacuated in the middle of the show because of a bomb threat! LP, Vinyl record album
(Great original pressing!)
