Avrey Sharron —
Oasis ... LP Krypton/Aartrud (Netherlands), 1977. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
Sweet electric funk from the Tel Aviv scene of the 70s – a real rarity on vinyl, and a set that has a soulful groove to match the best American albums of the time! Guitarist Avrey Sharron has a lean line with a nice sense of space – especially nice on some of the mellower, moodier numbers – but also aflutter with colorful tunes at some more upbeat spots too! His guitar is the main instrument in the lead, alongside bass and drums – but one track also features loads of excellent electric piano from Doodie Rosenthal, who works with Sharron on a killer ten minute take on "This Masquerade". Other tracks include "Black Sunshine", "Ruthie's Waltz", "Oasis", and "O Morro". LP, Vinyl record album
Timeless avant grooves from Isotope 217! We can remember when these guys were just a loose collective of musicians, playing Miles-influenced spacey jazz jams in unadvertised Monday night gigs at Chicago's legendary Rainbo Room. On record they've metamorphosized into one of the most distinctive groups in the late 90s Chi scene –inflecting experimental rock with a more jazz-oriented sensibility. Titles include "Kryptonite Smokes The Red Line", "Prince Naymor", "Audio Boxing", "Beneath The Undertow", and "La Jetee". LP, Vinyl record album
Killer stuff throughout – a classic session from the late 60s that has Wayne Shorter pushing into a searching, spiritual groove, but one that's still filled with all the taught electricity of his earlier recordings on Blue Note! Shorter's accompanied by youthful modernists like James Spaulding on alto, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – plus the mighty Curtis Fuller on trombone, whose instrument here proves to be the same key extra ingredient that it was on the best Art Blakey sextet sessions of the 60s. There's a tight, soulful feel here that's sublime – an Adams Apple sort of groove, but a bit fuller – and titles include the classic "Tom Thumb", plus "Playground", "Schizoprhenia", "Kryptonite", "Miyako", and "Go".
