(2017/Modern Harmonic) 10 Tracks - Digipack! Beyond Hip! From Cool Jazz to Hard Bop! This extraordinary soundtrack, featuring many of the finest jazz musicians this side of anywhere, is a collection of small ensemble and large band arrangements so perfectly indicative of its era. It’s beyond hip and runs the gamut from cool jazz to hard bop. Moreover, it authorized the virtuosic freedom of the best of New York’s jazz community. The swingingly cinematic score was commissioned for a Sexploitation classic entitled Satan in High Heels, the story of a woman caught in the decadent nightlife of the Big City. Mundell Lowe’s compositions aptly complement and enhance the story’s mood and atmosphere while often juxtaposing humor with strains of profound symbolism. The score, a stellar example of ´´jazz noir” however, is never decaffeinated. It’s relentlessly vibrant and engaging. Mundell Lowe’s virtuosity knows virtually no bounds. His comprehensive and artistic musicality has placed him in among the top players in jazz. In addition to working at both NBC and CBS in New York he was the staff guitarist for Dave Garroway’s original Today Show. Both the film, and this score are respective examples of classic cult cinema. The music is often sensuous and sexy but at times as tough as a two-dollar steak. It’s the real deal.
(1994/Delmark) 8 tracks, The year 1994 marked a transition for Ed Petersen, it was in 1994 that the tenor saxophonist left Chicago to accept a teaching position at the University of New Orleans. Chicagoans were surprised to see him leave -- he had been a fixture at a famous Windy City jazz club called the Green Mill. But the offer was too good to pass up, Petersen knew that he would be working with pianist Ellis Marsalis (father of Wynton and Branford) in the University of New Orleans´ jazz department. Recorded when Petersen was getting ready to move, this 1994 session was, in effect, a fond farewell to the jazz community of Chicago. The Haint, Petersen´s second album as a leader, finds him leading an all-Chicago cast that includes Dr. Odies Williams III or Billy Brimfield on trumpet, Willie Pickens on piano, Brian Sandstrom on bass, and Robert Shy on drums. The influence of John Coltrane -- Petersen´s primary influence -- is impossible to miss on this album. It comes through on his own songs (which include the exuberant ´Larry Smith´ and the abstract ´Walking in the Sky´) as well as performances of Thelonious Monk´s ´Green Chimneys,´ Dizzy Gillespie´s ´Bebop,´ and Fats Waller´s ´Jitterbug Waltz.´ Few surprises occur, and no one will accuse Petersen of being the most innovative or forward-thinking player in the world. Nonetheless, his performances are competent and swinging. With The Haint, Petersen ended the Chicago period of his life and did so with enjoyable, if derivative, results.
(1990/Phonogram) 20 tracks - ´´ Brazil with its unison trumpet-growl on the opening, falling into a strong rhythmic pattern, Otra Vez , the raunchy Latin Blues featuring a scintillating alto sax solo and the Carioca , which is truly indicative of the vitality and exciting atmosphere gener-ated on all Chaquito records, and is a magnificent vehicle for no less than 5 brilliant trumpet soloists. Guantanemera is a classic example of a Sound Picture. Sit back and listen as the music takes you from dawn to dusk. Sunrise is heralded by a trumpet solo echoing round a canyon, somewhere in Latin America. The music progresses through a typical working day in sundrenched fields - with a tremendous musical climax depicting the heat of the noonday sun - whereupon the music gradually descends in volume for siesta time...´´

While there is no written melody, there are a number of melodies that one can sing over the existing chord changes.
