(1991/Delmark) 6 tracks, Trumpeter Thompson´s second CD for Delmark has the leader surrounding himself with powerful sidemen and tributes to heroes, while emphasizing that the ´jaz´ life (one z purposefully left off) is a struggle to be overcome and to thrive in the midst of. Saxophonists Carter Jefferson and Joe Ford contribute mightily, as they have to projects by Woody Shaw and McCoy Tyner, respectively. Pianist Kirk Brown and bassist Harrison Bankhead play inside and out with equal aplomb, while rhythm navigators like drummer Nasar Abadey and percussionist Richard Lawrence keep things potent and swinging. These six compositions are not only life-affirming, but acknowledgments to such important icons as John Coltrane, Art Blakey, Miles Davis, and some of their important sidemen, who have inspired Thompson during his struggle with a rare lymphomatic cancer. ´In Walked John´ starts the CD off, an original of the leader with a rippling Wayne Shorter-Lee Morgan melody wed to a well swung Louis Jordan R&B beat. Trane-like ´Cousin Mary´ inferences are tacked onto Jefferson´s dusky tenor sax solo and Brown´s McCoy Tyner-esque piano. Another penned by Thompson, this time for the ´Mystic Trumpet Man´ Davis, is a thoroughly modern chart with soulful yet spiritual nuances, and more Chi-town soul flavor injections. ´Lucky Seven,´ a 12-minute composition, has modal, repeated piano chords with horns as an intro, a piano trio workout for the indefatigable Brown, Jefferson going at it on tenor replete with ´A Love Supreme´ quotes from the trumpeter, a drum solo for the underrated Abadey, and a polyphonic, multi-layered free section leading to the coda. The other three are standards, one a gospel-blues treatment of the Ray Charles classic ´Drown in My Own Tears´ in a total team concept. ´My Romance,´ taken in an easy tempo, has Thompson´s solidly rearranged ostinato to 3/4 sped-up breaks -- far from a rote approach to this tried and true melody. Jefferson´s stick-to-your-ribs solo -- echoes of Gene Ammons by way of Trane/Sonny Rollins -- is grounded and centered in freshness and parameter-pushing. Billy Harper´s immortal waltz ´Croquet Ballet,´ done originally by Lee Morgan, is sweet and faithful to no fault with the three horns, perhaps a little tamer in its stratospheric catharsis, but no less enjoyable. Thompson really hits the note consistently with this band of modern mainstream jazz masters performing at their best. Recommended.(AllMusic)

RITUAL TRIO - Renaissance Of The Resistance
15,95 € *
zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

(1994/Delmark) 7 tracks In 1993, drummer Kahil El´Zabar and his Chicago-based Ritual Trio (which also includes saxman Ari Brown and bassist Malachi Favors) joined the Delmark roster with Renaissance of the Resistance, an excellent inside/outside date that contains mostly original material. This CD underscores the fact that not all avant-garde jazz is atonal free jazz, on the whole, this is quite musical and melodic. That is true of the funky ´Ornette´ (as in Ornette Coleman), as well the evocative title song and the haunting ´Sweet Meat.´ Meanwhile, ´Trane in Mind´ recalls John Coltrane´s modal period of the early to mid-1960s -- it isn´t the sort of hard bop that the saxman favored in the late 1950s, nor is it the sort of blistering, atonal free jazz that he got into during the last few years of his life. Unlike the bop snobs who are content to spend their lives hearing the same old standards done the same old way, El´Zabar has very eclectic tastes -- the Chicagoan has stated that his taste in music ranges from soul man Jackie Wilson to traditional Bulgarian choirs. And, true to form, he brings a healthy appreciation of world music to this album, combining jazz with African, Middle Eastern, and Asian influences. In fact, the title song and the peaceful ´Golden Sea´ find El´Zabar stretching out on the African thumb piano -- and why not? There is no law stating that a traditional African instrument cannot be used as a jazz instrument. Although 1999´s Africa N´da Blues is arguably the best album that the Ritual Trio provided in the 1990s, Renaissance of the Resistance runs a close second. (AllMusic)

Ed Petersen - The Haint
15,75 €

zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

(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.

5,95 € *
zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

• Preiswerte CD-Zusammenstellung mit 16 Nummern aus den Tropen. • Tanzflächenfüller, Reggae, Soca und cooler Jazz. • Mit einer Bearbeitung von Leston Pauls super seltenem Caribbean Jam durch den Berliner DJ Nomad. • Sorgfältig aus dem Backkatalog von Cree Records ausgewählt. • Ästhethische Verpackung und stylisches Artwork, sorgfältig gemastert. Peepz, der Sommer steht bevor! Kommt mit auf einen Trip durch tropische und sonnige Klimazonen und frischt euren tristen, grauen Alltag mit einigen heißen Tunes aus dem Backkatalog von Cree Records auf. In den letzten fünf Jahren hat Cree Records eine breite Vielfalt von Musik aus tropischen Gefilden veröffentlicht. Ob Afro-Boogie aus Ghana oder Folk-Jazz aus Trinidad, diese Compilation beweist, dass die Tropen viel mehr zu bieten haben, als sonst im allgemeinen so angenommen wird. ´´Wajang Woman´´ von Embryo (hier als Frankie Francis Sofrito Edit), Barbara Hernandez´ ´´All Nite Tonight´´ und Michael Boothmans ´´Tabu´´ oder ´´Can´t Stop Dancing´´: Die meisten Tracks auf diesem Album sind bereits etablierte Dancefloor Filler. Aber es gibt in diesem Jahr noch mehr zu entdecken, wie z.B. den Latin-Funk Track ´´Trinidad´´ von Papa Music von der in diesem Frühjahr erscheinenden Compilation ´´Gotta Nice Buzz - The Funky Side of Sound Studios Trinidad´´ oder Merchant´s funky Soca ´´Rub-A-Dub Soka´´ von einer Compilation mit Musik von Trinidads Network Riddum Band. Exklusiv für diese Compilation hat der Berliner DJ Nomad sich Leston Pauls super seltenen Song ´´Caribbean Jam´´ vorgenommen und dem Track ein amtliches Re-Edit verpasst. So, genug gesagt! Und denkt daran, Tanzen ist der beste Weg, um seinen ´´Winterspeck´´ loszuwerden. Denn der Sommer steht bevor!
