First time I see that edition.
NOW is the time to get on to the real deal with Mr. Vandermark & the *great* Hamid Drake!!! Go directly to DKV Trio Live in Wels & Chicago. The "K" is for Kent Kessler and he is on the double bass and the year is 1998 and the performances (especially from The Velvet Lounge on disc 2) are incredible. Hamid is breaking into his prime here. The grooves are invented and beyond genre. Really no one like him. Last 2 tracks from the Velvet are 43 minutes plus of one of the finest examples of post-Coltrane free jazz. A few of us call it "the music" or something as no one has found an apt label for the vast variety of modern creative out of the box free jazz. The Chicago strain is a big part of it.
Very glad you've been exposed to the great man.
Next step is with the great tenorman Fred Anderson with his long time drummer. I suggest the expertly recorded 2 CD set on eremite with William Parker on bass - recorded live at Johnson State in Vermont in December 2004. You may never hear jazz drumming the same ever again.
One day you're coming due south to NYC to see drummers like this live up close & personal. No one more exciting from close up in a small room than Hamid Drake. Well except for Nasheet Waits, Tom Rainey, Andrew Cyrille, Ches Smith, Gerry Hemingway, Han Bennink, and of course, Randy Peterson.
It was the second label from Track around 1970.
Marvelous album. I can't get enough of "Rain Dance".
Black Joe Lewis and the Honey Bears. nasty funk.
Saw this guy this weekend with a full band. What a talented young artist. The sound of aloha comes through in any format or style.
Paradise is more than just a place
So wait on this moment
Wait on this day to be yours.
Have a soft spot for this record.
Just finished a Flying Burrito Bros. compilation, and now John Prine, Diamonds In The Rough
Hey man, did the blue on your Sgt. Pepper lava lamp fade away really quickly? Mine sure did, and it looks like yours has as well.
There was blue on there ? Where ?
Guess that answers my question.
If there was, it is long gone
In my opinion, the best Deep Purple album from the 1967-1976 period. Eclectic, somewhat experimental, and loaded with deep cuts.
Listening to disc 1.
This band could play anything.
im a big fan of the first three records, so i'm a little biased. But This Desert Life and Wish I Was A Girl are two of the finest songs ever recorded. These guys turned into old men with no real direction but in the 90's they were as good as a band could be.
The Pompeii set from the box set. I hate the mastering, but I simply adore the performances. Ain't it disgusting when that happens?
R.A.'s Gold! Great album!!! It's packed with rockie goodness.
I went to Radiohead with Crispy Rob on Tues., who scored me a face value ticket because Mrs. Crispy could not make it. I drank 64 oz. of Torpedo IPA. It is aptly named because it blew a hole into the side of my Wed. work day, and I was taking on water throughout.
Anyway, great show.
