World of Jazz Podcast 22

Only a half dozen tracks this time but a few of them are pretty lengthy so the time gets filled up……..

  1. Portico Quartet – City of Glass – Live (2013) : out on Monday of this week …..  a double album offering a unique insight into two distinct parts of Portico Quartet’s personality. Live catches the band on tour in 2012 and features tracks from last year’s eponymous album, Portico Quartet, as well as new arrangements of old favourites ‘Clipper’ and ‘Dawn Patrol’.
  2. Sonny Clark – Sonny’s Crib – Sonny’s Conception (2011) : from the Proper Box Set Compilation – this cut was originally recorded on October 9th 1957 with Donald Byrd, Curtis Fuller, John Coltrane (and can’t you just tell when he lets rip!), Paul Chambers and Art Taylor.
  3. Kyle Eastwood – Une Nuit Au Senegal – The View from Here (2013) : Clint’s lad on his bass from his new album. Alongside the bassist, the  line-up is completed by saxophonist Graeme Blevins, trumpeter Quentin Collins, pianist Andrew McCormack and drummer Martyn Kaine. His best to date.
  4. Paraphrase – Poetic License – Visitation Rites (1998) : I’ve been meaning to dip into my somewhat large collection of Berne albums but I have not really had the chance due to the length of most of his compositions. However the opportunity has arisen this time around so here we go. This is his improvising trio with Drew Gress (Bass) and Tom Rainey (Drums).  If you have not heard Berne’s music before be prepared for a singularly unique and sometimes uncompromising  listening experience.
  5. Don Burrows –  The Tasman Connection – The Tasman Connection (1976) : Burrow’s most “electric” studio album, named for the Tasman Sea which separates Australia and New Zealand. The line up is Don Burrows – clarinet, electric clarinet, flute, alto flute, B-flat school flute, percussion; George Golla – seven string electric guitar
    Julian Lee – electric piano, electric organ, flugel horn, trumpet; Andy Brown – bass, electric bass and Frank Gibson Jr. – drums, percussion.
  6. Miles Davis – So What – The Complete Concert: 1964 (My Funny Valentine & “Four More” (1992) : Miles with George Coleman, Ron Carter, Herbie Hancock and Tony Williams at the Lincoln Center’s Philharmonic Hall on February 12th 1964.
