Very, very intense tenor playing. At times disturbingly intense...

Hell, any record that opens with a song called "Pie Crust"...if you grew up in a pie culture, you know what that's about.

This ain't your mildly-interesting early Muse Ricky Ford...this is a guy with something going on inside.

 

Sampled this. You're right -- this is a big step forward from his Muse days, when his playing left me wanting to throw things.

This was recorded in 1999, only a few years after Ford's mother died in the TWA Flight 800 plane crash that also claimed Wayne Shorter's wife, Jon Lucien's daughter and 227 others. She was flying to Paris to visit him. His playing may unintentionally reflect this.

Yeah, post-Muse Ricky Ford gets a lot of interesting a lot of the time. Explore with a modicum of confidence.

Excellent drumming from Jimmy Madison on this one.

 

 

Speaking of post-Muse Ricky Ford, I really like this record:

Ford's "Songs For My Mother" has some great playing on it, including another live version of "Pie Crust". It is intense, particularly the title track:

"Pie Crust"...what a great, knowing title for a piece...such a thing in some cultures, pie crust is, a very personal thing...I tell my kids about it so they recognize that there are pie crusts beyond what you buy at the grocery store place.
