There's a line between too much and just right, and it fascinates me how nobody here seems to care on which side they're on at any given time. Suffice it to say that when the trifecta of Hampton/Sebesky/Maiden got busy on both sides of the paper, a bit more attention to that got paid and that's why the Roulette set (and the Cameo & Mainstream records that followed). But this one here in not unlistenable at all, far from it. It's just a bit...splattery in terms of dynamics.

Some good soloing, too!

Excellent - have the  RCA vinyls

Outstanding platter .... not known by many ....

Totally unknown to me.  Will give it a listen.  Mickey Tucker's presence is always a plus.

Thanks for the heads-up.  :tup

I can't help it - This artist's name always brings back memories of some of the craziest posts I ever saw on a forum. Still blows my mind to think that the person thought that was OK.

Bit of a Lee Morgan marathon: Taru, Sidewinder, Search for the New Land and Tom Cat. Tom Cat was the best of the bunch by far despite some gems in the other albums. Then moved on to Parlan's Spur of the Moment and it's better than every one of those Morgan sessions.

This bunch don't get talked about much. I've only recently discovered Varner and Previte.

It just seems more focused & compositional to me than the few others I've tried. Could be Shipp's influence. Not sure. He's done others with Shipp, but this one just resonated more with me.

As I listened to it more it comes across as Shipp guiding the playing, with Perelman frequently playing off of him. Kind of like a situation where Shipp and Dickey were the rudder for the session - and it's a really strong hand to the point where I was kind of surprised it's a "Perelman" trio recording. That doesn't really matter much in the end, but it was an impression I had. Regardless, it's a great album and left me wanting more from this trio, so hopefully there's more to come. 

And since I loved Dickey & Shipp so much on that record, NP is:

Received as a gift. Maynard had some excellent players and writers then, and the band definitely enjoys playing with their own spirit and flayvor. I still enjoy it also, on occasion. It's been such an occasion the last few days.

Archie Shepp "Steam" Enja/Solid Records Japan cd

Bass – Cameron Brown
Drums – Beaver Harris
Tenor Saxophone, Piano – Archie Shepp

Steam is what you need while watching the snow fall. Brown and Harris make a great team for Shepp here.

Yesterday was the birthday of one of my favorite composers and musicians, Antonio Carlos Jobim. I'll celebrate today as I missed yesterday as an opportunity.

SFJazz Collective "Compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim & Original Compositions" disc 1, the really well done arrangements of Jobim's works, which are freed from Bossa nova tropes and cliches.
