BFT 193 Reveal

9 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I have some work commitments which will prevent me from posting this Reveal until May 4, unless I post it today (April 29). I hope that the slightly early Reveal is all right. 

I hope that you enjoy the album title and album artwork for Track 8 as much as I do.

Wow, some really interesting reveals here. I can't believe #5 is Rahsaan!! I really liked that, even moreso when I went back later to relisten. Also surprised at #6, I didn't really care for that one but do generally dig Hemphill. #7 had my interest too. I should really be a lot more familiar with the Either/Orchestra than I am. There was a lot of great stuff here... I am also adding the Muhal and the Ahmed Abdul-Malik to my want list. Track 8 -- haha! :lol:

Thanks so much for your efforts putting this all together. A fun BFT!

Thank you! I am glad you enjoyed it. That Rahsaan album was so common in the mid-1970s, that I thought that everyone would know it. I guess my advanced age is showing. 

Either/ Orchestra has several really good albums, including some of their later ones. After I saw them live I started to buy as many of their albums as I could find. 

I have to admit that I was drawn to the Ed Palmero album by the cover and album title.

Hell, I've owned it since then. And I STILL didn't get it here!!!!

Gotta say, though, that at the time it seemed a little "anti-climactic" so, I've yet to revisit. Might do that again soon.

I will need to find out more about Ed Palmero.  Not familiar with him at all.  I own six of the albums in the BFT (Muhal, Duke, Rahasaan, Either/Orchestra, Abdul-Malik, Mccoy) and didn't get any of them right.  The Teo Macero cut was interesting, but don't expect to ever come by the CD/

Seriously, if Palermo wants his records to sound like that, why doesn't he just do a reverse Toshiko and relocate to LA?

I played it in the past week and was impressed by how good it is.

Ed Palermo has had a big band for many years that has recorded many albums of mostly Frank Zappa compositions. I have not heard those albums  but have read about them. This album is supposedly his turn to his own compositions and jazz standards.

I own Lester Bowie, Duke, Tyner, and Carla Bley.  I got all of them, though in some cases it took some work to get specific. 

Love that Ed Palermo album cover.
