1 - I'm not well versed enough to pinpoint the origin of this style, but I'd say it sounds like something from around the Mediterranean. The percussion stands out, as does whatever stringed instrument is being played. Love the groove too. Seems to be on the BFTs I've done so far that Abdul-Malik is typically involved in recordings like this and maybe he's here too but I don't know. I just dig the song.
2 - The composition sounds Burton-esque. I'm going to guess Gary Burton on the vibes. Dig the sax playing as well. Nice tune.
3 - 2 guitars and a bass is what I'm hearing. No guesses. Beautiful track.
4 - Intro is badass. Bass sounds great. Sounds like a Blue Note date or at least a composition from one of those stable artists...I don't think it's Green on guitar. Maybe Burrell?
5 - This sax player is great. And is that a harpsichord? Wow...I've only heard Tyner jam on that instrument like this before but it doesn't sound like him. Wild.
6 - I was going to say Miles for the trumpet and maybe Evans on piano but the bass is sounding like something from the 70s, so that's out the window. Bass player is jamming though. Sax comes in for the first time about half way through which is interesting. No ideas on who this is. The last half of the song picks up and is really nice.
7 - At first I wanted to say Rypdal but I'm not so sure. The opening synths are great on headphones. Hell, they're great throughout the track. Really like this song.
8 - Ellington's band? It's a track I've heard before but can't remember the name. Great stuff. Excellent trombone playing for sure. My favorite track of this BFT.
9 - Evans? Tune is so familiar but I can't name it.
