You know, I used to have to defend Wearther Report/Zawinual against the stickuptheirassjazzpurists about the synths, and my first - and still primary - line is that hey, colors, textures unique to electronics, not imitating "real" instruments but being real instruments.

So it was in the liner notes to either Quasar or Dragonfly, or maybe some interview, i forget, where they say something about "sounds like you've been listening to Weather Report, whaddup with that, Mr. Silence humming trioman?" And his response was - textures, I love the textures.

Well, yeah. DUH! :g

If Joe Biden was a jazz fan, I bet he'd say, "NEVER bet against the Jimmy Giuffre people!"

Yep. Good memory. What you're talkin' about is in the liner notes to Quasar;)

Love it when the memory actually works...the impressions are still always good, but the details....some days are better than others.

Funnily enough I saw a blue label copy of that pressing in the racks here for not much £ and passed. Real curio. The MPS releases are quite common over here, either German, UK or French pressed.

It was first released on SABA, which changed its name to MPS in 1968. I just checked and my copy is in fact the SABA issue.

Dude, when were double-breasted jackets THAT short ever a good idea? Even with white slacks?

Looks like a freaking uniform. What was Terrence wearing?

No, a too-short double-breasted has never been hip.

Now that red and green shit, that's hip. Hangs well.

Donald Harrison knows sharp, though. Pretty , too.

Terence Blanchard looks like a baby, I always had the impression he has a baby face. As much as I remember from their time with Blakey (I think I saw them with Art somewhere in the mid 80´s , Terence Blanchard played some very very fine, pretty trumpet, and Donald Harrison played very "abstract", sometimes quite atonal, a bit unusual for a band like the Messengers. Don´t misunderstand me, I am hip to free jazz and don´t need it only "smooth", but I remember Donald Harrison´s alto sounded strange in those surroundings.
