Maria Grand - Reciprocity

whatever brought me here... first reaction: someone took Steve Coleman's super dry music and tried to bring it back to life... sometimes, she may have taken stuff too literally, and the singing is what it is... but I would argue that it did work to the point where I much rather listen to this than to a recent Steve Coleman recording. recommended.

Today in the car this Jelly Roll Morton compilation, which was a bonus from a discogs seller last week. I have it all in other reissues, so I will pass it on to a friend.

The date with Pee Wee Russell! He and Wilson, however unlikely it may seem, were a lovely musical pair.

With the great Freddie Hill, Lou Blackburn combination. And sorry for the Amazon ad. It was the only image I found.

Greg Osby - 3-D Lifestyles (Blue Note, 1993)

R-7199568-1435990679-9459.jpeg.jpg

One of the more full blooded attempts at hip hop crossover. For once, one I think that is semi successful.

That may just be my prompt to dig it out. Years since I listened to it. I remember enjoying it, with some reservations, at the time.

I didn't listen to it at the time, but I think it has aged okay. At least you get a sense that Osby understood hip hop and wasn't just making a play for credibility: there is a real attempt at fusion, even if it sometimes isn't as good as either genre. It helps that Osby is one of the few horn players who I think doesn't sound trapped by loops, and that the quality of the MCing and production is pretty high.

I listened to that one yesterday. I enjoyed it more than his other recent albums.

Yes, the two (?) subsequent albums are disappointing.

This type of choreography was an impressive art form (not a fan of that CGI angel however). There's a video of the Delfonics doing something similar...here it is:

Started off with this one again. Once you fully embrace the fact that this is a film soundtrack tribute album in important ways, and accept the instrumentation, arrangements and "drama," there is much to enjoy here, especially in the guitar and piano solos, and there's also a prog-rock feel to portions that appeals to the long-unprovoked old prog rock fan in me.

Indeed!

That particular video was selected for the WTF? factor of not just the CGI angel, but of the whole thing, period. I like the reminder of how the passage of time often leads to an inability to just leave well enough alone. For that, there's this:

Loved  that tune when I was a kid.

The bit about choreography reminds me of this.
