Lew Soloff - Hanalei Bay (Electric Bird/ProJazz, 1985)

The rhythm section on this disc -- Gil Evans (el p), Pete Levin (synth), Mark Egan (el b), and Adam Nussbaum (d) -- is drawn from Evans' Monday Night Orchestra, as heard on the recording above.  Soloff played in that band too, of course.

Quite fascinating music, marred a bit by Hiram "The Butcher" Bullock's presence/playing ....

Hmm...  I've never had much of a reaction to Bullock, one way or the other. (My biggest association: Him playing with the "Late Night with David Letterman" band.)

What is it about Bullock's playing bothers you? 

Incidentally, he also appears on Hanalei Bay.

Kenny Graham's Afro-Cubists Volume One - Mango Walk (Esquire, 1951-3)

Nice one, which I don't own but listened to on the YouTubes after reading a reference to it in a blog. From the looks of it, it was a London bebop band, with West African percussionists, playing Afro-Cuban bebop. What I heard is very witty and really enjoyable.

Too loud, too intense, simply way too much rock-oriented presence .... in general I'm not an aficionado of electric guitars, but here in places he dictates the sound of the band .... f.i. Ryo Kawasaki or John Beck had a much better intergrated role in this band ....

Tom Rainey Obbligato - Untucked in Hannover (Intakt, 2021)

First listen to this one. I had high expectations due to the players, but I thought it very disappointing: despite some good solos, I found it a bit too diffuse, serious and without much drive, which I think afflicts a lot of forward thinking modern jazz.

BTW, many thanks for your info on the Sippin' Rioja disc. Not my cup of tea, I am afraid. The disc, not the wine... :)

Ha ha. Indeed.
