Not Dee Dee, but in that vein. Doug Carn? Could almost be Dee Dee, but voice seems a bit lower. It is Dee Dee! (Not her record though) Track 2 - AH-ha! LOVE this! Track 2 from this. Absolutely love this record. Yep! This one was meant to be kind of a trick, but I haven't fooled many so far... Track 3 - I should have a better idea of who this is. Sounds like a doubler playing tenor. Mwata? Electric bass, that drummer is pinging. Maybe Reggie Nicholson? Rollins influence on the tenor, but can't decide if I like him or not. Love when it goes into the "island" feel about 4:10. You like him, believe me. Track 4 - Trying to do this at work... not my best decision (need some tunes to keep me sane and trust this test presenter in that regard). Bopish theme, but not really picking up on the voices. Not sure on the trumpet. That's Mr. Gilmore's tenor voice. Not sure of the others. Busy drums -- not the stuff I'm familiar with from JG. Bingo on Gilmore! I will tell you that it's the piano player's date. Track 5 - Thought this was going to be a slam dunk of Kahil but now I don't feel that way at all. Could be, but not the slam dunk I was expecting. Oooh... Not familiar enough with Alex Harding's bass clarinet work, but I'm thinking that's what this is from KE'Z's band with AH. I like it, though. Not Kahil, but you are most definitely in the neighborhood. On the same block. Track 6 - Closing track from this. Never fully loved this, but always listen to it. This is one of the tracks that speak less to me on this. You got it. Track 7 - Reminds me of a disc I recently played for you, but it's not that. Similar feel, though the drummer is not so unpredictable. Not sure where I am on this. Kind of like the odd, Tristanoish feel of some of the piano lines in the left hand, but not sold on the drummer. I don't love the drummer either if I'm being honest. I'm in it for the piano player. Track 8 - Not sure on this. A bit more inside than I expect from this presenter. Almost a Grady Tate feel to the drums and almost an Oscar Peterson feel to the piano. I can see why you'd say O.P., and Grady too... neither one of them though. I think you're probably most likely to get the bass player if you listen again. Track 09 - Central Park West. Not sure I’m into the version. Really can’t place who this is, and clearly, I should know. Sounds like maybe a hair after the hey day of this pocket of the genre. Not Carl Grubbs, but someone similar. I can tell you all the people the pianist isn’t. Getting kind of an Airto vibe from the percussion. You might be surprised on this one. I picked it for the sax solo really, and I do like the feel on this version too. Track 10 - Dear Lord. Took me awhile, but pretty sure it’s Marylin Crispell. Either Cyrille or Paul Motian on drums. I’m going to feel like an idiot, but that bow sure sounds like Reggie Workman. Still not sure I’m sold on this version, but I like that it’s their own. (Are you listening, Kenny Garrett!?!??!) You got all three! Crispell / Motian / Workman. I enjoy this version but it's not the strongest track from this album. The others were much too long though. Track 11 - Gotta be Ray Brown. I need this in my life. Correct! Track 12 - Weird. I like it. Don’t dare guess. This is a tough one. I don't really expect anyone to get it but maybe there's someone who has heard this. Track 13 - I like the composition, but what in the name of hypercompression is with that sound!?!? It's called 1991! Track 14 - I can only assume this is Jack Bruce. Nope! I'm happy to say you're not even close. You're very familiar with this drummer, though they might be hard to identify here. Well done my friend!
