Elvin Jones: Revival: Live at Pookie's Pub

Read "Revival: Live at Pookie's Pub" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Non c'è solo la musica --tumultuosa e avvincente-- a porre in primo piano questo doppio CD (o triplo LP) del quintetto di Elvin Jones, ripreso in un piccolo club di Manhattan dal 28 al 30 luglio 1967. L'edizione fortemente voluta da Zev Feldman (dopo 11 anni di tentativi presso varie etichette) illustra il punto di svolta del batterista da illustre sideman a leader e illumina la singolare condizione del jazz a New York nella seconda metà dei ...

Elvin Jones: Revival: Live At Pookie’s Pub

Read "Revival: Live At Pookie’s Pub" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

No matter your format of choice—the deluxe 180g 3-LP set, streaming, or a 2-CD package--there is some serious, late '60s hard bop soul-searching happening on this eye-opening, mind-expanding, previously unreleased Revival: Live at Pookie's Pub. Elvin Jones cleared the cobwebs just two weeks after John Coltrane's passing and the resounding end to the classic quartet of Coltrane, Jones, McCoy Tyner and Jimmy Garrison. The writing had been on the wall that Coltrane was more than ready and eager ...

Elvin Jones: Revival: Live At Pookie’s Pub

Read "Revival: Live At Pookie’s Pub" reviewed by Chris May

A welcome addition to Elvin Jones' catalogue, the previously unissued 2 x CD / 4 x LP Revival: Live At Pookie's Pub was recorded in New York in July 1967. The gig was just two weeks after the passing of John Coltrane, with whom Jones had played from 1960 to 1966. Jones' quartet includes the gritty but underrated tenor saxophonist Joe Farrell, who had the unenviable job of standing in Coltrane's shadow. But he rises to the occasion magnificently. Jones ...

Read "In Paris: The ORTF Recordings" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini

Ogni tanto gli archivi sparsi nel nostro pianeta si aprono per regalare belle e rare emozioni agli attenti cittadini del mondo della musica. Non è cosa così semplice come potrebbe apparire superficialmente: per trovare questi tesori nascosti serve anche l'energia di un gruppo di persone che si appassiona e si mette a caccia delle cose nascoste nelle pieghe del tempo e della storia. In questo caso l'archivio è quello della radio e televisione francese (ORTF) e il manipolo di appassionati ...

Larry Young: In Paris: The ORTF Recordings

Read "In Paris: The ORTF Recordings" reviewed by Mark Corroto

You may know organist Larry Young from his work in The Tony Williams Lifetime band (with John McLaughlin) and later with Jimi Hendrix, and Carlos Santana or you may just be hip to his Blue Note 1960's years. Nonetheless, you would certainly be surprised to learn that he lived to be just 38 years old, passing away in 1978. As the philosopher Lao Tzu said, “The flame that burns twice as bright, burns half as long" Born Larry ...
