Drop the needle anywhere on this limited-edition, Record Store Day Black Friday vinyl from Zev Feldman and saxophonist Cory Weeds Reel to Real label (the digital equivalent drops in December) and it's a time machine back to a purer time when all you needed was an old stage and five guys blowing to make any city night bright with magic. Coleman cuts and runs loose like a fevered wizard on a hot bed spin through "I Got Rhythm" with Moore and Dailey in mad pursuit. A joyful, unabashed swing is "Body and Soul" thanks to the unswerving though malleable muscle of White and Ridley. Coleman's deep blue tone and heated, real time acrobatics spark and ignite a set of constant bop shenanigans throughout "Afternoon In Paris," "Sandu" and the reckless happiness of "Joy Spring." Put this one on and revel in a time before all this.
Side One: Afternoon In Paris; Sandu.
Side Two: I Got Rhythm; Body And Soul; Joy Spring.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
