In the cool of the evening, when everything is getting' kinda groovy...
is a spooky little recording. Technically a tenor trio, the Intuit Ensemble sports an even sparer sound than that stripped-down format. Brenden Rush Dance is the reedmeister weaving his way through an odd but interesting collection of fringe standards. Fringe standards because these songs are all well known and associated with free jazz. Sam River's "Beatrice," John Coltrane's "Impressions" and "Mr. P.C." all show up. The band winks at Sonny Rollins with "There Will Never Be Another You" and test drives Be Bop on Tadd Dameron's "Ladybird," all very effectively.
The recording is made with the band set far back in the mix and a good deal of reverb. This sets up a late night ambience, a midnight temperament that is a bit dark and decadent. A definite mood piece, Reliance is recommended for space music fans as well as jazz fans.
Track Listing: Beatrice; Peri's Scope; Impressions; There Will Never Be Another You; Easy Living; Ladybird; Autumn In New York; Mr. P.C.; St. James Infirmary. (Total Time: 73:53).
Learning Jazz gave me a masters degree in music. Jazz is American Classical Music, came
out of a need to be heard, to be understood, a voice when black America did not have one.
This is why the music is more than just an art form, it was created from blood, guts and heart
of those who suffered in this world. Its not to be taken lightly. If you do take it lightly it will
never sound right. Thank you to all the courageous musicians who made the world hear
them, their innovation came out of their experiences of the time that they lived. A treasure to
the world. American Classical Music. Imitate, Assimilate, Innovate a quote by Clark Terry.
