TERRI LYNE CARRINGTON: Money Jungle – Provocative in Blue
Concord, 2013

MODERN JAZZ – Unusual re-interpretation of a classic 1963 Duke Ellington album. The original Money Jungle was an all-star trio effort notable for a weird, uneasy tension. Carrington, a drummer, also uses a trio with Gerald Clayton on piano and Christian McBride on bass, but she mixes in more soul, a variety of guest musicians, and a few audio clips from economic or political speeches on track 1.

Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9

1. 6:21 – drum/spoken-word intro, dives into hard trio swing, strong bass solo
2. 5:57 – soulful ballad with cool scatting & trumpet by Clark Terry, soft winds
3. 6:01 – country-blues intro, slinky r&b groove with wordless Lizz Wright vocal
4. 4:11 – straight trio swing, very true to the original concept, strong solos
5. 6:17 – playful, a Stevie Wonder-ish feel, rolling solos, spaced-out ending
6. 4:39 – odd staccato walking rhythm, more flowing in the middle
7. 5:37 – trio creeps very carefully at first, switches to an optimistic glide
8. 5:02 – jaunty tune with busy rhythm & latin percussion; piano explores
9. 6:28 – slow blues drag, played straight, but horns enter to pull it gently apart
10. 5:09 – sweet, dusky ballad: romantic piano way out in front
11. 6:44 – atmospheric, fragile r&b; Shea Rose/Herbie Hancock spoken-word
