Deep Dark Blue Centre
'60s free jazz, a nicely accessible set mixing improv ideas with the compositional styles of the time. Accessible works that pack a lot of adventure and some fancy soloing by a young Kenny Wheeler and John Surman.|
Disk Two combines straight jazz composing with a Bitches Brew kind of jamatmosphere, aided by electric piano.
1- Sinewy mid/fast horn line; includes a bouncy bop segment and a nice vibes solo.
2- Slow, sweet, gentle. Straightahead track.
3- Dusky, midtempo riff. A great jazz brew w/abstract middle.
4- Brash start into quieter flow. Swaying '60s riff later. Really nice.
5- Slow, with elements of menace. Last half: a fast gallop.
6- Quiet start into nice lumbering jazz segments. Long drum solo.
1- Bright midtempo minor key w/nearly proggy guitar early on. Great straight-jazz mini-epic.
2- Bluesy w/el piano, bright mid/fast
3- Low key psych-jazz bliss to a shuffle beat
4- Tumbling, relaxed mid/fast, lots of bass and electric piano
5- Dreamy midtempo, electric piano w/rich trumpet soloing
6- Shorter version of #3, a nice track
7- Slow and wistful, pretty
8- Bluesy free-guitar intro into midtempo blues/funk.
