Orfeu Negro, Intro
Part 2 of a classic 1966 live session. '60s free jazz, bright energy with composed segments. Hot two-horn improvising with splashes of cool vibraphone. Meant to emphasize freedom, with long group improvising, always in a jazzy mode, and unison lines that aren't necessarily played in lock step. (Just like when Cherry played with Ornette Coleman.) Sound fidelity is pretty good for a 1966 recording. Play any track (well, maybe not #1, which is in Danish).|
Don Cherry (trumpet)
Gato Barbieri (tenor sax)
Karl Berger (vibes)
Bo Stief (bass)
Aldo Romano (drums)
2- Shifts pretty quickly into a heated exchange, then cools down for expanded soloing and some unison themes. SPOKEN OUTRO.
3- Sad horns in Ayler-like band style. Spins off into free playing soon enough, and even quiets down for a catchy jazz shuffle in the last two minutes.
4- Easygoing. Jumpy intro riff, then some catchy phrases played in loose near-unison.
5- More spacious: Calmly fast, open feel. Busy nonetheless, with *blazing* sax by the end.
6- Nicely jumbly short piece. Stops prematurely, to launch:
7- Cherry's album-side-long suite, with brisk written themes and exciting fast playing. A neatly tough swing makes for an ear-catching intro movement, then you're off for the ride. 22 minutes; for a nice excerpt, fade out around -14:00, after Cherry's awesome trumpet solo.
