This is no longer a work in progress, according to what Camille wrote me May 22nd. It is a soundtrack of sorts, based on an old TV show, at least such is its genesis. I have been fortunate to be privy to 3 prior incarnations of this, each both better (IMO anyway) and a bit lengthier than the prior versions. This is very nicely done, and the June 1st release date is now firm. I understand a new Ghost Rhythms release is in the works. ~ sumbuk

This quintet’s members are frequent collaborators in various projects, here presenting a set of Davis’ compositions. In fact, this group of musicians have collaborated in kaleidoscopic ways. For instance: Davis, Miller and Kirchner had a long history with their band Zing!. Clearfield is a mainstay in Ulery’s various projects, including Loom and Ulery’s large-ensemble projects, some of which Davis and Miller have recorded and/or performed with. Clearfield leads a trio that features Kirchner as a member, and minus Davis the remaining quartet appears as Funky Miracle.

First contact between the musicians of Inwardness is established at a concert in Morocco. A year later, they meet again, this time in the South of France. Months are spent in isolation, in search of new forms of interaction. The trio experiment with different playing modes: playing blindfolded, in the midst of nature or during rush hour in the city centre. The result is a free floating sound, a silence pierced by subtle noises and whispering frequencies. Davy Sur is one of the few drummers capable of navigating the open spaces of this music. For Inwardness, he has managed to extract an intriguingly delicate sound from his instruments.

From the crackling bass lines on the opener, "King Weasel Stomp", to the lovely head bobbing bounce of "Brown Boy", Matrix sounds fresh and inspiring even though "Wizard" was originally released in the late 70's. Matrix was one of the few groups to create a successful marriage between big band Jazz and boundary pushing Jazz fusion. Their horns were tight and vibrant while the melodies, rhythms and grooves bobbed and weaved like a agile boxer in a championship title fight. I did not have this disc in my original collection when it came out on vinyl in 1978, but after acquiring "Tale of the Whale" on CD earlier this year, I decided to give this one a shot.

It has been a long, fascinating odyssey for Jean-Luc Ponty, who started out as a straight jazz violinist only to become a pioneer of the electric violin in jazz-rock in the '70s and an inspired manipulator of sequencers and synthesizers in the '80s. At first merely amplifying his violin in order to be heard, he switched over to electric violin and augmented it with devices that were associated with electric guitarists and keyboardists, like Echoplex machines, distortion boxes, phase shifters, and wah-wah pedals. Classically trained, with an unquenchable ability to swing when he wants to, and consumed by a passion for tight structures and repeating ostinatos, Ponty has been able to handle styles as diverse as swing, bop, free and modal jazz, jazz-rock, world music, and even country, mixing them up at will. Starting in 1977, he also pioneered the use of a five-string electric violin with a low C string. Undoubtedly, he rivals Stéphane Grappelli for the title of the most prominent and influential European jazz violinist.

By the time guitarist John Tropea had recorded his solo debut on the tiny Marlin imprint in 1975, he had been a session guitarist for nearly a decade. His understated, decidedly non-show-off playing graced records by everyone from Laura Nyro to Deodato (including Prelude and Deodato 2), from Ashford & Simpson to Bo Diddley, from Billy Cobham to Peter Allen, from Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway to Paul Simon, Van Morrison, Luiz Bonfá, and Ray Bryant. After this he played with everyone from Alice Cooper to Lalo Schifrin and Kurtis Blow and way, way beyond. Tropea's cast of studio players is a who's who of the '70s, '80s, and '90s…

John Tropea is at his best here, with great melodies like Skip Scarborough's "Can't Hide Love," Don Grolnick's "You Can't Have It All," and Tropea's own "Blue Too" and "Short Trip to Space," a fascinating and complex tune that actually sounds like its title. The production is excellent, with a double-drum setup featuring Steve Gadd and Rick Marotta on most of the tunes that adds a lot of depth to the sound.

Over 40 years ago, young Al Di Meola released his second, extremely successful studio album “Elegant Gypsy”. With "Elegant Gypsy & More LIVE", recorded last year during his acclaimed US tour of the same name, he is revisiting some of his brilliant, earlier works such as “Race With Devil On Spanish Highway”, “Flight Over Rio”, “Midnight Tango” or “Egyptian Danza”.

Having long since established his funk credentials, Herbie Hancock continues the direction of Head Hunters and its U.S. successors here, welding himself to the groove on electric keyboards while Bennie Maupin again shines sardonic beams of light on a variety of reeds. In "Doin' It," the most successful track, Hancock makes a more overt bid for the dancefloor, for the tune is basically one long irresistible groove with a very commercial-sounding bridge.

Reissue with the latest DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. This is a unique experiment in the Hancock discography, recorded in Tokyo in just one day during a tour of Japan. The first side contains two introspective, complex solo acoustic piano tracks, "Maiden Voyage" and "Dolphin Dance," which are notable since they date from a period when Hancock was supposedly totally immersed in electronics. Side two has two even more unusual pieces – "Nobu," a one-man show recorded in real time with the sample-and-hold feature of an ARP 2600 synthesizer providing a rhythm section for Hancock's electric keyboards, followed by "Cantaloupe Island" with a pre-recorded synth bassline.

March, 1973… A quartet known for its psychedelic inclinations delivered a fortress of an album: The Dark Side of The Moon was a musical UFO featuring the most advanced technology of the period, a stratospheric record which mirrored society and our errant human ways. Pink Floyd was about to write an essential chapter in rock history and enjoy planetary fame; even today, their album is still one of the greatest sellers of all time.
