    The Butterfield Blues Band: East-West
    Elektra EKS-7315
    Format: 1LP 180g 33rpm / standard sleeve
    Manufacturer: Speakers Corner
    Original label: Elektra

    “East-West” – Paul Butterfield (hca, voc); Elvin Bishop, Mike Bloomfield (g); Mark Naftalin (org); Jerome Arnold (b); Billy Davenport (dr)

    In 1965, just one year after Paul Butterfield had formed his blues band – named after himself – and launched one of the very best groups among the white Chicago blues community, the band produced this dynamic and visionary album. The group presents a wide range of contrasting numbers, both eastern and western, which reflect the LP’s title – something totally new and innovative. In the first few titles, traditional standard numbers come over rather enigmatically while supporting original and rhythmic compactness, but this soon gives over to a tactically well-formed instrumentation and lengthy solo interludes. The all-embracing motto 'blues' is taken up by the band in Nat Adderley’s “Work Song” at the very latest, with mind-expanding ways of playing and varying sounds. Catapulted by Mike Bloomfield’s artistry on the guitar into the world of rock, all the musicians celebrate these well-known jazz standards and each man contributes his personal skill into forging a perfectly balanced team effort.
    The title number “East-West” ultimately demolishes the world of the blues. In the tonal mixture of confidently prepared rock ingredients and borrowings from Indian music (raga rock), we have an amalgamation of rock, blues, jazz and oriental melodies which result in an emotional, unheard-of sound that is well worth the hearing.

    Manufacturer: Speakers Corner
    Original label: EMI

    Johannes Brahms: Violin Concerto In D Major, op. 77 – David Oistrakh (v); the French National Radio Orchestra conducted by Otto Klemperer

    Brahms’s first and only violin concerto was mocked as being not with but 'against the violin'. This cutting remark was less directed at the tricky passages, which made enormous demands on the technical dexterity from the even the greatest virtuosi, but rather more at the challenge of asserting his small violin against the large orchestra. It was not only the soloist who had to possess star qualities in this symphonic masterwork, but the orchestra too. Let us begin with the conductor Otto Klemperer, who here proves his highly competent command of the tightly knit score. His celebrated analytic comprehension delves deep into the complex score and brings all the details together to create a melodious entity, whereby the French National Orchestra play with total commitment. David Oistrakh answers with a saturated tone and broad gestures on the violin. He lets the expansive melodies of the gigantic first movement emerge with wide sweeps of his bow, fills the slow movement with a wealth of lyrical sentiment, and in the fiery last movement he displays his entire skill as a brilliant virtuoso who amalgamates dancelike exuberance with dramatic presence. A truly referential recording!

    Brother Jack McDuff: Tobacco Road

    “Tobacco Road” – Brother Jack McDuff (org); Lonnie Simmons (bs); Red Holloway (ts); John Watson (tb); Fred Berry, King Kolax (tp); Bobby Christian (vib, perc); Roland Faulkner (g); Loyal J. Gresham (b); Robert Guthrie, Joe Dukes (dr); a.o.

    »Imitation, assimilation, innovation.« With these three words the great Clark Terry summed up the art of leaning musical improvisation. Salvador Dalí, the artist who melted time in his colourful and bizarre works, stated radically that a person who didn’t want to copy others would never manage to accomplish anything at all. Brother Jack McDuff did plenty of copying and refined the good old standards on his “Tobacco Road” and made them blossom anew. Jack taught himself to play the organ and went on to transform the popular melody “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” into what one might call roughened up ball house jazz, were it not for the contrary saxophone, which soars over rasping organ clusters. For Brother Jack such spiritual sounds as in “And The Angels Sing” and his somewhat slanted version of the musing, dreamy “Wade In The Water” were an absolute must. It really rocks in “Can’t Get Satisfied”, a gospel-like and delicately instrumentalised version of the blues evergreen. The organ does not necessarily always have the last word in this colourful mixture, but it is always very present as regards the sound and the distribution of the parts. And just once does McDuff let the instrument sing out on its glassy top register in “The Shadow Of Your Smile”.

    Herbie Mann At The Village Gate

    “Herbie Mann At The Village Gate” – Herbie Mann (fl); Hagood Hardy (vib); Ahmad Abdul-Malik, Ben Tucker (b); Rudy Collins (dr); Chief Bey (dr, perc); Ray Mantilla (cga, perc)

    “Comin’ Home Baby” – that’s how the LP begins and that’s what catapulted it right into the charts. Not to one of the top places, but from this time on Herbie Mann was one of the superstars in Atlantic’s collection of jazz musicians. He was known as ‘our man with the flute’, and the critics in the early Sixties were full of praise for him. He became even more famous, and probably richer, through soundtracks and later on sometimes rather commercialised productions. Well, good for him. ‘The Man’ serves up jazz pure on this recording, made live at the legendary Village Gate club, which is no wonder considering the rhythm group that includes Ahmad Abdul-Malik and Rudy Collins. The composer of “Comin’ Home Baby”, Ben Tucker, also makes an appearance as a guest soloist before the two Gershwin numbers from “Porgy And Bess” offer a wealth of rhythm pure. On the cover text of the LP, Willis Conover, who hosted the Newport Jazz Festival as a sideline (older jazz fans will know his baritone voice from AFN broadcasts), describes in detail the ethnic background of the musicians who come from all over the world – from Romania to Puerto Rico. The three numbers are by no means commonplace. Perhaps a tasty flute cocktail would be a good description. This true rarity from Atlantic’s treasure trove in the early Sixties has long been marked down on the wish list of many fans and at long last it’s available again.

    Lee Konitz With Warne Marsh

    “Lee Konitz With Warne Marsh” – Lee Konitz (as); Warne Marsh (ts); Ronnie Ball, Sal Mosca (p); Billy Bauer (g); Oscar Pettiford (b); Kenny Clarke (dr)

    What a great rhythm group! A dream comes true: Oscar Pettiford and Kenny Clarke – and then Billy Bauer on the guitar and alternately Ronnie Ball (UK) or Sal Mosca (USA) on the piano. No wonder that things really take off when these masters of improvisation from the Lennie Tristano school get going.
    In June 1955, in the Atlantic studio, standards provided the starting base for the long and wonderfully sophisticated improvisations by Lee Konitz and Wayne Marsh, who were at that time pupils of the great Chicago maestro. Although the numbers are declared as own compositions, such as “Background Music” and “Ronnie’s Line”, they are actually none other than adaptations of “All Of Me” or “That Old Feeling” – but at the very highest level. Lee Konitz always called this ‘The Twelfth Step’. The repertoire is enriched by seldom-heard compositions by the great Oscar Pettiford. ‘Time-keeping’ – a neologism of prime importance for jazz musicians – is the most important element in “Donna Lee” and “There Will Never Be Another You” – and there is no better drummer for this music than Kenny ‘Klook’ Clarke, who lived in those days in the USA before moving to Paris in 1956 where there was no racial discrimination.
    Of course, you can buy these recordings on various digital discs. But that can’t be compared to a superb black disc and a cover with lines notes by the famous Barry Ulanov.
    Just one thing more: one of the musicians is still on the road. Lee Konitz is often to be heard and seen somewhere in Europe. Despite his almost 91 years!
