Burning Spear - Live at Montreux Jazz Festival 2001

Personnel: Burning Spear (vocals, congas, percussion); Galbert Spence, Cecil Ordonez (guitar); Clyde Cummings (saxophone); James Smith (trumpet); Micah Robinson (trombone); Stephan Stewart (keyboards); Dave Richard (bass guitar); Michael Ramsey (drums).

Recording information: Montreux Jazz Festival, Montreux, Switzerland (2001).
This recording captures reggae legend Winston Rodney (AKA Burning Spear) in one of his renowned live performances. Though Rodney's latter-day studio work hasn't quite matched landmark recordings such as 1975's MARCUS GARVEY, he has remained a committed and tireless showman over the years, spreading his message of social justice and equality via the deep grooves of roots music. His appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2001 shows him still going strong. Rodney is a valuable teacher in that his lyrics often read as history lessons on topics such as discrimination ("Jah Nuh Dead"), black leaders ("Old Marcus"), and ignominious legacies ("Slavery Days"). But Rodney's personal message is one of liberation and unity, and the buoyant, hypnotic, infectious music created by his stellar backing band upholds this ideal. (The horn section here, which switches between punchy melodic riffs and jazzy soloing, is particularly notable.) This is a strong concert outing and a rousing testament to Burning Spear's live presence.

Closeness Duets .::. Charlie Haden (1993)

Jazz | MP3 320 kbps | Playtime 39:05 | RAR 92 Mb
Haden is a very lyrical player and this recording has more appeal than many would expect. The programmers were right to start the disk with the duet with Keith Jarrett: the piano-bass combination is the least unusual, Jarrett has a lot of commercial appeal, and the duet itself is based on the kind of contemplative theme well-suited to Jarrett's style. The next duet is a bluesy romp with Ornette Coleman. Back to the quieter more lyrical mode in the third duet with Alice Coltrane on "For Turiya." Some may be familiar with this piece which also is performed on the Haden-Garbarek-Gismonti "Folksongs" album. The final duet with drummer Paul Motian uses revolutionary song recordings and harkens back to the avowedly political music of the Liberation Music Orchestra. All and all a very appealing disk.

Various Artists - Fusion for Miles - A Guitar Tribute (2005)

Trumpeter Miles Davis shifted gears so many times during his forty-year career that doing a proper tribute which covers the entire time frame represents a distinct challenge. Perhaps that’s why many artists have focused on specific periods in their Miles tributes. Producer Gary Guthrie put a new spin on Kind of Blue with A New Kind of Blue, while trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith and guitarist Henry Kaiser’s Yo Miles! project has released three sets inspired by Miles’ ‘70s electric period. Even trumpeter Wallace Roney, while not recording a tribute album per se, has taken one of Miles’ mid-‘60s albums, Nefertiti, and used it, along with other sources, as the foundation for his own work.

In the past year, guitarist Jeff Richman has released tributes to saxophonist John Coltrane (A Guitar Supreme) and guitarist John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra (Visions of an Inner Mounting Apocalypse). He's probably the first to try and put the departed trumpeter’s greater career arc into perspective. The problem is that there’s little to tie together Miles’ various periods. One reason for this is that whenever he moved into a new musical space, he often alienated much of his existing fan base. Fans of Kind of Blue are not inherently going to be disposed towards Bitches Brew, and many who discovered Miles with the pop-funk of his last decade may find his more abstract mid-‘60s quintet completely unfathomable.

Consequently Fusion for Miles starts with an immediate handicap. The bad news is that Richman’s arrangements—featuring a core band of keyboardist Larry Goldings, bassist Alphonso Johnson, and drummer Vinnie Colaiuta—don’t go very far in finding the elusive common link. In fact, Richman often takes tunes that were the barest of sketches—for example, Miles’ funk vamp of “Jean-Pierre” and the equally harmonically static jungle funk of his early-‘70s “Black Satin”—and writes new passages to give them greater interest. While these radically altered and stricter arrangements give the guest guitarists more to work with, by its very virtuosity Fusion for Miles loses sight of one of Miles’ core musical goals: creating specific vibes and particular feelings.

The good news is that Fusion for Miles is one heck of a great fusion record when taken on its own merits. It features a varied bunch of guitarists who range from the post bop sensibility of Pat Martino and Bill Connors, to more clear fusion from Jimmy Herring and Mike Stern, and the rock-centric approach of Warren Haynes and Steve Kimmock. Covering material from the late ‘50s (“So What”) through the mid-‘80s (“Splatch”), every guitarist digs into the solid foundation laid by the rhythm section. Unlike Richman’s Mahavishnu Orchestra tribute, none of the core band members actually played with Miles, but the inclusion of one early-'70s Miles veteran, saxophonist Dave Liebman, on some tracks provides linkage. And while the individual tunes come from a multitude of spaces, Richman’s arrangements bring them together for an album that is sure to please fans of pedal-to-the-floor fusion to no end.
