Another Qualilty 24bit/192khz CD
from Blue Note /EMI Japan

[One more amazing chapter in the mighty development
of drummer Chico Hamilton a killer 70s session
for Blue Note and a record that goes way
beyond his earlier experiments of the 50s,
modal grooves of the 60s, and funk work for
the Flying Dutchman label! The style here is fusion,
but way fresher than the
usual type neither jamming rock-styled,
nor mellow and smooth and instead always
tickled by Hamilton's sense of a unique rhythm,
and his continued great ear for
inventive use of reeds in this case
handled by Arthur Blythe on alto
and Arnie Lawrence on soprano
and tenor sax. The set's also got Steve Turre on bass
and trombone, and both Barry Finnerty
and Joe Beck on electric guitars
but the real genius
is Chico himself, who handled arrangements
and wrote most of the album's great tracks.
Titles include the exotic number
"Abdullah & Abraham" plus "Andy's Walk",
"Peregrinations", "It's About That Time",
"Sweet Dreams", "On & Off", "Little Lisa",
and "Space For Stacy"
1996-2013, Dusty Groove, Inc.]
