A REISSUES NEW SERIES OF CLASSIC RECORDINGS FROM THE BLACK SAINT LABEL - WITH REMASTERED AUDIO AND NEW DIGISLEEVE PACKAGING, INCLUDING THE ORIGINAL FULL COLOUR BOOKLET!
A richly dynamic set from pianist Don Pullen, and one of his farthest-out sessions from the mid 70s especially considering he had just finished a tenure as Mingus' piano player not long before this set was recorded! The 'outness' of the date is probably due in part to reedman Sam Rivers, who brings a great deal of energy to the set, and wrote half of the numbers the group performs (the other half are from Pullen) and the players work here in a quartet that features bassist Alex Blake and drummer Bobby Battles. The set's got a lot of the freewheeling energy that Rivers was hitting in the 70s and titles include 'Capricorn Rising', 'Fall Out', 'Joycie Girl'. And 'Break Out'. (Dusty Groove)
Don Pullen is a legend. And an avante-garde jazz icon. His 1966 duet recordings with legendary master musician Milford Graves "Nommo" and "Live at Yale" are probably the two most rare and sought after pieces of free jazz vinyl in history. Why they have never been reissued, considering their desirability, is a conundrum of great mystery.
Continuing our celebration of Interplanetary Sam Rivers Month, we visit a release from one of my favorite record labels, Black Saint/Soul Note Records from Italy. I was, until today, unfamiliar with "Capricorn Rising." Another tip from my man, Jonathan Sindleman, has led me to post this album. After first listen, I must say I am honored to share this work of art.. With you. It is organic, stunning, and energetic. A must have for any Sam Rivers and/or Don Pullen fan. Check out the frenetic, soulful "Fall Out.' And of course, pay attention to the wonderful Black Saint production value. Classic, beautiful.
