PAUL SMOKER- GENUINE FABLES 1988


"What Paul Smoker produced on his horn was unheard of in these latitudes; his complete command of his instrument allowed him to play whatever extravaganza he would think of, harmonically as well as in terms of dynamics. Styles, modes and techniques of every era of the history of music -- Baroque and Bebop, Structuralism and Storyville, Blues and Berio...To the widely discussed question about the future development of the jazz trumpet, Paul Smoker's musical concept could definitely constitute a far-reaching answer." -- Jazz Podium

cheers sotise, a cracking player, i'm always a bit surprised how few people are aware of him - great trio date this :)

i have got standard deviations (cimp) but i have to say i prefer the sound of this one

smokes indeed!

thanks boromir for reminding me of zebulon's site--hoovered up some things awwhile back and unforgivably missed this due to being unfamiliar with the leader (and only vaguely with Smoker and Tchicai)
