A little request fulfillment,2 monster live sets by one of the great bands of its day,
These are among my favorite jazz records period!!!
. To my knowledge, both were also issued in Japan by Paddle Wheel , and once on CD combined in the early 90's..
The Band has a very distinct unique sound, with Bob Stewart and Abdul Wadud given plenty of space , all the instruments more or less have an equal weight.
in the ensemble passages, there's a lot here that is delightfully reminiscent of earlier free wheeling New Orleans , collective playing....
Beautiful Stuff .
and btw,Blythe hasn't been well the last couple of years, and you can help him by buying some of his available cds from reputable sources, such as the labels Cadence..Enja or in an out .
