A sound and musical treasure


It is a cliche to say so but that will not deter me - ISLAND SEVEN which opens the program of music on this fine CD is enough for me for the price of the album. Mr Ditmas sets up a sonic almost thunderous but intensely music backdrop to a stunning set of solos from the musicians involved. Musicians? Artists, legends, greats might be a better description, but more of these later. This opening track reminds one of Africa and its musical history but the music morphs into a more reflective conclusion through the guitar work of John Abercombie. The piano solo is a stunner. The title track also begings with the drums of leader and composer of all seven pieces. The music is on the free side of the music allowing considerable space for improvising and does feature Mr Abercombie on a joint composition PULP letting loose with a solo of remarkable power. DONT WAKE ME features the sythesizer work of Mr Bley. Mr Rivers is still playing as if he were thirty years of age on POWER SURGE. The BIG EASY suite is the compositional highlight with an extensive solo by Mr Rivers on soprano sax, more glorious drumming by Mr Ditmas, and a brilliant quirky stomping swinging THURDAY NITE SPECIAL.
Norman Granz was famous for getting musicians together who may not have otherwise had the opportunity, and this has been a feature of Metronome Magazine, etc, in the old days during award time. Mr Alfred Lion did the same at Blue Note. In the present case Mr Ditmas and Mr Simon invited some musicians he has greatly admired over the years for his recording date and what legends they are. The musical history that these three - Bley, Rivers, Abercrombie - embrace and have been part of has really been the major evolution of improvised music in the past fifty years. This is a beautiful album, invigorating, powerful, and swinging. Thank goodness for POSTCARDS.

I'm a rockabilly gal, and this just doesn't click with me


I love Brian Setzer's music from The Stray cats up to his recent Christmas cd, but this is the only cd he's ever done that I can't can't stand, no matter how much I want to like it, it just makes no sense musically or in any way what so ever. Why would Brian add hip hop and techno and rap to what could have been a timeless rockabilly swing cd, go figiure, skip this one, and get his Christmas cd, or the Dirty boogie... I find that a record is really bad, when I can't even take a sip of my martini, and not be able to enjoy it's refreshingly cool taste... This is not one you'll be hearing at one of my famous west Covina coocktail parties anytime soon...

blessings in the midst of tears


As I listen to this CD, I am reminded that even as the Holy Father leaves us we will be taken care of. The hope and strength in his voice, carried along by the beautiful music gives me strength in the face of losing this Shepard. I am comforted by listening to his voice, and knowing that he will only be watching over us in heaven. He sends us strength in his words.
