Fusion from 1974. Composed by Alphonse Mouzon. Mouzon on drums, vocal, etc. Tommy Bolin on guitar.
Terrific jazz. In common with many folks (I’m sure), Herbie Mann taught me to appreciate jazz flute and certain kinds of jazz in general. Always loved his music.
You know I’m a fan of young Tina’s covers. This is an interesting look at the trajectory of a relentlessly developing player. Among other sterling qualities (including a deep musical sense that more people are recognizing with more exposure to Tina), she has great and impressive fortitude. As I said a long time ago, Tina S is no weak flower!
Guitar for the day. Lennon gets the Frisell treatment. Such a modest guy.
You might have surmised by now that I love the harpsichord. In fact, I can’t think of a better way to start out my day.
This partita is by Christoph Graupner. He was a contemporary of Bach; and, like Bach, he was a very prolific composer. For a number of reasons his music was neglected, but it wasn’t because of the quality. It is of a consistently high level and in the midst of a revival, it appears.
Some wonderful musicians came out of P-Funk, Eddie Hazel (1950-1992) among them.
Alvin Youngblood Hart
Alexander Tcherepnin (1899-1977). Exciting original stuff (to me).
