Style: Contemporary Jazz. Issued on Cadet in , The Rubaiyat of Dorothy Ashby is really a left-field offering for the jazz harpist. But being a jazz harpist was -- and remains -- an outside thing in the tradition. Her previous offerings on Prestige were pure, hard bop jazz with serious session players soloing all over them. She made recordings for Atlantic and Jazzland before landing at Chess in with Afro-Harping which began her partnership with arranger Richard Evans. Ashby became content as an iconoclast and was seemingly moving forward toward the deep well of spiritual jazz in the aftermath of John Coltrane's death and the recordings of Pharoah Sanders and Alice Coltrane.
On this set for Cadet, she again teams with Evans who wears the hats of producer, arranger, and conductor of a string section and the record goes in a somewhat different direction. Whereas Afro-Harping hit on a direction for Ashby and cemented her relationship with Evans, Rubaiyat realizes that partnership in total.
With a band that included a host of percussion instruments -- Stu Katz played vibes and kalimba, and Fred Katz played a second kalimba, Cash McCall was enlisted as guitarist, Cliff Davis played alto saxophone, and Lenny Druss played flute, oboe, bass flute, and piccolo.
There is also a bass player and a drummer but they are not credited. For her part, Ashby played her harp, but she also brought the Japanese koto into the mix as well as her voice. Rubaiyat is no ordinary jazz vocal album. It is exotic, mysterious, laid-back, and full of gentle grooves and soul. Released: Style: Soul-Jazz, Easy Listening. Originally released in , the record sounds simultaneously vintage and contemporary. The record features some amazing shakuhachi bamboo flute playing by Hozan Yamamoto, which gives the music a haunting, dreamlike atmosphere.
Whilst Kazue and Tadao work their magic on the koto a traditional string instrument. Though certainly not an ambient record, 'Jazz-Rock' has the same meditative, other-worldly quality that invites you to sit back, listen and be transported somewhere else. Unfortunately, until now the 'Jazz Rock' album is a scarcity that commanded a high price-tag only for the most hardened of record collectors.
So it is pleasure to make it accessible to all, and we hope you dig this lost, obscure future-classic as much as we do. Released: 17 Jul It is filled with abstract beats, eclectic samples and blistering noise — not exactly dance music, not quite modern composition, but a fog of post-techno spiritual intensity that leaves one breathless and craving for more. Mastered by Daniele Antezza Dadub Studio.
As an instigator and explorer of the psychedelic potential of sound, he has no interest in developing a singular style. Contemplative prayer and uncompromising music is his path. View the "Neo Punggol" MV at vimeo. Smokescreen by George Chua. Format: Vinyl, LP.
Country: Singapore. Released: 16 Sep Genre: Electronic. Style: Abstract, Experimental, Noise. The poignant songs on Love Letters document a time of profound flux for Anoushka — health issues, heartbreak, domestic upheaval — and show a new, vulnerable and raw side of her as a songwriter and musician.
During the toughest parts of that period, Shankar found the practical and emotional support that her friends, fellow artists and performers offered became, quite naturally, artistic in nature. A rotating cast of vocalists, musicians and producers would turn up for emotional support and talks that evolved into song-writing sessions.
Released: 07 Feb He had been one of the premier pianists in jazz for several decades, as his many colleagues knew so well. But Bishop was often overlooked by the jazz public and press in his lifetime, and, in the years since his demise, his music continues to be neglected.
