Generally acclaimed as fusion's greatest drummer, Billy Cobham's explosive technique powered some of the genre's most important early recordings including groundbreaking efforts by Miles Davis and the Mahavishnu Orchestra before he became an accomplished bandleader in his own right.
Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. An overlooked gem from reedman Sam Rivers – and a set that's surprisingly soulful, given that most of his other work from this stretch is much more outside! The album's got a laidback groove on most numbers – with rhythm from Daryll Thompson on guitar, Rael Wesley Grant on bass, and Steve McCraven on drums – often in this midtempo mode that has the electric currents providing a subtle bounce, which opens up as Rivers solos on tenor, soprano sax, and flute! The style's a few steps down from funky fusion, but not that far away, either – and Sam proves to be an expressive soloist in the setting, in ways we really wouldn't have expected. Titles include "Swirl", "Chant", "Coral", "Lazuli", "Ripples", "Dandelions", "Devotion", "Beatrice", and "Sprung".
Matchbook is an album by Cold Chisel member Ian Moss released in 1989. It spent 3 weeks at the top of the Australian Album charts in 1989 and was preceded by the single "Tucker's Daughter" which was also a No. 1 hit. The first four tracks on the album were all released as singles. Matchbook was the first solo album for Moss and featured several songs written for him by Don Walker, also from Cold Chisel.
Out of several live Hendrix albums, The Jimi Hendrix Concerts stands as one of the very best. Taken from shows at Winterland, The Royal Albert Hall, and from various venues in New York, Berkeley, and San Diego, the set includes hits like "Fire," "Voodoo Chile," and "Hey Joe," as well as fine blues like "Red House," "Bleeding Heart," and "Hear My Train a Comin'." Highlights include a definitive version of "Little Wing" and one of the most assured and driving versions of "Voodoo Chile" (these and four other stellar tracks come from what must have been an amazing concert at Winterland in the fall of '68). Another standout is "I Don't Live Today," which features a fine mix of jazz-inspired soloing and various feedback and distortion "tricks" (tricks that figure into Hendrix's way of "playing with the electronics," and which make up one of the more innovative aspects of his guitar playing). Hendrix gets adept and sympathetic support throughout from bassist Noel Redding and drummer Mitch Mitchell (Band of Gypsies' bassist Billy Cox replaces Redding on "Red House" and "Hey Joe").
Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. The togetherness here comes from great interplay between the piano of Don Friedman and guitar of Klaus Flenter – two players who work surprisingly well on the record, and each seem to bring out the best in each other! Freidman's tones on the piano have this extra-chromatic approach, which is really echoed in the guitar at times – often in the album's more dynamic moments, which have a vibe that's quite different than Don's regular trio outings. The rest of the group features Henk Haverhoek on bass and Eric Ineke on drums – and titles include "Vieux Roue", "Minor Ballad", "Autumn In Summer", "Lonely Evening", "Elba", "New Dawn", and "Mohonk Blues".
