:::Another Earth:::

Posted: Wednesday, 29 February 2012 by jazzlover in Etykiety: , , , , ,

This out-of-print LP (one of several from the Prestige and Milestone catalog that are long overdue to be reissued on CD) was one of the finest of altoist Gary Bartz's early years. The 24-minute multi-movement "Another Earth" is a stormy affair matching Bartz with trumpeter Charles Tolliver, the fiery tenor Pharoah Sanders, pianist Stanley Cowell, bassist Reggie Workman and drummer Freddy Waits. The flip side of the record has three quartet outings by Bartz, Cowell, Workman and Waits, including the mysterious ballad "Dark Nebula" and an uptempo blues, "UFO," plus a Bartz-Workman duet on "Lost in the Stars." Well worth searching for, this adventurous music is quite colorful and always holds one's interest.

    Yes, this title is overdue for reissue. The fact that it hasn't been is a mystery, unless the masters have somehow been destroyed or something. I just saw Bartz last month (my first time hearing him lead his own band) and he was in excellent form. Thanks for the share, Jazzlover.

    Shame on me! I've heard of Gary Bartz's solo albums. I only knew him for his sideman appearences...
    Thank you for this share. I guess this record is very interesting. I'm fond of all the pieces, but I have a special interest for "Dark Nebula". And that's always a pleasure to listen to Pharoah Sanders.
