A lovely performance

Webdiva

I came to hear Don Ellis after listening to Duke, Miles and Gil Evans, Monk, Brubeck, Woody Herman, and a whole lot of Getz. Monk and Brubeck prepared me for Ellis's tempo changes in his big band material; but who knew that Getz and Miles would predispose me to Ellis's ballads? It just took a while for me to hear those. The young Don Ellis had a way with ballads. Many would have been perfectly happy if he'd stuck with them, given that Miles Davis had abandoned them by then. That Ellis moved beyond ballads is to his credit -- but a lot of people who heard his inventive big band numbers in the '70s wouldn't necessarily have guessed that he had this kind of sweetness and subtlety to his slow tunes. For that reason, we're lucky to have this recording date available. The two takes of I Love You alone are worth the price, but the rest of the album is just as good. More's the pity that it didn't come out sooner, while Ellis could still garner the deserved credit.

Wonderful trio session

rene.leemans

This record is much more conventional and standards-based as other records of Don Ellis, but Ellis playes lines and melodic inversions of considerable inventiveness, always striking out for microtonal terrain. Paul Bley (piano) plays superbly, Steve Swallow (doublebass) a little bit back in the mix, but has his contribution very well!

Professor Jaki Byard’s Pre-Postmodern Piano

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

When Jaki Byard was with Charles Mingus in the 1960s, audiences would laugh when, mid-solo, Byard would burst into 1920s-style stride piano — the revved-up ragtime offshoot where the left hand bounds back and forth over the lower half of the keyboard. Its archaic quality struck listeners as comic — in that avant-garde age, stride was for antiquarians. Nowadays every hip outside or inside pianist will drop a little stride science once in awhile — like… more »

They Say All Music Guide

This formerly unknown date was released for the first time on this 1988 CD; chances are that the short-lived Candid label died before the music could be put out. Don Ellis, one of the most original trumpeters to emerge in the early 1960′s, performs ten standards on a trio session with pianist Paul Bley and bassist Steve Swallow (who was making his recording debut) but the music is far from routine or predictable. Ellis takes an unaccompanied trumpet solo on “Just One Of Those Things,” “All The Things You Are” is a trumpet-bass duet and Ellis interacts with Bley on a moody “My Funny Valentine.” The players constantly take chances with time but there are few slipups or hesitant moments. A fascinating and long-lost session. – Scott Yanow
