Ran Blake: the New Englandest New Englander

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

Ran Blake is one mysterioso pianist. His playing smacks of deep, complicated feelings, like melancholy, or nostalgia, where painful longing and sweet remembrance mix.

Tenor-saxophonist Ricky Ford is in his usual swinging form on this live quartet date with pianist Jaki Byard, bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Ben Riley. Although Byard and Hinton are both adept at earlier styles of music, Ford mostly sticks to hard bop, with slight departures in a swinging version of “Ebony Rhapsody” and “Broadway.” Ford contributed five originals for the set including “Independence Blues” and “Red, Crack And Blue.” This date is easily recommended to fans of the distinctive tenor and those who enjoy modern hard bop. – Scott Yanow
