Soul Jazz Sorcery 26 Aug. 2014
By Green Manalishi - Published on
Format: Audio CD
How can it be I'm the first to review this magnificent album on Amazon??? This CD is awesome. It's creative, soulful, got a funk-edged blues jazz and is from 1974 (need I say more?). John Abercrombie and Mick Goodrick on guitars, Dave Holland on bass. DeJohnette's got a lot going on here. His horn work in Sorcery #1 (13:51) is fantastic, but while I enjoy all the solos here, what really impresses me is the rhythms and progressions they vamp over. They're very smooth, near progressive rock pieces. Track 4, The Reverend King Suite is a 6-part suite (though at only 14:19) with such colorful titles as A) Reverend King B) Obstructions C) The Fatal Shot D) Mourning E) Unrest F) New Spirits On The Horizon. If I didn't know any better I'd say these looked more like tracks off a Wishbone Ash album. 1974 is vintage stuff whether rock or jazz and this album is no exception. I think people who enjoy long jam 70s concept rock would like this as well fans of cross-over jazz such Miles' Bitches Brew. Not that the jams here are long (the whole album is only 41 minutes) - it's just that tunes are internally diverse, often hanging or alternating somewhere between a soul-jazz and loose rock feel. With only the occasional foray into cacaphony. If this album could just get 24-bit remastered, well, that would just be the cherry.

Pre Gateway Demo Sessions. 16 Sept. 2014
By Bruce Jenkins - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is an amateurish recording made in dejohnette's home studio. The sound is thin and dull. The material is not fully realized or fleshed out. Shortly thereafter Manfred Eicher got the core of this grouping to record two albums (now four) on ECM. Those sessions are clear and articulate, and expand on some of the material attempted here as well as move on to new ideas. Much of what we know now about these musicians gelled with the Gateway concept. And I suppose one could argue Sorcery was where that music was conceived. However, it comes off as a practice session not really intended for release.
