4.0 out of 5 stars GIVE THIS SOME TIME 27 Jun 2009
By Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
About the only things Larry Young and Jimmy Smith had in common was that they played the organ, and were on Blue Note.

I say this becuase, when thinking of jazz organ, most people tend to think of the happy-go-lucky blues of Smith, the brash funk of Root Down not withstanding. Not liking Smith's southern fried hospitality is like not liking a baby's smile.

Young's work is a different animal; it is cerebral. On Of Love And Peace, this is certianly exemplafied. The first time you hear it, you are really not quite sure what you are listening to.

The numbers here work in modes, and only have one or two changes, and those changes are not dramatic--if anything, they are downplayed. This music is also not exactly free jazz, though there are layers of free playing, where the band solos on top of one another, bouncing in the spacious musical shells Young constructs. Again, the playing is good, but understated.

Which may be Young's point. Nothing dramatic happens on his records, especially this one, but his albums require you to listen over and over, looking for new sounds in the various layers. The more you listen, the more shows itself, slowly. There is a lot of subtance here, and great, great playing, but it takes time to embed itself in your mind. Do the work, however, and you probably will be unable to get this material out of your head, and want to hear it more and more. This was my experiance.

Buy this, but BE PATIANT.
3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 24 Mar 2010
By G B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the kind of album that probably generates the stereotype of free jazz as under-rehearsed, disorganized chaos. It's a shame, because you can clearly hear that Larry Young had something interesting to say in the free jazz idiom - but apparently these musicians were not the ones to do it. There's little of the overarching genius you hear on Coltrane, Cherry, Taylor or Sun Ra recordings from the same period. The horn soloists are generally not interesting and the two-drummer combination is diffuse rather than powerful.

Despite my harsh criticism above, there's still some great music here - particularly when Larry is soloing. Larry Young fans probably want to hear this, but those expecting something on the level of Unity or Mother Ship will be disappointed.

For any fan of Larry Young or an admirer of authentic Jazz music in general, this CD is a must listen to. High quality both in production and performances, this CD is most enjoyable and one I'm proud to include in my permanent lifelong collection of great and deserving musicians and artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific album 9 Nov 2004
By James D. Hasitngs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It is more out than Unity, but is still a necessary part of the Larry Young repertoire, in my mind. It shows him moving from his earlier blue note phase towards his spacier 70s material.
