Art Farmer could play modal jazz ! 21 Aug. 2004
By freddiefreejazz - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Please, don't miss this one! It was recorded in 1965 and you can feel all the atmosphere of this period... Remember Trane had been recording A Love Supreme, Transition, Sun Ship and Miles had been recording E.S.P. and was about to record with his great superlative second quintet what is considered to be the holy graal of jazz (The Complete Live at the Plugged Nickel 1965). Why do I say this ? Because in the Art Farmer present album you can feel all the complexity, force, strength, tension, modal jazz with its hits, those hits you would run into while listening to Trane or The Sorcerer. I personnally range "Sing me softly of the Blues" (most of the compositions were written by Carla Bley) next to A Love Supreme, Nefertiti, Transition, Sun Ship... It's modal music, it's great music. Mark my words! Art Farmer plays the flugelhorn, Steve Kuhn is at the piano, Steve Swallow on double bass and Pete La Roca at the drums (the drummer who inspired Tony Williams among others signed a dramatic and terrible track, the wonderful "Tears", track 4). Which means that Art is surrounded by one of the greatest trio of this period (alas, overshadowed by Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson or Wynton Kelly)... Sing Me Softly of the Blues is an unknown masterpiece, really. Too much underated.

While those were almost like a form of chamber jazz - lyrical 25 Nov. 2014
By Dave - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A slight departure from Farmer's other Atlantic albums (that featured guitarist Jim Hall). While those were almost like a form of chamber jazz - lyrical, tasteful (but swinging, and highly recommended - "Interaction" is 5 star material, not to be missed) - this is far more energetic and reflective of some of the trends of the era it was recorded, when John Coltrane's quartet exerted a high influence. Pianist Steve Kuhn really asserts himself. But Farmer is still Farmer, and plays in his familiar style, and despite the rhythm section showing some of the influences of the day, this is hardly some avant garde blow-out. Well worthwhile.
