Melle, Gil

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Melle, Gil - Mindscape Mindscape
Electronic Used - LP 92168 Blue Note
1989 Vinyl Rarity. Appears Unplayed. In His Return To Blue Note After An Absence Of Over Three Decades, Melle Made No Bones About The Fact That He Had Left Jazz Far Behind. This Is An LP Of Abstract And Impressionistic Electronic Compositions, Sometimes With An Electronic Pulse, But Mostly In Idioms Related To Film, Contemporary Classical And Even Japanese Music. The Percolating "Message From Mozambique" -- The Most Memorable Music On The Album, Regardless Of Idiom -- Is The Closest That Gil Comes To Something Resembling A Jazz Feeling. The Musical Textures And The Graphic Art In The Booklet (Also Designed By Melle) Display A Cool, Glistening, Technological Sheen -- Even "The Blue Lion," A Subdued Reaction To The Death Of Melle's Mentor, Alfred Lion. Those Who Know Melle Only Through His Jazz Sides From The '50s Are Hereby Warned; The Man Has Definitely Changed. ~ Richard S. Ginell, All Music Guide.... more details

Melle, Gil - Patterns In Jazz Patterns In Jazz
Jazz Audiophile - LP BLP 1517 Music Matters / Blue Note
Factory Sealed, Long Out Of Print, Limited Edition 45rpm 2LP 180gm HQ In Deluxe Gatefold Jacket. “Like The Modern Art That Stormed The Art World In The '50s, Patterns In Jazz, Gil Melle's Debut Album For Blue Note, Is Filled With Bright, Bold Colors And Identifiable Patterns That Camouflage How Adventurous The Work Actually Is. On The Surface, The Music Is Cool And Laid-Back, But Close Listening Reveals The Invention In Melle's Compositions And Arrangements Of The Standards "Moonlight In Vermont" And "Long Ago And Far Away." Part Of The Charm Of Patterns In Jazz Is The Unusual Instrumental Balance Of Melle's Bari Sax, Eddie Bert's Trombone, Joe Cinderella's Guitar, And Oscar Pettiford's Bass. These Low, Throaty Instruments Sound Surprisingly Light And Swinging. Compared To The Two Standards, Melle's Original Compositions Are A Little Short On Melody, But They Give The Musicians Room To Improvise, Resulting In Some Dynamic Music. Ultimately, Patterns In Jazz Is Cerebral Music That Swings — It's Entertaining, But Stimulating.” - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide... more details
