Canned Funk
Used - LP - 6053
1974 US Original Housed In A Heavy-Duty Laminated Gatefold With CTI Company Inner. Recorded By Rudy Van Gelder. Light Spots Of Lamination Bubble And A Scrape To Bottom On Spine Edge. "Joe Farrell's Final Of Six CTI Dates Has Fairly Lengthy Versions Of Four Of His Originals. Farrell, Who Adds Baritone To His Usual Trio Of Instruments (Tenor, Soprano And Flute), Once Again Welcomes Guitarist Joe Beck As His Co-Star, Along With Bassist Herb Bushler, Drummer Jim Madison And Percussionist Ray Mantilla. The Music Is Melodic, Sometimes Funky, And Enjoyable If Not Essential, But All Of Joe Farrell's CTI Sets Are Worth Acquiring." AMG - Scott Yanow. more

Moon Germs
Used - LP - CTI 6023
1973 Original Housed In A Heavy-Duty Laminated Gatefold Cover. Cut By Rudy Van Gelder. “Recorded In 1972 And Released In 1973 With Herbie Hancock, Stanley Clarke, And Jack DeJohnette, Joe Farrell's Moon Germs Was A Foray Into The Electric Side Of Jazz. More Progressive Than Groove-Oriented, Three Of The Four Compositions Were Written By Chick Corea And Certainly Reflect That Knotty, Angular, Almost Mathematic Penchant Of His For Soaring Arpeggios In The Solos And Contrapuntal Basslines That Circle DeJohnette's Drumming. Nowhere Is This Truer Than On The Opener, "Great George," Where Farrell Leads Off With The Hint Of A Melody Before Careening Into Legato Streams Of Thought Along Striated Intervallic Paths. On The Title Track There Is More Of A Funk Backdrop, But Still, There Are The Knotty Runs And Insane Harmonic Reaches Farrell Attempts On His Soprano That Crack, Falter, And Ultimately Turn Into Something Else Even More Satisfying Than What Mr. Math (Corea) Wanted, Though The Sheer Business Of The Track Is Dizzying. "Bass Folk Song" Is By Clarke, And Is The Only Thing On The Record That Actively Engages Melody Rather Than Harmonic Structures. Farrell Uses His Flute And Hancock Strides Into The Same Kind Of Territory He Explored With Miles Davis, Chopping Up Chordal Phrases Into Single Lines And Feeding Them Wholesale To The Running Pair Frontmen In Clarke And Farrell. DeJohnette Uses A Latin Backdrop To Hang His Drumming On And Pursues A Circular And Hypnotic Groove On The Cymbals And Toms. It's A Gorgeous Piece Of Music And Utilizes An Aspect Of Space Within The Melodic Frame That The Rest Of The Firebrand Tunes Do Not, Though It's No Ballad. This Is Sci-Fi Farrell At His Most Intense.” AMG - Thom Jurek more

Outback
New - LP - CTI 6014
Sealed 1972 Laminated Gatefold Original. “Outback Is The Second And Finest Of Joe Farrell's Dates For Creed Taylor's CTI Label Recorded In A Quartet Setting In 1970, With Elvin Jones, Chick Corea, And Brazilian Percussionist Airto Moreira. Outback Is Not A Commercially Oriented Funk Or Fusion Date, But An Adventurous, Spacy, Tightrope-Walking Exercise Between Open-Ended Composition And Improvisation. That Said, There Is Plenty Of Soul In The Playing. The Mysterious Title Track By John Scott Opens The Set. Staged In A Series Of Minor-Key Signatures, Farrell Primarily Uses Winds, Flutes And Piccolos To Weave A Spellbinding Series Of Ascending Melodies Over The Extended, Contrasting Chord Voicings By Corea. Jones Skitters On His Cymbals While Playing The Snare And Tom-Toms Far More Softly Than His Signature Style Usually Attests. Airto Rubs And Shimmers On Hand Drums, Going Through The Beat, Climbing On Top Of It, And Playing Accents In Tandem With Farrell In The Solo Sections. Corea's "Bleeding Orchid" Is A Ballad Played With Augmented Modes And Continually Shifting Intervals, Mapped Beautifully By Williams' Adherence To The Changes, With A Series Of Contrasting Pizzicato Fills. Farrell's Trills And Arpeggiatic Exercises Combine Both Jazz Classicism And Middle Eastern Folk Music. On Farrell's "November 68th," He Invokes John Coltrane's Version Of "My Favorite Things" As He Digs Deep Into The Tenor's Middle Register For A Song-Like Voicing, Played With A Gorgeously Bluesy Sophistication. Outback Is A Stunner, As Inspired As Anything, And Perhaps More So, That Farrell Ever Recorded.” Thom Jurek, AMG. more
