Jazz New - LP JBH0025LP Jonny
Sealed, Very Limited Edition 2008 Reissue Of The Fabulously Rare 1968 Recording. "This Album Is A Missing Link In The Discography Of Herbie Hancock, A Recorded Version Of A Jazz Concert Comprised Of Lyric And Sacred Material From The Friday Night Prayer Service In The Jewish Synagogue. Privately Released In An Edition Of A Few Hundred Copies, The Music Was Composed By Jonathan Klein & Commissioned By Rabbi David Davis In 1965. Klein Was 17 At The Time. Composed For Piano, Bass, Drums, Soprano/Alto/Baritone Saxophones, French Horn, Flute, Fl├╝gelhorn, And Two Voices, Klein Performed It With His Own Group And Rabbi Davis. In 1968 The Synagogue Commissioned A Concert With Hancock; Jerome Richardson On Flute, Tenor, And Alto Saxophones; Klein On French Horn And Baritone Sax; Trumpeter Thad Jones; Bassist Ron Carter; And Drummer Grady Tate. Other Participants Are Rabbi Davis, Soprano Vocalist Antonia Lavanne, And Contralto Phyllis Bryn-Julson. Is It Good? Heavens Yes. One Can Hear Traces Of Vince Guaraldi And The Early Columbia Period Of Dave Brubeck In These Compositions. Hancock's No Imitator; He Was And Remains A Tremendously Lyrical And Rhythmically Inventive Pianist, And The Band Plays These Charts Effortlessly With Requisite Soul And Swing. There Are Beautiful Solos By Hancock, Richardson, And Jones, And The Rhythm Section Is Fluid, Fresh, And Upbeat Throughout. The Vocalists Might Bother Some Listeners, But Essentially, These Tunes And The Manner In Which They Are Presented And Recorded Are Quite Striking.The Longest Track Here, "Torah Service-Adoration," Is A Hopping Soul-Jazz Number With Killer Funky Piano Work By Hancock In Full-On Blue Note Mode. Mastered From An LP Copy, Since The Masters No Longer Exist, There Was Some Groove Wear Near The End Of Each Side Due To A Worn Stylus. Considering The Source, Jonny Trunk Has Done An Excellent Job Of Cleaning It Up Without Sacrificing A Bit Of The Performance." - Thom Jurek, All Music Guide.... more details
