In , with multi-instrumentalist E. In , Warren left Ghana for Chicago, where, with a group assembled by drummer and vibraphonist Red Saunders, he recorded Africa Speaks America Answers , his first album under his own name.
Later in his career, New York-born bandleader and timbale wizard Tito Puente recorded cheesy albums of amorphous Latin dance music aimed at middle-American audiences, in which the percussion quotient was dialled down to polite levels. But this early, roots LP makes no concessions.
The music is stripped to its rhythmic core — no vocalist, keyboard or brass section, just an A-list quintet in which Puente is accompanied by acoustic bassist Bobby Rodriguez and conga and bongo players Willie Bobo, Patato Valdes and Mongo Santamaria. Most of the eight tracks explore Cuban-derived mambo and cha-cha-cha rhythms.
If you love percussion-breaks, here are 34 minutes of pure heaven. Transition was a shortlived label set up by producer Tom Wilson who, as one of the few African American rock producers of the s, worked on breakthrough albums by Bob Dylan, the Velvet Underground, the Mothers of Invention and Soft Machine.
Taylor was in front, but Ornette Coleman would emerge a year later and Sun Ra was limbering up. Bags of energy, solid guitar work, but few signs yet of the greatness that was to come. A collectable artefact nonetheless. Chicago bluesman Little Walter did for the harmonica what Jimi Hendrix later did for the electric guitar. In response, Walter developed the technique of cupping a microphone next to his harmonica and plugging the lead into his own amplifier, turning it up to 11 and purposefully creating distortion and other high-decibel sonic effects.
It is no coincidence that he employed the young Albert Ayler in his own touring band in The Best Of Little Walter includes 10 of his best-selling singles.
A master technician, Segovia was also a supremely soulful player, and this, like all his albums of the period, is a delight. The disc featured Kirk on two obscure, signature instruments, the manzello and the stritch, as well as the tenor saxophone, and also introduced his revolutionary technique of playing two or three horns at once.
King released the LP in a limited run and to little comment and it continued to be overlooked once Kirk made his breakthrough in the s. Enthusiasts found a solution by making single-sided discs on x-ray film. Audio quality was poor, but better than nothing. The practice was banned by the Soviet authorities in , but continued.
While Berry put the instrumental focus on his guitar, Richard bounced his piano off an eviscerating saxophone section featuring tenor soloists Lee Allen and Grady Gaines. Fifty years on, it is easy to mock the exotica of bandleaders such as Les Baxter and Martin Denny.
Meanwhile, sit down with a Pina Colada, Mai Tai or exotic cheroot, as the fancy takes you, and kick back. While Les Baxter and Martin Denny were in the mids exploring earthbound exoticism, Sun Ra had already embarked on an off-planet trajectory.
If you only buy one bluegrass album in your life, this is the one to get. Powerful magic. Working in parallel to, but in isolation from, American electronic innovators in the s, German theorist and composer Karlheinz Stockhausen influenced a generation of conservatoire-trained musicians and composers, along with the jazz and rock avant gardes of the s and s.
The piece integrates electronically-produced sounds with the human voice and is also a blueprint for the experiments in spatial sound-design which Stockhausen introduced in live performances in the s. Post-bop US jazz-pianism was not all about gospel-drenched funk, as played by Horace Silver and his disciples. Like Al Haig, Ahmad Jamal was a leading light of an alternative school. But while Haig pursued harmonic exploration, Jamal favoured simpler, stripped-down melodicism.
He was assiduously championed by Miles Davis at a time when most critics were writing the Chicago-based musician off as a lightweight. Both musicians learnt their art in rural Mississippi. From embossed brass to floral side plates and classic wire frames, you need never store anything in a boring old box ever again.
