listening to June 14-15, 2012

Grachan Moncur III – Evolution
McCoy Tyner – Supertrios

The drummer is the common link between these two recordings. Tony Williams at 18(!) in 1963 on Evolution and then years later on Supertrios in 1977. The Moncour album is new to me, recorded at about the time Tony started playing with Miles…great sensitivity to the resonance of the drums.

Tony plays half the Tyner album and Jack DeJohnette plays on the rest. And what an album! Many people told me what a great album this is and now I know for myself. Tony is so exciting because he constantly surprises me. This would be the next thing to check out after his playing with Miles Davis.

Why did I wait so long?

Edit: I heard Tony play once at the Bottom Line, NYC date (1991?) of a six date tour with Jan Hammer. Rock tunes…Miami Vice, Led Boots, Blue Wind and Tony tore the place up. I’m so fortunate to have even heard Tony play, even in a rock band.

Check out his playing with Miles Davis, the Lifetime with Larry Young, those early Blue Note dates when he was still a teenager….listen to the truth.

Wait a year and it all sounds so fresh again.

For years I’ve posted what I’ve listened to during the day. I’ve been doing this on Facebook since Fall 2008, now I’ve decided to start doing this on the blog.
