Been going through a lot of new music and some older. Part of the time I have been revisiting jazz. My first jazz record was Keith Jarrett and Gary Burton and at the time I was unaware of Jarrett’s participation in Charles LLoyd‘s group. Just recently I ran across this very swinging tune from LLoyd (Water is Wide) which reminded me a little (why exactly I am not sure) of Jarrett’s De Drums.
De Drums from the Fort Yaweh album is quite something with a not inconsiderable contribution from Charlie Haden on bass.
(ps a little shout out to Rachel Alderman in Swansea for saying hi on my blog after so long a dormancy. Took another look at it and thought I might as well give it another go for a while.)
