    PAUL GONSALVES QUARTET

    Boom-Jackie-Boom-Chick

    [engl] 
    1964 seemed to be a great year for jazz music in general and this special piece from a quartet led by the great tenor saxophonist Paul Gonsalves who was a long time member of the Duke Ellington Orchestra confirms this once more in an astonishing way. This record is a typical instrumental post bop album still not on the verge of progressive and free jazz filled to the max with memorable yet steaming compositions. Gonsalves nails it as a saxophone player and his backing crew consisting of piano, stand up bass and drums joins in to create a stream of sound that drags your soul away directly when you put the needle in the groove. The playing feels easy with sweet but rather melancholic melody lines from piano and sax. It seems like they were singing love songs to each other while the rhythm section lays down the beat both lead instruments dance to. The swinging sleaziness of the one or another passage heats up your blood to a simmering level. As if you were swallowed into a scene of Jack Kerouac’s “On the road”, where a sax player goes wild in a small and dusty club somewhere at the West Coast. Paul Gonsalves and his guys take their listener onto a journey due to these very expressive and strong melodies. This should have been a shining crown jewel of jazz where swing benignly turns into bop.

    HAROLD MCNAIR WITH ORNETTE COLEMAN'S SIDEMEN

    Affectionate Fink

    [engl] An incredible record from reedman Harold McNair ? one of the key Jamaican jazz players who hit the London scene in the same post-colonial wave as Joe Harriott and Shake Keane ? and maybe our favorite of the bunch! Harold's a hell of a talent on both tenor and flute ? and although he might be best known for his background work on late 60s Donovan albums, he really soars here as a soloist ? working with Ornette Coleman group members David Izenzon on bass and Charles Moffett on drums ? both of whom swing wonderfully in McNair's company! The album bills Izenzon and Moffett strongly on the cover ? as if they're one of the main attractions ? but what's most compelling is the way that McNair and pianist Alan Branscombe bring the American musicians into their own sort of groove ? a modal, soulful style that's completely sublime ? and which makes the album a killer all the way through. Titles include the original ''Affectionate Fink'' ? plus great takes on ''I Love You'', ''O Barquinho'', ''You Stepped Out Of A Dream'', and ''Here's That Rainy Day'' ? all soulful swingers.
