RIP pip pip Phillip, sir dude was really old... Morning Doug et alia. Ready to end this week so badly! Did I have covid? Nope said the test, I was just "regular" sick. Recovered just time for my second pfizer jab yest morn, and my much too long day ended in an Austin parking lot, standing next to my car slightly feverish (AGAIN) whereupon I puked into a half-filled bag of tor-TILLuh chips, and now feel a LOT better... can we PLEASE give the drummer some now?

Want to know something sickening? This track was NOT included on the original release of Coltrane's Africa/Brass. How is that possible? It first was issued on a posthumous release called "Coltrane's Modes." Then it was included on a double-CD package called The Africa/Brass Sessions.

I started out thinking I would simply play the entirety of Fred Ho's orchestration of Cal Massey's "The Black Liberation Movement Suite." But then I decided to go in this direction. A number of the songs I am playing here are actually included in Massey's overall Suite.

I am a deep appreciator of the brilliant Fred Ho. Amazing man.

There is no crying in jazz (unless you are playing an instrument). Let your ears do the wailing.

s'funny, @Doug, I thought I was hearing Herbie-ish sounds from Walton, but now I'm thinking that Herbie was also taking from Tyner...?
Avatar 10:46am Listener Gregory:

@βrian, it is always safe to say "they really got that modal thing going here." No one has ever asked me what that means, which I have no idea about.

Lemme try: "Melodious lyricism structured by a taut, driving bass line."

Many thanks Doug for the Cal Massey feature. I became aware of Massey when those Shepp albums came out featuring Massey's compositions.

Being "in tune" is over-rated. Also, the singer is Cal Massey's 7-year-old daughter.

One would have to assume that. I have only an MP3 of the A side. Search far and wide for the B side. I guess I could just roll the tape backwards and hear it for myself.
