MP3 J.d. And The Sons Of Rhythm - Primate Gestures

Contemporary collective jazz improvisation

22 MP3 Songs
JAZZ: World Fusion, JAZZ: Jazz Fusion



Details:
In some ways, PRIMATE GESTURES is the most beautiful music to come out of the collective improvisations of J.D. and the Sons. There are still the toe-tapping, good-time jams that characterize all of the group''s efforts, but there is a different touch here, with a sense of calm that seems to reflect the times and lives of the musicians.

The opening track is the Sons'' first experiment with overdubbing, having one other track on this CD using the same concept. Foreshadowing what was to come on the first side of IMAGINATION DOCTORS, this layered approach tends to be more encapsulated and smooth.

From there, the live playing takes over, with a free-flowing rhythm starting out the set. This album brings together many of the core musicians of the next six discs for the first time, and there is a sense of ''feeling each other out'' that inevitably fades in future recordings as familiarity allows for quicker reflexes from the improvisors.

This does not prevent the music from having the same confidence and enjoyment that J.D. and the Sons of Rhythm are known for. Threads were followed and developed, and themes were stated, with the same delight as the later projects. The only non-rhythm section players on PRIMATE GESTURES are Singer and Ohm, who approach their soloing as always, with hunger and intensity. The open harmonic field surrounding this helps create the spaciousness of the sound, and enhances the subtle flavor of this music.

PRIMATE GESTURES began the cohesion of the current group, and in addition to showing where the group is coming from, has the added benefit of, on the whole, having the most impressionistic tone produced to date. Get a copy to relax with and enjoy today!

********************

"...we remained with the format of live jamming with no preconceived notion as to what we were going to do. The only exceptions were the two songs that Frank Singer overdubbed over some drum beats. With Frank and Mike Ohm we knew creative things would happen. Add to this the incredible bass players and you have magic. We hope you enjoy."
