Intensely interesting jazz improvisations Laurence Cook-Jacques Coursil-Warren Gale-Perry Robinson-Steve Tintweiss – AVE B FREE JAM: Some readers here may be aware that I used to participate in free jams much like the intensely interesting jazz that this quintet rolls out for us… the difference is that the groups I played in/with were on a much more amateur level… but I’ll tell you one thing – their 1967 jam just KICKED it.
The players were Laurence Cook – drums; Jacques Coursil – trumpet; Warren Gale – trumpet; Perry Robinson – bass clarinet and Steve Tintweiss – bass, and as you listen to the 3:14 opener, you’ll hear the absolute affinity for seamless and uninterrupted improv they had for each other… raw and edgy through and through!
Just from a “historical” perspective, if you’re an improvised music aficionado, this is one of the most important albums you will ever have… over an hour (21 tracks, most under 4 minutes) of freestyle madness that will make your head spin lol.
This isn’t one of those sessions with clear lines between the tunes, so what you need to do is reserve and hour or so for a headphone session with no interruptions… the recording is an improvisor’s treasure and gets a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99.
