The mafia's Paul Vitti is back in prison and will need some serious counseling when he gets out.
Our first studies about the music culture of Syriacs dates back to the years with 1980s. The first ideas for the creation of the album that you hold developed in year 1996. Although the album was included in the publication program of Kalan Miizik, unfortunately, the necessary preparations could not be completed and thus the album could not reach you. As a result of the difficult and tiresome works that we have been carrying out for about a year, the Album of Syriac Music comprising of two CDs and a booklet was created.
Quite an unusual album from Grant Green – a record that's quite different than his earlier records for Blue Note, but still pretty darn great overall! Grant's working here in a large group – Kudu style – with arrangements by David Matthews, but a sound that's still pretty lean overall! There's a fair bit of great players in the lineup – including Jon Faddis on trumpet, Hubert Laws on flute, and Joe Farrell on tenor – and the horns soar out nicely to set the scene over some tightly stepping backings – all served up with plenty of room for Grant to solo spaciously on guitar! The title track – "The Main Attraction" – is nearly 20 minutes long – and the other two tracks, "Creature" and "Future Feature", both approach the 10 minute mark themselves!
