Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. A wonderful little record from pianist Joanne Brackeen – unlike anything the artist ever recorded, as it's just a set of duets with guitarist Ryo Kawasaki, who brings in some really beautiful elements to the mix! Ryo plays an acoustic nylon string guitar, but with a dexterity that most other players would use on electric – and the balance of his instrument with Brackeen's piano is sublime – full of colors and imaginative tones, but also a fair degree of rhythmic impulses too – which guide the duo in ways that are completely refreshing throughout!

Jazz / Post Bop / Piano / Bass

Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. A hell of a record from this wonderful pianist – partly because the set only features the bass of Clint Houston for accompaniment, and no other instrumentation at all! Clint's sound is wonderful – full, rich, and extremely rhythmic – so much so, there's no need for drums at all on the record, as Houston blocks things out and paces the record from the strings up – with a commanding majesty that really seems echoed by Brackeen's lines on piano – every bit as lyrical and fluid as ever, but maybe even more powerful too! The whole thing's beautiful – more commanding than you might expect, especially for Brackeen – and titles include "Freedent", "Solar", "New True Illusion", "Steps What Was", and "Search For Peace".

Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. Really great work from pianist Joanne Brackeen – a player who's always got plenty to offer, but who really seems to find a special space here – working in a unique trio that features Clint Houston on bass and Ryo Kawasaki on guitar! Houston's bass is wonderful – full, rich, and very well-rounded – an element that brings so much depth to the record that both Ryo and Joanne can really take off – Kawasaki on these colorful lines that have a bit more bite than his more fusiony guitar albums as a leader, and Brackeen with these incredibly deft, incredibly well-spun lines on piano. The balance of sounds is wonderful – very fresh and unique – and titles include "Aft", "Haiti B", "Dreamers", and "Winter Is Here".

FLAC (EAC rip) | Log+ CUE | artwork scans (PDF file) | ~287 MB incl. 3% recovery (3 files)
Genre: Jazz, Mainstream, (piano solo) | Label: Concord Records | Year: 1990

The first entry in the extensive series of piano solo recitals held at Maybeck Recital Hall features the great Joanne Brackeen. Although classified by some originally as an avant-gardist inspired by McCoy Tyner, Brackeen continued to grow in stature and by the late '80s had her own style. She is respectful but passionate on seven standards (keeping the melody in mind during her explorations) while her four originals are given more adventurous improvisations.

An overlooked gem from the early 70s, Buddy Terry’s “Pure Dynamite” mixes post bop and fusion in a style somewhat similar to what Freddie Hubbard and Sonny Rollins were doing at the same time, but Terry also dips into some psychedelic sounds and ensemble freedom that pushes his music a little closer to Herbie Hancock’s excellent Sextet. The connection to the Sextet is furthered by the appearance of the Sextet’s Eddie Henderson and Billy Hart. Meanwhile, the new Return to Forever was also playing with post bop that bordered on the avant-garde on their first album, so its no big surprise to see RTF’s Lenny White, Airto and Stanley Clarke on here as well. The rest of this album’s all-star cast also includes Joanne Brackeen, Mtume, Woody Shaw and Kenny Barron, its hard to go wrong with a cast like that and there is certainly very little wrong with this album.

Jazz fusion guitarist Ryo Kawasaki was born in Toyko, Japan, on February 25, 1947. Although he originally planned on becoming a scientist, Kawasaki put an end to his studies early on and concentrated solely on guitar, playing with a variety of Japanese jazz groups throughout the '60s. During the early '70s, Kawasaki had relocated to the United States (New York, to be exact), where he played regularly with such jazz notables as Gil Evans, Elvin Jones, Chico Hamilton, and JoAnne Brackeen, and issued such solo releases as Juice, Ring Toss, and Nature's Revenge. Although he would issue several albums during the '80s (Little Touree, Ryo, Lucky Lady, etc.), Kawasaki had turned his back on musical performance and concentrated solely on penning music software programs for computers. Kawasaki also formed his own record label, Satellites Records, as he produced techno dance singles, but eventually returned back to his first love, releasing a steady stream of jazz releases once more, starting in the early to mid-'90s (Love Within the Universe, Sweet Life, Cosmic Rhythm, Reval, etc.).
