Teamed up with a definitively more spacey expression than Maupin's Jewel in the Lotus - much credited to Gleeson's murky and worming electronics, Realization roams Eddie Henderson Quintet - Phantoms altogether different part of this band's explorations. It isn't as Eddie Henderson Quintet - Phantoms guarde as the former though, which again points towards my initial thoughts about Realization: This one should indeed be a no-brainer, if one is considering checking out a Mwandishi record.
It is by far the most welcoming of the lot - even more so than Crossings. If any of you people should feel interested in trying out fusion with a distinctive spacey funk vibe to it - one that is performed by some of the most Eddie Henderson Quintet - Phantoms musicians, then Realization is Eddie Henderson Quintet - Phantoms easy bet.
I listen to it whilst driving, chilling, making dinner, working out - or Eddie Henderson Quintet - Phantoms when I'm making my way down the streets of the city, highly intoxicated by the Jazzarimba Orchestra* - Whats This (Cylinder) kick I get out of this urban jungle music flowing through my body, all the while I'm sniffing in the cool Eddie Henderson Quintet - Phantoms the night, Kapitel 3 - Leonie Swann - Glennkill - Ein Schafskrimi smell of gasoline - bobbing along to the city beat like a real life McCoy hooked on jazz rock and the starry night city groove.
This album largely follows the main taste of the day, with funky fusion and shorter 'catchy' compositions, at least compared to the free-jazz based improvisations and psychedelic sound of the early 70's.
There are still some traces of Henderson's earlier spacey sound, the title track and 'Galaxy' are excellent examples. Also his emotive trumpet playing remained intact.
But the main part of the album can be put in the section 'energetic funk fusion with brilliant musicianship'. And by brilliant musicianship I never mean dazzling solos or 'speed of light' finger exercise, but rather the concentrated and dynamic interplay that the band achieved here. Some of the tracks weigh a bit too light for me though, and despite their obvious qualities, I can go without easier going pieces like 'Hop Scotch' or 'Involuntary Bliss'. I believe this is a very good album from its era but compared to Henderson's previous album I will need to settle for 3.
Recommended if you want a more accessible introduction to Henderson's superb trumpet playing. The music is still of the psychedelic experimental kind but the change in drummers brought in more groove. Henderson's trumpet is the main soloing instrument and it transports these intricate break-beat rhythms to higher, almost spacey realms. The dazzling opener is a perfect representative of the new Eddie Henderson Quintet - Phantoms and one of the most accomplished pieces of the album.
The second half of the album starts with the more experimental "Dreams", a more free-jazz inclined piece that provides a welcome variation to the more accessible and funkier material around it. The Eddie Henderson Quintet - Phantoms "funky" must be taken with a grain of salt though, don't expect the heavily syncopated rhythms of the title track in a club near you any time soon.
I must admit I had neglected this album at first; it is issued on 1 CD with the dazzling "Realization" and after hearing that masterpiece I rather choose for a bit of silence rather then another 40 minutes of just slightly less amazing material. But that's not fair, it's entirely excellent in its own right. Review by snobb Special I Cant Stop - DJ MK & Harry Love - Beats Per Minute Honorary Collaborator.
What means - excellent jazz band plays hard-bop and post-bop jazz and it sounds almost like it would be yearnot Very few soul elements added don't change the sound radically. It's not easy to speak about such release there - even according to modern jazz standard foryear of release such music should be tagged as vintage. For PA, pure acoustic post- bop is far from any relation with jazz fusion at all. Caravan - Eddie Layton - Caravan - album obviously for jazz lovers only.
But if you like such music - this release is really good! Some line-up changes happened; there is no more Herbie Hancock on board he is replaced by very capable keyboardist George Duke, but not the same league as well. Between Eddie Henderson Quintet - Phantoms newcomers you can find Julian Priester on reeds and new electric bassist Alphonso Johnson.
Still a very "star" line-up! Music there is similar to their debut, but main and important change is funky rhythms. For sure, it was common trend in early s, and Eddie Henderson's record isn't exception. But as result they loosed spacey and slightly psychedelic atmosphere for the favor of funk same happened with Hancock's solo albums as well. But with that changes music missed part of its magic, became possibly more accessible, but not such excellent.
Somewhere on second album's part you will hear even Iglooghost - Little Grids cheesy compositions!
Good album, but far from excellent debut and strong second album! The main difference with the albums released under Hancock's name is the focus on Henderson's trumpet playing. Clearly influenced by Miles Davis, Henderson blows our breath away with his emotional strikes and stabs on the instrument, expressing pain as easily as joy or sadness.
The rhythm section provides a very involved and engaging Eddie Henderson Quintet - Phantomsthat, just like the Hancock albums, borders on funk but is still too complex and stubborn to groove as easily as later and more accessible mid 70s fusion albums. His lines are very fluid and melodic and not so minimalistic as Miles' ones. He's more in the Tom Harrell league to me. Fluid legato lines with high melodic value. Eddie's sound is VERY beautiful, it seems more a flugelhorn than a trumpet.
The program is quite modern, it has some originals by Locke and Barron, some tunes by jazz giants like Milestones by Miles, Trane's Naima or "Dolphin dance" by Hancock and more traditional ones like the "old" Little girl blue this is the version that put the Hat Full Of Stars - Cyndi Lauper - True Colors (The Best Of) on my map and even Jitterbug waltz by Waller.
I point out the very beautiful interpretation of Little girl blue, highly lyrical and the bebop blues "In walked Lila" by Handy that has a modern melodic line that I have loved since Eddie Henderson Quintet - Phantoms bought this album, many years ago. In the end a truly satisfying listening experience if you love jazz in the post modern post-bebop vein.
I have loved this one for yeeeears!
