Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Word is that when Blue Note Records urged trumpeter Tim Hagans to dig in for a neo-drum & bass session, the brass maestro immersed himself in Roni Size's oeuvre. The sprinting palpitations of Size's music is certainly all over Hagans's Animation, as is the oft-neglected electric 1970s-era Miles Davis. Despite influence, Hagans's conception is sharp and fresh. His trumpet playing reaches far higher than Miles, topping out in fast runs that maintain a tonal fullness that sounds more colored by free jazz than by bop. The acoustic musicians who back Hagans include Billy Kilson and Ira Coleman, each of whom plays with tight, crackling intensity. As for the drum & bass elements, they're certainly reminiscent of On the Corner, with smeary electronic lines and crunchy guitar fronting layered beat samples and breathless speed. Some might associate Hagans's methodology with that of Ben Neill or Bob Green's Grassy Knoll or even Amon Tobin, but Hagans is the most clearly jazzed of the bunch. And as his tribute to fellow brassman Freddie Hubbard, Hagans is a supreme technician and inventive improviser. --Andrew Bartlett

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing CD March 28, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I have not heard anything new in jazz in some time, but this CD blew my socks off. While some may argue that it is merely an extension of what Miles was doing in the 70s, it goes much further. This CD has the potential to reach a much wider audience than most other jazz CDs, but I feel that poor marketing on the part of Blue Note and prejudice might hold it back. It is very rare that there is such a fine CD that pleases the masses without sacrificing or watering down the on the most important aspect, improvisation.

Fresh and interesting fusion of be-bop and drum-n-bass. The first and last tracks represent a more straight forward jazz sensibility and sound, with the rest of the album exploring what happens when a drum-n-bass collides with Tim's trumpet. Produced by jazz performer Bob Belden who also plays piano on a few tunes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the traditionalist April 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I picked this one up after listening to Hagans & Belden's "Re-Animation: Live in Montreal." The first impression I had was that Tim Hagans has taken the 70s-80s Miles Davis sound to the next level, perhaps in the direction Davis would have gone. I still have this feeling when I listen to either of these CDs. Moreover, one might assume that "Re-Animation: Live in Montreal" is merely a live version of "Animation - Imagination," but the two CDs are distinct, each with unique qualities. I love this studio set, but sometimes I prefer the live one in Montreal, where Tim Hagans on trumpet, Bob Beldon on soprano sax, and four supporting musicians pushed the sound further. This studio effort, however, has much to recommend it. First, the list of musicians is impressive, including Ira Coleman on bass, Kurt Rosenwinkel on guitar, DJ Smash on synthesizers, and Kevin Hays on Fender Rhodes. Second, though there's a lot of improv going on here, the playing is extremely tight, giving the kind of crisp, clean sound that Miles Davis achieved on his best studio recordings ("Get Up with It" being one of my favorites). The advantage of "Re-Animation: Live in Montreal," on the other hand, is that the musicians have the music down and are able to stretch out, which is what they seem to do best. Both of these CDs are highly recommended and complement each other nicely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing October 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
What can I say except that I was blown away from the first listen. Otherworldly only begins to describe this modern masterpiece. I had to check the recording date to be certain that this wasn't remastered 1970's era jazz. Just wonderful.
