On hymns such as "The Old Rugged Cross" and "Blessed Assurance" the pianist seems to take the utmost care not to be guilty of "jazzing up" the melody or of substituting more modern, "hipper" chords and voicings. The formula is usually: A. straightforward, reverential playing of the song the first time through followed by B. minimal improvisation the 2nd time around. Sometimes the formula is varied, with Haden taking the melodic lead, as on "Down By the Riverside," and occasionally either instrumentalist will play a mainstream, "swinging" improvisation on tunes like "Give Me That Old Time Religion." But such moments are necessarily abbreviated by the requirements of the song, and when Jones deems it inappropriate to risk a "boppish" phrase, he comes close to outlining the chords by arpeggiating them rather than using them as departure points for anything adventurous.
In some respects it's a daring approach in its very simplicity.Read more ›
I was so impressed with "Steal Away" that I started sending copies to friends around the country. An ex-girlfriend in the Northwest was so woefully pre-technical that she didn't even have a CD player. I was disappointed I couldn't share my enthusiasm, but then she told me her husband works at a cancer treatment center. The folks who come in for chemo had made "Steal Away" their #1 request. That's high praise and an affirmation that I sent it to the right place.
