Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Vibraphonist Teddy Charles was a jazzman ahead of his time, and his forward-thinking playing, writing and overall presentation is well illustrated on "New Directions." This now remaindered limited edition OJC title collects the two original Prestige "New Directions" 10"s and the earlier "Teddy Charles and his Trio" on one CD. This first session comprises tracks 1-8 and was recorded on November 10, 1951 featuring Don Roberts on guitar and Kenny O'Brien on bass. These numbers are mostly standards, but with Charles also playing other instruments (marimba, xylophone, glockenspiel and even bongos) and without a proper drummer, they are an early foray into the world of chamber jazz. Songs 9-12 are from a December 23, 1952 session with guitarist Jimmy Raney, bassist Dick Nivison and drummer Ed Shaughnessy. Unfortunately these tracks are needlessly duplicated on Collaboration: West, but their inclusion here is more purposeful. The last date has pianist Hall Overton joining Charles and Shaughnessy for the final four tracks, made less than a month later on January 19, 1953. The lack of bass here makes this music sound increasingly avant-garde, and those who like Evolution or Teddy Charles & The Prestige Jazz Quartet will enjoy these concluding numbers. In all, "New Directions" is a good way to go, but find the path now before it becomes more obscure, and expensive.
