5.0 out of 5 stars The remarkable Mr. Reed February 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD
As far as I know this is the first Amazon review of any of Mike Reed's CDs. He deserves better. He has already produced an excellent body of work and presents concerts in the Chicago area of other musicians whose work he admires (his web site states that he works in or presents 150+ shows a year). He is a paragon of that spirit of communal musical endeavor and research which seems to define the current Chicago scene (or so it appears from Portland, OR).
As far as I can tell, MR lead's two main groupings Loose Assembly (I promise a review of their The Speed of Change in a few days) and People, Places & Things.
The latter is the grouping on this CD and consists of a quartet comprised of
Mike Reed- drums, piano and some of the compositions
Tim Haldeman- tenor sax and piano
Greg Ward- alto sax and piano
Jason Roebke- bass and piano.
Like many of the first great generation of the AACM, Mike Reed is an historian of the music especially the musical history of Chicago. Go to his web site and you will find pictures of the Great Clifford Jordan (most underknown tenor sax player ever- if you don't have Glass Bead Games or In The World you are missing two of the essential documents of late '60s and '70s jazz), news about the Chicago scene and the state of the AACM, and about the music scene in Europe.
It would seem that part of the reason for the People, Places & Things groupings was to revisit a particularly fertile earlier period of the Chicago scene.
"The original focus of our quartet was to investigate and reinvent some of the under-recorded, under-recognized aspects of the vibrant Chicago jazz scene circa 1954-60. On Proliferation, we brought ideas and new approaches to music of another time.
