Editorial Reviews

Product Description

A must for every blues & guitar aficionado, featuring special guest Hubert Sumlin, legendary guitar innovator and sideman to Howlin Wolf and Muddy Waters!

Elliott Sharp s TERRAPLANE synthesizes the intersection of country and urban blues with Mississippi fife & drum bands, post-Mingus/Ayler jazz, and the rhythmic force of the groove, from the shuffle to contemporary dance music. Features guest artist Hubert Sumlin, legendary guitar innovator and sideman to Howlin Wolf and Muddy Waters, as well as singer/poets Eric Mingus and Tracie Morris.

Review

Sharp has an encyclopedic understanding of the blues guitar, including its voice-like phrasing, its elastic intonation, its tension and release, and the all important cry. He approaches improvisation from a jazz perspective without making the exercise the least bit academic. --Pop Matters

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Avant-garde jazz guitarist Elliott Sharp began his "Terraplane" project to explore the blues in 1994, and it began as an interesting but not revolutionary Hendrix-influenced project. By the time of this 2012 album, Terraplane had evolved into something more visionary. Sharp's guitar work continues to be exciting not for its flashy riffs but for its textural explorations, but more importantly, the arrangements draw in the best of Sharp's experience from jazz. The music is wild and unpredictable, best described as Hendrix meets Sun Ra. At times, Sharp layers his guitar noise over a completely in-the-pocket blues-rock rhythm. At other times, wild horn arrangements fill that role, with greats like Curtis Fowlkes and Hubert Sumlin along for the ride. Curtis has played trombone with heavyweights like Bill Frisell, and deservedly so. And we all know who Hubert Sumlin was. His presence here lends Sharp some credibility with the traditionalists that he seems so intent on irritating.

I am not generally a fan of avant-garde jazz. I tend to lean towards hard bop and mid-60's post bop. Much of Sun Ra's music is inaccessible to me. But I can't get enough of Sharp's Terraplane project these days. Even the wildest music can sound great with just a bit of grounding, and Sharp has found that balance. Whatever else Sharp is known for, albums like this make a case for his inclusion in an elite category of musicians keeping the blues fresh and alive as something other than fodder for museums.
