Product Description

From Joe Lovano:

This was not only my first trio recording as a leader, but the first time I played with the great Ed Blackwell. I wrote all the tunes for the session with Blackwell in mind, because he's been a great inspiration through the years. Blackwell's sound, touch, ideas, execution and personality all came through when he played. He was an amazing improviser and always created a very complete dialogue with you.


The title, Sounds of Joy, is what I felt from Blackwell from all the music I heard him play through the years. Strength and Courage I wrote for him because that was his essence. He endured many years of kidney problems. In fact, he was one of the longest surviving dialysis patients, pioneering a technique where you could travel and do the procedure at different hospitals on the road.


I played with Blackwell for two years, when we recorded this, and my first gig at the Village Vanguard. Like me, Anthony Cox, the bassist, was playing with John Scofield s group at the time.

Review

The Lovano date is a tour de force. In, out, the blues, ballads, the man from Cleveland has it all covered, from A to Z and beyond. Bret Primack --Jazz Times

Format: Audio CD
Joe Lovano puts in a great performance here - some free-wheeling sax playing, and even some subtle ballads to smooth things over. The band is Anthony Cox on Bass and Ed Balckwell on drums. Cox in particular deserves mention, because his bass work is quite nice, and some of his solos are extraordinary.
Apart from that, the production quality of this release is very "clubby" with grounds the music and gives you a "being there" kind of feel that is always welcome. I hadn't pegged this to be a great Joe Lovano album, but having purchased it, I was pleasantly surprised. Great work, and anyone into Joe is in for a real treat.
