This reissued universal version seems to be pressed by emphasizing mid/high range a little bit. Resultantly DeJohnette becomes brilliant and Haden is brawny than the original capitol version. Scofield and Lovano sounds clearer in their high tones.
It just about took my head off, though. I've always loved Jack
DeJohnette, and Charlie Haden just seems to magically appear on so much that interests me. Joe Lovano is marvelous... but this mix confused me in concept - Scofield's electric style, the nature of the tunes, and acoustic bass (the no-brainer on this stuff would have been electric bass).
I've listened to it several hundred times now, and the fluidity, grit and warmth that Scofield puts behind a horn line is just amazing. Understated, but really powerful. And the DeJohnette and Haden work with it is prime.
I'd say get this, because it's WONDERFUL. But also, if you want to hear something a little different that a guitar can do while backing up a tenor - and playing off a tenor - check it out. I can't imagine being let down.
(Sorry about the bargain bin thing, John. I got nothing but love for you.)
Overall, a record that hits the mark in every aspect; a must purchase if you like the straight-ahead jazz side of John Scofield. Or if you like straight-ahead jazz at all, for that matter.
