Pete’s Place Playlist – September 12, 2011

Herbie Hancock “Hang Up Your Hangups” from 1975 Columbia LP “Man-Child”

Thelonious Monk, “Bemsha Swing” from Brilliant Corners (1956). Maybe Monk’s best small group record with Sonny Rollins and Max Roach. Max found tympani drums in the studio and plays them on this track.

The Bad Plus, “Anthem for the Ernest” from Suspicious Activity (2005).

Buena Vista Social Club, “Chan, Chan”. Ry Cooder’s project to record Cuban musicians in Cuba.

Gary Burton and Keith Jarrett “Grow Your Own”. 1971 period piece.

Weather Report “Havona”. Jaco Pastorious feature from Heavy Weather (1977)

McCoy Tyner “Fly With the Wind” from 1976 LP of same name. Some jazz hardcores don’t like strings but this music soars.

Lafayette Gilcrest “Assume the Position” from “The Music According to Gilcrest”

Mose Allison “What’s Your Movie”. My man Mose.

Art Pepper “September Song” — recorded September, 1979. Pete’s usually has a policy against “standard” songs from musicals. But Pepper’s hard-life sounds comes through in anything.

Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, “The West Country” from UFO Tofu.

Bobby Previte, “The King So Far” from “Claude’s Late Morning”. Downtown New York first-call drummer with techno-jazz.
