Pete’s Place – 8/26/13 Playlist

Charlie Hunter Trio, “Come As You Are” from Bing, Bing, Bing (1995). Guitarist with drums and sax, covering Nirvana.

Orrin Evans, “Big Small” from Flip the Script (2012). One of the fine piano, bass, and drums trios going.

Marc Ribot y los Cubanos Postizos, “No Me I’Lores Mas (Don’t Cry to Me)”. Guitarist with Cuban musicians. 1998 LP one of Pete’s favorites.

Charles Lloyd, “Sombrero Sam” from Soundtrack (Atlantic, 1969). Mostly flute playing, with back beat. Lloyd had substantial appeal to rock listeners in mid/late 60s, without watering down the music. Still going strong well into his 70s.

Bob Belden, “Genesis” from Black Dahlia (2001). Music inspired by the Hollywood drama.

Lee Morgan, “Search for the New Land” from the 1964 Blue Note album of the same name. Great stretched out track with the leader on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor sax, and a rhythm section of Herbie Hancock, Reggie Workman (bass) and Billy Higgins (drums). THe extra flavor added by Grant Green’s guitar figures.

Garaj Mahal, with Fareed Haque on guitar, “Hindi Gumbo” from Mondo Garaj (2001). Jam music featuring guitarist/professor (Northern Illinois University).

Clifford Brown/Max Roach Quintet, “George’s Dilemma” from Study in Brown (1955). Vintage hard-bop by then young trumpeter and veteran drummer. Good as it gets.

the Bad Plus, “Never Stop” from 2010 album of same name. Channeling the White Stripes.

Rudresh Mahanthappa, “Parakram #2)” from Samdh (2011). Sax player, “playing” with sounds of the city.
