Releases information

This album (originally titled Don Ellis - LIVE) was previously available on cassette and 8-track, but it was only sold at Don's concerts. Even then, only half of the music was released (the tracks marked with an asterisk are bonus tracks on the CD release). This reissue marks the first widespread commercial release of this music, and, oddly, documents the only known performance of the Don Ellis Octet.

( 2006, Wounded Bird Records, WOU 6000), 2 x CD

Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars This album is newest release of Don Ellis to date. Originally recorded in 1967 during their live show in UCLA, this recording was never released in whole. Around half of it was released as cassette and was only sold during Don Ellis concerts. Now there is a full material with quite good sound quality.

This octet was assembled only once specially for this recording, so in some sense this CD set contains unique materials.

The music from the first look is a bit modernised big band sound, what isn't true. First of all, only a small combo is playing there, just trying to imitate big band's sound. But most important, there are many elements which doing this music much more complex and experimental from regular big band sound. And for sure main difference is rhythms - unusual, very mixed. They gave to all sound a bit strange, "world" atmosphere.

For me this album sounds as proto jazz fusion, still with strong be-bop and big band roots, but with many of small elements showing that the new jazz era is coming. To be honest I am not sure that this album can attract prog rock fans, but it could be interesting for jazz lovers and jazz fusion researchers.
