Bolero

Every year like Christmas you have the summer sales in Paris, only time of the year where you can see women get up at four o' clock in the morning to stand in line in front of the fashion shops at seven to have a run on clothes. Well apart from clothes you have sales in record shops, which is much more relaxing affair then the clothes rush believe me!

So my last found was a Larry Coryell Cd, which combines two records, both released on 'String', a solo record from 1981 and a record with the guitarist Brian Keane from 1983. Both records are great, the solo record slightly more experimental with two adaptions from Maurice Ravel (Bolero & le Tombeau de Couperin), but my favourite is the Duo record. One of my alltime favourite Coryell records is 'Twin House' with Phillip Catherine and this comes quite close. Both guitarists play Ovation 6 & 12 strings and the sound is fantastic, the greater part of the compostions are by Keane, with a lighter side reminding Lee Ritenour ,especially the south american touch, but the interplay and improvisations of the two musicians are really interesting.

I actually think Coryell should be in the PA
 
His early doscography (until the end of the 70's) is perfectly suited for this site.

I know he worked with Oregon, but I haven't heard his solo stuff. I will check it out.

Both Coryell and Oregon got their start on the Vanguard label....and, to me, both did their best work on V'guard.  I just picked up Coryell's Spaces and Planet End ridiculously cheap....excellent records featuring Corea, Cobham, Viritius and JMcLaughlin and a lot of free jamming.
I like to feel the suspense when you're certain you know I am there.....

Very much in support of Coryell's inclusion. As the book Jazz Rock A History reveals, Larry Coryell has been playing jazz rock since the mid 60's - although Coryell's own claims that he taught John McLaughlin jazz rock, are touch over the top. Discovered Coryell is most accessible, when I had a long talk with him about 8 years ago in London's Jazz Cafe, when he was touring a revamped 11th House (with Mouzon, Berlin and a Japanese trumpeter).
 
If you want a flavour of an up-to-date 11th House, check out Steve Clarke's Network album Highly Committed Media Players (Wenlock Records) which also has Jack Bruce playing bass.
 
However, my favourite of the last decade is Coryell, Smith & Coster: Cause & Effect (Tone Center Records) which showed Coryell was back from a prolonged period in the wilderness
 
However, the recent Electric where Coryell is joined by what promised to be a superb rhythm section of Lenny White and Victor Bailey, is a real disappointment
Electric
 
The trio's most recent album is released later this month -  comments about it will be welcomed.
