Prophet album for sale Product Description

Prophet album for sale by Oliver Lake was released on the Black Saint label. This tribute to avant-garde titan Eric Dolphy is one of saxophonist Oliver Lake's most conventional, straight-ahead sessions. Though it is a stretch to consider any reading of Dolphy's work "conventional," PROPHET stands in stark contrast to Lake's usually free, chamber-jazz outings (Lake sometimes plays with an electric guitarist, drummer, and no bassist). Prophet buy CD music These cuts find the altoist in the company of a standard drums-bass-piano rhythm section and a trumpeter (Baikida Carroll) on pieces that feature more straightforward structures. Three compositions by Dolphy are featured--"The Prophet," with its siren call; the lyrical "Something Sweet, Something Tender;" and the wonderfully warped "Hat and Beard" (which was Dolphy's tribute, in turn, to Thelonious Monk--tracing this musical lineage to its origin). Lake's treatment of these tunes is faithful, yet vital, and Dolphy's deep influence on Lake's playing--one hears similarities in tone and especially in the witty, acrobatic lead lines--is apparent. The other three numbers are by Lake, but written in a Dolphy-esque vein, with strong bop melodies, intervallic leaps, and a charming sense of humor. None of this is to say that the music isn't challenging: This is still lively avant-bop of the first order. Recording information: Sound Heights Studios, Brooklyn, NY (08/11/1980/08/12/1980). Photographer: Isio Saba. Unknown Contributor Role: Pheeroan akLaff. Personnel: Oliver Lake (saxophone), Baikida Carroll (trumpet), Donald Smith (piano), Jerome Harris (bass guitar), Pheeroan Ak Laff (drums).
