Hartmut Geerken Discography of CDs


Cassava Balls Cassava Balls CD (1984)
CD $20.29 Buy It  Details
Hartmut Geerken CD discography Hartmut Geerken is far from being a household name even among the most knowledgeable new music aficionados, but this important reissue should do something to elevate his status. The very talented pianist is joined here by tenor saxophonist John Tchicai and percussionist Famoudou Don Moye for an explosive and totally engaging recording. Adding three important tracks to the original LP, this recording is alternatively (and simultaneously) raw, humorous, ethnic, and virtuosic. Geerken performs on nearly 30 "instruments" in addition to the piano, including Peking opera gongs, Afghan monkey drums, shortwave radios, and mokattam pot rattles. Tchicai lives up to his potential as a ...

Hartmut Geerken albums German writer and percussionist Hartmut Geerken receives top billing on this two-CD set featuring his musical involvement with the Art Ensemble of Chicago, recorded live in 1996.

Sun Ra Arkestra Meets Salah Ragab in Egypt Sun Ra Arkestra Meets Salah Ragab in Egypt CD (1984)
CD $21.15 Buy It  Details
Hartmut Geerken CD discography This important reissue should be greeted joyfully by Sun Ra aficionados, as it fills a hole in his discography, but it is neither stellar Ra nor great jazz. The beautifully packaged CD collects less than forty minutes of the Archestra performing in Egypt with legendary percussionist Salah Ragab, and adds two selections from The Cairo Jazz Band, a short piece by an Egyptian sextet, and an interesting track from The Cairo Free Jazz Ensemble. The music from the Egyptians offers a fascinating peek at an attempt to integrate jazz improvisation with Arab culture. The ...

Hartmut Geerken albums This two-CD live sequel to Cassava Balls (Golden Years of New Jazz 4) captures the flavor of the trio's tour of Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia in the spring of 1985. The exquisite percussion of Famoudou Don Moye (of the Art Ensemble of Chicago) and Hartmut Geerken colors every tune with a Dionysian joy. John Tchicai blows hard and convincingly, as he belts out simple riffs and improvises melodically and passionately. Locals, including children and accomplished percussionists, occasionally join the trio, and the native influences are always apparent. The eight-page booklet is a plus, ...
