Blythe's sound
Case Quarter | CT USA | 11/10/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"the personnel: blythe on alto, hamiet bluiett on baritone, kelvin bell on guitar, gust william tsilis on vibraphone and marimba, bob stewart on tuba, arto tuncboyaci on percussion and voice, and famoudou don moye on drums.

the majority of the songs are blues based, some bop. avant garde jazz figures in on the song, matter of fact, with blythe and bluiett blowing together.

a good example of the blythe sound. substituting for the heavy bass are bob stewart on tuba and tuncboyaci's percussion. to deepen his sound more, blythe, instead of using a pianist on this outing, uses tsilis on vibraphone and marimba. blythe lays down this deep sound and wanders on the ground with his alto.

the concluding song, my son ra, a slow tempo solo, resonates richly with much of the songs that have gone before, blythe seems to compose for silence in the way he composes for instruments.

more magnetic than hypnotic. though, without a doubt, a hip motion."
