Poly-Currents (Tone Poet): Vinyl LP4526216
Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Label: Blue Note
Release Date: 5th January
Something very earthly about this post-bop drummer's outing from legendary Elvin Jones. So much space, such a blend of drumming styles and bringing in additional forms of percussion give this the feel of a jazz record more at one with nature than the club. One of the best new Tone Poet releases.
After two spare trio outings for Blue Note, drummer Elvin Jones expanded his ensemble with additional woodwinds & percussion on his unfettered 1969 post-bop exploration Poly-Currents while maintaining spacious realms for the musicians to delve into on modal originals like ‘Agenda’, ‘Agappe Love’, and ‘Whew’. This stereo Tone Poet Vinyl Edition was produced by Joe Harley, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original analog master tapes, pressed on 180g vinyl at RTI, and packaged in a deluxe tip-on jacket.
