Since I never seem to find time to update these pages anymore, I am going to guide those who stumble upon this blog to those who do a better job than I in sharing important info on great music. I am a huge fan of Inconstant Sol, and here's another link to a classic.
The Revered Frank Wright is, in my opinion, one of the greatest tenor sax players of all time. He's right up there with Coltrane and Ayler. He is in as high of regard as these masters as far as those that are in the know are concerned; but those that are in the know are few considering the fact that these masters could be used in comparison to Rev. Wright. He did share the stage with John Coltrane in the 60's. Alan Silva, Bobby Few, and Muhammed Ali (brother of Rasheid, from Coltrane's ensembles) were at the core of his personell on his recordings with his band, "Center of the World." He worked with the best of the best, from Reggie Workman to Cecil Taylor, form William Parker to Eddie Jefferson. This album is fantastic cause you can hear all four members of Center of the World making solo and duet statements with one another. Should I mention its also one of those ultra-rare free jazz gems? It is. It is also not for the faint of heart.
jazz music in its entirety (according to Mikah Sykes): we play everything from its earliest forms at the turn of the century up through its current breathtaking renaissance - hence the name: THE CHANGING SAME. we focus on only the best sounds, the best musicians, the game-changing masters, and the influential figures that aren't household names (the latter of which are mostly all of the above, as well as mostly all we'll play), all of its sub-genres (eventually), and all of its best sounds you'll rarely hear anywhere else on the radio. the selections featured on this broadcast are not only some of the the highest forms of musical achievement, but also some of the most important musics the world has produced in the last 100 years. THE CHANGING SAME is particularly interested in the neurological effects of the spiritual aspects of jazz communication, it's role in civil rights, and it's contributions to the world of fine art and world peace. SPACE IS THE PLACE.
