- knoel scott: bebop and beyond
(2017, cd, usa expubidence publishing)
Last December, I mentioned Knoel Scott's "Live In Alaska" album. Classic jazz. A real treat.
Today, I'd like to mention "Bebop And Beyond", Knoel's second release.
Recorded live in Philly, "Bebop And Beyond" offers 5 original bebop tracks. The compositions were written and produced by Knoel Scott and were performed by Knoel (tenor sax) plus Eddie Jones (drums), Dr. Guy Ramsey (electric piano), Fahir Kendall (bass) and Cecil Taylor (trumpet).
Did I mention that the disc contains a track entitled 'Sun Ra'?
Great tunes. Amazing improvisations. Bebop at its best.
