    is arguable that the history of the Jews in this century has produced one of the most richly rewarding periods of culture in Jewish history Yet this fact is somehow kept neatly hidden WHAT Compare Philip Roth to Sholem Aleichem Kafka to Moses de leon Walty Benjamin to Rashi Wittegenstein to Spinoza Steve Reich to Felix Mendelssohn Allen Ginsberg to Yehuda Helevi Einstein to Nostradamus Lenny Bruce to Hillel Burt Bacharach is such a name A traiblazer A questioner An unbridled genius More than a great tunesmith he s a conduction a pianist and a singer a bold arranger with an original vision and sharp ear for detail a brilliant producer and a sensitive collabrator Bacharach s songs explode the expectations of what a popular song is supposed to be Advanced harmonies and chord changes with unexpected turnarounds and modulations unusual changing time signatures and rhythmic twists often in uneven numbers of bars But he makes it all sound so natural you can t get it out of your head of stop whistling it Maddeningly complex sometimes deceptively simple these are more than just great pop songs these are deep explorations of the materials of music and should be studied

    and me I said Chip if you could get it together I d love to do it Because I love Charlie Haden and I like Bill Frisell So we got together totally unrehearsed and went into the studio and made Going Back Home Amazon com So that was a set it up and go session Baker Yeah And that s the difference between that band and the Denver Quintet to Octet DJQ2O The DJQ2O has been going for four years The lineups vary from a quartet to a quintet a sextet a septet or an octet We have that range of color And Ron Miles and I write stuff for the band It s the best band that I ve ever played with Amazon com You attract some great younger jazz stars like James Carter on 1999 s Coward of the County and Bela Fleck on Falling Off the Roof and others How does playing with those guys compare with your Denver based band Baker It s no different at all We re jazz players We play jazz Amazon com On Coward Ron Miles writes some strenuous tunes Baker When I saw the part for Jesus Loves Me I went Jesus Christ Ron This is never going to work However on playing it it did work and that shows where Ron is coming from that he can write something with so many different time signatures in it and yet it swings from top to bottom Amazon com If the Denver band were in New York would it be working constantly wowing crowds Baker We played New York in 1998 and blew everybody away which is how we got to do the record because my record company that s the first time they heard the band I ve been telling them for years I ve got this band and we finally came to New York and our record company heard it So we ve already been in New York and we blew New York totally away This band live is frightening Absolutely frightening I mean we did Coward of the County in two days It s live on the record It s straight onto two track No overdubs no multitracks Amazon com You talk in the liner notes about your drum family Art Blakey Elvin Jones Max Roach and Phil Seaman How did they influence you Baker Phil Seaman was the greatest drummer ever to come out of Europe and he was almost a godlike person to me And I think it was in 1960 Tubby Hayes the tenor sax player heard me playing an all nighter at the Flamingo and ran up the road to where Phil was at Ronnie Scott s club and told Phil to come down and hear the drummer I was unaware that he was there till I got off the stage to be confronted by God And I went back to his place and we spent all night listening to African records Amazon com And

    in this Fred Hersh Bill Frisell musical merger shares some of the blame for it s weaknesses Hersch uses occasional brittle dissonance and some Monkisms in his mostly failed attempt to avoid the stylistic domination of Bill Evans And Frisell loses his distinctiveness on this type of material It s to his credit however that he wisely shuns much of the twangy thing that makes up his style it just wouldn t have worked the way things are set up here This collection of standards a couple of jazz classics and a widely know Brazilian work is most effective on It Might Be Spring Softly as in a Morning Sunrise Blue Monk My Little Suede Shoes and in especially cogent fashion Yesterdays On the aforementioned tunes thers a meeting of the minds within largely lyrical frameworks as well as inspired intersecting lines Things go less well on Someday My Prince Will Come What is This Thing Called Love and particularly I Got Rhythm where a certain corniness is allowed to enter Perhaps what Hersch and Frisell should have done was to work largely with original tunes then really throw into the mix a combination of their stylistic differences Let Frisell
