Blythe, Arthur - Lenox Avenue Breakdown Lenox Avenue Breakdown
Jazz Used - LP JC 35638 Columbia
Scarce 1979 White Label Promo With Gold Promo Stamp On Back Jacket. Includes Two-Page Label Bio. “Given The Urban Title Of Alto Saxophonist Arthur Blythe's Debut Columbia Album, It's Quite A Shock When He And His Red-Hot Band Of Collaborators That Include James Blood Ulmer On Guitar, Bob Stewart On Tuba, Flutist James Newton, Bassist Cecil Mcbee, And Jack Dejohnette Open With The Decidedly Funky Latin Breaks On "Down San Diego Way." It's Not A Vamp And It's Not A Misleading Intro, The First Of Four Tracks Showcases Not Only The Deep Versatility Of The Rhythm Section, But Blythe's Own Gift As Both A Composer And As A Soloist. He States The Melody, Handing Off The Harmonics To Ulmer And Newton And Then Flies High Into The Face Of Its Chosen Changes, Allowing The Beat To Change Under Him Several Times Before Bringing Back A Theme And Letting Ulmer Solo. Blythe's Grounding In The Blues And In Modal Composition Guide Him On The Title Track; He And Newton Move Through Intervallic Shifts Of Chromatic Intensity And Spatial Columnar Structures, While Ulmer Builds A Middle Bridge To Both Ground And Fly From. But Blythe Is Not Content Here To Showcase The Extremes. On Both "Slidin' Through," His Exercise In Harmolodic Composition, And "Odessa," Blythe Provides Ample Proof Of His Wisdom As A Bandleader, Encouraging Solo And Rhythmic Interplay Between Different Groups Of Musicians Such As Mcbee And Blythe On The Former And Between Himself, Newton And Ulmer On The Latter As The Rhythm Section Winds It Out In Both Cases, Stretching The Narrow Envelope Into Something Far More Textured And Thematically Unified — Note The Ornette-Meets-Noir Ambience Of "Odessa." This Group Lays Like A Band That Had Been Together For Years, Not The Weeklong Period It Took Them To Rehearse And Create One Of Blythe's Masterpieces. Over 20 Years Later, Lenox Avenue Breakdown Still Sounds New And Different And Ranks Among The Three Finest Albums In His Catalog.” – Thom Jurek, All Music Guide... more details

Blythe, Arthur - Illusions Illusions
Jazz New - LP JC 36583 Columbia
1980 White Label Promo With Custom Inner Sleeve. Glossy, Unplayed Condition. Featues Fred Hopkins, Steve McCall, James Blood Ulmer, Abdul Wadud. Bob Stewart And Bobby Battle. “It Is Surprising How Artistically Productive Altoist Arthur Blythe Was During His Period On Columbia. Despite The Hype And Columbia's Reputation For Pressuring Artists To Play Mass-Appeal Music, Blythe's Recordings For That Label Are Inventive And Creative. For This, His Third Columbia Release, Blythe Uses Two Different Groups: An "In The Tradition" Quartet With Pianist John Hicks, Bassist Fred Hopkins, And Drummer Steve McCall, And A More Eccentric Unit With Guitarist James Blood Ulmer, Cellist Abdul Wadud, Tuba Player Bob Stewart, And Drummer Bobby Battle. No Matter The Setting, The Distinctive Alto Of Blythe Is Heard In Top Form On Six Of His Unusual Originals. It's Recommended.” Scott Yanow, All Music Guide.... more details
