Farrah, Shamek - First Impressions First Impressions
Jazz Used - LP SES 7412 Strata East
Beautiful And Deadly Rare 1974 Original. Farrah, Alto Sax; Norman Person, Trumpet; Sonelius Smith, Piano; Milton Suggs, Bass; Ron Warwell, Drums; Calvert 'Bo' Satterwhite, Conga; Kenny Harper, Percussion; Kasa Mu-Barak Allah, Piano (Side 1); Clay Herndon, Drums (Side 1). “Recorded With Two Slightly Different Ensembles But Consistent In Style: Largely Dark, Minor-Mode Pieces With A Drone Implied Or Explicit And Executed With Plenty Of Edge. The Playing Is Chunky, Heavy, And Group-Minded; Farrah Emits A Glorious Wail On Alto Sax That Takes The Lead On Most Cuts But Still Leaves Plenty Of Elbow Room For Everybody Else. The Most “Out” Cut Is The Opener, Meterologically Tuned (Titled Perhaps For The Bracingly Out-Of-Tune Trumpet & Sax On The Intro & Outro Unison Melodies), Skirling Horns And Percussive Piano And A Rhythm That Moves In And Out Of Focus Throughout; While The Album Closer, First Impressions, Hovers Like Fog Above A Loping Bassline Digging A Moody Jazz-Funk Furrow So Deep It’s Hard To See Up Over The Edge (No Surprise It Was Sampled By Tribe Called Quest Some Years Back).” Quoted From Orgy In Rhythm.... more details
