IDRIS MUHAMMED: KABSHA 180 gram LP x 1  standard sleeve

LABEL: THERESA

CAT NO. TR110

Re-mastering by: Ray Staff at Air Mastering, Lyndhurst Hall, London

 

This little-known album by New Orleans-born drummer Idris Muhammad (1939-2014) was originally recorded for THERESA at Rudy Van Gelder's studio in New Jersey on September 12, 1980 with George Coleman & Pharoah Sanders on tenor saxophones & Ray Drummond on bass.

The six powerful tracks include originals from Muhammad & Drummond and an impressive version of Billy Eckstine's 'I Want To Talk About You' featuring Sanders.

'Kabsha', which is dedicated to Muhammad's youngest daughter, is recommended to anyone who appreciates inventive and passionate modern jazz.

 

Drummer Idris Muhammad's strongest jazz date as a leader. Muhammad, who had often been heard in funky or more commercial settings, really excels in this sparse setting, showing off what he learned from hearing bands in his native New Orleans. In addition, both the underrated Coleman and Sanders are heard in top form, stretching out on originals, basic pieces, and "I Want to Talk About You" (during which Sanders lets out a few trademark screams so everyone knows that he is not John Coltrane). Highly recommended.                                    Scott Yanow/AMG
