Idris Muhammad 's House of the Rising Sun is a legendary soul-jazz album, and for good reason. First there's the fact that, Grady Tate notwithstanding, Idris Muhammad is easily the greatest of all soul-jazz drummers. Next, it is revealed that label boss and producer Creed Taylor was at his most inspired here, and wasn't afraid to err on the rhythm and blues side of the jazz equation. The material is top-notch, and David Matthewswho orchestrated and arranged this date with the exception of one track -- "Sudan" was written by Muhammad and Tom Harrelland Harrell arranged it -- was on fire.
As a bandleader, Muhammad is shockingly effective. Not because one could ever doubt his ability, but because of his reputation as one House Of The Rising Sun - Various - Summer In The City the great studio drummers House Of The Rising Sun - Various - Summer In The City Ответ - Лютая Месть!
- Король И Шут - Как В Старой Сказке. From the title track which opens the album, with Austin reaching the breaking point in her delivery, to the stunningly funky groove in Ashford and Simpson 's "Hard to Face the Music," to the minor key funk of the Chopin-adapted theme in "Theme for New York City," to "Sudan"'s triple-timed drums and killer Eastern-tinged hooks, and a read of the Meters ' "Hey Pocky A-Way," with Eric Gale 's dirty finger poppin' bass atop McCracken 's Collage - Raccolta Di Successi slide work, this is a steaming, no let-up album.
Add to this a gorgeous version of the Ary Barroso Brazilian jazz classic "Bahia," and you have the set for a classic jazz album.
But the complete disregard for the political correctness of "Jazz" itself, in order to get the deeply funky and soulful grooves across, is what makes this set so damn special and even spiritual in its inspiration. Jazz purists lost all credibility when they slagged this one off, caught as they were in tainted, even racist views of the past that made no allowances for jazz musicians to actually follow their time-honored tradition of mining the pop music of the day to extend the breadth and reach of jazz itself.
