Have you heard it? Like it? Recommend?
I don't know anything by Mr. Brendle, but if it's worth a shot...
I haven't heard this record yet, but I've heard others (which feature Frank Kimbrough as well). Ron's a great player, his website should have links to soundfiles.
I met Ron about 20 years ago at the Charlie Haden masterclass at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, we got to hang out and play a lot. The music is well worth checking out.
Thanks, I will.
FYI, I ordered 'Photograph' just now. Heard bits of 'ramblin' and 'passin by'. Mucho bueno, if the rest of the CD is like this, I say bonus!
Rons a great guy, He lives in my city and I have had a lesson or two from him.
Hey Ed, you out there?
I've listened to this a bunch of times now and dig it quite a bit. Ramblin' is my favorite right now, very funky, what a great feel with the minimal instrumentation. Sometimes it's hard to hear during Ron's soloing, I don't know if it's the recording or my system.
I worked outside last Saturday and the cd went around 3 times before i was done. Mr. Kimbrough on piano is brilliant, what a wonderful player, just fabulous voicings and ideas.
Thanks for letting us know about the recording.
Yeah, I'm around.
Vis a vis the "low" volume on bass solos, there are a lot of things at play. But it may be, depending on how much straight ahead jazz type music you listen to, the bass "sits" in a different place in this music as opposed to a lot of pop/rock etc. I haven't heard Ron in person in about 20 years, but my best recollection is that he was getting a bigger sound than me.
Frank Kimbrough is indeed bad.
I have too little of this kind of music. Care to suggest anything else in this vein?
I really like the funky types of tunes with this or similar instrumentation.
Just ordered "Photograph" (and "Here") from CDBaby -
Ed, thanks for the "heads-up"
Here's another one...
in JAZZTIMES, no less.
Ya gotta love the tag line, "...offers outstanding, unpredictable music."
