The worst interpretation of any movement of the A Love Supreme suite was
done by R&B vocalist Will Downing about 15 or 20 years ago with his
remake of "Acknowledgement".  He missed the point completely.  I cringed
when I heard it.

Yikes! remembering it now....  :-(

Fellow Jazzer's,

Here's my quick 2 cents on the Love Supreme disscussion. Michael Wolff
does a three minute plus rendition of A Love Supreme on his disc
Dangerous Vision / Artemis records that I really like alot. It's worth
checking out if you get a chance.

regards,

Russ

As a follow up to their critically acclaimed debut 'The Last Farewell',
the Los Angeles collective, Shapes, returns with an ambitious two-cd set
entitled, 'The Big Picture', and once again, they've teamed up with
Yellowjackets bassist and two-time Grammy winner, Jimmy Haslip as
producer.  Split along stylistic lines into two discs, the first disc is
an eclectic mix of groove-oriented material and the second, showcases
the band's more acoustic mainstream jazz sound. This shape-shifting
ensemble has managed to cover several bases while still retaining their
signature sound, forged in the unique chemistry of Tollak Ollestad's
chromatic and blues harmonica playing, recently featured on Al Jarreau's
current CD 'Accentuate The Positive' and Roger Burn's vibraphone,
marimba and piano work, recently featured on the Smash hit movie
'Sideways', alongside a band of stellar players and special guests
including Jimmy Haslip, fellow Yellowjackets Russell Ferrante and Robben
Ford along with valve trombonist Mike Fahn, Cannonball Adderley's
drummer, Roy McCurdy, vocalist Pauline Wilson (Seawind) accompanied by
Matt Catingub on alto and even a track featuring L.A. mainstays, the
Jack Mack and The Heart Attack Horns.
