^ Yes, I took an interest then lost it with Frisell too. This album, for instance, has some nice, subdued tracks, but only one in which he briefly breaks a sweat:-

Essential.
Been getting into his albums as a bandleader lately.
Some of it is as good as Coltrane's best albums. Sorry for the blasphemy.

The Law of Unassailabilty allows for that. It’s quantum physics for music fans. At the spooky distance of unassailabilty Coltrane cannot be equaled while at the same time Tyner can equal Coltrane. Classical statements which work for that which is assailable like a>b>c so therefore c<a don’t apply to the unassailable.

Tyner creates beautiful oceans of sound in those records. When he played with Coltrane he was the greatest pianist ever and he took shape as the most beautiful body of water ever known: the river. Then he was the greatest pianist ever taking place in the most beautiful body of water ever know: the ocean.

I love the way his playing opens up. He opened it up when he was supposed to and he focused it when he was supposed to.

Anyway, what you’re saying is not blasphemy because Tyner’s genius can’t be overstated.

Listened to Odyssey, a 1975 double album by a Norwegian guitarist called Terje Rypdal a few days ago. Good album.

Rabih Abou-Khalil - Bukra (1989)

The king of the oud. Criminally underrated artist & album.



Dimension - Fifth Dimension (1995)

Probably the most vigorous of the classic 80's/90's Japanese fusion bands, Dimension have over 30+ albums and their sound hasn't changed all that much since their start in '92, but 5th Dimension is an extremely strong release that stands out. Reminds me of all those great racing games I played in the Sega Genesis years but with a meatier sound palette.
