Knit Classics Sampler [coll] – [Knitting Factory Records]

Collections like this are tantalizing and/or
frustrating. Certainly a ton of history, and
a lot of promise here — the lead track revs
duel-fueled electric bass under Vernon Reid
ripping riffs, then boom it’s a countrified
McLaughlin donning Mingus “‘bye Pork Pie Hat”
Fred Hopkins’ serves a sterling, scraping
anchor to David Murray and Olu Dara. Milt
Jackson gets some vibes flying, Rashied Ali
helps “Trane” Marvin Blackman…and then
Joe Lee Wilson soulfully vocalizes to
“Blue Trane”. Primal primer.
