Harper, Billy Quintet – “Live On Tour In The Far East” – [Steeplechase Productions]

felix   12/16/2015   CD, Jazz

Billy Harper Quintet, “Live on tour in the far east, Vol. 1,” was recorded in Pussan South Korea in 1991. The influence of John Coltrane is clear throughout. Check out the piece “Countdown,” Coltrane’s reharmonizing of Miles Davis’ “Tune Up”. SteepleChase, the record company that put out the album, is based in Denmark and is known for picking up jazz artists who lost their contracts with other labels. Indeed, Harper is considered by some as a “criminally” underrated musician. Listen to the album and decide. There’s alot to like there.
