Humair, Daniel – “Drumo Vocalo ” – [Fwm Music]
Daniel Humair was born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1938, but has been a fixture on the French jazz scene since the late 50???s, playing with American expatriates, such as Chet Baker, Kenny Dorham, Oscar Pettiford and Anthony Braxton and French legends, like Stephane Grappelli and Jean-Luc Ponty. He has also appeared on many soundtrack albums, including 1972???s ???Last Tango in Paris???.
Little information is available about his solo release, ???Drum Vocalo???. It may or may not have been originally released in 1970 or 1974 (depending on the source). I’d wager on ’70, though. It may or may not be soundtrack music, as the subtitle ???Drums for Screen No. 1??? would imply. It is a very hip and cool record, however, of that there???s no doubt in my mind. Drums, scatting, recording and tape effects are incorporated into 16 very different tracks that run the gamut from jump blues to psychedelic workouts.
Every track is in the 2-minute range and every track is worth a spin, so roll the dice, see where it lands and let it ride.
