Ulmer, James “Blood” – “Revealing” – [In & Out Records]
2010 reissue of this 1977 all-instrumental recording – James “Blood” Ulmer’s first release as a lead. Ulmer’s simultaneous jazz, blues, and free sensibilities (Ulmer was the first electric guitarist to tour with Ornette Coleman) meet here – brilliant, original work on guitar. Fine playing from McBee on bass, Adams on sax, and Hammond on drums – wonderful compositions by Ulmer. This is very special.
