Trifolium Jazz! (Jazz Week 2)

This week's gorgeous jazz vista is brought to you by the one, the only, Trifolium! (He must be onna them four-leafers cause we are LUCKY to have him!) Posting here so as not to interrupt the sanctity of Trif's March Madness lists, but album descriptions are his. Let's fucking get to it, couple jazzy-ass cuts from 1972, one carved from a live monolith, one a classic side-A, side-B and out brevity, just long enough to get you vibrating for the revolution. J/
1Bill Evans
Live In Paris 1972 Vol 3


1972 (1988 for the release date) - There's something with these three Live in Paris 1972 records that I absolutely adore. Bill's ultra organic, smooth, heartfelt playing, those amazing drums by legendary Marty Morell (an underrated drummer for sure! so tasteful and so quiet but always interesting), and the lovely warm and melodious bass by Eddie Gomez. And all of that recorded in such high quality. Man. They make it sound effortless. Like it's just flowing out of them. These three volumes are an incredible row of Jazz Classics for me.

2Fela Kuti
Shakara


1972 - And in that same year, afrobeat mastermind Fela Kuti released two wonderful records that are so full of movement and groove as to make it impossible to sit still while listening to them. I think it's interesting to compare Shakara with the Live In Paris record, because those two feature completely different yet strikingly similar directions in jazz, the one being very much Western, the other being very much African, the one being pretty bare-bones and compact, the other being a group effort that bursts from the seems with joy. What is clear to me, however, is that both of these artists are geniuses, and both of these records connect on a deep level. [Ed. Note: Fuckin' FELAAAAAAA]
