Don Ellis: Three Classic Albums Plus (How Time Passes / New Ideas / Essence) (2CD)

Ref: AMSC1279

(UK Postage Free )


AVID Jazz continues its occasional Three Classic album plus series with a re-mastered 2CD release from Don Ellis complete with original artwork, liner notes and personnel details.
“How Time Passes”; “New Ideas”; “Essence”; plus 4 tracks featuring Don Ellis from the Charles Mingus album “Dynasty”
Three early albums from vastly under-rated trumpeter, composer and bandleader Don Ellis showing the direction he was to follow over the next fifteen years or so before his tragically early death at age, just 44! If you check out the names of the guys Don was playing with in the early sixties it will give you a clue as to where his music was heading. In New York, Don had met fellow jazz searchers like Charles Mingus, Eric Dolphy and George Russell. On our three selections you will hear him playing with a new breed of upcoming jazz men like Jaki Byard, Ron Carter, Charlie Persip, Al Francis, Paul Bley and Gary Peacock. And of course on “Dynasty” he can be heard alongside Mingus himself as well as Booker Ervin and the mighty John Handy”. Following a relatively quiet period, album wise after his first three releases, Don went on to a prolific and highly experimental and influential musical career which came to a sudden tragic end in 1978 following a heart attack.
