JOE FARRELL - OUTBACK




















A killer set from 1971 featuring Joe Farrell one of the 70s greatest reed players, and an always-exciting talent who was one of the first artists to really use the extended CTI format to break into a whole new level. The set's a drawn-out quintet side, with Chick Corea on electric piano, Buster Williams on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, and Airto on percussion. Farrell was playing with Jones at the time, and the album's got some of their strong choppy reed/percussion interplay. Tracks are all long and allow the players to stretch out and take advantage of the CTI approach to sound without the customary string sweetening .

This is a great record. I've always felt is was highly overlooked, as is most of Joe Farrell's output. Hopefully people will check it out.

Here's a rip from the pricey Japanese cd (sorry, only 192kps):
