This looks very juicy indeed - thanks!

leffe said...

Very nice indeed!
This album is to my taste, without being ingratiating, so much easier to enjoy compared to some of the stuff that Lenny White and friends did at the time.
It’s so alive; somewhat unpredictable and not really dated like some of the stuff from the 70s apart from the sound maybe, which on the other hand could be the work of some retro producer, a year or two ago and - without those endless solos by overconfident jazz rockers when, what one really wants is to groove!
Great share, thanks!

This is absolutely knocked-out! Harrell has become more and more appreciated / recognized over the years -- nice to hear this early material, a great recording all the way 'round. Thanks for sharing!

First heard Tom on "Paunetto's Point" (grammy nominated Latin) and also saw him at tge Vanguard with Horace.. wow he's always right.. Thanks!!!

I first encountered Tom when he was playing with Treasure Island, with Arnie Lawrence, Abdullah, Badal Roy and others. I was fortunate to have lived near the legendary Richard's Lounge in Lakewood, NJ during the seventies and spent every weekend there listening to the best of live jazz. Zamcheck, Catalyst, Treasure Island, Jack Dejohnette, so many, so many. Thanks for posting this.

Hanimex 3000 said...

a monument! Harrell's play is as fluid as with Azteca.
I noticed that an alternate version of the first track "on the roof" figures as a bonus on Idris Muhammad's "House of the Rising Sun" CD reissue (tr. 7 "Pipe Stem")

I was also a Richard' Lounge regular in the 79s - that was a Monster club, for sure.

Tom was excellent, and still listen to his tunes for all these decades after.

Richard Stein - I hope you are still with us. 135 seats never sounded so good. I'll have a Rush with Pickle, please.
