MICHAL COCHRANE QUINTET - ELEMENTS



















Michael Cochrane Quintet for Soul Note Italy from 1985.

What a cracker - dont let anyone tell you that the 80s were a total wasteland for jazz.
Chock full of Modal, Waltz, Bossa, Bop, Jazz Dancers .... it's all here and it's all good !
All Killer No Filler.

I had the chance to meet Michael recently through my school. He is a super swell guy, and he talked to me for awhile. I know he played with Hannibal a lot, and so it was neat to meet one of those seemingly far-distant jazzmen.

Thanks for this.

Of course the 80s weren't a wasteland - there was so much jazz fusion coming out of Japan ONLY KIDDING

Looking forward to it. You seem in a modal-bop mood recently. All good.

"Proof of the Pudding" was the tune back in the day remember that little tit g.Peterson spinning it out.

Mr. Bacoso, I am very curious as to what program you use to rip vinyl. I would like to begin ripping my collection.
