MultiKulti Review:

It's obvious right from the title that Multikulti is another of Don Cherry's trademark fusions of jazz and world music...

MultiKulti Review:

It's obvious right from the title that Multikulti is another of Don Cherry's trademark fusions of jazz and world music, this time around with a heavy African influence. Cherry is joined on several tracks by members of multi-instrumentalist Peter Apfelbaum's Hieroglyphics Ensemble (plus the full band on "Until the Rain Comes" and "Divinity-Tree"), and their shared affinity for African music is what produces most of the album's best moments. (Listeners who prefer Cherry in a stricter jazz context are hereby warned.) The percolating, polyrhythmic grooves of "Dedication to Thomas Mapfumo," "Until the Rain Comes" (parts of it, anyway), "Divinity-Tree," and "Rhumba Multikulti" make for an infectious celebration of pan-cultural awareness that fully lives up to the promise of the album's title. Other highlights include the spare bounce of "Birdboy" and the more traditional free bop of "Pettiford Bridge." There are a few unfortunate indulgences, however. The brief instrumental sketches that punctuate the album actually detract from the flow and consistency, and if you've never been a fan of poetry recitations over jazz backing, the ones here won't change your mind. A few cuts just don't quite go anywhere, and at 12 minutes, "Until the Rain Comes" -- despite some undeniably great sections -- just starts to meander after a while. There's definitely enough good music here to make Multikulti worthwhile for fans of Cherry's world fusion explorations, but it isn't quite consistent enough to become essential. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide

Sardo,

I found your site through your posts on CIA. You reference a site "Jazz Club" in that post. Well, suffice it to be said, any site that annoys Rab Hines is a site I'd like to know more about. Thanks in advance.

what's the deal with the anti-Rab sentiments? He gets bashed a lot but I've never had a problem with him. Can I get a civil answer? thanks Bill

Sardo said...

I had with Rab only one problem. Rab want to be a censor and deleted some of my comments with my links, because they was posted before on jazz-club.nnm.ru. He hates those people, but it's not my business. I have friends also on this site. It's all.

I truly appreciate your well-written reviews. I love your choice of albums, and... of course, I appreciate access to the music. Many, many thanks, Sardo!

And yes, what ABOUT Russian jazz? I know almost nothing about it...and I noticed @upkerry14's question. (Don't expect an answer; it's a huge subject--unless you have one or two favorite musicians/groups I could explore).

Again, thank you! http://blip.fm/avivamagnolia

Some info & links for Aviva Gabriel and for everybody who love, or want to know more about Russian Jazz.

Hi upkerry14,

Yes, "you" never had a problem with "Hines" because he is madly in "love" with Brrruuno.

He got revealed as being an anal stalker, and he is now on the run.

Best,
