I was refreshingly suprised the first time I heard this album. I had been bored with most of my music collection when I stumbled upon this "nugget of pure gold". What's even more exciting is when you find out more about the man himself. Gil Melle is a true original, still going strong. His art will surely last the test of time. I write this based on my somewhat worn vinyl copy of "Primitive Modern". I found it in a thrift store for 50 cents and have thanked the powers that be every day that I had such luck. As the quote above indicates, Gil Melle and his outfit were serious about rhythm and doing interesting things with rhythm. Listen, for instance, to "Ironworks."

Baritonist Gil Melle's recordings are usually a bit unusual and this CD reissue is no exception. Melle's nine compositions are performed by one of three sextet/septets featuring either Art Farmer, Kenny Dorham or Donald Byrd on trumpets, Hal McKusick or Phil Woods on alto, guitarist Joe Cinderella, bassist Vinnie Burke, drummer Ed Thigpen and sometimes either Julius Watkins on French horn or Don Butterfield on tuba. The charts are unpredictable and often dramatic, looking ahead toward a musical future that never occurred. Watkins takes solo honors during his three appearances.

Lou Mecca is one of the great jazz guitarists that came up through the late 40's and early 50's. At a time when players like Johnny Smith & Tal Farlow were setting the standards, it is a measure of Mecca's enormous guitar talent that he not only landed a recording contract with Blue Note, but also replaced Farlow in the Gil Melle Quartet. Indeed, his sensitive and insightful playing on the Melle Quartet sessions contributed much to the success of these historically important recordings. Mecca disappeared from the public eye for several years but, like Farlow, continued to play, albeit infrequently. THE LOU MECCA TRIO - BRIDGING THE GAP puts one in mind of the best of Johnny Smith & Tal Farlow recordings. Lou has it all covered. This CD confirms what a handful of enthusiast have always known, that Lou Mecca is a Jazz guitar great.

Eric Truffaz has covered a lot of ground - both literally and metaphorically - since releasing his first album on the Blue Note label in 1996. Recorded in several locations but cut to sound like a single concert, Face-a-Face reveals the success of this artist who, with consistency and determination, has travelled a long road to success that has been filled with detours, long stretches in the fast lane and occasional pit stops, but which has never veered away from the source of his originality and the happiness of his waking dream. For Truffaz, each concert is a chance to meet his public "face à face". And it's this exchange between musicians and their audiences - the source of his inspiration - that Truffaz has set out…
