Army Of The Pharaohs - Jedi Mind Tricks Presents The Best Of Army Of The Pharaohs (2016)

Army Of The Pharaohs - Jedi Mind Tricks Presents The Best Of Army Of The Pharaohs (2016)
Rap, Hip-Hop | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 02:15:28 | 312 MB
Label: Babygrande Records | Release Year: 2016

Previous Jedi Mind Tricks’ projects could be described as a touch obtuse. Comic book villainy, cemeteries and decapitations aren’t the stuff of lazy Sunday afternoons. But the official debut of Army of the Pharaohs, spearheaded by JMT’s Vinnie Paz, comes off as morbidity with a smile. The underground all-star collaboration includes 7L & Esoteric, Celph Titled, Apathy, Outerspace, Reef The Lost Cauze, Chief Kamachi, Des Devious, Faez One and King Syze. Instead of fantastical yarns about high-tech weaponry, there are meaningful stories about disappointment and broken homes. But The Torture Papers is far from a sentimental journey through the ghetto. The whimsical futurism still abounds, but it is matched with thought-provoking experiences that make this more than a niche record.

In 2008, DJ and globetrotter Gilles Peterson was approached by the melomaniac at the helm of Havana Cultura – an initiative to showcase and support Cuban creativity by Cuban rum maker Havana Club –, inviting him to Cuba to check out Havana’s underground music scene with a view to making an album. While some might associate Cuba simply with salsa or Buena Vista Social Club, there was a new generation of artists teeming with new sounds, waiting for an opportunity to reveal their talent to the world.

Thème de ce quatrième opus, le « Jazz Guitar » ! Dès la fin des années trente, les guitaristes peuvent enfin, dans les orchestres de jazz, grâce à l’amplification, jouer à part entière leur rôle de solistes, à armes égales avec les trompettistes, trombonistes, saxophonistes, et pianistes. Dans le premier opus on retrouve donc bien évidemment le Solo Flight de Charlie Christian qui constitue un modèle idéal que suivent, analysent et respectent encore aujourd’hui nombre de guitaristes ; Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Raney, Billy Bauer - que l’on peut écouter ici - lui doivent beaucoup…

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. Although John Lewis is listed as the leader (this album's alternate title is "John Lewis Presents Contemporary Music"), the pianist does not actually appear on this record and only contributed one piece ("Django"). On what is very much a Gunther Schuller project, Schuller composed "Abstraction" and was responsible for the adventurous three-part "Variants on a Theme of John Lewis (Django)" and the four-part "Variants on a Theme of Thelonious Monk (Criss-Cross)"; Jim Hall contributed "Piece for Guitar & Strings."
