1993 Germain Issue on 180G 2LP =  masterpiece of covers and originals. One of the best Jazz albums from the nineties=To get an idea, try the beautiful hymnal Don Pullen composition Ah, George, We Hardly Knew Ya in 6/4ths that features Pullen on the acoustic piano and Arthur Blythe with a fabulous solo on his alto saxophone.

include several staples of the modern jazz repertoire, Oliver Nelson's "Stolen Moments," Benny Golson's "Stablemates" (arranged for the group by Golson himself), "Walkin'", and Pullen's paean to his dead partner George Adams, "Ah, George, We Hardly Knew Ya'," which is done in quartet with the usual fine piano work of Pullen and a keening solo by Arthur Blythe on alto sax. The group also plays "Night Train," a tune I remember dancing to -King Curtis's version!- in high school in the early fifties. The players on this album all play better than good -no surprise, given their credentials--but it is as much an arrangers' album as a players' album, with fine arrangements by several members of the group

To get an idea, try the beautiful hymnal Don Pullen composition Ah, George, We Hardly Knew Ya in 6/4ths that features Pullen on the acoustic piano and Arthur Blythe with a fabulous solo on his alto saxophone.

One of the best Jazz albums from the nineties.

Notes
Recorded December 14th & 15th, 1992 at Sound Studios Leyh, Heidelberg Germany
Mixed February 15th & 16th, 1993

Arthur Blythe, Nathan Davis, Chico Freeman, Sam Rivers, Don Pullen, Santi Debriano, Idris Muhammad got together, and they called themselves "Roots". Their album Stablemates is a solid all-star, all-acoustic, no fuss, album that is bound to get overlooked in the vast world of the recording industry. A rather obscure German Jazz label (In 'n Out Records) that already disappeared, released it in 1993, after the tracks had been recorded in December 1992 in Heidelberg, Germany, with occasional support by Helmut Nieberle and Helmut Kagerer on semi-acoustic guitar. It's 71 minutes of fine, lean, diverse, well-hung Jazz.
