"Human blockhead" - NOJO with Sam Rivers (City of neighbourhoods)
"Despite impending doom" - Book Lily Dead Posie (Book Lily Dead Posie)
"Bob's place" - Freddie Hubbard (Artistry of Freddie Hubbard)

"7-2-3 drum solo" - Tyler Hornby (Shadows of a brighter day)
"Atlantic rising" - Sunship Ensemble (Ready or not 2)
"Mother of the future" - Bemeber Segue (Kings of jazz)

The star of this show, in some ways, is Sam Rivers. I inadvertantly played him twice, once with NOJO ("Human blockhead") and once as a member of Miles Davis' group on the Miles in Tokyo recording ("So what"). On this last one, Rivers' solo is great but he definitely stands out (or apart); I guess this is why he didn't last too long as part of the Davis ensemble at that time.

I was pleased to be able to fit in the lengthy "Hum-Allah etc." by Pharoah Sanders, yodelling and all.
