recording of blues-based jam rock. The
ensemble seamlessly dips into comfortable
Black Crowes territory in sound and flavor
with "What Is Home" and "Wiser Time."
They cover songs by War, Delaney &
Bonnie, and Pink Floyd. Drummer Joe
Magistro and guitarist Nico Bereciartua
lay down spectacular padding and soulful
finesse throughout, as "Omission" sets the
tone for the band's sound in true Crowes
fashion. Their cover of Bobby Hutcherson's
modal jam "Goin' Down South" and War's
"War Drums" might be perceived as filler,
but jam bands improvise without apology.
They crank out the soul on Bob Marley's
"Time Will Tell" and "Glad And Sorry" by
the Faces. Ford wields serious rock tones
throughout while supplying tasty, fat-free
solos and substantive fills.
Moving beyond '60s and '70s rock influences, the Magpie Salute continues to evolve
the Black Crowes with a familiar sound and
room to wail. - OJ

Jimmy Raney

Santana/ Isleys:Sam Erickson.

Visits Paris

Jimmy Raney was
on the cutting edge
in February of 1954.
The bebop pioneer,
known for his work
as a member of Woody Herman's Second
Herd, had gained even greater stature for
his early '50s recordings with tenor sax great
Stan Getz for the Roost label. Back in Paris
after touring with vibraphone legend Red
Norvo, Raney, who'd just topped a poll in the
French magazine Le Jazz Hot, took advantage
of time off to record an LP with five French
musicians, demonstrating the inventive passion and smoothness he showed with Getz.
The original French LP, released in 1958,
has been faithfully reproduced on vinyl by
Nashville-based Modern Harmonic.
Most of the repertoire was predictable,
yet Raney's confident ingenuity dominated
everything, beginning with his minor-key
original "Tres Chouette." He and the others,
most notably tenor sax man Bobby Jaspar,
ripped through a set heavy on swing and pop
favorites including "Dinah," "Have You Met
Miss Jones," "Love For Sale," and "Cherokee."
Raney demonstrated his command of
ballads on "Everything Happens To Me"
and "What's New," playing counterpoint
with Jaspar on "Someone To Watch Over
Me," as he did on the upbeat "Fascinating
Rhythm."
Now, 63 years later, Visits Paris retains all
its original fire. - RK

LOVE, PEACE -
AND SOUL!

E

rnie Isley was a hero
to a generation of
young, bell-bottomclad guitarists who wore
afros and enveloped
themselves in soul crooners and the funkiness
that caused involuntary
dancing. Positioned in
one of the greatest R&B
bands - the Isley Brothers - he brought soaring,
fuzz-saturated lines and
beautiful ornamentation
to rapture-inducing soul
music. Albums such as 3
+ 3, The Heat Is On, and
Harvest For The World
uplifted the masses with
conscious lyrics, irresistible grooves, and the
heavenly pipes of brother
Ronald.
Conversely, Carlos
Santana is the father
of Latin rock. Say what
you will about his lean
guitar vocabulary, his
sonic thumbprint has been
recognizable for more than
40 years thanks to a style
that always put soulful
melodies first while effortlessly traversing blues,
pop, rock, and fusion. His
history of employing the
philosophies of peace and
unity into contrived, yet

super-accessible product
netting millions of dollars
may turn off critics, but
he funds passion projects
that lack mass appeal.
Now, Power Of Peace
combines the talents of
Ronald and Ernie Isley
with Carlos and wife,
drummer extraordinaire

The Isley Brothers &
Santana
Power Of Peace

Cindy Blackman. It's a
substantive soul-rock
record with the spotlight
squarely on Santana and
Ronald Isley. It stands
upon the songwriting
talents of Stevie Wonder,
Curtis Mayfield, Marvin
Gaye, Burt Bacharach,
and Willie Dixon as
a means to inspire.
Produced by Santana,
he gets assistance from

a small legion of session
cats including keyboard
guru Greg Phillinganes.
The album rocks with
"Are You Ready" and
"Total Destruction To Your
Mind." Santana's thickbut-elegant tone scorches
over the first track while
Ernie drops in for the
second, eventually ending
in a fiery duel. Ernie
kills with his signature
fuzz/Uni-Vibe recipe.
Ernie plays on four of
the 13 tracks, but when
he gets to bat, he hits it
out of the park. He plays
classy rhythms on Billie
Holiday's "God Bless The
Child," and takes Carlos
to school on "Body Talk"
and "I Just Want To
Make Love To You" with
blazing soul and intensity.
Ronald Isley is a national treasure. His maturity
mixed with his patented
sultry vocalizations can
still make women swoon
as on "Gypsy Woman,"
"What The World Needs
Now Is Love Sweet Love,"
and "Mercy Mercy Me
(The Ecology)." Santana
has never sounded better.
He utilizes a diversity
of sounds and melodic
inventions to scorch, as
well as caress.
Power Of Peace is a
beautiful album brimming
with positive messages,
lush musicality, and
love. - Oscar Jordan
