MY Favorite Album of 200(6-7?) – Lafayette Gilchrist and Hammid Drake – Live at the Vison Fest

Live at the Vision Festival 2006

This album from Lafayette Gilchrist and Hammid Drake is and has been one of my favorite albums ever since I first found it on e-music (doesn’t seem to be there any more) – Lafayette Gilchrist and Hammid Drake – Live at the Vison Fest 2006.   Definitely the first two tracks – The Shadow Knows What the Shadow Do and Black Sunshine – are standards in Gilchrist’s repertoire but in this setting with Drake’s masterful rhythm and textures they become so beautiful as to (imho) become part of the jazz lexicon…

I have always been super-into Gilchrist, though.  The way he blends so many different styles of jazz and funk is really something to hear.
