Bobby Previte Get 'em While They Got 'em
Bob Burnett: I just noticed that c60 fave Downtown Music Gallery has gotten together with composer/percussionist Bobby Previte to put up for sale a large offering of Previte's work. Apparently this stack of discs are from Previte's personal holdings and contain several out-of-print selections from the '90s Gramavision and Enja label work he did. I highly suggest his Weather Clear Track Fast group; an intense and skilled septet (including Robin Eubanks, Marty Ehrlich, Don Byron) with abundant skills in improvisation, complex rhythm and happening melodies. It's downtown NYC meets Ellington. Go to DMG's site and delve into the list of offerings.
