The invisible hand by Greg Osby ( Recording )
5 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On alto saxophonist Greg Osby's Invisible Hand , he embarks on a sonic excursion past the boundaries of time signatures, chord progressions, and prefigured tempos toward a universe of pure music--all the while joined by icons such as guitarist Jim Hall and pianist Andrew Hill. Bassist Scott Colley, saxophonist-flutist Gary Thomas and drummer Teri Lyne Carrington round out the band, demonstrating and helping define how solid Osby's own musical conception is. Osby shows the dual influence of Steve Coleman's M-BASE collective--where he made his creative home during the 1980s and '90s--and of Eric Dolphy, who worked with pianist Hill in the '60s. Hill's pointillism illuminates his enigmatic composition "Ashes," and his duets with Osby on both takes of "The Watcher" ring with a Debussy-like impressionism. Hall's hushed tones provide the right harmonic settings on "Sanctus" and the Latin-tinged "Who Needs Forever." Osby's sharp and flowing lines paint new algorithmic versions of Fats Waller's classic "Jitterbug Waltz" (a Dolphy favorite) and the standards "Indiana" and "Nature Boy." On those tracks Osby and company play the past and sound like the future. --Eugene Holley, Jr

Ce remarquable CD, le premier sous son nom dAntonio Sanchez, batteur overbooké sil en est, nous raconte une histoire en huit chapitres. Le premier, One For Antonio, met en scène un trio dont la vedette est Chick Corea, un employeur régulier de Sanchez. Son swing perlé fait merveille et les atours latin jazz du morceau quil a composé pour loccasion ravira tous ses admirateurs. Le deuxième, Did You Get It?, le quatrième (Challenge Within), le sixième (Greedy Silence) et le septième (un classique de Joe Henderson, Inner Urge) sont les plus captivants. Quatre premiers rôles ! Les deux Sanchez forment des binômes créatifs épatants : les baguettes dAntonio dansent avec celui de Chris Potter. Leurs tresses cuivrées font toute la singularité de ces quatre chapitres, les meilleurs du disque. Dans le cinquième, Ballade, Potter souffle sans son camarade. La tension et lattention retombent, comme dans le deuxième chapitre, Arena /Sand), où une autre guest star fait son apparition : Pat Metheny autre employeur régulier dAntonio. On le retrouve dans chapitre final, Solar, et il se lance dans une chouette impro sans filet en duo avec celui qui reste in fine le héros de ce CD, le fantastique Antonio
