The invisible hand by Greg Osby( Recording )

6 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 438 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
