Elmo Hope Ensemble / Elmo Hope - Sounds from Rikers Island flac mp3
Ambitious Complex Elegant Refined Sophisticated. Elmo Hope Ensemble, Elmo Hope. Sounds from Rikers Island. This 1963 session assembled by composer Sid Frey, pianist and composer Elmo Hope, and vibist Walt Dickerson (who doesn't appear on the record) is a blowing date centered around the notion of drug addiction and hopelessness for the addict/slave musician who ends up in places like Rikers Island. As a cultural and social critique, it fails other than in its liner notes. As a musical document, it is an overwhelming success. Hope surrounds himself with musicians whose reputations are now legendary: Philly Joe Jones, John Gilmore, Ronnie Boykins, Lawrence Jackson, and Freddie Douglas.
