Stanley Cowell - New World

I just recently returned from a quick weekend trip to New York City where I spent much of my time diggin' for records at the numerous shops around the city. I came away with many good finds including the album I'm featuring today which is Stanley Cowell's 1981 hard-to-find New World LP. This record which blends modal tones with an overall soul-jazz vibe features a number of solid tracks including "Come Sunday", "Island of Haitoo", "I'm Trying to Find a Way", and the cosmic jazz gem "El Space-O". Cowell is backed by a number jazz heavy-weights including Eddie Henderson (trumpet), Cecil McBee (bass), Roy Haynes (drums), Kenneth Nash (additional percussion) and others. Overall, another solid release from one of jazz music's most innovative jazz pianists.
