Harvie Swartz
Underneath It All
Gramavision (US) 1982
GR8202 (LP)
sleeve : VG+(CC, light wrinkle, some slightly stains.)
media : EX+/EX+(some slightly surface noises, still good condition.)

First leader album released in 1982 by American jazz bassist Harvie Swartz, who has played with Al Cohn, Zoot Sims, Thad Jones, Gil Evans and Lee Konitz, and features Ben Aranov (p), David Charles (p), David Charles (fh), Erik Friedlander (cello) and Peter Grant (dr). Although it is not well known at all, it is definitely a masterpiece. From the opening track A1, a very beautiful and delicate contemporary jazz with a high spirituality develops immediately, followed by the atmospheric deep jazz of A2, which spreads a mystic soundscape over the sound field. And the thrilling B1, its Latin/Brazilian flavour, and the beautiful piano of Ben Arnov, with its grain. Arnov's beautiful piano dances as fine-grained particles on B2, a wonderful performance with a sophisticated worldview similar to ECM's Scandinavian counterparts.

A1: Rainbow
B1: Firewalk
