Recording Date: 1974


       Cecil McBee 个人创作历程重要作品。Cecil McBee 在作曲编曲上的优势完全展现出来。作品的核心就是Mutima。当然这不是一张让人愉悦得起舞的作品。

       作品的完整性得益于全体乐手的完美表现。乐手里相对知名的是客串的萨克斯George Adams,其他的乐手生涯并不光鲜。年轻稚嫩的Dee Dee Bridgewater,跑龙套的Flute 手Art Webb ,号手Tex Allen自己的挂名作品要远到20年后。
       首轨就是长达11分钟的弦乐,悲伤的弦乐......
       第三轨是Tex Allen的表现实在是出奇的好,Cecil McBee的技术保证了全曲的紧凑结构,两把管子Allen Braufman、George Adams轮番上阵。Onaje Allan Gumbs迷幻色彩的钢琴....
       标题曲Mutima终于有了非洲的节奏调调,宛若非洲蜿蜒河流滋养下的草原早晨。
       结尾曲出人意料的Funk式手法完全就是彩蛋的效果。
   
      每个人都有属于自己的黑色故事,无论是寻根和探索。Cecil McBee 用完整的故事性让这张作品无论放到任何时代都不会过时。

      A landmark recording in early creative improvised modern music, bassist Cecil McBee's recording for the Strata East label is an important document introducing him as a leader from the international jazz-based scene in New York City via his native Tulsa, OK and following a brief mid-'60s stint in Detroit. McBee as a pure musician has staggering technique, rich harmonic ideas, and an indefatigable swing, but it is as a composer that he is set apart from other musicians of this mid-'70s era. "Life Waves" is a stunning piece of composed and improvised music, with a brief clarion horn section setting off McBee's chordal strumming and harp bop drive. Trumpeter Tex Allen's brash lines, the incendiary tenor saxophonist George Adams, and more thoughtful alto saxophonist Allen Braufman dig into hefty but contrasting solos, while drummer Jimmy Hopps stokes the coals. The other premier piece, "Mutima," has a soaring longer melody switching on and off onto a samba palate that is pretty, beautiful, and much more introspective than other wild and woolly cuts. The legendary but underrecognized flutist Art Webb shines on the floaty free "A Feeling,' and the atypical but wholly contemporized "Tulsa Black," a portent to the music that would be made later in this time period by Sonny Fortune, and featuring the wah-wah electric bass guitar work of Cecil McBee, Jr. The two-minute "Voice of the Seventh Angel" sports the disparity of a complex arrangement alongside the beautiful singing of a young Dee Dee Bridgewater, while the marathon "From Within" has McBee performing solo, but overdubbed on two basses in opposite stereo channels, using serene long-toned arco and static pizzicato in arresting sounds that meld into a bridge squawk reminiscent of the saxophone playing of bandmate Adams. In retrospect, McBee's great career was ostensibly launched well before this recording, having worked with prominently with Charles Lloyd, Alice Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, Yusef Lateef, Charles Tolliver, and countless others. "Mutima" (translated as "unseen forces") undoubtedly solidified his stature and brilliance as a major player.  AMG
