Description

The professional collaborations of Jeremy Steig & Eddie Gomez started at first of the 60s. The protagonists not only viewed themselves as pioneers: We made up our minds that we founded jazz rock. Naturally fifty other people came to the same conclusion. They’re still playing with one another. Jazz. If the combination of flutes and bass is not itself something unusual for Steig and Gomez’ historical perspective, it was once something more for the promoters, audience and producers. And an album such as Music for Flute & Double-Bass was once an absolute novelty. Even as Steig gathers three members of the flute family, Gomez also confined himself to his favorites and presents three pieces of his instrumental belongings: a German bass piece from the 30s, a Czechoslovakian piece from the turn of the century and a Dutch piece from 1700. Fourteen months after Music for Flute & Double-Bass was once released the duo went into the studio once again. This time with harmonic accompaniment: Mike Nock on piano and on guitar the New York-based Austrian Karl Ratzer who had formed a band in 1977 with Steig and Gomez. They were also rhythmically supported by Steve Gadd, Jack DeJohnette, Nana Vasconcelos and Ray Barretto. Despite the fact that one thinks about a touch of green and ethno with the album titleRainforest, Steig uses beside new technologies and electronic tools also non-European stylistic elements that help expand the sound and the spectrum of expression. The fusion with non-western idioms was once in vogue. Moments even the psychedelic late-sixties seem to go back again. Today a title could pass for while smooth jazz. In a different way both show They’re thoroughly grounded. Steig & Gomez demonstrated here their love for blues and groove. Music for Flute & Double-Bass and Rainforest are the sounding documents of their time and a testimony of a friendship between two artists who are musically together. Something that one cannot say about size, form, pitch and the age of their instruments…
