James Blood Ulmer - Part Time

Recorded at the Montreux Jazz Festival in July 1983 (but not released until 1984 on the British Rough Trade label), Part Time documents the Odyssey trio of Ulmer, drummer Warren Benbow, and violinist Charles Burnham in a live setting. It's heavy on the Odyssey material, and the high point is some righteous jamming back and forth between Ulmer and Burnham on Odyssey's "Swings & Things." Here is the complete track list:

  1. Part Time
  2. Little Red House
  3. Love Dance
  4. Encore
  5. Are You Glad To Be In America?
  6. Swings & Things
  7. Mr. Tight Hat

The album is unfortunately short, clocking in at just thirty-two and a half minutes. But it's a great thirty-two and a half minutes! Get the vinyl rip (not pristine, sorry) here or here.

Thanks for the J.B.U.!!! I've been collecting his stuff for several months. Before that I was ignorant of his great work. Also, thanks to the "ananymous" who requested it.

I've got a very large collection of Blood, but not this one. Thanks a million!

P.S. - let me know if there's any of his you're looking for.

You're welcome. Do you have the second Phalanx album? That's the only one I'm still looking for at the moment. Thanks for visiting,

(P.S. - I have some Fats Comet records too. Or I used to.)

Fantod,

What is the title of that 2nd Phalanx? If I have it I will get it up on rapidshare for you ASAP.

FC,

"In Touch" is the Phalanx album I'm looking for.

Got it, thank you!!! I've been looking for that for so long that I forgot about it until a few days ago. I think I have a couple more Blood and Shannon Jackson odds and ends to post eventually.
