The Jazz Record Art Collective is proud to present the Neal Alger Quartet for a livestream performance of Larry Young's "Into Something", released in 1965. The night will also feature live painting from visual artist Abena Motaboli!
"The wonderful Into Something album was Larry Young's debut as a leader on Blue Note Records, recorded 12 November 1964. Tenor sax man, Sam Rivers, adds his distinctive voice to the Young-Green-Jones trio. The quartet performs four Young originals plus one original by Green. Other than the blues "Backup," the music is fairly complex, grooving in its own fashion and showing that Young was absorbing Coltrane's modal excursions. Stand outs include Young's relaxed groove "Tyrone", Green's Spanish-tinged "Plaza de Toros", Young's gentle "Paris Eyes", and the blues "Backup". Two versions of Young's "Ritha" are included; one with and one without sax."
