never enough rhodes comp #6 (jazz)




'Always Something' - Jazz Liberatorz


'Tergivisation' - Elvin Jones


'Trouble Man' - Ahmad Jamal

I'm really happy with the sequencing on this one, so I hope that you grab it even if you've got some of the tracks already. I really love the way that the Jazz Liberatorz build a rhodes track over a classic rhodes loop with great playing. John Klemmer's track fits the cover pic the best, George Duke is back with the Cannonball Adderley Quintet, recorded around the same time as "The Inner Source", if you liked that. The great Onaje Allan Gumbs stretches out with Buster William's ensemble, and we finish with Herbie Hancock intertwining his acoustic and rhodes pianos with Milt Jackson's vibes on the beautiful 'Sunflower'.


Comments will bring us all happiness :)

hi Simon3x6,
another great comp! Cover is also excellent! Though I know 3/4 of the songs, I'm checking it out anyways, it's always good for one hour or more of chilling sounds...
Thanks, mate and also for the wonderful keys of mr. Sardaby (also at Reza's place!) GREAT!
you're rocking skyhigh here!
peace, E-mile

Just found your site about a week ago. The comp looks really interesting so I'm looking forward to it. I'll be back later to check out the other ones I'm sure. Thanks for the share.

Added you to my blogroll over at Fufu Stew too... Feel free to drop by anytime.

Peace and blessings.

I discovered this site a couple of weeks ago and have been listening to these "neverenoughrhodes" compilations in constant rotation ever since! Brings me back to the late 70s when my uncle, a NYC-area jazz musician, had a big fender rhodes in his tiny apartment basement. I miss that humming sound it made when you turned it on. Sadly, he sold it in the 80s for a smaller, more portable Yamaha-DX7. But as you establish here, you can never get enough Rhodes!!
