In the first set of the Sunday Jazz Show, we played an underrated gem of the post-Coltrane, post-bop era: Chico Freeman’s 1977 LP Beyond The Rain. The son of Chicago jazz saxophonist Von Freeman, Beyond The Rain finds the then young tenorman playing in a quartet setting with another wildly underrated player in pianist Hilton Ruiz, bassist Juni Booth and Coltrane’s longtime drummer, the legendary Elvin Jones. We played the cut “Two Over One.” If you missed it, you can check it out here. Be sure to listen to the interplay of Ruiz and Elvin Jones. Fantastic stuff.
