Product Details
Description
The songs on Coral Keys are decisive and radiant, thankfully free of the indulgences marring many jazz records issued in the early 1970s. The title track finds flutist Vick catching a melodic light tropical breeze before and after a moderately ebullient solo by sure-fingered Bishop. On "Waltz for Zweetie," a close cousin of John Coltrane's "My Favorite Things," Vick's soprano conjures a lyric poetry that brings to mind Coltrane; here Bishop plays his heart out rather quietly. Highlighting "Track Down" is Bishop's deployment of his formidable technique in the service of his active imagination.
