The acoustic bassist favors a post-bopavant-garde setting on Third Eye, which was his third album as a leader and his second with his band Medicine Wheel. Allison and his sidemen aren't afraid to venture into outside playing when it's appropriate, but most of the time, they remain inside. Except for Herbie Nichols' Love Is Proximity a gem that the late pianist wrote but never recorded, all of the songs are Allison originals. Third Eye is the 3rd album by bassist Ben Allison. It was released on the Palmetto Records label in 1999. All compositions by Ben Allison, except where noted. Four Folk Songs. Love Is Proximity Herbie Nichols. Bassist and bandleader Ben Allison is simply a towering talent, a jazz innovator, and hes put to tape some of the grittiest, prettiest music Ive ever heard. Instrumentation-wise, the ensemble is slightly offbeat: two tenorsopranobass clarinets, trumpetflugelhorn, cello, piano, bass, and drums. Allison plays acoustic guitar on this tune, doubling the tricky melody with Tomas Ulrichs cello. Unusual timbres also crop up on Mantra, which begins with Allison hitting his strings with a drumstick. Pianist Frank Kimbrough plays part of the gorgeous melody on a toy piano, adding a chime-like sound to the mix. The result is magical. Medicine Wheel. Ben Allison - Medicine Wheel 1998.
