Back to the beats and, yes, I'm throwing in another Friedman into the mix. Some Greek eBayer hipped me to this piece. I then had a Nihon-jin dealer Air Mail me the record in a matter of minutes at a pretty fair price. Veteran jazz pianist Don Friedman did a Japanese-only release on East Wind back in 1975. Rather unremarkable stuff except for the title track. The cut has several movements. One with a Marc Moulin-like Placebo Rhodes groove, another just straight piano, then into a Eastern-tinged funk fusion blow out, and then into a drum solo that proceeds to get OPEN!! True madness and one to sit back and enjoy your favorite narcotic too.
