Electric Bath [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
For his first studio recording with his colorful big band, Don Ellis utilized five trumpets, three trombones, five reeds, Mike Lang on keyboards, three bassists, drummer Steve Bohannon, and three percussionists to perform some remarkable new music. The most memorable selection is "Indian Lady" accurately described as a "hoedown in 5/4", which with its false endings is often quite humorous. The other four originals the trumpeter-leader's feature on "Alone," "Turkish Bath," "Open Beauty," and the 17/4 "New Horizons", while lesser-known, are also quite spirited.

For the first time Ellis opened his band to the influence of rock making liberal use of electronics and the results lend themselves to some hilarity. The 1998 CD reissue has the original five selections plus the brief single versions of "Turkish Bath" and "Indian Lady." Well worth searching for.

    Moment in Time

    When I was young my dad's college jazz band played with Don Ellis' band in Visalia, CA. 1973.I listened to this album constantly which shaped my ears desire for weird metered music and the like. Don's trumpet was his own invention and as a child I recall lots of incense, beads, pot and Love making going on back stage. This album is a lost archive of the 70's Jazz scene in California. Cool Daddio!
