Head Jazz

David "Fathead" Newman's jazzy take on "You Can't Always Get What You Want" also works well, showing the soulful connection between the "electric" jazz of the late '60s/early '70s and the acid rock of the same era. ...

But while tracks like Hubert Laws' haunting "Equinox" and Joe Zawinul's trippy "Soul of the Village/Part 2" carry the theme perfectly, tracks like Jimmy Scott's heartbreaking "Day By Day" and Ornette Coleman's swingin' "Ramblin'" are just a tad too earthbound to fit in with the spacy set. It's a damn fine album, but a couple of more mind-altering tracks away from greatness.
