Got My Mental

Got My Mental is a satisfying trio date with bassist John Patitucci and drummer Jack DeJohnette, and a nice complement to Let's Call This, Khan's 1991 trio album with Ron Carter and Al Foster. As on the earlier outing, Khan includes only one original tune, focusing instead on challenging material by eminent post-bop figures. Wayne Shorter and Lee Morgan are again represented, but this time in the company of Keith Jarrett ("Common Mama"), Eddie Harris ("Sham Time"), and Ornette Coleman ("R.P.D.D."). Khan also presents his laid-back take on two standards, "I Have Dreamed" by Rodgers & Hammerstein and "The Last Dance" by Jimmy Van Heusen and Khan's father, Sammy Cahn. Four rotating percussionists -- Don Alias, Bobby Allende, Marc Quiñones, and Café -- join the trio intermittently. It's fairly uncommon to hear Khan in such a straight-ahead setting. His articulation is superb on the tough bop-oriented lines of the Coleman piece and original title track, although he can become a bit stiff as his solos progress. Shorter's "Paraphernalia," like "Masqualero" on the previous record, was once played by the Miles Davis Quintet and is particularly difficult to carry off with a guitar trio. But Khan doesn't let that stop him. His big, reverby sound and spacious chords create a full spectrum of sound on this and every other tune.
