Terry Plumeri's He Who Lives In Many Places
, featuring Herbie Hancock
and John Abercrombie
, has just received it's re-release in the CD format by GMMC Records. Selected by Billboard Magazine to appear on their Hit Album Picks page at the time of it's original release, He Who Lives In Many Places
was an influential recording of it's day. Still showing it's influence in it's ability to stand the test of time and sounding as fresh as if it were recorded today, He Who Lives In Many Places features pianist Herbie Hancock, guitarist John Abercrombie, drummer Michael Smith and drummer Eric Gravatt playing percussion.
Notable qualities of the album are: the debut of the arco bass voice of Terry Plumeri; one of the only recorded examples of Herbie Hancock's playing in the year 1971; the rare appearance of Herbie Hancock and John Abercrombie together; the classical side of Herbie Hancock, which is displayed on the title cut; the rare appearance of Eric Gravatt as a percussionist, who at the time of the recording was playing drums with the original Weather Report; the unusual combination of acoustic bass and electric guitar as a front line voice; the solid rhythmic and structural foundation provided by drummer Michael Smith.
In retrospect, He Who Lives In Many Places is a piece of jazz fusion history, which for a number of years has lived only in the limited world of vinyl. Now with it's rebirth into the digital world, this music which was documented thirty-six years ago by premiere jazz recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder, and recently re-mastered by Grammy Award winning mastering engineer Arnie Acosta, now lives.
He Who Lives In Many Places is vailable at CD Baby.
