“Taken as a collection, the Clifford Jordan- Cedar Walton canon from the Seventies is some of the best jazz ever recorded. If I had to pick only one from that collaboration for a desert isle, it would be Jordan’s Night of the Mark VII.

Talk about a blues band! It’s a live date in France and three of the five pieces are literal blues. The legend is that everyone was drunk. This is quite possible: everything seems even greasier than usual. But clearly no one is too drunk to play.” ETHAN IVERSON (from the group The Bad Plus)
