David Schnitter's Sketch
This one has been waiting for me patiently in the Penguin Guide. A single entry under "Schnitter". I listened to it over the last couple of days and I have concluded that Sketch is more buried masterpiece. There is so much to appreciate here. You will hear echoes of the Jazz Messengers, with whom Schnitter played for a long time. There is a lot of Don Cherry and a healthy lump of Ornette Coleman. This my favorite kind of jazz album: standards done like you have never heard them before.
All About Jazz has an excellent review. From that source, here is the lineup:
You really want this one in your collection. I am playing a couple of cuts from the album: 'For All We Know', and 'You Don't Know What Love Is'. Enjoy.
