adventure time
Pianist Tete Montoliu recorded two fine albums under trumpeter Duško Gojković’s leadership in November 1971 in Barcelona, Spain. In quintet formation, with the Spanish pianist regular rhythm backing of German bassist Robert Langereis and drummer Joe Nay, they did It’s About Blues Time (Ensayo, reissued on CD by Fresh Sounds) and a day later in quartet they did Ten To Two Blues (Ensayo, reissued as After Hours on Enja). The rhythm section on both is the same and both albums are recommended. Gojković is in excellent form on the hard bop-oriented Ten To Two Blues (a.k.a. After Hours) which conjures up images of smoky nightclubs, reflections in rain puddles under dark skies, or perhaps just the quieter music... This album is a little too busy and blustery to live up to those preconceptions, but it is nevertheless an excellent example of that all-too-rare commodity, the trumpet quartet. With no saxophone to trade solos with, the trumpet must bear the burden of carrying the tune and sustaining interest while sharing the spotlight with the supporting trio. With influences extending from Serbia to Dixieland, from bebop to blues, Gojković contributes three songs and adds three standards to this mostly uptempo collection. With the pianist playing up to his usual level and fine support contributed by Langereis and Nay, Gojković takes stimulating solos with his poignant, soft tone on two standards (Thad Jones’ “A Child Is Born” and Cole Porter’s “I Love You”), Slide Hampton’s “Last Minute Blues,” and three basic originals. There is muted artistry of Gojković on “Old Fisherman’s Daughter” and a nostalgic opening solo on the title tune. Montoliu probably deserves a double-billing here: he is outstanding throughout, particularly on the ballad “Remember Those Days” and a boppish take of “I Love You.” Gojković never dominates the proceedings, and steps aside for long stretches on “Last Minute Blues.” One drawback here is the musty, prehistoric engineering: Langereis and Nay give great performances but are not heard to their best advantage, with Langereis especially sounding like he is in the next room. If the wide range of influences and the less-than-ideal (but typical for the time) recording are not a hindrance, listeners should enjoy this album. One mystery surrounding Ten To Two Blues regards its original release date. The recording date is given as November 1971, so one can assume it was first released not too long after. It has appeared on many labels in many different countries throughout the years, sometimes with different track listings. The LP/CD release on Enja After Hours has also two tracks re-titled: “I Remember O.P.” is re-titled to “Remember Those Days,” while “Blues To Line” is re-titled to “Last Minute Blues.” No matter the title, this album is recommended to straight-ahead jazz fans, while the Enja CD reissue seems to be the easiest to find.
