Bientôt une actualité discographique intéressante pour les amateurs de Pharoah :
On September 23, saxophonist and composer Kenny Garrett will make his Mack Avenue Records debut with Sketches Of MD: Live At The Iridium. A capricious excursion into open-ended melodies over grooves that reflect the artistry of key sidemen from Miles Davis' many groups - from John Coltrane to Kenny himself - Sketches Of MD is a compositionally relaxed yet "live" record of some music Kenny performed at the Iridium Jazz Club in New York City with his band (Benito Gonzales on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Jamire Williams on drums) and special guest, tenor saxophone legend Pharoah Sanders.

Breaking down Sketches of MD, Kenny states, "I wanted to document the band I took on the road for Beyond the Wall while we were working with Pharoah and also write some new songs. The idea of doing the Miles-related songs just evolved. It's funkier than Beyond the Wall, but then again not really. When you think of John Coltrane's or McCoy Tyner's music, it had an ostinato, vamp kind of feel with elongated tunes. What we're doing is a little different basically because the beats are different." The result, captured before a live audience in New York City, is a soul-stirring energy exchange. "That's because this music was as new to the audience as it was to the band," Kenny explains.

Though the opening number, "The Ring," is initially reminiscent of Mingus' "Goodbye Porkpie Hat," it ultimately mirrors the magic of a John Coltrane masterwork. "I was hanging out with Pharoah at his house one day and we happened to be discussing overtones," Kenny shares. "I came up with this riff and he told me I should work it into a tune. So when we got together for the Iridium dates, I surprised him with an outline for one. It is reminiscent of 'A Love Supreme' and that's what I was going for because the nature of the overtone suggested that. As we started to rehearse the tune, it began to take even fuller shape. Pharoah came up with a harmony part for it and every night we tried it a few different ways to see how we could make those pieces fit. It's not verbatim Trane, but the idea of it came from some stuff that Trane would probably do."

Next is "Intro to Africa," the haunting afro gospel-tinged meditation that closest reflects the black history that Kenny Garrett has always been about - from the bedrock piano and organ strains to the eerie effects he puts his horn through. It's the first part of a suite that Kenny will record in its entirety in the near future. But he felt compelled to introduce this part to the world early if only because of the way it inspired Pharoah the first time he shared it with him. "I played it for Pharoah at a sound check and it immediately brought something out of him. He started singing. At that point I was just so happy that he intuitively understood it. When I wrote it, I had a feeling he'd get to it right away - be able to go to 'that place' again and reflect on some of the music he's written. This is just the intro, but it falls right in with the concept of this project being 'sketches' of larger things."

The title track "Sketches of MD" is, clearly, Kenny's musings on Miles Davis, the music legend that Kenny had the honor and pleasure of recording and touring with the last five years of his life (1987-1991). "I'm playing a lot of 'colors' on this one...,' he explains. "It's not about improvisation as much as the melodies. At the end when we break it down and do the free-for-all thing where I re-harmonize the chords over the bass line, it's all a take on my experiences with Miles. It wasn't planned. It just flowed that way. And my use of effects on the saxophone gives it a different flavor, too."

"Wayne's Thang" is a nod to saxophone and composing great Wayne Shorter that Kenny previously recorded on his 1995 CD Triology. This live version is certainly funkier - now more in line with the late, great Eddie Harris' "Cold Duck Time" especially with the extended use of full bar breaks in the middle. It's a crowd grabber and a perfect segue into the CD's encore "Happy People," Kenny Garrett's "greatest hit" ever since he dropped the Cannonball Adderley-esque soul bomb on an unsuspecting world from his 2002 CD of the same name. It has not been unusual for Kenny's audience's to want the band to jam on this for well over half an hour. It just makes you feel so good!

Thinking back on the time he's spent at the Iridium, it seems destined that he would record his latest statement within its ever-supportive confines. And any occasion in which he can match wits with the ever spiritual Mr. Sanders is alright with Kenny. "Pharoah's my man! We have a rapport. We challenge each other, but at the same time I'm his student. He likes that I can get the sound I get from an alto, which is similar to the tenor. It's always a blessing for me to have Pharoah in the band and to create some new music on the spot. I wanted us to create a new vision for that one week just to see what happened."

Former WEA recording artist Kenny Garrett chose Detroit-based Mack Avenue as the home for his live project for a couple of reasons. "I see Mack Avenue as an independent label with big ideas. They're making noise in my hometown, so I wanted to be a part of it. I didn't want a company that can't do something because all they know is the 'normal' way. I wanted fresh marketing - something beyond my core."

Summing up his concept of artistry, Kenny concludes, "You have to keep living and gain more experiences. It is then that you can create. Whenever I do music, I do it to the highest level I can do it. That's what it's about. When I'm not here, will the music speak for itself?"
