Ready or Not 2

A 12 track jazz-funk album (1h 37s) — released November 13th 2006 on DO RIGHT! MUSIC

'READY OR NOT, here we come with the second volume of the critically acclaimed collection of lost Canadian jazz treasures from the CBC archives. Now Fred Stone, Emile Normand, Nick Ayoub and the recently departed Billy Robinson are back for an encore, joining seven more fabulous contributors including the Alvinn Pall Sextet, groundfloor bop pianist Sadik Hakim, Vancouver's freaky-fine Sunship Ensemble, along with Toronto scenemakers Ted Moses and pianist Bernie Senensky, who shows he could get surprisingly funky back in the day with the first recording of his signature tune Beloved Gift. Among the many highlights are a super-rare early 60s broadcast transcription of Montreal's Yvan Landry Quartet giving Jean-Pierre Ferland's somber standard Ton Visage a radically raging overhaul. And you won't believe that Lynda Niles stirring rendition of Tryin' Times that rivals Roberta Flack's own. Support from Djs Nicola Conte, Quantic, Rainer Truby, Kyoto Jazz Massive, and Movement Collective.

"Those who enjoyed the walk through CBC's brimming vaults of improvised jazz from the 60s and 70s on Do Right!'s Ready Or Not Vol. 1 will be pleased with this follow-up... highly justifiable jazz sequel." - Now

The First volume was a nice wakeup call, but volume 2 picks up the pace with harder grooving pieces... and it's sequenced just right." - Exclaim
