Air Jazz QuartetFrance 1995 Air Transe Music ATM 523322 [1CD]
Jazz Tribute to Deep Purple
Performed by Philippe Ballot (drums), François Barisaux (piano), Alain Gaillet (bass) and Philippe Miraille (tenor & soprano sax). Recorded live in the studio during August 1995.
This represents the "Jazz standards of Deep Purple." But, you're hard pressed to recognize some of the songs due to heavy re-arranging. Black Night turned out rather nice. The riff itself is played slightly differently than in the original, but oh so good. If you don't mind not recognizing some of the songs and if you don't mind jazz, this should be a rather good addition to your CD catalogue - whether or not you like Deep Purple. "Everybody will be swinging on earth".
