life

By TOM BERGH
MILES DAVIS has always acted as a magnet for gifted
musicians, and the group on his latest LP Agharta
(Columbia 33967) is no exception. Sonny Fortune on wood-
winds, Michael Henderson on bass, Pete Cosey and Reggie
Lucas on guitar, Al Foster on drums, and Mtume on per-
cussion display the same virtuosity as the earlier generation
that included Chic Corea. The rhythm section is especially
brilliant, setting up intricately arranged and shifting patterns
which dominate the entire album.
The music is best approached as a whole, that is greater
than the sum of its parts. Like the movements of a sym-
phony, the cuts complement and highlight each other. This
is reflected in the fact that there are only four separate
compositions on the entire double album.
This album is a stage on the path broken by the famous
Bitches Brew LP, the precursor of the entire electric rock-
influenced jazz idiom. Agharta is more of a finished product,
incorporating lessons learned in the interim.
DAVIS, 49, had been in poor health before the release
of this album, and there was some fear that his musical
career might be ending. This album proves that he is not
only alive and well, but still capable of assuming his
generally acknowledged position as the most important
living figure in jazz.
AN INTERESTING feature of Agharta is that, despite
the fact that it is a live album, no applause was recorded at
the end of the cuts. It has always offended me to pay good
money for an album only to get stuck with extended bursts
of adulation.
Davis' tasteful fade-outs are a demonstration not only of
respect for his audience, but also of his self-assurance and
creative maturity.

iginal color and power.

wise, his "Gibraltar" opens
with the sound of a boat passing
by, and Pastorius' "Barbary
Coast" uses the rhythm of a
train to give the song the pro-!
per atmosphere.
THE FIRST side exclusively
features Zawinul's attempts to i
express the sights and sounds of |
various personal experiences. At
this, he is one of jazz's foremost
architects-building layer upon
layer of spirited rhythms that
eventually serve as a founda-
tion for the unique melodies and
harmonies that emerge. His,
compositions resound with cre-
scendos and flourishes, and even
a slower tune, like "Cannon
Ball," becomes stronger as a
result.

Shorter's two contributions on
Side 2, "Elegant People" and
"Three Clowns," are less em-
phatic and more refined exam-1
ples of the same affirmation of
life. "E 1 e g a n t People," in
particular, showcases Shorter's
mellow saxaphone against the
tinny keys of Zawinul's piano.
The constrasting effect between
these sounds produces a strik-
ing result.
ALPHONSO Johnson, who has
recently been doing some work
outside of the group, closes the
LP with "Herandnu." It's a sur-

prisingly assertive number from
a member who's stayed pretty
much out of the limelight. It
begins at a point where another
song would just begin to peak,
and Johnson keeps the momen-
tum going in a fitting summary
of this uptempo record.
With clearcut production from
Zawinul and S h o r t e r, Black
Market reaches the listener by
affirming the belief that life is
a pleasant experience. It's an
uplifting message and, as the
title suggests, you can get whatj
you want from Weather Report
-and at a bargain price, too.
