jasonbranscum I've had the Bump cds for a while, but it's been really cool digging into all of the stuff Previte has been posting onto bandcamp lately! It's really fun to hear this combination of musicians in such an open, yet structured environment. Quinella sets the tone for an album that, to me, sounds heavy and serious, but with a joyful tone. I've never heard Don Byron on bari before, so that was especially cool to hear on a couple tracks. My favorite parts on this one are the swingers though! Favorite track: Photo Finish.

    While signed to Gramavision, Previte also began to record for the German label Enja. There were three records in which he returned to a horn front line (but this time four of them). The first of these “racetrack records,” released in 1991, was titled after the name of the band, “Weather Clear, Track Fast.” A truly all-star CD, it featured some of the heaviest “young lions” at the time—Don Byron, Graham Haynes, Robin Eubanks, Marty Ehrlich, Anthony Cox, and Anthony Davis (who later went on to compose the Opera “X”). A more fleshed out version of the earlier records, this is a very compositionally driven CD. Out of print.
