More Fake Jazz

My contribution to Fake Jazz Sunday: New York by the jazz-rock outfit Dreams, starring the Brecker Brothers and Billy Cobham (1970).

If you like, and have the time, below is most of the album side that New York closes.  It loosely strings together a couple of songs the group called Dream Suite–you’ll note that it ends with Cobham’s drum work that opens New York.

This is pretty early jazz-rock.  Al Kooper/Blood Sweat & Tears had come at it from the rock side a little earlier and Miles Davis Bitches Brew, released about the same time as Dreams, came at it harder from the jazz side.  Dreams split the difference nicely, IMHO.

Gainfully employed for thirty years, including as one of those high paid college administrators faculty complain about. Earned Ph.D. late in life and converted to the faculty side. Those damn administrators are ruining everything.
