Arthur Juini Booth

About juini booth Arthur Juini Booth, bassist/composer, Aquarician, lives and works in New York City. Playing professionally since 16, Juini Booth has expanded the range of the contrabass into a refined personal language of intense acoustic awareness and spatiality of sound. Firmly rooted in the forefront of the American jazz tradition, which he has helped to shape, Booth's music also integrates influences from world music, emerging beyond the boundaries of categories to express the poetics of universal humanness. His compositions reflect a masterful use of simple melodic themes developed through unexpected harmonies, unusual tonal qualities and time relationships, inviting the listener to a new level of musical perception...

This album was an announcement that he knew who he was and where he was going.

Spacing [10:35][compositions by Bunky Green except wher e noted] Ernie Krivda Quartet, Live at Rusty's North Coast Jazz Records, 1983 The Cleveland-based North Coast Jazz label, a short-lived but briefly significant record company, captured the underrated but highly original tenor Ernie Krivda during a live quartet gig with pianist Neal Creque, bassist Juny Booth and drummer Paul Samuels in 1981. Krivda really stretches out on two of his originals (the 14-minute "Irv's at Midnight" and the 19-minute "Song of the Moor"), in addition to playing a warm version of "But Beautiful." Krivda's extroverted sound and exploratory style are heard in fine form on this obscure but worthy LP. ~ Scott Yanow Beaver Harris Quartet.

Tenorist Steve Grossman, who played with Miles Davis' electric group in the early 1970s, is in a Sonny Rollins vein throughout this excellent trio outing with bassist Free Music Ensemble featuring Juini Booth, cassette, 39 Maher Ave., Toronto, Ont. M6P 1S7 No Sunday-brunch jazz, this: Toronto's Free Music Ensemble plays far-out free jazz with enough energy and controlled chaos to turn the heads of jazz fans and indie-rock kids alike ... and it so happens that trumpeter James Duncan and drummer Mike Gennaro played together in indie combo Skewver before finding their present voice in the late-60's style of Albert Ayler, Ornette Coleman, and especially the final works of John Coltrane. On this three-song cassette, recorded live in November 1994, the Ensemble performs long, expanded versions of tracks that appeared on their 1995 self-titled cassette. James' jerky, frenetic trumpet blends with alto saxman Kenny Baldwin's solos over great washes of sound laid down by Mike and vibe/percussionist Mark Hundevad. The band's regular lineup is joined by veteran free-jazz bassist Juini Booth, whose abstract improvisations add a loose, time-bending quality to the sound - especially on "The Adventures of Sonny", a long, meandering piece that takes up the B-side of the cassette. Here, the quiet interplay between Juini and an uncredited guitarist shines out - carrying the piece from its energetic post-bop beginning into dissonant soundscapes evocative of the late avant-garde guitarist Sonny Sharrock (aha!) and back into the jazz for a mellow finale.

Risen Eternal 3. Holy Servant 4. Draw Me Nearer 5. New Earth 6. Glorified Love A swingin' affair once again from Mr. Charles Gayle, who, along with David S. Ware, is the preeminent avant-garde tenor saxophone player of the era. Shades of mid-60s ESP-Disk/Impulse havoc abound, but actually this is a more lyrical affair than Gayle's previous two Knitting Factory albums, Kingdom Come and Testaments. On earlier CDs, Gayle seemed to keep reaching and reaching, and while his fortitude was inspiring, it seemed at times groundless. On Ancient of Days, Gayle and his collaborators lay a more solid foundation, which at least brings him back to earth once in a while. Joining Gayle on Ancient of Days is a stellar cast of players, including the spirited pianist Hank Johnson, bassist Juini Booth, and longtime Gayle drummer Michael Wimberly, who evokes outright Elvin Jones-style percussion on "New Earth." Ancient Of Days is a masterpiece of consistent, fire-breathing testimonial. --Joe S. Harrington (Word 97)
