    Default Rich Perry is THE MAN

    No other stuff in my CD or mp3 player since long ago now.I'm really diggin' the man's sound, approach, technique, i mean; it all!.
    I'm in the quest off all his recordings both as leader and sideman.By now I finally succeeded in putting all together his Steeplechase recordings.I also managed to gather a lot of his stuff with Harold Danko, Vanguard Jazz Orchestra and some others.
    One of my favorite recordings from him are Gone and O Grande Amor.
    What's your favorite Rich Perry work?.
    Who cares?.

    Beautiful player. I think I have most of the Steeplechase CDs. I don't really understand what he does. Refrained from transcribing one of his solos because it seems so difficult to me.

    I really like Rich, he is an orginal... I like his lesser known recordings with Dave Scott (trumpet player)

    Nonchalant and Naivette are two of my favorite recordings with Perry as sideman.Plenty of original improvisation there.
    Who cares?.

    I've discovered Rich recently. He has a very original approach. O Grande Amor is a great CD.

    I have most of Rich Perry's recordings. One of my favorites is the one with Paul Bley called Speechless. I think the reason I like it so much is that Paul Bley is really free with his improv and comping and I think it is a more spontaneous session. Harold Danko is great and he plays on most of Rich's albums but when I heard this album with Bley I felt like it was more on the edge. I was more surprised and not sure of where it was going which I like.

    PS. I just listened to some sample clips from Nonchalant and that sounds like it is in a similar kind of mindset as the Bley recording. Like you don't know what's gonna come next...........I like that.

    His Steeplechase CD 3 in 1 is a very special recording. Not a bad track on it. Its one of those recordings i have gravitated to listening to.. ALOT.

    I love these threads... I only know a little of Rich Perry from his tenure with Mel Lewis, and when of the guys on the local jazz station who plays sax gets him on occasionally. Need to get hip to some of his other work, sounds like I've been missing out on some great sax.

    He has heat on a lot of Maria Schneider albums, and always sounds great with the band behind him!

    Rich is such a great and unique player. There are so many great records, but one of my favorites is 'Next Age' with Harold Danko as the leader. Fabulous playing.

    E-motion is one of my favorites. Also I can't remember the name but there's a great Harold Danko album with Rich and Dick Oates...might be called Oates and Perry. Rich is an amazing talent.

    A rare Rich Perry recording is his duo album 'Crossroads' with Peter Sommer, also a fine tenor player. It is under Sommer's name.
