Odean Pope, Out for a Walk (Moers 1990)


Most sites list this disc as a 1990 release, but Odean Pope's official website lists it as a 1980 recording, two years before Almost Like Me. Regardless, Out for a Walk starts where Almost Like Me leaves off. The two discs could easily have been recorded at the same session. It's the same line up, with Gerald Veasley on bass and Cornell Rochester on drums stretching out and playing some serious modern music. There's nothing else out there quite like this, funky modern Philly jazz with some amazingly serious bass. Not to be missed.
