Arthur Blythe - Elaborations/Light Blue: Arthur Blythe Plays Thelonious Monk/Put Sunshine In It album
Arthur Blythe had a long and varied career, but sadly passed away from Parkinson's Disease in March of 2017. Disc: 1. 1. Elaborations. Even the title sounds dated: Put Sunshine in It. Arthur does his best on it and his sound is still a treasure but it’s dull stuff, and even Blythe seems to be coasting on it. (Here’s another sign of the difference between the other two albums and this one: all the songs on the first album except one were written by Blythe, and the exception is a kickass rendition of the funky One Mint Julep ; the songs on the second album were all written by Thelonious Monk, than whom no one except possibly Strayhorn and Ellington, wrote.

The second volume of Arthur Blythe on Columbia features three different albums that show the stylistic diversity of the saxophonist, who summed up his eclectic approach in an interview with Ben Sidran: "The music that I deal with has elements of bebop to ballad, swing to sweet, blues to boogie, and pop to rock. Just like Arthur Blythe is not an ordinary saxophonist, Basic Blythe is not a conventional album with strings. It contains the obligatory ballads, but also moves into more unpredictable rhythmic territory without breaking the emotional mood of the album (hear Blythe revisiting his composition "Faceless Woman" in the attached YouTube-video to hear an example of his dynamic work with strings). In the center of it all is Blythe's soulful and expressive playing.
