James Blood Ulmer 'Odyssey' (USA)

James Blood Ulmer: guitar, vocals
Charles Burnham: violin
Warren Benbow: drums

Odyssey stands as James Blood Ulmer’s signature masterpiece, the purest and most accessible showcase for his bold, genre-clashing guitar vision. With minimal trio accompaniment Ulmer’s guitar is always the meat of the ensemble, especially since his unique tuning allows him to cover bass parts as well as guitar leads. AllMusic’s Steve Huey calls it „not only Ulmer’s finest album, but a certified classic of the modern jazz avant-garde."
