- University Of Utah Jazz Ensemble & Mike Johnson Quartet with Lloyd Miller “Jazz At The University Of Utah” LP (East-West-Records, US, 1967). Tokyo Digs, Part 6. After spending many years abroad not only in the Middle East, but also half of Europe, where Lloyd Miller played with fellow visionaries such as Jef Gilson, on his way back to US in the second half of the sixties, he entered the Brigham Young University. In his first year, for participating in a jazz contest, Lloyd gave the idea of fusing jazz with Eastern music to his fellow musicians in the university. Under Lloyd's supervision they made a harmonically daring blend of Persian instruments with a cool-jazz oriented sound, and Lloyd, always a visionary, called that Oriental Jazz. Unlike anything else presented at the jazz festival, the Oriental Jazz Quartet took the first prize, and their recording turned out to be one of the most impressive takes on West-meets-East concepts in music. ‘Jazz At The University Of Utah’ is proof of that fruitful and daring period and is another treasure put out on Miller’s own East West Records in a run of just a few hundred copies upon its original release. The album is a wonderful synthesis of modal jazz and the eastern-inspired instrumentation Miller is beloved for, recorded with players from the university's jazz ensembles, along with several numbers with the Mike Johnson Quartet. Amazing stuff from start to finish and even though it might not be considered as essential as his undisputed masterpiece ‘Oriental Jazz’, this one is certainly close behind. This beauty has just seen an astonishing and way overdue reissue treatment by Egon @nowagain so if you don’t know this one yet, there’s no excuse to not check it out!
