Pianist Nicki Adams and I recorded duos recently, and the first to be published on YouTube is my reharmonization of Joe Henderson's "Afrocentric". I love Joe's original recording, Power to the People (a jazz masterpiece), but I also recommend a beautiful version on James Williams's Up to the Minute Blues (with George Coleman and Billy Pierce) and also an arrangement on Conrad Herwig's Latin Side of Joe Henderson. My goal here was to use some double triad or chromatic harmonies that I enjoy playing over, so consequently I rewrote the bass line (originally a core part of the tune) to reflect those chords.
The second tune is a reharmonization of Wayne Shorter's 'Iris", from Miles Davis's 1965 Columbia album, ESP. Nicki writes that "I arranged this one in a style similar to the piano techniques used in Bartok's second piano etude."
