John Abercrombie’s ECM debut ‘Timeless’ (recorded 1974) has proven to be exactly that. This fiery session with Jack DeJohnette and Jan Hammer still sounds as fresh as the year it was released. “Timeless comes as a major surprise in terms of its depth, scope and inventiveness,” wrote Tim Buckley’s guitarist Lee Underwood in the L.A. Free Press. “[It] indicates that John Abercrombie is a major musical voice of tomorrow.”

This wonderful man was cousin Rick’s roommate in college and I am therefore quite sure that a heckuva lot of sweet, sweet music filled the air over there. I was saddened to learn that the lad has passed and some time ago, too. But his music is immortal, a gift to us all for all time.
Man, I very often hate being a g. d. hermit. I am trying to be better, with limited success, but learning of this reality made me sad.
Well, the title says it… sigh… enjoy, folks.
