ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Allaboutjazz.com Review of He Who Lives In Many Places by John Barron

Noted composer of film music, orchestral conductor and bassist extraordinaire Terry Plumeri made his debut as a jazz artist in 1971 with the now landmark release He Who Lives in Many Places. Newly re-mastered and re-issued, the ground breaking session from the fusion-era features an all-star cast consisting of pianist Herbie Hancock, guitarist John Abercrombie, drummer Michael Smith and percussionist Eric Gravatt.

The disc's five tracks, all composed by Plumeri, are open-ended in nature, allowing for spontaneous group invention. Beneath Smith's propulsive cymbal groove, "Underwater" plays out like a conversation in slow motion between Plumeri, Hancock and Abercrombie. The bassist's stark themes are carefully revealed between stretches of improvised punch. The title track is a striking, brief duet for bass and piano. Plumeri's singing upper register lines are supported by Hancock's imaginative, classically-influenced approach.

Abercrombie's distorted guitar plays the lead role on the odd-metered funk vamp "Timeworn," held together by Plumeri's simple, yet hauntingly repetitive bass line. Venturing full throttle into the realm of free-form, "Dayspring America" is an exciting adventure full of spontaneous twists and turns. Gravatt's percussion tinkering, Hancock's aggressiveness on the Fender Rhodes and Plumeri's front-and-center bowing creates a plethora of unexpected sound textures.

The disc closer, "Bees" begins with Plumeri's angular, stretched-out theme, eerily emulating the unsettling buzz of an angry swarm of yellow jackets. Eventually the groove settles into a driving swing tempo, setting the stage for inspired solos by Hancock and Abercrombie.

The passing decades have done little to tarnish the unabashed, coherence exhibited in this music. He Who Lives In Many Places is nothing short of magnificent. The sounds are still fresh, uncontrived and motivated by communal desires.

A piece of Jazz History!
There are many things which stand out about this disc of Plumeri originals. Hancock takes a wonderful Rhodes solo; he also shows his rarely used classical chops. Plumeri shows his proficiency with the bow, which he uses beautifully. The guitar/bowed bass
combination is a great sound. More than just a CD re-release, this album is a piece of jazz history.

Truly beautiful and unusual playing by Herbie Hancock!
I am very glad to have discovered some truly beautiful and unusual playing by Herbie on this obscure recording. The innovative sound of Terry Plumeri’s bowing and composing was also a treat. The unusual combination of personnel seems to have affected everyone in a magical way.

Ralph Sims

One of the unsung heros of the early 70s!
This CD is one of the unsung heroes of the early 70s which gave birth to the likes of Weather Report. Aside from being the debut recording of innovative bassist, Terry Plumeri, it has some great and unusual playing from Herbie Hancock. Check out the title track which shows the classical side of Herbie which is rarely heard. A real gem and well worth owning...Lot's of original music from a band which has an unusual chemistry.

This is the real thing!! Stellar journey.

One of my favorites!!!
One of my favorites for many years on record! Even in ’71, Terry Plumeri was proving himself an innovator with his arco bass playing, as well as his compositions. The title track has some very beautiful, classically influenced playing by Herbie Hancock.
