Craig Harris / Tailgaters Tales
Contemporary Jazz
Winter & Winter 2001

In Shelter, trombonist Craig Harris attempts a lengthy programmatic
composition as the record's set piece, and the results are mixed.
"Shelter Suite" is intended as an evocation of the lives of New York's
homeless but, aside from the overtly referential sung portions, the
music is sometimes a bit messy, other times lugubrious. It's the sort of
work that Harris' former employer Henry Threadgill can pull off with
grace but that stultifies in lesser hands. The opening, "Africans
Unite," has a bouncy and catchy theme but again, the lyrics have an "up
with people" cachet that's more than a bit queasy. However, the basic
quintet assembled is a good one, including the young Don Byron in one of
the first bands that brought his talents to light. "Cootie" is a jumpy,
rough-hewn number that features him nicely, as well as showcasing the
leader's u***takable growl. The closing "Sound Sketches" has a sinuous,
slightly threatening sounding groove that drummer Pheeroan akLaff
clearly takes delight in, and this piece actually does broach the sort
of territory in which Threadgill and David Murray often dwelt. An uneven
set, but the highlights and generally fine level of playing make
Shelter worth a listen, depending on one's tolerance for
