SUBJECT: an album as a continuous Back to Subjects

Pat has often said that his albums are like one long continuous song. Of course that REALLY happened in TWU, but you can hear it on other albums too, for sure. Heck, sometimes it all seems to even be in the same key (American Garage seems to favour G) Except I don’t hear it on Offramp. That album has such diversity, it seems to be all over the map to me. Do you hear it as one song?

Bookmark and Share interesting topic...I would throw 80/81 in to the conversation. There is definitely a continuity to both discs in those recordings tying the sound of Pat/Brecker and Haden together. Every time I listen to it I hear something new.

Bookmark and Share I always thought Question and Answer was like that. That was a straight ahead session really but the actual theme of them doing that sort of carried that entire LP for me as one continuous vibe.

Bookmark and Share Offramp is diverse but, whether by accident or design, it seems to make ’sense’ as a single piece somehow. Try listening to the songs in a different order; it just doesn’t work! (Or is it just that I’ve listened to it so many times?)
