Electric guitarist James ”Blood” Ulmer, a veteran of Ornette Coleman’s landmark fusion outfit Prime Time, is one of jazz’s great progressives. Recent releases have foregrounded his gruff singing rather than his guitar journeys. Back in Time revives his powerhouse guitar/violin/drums trio from 1983’s Odyssey for some barbed, lyrical, mostly instrumental blues-funk jams that get far-out, but never lose the groove.
