    Talking about Claus Ogerman raised before by Yesternow's post on Symbiosis, makes me want to listen to Cityscape recorded by Ogerman with Michael Brecker:

    Thanks! I'll be streaming some tonight to check it out. I've always heard he was a pretty innovative pianist. I just dont go in for jazz vocals really (it's just never done "it" for me) so I've not really checked him out...

    David S Ware Trio: Live in NY 2010

    With William Parker on bass & Warren Smith on drums

    Recorded live @ The Blue Note on October 4th, 2010

    Both sets complete on 2 discs with the late, great saxophonist starting each set on the straight alto saxophone (or strich) and switching to his normal horn - the tenor saxophone for the last 26+ minutes of the first set & the last 17+ minutes for the second set. By this point at this show - one of his last shows - his last being in August 2011, Ware was playing spontaneously improvised music that may or may not capture some of his themes or variation of those thematic materials that appear on his recordings over his years.

    I have never noticed that sample before but now that you mention it I totally know where it appears in the song. Cool Easter egg!

    I wouldn't rate "Apollo Kids" among Ghost's better discs but there are a few excellent tracks, especially the closer "Troublemakers."

    The spiritual similarities between hip-hop and jazz are many so it's nice to know there are a few other fans lurking within these walls!

    Brad's masterpiece, in my opinion. Which is high praise coming from me.

    We eat fish, tossed salads and make rap ballads!
    I am a huge jazz fan and it's all thanks to the rap of my formative years. I still remember the first time in high school that my friends brother us played Ahmad Jamal "I love music" (from the awakening on impulse) to show the sample in it that comprised "The world is yours" by Nas. Seems like there isn't quite the jazz sampling culture in hip hop now since there's other ways to make beats. I still am always spotting samples from my youth as I hear more jazz. Basically every bob James song is from something.

    (Like "nautilus" in Daytona 500)

    ....I was listening to Digable Planets Blowout Comb on the ride into work this morning. They used all kinds of Jazz samples and live playing on their albums along with lyrical shout outs to the greats.
    I grew up with early 90’s hip hop such as A Tribe Called Quest, which was all about the jazz. Love it still.

    He's one of THE most influential pianists in 20th century American music -- everyone bears his stamp from Ray Charles to Bill Evans to Red Garland, pretty much every pianist of the '40s and '50s. Like I said before, he's kind of the bridge between Earl Hines and then Art Tatum on the one side and Bud Powell and Bill Evans on the other. And Oscar Moore on guitar had almost as big an impact on guitarists. But you'll have to take all of Nat just the way he was. There's probably three vocal sides for every instrumental side in the trio's canon.

    Anyone recall the Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool release on Impulse years ago? There was a 2CD version that featured Branford Marsalis' take on A Love Supreme if my memory serves me well. Some of the jazz/hip hop tracks were quite good to my ear.

    That's a great one. The Capitol album from Cole's height as a pop star that harkens back to the trio. Even billed as "and his trio" even though there's drums and bongos and star guest horn and violin soloists. Great sound too.

    That there be the rub. Thanks for
    All the recs, I think streaming might be better than physical for me then. I don't know why but I can't connect to the pop music side of jazz from this era. The singing and strings don't connect
    With me. But I'm tired of not knowing his playing which everyone says I
    Must hear. Thx!

    Blowout comb is a great one. I always loved the drums on "9th wonder". Maybe an Idress Mohamed sample?

    The drum sample is from “Soul Pride” by James Brown, 1969, so I’d guess that’s the Funky Drummer himself, Clyde Stubblefield.

    I met him after a show in 1970 when he was going through a tough time and he really appreciated it. He chased me down on the street the next day to talk to me, and wanted to exchange information. He said he liked my hat, wanted one like it, and wore one just like it on his next album (Bird On The Wire). He taught me that geniuses were people with the same concerns as everyone else. I felt, even at that time, that he was a terribly lonely man.
