Jan Garbarek: Legend Of The Seven Dreams
Due to my two-day retaining wall rebuilding project here (underneath our back deck), I'm a day late and a dollar short on this "Hot Rats' anniversary and the Monk birthday observation. After I move some dirt and some stone later this morning, I will spin the near mint vinyl 'Hot Rats" that I found a few months ago later today (It has "the map" on the inner sleeve ). Will also have to spin a few sides of Thelonious too while I'm finishing the work outside. You can't listen to too much Monk.
Right now on the back deck with Steve Kuhn's "Motility" playing. Nice atmospheric ECM recording for a chilly morning.
Great seller JPC. Good prices.
Keith Jarrett: At The Blue Note #6
Keith Jarrett - Standards Vol. 1 (ECM ECM-1255)
This one is really fine - one of my alltime Jarrett favorits
Eberhard Weber: Yellow Fields
Dave Holland Quartet - Conference Of The Birds (ECM ECM-1027)
Such great music….
Oregon: Winter Light
Modern Jazz Quartet: In Japan #1
Just picked up the Wounded Bird CD re-issue. It may seem like an odd collaboration but it works great. Elvin isn't mixed too loud so it's a good blend with the quartet.
...a day late & a $1 short....sorry T.M.
Thelonious Monk – Criss-Cross
Happy Friday friends!
Carlos lyra- depois do carnaval, Br 60s
Talking about Leon Thomas on Lotus thread, it came to my mind this jewel also thanks to Freddie Hubbard and friends:
NP: Wahoo! Joe brings the gravitas in his solos and Duke, Byrd and Spaulding bring the lyricism. Amanda (latin), Bedouin (eastern) and Wahoo (western) are all different but magnificent.
Great album, one of my favorite.
It's a commonly used term, and merely descriptive. Of course there are serious aspects of everything, even music that appears to exist solely for entertainment. I don't believe that one is superior to the other, that's one aspect of what the fuss about the pronouncements of Crouch and Marsalis have been about. No need to get defensive, and certainly none to tell me what I meant. If you prefer, just substitute 'small audience' for 'serious'. I enjoy plenty of large audience music too, and even some medium size.
If I recall correctly this 2-fer was the only way to get Luis Gasca’s Little Giant on cd at the time. I actually have never listened to the Ira Sullivan disc but should. Was worth it just to hear Joe Henderson play on Afro Blue and Motherless Child. Luis and Joe partnered a lot in the early 70s. Joe plays on For Those Who Chant and Born to Love You and Luis plays on Joe’s Canyon Lady and maybe even another Milestone album.
On a trip to Ray's the other week I caught sight of this in the racks...
...and now have an urge to pick up more Silkheart recordings. I only have this and Dennis Gonzalez Namesake so have some work to do.
Christian McBride Trio - Live At The Village Vanguard (Mack Avenue Records MAC-1099)
Extremely enjoyable if only for the performance of McBride on bass and Christian Sands on piano who is amazing.
Coltrane* – Live At Birdland
Impulse! – AS-50
Vinyl, LP, Album, Stereo
Nat Birchall Quartet "The Storyteller"
