    I agree with @Bobby Boogaloo : hip hop is an extension of jazz. In that it comes from the house party/dance hall/community center scene in New York, and is an accessible form of black American cultural expression, one might even call it a modern-day form of jazz (not the modern-day form of jazz, as there are many jazz scenes, from the streets of New Orleans to Los Angeles to London, to the repertories of New York and Boston, and so on.

    Those Blue Note-style hip hop covers are cool, but many are nearly direct lifts of the original designs. Check out my cousin's work, an homage to Reid Miles of original designs: Wu-Note — Logan Mills Walters

    Speaking of bassist led albums, I'm listening to the new debut from Harish Raghavan Calls for Action on Quobuz. I'm impressed enough that I just ordered the 2xLP from Bandcamp. If you're interested (and it has Joel Ross on it, so how could you not be) I suggest not snoozing: the vinyl is limited to 300 copies. A CD and/or FLAC download is also on offer.

    Picked up a CD copy of Art Blakey's Indestructible for £8. Over the moon with that as I've been after it for ages.

    This 1989 cd sounds pretty good, but I wish there was a recent remaster as it's a great session and could sound better.

    It includes the song I wanted to hear, the Ellington tune "Just a Lucky So and So." I was wanting to hear that today, I'm that lucky bastard and know it.

    Also I put on Duke Ellington "And his Mother Called Him Bill." This week I got news that my sister's husband's lymphoma seems to have returned after 11 years. . . . Sad news and made me think of "Blood Count."

    I read it happened on another thread, I'm sorry for you. I quit the SHF for close to a year because of all the negativity and the bad manners that's spreading on most threads. I've had enough. I came back for this thread only. First, it gives me the possibility (privilege?) to exchange about jazz music with passionate and kind persons. Second, there's a respect among us here that I find essential and that I appreciate very much. I have very little interest about participating or even just reading what's elsewhere on the Forum.

    First, never heard of this until a week ago as I was looking for other Strata East reissues that I might like. Second, this music and the cover were way ahead of its time. Third, ties into @Bobby Boogaloo and others comments about hip hop and jazz as the bass line on the title track is mega sampled. If you like funky bass get some of this. Piano is pretty sweet too. Side 2 with title song and Umoja Suite I could listen to for hours.

    Very cool sonic textures and effects pedals courtesy of Jackson- the six stringer, not the king of pop!

    So to show my love for the bass player led group, here is Cecil McBee’s album for Strata East. First track is a bass solo with some arco playing, although I read it is remixed in each speaker channel. More wonderful advanced music. My favorites are the title track and Tulsa Black.

    “Collaboration” was produced by the late Boxman Koyama and engineer by Tom Lazarus. Sounds good indeed.
    This is a labor of love.

    95% of the time I'm on this thread only, but sometimes I want to explore what else is going on in SHF. Well... maybe I shouldn't.

    Thanks for the link, I voted, but not for the Turrentine, I havn’t heard it. I’m sure it’s fine. Many people made mountains out of mole hills about 50+ year old tapes. I voted for Face to Face, Chant, Minor Move and Contours.

    Nice picks — those are excellent, as are them all, in my opinion.

    Ornette Coleman - At The Golden Circle

    Been crazy busy lately, starting a new role at work and have been training my replacement in my existing role. It has been pretty exhausting, i'm a bit of an introvert so sitting and engaging with someone all day is exhausting to begin with, but also just feeling responsible for giving them a good start.

    Anyway, i was driving my wife's car today and there's no aux or bluetooth to plug my phone in so i was digging in to an old CD wallet and this was the only CD contained within that i felt like listening to. Magic stuff.
