Certainly looks like it... fingers crossed.
Dizzy Reece - Soundin' Off (Blue Note/Analogue Productions CBNJ-84033 SA)
Continuing with the Blue Note groove.
I'm not really a big fusion guy, but maybe Sonny Sharrock's Seize the Rainbow and Highlife count?
John Coltrane - A Love Supreme (AP SACD)
What a sad story , when you think about parts of her life... She was a fabulous guitarist.
The Rise and Decline of Guitarist Emily Remler
Larry Coryell/Emily Remler - Together ((Concord Jazz CCD-4289)
Two guitar players at the top of their form. Very good.
i found this record a while back at a shop in Montana. Didn’t recognize any of the artists at the time, but noticed that Hentoff wrote the liner notes. Enjoyable record collecting is the sum of lots of context clues.. anyways, the shop owner told me about how Remler had an extended inter-mountain west tour in the 80’s, which included a three night stint in neighboring Butte. That band was comprised of the then voice of Yellowstone Public Radio Jazz on drums and local Bozeman legend Kelly Roberti on bass. Roberti was an accomplished session musician and jazz player but more important to his legacy was his years long and very popular Jazz Appreciation classes at the Bozeman Public Library. Anyways, even tho he doesn’t appear on wax with Emily, I’ve sought out all her records
NP Lou Donaldson - LD + 3 (Blue Note) Audiowave. XRCD
Really nice sound on these Audiowave discs. Too bad they were shortlived.
Dicovery DS-812 - Howard Roberts "Turning To Spring" - rec. 1979 - Engineer: Jonathan Porath
Bud Shank & Bill Perkins
Love your collection, but the order of the records is driving me nuts.
Please put all your Coltrane records together. There's one from Gil Evans on the far right and another one lost in the center...
Rearrange your impulse records and send us a new pic for confirmation.
The final five that have been listed forever seem really to be coming out soon.
Haarlem, but the country is so small I can step on my bike and ride to Amsterdam to go shopping, etc.
Myra Melford For the Love of Fire and Water (RogueArt)
Newly arrived from Jazz Messengers, Barcelona.
Bud Shank & Claude Williamson Quartet
Listened to The Great Concert of Charles Mingus.
A real masterpiece, an album that celebrates the state of grace of one of the powerful lineups of modern jazz though without Johnny Coles on trumpet stopped by illness.
A desert island album to me.
The French release of 2003 on double cd sounds good.
The second disc is maybe slightly finest featuring Sophisticated Lady, Parkeriana and Meditations On Integration where score and improvisations of the soloists find the best synthesis.
Bud Shank & Shorty Rogers
For @Tribute, in todays JazzWax.
Mini-Doc: Meredith d'Ambrosio, 1988
I love the sound of late 80s fusion, I might have a couple recs for you:
UZEB World Tour 90
This is my favorite album of this genre in this era. You've got that slick production, insane musicianship and riffs that could only come out of this music. Top shelf late 80s early 90s fusion.
If you aren'T familiar you should also be checking out Allan Holdsworth's records from that time.
Allan Holdsworth - Sand
this one is by far he weirdest, and I love it. Blistering playing from everyone involved, and you'll get a healthy dose of late 80s production values.
Also check out the Return of the Brecker Brothers (with Mike Stern and Dennis Chambers), and this one:
steps ahead - magnetic
Sonny Simmons - Burning Spirits
Bud Shank: Jazz In Hollywood
Watched this last night. It was organized in a strange way, if at all. It seemed like random interviews thrown together with his origins tacked on at the end. That said, I could watch another two hours of Paul Motian being Paul Motian. My only run-in with Paul was in the mid 90s when he was promoting one of his trio albums on JMT. He came into the HMV on 72nd and Broadway with a roll of posters under his arm and asked for a ladder to hang them. We told him they had to be mounted first so he took off and had them mounted then came back to put them up himself. You didn't see many artists of his status doing their own promotions. He had the energy of a 20 year old.
I also felt incredibly stupid for not knowing that he played Woodstock with Arlo...or played with Arlo at all. Not sure how I never knew that.
I'm curious based on the pic why two copies of A Love Supreme stereo vinyl.
Is that the AP45 + AP33?
NP: Eddy Louiss - Orgue (American Records 1972 LP)
Bass – Guy Pedersen (tracks: A1, B1)
Drums – Kenny Clarke
Guitar – Jimmy Gourley
Organ – Eddy Louiss
The first of two volumes of organist Louiss' quartet date of le soul jazz.
Although some of my friends told me I should have married Meredith years before that 1988 documentary, I did talk to her about singing at my wedding (at the time of the documentary)
She told me that she would break her rule of never performing at weddings to perform at mine.
But I decided it would be a bad idea because my attention would be on her performance.
Those same friends told me that was a smart move.
I think being right half of the time is not a bad ratio.
That's better than Babe Ruth could do.
