    Re: Today's Jazz Playlist

    while this is certainly low-key (late-nite) listening, it is anything but background music ... very interesting and engaging. i will be exploring more from this artist and trio.

    Re: Today's Jazz Playlist

    nice cerebral rendering of some surf, desert and other guitar classics by bill frisell. almost positive it is an all analog recording as it was recorded at flora recording & playback in portland, OR ...and the vinyl is still available if you search around.

    brilliant album art:

    Re: Today's Jazz Playlist

    What a great morning listen.


    "By 1967, bossa nova had become quite popular within jazz and traditional pop audiences, yet Frank Sinatra hadn't attempted any Brazil-influenced material. Sinatra decided to record a full-fledged bossa nova album with the genre's leading composer, Antonio Carlos Jobim. Arranged by Claus Ogerman and featuring Jobim on guitar and backing vocals, Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim concentrated on Jobim's originals, adding three American classics -- "Baubles, Bangles and Beads," "Change Partners," and "I Concentrate on You" -- that were rearranged to suit bossa nova conventions. The result was a subdued, quiet album that used the Latin rhythms as a foundation, not as a focal point. Supported by a relaxed, sympathetic arrangement of muted brass, simmering percussion, soft strings, and Jobim's lilting guitar, Sinatra turns in an especially noteworthy performance; he has never sounded so subtle, underplaying every line he delivers and showcasing vocal techniques that he never had displayed before. Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim doesn't reveal its pleasures immediately; the album is too textured and understated to be fully appreciated within one listen. After a few plays, the album begins to slowly work its way underneath a listener's skin, and it emerges as one of his most rewarding albums of the '60s."



    Frank Sinatra – vocal
    Antônio Carlos Jobim – piano, acoustic guitar, backing vocals
    Claus Ogerman – arranger, conductor
    Dom Um Romão – drums
    Colin Bailey - drums I Concentrate On You, Baubles Bangles And Beads, Change Partners, Dindi
    Al Viola – electric guitar
    Jose Marino – doublebass

    Today's Jazz Playlist

    Thank you for posting, Dan. Just the right entry into a lazy Saturday with a pre-selection Today's Jazz Playlist.

    My favs so far are the Dave Weckl, Gary Bartz, and Vijay Iver albums.

    The Dave Weckl Band sounds very much like the Rippingtons in the naughties. But he’s more likely to have influenced them with his work with Chick Corea in the eighties, than the other way round. I also hear some Omar Hakim in his style, e.g. on Sting’s Bring On The Night, and of course before that with Weather Report.

    Re: Today's Jazz Playlist

    Amazing album. So much soul on this Riverside label recording. Chet playing trumpet with alto flautist Herbie Mann, baritone saxophonist Pepper Adams, pianist Bill Evans, guitarist Kenny Burrell, bassist Paul Chambers, and either Connie Kay or Philly Joe Jones playing drums. All ballads with Hard Bop and Cool Jazz flavor.

    I had to look up what Riverside meant.
    Most of my jazz I stream. I have maybe 10 records I like. Maybe 6 x 15ips tapes. Probably around 20 album I stream.

    Re: Today's Jazz Playlist

    Coleman Hawkins - tenor saxophone
    Ronnell Bright - piano
    Kenny Burrell - guitar
    Ron Carter - bass

    Re: Today's Jazz Playlist

    "At the Newport Jazz Festival in 1955, Davis performed the song "'Round Midnight" as part of an all-star jam session, with the song's composer Thelonious Monk, along with Connie Kay and Percy Heath of the Modern Jazz Quartet, Zoot Sims, and Gerry Mulligan. Davis's solo received a positive reception from many jazz fans and critics. His response to this performance was typically laconic: "What are they talking about? I just played the way I always play." George Avakian of Columbia Records was in the audience, and his brother Aram persuaded him that he ought to sign Davis to the label.

    Davis signed with Columbia and formed his "first great quintet" with John Coltrane on saxophone. 'Round About Midnight was his first album for the label. He was still under contract to Prestige, but he had an agreement that he could record material for Columbia to release after the expiration of his Prestige contract.

    Recording took place at Columbia studios; the first session was on October 26, 1955 at Studio D, during which the track "Ah-Leu-Cha" was recorded with three numbers that did not appear on the album. This is the first studio recording of the quintet. The remainder of the album was recorded during sessions on June 5, 1956 ("Dear Old Stockholm", "Bye Bye Blackbird" and "Tadd's Delight") and September 10, 1956 ("All of You" and the titular "'Round Midnight") at Columbia's 30th Street Studio. During the same period, the Miles Davis Quintet was also recording sessions to fulfill its contract with Prestige."

    The Distance -- Michael Formanek/Ensemble Kolussus -- live Euro big band jam from ECM. A little uneven overall, but Formanek lays down some great bass. Some of my favorite Mary Halvorsen riffs. Don't know if the engineer played around with the phase or what, but there's so much hall ambience in some setups this can sound like a multichannel recording.

    Be afraid. Very afraid. Aarsett has been on the Euro scene for at least a couple decades, often as session player, occasionally as leader. A lot of the work is quite mellow -- for example, The Height of the Reeds with Arve Henriksen is good for late-nite snoozing. If you sleep through this, someone should be calling an ambulance.

    Re: Today's Jazz Playlist

    Jazz piano afternoon ... Never would have discovered any of these musicians without the streaming services, but once I found them I added quite a bit from their discogs to my favorites/purchases.

    Starting with the most straight-forward -- Cyrus Chessnut -- not blazing any trails, but consistently enjoyable music. This one has the added bonus of Christian McBride


    A bit further afield -- John Law and his Art of Sound band/project. Law tends to draw from classical, jazz, etc. -- musical polymath


    Another great streaming discovery -- Aaron Diehl -- this particular album, as the title implies, is a wide-ranging meander through modern jazz approaches


    Finally (for now) -- Kenny Werner. This one features Jack DeJohnette and Dave Holland -- Werner has played with a who's-who of modern jazz masters over his long career. I think of him as typical of the heady, cool, NY style...

    Ray Brown/ This is Ray Brown, not the original out-of-print Verve release. Hence, not the best SQ. But it might be, that this will sound better though, when I receive my new phono pre with a mono switch.

    The combo reads like a who’s who of Jazz Greats: Ray Brown, Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, Osie Johnson, Jerome Richardson.

    Another contemporary European jazz pianist -- Marcin Wasilewski. Like just about everything he's had a hand in, but particularly drawn to his early work with Simple Acoustic Trio (Tomasz Stanko would eventually snap the trio up to form his quartet).

    Great music!!!
    It would be great if folks could also share a link to a mainstream music service like Spotify (I don’t consider Tidal or Qobuz mainstream for obvious reasons). Thanks!!
