I'm finding my ear fatigued after long rehearsals.
Fred Van Hoves "Passing Waves" Has anyone else heard it?
Jim Galloway's Wee Big Band - Blue Reverie. Sackville SKCD2-2068
Yes, I'm on it. I just wanted to see if it came out any good.
Sam Kinison, Breaking the Rules.
Ted Hogarth Collective - Misconception
Duke Ellington: The Blanton-Webster Band.
Practically every track on this 3 disc set is a masterpiece!
Context would be helpful here guys. Why do you like the music you're listening to. ("I've always fancied myself a potential killer kazu player.")
Merlin, sold. I just ordered the Duke collection you referenced. Put out in 1990 and now just available through second-hand shops; what's that about???
It's definitely a desert island disc in my books.
I'm looking for someone to take lessons with and Ted is on the short list of people to check out. He has the Mulligan Mosiacs Big Band and Sheryl and I are probably going to go to their next gig.
Well, the Mai Yamane piece I listed I like because it's seriously kewl. You need to listen to it. I left you a link.
It's got everything I like: the singer's putting her soul into the music and you can hear it. It's got a good theme. The words make sense (mostly; remember she's Japanese and singing English -- and you really can't tell this from the song). Really kewl beat. I like bluesey. It *helps* if you've seen the anime, Cowboy Bebop, but isn't required.
I'm also eclectic in my musical tastes. Or, in the words of B. Katt, "Highly intergalactic."
Sam Kinison? If you have to ask ... you didn't live through the 80's.
Serge Chaloff - Blue Serge
I'm listening to him today because man cannot live by Mulligan alone. I have a great Bob Gordon CD at the house that my wife got me for my birthday that I also have been enjoying. Bob Gordon is a seriously underrated Bari player who died in the 1950's. He had a great West Coast cool thing going.
Annie Lennox - Medusa.
It's her album of cover tunes. Some of them surpass the originals, IMO.
I think Annie Lenox is an amazing musician. Her vocal style is distinctive and a joy to listen to.
Today was a pop music day. Mostly Jackson Browne.
At least six versions of Motem Swing.
The disc in my car right at the moment is Stanley Turrentine's "More than a mood".
I'm listening to more random anime theme music. At the moment, I'm listening to teh theme from Hellsing. It's called "World without Logos" (the YouTube is the album version).
No, it's not in English. No, it's not in Japanese.
It's got a nice beat AND you could dance to it. I'd give it about a 9.
Quincy Jones' Basie and Beyond; the whole CD is tasty.
On Mother's Day, we had a family gathering at our house. For the youngsters, I played a recording of Willie Nelson singing I'M MY OWN GRANDPA.
For my oldest daughter who was going to Baltimore the next day on business, I played four versions of the tune BALTIMORE (Fletcher Henderson, Bix 'n' Tram, The Yankee Rhythm Kings, and Uptown Lowdown Jazz band - Paul Woltz sang the words, too). DAVE
Right now at the office I've got the LA 24 hour jazz station streaming away.........
