Thats not it but that is a sick song . The one I'm thinking of is a kind of weird. Somewhat dissonant sounds and I feel like it was the 2nd track on the album it was on

Edit: I'm looking at the jack Johnson album on YouTube. I've never heard it but its awesome

I wouldn't think of it as weird, but the song "John McLaughlin" features the electric guitar work of John McLaughlin on the Bitches Brew album.

Re: Jazz: America's Music

Here's a little MP3 of a band me and a few friends have recently started up. We are very "inspired" by Root70 and this track defo shares that vibe. You don't have to download the mp3, can listen on the site.

Re: Jazz: America's Music

I had the privilege of seeing Chick Corea, John Mclaughlin, Kenny Garrett, John Pattitucci, and Brian Blade play a set at Blue Note a few weeks ago. I found youtube footage of the highlight of the show with Kenny doing his best Pharoah sanders impression and brian blade is just goddamn ridiculous.

It starts a little slow but really kicks into overdrive around the 5 minute mark.....pretty incredible stuff.

I found my old vinyl copy from the 70's and this is record 2 side 1 (side3) song number 2. This may be the song of which you are thinking, Francis.

Also, I'm only about halfway through this album but I can already highly recommend it: http://www.amazon.com/Good-Feeling-C.../dp/B005H1SG76

Can't find any YouTubes unfortunately so I'll post this instead:

Been listening to some Kenny Burrell lately. I'd highly recommend it, great stuff.

Re: Jazz: America's Music

While listening to a Bill Evans song on Pandora internet radio, I curiously clicked on the artist information tab. To my surprise their was no listing for Mr. Evans. This seems to be a glaring omission considering that Pandora contains exhaustive biographies for artists of much lesser reknown.

Re: Jazz: America's Music

I feel like I owe this forum a thank you for this thread, this thread is the reason I'm currently listening to Sonny Clark, despite I think him not being mentioned, anyway this seems glorious,



And my very recent listening which was mentioned here and is one of my favourite tracks on an album I actually felt my life was richer for having heard.



The really exciting thing is that I've managed to scratch the surface of a music that has a 70+ year history. I really do feel fortunate to have found this thread a few months ago when I had amazon vouchers to punt.

Music is a universal language. Your brain does not have the neural pathways to interpret jazz yet. It is like trying to understand advanced Spanish when you know only three words. It is completely normal and the reason why jazz is not a popular music form. When I first started really getting into music I thought jazz sounded like random noise, but now I love it more than any other music type. Takes time to appreciate, but well worth it

Re: Jazz: America's Music

The Rudy Van Gelder remaster series is great. I have a few of these and plan on getting many more. Below is a link to amazon where at least 46 classic jazz albums are available. Rudy was a sound/recording engineer and made many of the classic jazz albums in the 50's and 60's, and was associated with the Blue Note and Prestige and Savory record labels. He worked with the best and it shows in this series.

"Hang Gliding" by Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra. Really love the way this builds at the beginning.

Tomorrow night I will be seeing the Robert Glasper Experiment in Edmonton. Any fans here? (I'm a beebop fan myself, but I'm still hoping for a good show!)

Robert Glasper covers Radiohead's Everything In It's Right Place and Maiden Voyage. Drummer is sick good.

Check out Wynton Marsalis playing some Count Basie at Lincoln Center. Great stuff here.

Re: Jazz: America's Music

Mose Allison, recorded in 1958 I think. A great cover of an old standard:
Don't Get Around Much Anymore

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNb_-czbFes


Chet Baker (that great "off key" jazz voice, a male Billie Holiday): Their Will Never be Another You.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eqlmdw7XjtA


Speaking of Billie Holiday, Here is a great one - Lover Come Back to Me

Re: Jazz: America's Music

Felt like bumping this one, as I feel I need to start listening to more jazz in order to educate myself as a musician. So while I've been trying to do my school project, instead of listening to my normal Spotify playlist, I put on some Miles Davis. Feel free to give me recommendations on where to continue this path. FWIW, I'm a pianist, so good pianists always interest me.

Jab, given your history and taste, plus some of the stuff you have posted, get some Bill Evans, especially the stuff with Scottie LaFaro on bass. Kind of cliched to cite them, but Waltz for Debbie and Sunday at the Village Vanguard earn their status.

Two of my favorites are Hampton Hawes, and Wynton Kelly. Hamp is funky as a bag full of ***holes, and Wynton (who often gets overlooked) swings no less hard. Wynton's album Kelly Blue is a personal favorite.
