The above list should make for some very fine listening. I haven't heard the new Charles Lloyd, could you grace us with a few words about it, please?

I'll post a list of my own within a few days.

And very right you are!!! I just picked up Rabo de Nube and what a fantastic recording it is. It sounds from just my first few listens that Jason Moran lifts the entire ensemble up to new and higher levels of creativity. What an inspired choice of sidemen. This is one of those recordings that answers the question "I wonder what "X" would sound like playing with "Y"?" And that answer is "better than I could have ever imagined".

Re: In Heavy Rotation

Do you remember a Lloyd album: Forest Flower? It was his hippy trippy period. Very cool in the 60's! I recall Jack DeJohnette on drums, too. They actually toured with Jethro Tull when they were doing the Aqualung tour. All the bandmates (Lloyd's) sat in a circle on rugs with candles and incense burning. Unfortunately, the rowdy, stoned rock fans were too anxious to hear Tull and did not give them their due. But a great period in time, that's for sure.

I saw that tour, represented the fans you describe, and most certianly do not remember Charles Lloyd as the opening act. Tull was awesome though.

Thank you for pointing out my error!
I try V hard to ensure the accuracy of the info I post, however, I made a big Boo Boo!

The last thing I ever want to do is be responsible for posting incorrect info on the this or any other site.

Ron Carter is NOT on the Marsalis LP. It is in fact Charnett Moffett.

Carter was on a different album I bought this weekend, and in my excitement and weekend level of alcohol consumption, I got the LP

Thanks for reviving the thread. Here's a few....

I used to have the Lee Ritenour "RIT" album a long time ago. What made it special was the fact it was a Japan release on 100% virgin vinyl. I wish I still had it. Great album with the vocals of Eric Tagg and Bill Champlin with a whole host of class A session musicians.

You guys should give a listen to Herbie Hancock's "The Imagine Project". World jazz of the finest sort, and extremely well recorded and mastered. Close to the sound of 24/96

Quite right! Another winner from Herbie like 2007's "River: The Joni Letters", although the new has a less "jazz" feel and a more "world music" feel to it. Regardless of how one chooses to label it, it's still great music.

Thats awesome JA. If you like Michael Hedges, I would highly recommend Andy McKee. Very similar stylings and Andy plays the harp guitar just as well as Michael did. R.I.P.

Just one quick question - in what parallel universe are the Moody Blues considered even remotely related to jazz? Music, yes (just barely) but jazz, no way by any possible standard.

With that in mind try listening to this:

William Parker Organ Quartet - Uncle Joe's Spirit House

I wish I'd bought that before they sold out. I'll keep an eye out for a used set.

I've decided to get myself the Basie 50's box for Christmas. That should help keep the house warm this winter.

What I find funny about my jazz listening habits and preferences is that while I thoroughly enjoy listening to swing jazz, either small group or big band, I only really enjoy that type of jazz when it's being played by the original musicians. In other words, Roy Eldridge or Lester Young or Ben Webster I can listen to but current musicians playing swing jazz, such as Scott Hamilton, bore my to tears. And it gets even complicated. For example I can take or leave Randy Standke when he's playing straight ahead swing jazz, which he does very well, but I really enjoy his playing when he moves away from straight ahead swing jazz.

In any event Roy Eldridge just smokes!!

My wife loves Coltrane above all others, so we decided to see if any of the alternate takes were "better" than the originally released versions.

In this case, habit may have played a part, because we preferred the versions we had been listening to to the alternate takes.

And this one:

Absolutely!!!

Many years ago (25 years+) the then very young WBGO-FM, a jazz radio station located in Newark, NJ, was running a contest where they were giving away the 18 LP box set of Bill Evans - The Complete Riverside Recordings (which includes the Village Vanguard sessions. You had to send in a postcard and then every morning they would pick one postcard per hour and the person named on the postcard had until the end of the hour to call in and claim their prize.

I diligently sent in about 10 postcards and declared to my wife and friends that the box set would soon part of my record collection. And would you believe the very first postcard picked the first hour of the first day of the contest belonged to yours truly. The on air DJ, who was hoping to use the contest to keep his listeners glued to the radio until the winner was selected several hours and days into the contest, was not too pleased that the first name called won the damn contest but I was ecstatic!

Classic Bill Evans in glorious full analog sound!

I listen to WBGO on and off - mostly off during the daylight hours when they tend to go with a very heavy dose of vocals. Once it gets dark out WBGO goes back to playing a better balance of instrumentals and vocals but still nothing outside of the mainstream.

For a better picture of the full scope of jazz I listen to WKCR-FM which is also out of the NYC area and also streams to the internet.

WKCR-FM

This Sunday 11/21 WKCR will feature the annual, day long Coleman Hawkins Birthday Broadcast. Now that's what jazz is all about!
