    Yeah, but if there is a common theme to this thread, it's "Fuck Weather Report."

    I really fucking love "Moment's Notice." Today my dumb ass finally got a copy of Blue Train for myself and I'm listening to "Moment's Notice" for the fourth time today right now. Which, again, is another really fun song that's more substantial than something like "Blue Rondo a la Turk."

    Our saxaphone player learnt that tune, and would call it out at this regular gig we had every once and a while. That was fine, then we had the piano player learn it inside out.
    So each night we'd run through that sonnavabitch. It's a pain to play.

    It seems every third run through i'd get the "Bass solo?" line. Each time the response was "No way man, i'm not earning enough to try that bastard tonight."

    So I was in our school music library (where I get a lot of my music) looking for a jazz CD that has Eddie Daniels, because I'm starting to play jazz and I've been playing clarinet for eight years (although I'm starting alto sax today!). Not surprisingly, they have none of his solo work and only three albums that feature him. The one that looks like it will most prominently feature his work is an album by some Arturo Sandoval. I listened to two tracks, one of which was "Moment's Notice."

    SO

    FUCKING

    BAD


    Worst professionally recorded jazz I've ever heard. Just awful stuff. And I haven't even heard Eddie Daniels on a track yet. I'm going to delete all the tracks that don't include him ASAP.

    Also, the other day our janitor gave me Winelight by Grover Washington Jr. (in exchange for the new Kweli & Madlib, which is no longer free btw), which was labeled as a jazz album. Almost all of the songs are pretty bad and he's not a good improviser, but I didn't realize that was the album with the original version of "Just the Two of Us," which is really more R&B but is so good (except the sax solo. The steel drum solo by some random session player is much better.).

    Currently grooving to "On the Corner/New York Girl/Thinkin' Of One Thing And Doin' Another/Vote For Miles" off On the Corner.

    "Dr. J" off of Winelight is a classic Marcus Miller bass groove.

    Oh yeah, that was a good bass line. Super boring melody though, if I'm remembering correctly.

    Anybody listen to Brad Mehldau? I got The Art of the Trio Part 3 the other day and it's pretty cool, but I don't understand what the big deal is.

    I play sax. But I don't have anyone to play with around here, so I don't get to jam.

    I'm really into the first Miles Davis quintet lately. Especially Cookin'.

    Tenor Sax, although I haven't played in a jazz band in... three years? Kinda miss it, thinking about going down to Beale one Saturday and making some shit up, see if I make any money. Only reason I haven't done so yet is my fear of getting shanked.

    I live in Memphis. Where Beale Street is. And there are lots of people who improv stuff on street corners, and sometimes people give them money. I am considering doing so.

    That stuff is the buisness. I've been thinking about the box set. Anyone got it?

    Everyone who cares even a tiny bit about Sun Ra MUST see the documentary A joyful noise and then watch the movie Space is the place. Man i like that guy... I have some 60+ albums of him haha, might be a little overboard.

    Anyway, just wandered in to this thread to see if someone could give me some tips on Dizzy Gillespie? I have neglected him far too long and need to buy some asap.

    I've been listening to the Radiolarians series, by Medeski, Martin & Wood, recently. Part III just came out and it's probably the best of them all. Lots of cool stuff going on. Here's a review and one of the tracks.
    http://citizendick.org/2009/07/30/medeski-martin-wood-radiolarians-iii-album-review/

    Avishai Cohen(bass player; there's a trumpet player that goes by the same name) has been getting a lot of play time, as well. I have Continuo and Gently Disturbed, which has some rich harmony on top of interesting rhythms. Powerful music.

    I've also been enjoying McCoy Tyner's recent Quartet recording. Joe Lovano's great on it and McCoy is just fantastic.
    The guys in my av and sig, Jaki Byard and Lee Morgan, have a lot of good recordings. Check out Jaki's solo stuff.

    Who are some newer people I should check out? Most of my collection comes from the 50's-60's.

    Can....can we discuss blues?

    I just picked up a harmonica about 3 weeks ago and I've been trying to learn some blues on it.

    No, I am not really communist. Yes, it is weird that I use this name.
