Tom Harrell - Art of Rhythm (1995)

Are you a paid hitman for the CIA in the mid 90s? Do you solve troubles from disobedient governments by triggering coups? Do you enjoy stretching in the shade at your colonial styled hacienda in Costa Rica after an exausting politician assasination in Nicaragua? Does your local 24 y/o girlfriend hate jazz but has great legs and likes to dance for you?

Then look no further my friend. I have a wonderful jazz album to complete your experience.

No bossa nova or a boring trumpet for you sir. Tropical sweet sour jazz played with a Flügelhorn awaits you in the 64 mins of gentle head bopping and toe wiggling, relaxing as the rhythm slowly moves you. Time to completely forget about your laborsome work and remember how great the sunny and salty Pacific feels.

Some of you may know this is one of my albums favourite (if not the one) of the year.

Kamasi Washington - Heaven and Earth

Robert Glasper - Covered: The Robert Glasper Trio Recorded Live at Capitol Studios

MI0003875540.jpg?partner=allrovi.com

"Pianist Robert Glasper was Blue Note's big discovery of 2005, a young player whose music fit into jazz's modern mainstream yet was open to the influences of R&B and hip-hop, both of which he had performed previously." Everyone should listen to Robert Glasper's Canvas and In My Element, but before anything else, listen to this beautiful performance. Or better yet, see it.

Have a wonderful evening gents. :^

I put this on the Jazz Newbie thread, but it belongs here,

More of my "not quite pure" series I think.

A couple from 1964 that should be on the list I think are: Eric Dolphy - Out to Lunch and Andrew Hill - Point of Departure.

Also Charles Mingus - The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady seems to missing and Thelonius Monk - Brilliant Corners.

I would also add; Zoot Sims - and the Gershwin Brothers, Hank Mobley - Soul Station and Wynton Marsalis - Black Codes.

Pat Metheny - The Way Up is worth a try.

Charles Mingus - The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady :nerves::x I freakin love that stuff. 

The 11-piece group rehearsed the original score during a Village Vanguard engagement, where Mingus allowed the players to mold the music further; in the studio, however, his exacting perfectionism made The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady the first jazz album to rely on overdubbing technology. The result is one of the high-water marks for avant-garde jazz in the '60s and arguably Mingus' most brilliant moment.

Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet - Jersey (2017)

MI0004361738.jpg?partner=allrovi.com

Straight from the bowels of The Bunker Studio in Brooklyn, NY: Fabian Almazan hammering the piano, Chris Morrissey plucking the bass, Mark Guiliana smacking the drums and Jason Rigby blowing the sax.

In my book an absolutely stellar album. Packed with energy and anticipation, feeling contemporary but not lost in the fog like I find with many Scandinavian jazz trio-quart-quint-et counterparts. Feels traditional at the same time, not trying to prove itself, eloquent yet powerful. And if you know your Buddy Rich, you can tell this is an East coast drummer's quartet. It's very 'Murrican, in a good way. 

Small trivia: Some of you may know Mark as Gretchen Parlato's husband. (lucky dog)

- Enough rambling, Vlad. We get it. You like it. 

- Yep. I do.

inter-are is the album opening. Try it.

On Mingus recently picked up a copy of the clown.
