    Haha! What's funny about that is that Mike and I recently made identical Wayside orders!

    I blame Wynton, what was the question?

    Very underrated band. Like so many of Steve's signings (in the greyzone between jazz/rock/contemporary) in the 2000s. More folks should get to hear them.

    Oh no, please, don't make more suggestions like this! It will get too expensive, I just had to buy that album. I love it!

    The Orchestre National de Jazz (currently directed by Olivier Benoît) has its way with minimalism :

    Live version of "Europa : Paris" (2014) :



    Live version of "Europa : Berlin" (2015)

    Any idea if this new ONJ material is on disc? I have several recordings from over the years.

    It is :
    http://www.amazon.fr/Europa-Orchestr...tional+de+jazz
    http://www.amazon.fr/Europa-Berlin-O...tional+de+jazz

    Good stuff, but nevertheless a far cry from the Claude Barthélemy golden period (1989-91) - not for the faint-hearted !
    http://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B005...dm_ws_sp_ps_dp [also available lossless on Qobuz ; CDs are oop]

    The ONJ, since it changes director every 2-3 years, produces mixed results... The ones I mention here would be my favourite.

    Over half of ECM production can be called "minimalist Jazz Rock", although I never heard this exact term.

    Anyone who likes the ONJ clips should also check Olivier Benoit's former band Circum Grand Orchestra

    http://www.circum-disc.com/category/...and-orchestra/

    *Their newest album "12" is done w/o Benoit (since he have left for ONJ) but still good.

    Yes, and also La Pieuvre on the same label.

    So since the thread started I've picked up

    Sha's Feckel - Greatest Hits
    Necks - Drive By
    Nik Bartsch Ronin - Llyria
    Ikarus - Echoes

    All great. I'm really digging The Necks, they may well become a bit of a compulsion for me, I think I'll be picking up a lot more of their stuff (already got Hanging Garden)

    DOn't forget Sonar, whose Static Motion on Cuneiform, is wonderful...as is Black Light, set for release next month.

    Oh I'm a huge Sonar fan, got everything they've released so far and eagerly awaiting the new one.

    An underrated epic. Not at all "jazz" (although the intro has that Coltrane / Mahavishnu / Köhntarkösz feel), but a subtle and coherent blend of new wave and minimalism, with a glorious multi-guitars sound.

    that's more a typical post-rock track, IMHO

    For anyone who'd like a more low-key complement to BLUE (also a great pick above), I'd highly recommend Spin Marvel. The processed trumpet gives a sort of Jon Hassell vibe, but it's its own different thing. Oh hey, looks like their second album is on sale at the moment.
