    Kind of on a Bill Evans kick this weekend. This should irritate my wife as much as when I go on a Stones kick.

    High assay piano trio music from Joachim Kuhn's cd "From Time To Time Free", on CMP.Kuhn on piano, J.F.Jenny-Clark on double bass, Daniel Humair on drums.The tune is a cover of Coltrane's "Expression".Enjoy.

    Didn't know Bill Laswell remixed this one.. now I do.
    Sounds much more earfriendly than my LP does.

    Thanks - I found it too, but I'm not sure I get it:
    Was this never at legit album, and is it not available at all (second hand) unless for a trillion bucks?
    Nice freaky jack-bruce-bassolo on it of the roaring kind.

    Unreleased tracks, cool! I used to have it on vinyl. I restocked "Emergency!" on CD, but not this one. I love the way McLaughlin played in those days!

    Listening to that Tony Williams Lifetime album refreshed my memory of that Chick Corea tune that seems to have a different title with every version. Here, it's called "To Whom it May Concern," but on McLaughlin's My Goal's Beyond, it was called "Waltz For Bill Evans" and on Joe Farrell's Quartet album, it's called "Song of the Wind." Every version is pretty radically different, but a great tune is a great tune!

    This tune is yet another reason to hope that one day, soon, the Ornette Coleman record, Crisis will be reissued(for the first time on cd).This tune, imo, is magnificent.Crisis was recorded live at New York University in 1969 and released on Impulse.From what i've heard over the years, Ornette owns the rights and masters to Crisis.

    Give this a listen.I hope you dig it.

    Yesterday as I was driving my wife home from work, I turned on the radio and heard Coltrane playing "Blue Train." You know, as much as I love his '60s work on the "Impulse!" label, I think I enjoy his hard bop period the most... and especially the way he played when he was just beginning to transition between that and his more free modal period. I can't remember if I've posted this video elsewhere on this thread, but if I did, sorry; it's just that it's a great example of what I'm talking about. It's also interesting to hear him, Stan Getz and Oscar Peterson playing together; I'm not sure they ever did it before or since.

    Michael Brecker's swan song, "Pilgrimage" has been in my car stereo for the past 2 weeks. I love it! Can't believe he's been gone for 8 years already.

    Featuring Jack DeJohnette, John Patitucci, Pat Metheny and piano duties split between Herbie Hancock and Brad Mehldau.

    Is this really OOP? Amazon had only used copies (one "new" copy from the Ukraine)

    Abstract Logix has it. I'm not that familiar with online stores, but it can't be OOP! Can it?

    edit: The Jazz Record Mart in Chicago has it for $12

    I'm not Brecker's biggest fan but I dig him on these dates:

    Couldn't find any online samples but have been digging this a lot lately:



    1972 LP with two side-long tracks, finally re-issued on CD late last year. (There was a CD-R release in the mid-90s which I am assuming was a boot.)

    I always respect your opinion even when I don't agree with it, Mo, but I don't understand how you can dig MB on those dates, but not on others. It's not like there's a drastic fluctuation in quality on anything he plays on. When he played on that Horace Silver date, he was 21 years old and though he sounds great on it, his style wasn't fully formed yet; he doesn't weave in and out of the changes like he normally does. I might not have figured out it was him on my own, though I would've thought it was somebody who was influenced by him. But on those other tracks, he sounds very much like the Michael Brecker so many jazz fans are familiar with. It's possible to burn out on anybody's signature sound if you're over exposed to it... and Brecker has certainly been recorded quite a bit. Is that it? Just trying to understand.

    BTW, that was a nice arrangement of Shorter's "Yes or No." I play a jazz gig once a month and I called that tune the last time I did it; always loved it but hadn't played it in a while.

    You have no idea. I love the woman but our musical tastes are miles upon miles apart. She was the 70s girl with the all-in-one stereo in her dorm, a James Taylor poster on the wall, more 45s than albums (I mean a LOT of 45s), and Seals & Crofts playing quietly in the background. Maybe turning it up a little for "Summer Breeze". On occasion she has been known to play the stereo loud but she prefers music as a background, the less the guitar distortion or guitar solos the better. Loved all that dance boy-band crap from the late 90s, sixties folk music, hates anything with "too many notes". She has been a trouper and gone with me to Rush a few times, some blues shows. But then I've seen James Fucking Taylor so many times I've lost track.
