    I just came across this piece by Brad Mehldau considering the influence of Rush and Led Zeppelin on a piece he and his trio did and a somewhat "inside baseball" explanation of time meters and hemiolas which made my head spin after a while. I may have to reread a couple times just to comprehend some of it.

    Walt, as usual, great recomendation!


    From the NP thread:
    Some polish jazz, avant, folk ... , great álbum IMO.


    "After the group 1st rehearsals in 1968, I thought it's a paradox to play without drums, with a bassoon, and cello with hums and groans in bebop diminished fifths. At that time, the very sound combination of the bassoon, trombone, cello and bass made me happy and inspired me to make some musical tricks and jokes on the borderline of jazz and folk. I don't hesitate to write pieces in the spirit of Polish folk music, to draw original examples from the rich sources of folklore, Polish and European. Continuing our work in 1971, with some changes in instrumentation (alto sax, trombone, cello, bass and guitar), we realized that our sound resembles a folk band manned with modern jazz. However, I think that this is where our originality lies, and the lack of drums makes no difference to the soloists who can swing enough by themselves. (Andrzej Brzeski, Paradox leader)"

    Listening to Herbie Hancock - The Prisoner for the first time; awesome! Didn't see who's on it, but when Joe Henderson is playing, you just know who it is!

    Jimmy Giuffre on clarinet, Paul Bley on piano, Steve Swallow on double bass.Under Giuffre's leadership these three musicians made music that was a radical break from the Jazz past,while still proudly calling themselves jazz musicians.Free jazz meets chamber music.Music unlike anything being done at the time.This record,Flight, live in Bremen 1961 and a companion record, Emphasis, live in Stuttgart, from the same 1961 tour, were put out singly and on a 2 cd set by Hatology, alas, out of print for years.I have the 2 cd version and its,even after all these years, a totally contemporary listening experience.Here's Flight, imo, the slightly better of the two dates(mostly because Swallow's bass is more present in the recording/mix).

    Yeah, with Johnny Coles. The Prisoner and Speak Like A Child are the ones I reach for most often; hip(!) arrangements on both.

    Mike Taylor,British jazz pianist extraordinaire, dead at age 30 of apparent suicide,plagued by drugs and mental health issues,made two records that are both OOP on cd.This track is from his first,recorded in 1965 and released the next year.Titled Pendulum,it has Taylor on piano,Dave Tomlin on sax, Tony Reeves-bass and Jon Hiseman-drums.

    A classic of early British jazz.I just bought a copy from a friend of a friend,and i consider myself fortunate to have it.Here's the title track from Pendulum.

    Walt, that is my favorite Brit-jazz record, and there's tons of great ones out there!

    Mike Taylor's other record, Trio, with Jack Bruce/Ron Rubin on double bass and Jon Hiseman-drums, is also a corker.Another recent acquisition of mine(expensive).

    I had "Speak Like a Child" on vinyl (when I had a vinyl collection) and loved it; need to restock on CD! Apparently "The Prisoner" was the follow-up and it's almost like SLaC Part II. As much as I dig a majority of Herbie's albums, this may be my favorite period of his; very cool orchestrations and of course, great playing!

    I'm digging several of the things posted here, thanks, guys! I'm so pleased that we have a handful of jazz fans here at PE! You guys ro... uh, JAZZ!
