    Nice stuff. Best thing he's done since the Hendrix tribute.

    A few months back was wondering what members of Tipographica (great %^%$#!!! band) did after the split. Found Unbeltipo, got 3 discs (they might have more)... apologize for the shorter vid being a cut up teaser version of UBT22.

    I wish a YT clip existed of this music,but anyone who hasn't heard the Art Ensemble of Chicago's recording "People In Sorrow",from 1969, is missing out on a truly great piece of music.The Art Ensemble was a quartet in those days,in residence in Paris after leaving Chicago for,hopefully, greater recognition and more supportive audiences in Europe.They recorded many fine albums during their stay in Paris, none better,imo, than People In Sorrow.

    Well worth checking out.It is available on cd,legit.

    Mmm...yes. This album seems to get better with each track posted. (Including Dave's above)



    As for Black Woman...the vocals are a bit of a turn off for me. I'm not a big fan of vocals in my jazz. But it was a good listen overall.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    If we are discussing big bands do not forget Maria Schneider. Her work is phenomenal, trually progressive in many ways. I believe she just released another album mixing classical music with jazz (that is little bit outside of the scope of this discussion).

    Agreed, and apparently Alex Cline just released a cover version of this!

    Great thread! As the old guy on the list, I've had the opportunity to hear a lot of the classic jazz artists. My dad was a big jazz fan, at least to the point of modern jazz. His favorite line was "that's not jazz". However, I'm not him...I would like to recommend the amazing Don Ellis! If you are not familiar with him, check out his NEW IDEAS album, recorded in 1961. You will be amazed at how innovative and far ahead of his time he was.

    The same can be said of Essence, a 4tet date from '62, which anticipates some of the freer moves the music was moving toward.....

    If I can manage it, I'll set aside a full day to listen to all of the links on this thread. I consider myself as a reasonably serious jazz fan, but this thread gives me doubts about that since I've only heard about 15 or 20% of the bands/artists mentioned here. Cool thread though!

    Milt Jackson-Ray Brown-Cedar Walton-Mickey Roker Quartet.I've had this recording for many years and it still gets spins at my crib.I saw these guys at the Village Vanguard in 84(85?) and they were'beyond category'.Masters of their art,in every sense.

    Milt Jackson on vibes-Cedar Walton on piano, Ray Brown on bass,Mickey Roker on drums,from the cd "It Don't Mean A Thing If You Can't Tap Your Foot To It".

    Last friday and saturday, we had Mike Stern featuring Steve Smith and Tom Kennedy: wonderful and special evenings!!.

    Hes a jazz-rock/fusion guitarrist, an excellent one IMO, but, with "Standards" from 1992, he turns his attention to some jazz standards: love this cd, highest recommendations!:

    1. From Th. Monk:


    2. From M. Davis:


    3. Himself:


    One of my favs!!.
    Enjoy!!.
    Pura Vida!.

    That's my favorite Mike Stern album, for sure.

  18. #118
    He's a hell of a player that's for sure. I just wish he'd lose that ubiquitous chorus sound.

    Me too! He's been using that same sound for decades. He IS a great player, but I've kinda burned out on his albums; they're basically pretty "samey." I also prefer hearing him play straight ahead jazz (and maybe I should get that "Standards" album), though he's written some good fusiony and funky tunes. But when he plays that kind of stuff, there's this one blues/rock lick that he repeats constantly; drives me up a wall! Sorry, Mike...

    I used to have all of Stern's CDs and the ones he did with Bob Berg. I thought the Berg stuff held up better than Stern's so I sold all the Stern CDs. Agree about the saminess of tone and notes. He seemed to play the same solo over and over and over ... Haven't heard anything by him released in the past 10 - 15 years.

    Mike Stern is the answer to the unasked question, "What if Pat Metheny and David Johanssen had a baby?".

    Well, counting this past weekend, this is my 3rd time live:

    - Mike, excellent as usual, but yes, with you fictionmusic and No Pride talking about his "famous lick" and the "chorus sound", but at the end, no big problem for me.
    - Steve Smith: ... a monster-BIG!!.
    - Kennedy: first time live ... great!!

    Regards.

    Agreed, both great players! I just listened to the first "Vital Tech Tones" (Steve Smith/Scott Henderson/Victor Wooten) last night. Another good one with Smith is "The Stranger's Hand" with Jerry Goodman, Howard Levy and Ottiel Burbridge.

    Amen.

    The same sound since 1986.

    He's like Steve Morse, you always know what they're gonna sound like.
    no tunes, no dynamics, no nosebone
