    Have to agree, but, it works for me too as Mulgrew Miller´s: basically, it depends on the occasion, mood, time and place :-)

    I haven't been here much this year, so I don't know if this guy has been mentioned, but he's my latest interesting discovery. Eldar Djangirov is a 29 year old Russian born pianist who's family moved to the US when he was 10. I heard his 2009 album, "Virtue," which is a very intense fusion album that showcases his compositional prowess along with some very impressive playing. A little later, I found out that he also frequently plays straight ahead jazz classics and standards. I don't know how these young people grow up to even be interested in jazz in this day and age (let alone excel at playing it), but however that happens, I'm grateful; makes me feel that music's future is in good hands!

    The opener (featuring special guest, Joshua Redman) from "Virtue:"

    Eldar's trio playing one of bebop's more well know tunes (thanks in part to Jaco's rendition), "Donna Lee:"

    Thanks No Pride for the H.U.!
    First time here: like it!

    Definitely have to explore more his music, specially his approach to bebop and jazz classics/standards!

    Pura vida!!

    A beautifully produced compilation that can serve as a great introduction to the Ra curious, or a brilliant addition/gap filler for the long time fan. Includes a superb booklet including informative essays, detailed track info, musician photos, and a two page color display of 18 Saturn albums. And there are some previously unreleased tracks to spicen the gumbo.

    Brazilian saxophonist Livio Almeida can be described as regular an affiliate pianist Arturo O'Farrill's sextet: O'Farrill returns the favor by producing Action & Reaction. Almeida takes center stage here, composing the many tracks and joined by pianist Vitor Gon? alves, bassist Eduardo Belo, and drummer Zack O'Farrill (trumpeter Adam O'Farrill is featured on two selections). Brazilian music (and Latin jazz generally) is definitely a prominent flavor on the program-most notably through the opener "Sambasus" utilizing its samba feel-but this really is a jazz album first, easily normally the one with the greatest "jazz" emphasis through this range of Latin jazz releases. Just about the most memorable tracks is most likely the ballad "Those (not too infant) Eyes," which means the classic Wayne Shorter tune "Infant Eyes" from Speak No Evil (Blue Note, 1966). Almeida brings great energy and a feeling of adventure for this date, joined using a strong band.
    Bar chair has become positively ubiquitous — and for good reason. They allow family, friends and even strangers to join us in the kitchen. Every school night, my sons did their homework sitting on a bar stool at our counter, where they could finagle help whether it was needed or not. Many a night, dear friends would perch on those same stools, keeping us company while we cooked or celebrating together after a touchdown.

    Keep in mind now, this post is being made after a really strong double IPA

    Who would win in a fight, Miles or Mingus? Yes, Miles has some boxing experience but goddamn, Mingus had a righteous fury in his fists. Also a greater reach.

    Sunny Murray had a chair, which he used to bonk Mingus upside his head(so the story goes,according to Sunny).

    Jimmy Knepper had some thoughts on this, even though he said Mingus gave him more of a backhand smack 'cross the mouth than a punch,per se.Knepper said a tooth or tooth filling was broken by Mingus.Thereby hangs a tale.

    Just bought Charles Mingus' Ah Um, and Coltrane's A Love Supreme for $3 per CD at a flea market. The wife and I are dropping off some stuff at the house, eat lunch and then go for a long ride!

    Just read that Rudy Van Gelder, engineer and studio builder(he started as an optometrist,recording jazz as a hobby), died at age 91.Anyone who owns even a modest collection of modern jazz albums has sessions recorded by Rudy at his New Jersey studios; his well known studio in Englewood Cliffs NJ with its vaulted wooden ceiling was the site of countless classic recordings.

    Rudy has stated that when people talk about the vaunted "Rudy Van Gelder sound", they should know that he tried to construct a recording studio in line with what Blue Note founder Alfred Lion thought jazz music should sound like."The Rudy Van Gelder sound was really the Alfred Lion sound."

    RIP Rudy Van Gelder.

    Rudy deserves his own thread. He's as important to jazz history as the most iconic musicians. R.I.P.
