    A great player, and the sides he cut with Paul Desmond (particularly the "live" LP) are exquisite; two peas in a pod.

    Ironside by Ruby Rushton.

    https://rubyrushton.bandcamp.com/
    - This is the 4th coming studio album from the Edward Cawthorne-Tenderlonious led jazz quartet - Ruby Rushton. (releases April 5, 2019).

    "Ironside’ sees the band continuing to push boundaries, and lead the way, with this new genre defying recording. The quartet’s fresh, high energy sound is rooted in the spiritual concepts of John Coltrane and Yusef Lateef, paying homage to The Headhunters and Weather Report heyday, whilst still adopting influences from hip hop, Afrobeat and the UK underground culture."

    Great news!.

    Finally:
    Highest recommendations with:

    Trudi's Songbook Volume One & Two (2019):
    https://rubyrushton.bandcamp.com/alb...volume-one-two

    The band transport you back to the 70s Headhunters era, whilst still adopting the spiritual concepts of John Coltrane and Yusef Lateef. Audiences can expect to be treated to high energy compositions, fusing flavours of afro beat, hip hop, and Latin jazz.

    This limited edition 2xLP deluxe gatefold issue of Trudi’s Songbook: Volume One & Two closes this chapter for the band and paves the way for new material."




    Regards!.

Some concise and well-defined hooky groove-based melodies are here, nestled beside rich, dark textural pieces that draw the listener in and propel them through this unique musical journey."
    When did they get to 5 and 6??? I remember adding 3 in the new releases less than a year ago.

    Excellent band. I have expectations.

    The Oracle by Angel Bat Dawid slightly reminds me of Alice Coltrane, although not as gossamer, perhaps. Amazing though she recorded it on her cell phone.

    Just listened to Greg Ward's Stomping Off From Greenwood. This is exactly how I like my modern jazz.

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

    Just got my box of Coltrane: The Classic Quartet - Complete Impulse! This will take much study to absorb it all.

    New music ... to my old ears:

    The Cosmic Range.
    - New Latitudes (2016) +
    - The Gratitude Principle (2019)

    Recommended!.

    “If Kamasi Washington is spiritual apprentice to sorcerer John Coltrane, then The Cosmic Range are the bastard offspring Seers of Miles Davis and Alice Coltrane, raised on George Clinton's mothership. Get some!”.
