    Of interest:
    I've been listening to the music/albums of the polish ensamble, a septet nowadays, EABS (Electro-Acoustic Beat Sessions).

    The following words summarize their proposal:

    “The growth in popularity of jazz music in recent years has been described as a renaissance or new chapter for the genre.

    Attracting new audiences has seen a growth in acclaim for international artists including Kamasi Washington & The West Coast Get Down collective or BadBadNotGood.

    This resurgence has also been felt within british jazz scene. Musicians such as Yussef Kamaal, Shabaka Hutchings, Ruby Rushton, Nubya Garcia or Moses Boyd have put a new stamp on jazz music by fusing elements of classic jazz with modern sounds.

    Polish septet, EABS applies a similar philosophy to their music, blending traditional Polish Jazz with sounds from other genres, thus creating a new and personal interpretation of modern jazz.

    EABS have created their unique compositions by employing an approach exercising the idea of “reconstruction from deconstruction” where sampling and looping are merged with jazz improvisations. The injection of hip-hop, jungle, funk, gospel and electronic music add a futuristic tone to the tracks.”
    http://www.eabs.pl/#section-5

    - Repetitions (Letters to Krzysztof Komeda).
    https://eabs.bandcamp.com/album/repe...zysztof-komeda

    “This album is an analysis of conscientiously selected compositions by Komeda between 1962-1967. EABS explores some of Komeda’s lesser-known compositions featured in ballet etudes, movies, short films, documentaries, animations and compositions illustrating Polish poems recited in German. ”

    - Repetitions (Letters to Krzysztof Komeda) Live at Jazz Club Hipnoza (Katowice) ****
    https://eabs.bandcamp.com/album/repe...pnoza-katowice

    - Kraksa/Svantetic is the final part of a dedication to Krzysztof Komeda, recorded straight to tape at Radio Opole in Poland featuring Tenderlonious on flute and soprano saxophone.”

    Finally, I’m not familiar with their first one:
    - Puzzle Mixtape ... will see! -
    https://eabs.bandcamp.com/album/puzzle-mixtape
    Slavic Spirits is their newst and filled with 100% original material.

    "Therefore, in their further musical quest, the band stayed observant of the signs and inspirations from their predecessors from the jazz and big beat era, who paved the way through their willingness to experiment and pursue a unique sound."

    Nice!.
    Pura Vida!.

    finally got a chance to listen to this...I like it. Greg Ward's is still the top for me thus far into 2019, but this is still very enjoyable. thanks for the heads up
    No humor please, we're skittish.

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

    I have recently discovered the Manchester-based tenor sax player Nat Birchall. Sounds Almighty was an inspiring confluence of post-bop blowing with the deep grooves of roots & dub reggae.

    In the last couple of days, I've got hold of his earlier release, Akhenaten, which you can listen to &/or buy here:

    https://natbirchallmusic.bandcamp.com/album/akhenaten

    It's a deeply spiritual recording, evoking the recordings of Alice Coltrane & Pharaoh Sanders from the late 60s/early 70s. Birchall's playing is warm, deep & beautiful throughout.

    Hey:
    Thanks Dave for the observation: I didn't realize it but it sounds so familiar with … something …!

    Davis was coaxed into the studio by Larry and Julie Coryell, to whom he had been introduced by his friend Eleana Steinberg. Steinberg's attentions were apparently helping to get Davis off cocaine and alcohol, and he began composing again. These items, on which Davis plays only organ, are just riffs, with the standard flashy excesses of late-1970s fusion. Apparently Davis and/or Steinberg suggested as the title for this tune "Amanaura," but it was copyrighted as "Miss Last Summer." (See the interviews with keyboard player George Pavlis and Eleana Steinberg on George Cole's The Last Miles website.) Davis was very happy with this music, and he wanted Coryell, whom he called "Notes Anonymous" on account of his tendency to play too many notes, to join a band. Coryell wisely declined. Davis was in no condition to play in a band, much less lead one. It would be more than two years before he returned to regular touring.

    I'll bet. I have some Buddy Rich already, but that 46 to 56 is tempting. I remember him well from The Tonight Show.

    Anyone know what's the deal with the pre-echo in TCC's #2434? You can hear what Mikkelborg plays before he plays it, in several places.

    Guitarist Ben Monder has a new 2 disc CD called "Day After Day." It's all covers and the first disc is solo guitar; second one is trio. As much as I like disc 2, it's the solo stuff that really floored me! Nobody plays solo guitar remotely like Ben and his harmonic concept is astounding; it comes as much from modern classical as jazz. His technique is pretty amazing too; lots of contrapuntal stuff going on. You can hear the whole thing on Bandcamp: https://benmonder.bandcamp.com/album/day-after-day

    Thanks for the link. Ernie! I dig his solo playing as well. I wonder if there are any acoustic tracks? That ultra dark electric tone is pretty murky.

    Album samples from Ben's website. A couple of acoustic numbers on the trio disc.
