    As an avowed Spotifier, I listen to the playlists of new Jazz just to see if I'm missing anything interesting. Why does it seem to that a lot of the drums sounds like that "Drum N Bass" electronic music?
    No matter what anyone says, you are the decider of how you will listen to music.

    For a lot of the younger jazzers who are now at the forefront of the "scene", they will have grown up in musical cultures where drum & bass is more or less the dominant sound - & these are musicians who, for various reasons, are actively seeking to "connect" with audiences & peers for whom jazz may well not be the main music that they're listening to...so it's more or less second nature to play in ways that reflect or evoke the "skittering" style of drum & bass breakbeats.

    I think one of the first jazz bands who started experimenting with this was est - Magnus Öström was explicitly playing with drum & bass styles as early as Strange Place for the Snow in 2002 - if not even earlier.

    In the other direction, there was an explicit jazz sensibility in quite a few of the pioneering drum & bassers - such as 4 Hero (eg Two Pages in 1998), Roni Size (eg New Forms, from 1997), Grooverider, etc. So, I guess it would be more or less correct to say that the crossover really started to take place towards the very end of the 90s with the drum & bassers incorporating jazz grooves & instruments into their records, & then started to be assimilated in jazz bands a year or two after that.

    Ha, my first post here after quite a long absence and it's on a Jazz rather than Prog topic!

    However, its a great thread and I didn't see anything by Artemis posted, so here you go:

    One of my favorite albums of the past year (the Ron Miles disc above is also at the top of the list), just outstanding music in every way.

    Ambrose Akinmusire, another faultless 2020 release:


    2020 was also a good year for ECM releases, one of my favorites is Scofield/Stewart/Swallow:

    Nice!

    Last week, I discovered Artemis and I like it plus from Ron Miles: "I Am a Man". (Ron Miles with Bill Frisell, Brian Blade, Jason Moran & Thomas Morgan) ... a winner too IMO.




    Best,
    Tomás.

    love the album's title, though even the acronym would be too long to bother with



    the album's content is cool too, BTW.

    This would be a quadruple vinyl release. lmao.gif

    No humor please, we're skittish.

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