Wynton Marsalis - Live at Blues Alley
Max Roach - To the Max
Roy Hargrove - Diamond in the rough


Going to upload these to my computer and give them a listen


One of the things my godfather & I used to do was go see people lecture. I saw Max Roach speak & it was really cool. It was amazing to hear him talk about his experiences. He had on the dopest suit too. Although a lot of the old greats have passed away now, if you ever see someone lecturing near you, please go see them. It's one thing to see them perform, but it's another seeing them talk about thier experiences & talk about thier art...

Wish I could, hardly anyone comes through here except for country artists and washed up rock bands.
We do have a few nice local players though.

Bluenote has a extensive catalog worth checking out. Lee morgan, Donald Byrd, Bobbi Humphrey just to name a few. As far as modern jazz, iv'e been a uprising fan for Robert Glasper.

If you like Dexter Gordon omgitswes, check out the film 'Round Midnight. The trailer's kinda cheesy but it's a good film. I have the poster hanging on my office pod wall. Dexter Gordon plays one of the lead roles.

As many times as I've heard this song I had no idea what it was called.

Joe Henderson is such an under appreciated sax player... He certa got overshadowed by the likes of Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, & Hank Mobley. This is one of my favorite albums of his. It features Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Pete La Roca on drums, McCoy Tyner on piano, & Butch Warren on bass. Love the latin flavor of this song & album.

Haven't posted anything in a while. I woke up to this song today

Glad to see this thread back...Was digging through some boxes to see what I hadn't played in a while & came across this soundtrack. Branford hasn't been putting out a lot as of late. Not sure why. Always loved this song. Featured his best band with Terrance Blanchard on trumpet, Kenny Kirkland on piano (RIP), Jeff Watts on drums, & Robert Hurst on bass...

Edit- I had originally posted Coltrane's Soul Eyes, the impulse version but later found out it was someone doing the song on a keyboard while showing photos of album covers. I tried searching for the song via yuku but could only find the Prestige version which isn't nearly as good as the Impulse version.

Since I couldn't find the song I wanted, I posted Part 1 Acknowledgement from Coltrane's A Love Supreme. This is probably the pinnacle of Coltrane's work. Almost every rock musician that came out of the 60's cites this as one of thier favorite albums. Also Elvin Jones drumming influenced a lot of the rock & roll drummers from that era too ranging from Charlie Watts, John Bonham, Ginger Baker, Keith Moon, the list goes on & on.

This album had Coltrane & Hank Mobley playing sax on different tracks with Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, & either Jimmy Cobb or Philly Jones on drums. Coltrane is on the title track here. I can always pick Coltrane out from other sax players. His tone was so unique. He was the most lyrical & melodic sax player ever. Still is...

Love this song. Have the cover this album framed in my man cave...
post #49 of 1331


Can't find the regular version of this song that's 8 mins 10 sec long...

I was pleasantly suprised when she released this standards album. The world needs more Amel Larrieux. She's got one of the sexiest voices ever...

Raining here & this came on during shuffle mode. Had to repeat this a couple of times...

Been listening to A LOT of Count Basie's band and his small group the Kansas City Seven. If you're not aware of the great saxophonist Lester Young, please take notice. It's early jazz, but it basically started bop
