  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I am in a Mabern mood and hadn't listened to this in a few years. I'd love to know whatever became of Keel.
  2. Previously unreleased Sam Rivers live recordings

    More Sam Rivers is definitely a good thing. The trio with Doug Mathews and Anthony Cole was a fun band, so I'm happy to see that more live material is on the way.
  3. NEA Jazz Masters - 2020

    Mabern is one of several pianists who should have been named NEA Jazz Masters by now. To name just a few more, Richard Wyands, Norman Simmons and Steve Kuhn are also deserving. Congratulations to the winners. I'm particularly glad to see Workman be recognized. With deserving bassists like Workman, Ron Carter and Richard Davis in, to name some living masters, I hope that the great Cecil McBee joins them.

    Norman Simmons - The Art of Norman Simmons, while the baby enjoys her PB&J and dances in her seat:
  5. How was it? They are coming to Cleveland next week and I have high expectations. I haven't yet seen Davis or Smith live.
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Brian Landrus - Traverse, with Michael Cain, Lonnie Plaxico and Billy Hart. It had been a few years since I'd last listened to this one, but Landrus on baritone sax and bass clarinet can definitely hang with his heavy company. I need to buy more of his work, which I meant to do years ago.
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I bought this specifically for the presence of Roy Brewster, the trombonist from Curtis Amy's Pacific Jazz albums. It is a fun one.
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I'll give that a spin later. Along with Double Take (co-led by Woody Shaw), that is my go-to Hubbard album. Now playing: I need to rip Dixon's Odyssey box. Although this album would send my wife screaming, my toddler is calmly enjoying it.
  9. What the heck is Anthony Braxton playing?

    I think that video is of the same song that Sidney Bechet recorded using the sarussophone. I recently bought Bechet's Mosaic Select and I get a kick out of Bechet on sarussophone.
  10. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Kenny Burrell - Monday Stroll: This is a feel-good album that swings so hard.
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I'm glad I found this one the other day for a mere $5.
  12. What the heck is Anthony Braxton playing?

    Looks like a contrabass saxophone. There is also apparently a subcontrabass saxophone, but I don't know if anyone in jazz has recorded on one.
