  3. Kamasi Washington - Heaven and Earth

    Somewhere under all those layers of production and bravado there is a decent sax player, I think.

  6. My sympathies to the programmer and listeners. Jazz has a very tenuous status in broadcasting. I've had the good fortune to play jazz on the radio for about 34 of the last 49 years, all at smaller (non-NPR) non-commercial stations. KBCS, where I now volunteer, is owned by a public college and financed mostly by listener donations. Twenty years ago KBCS carried about 35 hours a week of jazz, including several specialty programs like early 20th century jazz. Now it's down to about six hours a week. (Folk music has suffered a similar decline.) I was lucky to keep my show because it is on late on a weekday evening, a time slot that so far the station management hasn't wanted to tamper with. There are still, of course, radio stations that play a lot of jazz, but it seems most of them are very limited in their programming choices, concentrating on familiar mainstream artists, standards, and jazzy blues. I'm just very thankful that I can still play jazz on the radio, play whatever I want, and hopefully turn people on to good music they've never heard before -- even though the audience is small. I never can tell when my luck may run out.

    David Copperfield -- This was my first Dickens, at about 14. Haven't gone back to it since then. It's even better now.
  8. Keith Jarrett recommendations

    No question he's a talented player and all, but I can't stand his whining -- not the whining about audiences (another topic), but the noises he makes so frequently while playing. I'd like to see a special discography listing the tracks on each Jarrett album where there is no squealing.
