    Damn..... I interviewed him twice last year and saw and talked to him at the Birth of the Cool premiere
  3. Connie Han- Plays Richard Rodgers

    Did you check her website? Her new album Iron Starlet is out June 12th, and is quite nice, I received my promo copy to review this weekend. I can ask her on Instagram or Facebook message and get back to you.
  4. Agreed. I've watched a lot of YT vids on rudimentary theory.
  5. Live Streaming Concerts

  6. I remember he bashed a movie just for how an ethnnic were portrayed (even if you disagree with that, is it really worth slamming a film entirely?) and how he felt underwhelmed by Both Directions at Once because he expected it to be like live Coltrane which is a bit absurd. I write about jazz but don't consider myself a "critic" in that sense of the word I write about what I enjoy, stuff I don't like I'll leave to someone else. I feel like writers such as Brody have an entitlement to something and what they write about has more to say about them as people. Critics are a strange bunch.
  7. I don't generally care for Brody's viewpoints, but this article was pretty good.
  8. McCoy Tyner has died, aged 81

    Looking forward. Sahara I heard years ago, it's great. If only Fantasy had done a mega Tyner Milestone set!
  9. McCoy Tyner has died, aged 81

    Is it me or is Elvin's drum sound very odd with how it's clear it's recorded in a booth, but has an odd almost gated effect on that? I'm streaming it now but hope to get a lot of these albums on CD soon from the Milestone era. I just have burns I made years ago of Enlightenment, Counterpoints: Live in Tokyo and Together from emusic as far as Milestones go.
  10. McCoy Tyner has died, aged 81

    RIP. I first heard McCoy on Milestone Jazzstars in Concert at 5 or 6 years old, one of the few good albums my aunt ever got me-- and I think I was taken by that commanding sense and those long sustained trills. I had gotten seriously into Trane at 13 and that was the start of the journey. This loss really sucks.
  11. New Charles Lloyd

    Sangam is great. Well, seems like as someone said the only way to get the full concert is the box set. Dissappointing.
  12. New Charles Lloyd

    I think I'll get the CD/DVD at some point. I'll stream the CD portion at Amazon HD Music to see if I really want to buy it
  13. Miles Davis on American Masters.

    True but it adds so much to the charm lol
  14. Miles Davis on American Masters.

    I was dissappointed they censored the language, the PBS stream was the first I saw the film since the NY premiere and the review I wrote.
