    I've been enjoying this one a lot, as well as Jason's preceding solo piano release on Bandcamp The Sound Will Tell You. Have not yet listened to the YouTube conversation between Jason and Milford.

  7. Your Favorite Jazz Records of the 1980s?

    For me, the 80's was junior high through the start of grad school, split roughly equally between Cleveland and Chicago. Started with appreciation for Kind of Blue, Time Out, Weather Report, Cannonball's Mercy, Mercy, Mercy (cassette dub in about 10th grade), high school stage band. Then the very deep CD dive into (among other things) the greatness of Blue Note (Rose Records!). Here are some of my favorites, focusing primarily on items that I discovered around the time of their release. Joanne Brackeen - Live at Maybeck Recital Hall, Volume 1 Bobby McFerrin - Spontaneous Inventions [Don't worry, being happy wasn't a requirement until the next BN release.] Carmen McRae - Carmen Sings Monk Pat Metheny - Still Life (Talking) [Works very well played on a loop, especially when stuck inside with nasty winter weather outside.] Roscoe Mitchell - Snurdy McGurdy & Her Dancin' Shoes Frank Morgan - Mood Indigo Steps Ahead - Modern Times [Perhaps my first jazz show in a club was SA at Peabody's Down Under in the Flats.] Randy Weston - Portraits of Thelonious Monk No mention yet of John Carter's Roots and Folklore series?
  8. Ken Burns' "Jazz" seems pretty "Silly"

    I also found the few Dave Brubeck bits engaging.
  9. 2020-21 MLB Hot Stove Discussion

    RIP Don Sutton. Tough month for Dodger legends.
  10. Claude Bolling RIP

    I was a big fan of the various suites (w iconic covers) in high school. Don’t think I’ve listened to them much since. Should track them down. I enjoy one of his JiP titles. RIP Mr Bolling.
  11. Frank Kimbrough - RIP

    I got to enjoy Frank's playing at several Maria Schneider Orchestra performances over the years. We spoke briefly between sets at a March 2017 show. Echoing Ghost, he was excited about coming across a number of Herbie Nichols sketches (or whatever best term is for "idea"). He also described what touring with MSO was like, recalling a bus tour of college performances on the west coast. A talented performer and a very warm individual. I will definitely be playing some Nichols Project recordings and much of the recent Monk project (and then probably other Palmetto sides). I know we lose beloved artists each year, but 2020 can really be over now. RIP Frank.
  12. I grew up in Great Lakes region where there is some Dunkin' presence and no Krispy Kreme (at least when I lived there). First came into contact with KK in DC. I don't have strong allegiance to either brand, but in my experience KK is woefully overhyped. This is probably due to 1) not enjoying them super fresh, and 2) seeing countless fundraising types -- typically high school/college students -- selling what appear to be boxes of stale KK doughnuts. Despite a similar local presence, no such brand degradation for DD in my experience. Apple fritters? Oh yes!
  13. How old are YOU?

    I believe you are
  14. With Strings Jazz Albums

    While probably not completely within the "with strings" concept being discussed here, I am a fan of Miguel Zenón's recent Yo Soy La Tradición, a recording of chamber compositions based on Puerto Rican folk song forms. MZ is accompanied by the Spektral Quartet.
