  9. I attended a performance of Tyshawn Sorey's sextet at the Jazz Gallery in NYC this past Saturday. His band mates were all young and relatively new on the NYC scene -- probably all under 30 years of age. It was packed. Standing room only. I have been to the Jazz Gallery dozens of times and have never seen so many people attending an event there. The band played a single set lasting approximately two hours and fifteen minutes. The music was not as "experimental" as the music Sorey has presented in his latest several releases. I would describe the music as covering the spectrum from post bop to free bop. He operated in the conventional role as a drummer with this band. What struck me the most was how great a drummer Sorey is. He performed over the two hours some of the most effortlessly melodic and inventive drumming that I have heard in a long while.

  10. Wow. onkyomusic is a steal for lossless files. The set is digitally available in lossless files on bandcamp for 4 times the price of onkyomusic.
