  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The People I Love - Steve Lehman Trio + Craig Taborn
  2. Lloyd's playing generally does not resonate with me. His release on Resonance a few years ago, Manhattan Stories, is a really nice record. That might be all the Lloyd I need.
  3. What music did you buy today?

    What does "I venture to say without proof" mean? If you have no proof, how can you make the assertion that the dedications were someone else's idea?
  4. It's Newk's Time

  5. Yes. The Wadada Tums are great. Also the Golden Quartet albums on various labels, Ten Freedom Summers, Americas National Parks Yes. There is a new Coin Coin release on its way. I like her release The Chicago Project (Central Control International) the best though. Agreed. So many stellar musicians and great music from Chicago. Too much to keep up with. I am just getting around to listening to the Fred Anderson releases on Eremite Blue Winter and Two Days in April. The Chicago scene has consistently produced a steady stream of fine musicians. A really nice Mazurek is Starlicker - Double Demon with Jason Adasiewicz and John Herndon. The Threadgills are magnificent. It is hard to pick one. I would also add Bill McHenry - La Peur Du Vide w/ Andrew Cyrille, Eric Revis, and Orrin Evans Davis S. Ware's AUM Fidelity recordings are also great. The Live in the World three-cd set on Thirsty Ear is my favorite DSW Quartet recording. Roy Hargrove - Earfood (Emarcy)
  6. Invisible Cinema - Aaron Parks (Blue Note) Dharma Days - Mark Turner (Warner Brothers) Black Stars - Jason Moran (Blue Note) Turbulent Flow - Mark Shim (Blue Note) O'Neal's Porch - William Parker (Centering/AUM Fidelity) Beyond the Sound Barrier - Wayne Shorter (Verve) Star of Jupiter - Kurt Rosenwinkel (Wom Music) Tomeka Reid Quartet (Thirsty Ear) Tamarindo - Tony Malaby (Clean Feed) Emily's D+ Evolution - Ezperanza Spalding (Concord) Centennial Trilogy - Christian Scott (Ropeadope) J.D. Allen - Grace/J.D. Allen - Graffiti (Savant) (I think Grace is his best album, but Graffiti is the best with his working trio at the time) Scrapbook - William Parker (Thirsty Ear)
  7. Art Ensemble of Chicago - We Are On The Edge

    I will have to check that one out. I just ordered and received from Relative Pitch the Tomeka Reid/Filippo Monico release entitled the Mouser and the James Brandon Lewis release Unruly Manifesto. I like them both.

    The Mouser- Tomeka Reid/Filippo Monico (Relative Pitch)
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I highly recommend Inner Circle from Osby's Blue Note years. It is my favorite and probably would make my list of favorite albums from 2000-19.
  10. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Yes. It would be on my list.
  11. File format

    Redundancy is important. You should always have at least TWO backups. I also learned the hard way.
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    JD Allen - Barracoon (JDA tenor saxophone; Ian Kenselaar bass; Nic Cacioppo - drums) Nothing revelatory, but very enjoyable. JDA leans more towards Ornette in his playing.
  13. jazz at the atlas 2019-newburgh ny

    I did not find the show disappointing, I found it underwhelming. Darius's focus has been on politics the last few times that I have seen him. At that show, he seemed more interested in spreading his political viewpoints than making good music. I go to the Jazz Gallery to get away from the overtly political. I could have stayed home and watched cable news instead of going to see the performance.

    I saw that quartet at the Jazz Gallery recently. I think Darius is a great player, but I was underwhelmed.
