  1. DKV & Joe McPhee - the fire each time Disc 3
  2. Now reading...

    The Way We Live Now - Anthony Trollope
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This is a standout. One of the best of the 2010s IMHO.
  4. Please post a review. I wanted to, but was not able to make it this week.
  5. Best and worst sounding RVG Blue Note CD

    Was there ever a decent sounding cd issued of A Fickle Sonance? Did the original lp sound as poorly as the RVG cd? Is it worth seeking out the lp for better sound?
  6. "Best Historical Jazz Releases Of 2019"

    Rooster, if you had to pick just one of the recent live Shaw releases, which one would it be?
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The People I Love - Steve Lehman Trio + Craig Taborn
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. It's Newk's Time

  11. 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)
  12. 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)
  13. 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.
