  1. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Listened to this one, did not like it that much - neither the works, nor the performance. I am not a fan or Ars Antiqua Austria either (saw them live a couple of times), although I do like Gunnar Letzbor's forceful performance of Bach solo violin sonatas and partitas. For the last couple of years this has been my go-to disc for baroque lute music: http://www.timespanrecordings.co.uk/david-miller---baroque-lute.html

    Porgy & Bess is the best jazz club in Vienna: http://porgy.at/

    I agree, great trio. Yes from me for Renato Sellani. This solo one, "Glad there is you", from his last years, is gorgeous.

    Yes, this duo with Draksler is nice. Santos Silva actually reminds me of Barbara Donald from those excellent Sonny Simmons sides of 60s/70s. Same forceful sound (too forceful for my taste), plying very direct, a bit rigid.

    Santos Silva is good. I like this one a lot: https://www.subradar.no/album/santos-silvawodrasckameaas-svendsenberre/rasengan
  8. Overlooked pianists

    Was Richard Grossman mentioned? I thought his trios on Hat Hut were very interesting.

    I see Randy Peterson is on a recent piano trio date led by Rema Hasumi: https://www.ruweh.com/collections/frontpage/products/rema-hasumi-billows-of-blue The label's site also has an interview with him: https://www.ruweh.com/blogs/news/randy-peterson-interview

    Oh wow, Randy Peterson, have not heard about him for a long time. What a drummer! His playing on Mat Maneri's trio discs on Leo is fantastic.

    Regarding Formanek quartet with Malaby, I will check it out on Spotify. Wanted to catch up with what Malaby is up to. I remember he had a very strong trio disc way back when, 15 years ago or something. And then everything I've heard by him afterwards was not that interesting, so I stopped following. But I am not a fan of Ches Smith and Kris Davis either, so my expectations for Formanek disc are not that high.

    New Barre Phillips solo is a good one. More mellow and melodious than his previous (8!) solo records. Baby Sommer is great, one of my favorite drummers. One of my favorite musicians, actually. I've been listening to his solo "Dedications" (on Intakt) a lot lately.

    Well, this is more about trying to come up with a sustainable income model for creative musicians, rather than providing listeners with bargain deals on music.

  15. I agree. I am not the biggest AEoC fan in general, but to my ears their later stuff is markedly worse than earlier. And Lester Bowie's Brass Band... eh.
