  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Well, this one on EMANEM has the the lonious himself on a couple of tracks. But it's the first part of the CD - the Lacy / Rudd quartet - that is the real deal here.
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Yes, I think this is the first one, or one of the first ones. This is not necessarily the best Waldron / Lacy collaboration, but as far as Monk tributes are concerned, this is an excellent album. As far as Monk tributes are concerned, here is another one: These two young upstarts, Johnny and Eddie, can make circles around Mr. Braxton.
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Works for me. But check out that Lacy if you don't know it.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This one is OK, but "best"? I am not sure what would be the best one, but IMHO a definitely better one is (recorded 30 years earlier with some of the same people):
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Steve Swallow - Ohad Talmor - Adam Nussbaum "Singular Curves". Excellent stuff.
  6. Apostrophe

    And a lot of CD's.
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Outstanding playing by Mr. Krystall. I don't get it why he's not better known.
  8. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    I'll go. I am not concerned about Maneri as much as about Leandre's clownish tendencies that sometimes tend to overwhelm her performances. I saw here live a few times, always a bit of a disappointment.

    Got this one and gave it a listen - great stuff. I might actually go see Maneri with Leandre and Cleaver in a week.
  10. hat [now] ART

    Forgot this one: Spotify link: https://open.spotify.com/album/0SQOb1mBMDGNTQNzVVNEwL It's an orchestral piece that can be performed on its own or with improvisers. Here it's presented in three versions - with improvisers Axel Dörner & Paul Lovens, without improvisers, and with improvisers John Butcher & Thomas Lehn. All three versions are a great listen (the orchestra piece is a Scelsi-like thing with long long tones and slow development). I've been enjoying this one a lot, especially the demented Butcher / Lehn version. I wish there were more works for orchestras with improvisers. After all, that was the idea back in the 18th century, right?
  11. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    By conservative you mean he does not do altissimo screaming that much? The stuff that tenor players have been doing for 50+ years? I'm listening to the 2019 eskelin / weber / griener release on Intakt, "the pearls". Half of the pieces are pre-war tunes, another half - free improvisations. Eskelin’s playing is just great. The sound, the logic, the ideas.... Perfect. Here's actually a modern tenor trio that is not retro - despite playing Jelly Roll Morton.
