    Ah, I should have known it wasn't that simple! Now playing: Gary Thomas – While The Gate Is Open (JMT / Polydor Tokyo) — Gary Thomas - tenor saxophone, flute; Kevin Eubanks - electric guitar (tracks 1, 5, 6 & 8); Renee Rosnes - synthesizer, piano (tracks 2, 3 & 8); Anthony Cox (tracks 4, 5, 7 & 8), Dave Holland (tracks 1-3 & 6) - bass; Dennis Chambers - drums (tracks 1-5, 7 & 8); standards I noticed he hasn't recorded as a leader for a while. I guess he's been busy as an educator -- he's currently "Director and Chair of Jazz Studies" at the Peabody Institute.

  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Derek Bailey – Music And Dance (Revenant) It's raining outside this morning. It seems like the right weather to play this Derek Bailey CD of live "duos" with dancer Min Tanaka. The first half consists of the work called "Rain Dance" which was recorded in an abandoned forge in Paris. As Bailey notes: "The site of our performance [...] was not, in itself, particularly special, but when we played, the environment, as so often with Min, performed a significant role; La Forge had a glass roof, there was a brief burst of torrential rain, the roof leaked = RAIN DANCE."
