  1. Ambrose Akinmusire

    You guys are killing me, I can't stop laughing. I expected to get lambasted for this opinion. Us old men have to stick together. LOLLLLLLLLL
  2. Ambrose Akinmusire

    My 71 year old ears are done with this young fellow. He hooked me, reeled me in with his first couple of releases(I actually spoke with him, his baby and wife in the lobby of Yoshi's a while ago). Too bad because he has great technical ability on his horn. I just wish he would lean back a little toward the traditional Hard Bop style which he's quite capable of playing. The music is way to cerebral for me, too much slow weird stuff. Of course just one old man's opinion.
  3. Whom Have You Discovered Lately

    For me it's the MJQ. No, not Milt Jackson and the boys, I'm talking about the Manhattan Jazz Quintet. The Personnel has changed a bit over the years but originally David Matthews on piano, George Young(I had never heard of this guy)on saxophones, Lou Soloff on trumpet, Eddie Gomz on bass and Steve Gadd on drums. They have an extensive discography dating back to 1984. Their cd's are expensive but I plan on getting them all. Very refreshing discovery for me. Great hard bop music, great arranging, original ideas
  4. The Cookers

    Saw The Cookers for the 2nd or 3rd time at Yoshi's Oakland last night Thurs 2-20-2020, have all their cd's. As much as I like these guys, they're starting to look and sound a little tired, worn, weathered but still doing serious touring. Soon will be in the Netherlands. We all know what Kenny Rogers said, might be time for these guys to "fold em"
  5. Who Have You Discovered Lately

    Alvin Battiste and Harold Battiste. Might be just one t in last name, not sure. I'v been collecting since 1998 and I'm amazed that I'm just now acquiring this music. It's like I'm discovering hard bop on the Clarinet. Great stuff if you like this kind of jazz.........

  14. Who Have You Discovered Lately

    I've had several. Really impressed with Rosario Giuliani. Up tempo hard driving hard bop.
