  1. I guess he's not making the trip out West.
  2. Seeing the Vijay Iyer Sextet on Saturday at SFJAZZ. Looking forward to it! Slightly different lineup than the album. Vijay Iyer: piano, Fender Rhodes Graham Haynes: cornet Steve Lehman: alto saxophone Mark Shim: tenor saxophone Stephan Crump: bass Marcus Gilmore: drums
  3. Mark Turner

    I've seen Turner several times in different formats and he never really excited me. But the last couple of times I felt that I was starting to understand where he's coming from.
  4. Mark Turner

    Agree 100%
  5. It's an unusual set, for sure. I haven't spent enough time with it yet, but I'm in no hurry. Something to look forward to!
  6. Marion Brown Discography

    That would make sense. I don't remember anything about Schwartz, but that doesn't mean he wasn't there. Schwartz's bio on his website says: "Visiting appointments have included Trinity College of Music, London (1967), the University of California/Santa Barbara (College of Creative Studies, 1970, '73, '74) ..."
  7. Marion Brown Discography

    Interesting. This would have been between 1971 & '74, but there's nothing there. I wish I had a better recollection of his contribution, or explanation of his appearance.
  8. Clifford Jordan - disk 5, the Wilbur Ware session.
  9. Marion Brown Discography

    In the early 70's I took a 'History of Jazz' class at UC Santa Barbara. I can't remember the name of the professor (who was very good and opened my eyes to a LOT of great music), but I'm sure that Marion Brown was in residence and available at least a couple of times. I've tried searching for any info on this, but so far have come up empty. Anyone here heard anything about it?
  10. After ALL these years, hard to believe it's finally going OOP!
  11. Vijay Iyer Sextet at Birdland NYC Jan. 9-13

    Seeing them at SFJAZZ on Jan 20.
  12. Free Tidal

    Better HURRY! Tidal may only have enough cash left to last six months
  13. I tend to agree with you, but it's pervasive across ALL social media. I've never bothered to bring it up and learned to accept the irony of it all.
  14. Vijay Iyer Sextet, FAR FROM OVER

    Seeing this group at SFJAZZ next month. Looking forward to it. Here's the announced lineup: Vijay Iyer piano, Fender Rhodes Graham Haynes, cornet Steve Lehman, alto saxophone Mark Shim, tenor saxophone Stephan Crump, bass Marcus Gilmore, drums
