This morning I spent with my Dad and on the hour plus trip there and then the hour plus trip back I listened to:

The debut release from Miki Yamanaka, a nice pianist with Steve Nelson on vibes.

I love this record. I think when I first heard the title tune "E.S.P." it was on a Miles Davis Sampler "Greatest Hits". Then, this was a cheap way to buy some Miles. Later I bought all the Albums of Course. From the first CBS "Round Midnight" until the last "Agharta". I think I like most the Albums from 1963 on, the live stuff and the Studio productions with the second great quintet.

a classic ! 

 I listened to the complete recording (different takes) what becomes a little boring after a time but the record itself is very nice !

@Referentzhunter: You are Right, now I remember it, it was my same Impression on first Hearing. I think one must understand under what circumstances the Album was made, it was just the movie score for that Film Noir. 

For my personal tastes, I also prefer the other records that Miles made during that period, the first quintet, the Prestige and Columbia Albums.

This morning I'm re-listeneing to two I spun yesterday:

The debut release from Miki Yamanaka, a nice pianist with Steve Nelson on vibes.

Grant Green "Carryin' On" Blue Note 80th Anniversary reissue cd

Miki's is a very nice sounding release. I wish I liked Joey Baron more--his work doesn't really thrill me, so I'd have welcomed a different drummer.

The Green is not among his best work but this new mastering has made me appreciate it more. Some nice song choices.

Scott Colley - The Magic Line (Arabesque)
trio with Chris Potter & Bill Stewart

For the decade or so that Arabesque was in the jazz game, they released some outstanding music.

Arabesque still releases jazz, just not as frequently.  The most recent Arabesque Jazz release was from November of last year.  They have an impressive catalog.

Now playing:

Stone Alliance - Live in Amsterdam: The only Grossman I have and the only recording I have with Don Alias on trap drums.  Fun, muscular stuff.

Oh. I wasn't aware. 

 

BTW: That Stone Alliance disc looks interesting. Have you heard their self-titled debut?

Currently re-listening to a lot of Cal Tjader for the revisions of the disco for the upcoming second edition of S. Duncam Reid's biography.
