Jeff Parker & The New Breed  ‎– Suite For Max Brown

This might have been an interesting record 10-15 years ago. Now....except for the last three cuts it sounds old-fashioned.

Those last three cuts are really good, though.

Simon deserves a higher profile.  I saw him last night with Horizon(!).  I've been impressed every time I've seen him (two other Horizon sets and with the SFJAZZ Collective).

I'm with you, Justin.  Edward Simon is an interesting musician. 

I'm jealous that you got to see him with Horizon!  ;)

Disc 5. - I especially like the Wayne Shorter tune on this disc - "Tell It Like It Is". Furthermore, the tenor solo by Shorter on this tune is one of my very favorites by Wayne Shorter2194u774iZL._AC_UY218_ML3_.jpg

Screen-Shot-2020-02-12-at-7-49-08-AM.png Two drummers, a tuba and a sax-- what's not to like?  And the title is really funny when you see the names of the songs.   But why's this on Impulse?

I listened this morning to someone I really admire and don't mention often enough: Tania Maria.

I think she's a wonderful vocalist, pianist, and as unique and "distilled" a composer in some ways as Thelonious Monk.

First up was "Brasil, Volume 2"--early Tania with her trio, a trio that could be as tight, groove as hard, and be as inventive as many American jazz trios. What distinguishes them is perhaps they tended to brighter tempos. . . and were masterful with them. 

Tania herself plays and arranges and reminds me of both Keith Jarrett and Ray Charles. And her singing evokes the rhythmic grace and feeling of Jobim and Regina, but also the silky pure tone of and the fleet, musical scatting of Fitzgerald.

Then I moved on to "Europe"--a later live recording where Tania has fully embraced and weaponized her quirky funkiness. And the engineering here throws huge instrumental images especially of the Stratocaster and Tania's keyboards--it's like being right in front of a stage.
