Right now. . .Philip Bailey's new one, "Love will Find a Way." It's what a friend and I call "stoner jazz" and there definitely is a "quiet storm" pop and R&B acid wash going on at times, but with some nice spacey arrangements and great players. I never quite heard the Marvin Gaye influence on Bailey's singing so strongly before, but that's not a bad thing at all.

On to Stanley Turrentine "Up at Minton's, Vol. 1" this time the Analogue Productions Blue Note SACD version.

Grant Green is playing to impress on this one. . . .

This is a wonderful 2 CD set of Bird as much with Strings as with a jazz combo setting. 

Some of the material was issued on the legendary "Bird is Free" LP from the early 70´s which was very much caught, many hipsters of my generation who were deeply into Free Jazz also listened to this, and everybody was aware that without Bird there wouldn´t be Ornette, Archie Shepp, and all of them.

Dave Burrell - The Jelly Roll Joys (Gazell, 1991)

Half the cuts on this CD are by Jelly Roll.  No post-modern deconstructions of his music here.  (Not that there would be anything wrong with that.)  Burrell's interpretations -- you might even call them "readings" (in the classical music sense) -- of Morton's compositions are straightforward as could be.  The inherent strength of this music shines through brightly.  No special treatments necessary.

Reissued this month, this  Octave Records release of Erroll Garner, "Up in Erroll's Room," is perhaps my favorite. A huge piano sound, and . . . that amazing playing. Yes there is cheese. . .and ham, it's a record by one of the most extroverted pianists ever. But there's also chewy rye, and lots of mustard, and buttery lettuce. And the other two thirds of the trio do exactly the right things for the boss!

The type of upbeat, sunny, joyous, life-affirming, positive-energy music that seems unique to the 1960s.
