Joe Lovano Us Five - Folk Art (Blue Note, 2009)

R-3945257-1350108058-6463.jpeg.jpg

I rarely have an itch to listen to Lovano these days, but I still think this one has stood the test of time fairly well.

Now playing:

Gravitational Systems (Hatology, 2000) by Matthew Shipp and Mat Manieri.

R-692138-1385730685-7232.jpeg.jpg

This is one of my favourite Shipps from the era, two decades ago, when I was first getting into jazz.  His harmonic interplay with Maneri is particularly excellent.

I saw so many album postings and albums in your ´70s thread that I always said: Same tastes like me, same period I witnessed, 

and now I notice you listen to some things that are completely unknown to me.

It´s sure it´s my fault, I thing I´m not very open for music that is not strictly the so called "jazz". My knowlegde goes from bop, hardbop, modal,free to electric jazz (jazzrock,funk) , but it´s quite hard for me to dig into other stuff:lol:

Just pulled this out to listen to soon.

 

Right now

Sathima Bea Benjamin (with Duke Ellington, Ray Nance, Billy Strayhorn, Dollar Brand et al) "A Morning in Paris" Enja cd

This is a unique, to me amazing session. Produced by Duke Ellington when he was empowered by Reprise Records Sathima was inspired by her husband Dollar's presence and the amazing support of his bandmates on bass and drums, and the appearances by Duke and Billy on piano are also inspiring. And Ray Nance's pizzicato violin is wonderful. The engineering is also top-notch: one sounds as if one is right there in the band, the piano sound is full and resonant and every nuance of Samitha's unusual phrasing and commanding control and presence is revealed naturally.

One of those discs that you don't dare play too often so that its mystery and beauty can be surprising each and every time.

It's a compilation, but a good one. I can listen to Warn in any combination, any combination at all.

There is no fault in music!  :)  As a listener, if you've found music that pleases your ear, then you're in the right spot. 

OTOH, I hope the sounds that are pleasing to my ear continue to evolve over time.  That's why I enjoy poking around in different places, expanding my musical vocabulary, finding & making new musical meaning by connecting old dots to new dots. 

But that process is a very, very personal thing.  So no one can ever say what is right for you -- except you.

At least that's how I think about it!

I agree.  I think Folk Art is one of Lovano's best records.
