Charlie Haden "The Montreal Tapes--Gonzalo Rubalcado" Verve cd

Front.jpg

booklet21-768x363.jpg

All these Montreal Tape releases are excellent. I may have to buy the Henderson one again--I can't seem to locate my copy. This piano trio is perhaps my favorite of the three piano trio releases in the series. . . but then I suspect I think that of each of the three when I play them. They are all excellent.

I like this one best as well and was pleasantly surprised by Rubalcabas piano playing. I did not knew the guy… the version of Vignette is beautiful.

Gerald Cleaver is really very good on this mainstream date.

Funny how "mainstream" changes its meaning.

To me it always meant this sort of thing:

‘Modern-mainstream’ seems to have morphed into ‘mainstream’. The latter I think of as Scott Hamilton, Buck Clayton, Ruby Braff etc. and if you are getting adventurous, Clark Terry/Bob Brookmeyer.

Urg. 

I picked the term as a less controversial alternative to "straight ahead", which always seems to get people talking about drum styles.

I just meant that it is post bop / hard bop. It isn't noise rock or avant garde jazz or other music I more commonly associate with the very talented Mr. C.

I should have just said post bop really. I mean, it is on High Note...

Anyway, currently having fun with this one:

David Murray and Milford Graves - Real Deal (DIW, 1994).

I've been enjoying Alves' work since @HutchFan mentioned them in a post a few weeks back. 

Currently on:

Dewey Redman - The Struggle Continues (ECM, 1982)

With thanks to @Д.Д. for recommending this excellent one. Very different to Redman's free-er '70s work.

Celeste Quartet, long familiar. The other stuff, not so much. Delights abound, not the least of which is Harry Carney at times getting downright...sexually intercoursal in his phrasing, if not his tone. People's impulses never change, but as the sensual stimuli of their environments change, so does the expressions. People can't play lise this any more without faking it, and this music is in no way fake!

Lee Konitz & Miles Davis / Teddy Charles & Jimmy Rainey - Ezz-Thetic (New Jazz)

R-4709245-1552046172-3983.jpeg.jpg

I am still not convinced that I understand why these sides are together on a single LP, but the first four tracks (the Konitz / Bauer ones with Davis as part of the arrangements) are so incredibly beautiful.
