From @dougcrates too, who I noticed posted it.

What's your view? Strong? Weak? Interesting? Go back to tenor please? Team Andre3000? 

I've only had one listen myself and thought it had depth, deserving of more listens, but possibly not quite the full deal. Perhaps too in love with the calming potentialities of the flute. Maybe it gradually opens though. I like Hutchings a lot and this is an interesting facet to him.

I've listened to it a few times already and like it a lot.  Maybe I caught it at the right time as the warm, textural vibe of the album is a nice counterpoint to the crazy last month I've had working on a big project.  

I haven't given the Andre 3000 an open minded listen yet.  I was a huge fan of Outkast since their first single in 1993 and Andre became one of my favourite rappers but I'm not ready to embrace his flute endeavours.

Thanks! I'll definitely revisit.

The Andre 3000 thing was a joke, although it is interesting that they both made the same step at the same time.

And Andre is on the Shabaka album, one track

Isn't Shabaka on the Andre album too?

I don't know but it would make sense. Evidently, according to Shabaka yesterday talking to GP, we're calling all this stuff Ambient Jazz. If it means the death of Spiritual Jazz as a catch all label I'm on board

Hooray I own an original pressing. I think this one of Noah’s more accessible works. It’s one my favorites anyway. 

Very nice, originals don't come cheap. I envy you as a Base owner...love Ric Colbeck on that

How does that one sound? The original sounds nice (for an ESP record).

Now spinning:

To be honest I haven't really noticed either way, my expectations are never too high with ESP. I need to relisten

At the Shabaka Big Ears concert, my preferred seating at the Bijou Theater (a balcony above the right side of the stage) was blocked off and reserved for some "VIPs." So I went to the Balcony on the other side. I assume it was for Andre 3000 and his entourage, who also was performing at the Festival. The theater was kept very dark throughout the concert, so you could not see who it was, and at the end of the concert when the lights came up, the VIPs had been safely escorted away (whew!).

Up with Donald Byrd (Verve)

Lou Donaldson, Musty Rusty (Cadet)

Listening to the Base now @Pim. It sounds pretty good I have to say

I have tickets for Shabaka in London in a few weeks but the Barbican venue doesn't have boxes so Andre 3000 will have to slum it with the rest of us in the unlikelihood he turns up 😀

Yes, Andre 3000 stole my seat. But seriously, the Shabaka concert at Big Ears was a great concert, one of the very best I heard at the Festival.

That's good to hear. I'm excited to hear how he presents his new music
