fent99 Posted October 15, 2011 Author Report Share Posted October 15, 2011 (edited) First listen, no peaking. This is a nice test. A lot of the soprano didn't appeal to me, but there's an awful lot to like about this BFT. Thanks! Track 4 - I'm in. I swear I was listening to this recently. I recognize that crying melody. Love that tone. A bit like Billy Mitchell, but more forceful. I'm leaning Illinois Jacquet (a guy I'm only recently getting more familiar with). Some touches of Lockjaw, but not enough triplets. Track 10 - Doesn't hit me. Jan Garbarek? Meant to add some more comments but been away... Don't know enough of either of Mitchell or Jacquet to say if it sounds like them for 4 and you're close with Garbarek but no cigar as yet Track 1 reminds me of Donald Byrd's "I'm Tryin' to Get Home" session. I'll need to hear that, though not something I'm familiar with Okay, I've tried. I really really tried. I guess there's still a lotta month left and maybe reading the comments will put some different angles on this, but.... I have yet to make it all the way through one song without hitting the "next" button. Either because it's too noisy or too repetitive or it could be that I'm just being a pissy little jazz snob. But I'm not giving up, and hopefully by month's end, I'll have something more than "NMCOT" and "DKDC" and "WTF???" Uh, Oh... I love literally every song on this BFT. This is one of the most enjoyable and interesting BFTs of all time, to me. I am not having much luck identifying any of the musicians, except for Track #8, which I was able to identify by artist, composer and song. I am playing this BFT for pleasure in the car, repeatedly. Big Al, did you get the same music that I did? It's interesting how different listeners can have such different reactions. Phew! Taste is a wonderfull thing Edited October 15, 2011 by fent99 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
