So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

Since hearing a group led by Vijay Iyer playing Andrew Hill's music this past weekend, I have been in the mood to listen to Hill's music in my daily listening. Monday I started with the Black Fire sessions, then decided that I wanted to focus on the post Blue Note seventies recordings. 

Yesterday I listened to this one:

Excellent big band and one of my favorites in my stock.

Here are the others

Add this new one to your collection:

I have only heard it on itunes, but it's excellent, perhaps the best of all.

I forgot about "Groove Shop" which I also have in my collection (but I don't have Absolutely!)

Tommy Smith – Standards

R-2770446-1613553040-1919.jpg.3557df40ea662d10e39653ac2a9542c9.jpg

First listen (it is on Bandcamp).

Ew.

Great cover art, though 

I was obsessed with his performance on this record as a teenager.

For what it's worth, this was the one Tommy Smith album that made me sit up at the time
