Robert Fripp – the Wine of Silence

“Music is the cup that holds the wine of silence;
sound is that cup, but empty;
noise is that cup, but broken.”
-Robert Fripp

Robert Fripp – the Wine of Silence

Pleasant orchestrations of Fripp Soundscapes. Orchestrations of Frippertronics would be amazing, but this isn’t it.

I love that quote, it’s been on the back of my front door for 19 years.

Herbie Hancock – Sextant

The first track is the twisted sister of Kraftwork and Pete Namlook…Pete wishes his electro jazz was this cool. The other two tracks are slamming post-Bitches Brew funk jazz from the early ’70s.

Ahmad Jamal – A Chamber Music

My, my…what a hip little trio, I think this is out of print and it shouldn’t be. Some of this piano music Gil Evans orchestrated for Miles Ahead by Miles Davis.

Chick Corea – My Spanish Heart
Chick Corea – Return to Forever
Joe Farell – Moon Germs

Stanley Clarke is on all three albums. He’s a phenomenal upright bass player, but in retrospect, a bit of a novelty on electric bass guitar. Herbie Hancock and Jack DeJohnette are the bees knees on Moon Germs.

Chick Corea – Friends
Jimmy Lyons & Sunny Murray – Jump Up
Cecil Taylor – Conquistador
the Microscopic Quartet – Friday the 13th
Paul Motian – Monk and Powell
World Saxophone Quartet – Moving Right Along

For years I’ve posted what I’ve listened to during the day. I’ve been doing this on Facebook since Fall 2008, now I’ve decided to start doing this on the blog.
