Tony Williams Lifetime – Believe It
An early view into the evolution of the amazing Allan Holdsworth on guitar. I love this album, others are not so kind.
Herbie Hancock – Thrust
Herbie Hancock – Crossings
Thrust is the funk, Crossings is the jazz.
Lonnie Liston Smith with John Abercrombie – Afro Blue
Gary Versace with John Abercrombie – Time and Again
John Abercrombie doesn’t have the name recognition of Metheny, Scofield or Frisell, but he’s on a lot of albums…there’s a lot to listen to. Gary Versace is an organ player he gigs with a lot, I never hear this album mentioned.
Pat Metheny – Unity Band
New album, only few days old. More quality from Pat…
Steve Vai – Flexable
My first exposure to Mr. Vai, still holds up after all these years. This is still his best solo album for me, I don’t really like all those electronic gizmos he uses on his guitar. It was nice when he first discovered ’em, but they don’t stand the test of time.
Edit: I own an original vinyl copy of the album on Urantia Records. I was that hip and so was my local record store at Brunswick Shopping Center in North Brunswick, NJ.
UK – Danger Money
Danger Money has been out of print on CD for years, what’s up with that? Terry Bozzio!
Terje Rypdal – Descendre
Terje Rypdal – Waves
Joseph Jarman & Marilyn Crispell – Connecting Spirits
John McLaughlin – Belo Horizonte
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.
