listening to…September 14-30, 2012

Steve Lacy – the Straight Horn of Steve Lacy/Reflections

The Straight Horn of Steve Lacy features Charles Davis on baritone saxophone resulting in a unique sound…the front line of soprano and baritone saxophone playing a few Monk tunes plus Charlie Parker’s Donna Lee. Reflections is an all Monk program.

Joe Morris – Eloping With The Sun (Ritti Records)

Eloping With The Sun = Free jazzer Joe Morris (banjo, banjouke), William Parker (sintir) and Hamid Drake (frame drum). Very hip and groovy, even.

John Stowell/Michael Zilber – Shot Through With Beauty (Origin)

I think the world of John Stowell, he’s such a wiz with chord voicings. Guitar players know about him because he’s done some ear opening vids on jazz guitar, but the rest of the world hasn’t quite discovered him yet.

Stan Getz – My Foolish Heart (Hyena)

Stan Getz and Richie Bierach with the kick ass rhythm section of Dave Holland and Jack DeJohnette.

Music Revelation Ensemble – In the Name of… (DIW/Columbia)

James Blood Ulmer group with Sam Rivers on three tracks. I’m not sure this is essential for Rivers fans.

John Coltrane – the John Coltrane Qt Plays (Impulse)
John Coltrane – First Meditations (Impulse)
John Coltrane – Transition (Impulse)
John Coltrane – Sun Ship (Impulse)
John Coltrane – Coltrane (Impulse)
John Coltrane – Expression (Impulse)

I thought I’d grab a handful of Coltrane for the road, not realizing his birthday was just a few days away and there would be a full day of birthday broadcast on WKCR.

Chim Chim Cheree on the John Coltrane Qt Plays has a soprano sax meltdown that I never hear anybody mention.

To Be from Expression is such an amazing and unique track, I listened to it quite a few times.

Love from First Meditations is such a beautiful tune.

..and a bunch of other stuff too.
