@Satan: dude, that track he recorded over the phone from jail!!! So ridiculous. And what about that uh "love song" where he's like "girl, I swear yr hotter than campfire / we can stay up all night like vampires" haha, he's so on the cusp of brilliance and absurdity at all times. Shit's awesome.

Cheer-Accident "Fear Draws Upon Misfortune"

The Earl Of Slander 04.13.2010 08:22 PM


First time out, another LP rescued from the crates in my parent's old place. Seems pretty sick. I can never really love the vibes though. They always just sound a bit corny and easy listening, seemingly inevitably. This is a record with Cannonball Adderley, Wynton Kelley and Art Blakey on it though, so you know it's gotta be worth looking past that...

noisereductions 04.13.2010 08:28 PM

^seriously? Gatdamn, I love me some vibes!! You need to hear "Montara" by Bobby Hutcherson. Holy shit.

maybe the fact that you're listening to a commercial vibist who wants to sound like that is the reason. if you think bobby hutcherson or khan jamal sounds like easy listening i'll die a little inside

noisereductions 04.13.2010 08:33 PM

dude, Hutcherson is fucking ridiculous. Seriously. Check it.

OK, point taken, this is pretty great. Think I've actually heard the Madlib remix before. Thing is, I often do like vibes as far as being a cool sound, especially for use in hip-hop samples/remixes. I love that shit. So chilled and floaty. It's just that whenever they're put in a traditional jazz context, as they often are, like with ^, it somehow bugs me. They're so much less weighty and expressive than something like acoustic sax or bass or piano or whatever, and a large part of what I love about classic just like 'straight up' jazz is that sound of a few dudes just listening to each other in a room and making this really beautiful, or burning, or whatever, but IMMEDIATE music just using the pure acoustic sounds of their instruments. But then you shove some vibes in there, and as much as they can be cool in a fusioney or lite-jazz context, they always somehow rub me as being so out of place and expressionless and just vibe killing (that wasn't actually an intended pun, honest). I don't know, maybe I could be swung over, but it hasn't happened yet...

This Roots remix is sick.

now I'm listening to Donald Byrd's STEPPING INTO TOMORROW over and over

The Earl Of Slander 04.13.2010 08:51 PM

Now see, both great tracks for sure, but that's largely for me because I mean like shit, it's got Hubbard, Rivers, Hill, Davis, Chambers... But the actual vibes part? Not crazy about it. Maybe with time it'll come...

Whereas here I have no problem with the vibes, because they just seem to fit better. I know I'm sounding like a bit of jazz fascist here probably, which I really don't want to.... I guess I just kind of have different places in my listening for more classic sounding jazz and weird fusiony stuff, and I can't yet slot vibes comfortably into the former.

noisereductions 04.13.2010 08:53 PM

^guy, no matter how many times I hear "Stepping Into Tomorrow" I Still don't understand....... was Byrd from the future? Like what the fuck? That track is soooooooooooooooooo fucking insane. How did he come up with that shit? Oh man! I love it..
