not a 2015 album, but a 2004 album... BUT I just found out that Kamasi Washington was in a quartet Young Jazz Giants that released a s/t album in 2004... also in the group was Thundercat under his birthname. WOAH. I'm gonna have to track this shit down.

NPR put out a 2 hr video of Kamasi Washington's release party show for The Epic.

http://www.npr.org/event/music/40206...pic-in-concert

Totally worth watching. Great setlist.

Irritating, why?

I dont dislike vocals in jazz really, but i would say 90% of what i listen to is instrumental.

here a portuguese jazz band...red trio :

RED trio is a group that presents a multiplicity of approaches to music playing and composition in real time by improvisation.

Formed by three musicians from the new improvised music Lisbon scene from an idea by Hernâni Faustino, RED trio features Rodrigo Pinheiro at the piano, Hernani Faustino at the doublebass and Gabriel Ferrandini at the drums. RED Trio explores one of the most prolific jazz formations: piano/doublebass/drums. The trio's music is characterized for being fast, energic, highly focused, dynamic and sometimes nervous and violent. Most of RED trio influences are based on jazz and especially on improvised music. A three part counterpoint oscillating between the most subtle sound to a sonic burst full of violence and intensity.

from this year...live in munich

cool, thanks!


Also of note is Vol 4 of Miles Davis' Bootleg Series, out this past week. It's live at the Newport Jazz Fest, w/ dates from 1955-75. I'm gonna check that out soon.

Also, Brian Charette's new album sounds interesting.

I had completely forgotten that The Bad Plus put out a new album. It's a collab w/ Joshua Redman and it's really nice. Both parties meet halfway and sound totally comfy together.

great trio with joe morris, evan parker, and nate wooley

"There are two currents of thought concerning the relationship between jazz and free improvisation – one includes the second in the domain of the first and the other arguments that improvised music is now an independent field, generally with no idiomatic jazz ties. This super trio with Evan Parker, Joe Morris and Nate Wooley seems to fit in the first thesis"

and this is a great album

I've seen Wooley with Ken Vandemark, that was really different, very angular improv and have also seen Joe Morris solo. Not my favorite guitarist, but still a good set

kris davis infrasound-save your breath

kris davis on piano with 4 bass clarinets (Ben Goldberg, Andrew Bishop, Oscar Noriega, Joachim Badenhorst) with organ (Gary Versace), guitar (Nate Radley), drums (Jim Black)

rock influenced jazz/improv. and the rock influence doesn't sound corny(!) as it tends to. good tunes and good playing.
it also has one of my favorite song titles-The Ghost of Your Previous Fuck Up

mario pavone trio-blue dialect

mario pavone on bass matt mitchell on piano and tyshawn sorey on drums

really good free jazz piano trio that plays a lot in time but plays free time sometimes.

mary halvorson-reverse blue

mary halvorson on guitar Chris Speed on clarinet, Eivind Opsvik bass & Tomas Fujiwara drums

they all write tunes. free playing not free playing. they even have a song based on john coltrane's chords from giant steps.
mary is one of the most interesting guitar players around these days.




speaking of the bad plus they released their interpretation of stravinsky's the rite of spring. a piano trio doing an orchestral piece.
it works. i think it was last year tho.




noisereductions, ill have to check out the bad plus joshua redman

yeah that was last year - but certainly worth noting. One of the things I love about The Bad Plus is how they've been doing a lot of 'concept' albums in recent years to sort of challenge themselves. There was the covers album w/ vocalist (For All I Care), the Rite Of Spring, and now the album w/ Joshua Redman. I feel like these experiments then in turn have an effect on their 'proper' albums.

Anyway, the opening track on The Bad Plus Redman is one of the smoothest things I've ever heard them pull off. And I don't mean like 'smooth jazz,' I mean like you just wanna put it on repeat and zone out for hours. Just gorgeous.

shameless self-promotion, I started working on a jazz site/blog last month:

thelowendtheoryofnoise.weebly.com

There's not a ton of content there yet, but the idea is basically just me writing up my thoughts on my jazz CD collection as I'm listening to stuff. Basically for me to keep track of album chronology and what I like about each, but also encourages me to actually actively listen to the CD's I buy, and also spend time focusing on particular CD's instead of just binge-buying piles of them and never finding time to listen.

The blog section is a bit more random thoughts on jazz stuff and reminders/heads-up on new releases.

Oh and as I add write-ups I'm also continually adding tracks from each CD to an ever-expanding Spotify playlist that you can stream there as well.
