I remember doing a thread like this years ago. Huh. Anyway, I wanted a spot to discuss new jazz releases and reissues being released in 2015. What say you?

Have any of y'all heard any of these and would like to discuss?

Brian Chipendale & Greg Saunier - s/t
Dave Douglas - High Risk
Robert Glasper Trio - Covered
Matthew Shipp Quartet - Our Lady Of The Flowers
Kamasi Washington - The Epic

Or... anything else?

ok, I'll start the convo...

 


Robert Glasper Trio's COVERED is really good. Like really really good. This is a trio recording live at Capital Studios to a small crowd. Basically, he takes some of the more experimental collaborations he did for his BLACK RADIO albums and strips them down for a trio.

I'm not familiar with his drummer Damion Reid but dude smokes. The drums on "I Don't Even Care" are frantic drum-n-bass and one has to wonder how he keeps it going. The track ends w/ a brief interpolation of The Roots' "you got me." It's awesome.

Glasper himself is insane. Like, you'll think "how can he do that w/ only 2 hands?" kind of stuff.

They also cover Radioheads' "Reckoner" and Musiq Soulchild's "So Beautiful" and tracks by John Legend and Bilal.

"In Case You Forgot" is a crazy 13 min... thing. I can't describe it. Part free jazz, part ballads, part modal decay.

LOUDER AND SEV WOULD BOTH BE INTERESTED TO KNOW that Glasper has played piano on Q-Tip's THE RENAISSANCE, and Kendrick's TPAB.

In fact this ends w a version of "Im dying of thirst"

Here's a vid of one of Jhane Aiko's "The Worst" from this performance: https://youtu.be/2g6MsY8vD1A

Good thread! Thanks for this I've been really looking for good contemporary stuff. Have you heard Kendrick Scott?

He's a drummer. Not really sure too much about him. I heard him on the radio the other day and it is one of the first things I've heard that is newer that caught my interest.

Here's a nice vid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5KJlS8pDSE

and here is the song that got me interested in the first place: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtoeuYm_eiI

I'm pretty interested in that Kamasi Washington album.

yeah, I wanna check that out too. I feel like I'll have to do each disc in seperate sittings, just out of the logistics of "free time" tho.

This is a good thread, noise, because, while I'm fairly familiar with a lot of older jazz, all the stuff that a lot of jazz fans know about, I am in the dark about new stuff. I look forward to recommendations from you and others.

word - I find it hard to keep up w/ new jazz releases honestly. I Feel like even stuff I"m into I might see somewhere and be like "damn that came out 2 years ago, how'd I miss that?" So yeah, that's kind of the goal of the thread, try to keep on top of interesting releases. Like I said, reissues as well.

While I am not a big fan of standards, or jazz singers, my wife and I enjoy going to hear Tianna Hall and her quartet perform when we can. http://www.tiannahall.com/

speaking of reissues...

John Coltrane's Quintet - So Many Things: The Europe Tour 1961

...looks really interesting. 4CD's and culled from various dates. Eric Dolphy, McCoy Tyner, Elvin Jones and Reggie Workman. Oddly there's a lot of overlap on this thing, w/ songs repeating from disc to disc, but I mean, SIX versions of "My Favorite Things" by Coltrane sounds essential to me. His take on that standard is just bliss to me.

listened to the first disc of the Kamasi Washington album. It's really good. Think Coltrane over long drawn pieces that also incorporate a choir and orchestra at parts. Impressive stuff.

The store that catered to jazz closed a couple of years ago. There's still a good rock/alternative record store open, but its jazz selection is not nearly as robust. Makes it doubly hard to keep up with jazz, new or old.

However, and this is a big however, there is an excellent jazz radio station in my new home town. I need to listen to this more often.

well holy crap, look what pfork reviewed today...

 


Duke Ellington
The Conny Plank Session
Grönland; 2015

Quote:
When the Conny Plank estate revealed that they have in their possession a recording of the experimental German producer and swing titan Duke Ellington in the studio together, it was indeed a surprise. But given the Duke's decades-long track record of taking creative risks, the two disparate minds coming together made a certain kind of sense.
Plank, who got his start as the soundman for famed German actress/singer Marlene Dietrich, was a maestro at multi-tracking, creating alien atmospheres for pioneering experimental rock acts such as Guru Guru, Cluster, Kraftwerk, and Neu!.
