Default What Are You Listening To Jazztravaganza!

We had one for just about everything else, might as well put one in this dead subforum.

"A Y," by Albert Ayler, off of New York Eye And Ear Control. This is either some crazyass free jazz explosion, or just a normal explosion. It's not on Youtube, but I have a Grooveshark link for anyone who wants to listen to this 20 minutes of awesome.

Man, Ayler never ceases to amaze me. I like how if you listen to a lot of his music, then you can catch motifs of his playing. I can definitely hear a lot of "Saints" in this song. Regardless, it's a piece that I'll have to track down, good post, Blarobbarg.

Right now, I'm listening to Ken Vandermark's Sun Ra cover group called Spaceways Incorporated (I think they've also done a collaboration with Zu, which I'm going to find immediately after finishing this post) and their saxophone heavy version of "Alice in My Fantasies."

Oh look, this one's actually on Youtube:

Miles Davis and Charles Mingus are the only jazz musicians I've listened to. Would like to look into more, found them great so far. Really enjoyed Mingus Ah Um.

Part of the fun of jazz, for me, is the hunt. I have, for the most part, gone it alone looking for jazz I like. I suggest going onto Last.FM and listening to as much jazz as possible that is connected to those two artists. I highly suggest Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, and Bill Evans and jumping off points.

Anyway, this is what I'm listening to. Contemporary Noise Quintet. It's jazz, and it's new, but I have no idea what particular subgenre you'd place it under. Not nu jazz. And despite the name, not noise jazz or anything like that. It doesn't really matter, it's awesome. Halfway through it turns into free jazzy craziness.

^Nice! I'm definitely going to check that album out.

If you like that, you might like Ilhan Ersahin's Istambul Sessions with Erik Truffaz. I was absolutely in love with this album last year:

Some new stuff... I've found Mr. Shipp to be one of the more innovative/interesting musicians out of the newer string of jazz musicians (along with Colin Stetson). This piece kind of reminds of Schoenberg's piano-oriented work.

Anyways, I recommend looking into either Nu Bop, Art of the Improviser, or New Orbit if you're interested.



And some old stuff... This is one of my favorite pieces by Mingus, but this version in particular is my favorite... especially with the instrumental "falling out" between Dolphy and Jordan.

Ah, Shipp is great! I was actually thinking of mentioning him in this very thread.

Really good call on Contemporary Noise Quintet by the way, Blaro! I DL'd that album earlier today and am loving it.

Yeah, it's fantastic. The way that they have crazy avant garde improvisation with these beautiful melodies underneath is just awesome. Their work as a Quartet and Sextet are quite good as well.

That song you posted was great, by the way... will have to track them down.

Daley... who?

And today has been a jazzy day of epic proportions. It's been all over the map. From 20's big band to modern jazztronica to 80's fusion. Here's some highlights of the day.

Fletcher Henderson's "King Porter Stomp." This is a Jelly Roll Morton song, but is done quite well by Henderson.


Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers' "Moanin'. " Not much to say about this. Blakey was a legendary drummer and band leader. His songs are great.


The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble's "Pearls For Swine." It's like... glitchy post rock, plus heavily distorted industrial music, plus experimental jazz. I love this band.


Return To Forever, "The Magician." Return To Forever is apparently an 80's jazz fusion band fronted by Chick Corea. I didn't know about them until today when I heard them. This is more instrumental rock than jazz, but because of some interesting call-and-response work between Corea's keyboard and Al Di Meola's electric guitar, I felt it deserved a place in this post.
