Well, I was going to post a YouTube from the 1979 album "Exhibition" by John Serry, but what I found there was less than stellar quality. To the best of my knowledge the Serry albums were never released as CD, so by definition they have to be gleaned from vinyl, and I have an excellent transfer system, so I just made my own YouTube video specifically to post here (although I also intend to post them to another thread debating the audio qualities of belt driven vs direct driven turntables)


Anyhoo, this is the jazz (probably more fusion) album I have spinning at the moment

Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall... I remember waiting for at least a year for this album to be released after the masters were found. The story goes that they were in a batch of masters slated to be destoyed when someone removed them, wrapped them and stashed them. Great album!

That is a fantastic album. I found it by surprise, as I was a new fan of the bebop / hard-bop style of jazz at the time it was released, but purchased it because of the story of how it saw the light of day.


The current album I'm playing: Herbie Hancock - Head Hunters. It's a fusion masterpiece. It's also one of the few fusion albums I own that my wife enjoys. I think she just puts up with Miles's electric period.

I just got John Serry's new album, "The Shift", I'm still in the first track and it's very nice. It's not nearly as energetic as his early albums (so far, again I'm only 1 track deep, track 2 is coming up) but that's ok, it's more conventional jazz and less fusion-y than "Exhibition" or "Jazziz".

Kind of Blue is such a great album... and not because I think about what other people think when I say it's such a great album... because I can listen to it over and over and like different parts at different times. Haven't listened in a while so maybe it's time to do that again now.

Been giving a lot of different jazz albums listens lately, but Saxophone Colossus and Way Out West by Sonny Rollins are what I'll say for now. Both have been awesome for me lately. I'm still a jazz novice, though.
