Oh yeah, I do like Coltrane but not as mad about him as most Jazz fans are. I much prefer Stan Getz to be honest. My most endured Jazz artist so far is Miles Davis, Im mostly into the later, weirder, more experimental Jazz stuff & even the fusion side of things with Tortoise & the likes.
Anyway, I actually got a live version of the album on Play.com for only £2.99 which is pretty good.

Listening to Monk's Music, the drum solo in Epistrophe makes me sad over how underrated jazz drummers like Art Blakey are.

Brilliant Corners (Monk), for the thousandth time. Pannonica is simply breathtaking. Anybody know where I can buy a celesta? (Or where I get get a few thousand bucks to buy it?)

Seconded! Im a massive fan of Miles Davis & he is my most endured Jazz artist. I much prefer his later work, which was what I started on, as opposed to the earlier stuff. I have a much bigger liking for the sort of 'on the edge' stuff he did in the 70s & 80s. My favourite album is 'On The Corner'. I also love 'Doo Bop' which was his last album , released posthumously in 1991.

Um, no I think I added it to downloads, Im gonna have to get out my external hard drive when Im off on sunday as Im pretty much out of memory at the moment. I just dont like having it out all the time as Im worried itll break(Ive heard they can get broke very easily).
Yeah, I reckon 'Lawn Boy' & 'A Picture Of Nectar' are the ones that you would like the most. You should also download 'Billy Breathes' though. I have quite a lot of Phish albums on my WMP but havent listened to all of them yet.

:bowdown:

He is definately a legend.

I tend to like individual songs more than albums when it comes to jazz music, and for me "Take Five" and "Freddie Freeloader" are my absolute favourites by Miles Davis.

zeppy111 06-06-2009 12:22 PM

Gave the album I bought a few weeks back a spin just now.

Miles Davis - 'Round About Midnight

Yeah I bought it about a month or so ago now. I think Miles gets this kind of 'soothing' sound from his trumpet right at the start of the album which is (as always) excellent.

Aye let us know how you get on with them, also did you listen to the Trey Anastasio songs I posted links for?

Really? No Im definitely more of an album man, obviously I like individual songs but notice how my last fm is usually filled up with one particular artists, its because I dont do skipping like a hip kid.
Take Five? Thats by Dave Brubeck. Still a f*cking great song though. You know I was buying cds on amazon one month & had about a fiver left, had got everything I wanted (at the time) & was just looking at the 'what other customers bought' lists & actually did a blind buy on Dave Brubeck's 'Time Out' album. I had no idea who he was at the time of purchase or any of the music on the album but out of all the blind purchases I've done (& I do them all the time) this is definitely one of the best.
Talking of blind purchases, this month I did a blind purchase on an album by Mark Lanegan & Isobell Campell called 'Sunday At Devil Dirt'. I knew who Mark Lanegan was but didnt really dig the Screaming Trees that much but now I have a totally new appreciation for Mark Lanegan, of whom I knew had solo material but never thought I would ever like it as much as I liked this album:


http://liukchik.files.wordpress.com/...l-d-432630.jpg

EDIT: This may sound ridiculous to other posters (& f*cking ridicule it if you like!) but I thought that Mark Lanegan's voice was (at times) sort of a cross between Nick Cave & Johnny Cash. Concurr, anyone?

feedbacker 06-12-2009 12:16 PM

Worked into the rotation the last few weeks:

Eric Dolphy - Out to Lunch
Grant Green - the Complete Quartet with Sonny Clark (mostly Disc 1)
Lee Morgan - The Sidewinder
Enrico Rava Quintet - The Words and the Days
Rova/Orkestrova - Electric Ascension

it's sweeeeeeeeeeeet.

Mirrorball95 06-26-2009 04:00 PM

I love this thread, and again had forgotten I had actually made it lol. It truly is a challenge for me not to be tempted to jot down every single album I see that I havent heard yet.

Anyway after nearly a month of listening to no Jazz :yikes:. No idea why, just came about after a ZZ Top and Dire Straits binge started to surface.
This is an album lead by Saxophonist Michael Brecker, and features a cream of artists I already love such as guitarist Pat Metheny, Joey Calderazzo on piano, bassist Dave Holland & drummer Jack De Johnette. All musicians on this album are on top form and all have their impressive moments at different points. After all, any album with Pat Metheny involved is bound to be pretty awesome in my book.
My long overdue return to Jazz:

What Jazz Album is Lost Gold Records Listening to?
 
We are currently listening to From Sea to Sea, Bobby Darin's live album with classics like Mac the Knife and Dream Lover. Next up? Some good old Bing Crosby. Long Live the 50s? hah

Lost Gold Records are purveyors of rare music with artists from Jazz to New Age to Country, so we listen to TONS of different music!

Engine 06-29-2009 04:36 PM

Your collection needs..
 
..some Fletcher Henderson Orchestra. Any recordings will do. I've only got this stuff on vinyl re-issue and its obviously old (like mid-1920s). Maybe bop or avante-garde or fusion fans won't get into this -- but for me it was love at first listen.

http://www.pas.org/Museum/tour/image...rsonDriggs.jpg

That's Louis Armstrong 3rd from left.
