I enjoyed grindy's Billy Bang rec, especially the deeply soothing quiet part near the end of the third track, and the delightful violin outburst at the end of the record

Fred Anderson - Timeless

Bass – Harrison Bankhead
Drums, Percussion – Hamid Drake
Tenor Saxophone – Fred Anderson

https://open.spotify.com/album/1oVvRdAr1insHAiC3PishL

Effortlessly inventive and beautiful.
Absolutely amazing, telepathic interplay.
All three are god tier but Hamid Drake's drumming stands out especially to me.

Hamid Drake is one of those dudes who you can go through his discography and pick out anything he plays on and it’s going to be ****ing great.

The Lost Septet Miles Davis (2020, Sleepy Night Records)

Recent release. Recorded in 1971, at the beginning of Miles' rock phase. One of the aspects that intrigues me about the septet is how Miles got Keith Jarrett to go electronic - and, of course, what he did once he got there. Jarrett never did it again after splitting with the band. They all have great chops and are freewheeling in a very late 60s/early 70s funk way. The organ/vibes seem to hold it all down on initial listenings but they do trade off roles throughout. Speaking of keys I wonder if Miles ever asked Steve Winwood to jam. He'd have fit right in.

Band:
Miles Davis, trumpet
Gary Bartz, sax
Keith Jarrett, keys
Michael Henderson, electric bass
Ndugu Leon, drummer
Don Alias, percussion
James Mtume, percussion

Gerry Mulligan Meets Stan Getz

Old school stuff, not terribly exciting but cool af and of course very well played by those masters. The sounds of baritone and tenor sax compliment each other beautifully.

Slippery When Wet by Bud Shank

This should appeal to fans of both Getz and Baker

After the Fall Keith Jarrett

A conservative collection of well-played standards plus a stupid Christmas carol

I like Jarrett but I wish he would shut the **** up.
