Oooff! Old Tubey pointed me at this yesterday and I knew I had to link it here. Roll Eyes

Nice track. Lots of Herbie in there. It veers off into noodle land here and there. To me it's more lounge than Vanguard.  I know it's supposed to be jazz, but an edit version would be nice. I do like it.

It was that wicked bass line that did it for me. Nice splashes of synthetic sound in there too.

I found myself pointed in the direction of Henry Threadgill the other day. This was the second track of his I heard and it's a beauty. I looked further than "100 Year Old Game" but found most of the other stuff too abrasive for my liking. I guess jazz isn't really my thing...

A nice relaxed album featuring two fabulous guitarists. With thanks to Cool Cool Water for the heads up. Wink

What happened to all the jazz buffs on this forum? Anyway, this is a piece I was slated to play with a saxophonist colleague in a couple of week's time.

In the end we dropped it in favour of "Misty". It's a gorgeous instrumental all the same:

This is cheating, since "Jazz Thing" from Ultimate Spinach's 1968 album Behold and See is basically a pop song with a jazzy instrumental break. But it may serve to bring this topic back to life...

I've been building my nascent jazz collection over the last couple months. I recently started checking out the Blue Note Tone Poet series and the new Acoustic Sounds/Verve jazz reissues on vinyl. I also got the Bill Evans "Some Other Time: The Lost Session from the Black Forest" Record Store Day reissue this past weekend. I still don't know much about jazz, but I'm exploring and now own a bunch more of it.

I've yet to be bitten by the jazz bug so my interest is that of a passer-by peering in through the window. LOL

I got to hear this album opener yesterday, thanks to a former poster in this thread, and thoroughly enjoyed it (see wiki link for details):

Hard to go wrong with Art Blakey and/or Thelonious Monk.

I continue to enjoy my exploration of the different corners of jazz. Since my last post, I added a few more albums from the third Record Store Day installment, with Dexter Gordon, later Miles Davis, Charles Mingus and J.J. Johnson and Kia Winding.

Did you know Kai Winding had a US top ten hit in 1963 with "More"?

I believe he's also on Miles's Birth of the Cool...

I was listening to West Virginia NPR the other day and they played a Clarinet Concerto by Artie Shaw.  It was a classical music program but in introducing the number, the dj explained he blended elements of classical with jazz.

I did not know about Kai Winding's Top 10 hit. Thanks for the heads up. Both Winding and J.J. Johnson were on Brith of the Cool.

Thank you, GH. Talking of Kai Winding, this is one I bumped into while playing a muslcal word game at Hoffman (KW's solo starts at 1:30):

Heard this last night courtesy of Kapitan at BBT (thank you, that man).

The title track of Freddie Hubbard's 1970 album Red Clay features some stunning playing from all involved:
