    Not my favorite of Weber's, but one of my most favorite song titles ever: "Death in the Carwash." :D

    The Colours of Chloë is still my favorite Weber recording.

    I am a Bill Frisell fan, but some of his early stuff deserves that title!

    Last one of the evening before I tune out and go classical:

    Sadly I missed this work's US debut at the Detroit Jazz Festival (when Pat Metheny was artist in residence)--I wasn't available to head down there that weekend, although I'd thought of getting a VIP pass if I could have made it.

    I can't believe I missed mentioning this one:

    upload_2018-2-25_20-21-22.png

    I came into this backwards--somewhere I'd read about Holland cutting an album that featured Eubanks, so this is how I ended up discovering this record.

    Holland, Eubanks and Marvin "Smitty" Smith are also featured on Eubanks' first Blue Note recording Turning Point.

    If you like this you should also check out Holland's 2013 release Prism. It also features Kevin Eubanks on guitar along with Craig Taborn on piano and Eric Harland on drums.

    This. Beast of Kommodo is the best song on any ECM record I've ever heard (approximately 40-50). Play it loud, cranked to 11!

    I do need to listen to more Jan Barbarek. I'll have to check that one out.

    I listened to Holland's Extensions last week. I like that one a lot.

    I pulled out some Weber too, I'm listening to: Eberhard Weber - Yellow Fields

    Terje Rypdal this evening...

    Apparently, "Per Ulv" in Norwegian refers to Wile E. Coyote...? I don't normally rely on Wikipedia, but that is the best I could come up with. Track 8 is "One for the Roadrunner," so maybe there is something to that.

    Nik Bärtsch's Ronin - Holon (2008) is playing right now. Damn, it's tough to describe this one, but it's very interesting. Thom Jurek at All Music Guide describes it better than I ever could. I also have Llyrìa (2015, in 24/88.2) queued up past this one.

    Sad to have missed this 1975 Detroit ECM show.

    That is a solid lineup! Wow. I wonder which venue it was at. 8041 Harper Ave. is an empty lot now, but that could have been a theater or just the promoter's office for all we know. That wasn't Harpo's, as that was on the opposite side of Harper and further north.

    I had this spinning last night. Open Letter, Ralph Towner. The closing track "Nightfall" also appears two years later on Oregon's Northwest Passage.

    I cannot say enough good things about the recent Jack DeJohnette release In Movement. The new release Jarrett combo After The Fall is very, very good too.

    One of my earliest ECM purchases--I like this one a lot more now than when I first bought it used in the late 90s. I'll probably follow this up with another Ralph Towner recording.
