    So odd.

    The final one is "KIND OF BLUE" by Miles Davis. Wonder what's going on with the hotlink pics? Oh well. Now you know. :)

    SWMBO is home from work, and we are headed out to "Mike's Huli Chicken" for some Jerk Chicken after a day of Reggae listening. Won't be back until about 7:30 Hawaiian, so you gents will most likely be fast asleep by them (12:30 AM Eastern).

    @KrisM really set me up for this today! :) Reggae albums and his recommendation for Jerked Chicken to follow. Why not indeed!

    "The Shape of Jazz to Come" really isn't that far out there as some of Ornette's later,"Free-er" recordings. The plastic Grafton Sax has it's own kind of tone that's well suited to the compositions,IMO. I had always been led to believe that Sun Ra was all sorts of weirdness until I took a shot on "Jazz in Silhouette",and now I really dig that album-just saying....

    It's a killer group. Sort of a super group if you will. BillyBatts turned me on to these guys a couple years ago.

    If I were forced to jettison 90% of the jazz I own, “Ah Um” would unquestionably be in the 10% I kept.

    I did a quick drill down on this in Discogs. The description says it is live recordings from 1967 & 69. How is the sound quality? I am always on the look out for recordings of Ellington alumni and Webster is no exception.

    Harmonically and line-wise, this type of music pioneered by Coltrane extended the jazz language. The guys here are all great musicians, but for me, wow, what they do just gets tiring. I know that many musicians and listeners though, are drawn to this type of sound. I can listen to it for a little while. But for me, the droning of the piano as Cables often plays the dominant in the bass under those chords, punctuated by cymbal crashes preceded by the crescendos of single strokes on the snare drum becomes a gauntlet though which to pass if I continue listening. The instrumentalists again, are all great players, and they do have some great ideas. The ensemble plays some great harmonies. But overall, the recording stays in the same realm. And frankly, do they ever really cook? Do they really get a good groove going anywhere, and somebody is, well...cooking? Certainly, the guys can blow. All strong players.
