This is like the Classical Music Thread the one to discuss jazz music. Already promised to start the thread some time ago…, so finally delivering on the promise…
Let me immediately put some content in the thread. Yves Theiler Trio is a great trio playing a very dynamic form of modern jazz. With the power of a rock trio.
Give them a try
Came across this site today - Japanese Jazz, spiritual jazz, even mushroom Jazz!
also these guys rock
GoGo Penguin - Garden Dog Barbecue Live Session
Indeed have seen them twice live and live it’s even more enthralling…
My wife invited me to see them and I refused. (Then found out how good they are.)
Did the same with the brilliant Robocobra Quartet too!
Please let me know when they’re next on in Manchester or nearby Lancaster.
I just picked this up online:
Having only just ‘found’ Jazz in the last few years this thread will certainly help me explore deeper into the genre. Thanks @BertBird for starting this. I had been hoping for this thread for a while.
Just discovered Esbjorn Svensson Trio on YouTube
Very careful players and lovely construction of songs
Currently listen8ng to them via tidal …
Remarkable group. I’m not a fan of much modern jazz, whatever that is, but EST made sense to me.
Released 2015 the Copenhagen quartet are in fine form on this album. A delightful blend of ambient minimalism and tribal undercurrents underpin mellifluous, saxophone-led melodies makes this a fine listen.
Actually the Concorde Club is on the road to Eastleigh.
If you like Brad Mehltau, you will also like this one. The style of the album is very close to the Ode album of Brad. I like it a lot…
From Modern Jazz to Free Jazz (1957-1959) - La Grande Histoire du Jazz
Box Set Le Chant du Monde. 25 CDs
I’m a jazz ignoramus, but I heard this today while getting my fix at my Naim dealer. It’s terrific, especially Growlin’ Dan. Mr. Google tells me she’s from just down the road – Miami-born and bred, of French/Haitian extraction.
My favorite of Chick’s work, something apart from his natural sound, sax is gorgious and the blend of all musician is one.
European jazz and African style merged in a wonderful way, what performers they are too, go ahead, don’t wait!
For anyone who enjoyed the Don Rendell/Ian Carr vinyl reissues of their EMI Landsdowne Series output, there’s another classic Landsdowne LP that has just been reissued, this time from Canadian label Return To Analog; Guy Warren’s Afro-Jazz.
It also features playing from the cream of British jazz at the time - Don Rendell, Ian Carr, Trevor Tomkins, Michael Garrick, Dave Green and Amancio D’Silva. Originals are very hard to come by and AFAIK it has never been reissued until now. It’s limited to only 500 copies so don’t hang around. I ordered a copy but it hasn’t arrived yet, so no idea on how well done the reissue is, so fingers crossed…
