    Dizzy and Miles

    These are two really good reads...

    Between themselves, directly connected, and all they touched who came before and after, you've got a pretty good chunk of the bloodline of Jazz.

    And of course you can spend an eternity watching every phase of their (and many others') careers on the 'tube...

    Jazz. I'm into it.

    Quincy troupe was a professor at the school I went to (UCSD). He claimed that he had heard some of the informal recordings between Davis and Hendrix.

    Yusef lateef was a professor at my very very small college at the time I was attending. He opened up a lot of doors for me, and for the world.

    Max Roach was down the road at UMASS at the time.

    I feel very lucky.

    This wasn't even his primary instrument, but I guess that is a slight, because he played so many. Google him please.



    If you can't feel that breath in your soul, then your are dead.



    I do finally feel that I'm at the point where I could take someone under my wings who gave a damn, and when She asked, I would respond, do you really feel like that, then well, listen to this and come back. And then, do you really feel like that? Then go listen to this, and please come back. Then, Do You Really Feel Like That? Then, don't come back. You have it.

    Same goes for skiing as well, but I've already done that. MI.

    If you want a little mind blow out, read the Mingus. It will hurt you.

    Fair warning.

    Yes, it's under that lamp by my bed. I resonate deeply.

    Milt Jackson "Wizard of the Vibes"... essentially Milt playing vibes with the Modern Jazz Quartet and then the Monk quartet. It tickles my brain...

    Night Music was too good to last - it was only around for a couple of seasons thirty or so years ago - but man, they had some unbelievably great stuff, on broadcast TV!

    The music was definitely eclectic, but there was a program with a few really nice tunes by Miles and his then crew...



    The Quintets will always be a gold standard in Jazz, but I dug this period of Miles.

    Just like all the others.

    I'm a hudge fan of George Benson's guitar playing. This song's a nice example. The whole album is pretty good. Featuring Ron Carter on bass.

    Nice, I know him from Miles in the Sky... Looks like I'll have to dig deeper.

    I like albums that are solid front to back. Put it in, hit play, and kick back and listen to the whole thing. No track skipping. That preservation hall one is definitely like that.

    I've heard of king oliver, but not familiar. Cueing up on the Nak.

    yep agreed, listening to single tracks is dumb for any genre, but especially for jazz.

    if you don't have the patience to sit down for an entire album it's not worth your time

    But that's why good radio stations should be listened to, through just one song and a good back announce, they'll expose someone you've never heard of and bam.

    That's how I discovered Pat Martino. Mind blowing stuff, amazing artist and story. Sad to hear the dude's in a rough patch right now.

    You make a good point, and a good dj will play tracks that flow together, not just jump around all crazy and discombobulated.

    The guy who led the band at my high school was a trumpeter and LOVED Chet. He made us listen to many, many Chet cuts. The album "Chet" is an interesting listen for sure.

    Any of you SLC mags ever attend the Jazz at the Sheraton series? They used to have some killer players come through town (presumably they still do.) Lots of great memories from HS and the U listening to masters in that ballroom.

    I think the last one I was around for was Christian McBride, an absolute monster.

    I wore this CD out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgJWXFW1vVc

    I remember seeing Herbie for the first time back when it was at the Hilton IIRC, among others such as Dave Brubeck, Chick Corea, John Pizarelli, Russell Malone.

    yep. what a fucking shame. didn't chet die (like many of the greats) at a relatively young age? i know he had a pretty troubled life, RIP.

    and yeah, one of the GOAT trumpeters. he definitely set a high mark.

    sorry for repping the new jazz so hard, there are just so many old timers whose repertoire ends with miles and bitches brew. wanna give the new pioneers some love, since they're doing legit stuff

    Went down the youtube hole tonight, starting with the Nubya Garcia Tiny Desk Home, then the Julian Lage Tiny Desk from the archives, which led me to this:



    One of my favorite guitarists and this trio is incredible.
