Jazz: Currently Spinning

Recommended Posts

@@soundfan , going by the quality and frequency of your postings, I had this image that you listened to music as a full time day-job - paid to spend time with your records, clean them ultrasonically, research and buy more music, offer up links to help other access new music from emerging jazz artists, and foster the development of music through linking to bandcamp and suggesting buying music from them!  Hearing that you have a regular job to get back to shatters the dream for me.

 

I suppose similarly, there are whole generations of kids out there thinking they can all be computer game developers when they grow up and similarly,  I thought I could 'hifi' my way through latter life sustainably. Back to work for me now too.

 

No mate, I'm just a regular guy with a huge love of music, and play it whenever the opportunity arises.  :)  Like you all here, just like to share what I have been listening too. I spend more time finding and listening to "new" music than I do playing the vinyl or cd's that I do own. And if something really floats my boat I usually purchase it. 

Although vinyl is still easily my favourite source, I'm not anal about the format these days, and have no hesitation about buying a CD, or downloading music and burning a hard copy. In the end it's the music that counts. To me anyway.

 

There is a post I made a couple of days ago, linking to a brilliant jazz blog. I've downloaded and burnt so much music the last few days from that blog, it's not funny. 

 

Music is for sharing.

Sonny_Rollins-Way_Out_West_(album_cover)

 

On OJC reissue vinyl. Sounds great. A young Ray Brown shows his immense talent. Shelly Manne is inventive behind the kit. Sonny cooks as always.

Paul Bley Trio â€Žâ€“ Closer

ESP Disk, US 1966

ESP Disk, Japan 1975

 

 

 

I was lucky, I picked up a good copy of Bley's Barrage last year at the markets in Paris. Was only about $20 and I was expecting an original ESP disk to be closer to $80.

Terumasa Hino: Hogiuta

 

(released in '76 on the East Wind label)

 

TERUMASA HINO â€“ Trumpet, Fluegelhorn, Percussion, Composer, Voices
CECIL McBEE â€“ Bass (Acoustic), Voice
MOTOHIKO HINO â€“ Drums, Percussion, Voices
MTUME â€“ Percussion, Conga, Voices

 

Last one for the night. I have just taken steps to purchase this wonderful album on vinyl.  Hard to categorise, but fusion/soul-jazz would be close, but it's mellow,groove ridden...and outstanding.

 

Well known in Japan, Hino's a fantastic trumpeter, and you can hear the Miles Davis influences through-out. The rhythm section is kick ass too, and Mtume (who has played with Miles) and Motohiko Hino offer up some great touches with percussion.

Thanks @@pulinap and @@mrbuzzardstubble

 

The orange bowl is from Kosta Boda, well spotted. 

 

I've got a few Kosta Boda pieces and also from Borowski Glass in Germany. I get them from Peter's of Kensington. They also make nice gifts.

 

Closer to home, I have a few from Keith Rowe and Kayo Yokayama. They have a nice studio in Blackheath in the Blue Mountains.

 

There are more pics on my Instagram. Earlier this week, I was chatting with a few jazz vinyl collectors in Sweden who also collect glass. :)

 

Cheers,

Leigh

Oops... I forgot to mention that the folks at Cleanfeed Records are having their annual CD clearance. Many of the titles that are on sale have had numerous good reviews in this thread.

My tip: grab yourself a copy of Chris Lightcap's Big Mouth Deluxe and also Adam Lane's Full Throttle Orchestra if you don't own them already.

The below allmusic review sums this up nicely:

 

Satoko Fujii approaches jazz from the cultural perspective of an Asian. The prolific artists again release two albums together. Recorded in Japan, Past Life features her all-Japanese sextet that has worked on collective improvisation since forming in 1996. The instrumentation backing Fujii at the piano is trumpet, saxophones, trombone, bass, and drums. Their hyper-voodoo coloring of organically evolving themes is exciting and magical. Very avant-garde and unhindered by Western notions of tonality and structure, Fujii's music pushes the envelope in all directions. This is her seventh recording since 1996.Fujii continues advancing the sophistication in her alchemic mix of jazz, classical music, and traditional Japanese folk motifs. Not entirely improvised, the sextet performs intricate scores composed by Fujiiand features in performance wild musical fantasies led by Fujii's husband, trumpeter Natuski Tamura.

Also check out Satoko Fuji and Myra Melford: Under The Water.

 

Fuji performed in Melbourne a couple of days ago. Unfortunately, I could not make it :-(
