In response to Reply # 0


          

The album has a general "f/Kamasi Washington" appended to every track (on Itunes, at least). Apparently he's been a steady presence on this group's records since their beginning in 2012.

The group is new to me; I'd heard of them when Washington's album came out but hadn't checked for them yet. Heavy rock/punk and jazz mashup excursion. Kamasi's playing is really at the foreground of a lot of the material, so fans should dig it.

The rock aspect is subdued at first on the album but comes out more aggressively starting on the fourth track, "Flux and Solder":

https://youtu.be/VTGDabIafMY

See, too, "Rapid Rotation," which is pretty freaking nuts:

https://youtu.be/FMC6xtcJY_Y?list=PLOMBcjbdY1A-47vL9vaHxh3P2RFm5DcHo

Honestly though, I'm liking some of the quieter/drone-ier stuff as much if not more, like the long sustained chords that form the bulk of February Drift:

https://youtu.be/xvg1zdmR1ms?list=PLOMBcjbdY1A-47vL9vaHxh3P2RFm5DcHo

Definitely worth our time and ears, and I'll be going back to check their earlier records asap for sure.

Haven't listened yet, but the line-up promises and description suggests only good things... sounds like something worth listening to as a whole, as a suite, rather than individual tracks/songs.

7. "Chris Thile and Brad Mehldau"
In response to Reply # 0
Wed Jan-25-17 09:05 AM by thebigfunk

          

Man... talk about two guys that *never* seem to take a break:

http://www.nonesuch.com/albums/chris-thile-brad-mehldau

Tracklist is interesting: a handful of originals, the rest are (mostly) contemporary tunes with wide representation: a Gillian Welch tune, Scarlet Town (kudos for that); Dylan, Don't Think Twice; some Fiona Apple, Joni Mitchell, Elliott Smith.

Only listened to Scarlet Town and Independence Day (Elliott Smith) so far --- Nonesuch only has two or three of the tracks streaming right now, so it will be a minute before I get to the whole thing. Thile is singing here (Mehldau a little, too!) --- playing is top-notch, as expected. Mehldau's playing gets deep and dirty, pulling out the blues in the tune as much as the bluegrass. They even manage to segue nicely into a double-time section that turns a usually slow, dark, meditative tune into an unlikely romp for a minute.

Was worried this might be too jammy for my tastes, but their chemistry seems solid.

Edit: this actually isn't officially released until this Friday.

In response to Reply # 8
Sun Feb-05-17 08:29 PM by Kosa12

  

          

I have seen the WCGD live (Kamasi's tour the year of the epic) so I knew this was going to be a soul album. Miles performed two songs off of this then and they sounded good enough live, but I think I might be being generous when I say this album is decent. He has a voice that suits this type of music and is a great bassist - love the moments here when his bass takes center stage, the effects he uses on it are dope, but this doesn't happen often enough in the record IMO (I mean, it's clearly one of his strengths, why not use it?). The songwriting (in reference to lyrics AND song structure) generally shifts between generic, corny and at times flat out mediocre. I guess "More Than This" is my favorite track - really like the instrumental switch up mid song on that tune, but again...the songwriting. "Fire" and "Sky High" stuck out to me as particularly bad. He is a great musician though, so I'll still check for whatever he does next I guess

11. "interesting"
In response to Reply # 10


          

I've only listened once and had similar reactions all the way through...

And yet by the end, I felt like I was on the edge of getting it and appreciating it.

Not sure that I can explain this right, but it very much felt like a studio musician's solo outing to me. Which sounds like a diss, but I don't mean it as a diss.

The songwriting (sans lyrics) very much felt like a throwback, mostly in a good way.

Dude's voice reminded me so much of a singer-songwriter named Vance Gilbert that I had to google to make sure it wasn't him...

But some pretty bad lyrics combined with the sense that most of the tunes never really hit the way they were supposed to --- left me less than satisfied. I do plan to go back for one or two more spins though... if only to figure out what it is that doesn't quite work...

I think the combination of the bad lyrics + even his singing delivery + the subject matter reminds me often of how a corny musical would sound

I know that sounds harsh...but yeah....

>I think the combination of the bad lyrics + even his singing

>musical would sound

One song - I can't remember which - the chorus almost straight lifts a riff from The Wiz's Ease on Down the Road, so there's that. I definitely hear a theater element, which isn't necessarily a turn-off for me, but just doesn't come together here...

Listened again - probably won't return to it any further. I do wonder if the material might work better live - a number of tunes sound like they're building to break loose but never really make it there. Abraham is probably the best thing on the record. I kind of like Shadow of Doubt, but I think that's because it *so* reminds me of Vance Gilbert that I can hear him going to town on it with just a guitar and his voice...

I don't mind corniness, even when it's obvious, but there is something about the general execution here that just doesn't jive well with me.

In response to Reply # 10


  

          

when I first heard Abraham, the song popped with an energy that's hard to replicate in a studio for some artists. I think Miles Mosley might fit into that box where you'll go see him play because you he's bringing the fire but the studio version might not go quite as hard.

I still like most of the songs but, as you've already mentioned, the songwriting definitely sticks out as uneven. I still think the music on the album makes the album okay....just not great.

But after seeing him perform live, I'm gonna give this a try and pay more attention to his instrumental playing. He might be the best upright bass player I've ever seen live so far. He was just ridiculous.

15. "some recent records"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Lots of stuff caught my eye in the last few weeks. A few items:

** Miguel Zenon - Tipico
He’s become an auto-listen for me, plus I’ve been leaning hard into latin american & caribbean music lately (whether direct or inspired by or having roots in), so really looking forward to giving this a serious listen. First impressions from a skim: “Academia” and the title track both boast seriously complex rhythmic structures and meters that nevertheless become infectious earworms in their own right. Should be good.

** Nicholas Payton - Afro-Caribbean Mixtape
I haven’t listened to a lot of Payton but I didn’t really expect anything like this from him based on what I do know: the two tracks I listened to are long, somewhat jammish — even almost dub-like - spacey sort of numbers, with scratched, sampled spoken vocals mixed in here and there. Liked what I heard though. Coincidentally, Payton was also an early member of the SFJazz collective, like Zenon. (Still don't forgive him for that Black Messiah review though...)

** Paolo Fresu & Uri Caine - Two Minuettos (Live in Milano)
Judging by the tracklist of jazz standards, classical interventions, and the unexpected pop tune and originals, should be a tight set. (But there’s very little Caine could ever do wrong in my eyes…) Only listened to the All I Want (yes, Joni

** Matthew Shipp Trio - Piano Song
Read somewhere this is Shipp’s retirement record or something? I don’t know his work super well but have been dipping into it more the last year or two. If anyone wants to school me on their fav Shipp works, go for it.

** Club D’Elf - Live at Club Helsinki
I never heard of these guys, but I saw the tracklist for this somewhere and got curious. Googled them and the first hit description says “Moroccan dosed psychedelic dub jazz collective” — so I’m in at least in for a listen, lol. A skim suggests it might be a bit on the jammy side. John Medeski on guitar throughout.

Others too, but we can start there...

16. "two for the road: Clap! Clap! and Myele Manzanza"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Just two quick notes:
- Clap! Clap! is an Italian producer with a new album out, A Thousand Skies --- I listened through it on a long walk the other night and def worth checking out. Definitely on the "-ish" side of a jazz-ish equation: crazy interesting mix of samples and live performance with a heavy infusion of (pan-?)African rhythm and arrangement, even instrumentation. Not sure how he got it so right, but some songs feel like a straight up live, late night jam session.

- From last year, but I'm just listening to Myele Manzana's "OnePointOne," a live album from last year. New name to me but he's in the mix of lots of names we like around here (Mochilla/Miguel Atwood-Ferguson/Marcus Strickland, think I saw Mark de Clive Lowe mentioned in connection with his name, too). His drumming is ridiculously good and engaging, but he's clearly working with some wonderful musicians on this record, too --- someone on (electric?) violin is killing it, for one thing. Something for everyone on this thing: really nice hybrid of beat-oriented and improvisational...

18. "Christian Scott - Ruler Rebel on March 31"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

First major jazz release for the year. It sucks this isn't getting more pub, because after Glasper and Kamasi, I feel like Christian Scott is that dude. But I guess he doesn't have the connections with bigger non-jazz artists like those two do.

"The Reckoning"
https://soundcloud.com/ropeadope/the_reckoning

This shit is dope. I wonder if he explores the trap music influence on the rest of the album like he does here and those couple of songs from Stretch Music.

I mainly meant in terms of coverage and popularity Glasper and Kamasi are ahead. But also Glasper was my hero for such a lomg time, it hurts to acknowledge that I'm not feeling the direction he going in right now.

In response to Reply # 24


  

          

that said Christian Scott's last album was quite good, looking forward to this new one. To be honest, since Black Radio, which I thought was good, Glasper's output hasn't been that good. I haven't even heard his latest record in full because I couldn't get through it. Double Booked is still his best album IMO

20. "Cameron graves - planetary prince"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Pianist from Kamasi's album - the cover art is horrible but the music is lovely (at least based on one listen). A lot in tune with The Epic but more piano-forward, even more acoustic-ish (no rhodes!). Less explicitly soul-jazzy but still a lot going on: great players, strong melodies, and lots of space for improvisation from all involved.

Iyer is also one of my favorites right now, Break Stuff was a great trio record and his duet album was Wadada Leo Smith was incredible music, great use of space and tension on that record. Some of my other favorites right now are Mary Halvorson (Away With You), Cecile McLorin Salvant/Aaron Deihl (For One To Love) and Kamasi (The Epic). There have been some great records dropping recently.

Halvorson is a guitarist who hangs around with people who play in the "avant-garde" (for a lack of a better word) scene in NYC. Her style is pretty off-kilter and unique - it's definitely not for everybody - often uses this cool delay pedal that gives her notes a "dropping" kind of sensation. She has been adding to her band for years and her latest and best album is called "Away With You", her band on it is an Octet and has a great pedal steel player on it (Susan Alcorn). Other great albums by her are "Dragon's Head" (debut trio album) and "Meltframe", which is a great solo guitar album.

https://youtu.be/yDaJ5WKH0tk

Cecile McLorin Salvant is a fantastic vocalist and the Aaron Diehl Trio has been her band on her past two albums. For One To Love is her most recent and best - it features a good amount of self written tunes like "Left Over", "Look At Me" and "Monday" that are some of her best songs IMO. Aaron Diehl is a great pianist and has released two quality albums with his trio as well that are pretty much just as good as each other, "The Bespoke Man's Narrative" (which has a great version of "Moonlight In Vermont") and "Space Time Continuum". I saw them live earlier this year - they were fantastic.

They've been touring a lot. They've come around Detroit at least 3 times in the past year (though, granted, they both record for local label Mack Avenue Records), so def worth checking them live if you can.

62. "this one took a while to hit me"
In response to Reply # 40


          

But I think that's because I wasn't listening as an album, just checking in here and there... but after spending time with it while working outside last week, I've kept it on steady repeat. The first half especially is really well executed (I especially like Time Will Tell - beautiful melody and development - could listen to that alone over and over and not get bored - reminds me of the clean, evocative harmonies on some of Abdullah Ibrahim's compositions).

49. "Ronald Bruner Jr - Triumph"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Some first listen reactions:

Thundercat's brother. This, like Miles Mosley's record (though this is better), is disappointing coming from a member of the west coast get down. I'm not saying they all have to set out to make spiritual jazz The Epic tracks, but the R&B stuff, which dominates the majority of the LP is kind of just middle of the road. He doesn't have that good of a voice either and the lyrics aren't good, though there are some nice grooves there. That said, the longer instrumental tracks, "Geome Denome", "Chicks Web" and "Open The Gate" where the band really goes in, are fantasitc.

63. "Webstream: Muldrow Meets Mingus by Jason Moran (laink + swipe)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Live stream from NPR's Jazz Night in America series. Shit is dope.

http://www.npr.org/event/music/521222975/muldrow-meets-mingus

"But Muldrow, like Mingus, hails from Los Angeles — and that's far from the most salient commonality between them. She grew up with his music courtesy of her father, Ronald, a working jazz musician. And she gravitated to Mingus' example as a creative maverick, a political activist and an outspoken advocate for black America — someone who, in her words, "expressed the truth."

Jason Moran, the acclaimed pianist and composer, recognized the potential here. As the Artistic Director for Jazz at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., he commissioned a concert program called "Muldrow Meets Mingus." It took place earlier this year at the Kennedy Center's Crossroads Club, and Jazz Night in America was there for the rehearsals as well as the world premiere, which featured audacious musicians like alto saxophonist Darius Jones, trombonist Ku-umba Frank Lacy and drummer Karriem Riggins."

64. "jaimie branch - fly or die"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Have a couple to swing back through and add here, but near the top of the list is Jaimie Branch's "Fly or Die" ...

Branch is a stalwart trumpet player of the Chicago scene (in the same networks as folks like Matana Roberts and Tomeka Reid).

The album is a solid mix of styles, some "out there" stuff, some more accessible groove-oriented stuff, all of it engaging. Good line-up too: Tomeka Reid on cello, Jason Ajemian on bass, Chad Taylor on drums. It's a short record at 35 minutes (something I appreciate). Definitely worth a listen.

73. "new Ambrose Akinmusire!"
In response to Reply # 0


          

My listening has been really wonky lately due to some random stuff I'm dealing with, but was thrilled to take some time to catch up on new releases this morning and find a new album from Ambrose Akinmusire --- a live one at that. It's called "A Rift in Decorum: Live at the Village Vanguard"

About to put it on now...

A few others I haven't checked out yet but are on my list:

- DeJohnette has a new project with Larry Grenadier and Medeski and Scofield called "Hudson" --- really interesting trackiist on this one with a number of tunes drawn from 60s/70s rock-ish (Dylan, Hendrix, Joni, The Band).

- There's a crazy looking project called "The Passion of Charlie Parker" that looks a tribute with a stunning recurring ensemble of Craig Taborn, Donnie McCaslin, Ben Monder, Scott Colley, and Eric Harland. Guests (vocalists) include Gregory Porter, Madeleine Peyroux, Kurt Elling, Melody Gardot, and others. So yeah, this could be legit.

- Collab album from Avi Avital and Omer Avital (unsurprisingly called "Avital meets Avital") is out on Deutsche Grammophone --- I like Omer Avital a lot, so this will definitely be on the playlist...

But yeah, new Ambrose Akinmusire!!!

74. "tyshawn sorey - verisimilitude"
In response to Reply # 0


          

New album from Tyshawn Sorey w/his trio called "Verisimilitude" out today (I think). And as I'm listening earlier, I run across this article from NYT:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/02/arts/music/tyshawn-sorey-verisimilitude-interview.html

I've only just started listening to his work over the past few months - I'd been digging his 2016 record, "The Inner Spectrum of Variables," and knew of him through some other acts (Iyer, Lehmann), but knew very little about him. He definitely sits in that sweet spot of composition informed by the best of 20th c. art music and avant garde ish ---- the NYT article mentions Morton Feldman, who I literally thought of while on the tune "obsidian" today...

Anyhow, really enjoyed my first listen and makes me want to dig into Sorey even further.

There's this digital album available which I've yet to purchase yet: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001N3NBRM/ref=dm_ws_sp_ps_dp

He also played drums throughout Takuya Kuroda's 'Rising Son' album and on the album Kuroda produced for a Japanese soul singer NIA which
features Kris Bowers on keys as well and is excellent too.

This record is incredible. The majority of it was recorded live at the Village Vanguard. Cecile is one of the best jazz vocalists around today and this is her best album to date and one of the best albums of the year IMO. Anyone who enjoys people like Sarah Vaughn, Ella, Bessie Smith etc NEED to check this out.

81. "Keyon Harrold The Mugician & Christian Scott 3rd in Trilogy"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Keyon Harrold - The Mugician

The highs are dope af. Some big band orchestral jazz, jazz-funk, and definitely very hip-hop influenced. I'm not feeling everything on here though. I think I started following him some after Blacksummers'night. You can check his credits here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyon_Harrold

Also some info in Billboard: http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop/7964552/keyon-harrold-new-song-the-mugician-album


Christian Scott - The Emancipation Procrastination (out 10/20 on Rope-a-Dope https://christianscott.bandcamp.com/)

I already pre-ordered. This is the 3rd album released this year as part of the Centennial (of jazz) Trilogy. The first one, Ruler Rebel, might be my album of the year in any genre, even though it felt a bit more like an EP.

85. "E.A.B.S. ('Puzzle Mixtape' and 'Repetitions')"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I hope you guys give this a chance - EABS are a jazz band from Poland. Heavily hip-hop inspired they have a 2016 mixtape (available for free on their Bandcamp page: https://eabs.bandcamp.com/album/puzzle-mixtape) and a new album called 'Repetitions' for 2017.

The mixtape features a collection of their live performances with MED, Jeru and Coultrain, features a cover of 'Find A Way' and has a nice interpoletion of Dilla's 'Reminisce' beat as well.

Free download here: https://eabs.bandcamp.com/album/puzzle-mixtape

Imagine Lalah Hathaway as a Cuban millenial. She hit the states and did Tiny Desk in 2016, but she is still touring here now. Amazing voice and stage presence.

90. "Mary Halvorson Quartet: Paimon - Book of Angels Volume 32"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

This is great, some extremely interesting interplay between Halvorson and Okazaki, the other guitarist on this record. Her unconventional style gives a really interesting contrast to his cleaner way of playing guitar. Also interesting to hear her playing John Zorn's Klezmer influenced compositions.

I love this record. This stuff gets extremely out there and heavy. Anyone who is into Avant Garde-ish stuff definitely should not miss this one.

Christian Scott is 3 for 3 this year.

I haven't heard all three releases together as one unit together but this one may be my second favorite of the trilogy as of right now (Ruler Rebel is still my favorite jazz album this year).

Copped this off the strength of Beat Tape 2, which is essentially his ode to Dilla on the guitar. Looking forward to hear how he progresses.

New from Agogo Records. Really good release with maybe a few too many covers for my liking but they do cover 'Tom's Diner' which is a bold choice and nicely done. Another one worth your time:

102. "Chris Dave and the Drumhedz - Glow (LP out Jan 26)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I soon as I saw Chris Dave's facebook update, I came here to post about this but looks like someone beat me to it.

http://board.okayplayer.com/okp.php?az=show_topic&forum=5&topic_id=2998801&mesg_id=2998801&page=

I been waiting a long fucking time for this. But here's the Blue Note annoucement:

http://www.bluenote.com/news/chris-dave-and-the-drumhedz-blue-note-debut

CHRIS DAVE AND THE DRUMHEDZ ANNOUNCE BLUE NOTE DEBUT OUT JAN. 26

December 8, 2017

Chris Dave and the Drumhedz announce the release of their debut self-titled album, out January 26 via Blue Note Records. Led by drummer, composer, and bandleader Chris Dave, the album features Anderson .Paak, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Bilal, SiR, Anna Wise, and dozens more. The album pre-order launches with the first single “Destiny n Stereo (feat. Elzhi, Phonte Coleman & Eric Roberson),” which is now available to download or stream. NPR Music recently praised the track's “head-nod beat reminiscent of Dave's rhythm lodestar, the revered producer J Dilla.”

Chris Dave has drummed for everyone from Adele to Bieber and Dolly to D’Angelo; Questlove once described Chris as his “worst nightmare” and Rolling Stone named him one of the100 Greatest Drummers of All Time. The Drumhedz’ debut LP showcases a family of musicians whose credits coil like ivy around nearly every pillar of modern sound. It's a place without genre, where elements of funk, soul, gospel, hip-hop and jazz mix until they're an indistinguishable surging mass of solid groove.

It's the album the Drumhedz founder has been building toward his entire life. Chris first reached for the sticks at 3, hoping to hit skins for his brothers' funk group. He was denied, but found his second chance at church, initially on percussion. By the time Chris hit middle school, he was drumming for Houston choirs backing singers like Kim Burrell and Yolanda Adams. He attended the revered High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, then received a full ride to Howard University, but dropped out to join Mint Condition. After that the work started pouring in, playing sessions with Lionel Richie, Mary J., and Kenny Garrett. In studios, on tour and in private, he was perfecting his style.

Chris' need to absorb all he heard paid off – from 2009 to 2012, he worked on three Grammy-winning albums across three genres: Maxwell's BLACKsummer'snight, Adele's 21, and the Robert Glasper Experiment's Black Radio. In the personnel credits for those LPs, you'll find the foundation of the Drumhedz.

There are nearly 50 Drumhedz on this record, spanning core crew like Pino Palladino (bass), Isaiah Sharkey (guitar), Cleo "Pookie" Sample (keys), Sir Darryl Farris (vocals) and Keyon Harrold (horn), to old familiars like James Poyser (the Roots), Stokley Williams (Mint Condition) and Shafiq Husayn (Sa-Ra), to fresh guests like Anderson .Paak, Bilal, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Phonte Coleman.

With all their otherworldly ability, the Drumhedz are who they are because of connection. At the end of the day, they're the cats who came together. And because they did, you might be a Drumhed too.

The track listing for Chris Dave and the Drumhedz is as follows:

1. Rocks Crying
2. Universal Language
3. Dat Feelin
4. Black Hole
5. 2n1
6. Spread Her Wings
7. Whatever
8. Sensitive Granite
9. Cosmic Intercourse
10. Atlanta, Texas
11. Destiny n Stereo
12. Clear View
13. Job Well Done
14. Lady Jane
15. Trippy Tipsy

109. "Thanks for this list fam"
In response to Reply # 104


  

          

I also second the Nubya Garcia album. I was getting ready to write why Yussef Kamaal wasn't on the list, who I discovered here on OKP (from the 2016 jazz post iirc). But then realized a Yussef Hayes is on the list and then read this:

"The demise of Yussef Kamaal robbed British music of one its most profound voices, with the group’s debut – and, we suppose, only – record becoming an instant classic in this vortex of fresh jazz innovation."

What the fuck?

I had tickets to see them in London last year, and the night before they broke up!

The gig ended up being Henry Wu with a different drummer, but I got a refund for the tickets just because it wouldn't have been the same.

105. "Jazz supergroup R+R=Now: Glasper, T-Mart, C. Scott, Taylor McFerrin..."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I'm conflicted about this, because I've stanned Glasper for so long, but since the Covered album, I'm just not feeling him as a bandleader anymore. If Glasper wasn't heading this new group up, I'd be a lot more stoked for this. Lately he's been at his best as a sideman for other groups. (Y'all heard that Blue Note All-Stars album? Shit is dope.) Either way, this lineup is crazy, especially with McFerrin added (peep this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSw7TXt3DZE).


https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/hip-hop/8070773/rr-now-robert-glasper-new-band

The new band consists of Robert Glasper, Terrace Martin, Christian Scott, bassist Derrick Hodge, drummer Justin Tyson and multi-instrumentalist Taylor McFerrin.

"According to Glasper, R+R NOW tells "our story from our point of view. Everybody's sound is so different, but we all come from the same concrete garden. Its a very honest, fluid sound that rings of hip-hop, EDM, jazz, at times -- hell -- reggae ... a bunch of cats that respect each other so much that we always pass the ball."

Some of RG Experiment's songs have electronic influence, though more in the Radiohead-IDM-fusion kind of way (Festival, that A Love Supreme cover, and even the Smells Like Teen Spirit cover comes to mind). But if you heard that ArtScience LP, *shutters* you know they could go full corny, Random Access Memories-like, dated, disco-pop (I think they had that Daft Punk record in mind when the Experiment made that record). So, just gotta wait and see really.

and I really like Glasper. So I'm a bit skeptical of this, but they are talented as hell obviously, also I was waiting for McFerrin's follow up to his fantastic debut LP...

And then, when I think of the fact that he's 87...holy cow

I'm just in awe.

And I share his adoration for the city of Marseille. This is a perfect homage.

I happened to stumble across her over the weekend. I listened to her release from 2017 over the weekend. This is definitely a beautiful record. Completely missed by everyone here.

Bahraini-British musician definitely uses the influences of here native homeland coupled with the British jazz scene

La Saboteuse (2017)
