""Modern" Jazz Recomendations"


  

          

I tried this topic on another music board and it went pretty well, so I'm bringing it here....

Lately I've gotten really into a relatively young jazz pianist, Gerald Clayton (who has released 3 fantastic albums....I recently made a topic about him here, of course it went wood but anyway...) and reading stuff about him has led me to some other young jazz artists such as Aaron Diehl or Ambrose Akinmusire, which leads me to the point of me making this thread....

Pretty much I'm just looking for recommendations of jazz albums that have recently come out (lets say mid 2000s and higher) and are by "young" (which I guess in this case would be 80s babies and up) jazz artists. It can be any kind of jazz: straight-ahead, free, fusion, vocal, I'm up for anything to be honest. Just trying to expand my knowledge of jazz that has recently came out. Thanks in advance.

edit: I forgot to include that albums that feature mostly original compositions are preferred. Though obviously if its someone reinterpreting a standard and its great, I'll check it out too.

For Example:

Listened to what looks like his most recent album on Rdio - South African History !X - enjoyed it a lot. Talented player, and I like his mix of what I associate with that Capetown Jazz sound with other styles...

Will definitely return to this one and keep an eye out for others...

In response to Reply # 0

'The Spirit Music Jamia: Dance of the Infidel' was Meshells jazz focused album that came out in 2005 and it's one helluva record. like Meshell herself, its got a very wide range of expressions on it yet it feels extremely cohesive and 'of one spirit'. i strongly suggest you give this one several spins and let it sink in. there are some big broad bold musical strokes taken here and some very subtle musical details that all intertwine and play with each other and ultimately make for what i think is a super exciting, refreshing musical ride. It's both beautiful and moving and can float you light & high flying one second, and it can ALSO be very 'gutteral' and visceral and thrust you over the top and wooshing down the steepest hill, your heart thumping in your chest all the way down. its good stuff...
but i'm a fan, so....


i'm curious to hear what YOU think about though, so after you listen a handful of times and digest it , maybe post back with your thoughts (be they pro or con) on this record.

bought it a year or so ago, its a great album , I haven't listened to it in like a month, but I agree with you on pretty much everything....I'd have to listen to it again to give you anything REALLY in depth as I don't know the album THAT well lol. In particular I do love the third track though

Cool, my kind of post...

'The Dreamer' by Jose James, released in 2008.
He's now with Blue Note but his first 2 albums were released via Brownswood - he's gone on to do amazing things and release a further 4 albums since but it's his debut that I always cite as his masterpiece. Most people know 'Parkbench People' but if you haven't heard it, here's 'Winter Wind':
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=duPOs6WuRps

'Rising Sun' by Takuya Kuroda
This one's from this year, released by Blue Note. Kuroda's an amazing trumpeter live (especially as a part of Jose James's current band) and although it's a lovely listen, I think it could have featured a bit more energy throughout. Still very good though:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mUymaxWmMw

Anything by Nicola Conte
And I mean "Anything you can get your hands on" - he's an Italian producer and guitarist who's been releasing albums since around 2000. It's kinda acid jazz with buckets of bossa nova thrown in. I think his best album is 'Love and Revolution' from 2011, but his jazziest would be 'Other Directions', again, which is excellent:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bP0X9ACylHU

'Heroes + Misfits' by pianist Kris Bowers
His album came out a few months ago on Concord. He plays with Jose James current band and is also all over the aforementioned 'Rising Sun' album. Some people felt this album was a bit "boring" but I really disagree and it's one of my favourites from this year. He's 24 years old and won the Thelonius Monk Piano Competition a few years ago so he has all the credentials. Casey Benjamin plays sax on the album too, Jose James guests but here's my standout song from lot:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUqsGx_L5mQ

'Circles' by Soil & "Pimp" Sessions (2013)
The band is fairly well-known but this album that came out last year begs peoples' attention - it's amazing!

'Offering for Anxious' by Diggs Duke (2013)
Diggs Duke is crazy talented - check out his Bandcamp page as he gives away lots of free downloads (definitely check for his Kimbra remix and his Herbie Hancock downloads there too). His album came out last year and as good as it is - my only complaint is it's crazy short - 10 songs at 25 minutes.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtE-IwkD4c8

'Hot Corner' by The Five Corners Quintet (2008)
Jazz from Helsinki, this is actually one of my favourite albums ever - completely reinvents old perspectives on jazz music and presents it for a new generation as still being completely innovative. It really is a great album.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YH1FwTPbeuk

......... Sorry, didn't expect my reply to be that long. Hopefully something of the above serves as some use though?

I actually recently saw the first three artists you listed there live at the newport jazz festival, they all gave a great show. I've already heard allot of Robert Glasper and one album from Porter.

Cecile McLorin Salvant & the Aaron Diehl Trio.

They rocked Chicago Jazz Fest Sunday night. She's an absolutely amazing vocalist, & the trio backing her up was killing it too.
This is the title track from her record last year:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RsjZFG76Qk

Hiromi (Uehara) has a super energetic playing style that I love, there's so much movement in it. Here's one from her trio project from earlier this year:

I saw them live a few times and it was awesome; didn't like the records as much but it's still good shit. Shame the way he died and that he died period because sweden lost one of our top contemporary jazz voices.

Just found this 50 minute high-quality set that Ambrose Akinmusire did (for youtube?), solid sound, and looks like a real solid set with 3 tunes from the latest lp, the rest from his first two I think

Watching now but it's great so far

Ambrose Akinmusire album on the first listen, which is odd considering that I really loved the first album I heard by him (which is his second) and love his playing on Gerald Clayton's "Life Forum", this album is in a completely different style so maybe it will grow on me. I like some parts of various tracks (the last gets pretty cool near the middle), yet to be honest there wasn't one song I dug on there entirely besides the last one, though I have to say, "rollcall for Those Absent" was chilling, mainly because of all the things that are happening in america and the fact that its a childs voice reading out the names of black men that have been killed by police, really left an impression on me....but yeah besides that kinda disappointed, but it is only the first time I've heard it lol

41. "give this one time"
In response to Reply # 40


          

Of the three, it's almost certainly my favorite, but you're right: it's very different from both of the earlier albums.

I think at some point, it's one of those albums that has to be a devoted listen... put everything else away and just let yourself sink into it, from start to finish. He is doing a lot with quiet, with silence, and with a persistent slowness --- and that sort of wizardry asks for a great deal of attention. It's become a Saturday/Sunday morning album for me, the album I put on during those rare moments where I can just listen.

For me, the whole thing has come together like an extended suite; I have favorite tracks, for sure, but it's the album as a whole that gets me. And he has a way of playing with time, with the sensation of time --- of sort of extending it, bending it, making it float. See Our Basement, Bubbles, Beauty..., Asiam, and Ceaseless... ; part of it his knack for making time signatures disappear without the music feeling anarchic, but part of it, too, is the sort of poise he's working with: he just has a wonderful sense of musical balance.

43. "Thats a great explanation"
In response to Reply # 41


  

          

as always from you. I'll give it some relistens in a few days, it could just not be for me (I'd be suprised if I ended up liking the vocalists), but I really want to give this one a chance because I'm a really big fan based on his second album. Wouldn't be the first time something has grown on me.

In other news I've been getting into this pianist allot, Danny Grissett, he has released 3, really good, traditional piano trio albums with some great interpretations on standards and some wonderful original compositions, he has played with Tom Harrell allot, if you have heard any of his stuff. All of his albums are on spotify.

You ever check out Gerald Clayton?

47. "re: gerald clayton"
In response to Reply # 43


          

Yeah, I've started dipping into Clayton's stuff - I like it a lot. I liked some of the Bond album, but I think Life Forum is more in my zone (or at least closer to stuff I'm enjoying right now). He's got a great ear for arrangements on that album, esp. with the added vocals and the horn charts. Really nice.

My only complaint - and this is a very general complaint - is that like a lot of contemporary jazz folks, his stuff seems to have this sort of soft, smooth, almost blurry sound at times. This seems esp. true of pianists right now: heavy on the sustain pedal. After a while it can feel a bit monotonous...

But that's minor. I'll definitely be playing his stuff for a while...

Thanks for the feedback man, always enjoy hearing your opinion. I actually don't know which one I like more between Bond and Life Forum (both 9/10 albums for me tbh), they are completely different beasts, one in the classic trio setting and the other in that huge ensamble type deal. It really depends on how I'm feeling, lately though I've been straight up obsessed with Life Forum, I agree with you, the vocalists add a really nice touch (especially when they are lyricless and following the instruments) and Clayton is a very talented composer. Really excited to see where he goes next from here
