GOD.... I LOVE JAZZ

Recommended Posts

Marshall Allen is still gigging and touring the world, leading the Sun Ra Arkestra.

He's 95 years old.

I missed last years gigs, but hope to get to Subterania in that London on 9th May.

Perhaps if Marshall Allen, Sonny Sharrock and Peter Brotzmann had played for the Modern (!) Jazz Quartet (after they'd changed their name, obvs) they would have been a good deal more interesting!

That was very cool indeed. I shall buy the track and use it as the background for a contemplative video using words for a hymn that is sung on it. I am not sure if my Church is ready for it, but we shall find out.

I have been listening to this Al Dimeola for 40 years and he still has the power to astonish. This is 31 years ago, Live at Montreux. His right hand is just unbelievable. I play an Ovation and read though some of his charts regularly. He is an absolute monster.

Our own Kevin Glasgow doing what he does best..... REALLY pissing me off

Seriously, though. In trio with Nelson Veras and Asaf Sirkis. Stunning. 😎

Struggling with this one. I think she is a great player, but the accompaniment is not working for me.

Yes...

I think the arrangement is great. Must of been a hell of a job getting all that together to sound so tight.

I'm not that keen on the Drummer but, I like the Bassist though, a nice fluent solo.

Afraid I didn't get that far. Glad you're not keen on the drummer as I think you know I don't go around slagging things off. Just didn't get what they were trying to do.

Guitarist and bassist have certainly got great chops but somehow it doesn’t go together as a good performance. Bass is quite intrusive behind the guitar.
