John Scofield updates his early-90s quartet with drummer Bill Stewart and saxophonist Joe Lovano by recruiting bassist Larry Grenadier for his appropriately titled Impulse! Records debut, Past Present.



Enjoyable.

Find out that this recording is from 1975. By a trumpetist called Marvin "Hannibal" Peterson. It's very good however.

Something special. Samples sound great.

"On the Winter Solstice of 2014 - the Northern Hemisphere's longest night of the year - composer, bandleader & percussionist Adam Rudolph convened 11 of New York City's finest and most adventurous guitarists in a New Jersey studio for a most auspicious event: the debut of Go: Organic Guitar Orchestra, his all-guitar orchestra. In attendance were guitarists Rez Abbasi, Nels Cline, Liberty Ellman, David Gilmore, Miles Okazaki, and Marvin Sewell, all on electric guitars and effects; Damon Banks on bass guitar; Marco Capelli on acoustic guitar, effects; Jerome Harris on electric guitar, electric bass guitar, and lap steel guitar; Joel Harrison on electric guitar and national steel guitar; and Kenny Wessel on electric guitar and banjo. With Rudolph at the helm, conducting musical charts and creative improvisational energy, the orchestra began to play. The result is this extraordinary release, Turning Towards the Light."

Samples sound great. Not simply playing compositions by Debussy and Ravel in a jazz vein. With strings, special stuff.

To be released November 20, 2015.

Amazon Description:

Weather Report's The Legendary Live Tapes features four discs of sensational unreleased performances all "completely, totally, unapologetically and insanely live" recorded by the legendary jazz group from 1978 to 1981.

Formed by onetime Miles Davis sidemen Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter in 1970, Weather Report defied categorization in the 15 years they recorded together. Inspired by their "electric" collaborations with Davis, Zawinul and Shorter would lead Weather Report into unpredictable territory, from free-jazz to structured but sprawling multicultural jazz-rock. Though Zawinul would reject the "fusion" genre the band are so often associated with "We don't fuse nuthin', we just play from the heart," he once said their music would serve as a landmark for jazz revolution and evolution in the 1970s and 1980s.

The dramatic addition of electric bass virtuoso Jaco Pastorius to the lineup in 1976 led to an even more energetic and daring Weather Report, who would even score a crossover hit in 1977 with "Birdland." A year later, drummer Peter Erskine joined the fold, creating one of the band's most notable lineups; that lineup would expand to a quintet with the addition of percussionist Bobby Thomas, Jr. in 1980.

These two lineups, responsible for some of Weather Report's most important moments, are chronicled in this four-disc set, sourced from never-before-heard soundboard tapes recorded by longtime live mixing engineer Brian Risner. Produced by Erskine and executive produced by Joe Zawinul's son Anthony, this package uniquely showcases Weather Report's extensive prowess as a band, opting not to replicate the ebb and flow of a standard Weather Report set at the time, instead offering a uniquely curated experience that captures the dazzling directions the group took at the arguable height of their powers.
"Music can inspire love, religious ecstasy, cathartic release, social bonding, and a glimpse of another dimension. A sense that there is another time, another space and another, better universe."

Marnix Busstra : Firm Fragile Fun

Quote
Each song on Firm Fragile Fun gets its name from a single word assigned to it by some of Busstra's non-musician friends, instantaneously bringing to light the perceived heart of the matter(s).

While some may say that the method of creation behind these song titles is merely a gimmick, those same people would be missing the point: if music is a tool of expression and communication, why shouldn't those on the receiving end be given a say in explaining the feel(ing) of a song? The title of a song does absolutely nothing to change the music itself, but the naming method behind these songs says a lot about Busstra's willingness to let his music speak to listeners on their own terms, rather than what's dictated to them. And in many cases, Busstra's buddies do a fine job of summing up the central tenets of his music. "Joy," for example, is a perfect encapsulation of a four-minute number in three letters. Consonance wins out as Busstra strums in sunny fashion and pianist Rembrandt Frerichs delivers uplifting chording with hints of spirited South African Goema. Whoever was charged with naming that one hit the nail on the head.  (All About Jazz)

Recalls John Scofield in his sound but the music is looser.  Fine recording.

Ayler records was a Swedish label mostly documenting the older generations of free players (they've got a terrific box dedicated to Jimmy Lyons, releases by Mongezi Feza, Peter Brötzmann, Jemeel Mondoc, Noah Howard, Fred Anderson, Arthur Rhames etc.) as well as Scandinavian players following their mould (the Feza disc has him paired with Bernt Rosengren's wild band, my personal favourite is the Anders Gahnhold two-disc set with the south-african rhythm section of Johnny Dyani and Gilbert Matthews) ... a few years ago, the label was taken over by Stéphan Berland, a great guy from France, who took over what remained of the back catalogue (several older items are alas OOP, I missed out on a few myself, including the Howard) and started shifting gears, adding somewhat younger French musicians to the fold: Marc Ducret, Joëlle Léandre, Alexandra Grimal (both her Ayler releases are great) but also continuing on the free jazz theme (Dennis Gonzalez, the Stone Quartet with the late Roy Cambpell, Flow Trio).

Now this new release could or should (or maybe not, who knows) be of interest, as this is mostly a classical forum - on first listen, I found it quite intriguing indeed:

Excellent, thanks for reporting this one Joe - have my eye on it now! :)
