As the lp notes describe, "One gets the sensation at times of weightlessness painted ingeniously through sound, suspended as it were in the upper regions of space." I liken it more to Juan Esquivel remixing a Jackie Gleason album.

Chet Baker, Peace

A woman voice glides like the wind
Of black, of damp, of night
And all it touches in this flight
Suddenly is over.

Simon, hope you enjoy those Ibrahim discs as much as I do! (Wait, half as much would already be more than cool ;D )

Have been revisiting the entire catalogue of the great, Michigan-based organ group Organissimo, as well as their organist Jim Alfredson's tribute to Big John Patton - the "B3tles" is just out and pretty darn good (and that's coming from someone usually not fond of jazzers doing Beatles covers):



The debut "This Is the Place" is from 2003, on a few cuts Ran Blake guests on tenor. The second album, "This Is the Place" (2005), again presents original line-up with Alfredson (org, keys), Joe Gloss (g) and Randy Marsh (d), with guest appearances by Johnny Gist (ts) and Bill Vits (perc), while the third, "Groovadelphia" (2008), has just the core trio.



The group's fourth album was a live one, "Alive & Kickin'" (2009), presenting great versions of tunes from the first three albums, including a monster 18 minute re-take of "Pumpkin Pie" from the debut album. "Dedicated" (2013) has Ralph Tope on guitar and again a few cuts with Bill Vits on percussion.



The brand new"B3tles" (2017) presents Lawrence Barris on guitar and guest spots by Vits and on one track Mike List on tabla. In the same year "Dedicated" was released, Alfredson also produced his mighty good "Tribute to Big John Patton", with Tope on guitar, Randy Gelispie on drums and Jim Cooper (vibes - on three tracks), Dwight Adams (trumpet) and Mark Kieme (tenor) (both together on three other tracks). For backers (including yours truly), a full bonus album with more music from the sessions was made available.

Enjoying them very much, thanks! Plus I'd been wanting for a long time to get a clearer sense of his discography, being previously familiar with only a few random discs, so its great to be getting a little closer to that.

now:



Mark Turner - Yam Yam (1995)
Dexter Gordon - Manhattan Symphonie (1978)

Cool!

I followed Turner and his generation some when I started discovering jazz in my early teens in the early nineties, but I don't know that disc (remember its title though, as it was on one of my messy, purely memory-based wantlists back then) ... still have a few Joshua Redman discs (and Turner's "Ballads", and some Kurt Rosenwinkel), but this ultimately didn't prove to be my thing quite ... Brad Mehldau I still enjoy though, his recent 4-CD-Box is wonderful indeed! The Dexter is wonderful though, no question about that!

Playing music by Buck Hill (1927-2017), a great player that didn't really get to be known all that much ... he made guest appearances on a few albums of fellow D.C. artists Shirley Horn and had a run of his own albums on Steeplechase and Muse and elsewhere fairly late in his long life. These two were cut at North Sea Jazz 1981 with Reuben Brown (p), Wilbur Little (b) and Billy Hart (d):
