Me too ... but not enough time for regular postings these days, alas.

Some recent spins include these - catching up with some more 2017 releases:






(The one with the many b/w pics is "Duopoly" by Kris Davis")

Also finally got me this beauty:



And right now, first spin:

Those two followed later, after the Borderlands Trio - and they're different animals, all three, albeit all in Standard piano trio format. Crump has two terrific and very much awake cohorts in Kris Davis and Eric McPherson - the disc captures them live and it's exciting, surprising, taking many unexpected turns. Excellent in my book!

The Aaron Parks Album is more of a post-impressionist, Bill Evans-influenced album - subdued and yes, sometimes I found it pretty boring, alas. Was hoping Ben Street (I'm not sure I ever liked him as much as here, but maybe I just paid more attention than usual because the piano didn't capture me much?) and most of all Billy Hart would make a difference, but from my first impression, it's just a so-so Album, alas.

The Django Bates one is somewhat better - just in case: all of these were first spins and these are rough, first impressions. It covers a more varied ground - as is to be expected with Bates (who is very fine on the wonderful new album by Anouar Brahem - now that's easily THE current ECM rec!). Some of it though sounded unsurprising and pretty predictable again in that yurpeen frickle-dickle-pretended-energy-playing manner (the kind of "avantgarde" that ECM can really still take and actually has turned arričre-garde a while ago, but when done right can still work occasionally, I guess ... i.e. I never got what the fuss was about EST, although one should not speak badly about the dead).

Ambrose Akinmusire--A Rift in Decorum: Very interesting stuff here. This ensemble sounds like Christian Scott meets Tyshawn Sorey. My favorite track is Moment in between the rest

I've also been listening to some Anouar Brahem; and not long ago I listened to several of the Duke duo sessions, including that Ella album.
