I realized I hadn't really paid tribute to the great man in his passing:

 

More tomorrow, probably.

Staircase may be my favorite of the solo piano Jarretts.

Speaking of Jarrett, I played No End for the first time yesterday, an album where he's overdubbed himself playimg all instruments, most prominently the guitar. I'm afraid I found it dull and meandering (even by his standards of meandering).

Also:



Jimmy McGriff and Groove Holmes - Giants Of The Organ in Concert (1972)
Dave Brubeck - Jazz Impressions Of Japan (1964)

Yeah, it's one of my faves too (not that I've heard all of them). "Hourglass, Part 2" is surely one of the most beautiful things he's ever done.

Re: No End, I took a look at it and decided I wasn't interested. Thanks for confirming my intuition. :)

A great one, that.

Love those Granz jam sessions! That one blues ("Funky Blues" it is, I think) with Bird tearing it up in a classic blues solo - timeless stuff!

Also confess to be a big fan of JATP and really sorry that the marvellous 1944-49 was never followed up by more volumes ... there is, I think, still plenty of material that has not been on CD or isn't wide-spread (they could skip the really well-known "At the Opera House" album series, I guess ... but there's so much more material around that has surfaced here and there and on European PD releases/boots, too ... too bad this never happened).



Myself, still deeply into CT ... yesterday and today been playing - repeatedly - the 1966 recordings, that is, the two on Blue Note and the "Student Studies" (aka "Great Paris Concert" - the version depicted above, on Fuel 2000, rel. 2003, is the one I have) material, including the unreleased bonus (click, go one post back for a 1969 concerto recording). I've not found the Stuttgart 1966 material but haven't really hunted yet either, my CD-Rs of live music are in a total mess, alas.

This, to me, is amongst the pinnacle of all music. Truly outstanding stuff!

Another solid live effort from '67.

Some Cecil for me too:



This one's a large ensemble affair, with Thurman Barker, Steve McCall, Peter Brötzmann, and others.

Not quite finished paying my respects to Cecil, but today was:


Wadada Leo Smith, Lake Biwa

That was the only jazz today, I'm afraid. The rest was classical (continuing the Skrowaczewski box) and whatever Los Super Seven is. :)
