While mowing the lawn (not exactly ideal listening conditions, I know):



It'd been a while since I'd listened to this. Boy, it's good.

First listen, love it.  I definitely need to explore more Ellington... I'm still relatively new to jazz and getting my bearings, been listening off and on for 3-4 years.  Started with Bill Evans, then Miles and branched out from there....


The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils.
The motions of his spirit are dull as night,
And his affections dark as Erebus.
Let no such man be trusted.

-- William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

I am no jazz expert by a long shot but I do listen to Ellington occasionally. Such Sweet Thunder is a really good album. I think that you would like New Orleans Suite, as posted above [if you do not mind a recommendation].

despite being recorded on the same day I've somehow always found Agharta a more impressive concert set album than Pamgaea

The number of prominent female musicians at the forefront of improvised music these days is really a marvel: Lotte Anker, Mary Halvorson, Nicole Mitchell, Anna Högberg, Tomeka Reid, Myra Melford, Matana Roberts, Jaimie Branch, Alexandra Grimal ... the list goes on. Of course there have always been women in jazz, including those who were composers and instrumentalists (as opposed to being singers), but they seem to have a prominence now as a whole that they've never had before.

Anyway, two of them are present here, with Reid the nominal leader on her unlikely instrument but Halvorson given ample solo space - and it swings! Good stuff.
