Quote from: Henk on June 05, 2009, 03:16:35 AMI repeat my message (originally posted in the "Non-classical music listening thread"):I see nobody here listening to contemporary (jazz) music where I like to listen to. People here seem to think that only Miles Davis, John Coltrane and some other well-known jazz-musicians count in the jazz world. But nowadays these contemporary groups, musicians are at the same level of artistry then the well-known older names and have taken jazz to other directions: AlasNoAxis, Paul Motian, Wayne Horvitz, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Dave Douglas, David Murray, Ahmad Jamal, Roy Hargrove, vocalists Rebecca Martin, Jennifer Sanon, Rosa Passos and Sachal Vasandani and european impro of Fuhler, Kaufmann, De Joode, Mengelberg, Baars.Check them out! I would like to post a list with recommended albums for those who feel challenged.

Quote from: bhodges on June 05, 2009, 06:50:51 AMI have a lot of ECM releases from the last 20 years or so, including Keith Jarrett, Jan Garbarek, Ralph Towner and Lyle Mays (just off the top of my head). Garbarek has been a fave for a long time.And a lot of my contemporary jazz is by Louisiana-based artists (many writing in a more retro style), e.g. Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys, Dwayne Dopsie & the Zydeco Hellraisers, Rockin' Dopsie Jr. and the New Orleans Jazz Vipers.Henk, by all means post more of your favorites.--Bruce
