Quote from: karlhenning on May 23, 2015, 01:52:26 PMThis landed this past week, recommended by our san anton', and then further endorsed by my brother in the Palmetto State:[asin]B000AAIXQS[/asin]As yet I have only listened to the Suite which is the bonus track at the end of the second disc, but that is a beauty.
Quote from: sanantonio on July 23, 2015, 02:55:58 PMIs that the one with "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy"? If so, it is live and really good.
Quote from: Henk on July 23, 2015, 01:15:46 PMThis is a great live recording by them:
Quote from: Bogey on August 09, 2015, 06:07:01 AM30 tracks from 1963.Here is a reviewA two-CD set, with the band in great form drawing on material from all eras. There are full performances of "Suite Thursday" - much livelier than the studio take, and improved by an extended Nance violin solo on "Lay-By" - and "Tone Parallel To Harlem," in addition to the usual parade of hits ("Rockin' In Rhythm," a rearranged "Perdido"), new material ("Theme From The Asphalt Jungle") and some offbeat oldies ("Rose Of The Rio Grande"). Cootie Williams had just rejoined the band after a twenty-year absence, so "Concerto For Cootie" is back, paired with the new "Tootie For Cootie," and the set ends with "Echoes Of Harlem." Hodges is as tender as ever on his features "On The Sunny Side Of The Street" and "The Star-Crossed Lovers." Strayhorn's bombastic "The Eighth Veil" is one of the stranger tunes here; Gonsalves's feature "Cop-Out," on the other hand, sounds like any big band you'd hear on a 50s film soundtrack. Oh, and if you want to study the distinct approaches of the various soloists, this is a great place to start, because Duke calls out the name of the featured player at the end of each tune (even each solo on the everybody-blows-a-chorus "Jam With Sam"). (DBW)I continue to be drawn to Duke's music and enjoy the later efforts as much as the earlier ones. And being a live/concert recording junkie, this was just too much to pass up.

Quote from: sanantonio on August 12, 2015, 05:05:20 PMYou have good instincts. Tomasz Stanko is an excellent ECM artist. He really got noticed after playing with the legendary pianist Krzysztof Komeda, He's put out many CDs, and they are all uniformly good.
Quote from: Brian on August 12, 2015, 02:58:53 PMOh man, please report back when you hear this. As another late Duke fan and live/concert junkie, I'm very excited by that description.
Quote from: XB-70 Valkyrie on August 13, 2015, 01:30:42 PMCoincidence: I was in the record store (they stock mostly new and used LPs) near my house just the other day, and I saw a Thomasz Stanko used CD for $5. I LOVE the ECM label, and figured it must be good, but I usually don't just buy music by artists I know nothing about. I meant to look this up when I got home, but didn't write it down, so of course I forgot his name...Anyway, after reading this and listening to the sample, I will pop back in there and grab it! His style kind of reminds me of Enrico Rava, who I like a great deal. If you like Stanko, try this (highly recommended):
