Quote from: T. D. on January 02, 2021, 08:49:57 AMYear-end purchases (just before the bell, not yet received):Kenny Wheeler, Gnu High
Quote from: Mirror Image on January 02, 2021, 08:24:36 PMOne of my favorite jazz albums of all-time. I'm quite a fan of Wheeler's music and he has done many other great albums (The Widow in the Window and Music for Large & Small Ensembles being particular highlights), but none of them have meant as much to me as Gnu High. Another ECM album that would come with me to the desert island is Jan Garbarek's Witchi-Tai-To.
Quote from: T. D. on January 03, 2021, 09:55:08 AMI listened to a lot of (jazz) ECM back in the '80s to early '90s (Metheny, Corea, Jarrett and a few others), but slowed down for whatever reason and even developed some dislike for their "trademark sound". The pendulum swung back, and I've been listening to more lately.Never heard any Kenny Wheeler (as leader) until a few months ago, when Music for Large and Small Ensembles really impressed me. Got his Black Saint/Soul Note box and have been meaning to add more of his ECMs.
Quote from: Mirror Image on January 03, 2021, 07:23:23 PMVery nice. I've always been an 'ECM guy' as far back as when I was in my early teens. I think the first ECM album that I heard that impressed me (and still does) to no end was Ralph Towner's Solstice (another desert island recording for me). I never have been able to get into Keith Jarrett, but his work on Gnu High and his earlier work with Miles Davis and Charles Lloyd is an exception.
Quote from: T. D. on January 03, 2021, 07:50:13 PMCan't disagree with you on Jarrett. Started listening to him because he was a Miles alumnus. I kept a couple of his old Euro quartet ECMs (Belonging and Personal Mountains) that are pretty good in places, but his long solo concerts (e.g. Koln, La Scala) wore out their welcome after a few listens and got culled. I stopped following his work as leader, but wouldn't avoid him as sideman with musicians I like.
Quote from: T. D. on January 03, 2021, 09:44:08 PMYes, an awful lot of jazz pianists vocalise. I've kind of gotten used to it, because a couple I greatly admire (Bud Powell and Barry Harris) are pretty loud. But Jarrett bugs me the most by far. Powell is nearly over the line, but I have to let it go because he's such a legend.
