For Evans as leader I would recommend Time Remembered

Magical.

Sonny Rollins' Next Album from 1972

First album after a break from the studio of six years. Some electric bass and piano, bit of conga, a nice listen, nothing earth-shatttering.

Sonny's playing makes this an album worthy of devoted listening, as ever.

Alice Coltrane - Translinear Light

Bought in a local charity shop yesterday. I think of it as 'recent' but it is in fact twenty years old.

*sigh*

That would be like listening to Star People from Miles Davis in 1982 and saying 'This is a bit different from the recent album I bought from him - Kind of Blue'

Scored this last night in Fopp for four quid - remastered and greatly expanded CD version. I dithered about it - can Paul Desmond and Jim Hall plus orchestra really be called jazz?

Paul Desmond - Desmond Blue

Silly me. It is an utterly fantastic listen.

Ah Um is majestic! But I've said it once and I'll say it again: Tijuana Moods is Mingus at his very best.

Was just listening to Wayne Shorter's "Night Dreamer". It's his first album on Blue Note, featuring the likes of McCoy Tyner and Lee Morgan. Fantastic album that, for me, has broken ground for the further development of Jazz Music. The liner notes on the back are ridiculous, though. Fucking hippy.

Yes it is, but it's Mingus, Mingus, Mingus, Mingus, Mingus for me (I think)

Eric Dolphy on alto saxophone, flute and bass clarinet which is a bonus for me

Tonight I’ve listened to Jackie McLeans’s One Step Beyond on (Blue Note), Bennie Maupin’s Jewel In The Lotus on (ECM) and now Wynton Marsalis - Thick In The South (Columbia). All very different and all very excellent. Played drums in the band that does all original material by the guitarist Jim Maxerick. I never sleep well after those gigs. Must be the drumming because playing guitar doesn’t wire me up. Anyway, exhausted but these jazz albums helped soothe me to hopefully a good night sleep tonight.
