>>53841367
Just getting into it. So far I listened to
>Pat Matthews Band - American Garage & New Chautauqua
>Pharaoh Sanders - Elevation & Karma
>Marc Johnson - Bass Desires
The Pat Matthews Band sound is too similar to elevator music and rarely does something happen. The chaotic wall of sound parts in Pharaoh Sanders' music I greatly enjoyed and Bass Desires was a varied and interesting listen that I have come back to quite often already.

I don't know Pat Matthews, and only know Marc Johnson through his sideman work. however, if you like Sanders' work I would reccommend you to tryother free saxophonists, such as late Coltrane, Mats Gustafsson, Joe McPhee or Charles Gayle

Very good trio albums with William Parker/Hamid Drake or Oyvind Storesund/Paal Nilssen-Love. I'm not sure which combination I like more. The telepathy between Parker and Drake is unmatched and Drake's sense of rhythm and groove is so great. The European trio often turns into sound explorations more in the style of European free improvisation, but PNL can lay down a mean and rocking groove, like he does on "Nothing is Forever".

Frode Gjerstad is unique when it comes to Norway (some might say an anomaly) in the sense that he pursued a radically different style as opposed to people like Jan Garbarek (the ECM sound). Gjerstad's larger group, Circulasione Totale Orchestra, is also worth checking out.
>>
any of you guys like Hypnotic Brass Ensemble?

Just a group of all brass(+percussion), but some of their songs are really good lots of filler though.

I like William Parker a lot, I saw him performing solo last year, kick ass performance, so I'll try to check out these albums when I come back from holidays (internet's very slow here so I can't download anything)
thanks for the reccommendation

Where can I find recordings of these?
>>
>>53842491
No problem. Jeremiah Cymerman described William Parker as "the shaman of East Village" in one his podcasts. Parker is not old school like Sonny Rollins or Cecil Taylor, but he's been around a long time, doing community stuff (like the Vision Festival).

>>53843225
Rutracker for the Frode Gjerstad stuff.

I got the Le Lann album at the library, dunno about it being online. However, as I said before, I can't up anything because shit mountain internet
>>
Still getting caught up on 2015 releases. I've been really enjoying this one the past couple days. Really fantastic playing.

This morning I listened to Randy Brecker's album with the DePaul big band. It was pretty good but not quite as good as I was hoping.

>>53843196
How is this record? I usually really like Kikoski's playing.
>>
>>53843196
This could be an interesting album to check out. I have only heard Foster's drumming while he was playing with Miles in the 1970s.
>>
Have you accepted Sun Ra as your lord and saviour yet?
>>
>>53843668
I found it pretty good, even if Le Lann tries too much to sound like Miles Davis at times
>>
>>53843436

stuff like this or François Couturier's work with his Tarkovsky quartet may float your boat if not troll
>>
>>53847335
Anthony Braxton, the list goes on.
>>
>>53847407
sadly im serious. i cant stand popular music for the most part, and never really touched jazz because i held the mentality there's plenty of Art music to avoid ever having to listen to Popular music. well, after a guitarist friend talked about jazz being his favorite music, i figure id give it one last try

>>53847418

come on, nigga

Sorry man. I can't think of another dude who has been considered too white for the jazz world and too black for the classical world.

Thanks a lot mane. I'll listen to anything with WP and HD on it. I used to listen to pic related a few years ago but then forgot about him. It was beautiful. I'm now downloading three more albums of that trio from rutracker. Thanks again

HOW THE HELL DO I SOLO OVER CHANGES

PLEASE HELP
>>
>>53849364
pick a note that's not the root and start there
>>
>>53849449
So I can only play the third fifth and seventh?
>>
>>53849489
no, use the entire scale, plus leading tones, passing tones, chromaticism etc.
i'm juts suggesting you don't start on the root, but you can really do whatever you want.
it also helps if you hit some of the notes that are in the melody.
just listen to some people you like anon, and try to do what they're doing

What do you guys think of George Garzone?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QNSXJ6A6Pc
>>
>>53849742
badass.
always has been.

seems like he's finally getting some recognition.
i know he played the Vanguard with Joe Lovano recently
>>
>>53847335
Check out Bill Evans, Mingus, Craig Taborn, Alex Sipiagin
>>
>>53847335
probably not. you're most likely too righteous for such negro savagery
>>
>>53849364
being familiar with arpeggios would help. as an exercise play arpeggios for the progression and learn their shapes. soon you'll notice patterns and how to voice the harmony without relying on chord tones to guide your way.
