    I bought an actual CD today! :eek: I buy much of my music on-line: most at eMusic (see the 'eMusic' thread for that).

    But KJazz played 'Embraceable You' from David Hazeltine's new release "Blues Quarters Vol. 2" this morning and unfortunately when I went across the street to Amoeba they had it in stock :rollno: :p

    David Hazeltine is always worth listening to, especially when he has Peter Washington with him on bass as on this CD.

    'Embraceable You' caught my ear because of the wonderful two-feel playing by Peter Washington. Each note placed perfectly; a beautifully simple line with his great sound and just enough adornment to add interest without detracting from the music. Masterful.

    The playing, recording and mixing are all great on this CD, so I can easily recommend it. :cool:

    I was so impressed I went and bought his recent trio album with Peter Washington on bass, "Perambulation."

    Another good one :) :hyper:

  4. His CDs are available here in UK. Think I'll start with the Blues Vols.

    Nice to see a guy from Wisconsin getting great stuff done. But I wonder how many times he's had to correct people on the correct pronunciation of his last name....:meh:

    TYne, long I, like the things that stick out of a rake. This is according to my friend Sean Lyons, who plays tenor with him quite a bit.
     
  9. I'm a few years younger than Hazeltine, but I used to see him perform quite frequently in Milwaukee when he was still around. At a ridiculously young age, he was house pianist at the Jazz Gallery, backing up the name acts that came through (Pepper Adams was a particularly memorable one). I remember Cedar Walton being a huge influence on him, and for a while, you couldn't hang at a Milwaukee jam session without at least a few Cedar Walton tunes under your belt.

    I actually played a couple of gigs with him when he temporarily moved back from NYC a few years ago. Kicked my ass and knew he was doing it. He and Gerald Cannon made a formidable team at that time.

    Gerald Cannon! Another Cheesehead jazz guy, I forgot he was a homeboy. I just saw him with McCoy Tyner, and Eric Gravatt, who's almost a cheesehead.

    I've gotten to play with David a time or two at the Aebersold camps. He's a ridiculously good player with an even more ridiculous sense of humor, which makes him a fun hang both on and off stage. When he and Andy LaVerne get together, the deadpan goofyness is unnerving.
