    New stuff today. Traded in a few CDs for this new batch.

    Keiko Matsui wasn't bad. It's like smooth jazz/easy listening.

    Patricia Kaas is good stuff so far, but I'm having problems with the disc.

    Glenn Miller I'm sure will be good.

    I watched an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space 9 tonight, a jazz-laden episode called "His Way". In it, a lovestruck Constable enlists the help of a hologram, singer and frontman Vic Fontaine (James Darren), to help learn the ways to a woman's heart.

    The episode features three great tunes:
    Come Fly With Me


    Fever


    The Way You Look Tonight
    (Unable to locate specific clip)

    I enjoyed the episode immensely both for ST fanboy reasons and for jazzman reasons. Sure is great when tunes you know are featured!

    Just because I'm a dumbass rock'n'roll bass player doesn't mean I don't listen to the masters. In two hours, I'm going to the Village Vanguard to see/hear Barry Harris. He's 88 this year, a year for every key, I guess...

    It was. He played some Ellington, some Mingus, asked the audience to come up with some numbers and found a melody for a 3-7-5 progression and, contrary to all my expectations, anyway, got a crowd to sing along, clap off the beat, and various other amazing feats. Including kicking away his cane and walking across the stage on his own two feet to the piano, which got him a big round of applause at the beginning of his set and again at the end.

    Of course what it was really all about was getting a huge amount of music and musical feeling out of a piano/bass/drums trio. They weren't just tight; they were accurate. This is what I love about this music: On the one hand, they were almost casual in their approach, and yet almost every note sounded like it had been carved in stone. If that makes any sense. Leroy Williams has been playing drums with Harris for 50 years; Bassist Calvin Hill has been on and off with Harris since the mid-50s. The interplay between these guys is telepathic.

    And, believe it or not, this relates to my job playing in a bar band. It's all about constant communication; we look at each other. It's the thing that disturbs me the most when I sit in on an open mic or jam: when nobody looks up, there's no chance of doing that.

    I don't have a lot of stuff with Calvin Hill...this one, though, blows me away-


    Alphonse Mouzon on drums, Sonny Fortune on sax.
    "Rebirth" is an apt title

    Erskine's Dr. Um Band gets little attention around here...Ben Shepherd gets no love, either.

    That first bassline on Man With The Horn is awesome! Marcus was the one who talked Miles out of retirement. MIles holed up in his NYC apartment, took drugs and forgot to take the garbage out for several years.
