    I've listened to Contra Post, Mr. Danielsson's 1995 album, about eight times in the past three days. Simply put, this disc has everything I look for in a jazz record. Deep, skillful, risky, emotional playing. Thoughtful, uncompromising-yet-accessible writing in a wide variety of styles. First-rate players in every chair, employed in a wide variety of configurations to get the very most of the ensemble sonically. Great recorded sound (my only complaint is that, ironically, the bass could be a drop fuller). It sings, it swings, it walks, it wanders. What a revelation!

    Mr. Danielsson's personal approach calls to mind the cream of his contemporaries, including such names as Holland, Gomez and LaFaro.

    Thank you EMusic. I never would have found this piece and I sure as heck would not have paid fifteen bucks for it if I had. Moments like this are precisely what we most hope for when we subscribe to a service like EMusic.

    Anybody else heard this? Any other suggestions for further listening?

    I need to check that out. I saw him waaay back when with Keith Jarrett, he was great.
  3. I've had it for a while. He is a wonderful bassist! There are several albums with the Peter Erskine Trio that are just great, mostly for his bass playing and there is a beautiful recent Dino Salluzzi trio as well as some earlier Enrico Rava albums all on ECM.
  4. I meant to post something sooner. I bought this on Sam's recommendation and have to agree, it is really fantastic. I had it running in my iPhone for a couple of days just running around grooving to it.
