    they've already been mentioned on this thread, but my jazz albums of 2004 would be:
    Stan Sulzman - The Jigsaw
    Fred Hersch Trio + 2
    Brad Meldhau Trio - anything goes

    and not Jazz, but amazing:

    Luciano Berio - Voci (on ECM)

    JOY and GRAVITAS - Jimmy Halperin, Dominic Duval, Jay Rosen
    See review
  10. Thomas Stanko - Suspended Night - on ECM is top of my list - and one of the best gigs of the year.

    well the mmw end of the world party is not jazz in the straightahead sense...but their notes from the underground cd is...and it was just remastered with an extra song :D so that counts huh. www.mmw.net to order that

    check out chicago underground trio-slon is the album name.

    EDIT: fred anderson/hamid drake-back together again.....no bass playing, most likely really free sax and drums. :bassist:
  12. Same here! I love the bass playing on this record (by Slamowir Kurkiewicz, a young Polish bass player). I would like to add the latest record of Marlyn Crispell and Lift!, the live album by Chris Potter.

    Thanks, all.

    For what it's worth, this year's Jazz Grammy Nominations are out. It looks like all the nominees this year are currently alive!
