I'm looking for suggestions for great jazz released in 2004.
Keith Jarrett - The Out-Of-Towners
Maria Schneider - Concert in the Garden
Geri Allen - The Life of a Song
The Bad Plus - Give
Brad Mehldau - Anything Goes
Brad Mehldau - Live in Tokyo
Don Byron - Ivey-Divey
Bill Frisell - Unspeakable
Medeski Martin & Wood - End of the World Party
Michael Brecker/Joe Lovano/Dave Liebman - Sax Summit
Frank Kimbrough - Lullabluebye
Joel Frahm & Brad Mehldau - Don't Explain
Fred Hersch - Fred Hersch Trio +2
Just to name a few of my favourites...
Fly - a new group with Mark Turner, Larry Grenadier, and Jeff Ballard
EST - Seven Days Of Falling (CD and DVD double disc)
Ben Allison - Buzz
Dave Douglas - Strange Liberation
I mentioned it before in the Bassists forum, but the new Mort Weiss Trio CD "The Three of Us", featuring Dave Carpenter on Bass, is really tasty.
It's here on Amazon:
or maybe this is neater: http://tinyurl.com/6jwdg
My UK Favourites are
Camouflage - Acoustic Ladyland
Jigsaw - Stan Sulzmann
Jazz Outreach Project - Digital Directions
Sorry, couldn't resist.
NOT KOOL STEVE!! NOT KOOL AT ALL! LOL very funny though
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
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 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.
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.
For what it's worth, this year's Jazz Grammy Nominations are out. It looks like all the nominees this year are currently alive!
another strong reccomendation, I think it came out this year and I just got it for hannuka - kenny Wheeler's new album Dream Sequence
