    Just a reminder to anyone who might be a bit lost, this is a DG (Double Bass) thread - if you are a bass guitarist, there is a "What are you listening to" thread in BG, which can be found Here.
     
  2. I've resisted posting because a thread of the same name exists at Jazz Corner, a galling collection of dilletantes, blowhards, and A-holes (many people are all three), but here goes:

    I'm listening to a recording of She Dances played by Chris Fitzgerald (yes, our Chris Fitzgerald). The best part is, he's not playing bass. Chris is also a gifted pianist. No, you can't buy this in any store.
     
  3. Recent DB/EUB listening:

    Spyro Gyra (w/Scott Ambush) - The River Between
    Bob Hurst - Music from the film Oceans Eleven

    :cool: :cool:
     
  4. I'm listening to Jim Hall's Something Special...Also with some hilarious cover art by Gary Larson.
    Gary's a guitarist and has studied with several of our " Big Time" jazz guitarists.

    Right now....nothing, because it's 6:00 am. But lately I've been listening a lot to Fred Hersch's "Live at the Village Vanguard", with Drew Gress and Nasheet Waits. Nice.

    Chuck Sher publishes my book, WALKING BASSICS:The Fundamentals of Jazz Bass Playing.
    Dave Berkman's HANDMADE (Ugonna Okegwo on bass)
    Warne Marsh BACK HOME
     
  7. Charlie Haden and John Taylor - Nightfall on Naim
    Alec Dankworth - if you're passing by on Candid (after seeing him and his drummer-less trio give a superb concert - though oddly I've ended up with some real cruddy cds after being entranced with the gig)
     
  8. History of Jazz, Volume I w/ Michael Moore, Ken Peplowski and Tom Melito. It's great to hear Moore in a pianoless trio.

    Air - Talkie Walkie
    Bad Plus - Give
    Loretta Lynn - Van Lear Rose
    Descendents - Cool to be You

    Ok, only one has anything to do with DB, but you asked. The Air one has me hypnotized, its like a cross between Ween (their mellower stuff mostly), Tortoise, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, and Pinback. Again, that may have little interest for alot of you, but also again, that's what the thread is, and I am impressed as hell with all of these Cds.

    Thought you meant Air , as in the trio with Fred Hopkins on bass.

    The Loretta CD is killer, I heard a few tracks. She is a fantastic singer, one of my favorites.

    I liked the Bad Plus CD, but it seemed a little one-dimensional dynamically, so I didn't buy it, thinking I'd get tired of it quickly. Need to hear it again.

    Er....thanks?

    That sweater he's wearing on the album cover...imagine what that smelled like after about 500 takes....
     
  18. Currently, myself. I got around to listening to some raw tracks from a couple of sessions with a trio I frequent. We're supposed to do some more recording tonight.

    The good news is that my good moments don't sound too painfully bad to me. I'm typically very, very self-critical of my recordings, so the fact that I can even finish a tune is a nice sign.

    The bad news is that my bad moments are confused, confusing, microtonal, or some combination of the above.

    I've been listening to a lot of Caetano Veloso, Wynton's new one, Dave Holland's newer stuff, and I've been trying to get into MMW's The Dropper.
     
  19. Yeah Mike....My man....that's a riot!!!!!
