Happy Birthday Mr. Coltrane...



One of my all-time favorite Coltrane tunes, Equinox from "Coltrane's Sound" 1960 Atlantic Records.

I have just noticed that I have to be in a jazz mood to listen to jazz. Sometimes it's just the perfect thing to listen to, and then other times I'd much rather listen to some skull crushing metal; and after too much metal I have to cleanse my palate with the beautiful melodies of prog. Then I can go back to jazz. That's what's great about listening to more than one style of music.

Wes Montgomery tackles Coltrane's "Impressions", this one is a must watch. Coltrane wanted Montgomery to join his band in 1961 but Wes was making good money on his own so it never worked out. But it would have been awesome...

I'm finding that to be true as well.

I've been getting into Classical lately, mostly Stravinsky and Mussorgsky.

That instrument is called a "Chapman Stick" or just a "Stick". Tony Levin from King Crimson was the first guy I saw play one.

Been listening to some Jazz today, so I figured I'd dust off this thread.

The highly influential Gary Burton Quartet from the late 60's featuring guitar legend Larry Coryell on this feature tune. This is the real deal my friends.

Zappa was always a major jazz fan, so who knows.

"Duster" is easily one of the best jazz-rock albums ever released (and it's also just about the first one).

Back from the dead once more.

Today we take a look at John Patton (aka Big John Patton), one of the most lyrical of the Hammond organists of the 1960's. Instead of going for the full on grease like many organists of the day, Patton had his sights on other areas, mixing in elements of the avant-garde and modal jazz (Larry Young would continue this exploration later).

LISTEN to this tune and you'll hear the basic sound that The Allman Brothers and Santana would explore in another 5 years...



featuring Bobby Hutcherson (vibes), Grant Green (guitar) & Otis "Candy" Finch on drums, recorded in 1965.

I've always heard of Patton but never heard him or even realized the measure of his talent and influence. Killer stuff.

taking it a little more "out" today. Once you get past the short free-form introduction, it settles into an INSANE latin groove. McCoy Tyner is a true legend on the piano, I've seen him 5 different times since the mid 90s.

This tune, from the remaster of Red Clay, is a work of art.

It's got Freddie Hubbard, Stanley Turrentine, Johnny Hammond, George Benson, Ron Carter, and Billy Cobham. Terrific lineup, and a terrific jam.
