    A couple more from the Burton. The uprising guitarist Julian Lage is in his new quartet, and I've been digging him for a while. Don't know why I'm just finding this out...

    A great track and a great album. (It was on one of the playlists I posted earlier). Gary Burton has been on a roll ever since he retired from the Berklee School of Music. His work with Julian Lage is really striking. I much enjoyed Common Ground (Mack Avenue, 2011). For that matter, I much enjoyed that reunion live album with Pat Metheny and Steve Swallow:



    I listened to all three just this afternoon.

    Right on. His new quartet is top-notch. I also scooped up Common Ground. Will be checking out that reunion album, as well. So much to get, so little money....

    That album caused me to go to Little Tokyo back when I lived by LA and try to find a globular flute. I didn't succeed. It's probably a good thing.

    Current listening: a couple of classics from Freddie Hubbard's CTI days:



    Still, my favorites by Hubbard are mostly albums in which he plays as a sideman (e.g. Wayne Shorter's Speak No Evil, Herbie Hancock's Empyrean Isles, Art Blakey's Free for All), though his early Ready for Freddie (Blue Note, 1961) is masterful.

    Awesome thread!

    I am a jazz piano player and composer. I wanted to share one of my favorite compositions I wrote and dedicated to Thelonius Monk, paying homage to his ground-breaking style:

    Adam, That is a very fine track. I found that your album Market Street Afternoon is available as a download on Amazon. Congratulations. I see that it came out in 2012. Anything new in the works?

    Thank you!! Yes, we released a second album of my jazz compositions titled Frogs Playing Backgammon in 2013. It is not up on iTunes or amazon yet, but will be soon. Right now all of the tracks are on my youtube channel.

    Here is my favorite one from the new album:


    I don't have any other albums in the works this year. I've been catching up on my "classical" compositions, of which I post some of them over at the Today's Composers forum. I'm doing a lot of composition contests and it is keeping me busy, writing-wise. My jazz group plays every Friday at a local restaurant, so I keep up what little playing chops I have that way.

    Recently, I arranged my jazz composition "The Far Side" from Market Street Afternoon for a composition contest and it was a finalist. It was performed with the other finalists earlier this month by the Boathouse Cello Choir in Florida.

    Incredible jazz rendition of the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby" performed by Vince Guaraldi:

    One of my favorite current jazz groups is Medeski, Martin & Wood. They have been one of the cutting-edge groups since the mid-1990s. They are a trio of keyboards/organ, bass, drums and have, as their core, this groove-based, funk sound. But they are also fearless experimentalists and have stretched their sound with intriguing use of electronica and all sorts of other effects. They sometimes add a fourth to their trio, such as guitarist John Scofield and (recently) Nels Cline, as well as turntablist/effects wiz DJ Logic. They have had a strong cross-over appeal from an early date and draw out all sorts of younger listeners. In the 1990s, they toured with Phish and became associated with the jam-band scene. They did a series of increasingly bold records for Blue Note, and when they completed their contract, Blue Note released an excellent compilation of their years with the label under the title Note Bleu: Best of the Blue Note Years, 1998-2005. Since then they have released records under their own label (Indirecto), and in 2008-2009 released a trio of albums (arguably their best) under the title Radiolarians.

    I got turned onto this band through their Decapo albums Giraf, and China Jungle.

    I've been revisiting my Volker Kriegel albums lately. His 1972 MPS album Inside: Missing Link is one of my better discoveries in the past couple of years. Beautifully recorded, with great material and featuring some top tier German and British jazz musicians.
