    We're a small country but we have a very healthy and thriving jazz scene with dozens of outstanding bands and players. If I'd have the time I would go and see one every week. Well, I'm satisfied when I make it once a month.

    So a few weeks ago I went to see Artvark, a saxophone quartet, that played their beautiful new (concept) album Trance. A symphonic poem for hogs and a truffle. On the inside of the cd they present one of the imaginary roadmaps to listen to the music by.

    I just purchased Christian Scott's Stretch Music and Centennial Trilogy from Ropeadope (https://ropeadope.com/). Now for the waiting.

    Just picked this up at a local shop. Sounds fantastic! Haven't listened to any Tim Berne since the Science Fiction band with Marc Ducret. This new one was recorded live December 2014 in Rhinebeck, NY, a town near Poughkeepsie in the Hudson valley that was settled by the Dutch in the late 18th century.

    Any thoughts on Henry Threadgill?

    I wouldn't have guessed Threadgill with all the piano, but I was moved by that beautiful piece. I'm mostly familiar with his trio, Air.

    It was mentioned in a classical music thread but deserves mention here: ECM has finally made its music library available for streaming.

    Too much good stuff to choose from, but I particularly dig his Sextett and Zooid groups, the latter with Ellman:

    Had several hours on the road today, so I planned my listening time accordingly:



    I love music. I want music. I need music.

    Getting back to Threadgill. This is one of my favorite things of his. A large ensemble he never recorded.

    Currently listening to:
    John Coltrane - A Love Supreme Live at Festival Mondial du Jazz Antibes, July 26, 1965
    I recently, impulsively, bought the 3-disc complete masters and am now bathing in the light of the single live performance of the greatest piece of music from the second half of the 20th century. I'm not sure I actually believe that, but, it would be on the short list of contenders that I would consider.
