    Oh yes, he's a good arranger and I own several recordings with his string arrangements. One of the last jazz recordings I bought is an album by Danilo Perez called "Across the Crystal Sea" where Ogerman's string arrangements are placed prominently throughout it. You must check out this album:

But then I also like The Bad Plus, a far noisier jazz trio who also covers Radiohead.

    I like Ogerman too when I'm in a Third Stream mood. I have the 1977 album Gate of Dreams.

    I'm a fan of Mehldau's first couple of albums and "The Art of the Trio" recordings. That's about it. I was also impressed with his playing on Charles Lloyd's "The Water Is Wide," but that's about it. I don't listen to "Largo," "Haunted Hill," "Day is Done," "Anything Goes," "Places," etc. I'm not a big fan of a jazz musician's original compositions unless it's immediately tuneful and has interesting harmonic content.

    I, at one time, listened to more "out-jazz" a la Andrew Hill, Sam Rivers, etc., but nowadays those cats just sound crazy to me and not very melodic.

    I'm much more interested in hearing what a jazz musician brings to a jazz standard.

    I just repurchased this CD. I recommend it highly-- its subtleties are endlessly rewarding and repay numerous listening sessions.

    So far, my favourite is "Seen and Not Seen".

    Went to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame today and went ahead and bought this as a souvenir:



    Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Pictures at an Exhibition

    I really wanted to get Brain Salad Surgery for Toccata, but that cost more...
