JAZZ for horn[y] guys.


#1

Tom Harrell has long been one of my horn favorites. This is a particularly good album and his fellow players are no slouch ether.

If you listen closely they are playing straight to your table.

A fine little drummer with an interesting bio.

Here’s a great concert.

So some evening instead of sitting down with the family to watch Bill O’Reilly, ~X(

then this could be a good alternative.

How about a young pianist who is as comfortable with Bach as he is with Jazz.

Here also is Hiromi Uehara showing a few different sides of her personality.

Rumor has it “she really feels her music”. I think so!

For something different.



This has special meaning for me as I was blessed to spend a full moon night on the back deck of the Taj Mahal with a flutist and a tabla player and they played this number, among others.

The flutist was the older brother and teacher of the one in this track, Hariprasad Chaurasia.

His music is magical.

Turn off the lights, light a candle or two and kick back and listen.

Let me know how many planets you visited and maybe you hoped it lasted just a few minutes longer?

I own about 10 Albums by Hariprasad Chaurasia (first one acquired over 20 years ago - Indian Night Live: Stuttgart '88) - absolutely magical. Along with Anouar Brahem in my top three favourite musicians (at the moment). He also did some gigs with Remember Shakti, featuring John McLaughlin and Zakir Hussain.
