According to a poll that I made up just now, this is my favorite Monk. It got 100% of my votes.
Hard not to like that one, of course it is hard not to like Monk.
Infinite Sound Contemproary African-American Music originally released in 1975 on Arch Records, reissued 2018 on Aguirre Records, featuring Roland Young, Aisha Kahlil, and Glenn Howell.
As I listen to this record I find it to be a most fine performance and recording. It reminds be to a degree of the work of Chicago’s Phil Cohran from the 1960’s following his tenure with the Sun Ra Arkestra.
Erik Deutsch “Decades” Octave SACD
Impressive sound. I’m warming to the performances.
Logan Richardson “AFROFUTURISM” Whirlwind cd
Not really morning music but I’m digging it.
Listening to Miles Davis and Barney Wilen at the Olympia Theater, November 1957 on the newly released Fresh Sound cd.
Karkhana Al Azraqayn, those who enjoy Anouar Brahem may well appreciate the work of Karkhana. Karkhana features strong middle eastern influences. Chicago percussionist Michael Zerang first introduced me to the fine music of Karkhana.
Easy to like and easy on the ears, the soul jazz of Blue Mitchell on Blue Note Tone Poet, Bring It Home to Me. I’ve forgotten how much I do appreciate Harold Mabern’s keyboard work.
I was intrigued but could not find it on Qobuz!
