What Jazz are you listening too? or WJAYLT for short.

Deserves it's own thread really. Let the geeking commence.

I'm loving Michel Legrand's stuff with Miles, I'm not really into the orchestra sound but these tracks are great.

I've been listening to Donal Byrd Byrd in flight a lot recently.

I hope you were wearing a bowler and supping cider.

Btw, The Drifters' version of Stranger On The Shore is loads better than that joker's.  But it's not jazz, so I may not be allowed to mention it here.

Ella, Louis Jordan, Slim Gaillard, Spoon . . .

That's it really, except for my beloved jazz latino:

Mongo
TP
Cal Tjader
Barretto
Bobby Paunetto (yes they spelt his name wrong on his first album)
Francisco Aguabella
Poncho Sanchez

Bob Desena - Destiny is a brilliant track of a more recent vintage.  I know someone who claims to have played it at a Northern soul gig, which is bizarre considering it's a CD only Latin jazz tune from last decade.

This one is an amazing dancer from back in the day - Luis Benjamin Rumba Rumbero, and it's finally online - a gozar amigos:

Apart from that, I'm more blues than jazz.

Here's 5 of the absolute top dogs in Latin music, playing a live jazz gig back in the 80s:

The instrumentation illustrates one reason I love Latin jazz; 5 musicians, of whom 3 are playing percussion (4 if you include double bass).

The Art Ensemble of Chicago - Fanfare For the Warriors.
Miles Davis - The Complete 'In A Silent Way' Sessions.
Herbie Hancock - Sextant.
Peter Brotzmann -The Complete 'Machine Gun' Sessions
Albert Ayler - Spiritual Unity

Liking it a bit chaotic right now.

MGP, thanks for the thought mate.
I've got the 180gm vinyl reissue, it's very heavy and very groovy (god bless those Japanese archivist types).

If you find it, it's a good one to ebay (goes for about £15 for the re-issue and up £35 for the original).

I've lived with this album for over 20 years and still have barely got my head 'round it.
The extra versions, previously unavailable, on the Atavistc re-issue proves it wasn't just random noise but proper 'organised' chaos.

His next album 'Nipples' is also a bit gnarly, like being attacked by a melodic fog-horn with a rhythm section chasing it down the street.

^That's the one with 'Theme de Yoyo' on, great album very e-bayable as The Cinematic Orchestra do it  live and have never recorded it, so their fans as always on the lookout for it.

'Fanfare..' was an early Atlantic album, post ^ 'Les Stance..' and really out-there and includes a tune called 'The Key' which sounds like the Muppets do free-jazz :-)

To be honest it's a beyond my kin, lets face it, brass instruments aren't the sweetest sounding things even when played in a coherent manner! At the moment, I'm delving around early 50;s, to the late 50's early 60's sounds of Miles for the modal stuff and Trane for then trying to put his be-bop theory over the more modal stuff, and trying to understand Tranes chord replacement methods etc. It's certainly a music that makes you work.

You should enjoy George Russell  - Ezz-thetics , a great 'modal' style from that period. Can be found quite cheap on cd wink

The swinging guitar of Tal farlow ha been getting a fair amount of play on my  ipod recently too.

I especially like this

Although I appreciate his work with theory I don't really get on with his music... miserable bastard I am!
