    I did post after hearing him at SFJAZZ with Wil Blades (Hammond organ), Scott Amendola (drums), and Cyro Batista (percussion). It was a splendid gig. I sort of knew of Amendola and Batista as they've been around the NYC avant-garde scene for a long time, appearing in multiple John Zorn productions, but Parker and Blades were new to me and a revelation. They had a few different CDs for sale outside, including The New Breed :) My Jeff Parker collection since then has grown:

    Slight Freedom
    The Relatives
    Bright Light in Winter


    He also plays as a sideman in Will Blades's Field Notes.

    Just got back home from 2 weeks of travel, some backlog of new jazz releases. Here's the first I'm listening to this very early morning (thanks to 10 hours of jetlag). Think watching a dark, starry night sky away from artificial light, with snowy mountain peaks barely etched on the dark horizon, a hint of Northern lights above the mountains, a slight cold breeze making the night air alive around you. Yes, that magical and awe-inspiring, every single note counting.

    Just out on Intakt/Bandcamp. I had tickets for their recent SFJAZZ gig, but I had to travel instead. Dense, rich layering of different sounds, spacious. Avant-garde-ish without being totally alien. A keeper.

    Growing up in Monterey, I was exposed to amazing jazz as a child:

    That whole album is outstanding, not the least by bringing together three of my favorite musicians who AFAIK never played together elsewhere: Craig Taborn, Christian McBride, and Tyshawn Sorey.
