    Thanks!
    Parker’s recordings is a maze to get through.
    I keep finding new great ones.

    Yeah I didn't hear The Maid. and I like Seed Triangular better than Code Girl, or at least I listen to it way more. I also liked her album with Bill Frisell a lot.

    I heard Thumbscrew (Halvorson, Michael Formanek, Tomas Fujiwara) live earlier in the year, and I totally fell for their sound, as recorded in Ours and Theirs. BTW, The Maid... is the album with Frisell. I'm not sure about Code Girl yet.

    Yup, my brain slipped a gear again The Maid is the album. I just remember is as the tribute to Johnny Smith DUH. Thumbscrew is great.

    I find Code Girl interesting but I almost never seem to be in the mood to hear it. She has so many other great albums...

    BTW, my current Halvorson favorites are:
    • Crop Circles, with Sylvie Courvoisier
    • Paimon: Book of Angels 32, with Drew Gress, Miles Okazaki, Tomas Fujiwara, composed by John Zorn
    • One of Ours and Theirs, I keep flipping
    • The Maid With the Flaxen Air, with Bill Frisell

    The entire series is an exciting project.
    I have a bunch of them, all interesting - but I never seem to listen to more than one here and there.

    Just got Seed Triangular, thanks, and as I started listening, something else came to mind, the 1973 DGG vinyl release Rara by Leo Brouwer, which I just found out was re-released with additional tracks as a CD in 2002, but is not easy to find (just splurged for a used copy I found on sale online). I have the original vinyl, which is a bit scratched and noisy, but was nicely digitized with a bunch of other old vinyl by my wonderful daughter as last year's Christmas present for her dad :)

    A UK friend turned me on to them when I was in London earlier this year. I there's a whole scene of young jazz musicians in London, that mostly isn't getting international attention. If Binker and Moses were in NYC they'd be on lots of year end best of jazz lists.

    If you like intense polyrhythmic guitar/drum work, this is for you.

    Dude, these three albums have made my week! Especially Piercing The Veil, what an amazing disc! This is what I hoped Charles Lloyd & Billy Higgins: Which Way is East was going to be. If you know of any more albums like the above please share. Thanks again for the amazing recommendations!

    This is the tune I can't stop listening to.

    "Stardust" is one of my favorite songs ever, plus I'm nuts about both reed players here. I love the relaxed, expository solo style of each, no flash or trick runs. Mulligan's comping when Desmond plays is beautiful; it either sounds arranged, because that's how Mulligan thought; or actually is arranged.

    A jazz nuts x crate diggers post:

    I keep going on about The New Mastersounds and they recently dropped The Nashville Session 2. It was recorded all analog, so only fitting to fully enjoy on analog. This is funk jazz done right by the Brits. The whole record is funky as hell and the keyboard player really shines on this set.
    Consider this as my contribution to the best jazz records of 2018. For everything else, I rely on the wisdom of @earnmyturns and @Changeling.
