    Good rec @bixby here is the YT link



    Food (the band) is a wonderful mix of avant garde jazz electronica. There are talented folks in the collective.
    NB: the albums should all be available on the major streaming services (including Spotify).

    EDIT: I neglected to mention, I really dig the Molecular Gastronomy album!

    @Gaspasser

    Thanks for the YT link. I am a Nils Petter Moelvaer fan of course and have already marked several Food albums on Tidal, including MG. What a find!

    Caught the last set of the Bill Frisell Trio (Thomas Morgan bass, Rudy Royston drums) week at the Village Vanguard. Wow, just wow. They played nonstop blending folk, blues, Monk, Frisell's own, "Goldfinger", ending in "We Shall Overcome." It was more church than jazz club, the audience seemed entranced. Among other gems, the most improvisationally intricate "Boubacar" I've heard, and I've heard many, both recorded and live. Since you were not there (were you?), here's a sample:

    Went back to the VV last night for more, this time the same Bill Frisell trio with guest sax Greg Tardy, whi I had never heard. It was a very different session, super bluesy, more melodic, a bit more traditional in form, a different kind of emotional engagement than Sunday, but equally strong. Looks like Frisell and Tardy have a new album out that I had missed...

    I was at the Detroit Jazz festival this past weekend. A lot of great acts but 82 year old Ron Carter (Detroit native) may have stolen the show. His rhythm and tone were impeccable. He played a solo and had the whole amphitheater of about 500 was dead silent (he's a bassist). Just an absolute master and legend and someone to make a point of seeing while he's still around. His band is was really good too. Renee Rosnes, who I had never heard of before, was especially good.

    "This video is only available to Music Premium members"

    That's a first for me.

    I found out about this Turkish jazz group via a great record store in Chicago called Dusty Groove. I’m really digging using Instagram as a music discovery tool.

    It is like Anour Brahem joined Bad Plus and they made an album.

    Sorry for that. I have YouTube Red and I didn't realize those tracks were premium. If you have Facebook, I believe there are a few tracks from this new album there.

    This is them live, anyway:

    No worries, thanks.

    Is Red good for jazz?

    Not exactly jazz, but something jazz fans might enjoy. Algerian-Jewish-Cuban. Strong, evocative melodies.

    I have it for some complicated reason to do with my early subscription to Google Music. I actually rarely watch YouTube, as I prefer to listen to music without video, and I the only stuff I care to watch are weird European movies and extreme ski vids ;)
