    Beautifully calming new ECM release, solo Marc Johnson meandering between blues and batuque. Not to be missed.

    It may be sacrilege, but this guy was said to possibly swing even harder than Django.

    Sometimes I need music that reminds me of the long climbs on snowy peaks that are the closest that I come to a "spiritual" pursuit. The rhythms and spacings in this new Crump/Davis/McPherson release do it, their constantly shifting asymmetries bringing back the fractal mountain landscape and then those well-spaced, only too brief, turns among rocks and trees. FWIW:

    PS. Crump is sooo good, I wish I could follow his rhythm on skis...

    It's cool to see them sell directly, not going through an intermediary like Bandcamp (which I like). I assume one less intermediary means more money for the musicians, but who knows.

    When I talked with GR and his producer/Web guy, it wasn't clear to me that the economics of managing a separate digital download site worked for them, which is I think why they put it on hold. But e-commerce infra has got a lot more efficient with Shopify and its competitors. Bandcamp still has the lion's share of independent downloads, and some small labels like Edition are trying to make it on their own (I hate their really broken e-commerce setup, not to mention CAM Jazz's total surrender to the major distributors). If I had a spare work life, I'd be trying to help independent jazz do do proper e-commerce, but I'm too busy as it is...

    This is great, thanks. Reminds me a little of Eve Risser and Co.'s En Corps. Have you heard it?

    This young woman has an amazing voice, and an incredible understanding and passion for the music she sings. Great stuff.

    Neither of these great players is primarily known for playing bebop. Yet here each one is, absolutely killing it on the bebop classic, "Cherokee."

    I love bebop without reservation. Jazz without bebop would be unimaginable...

    Neither of those guys are that original, which is why I think they're not super high regarded in jazz "purist" circles. Both both can play the heck out of their instruments like few have been able to.

    I agree with you about bebop. Songs like Donna Lee or Brownie Speaks are archetypal jazz tunes.
