    One of the best parts about Nina Simone’s Carnegie Hall concert wasn’t just that it was personal, wasn’t just that it was political, not just that she is kicking ass as a singer… it’s that she had the audience eating out of her hand. She crushes them and lifts them up.

    I was cruising through my library an re-discovered this jewel from 2008. The entire album is an absolute beast BTW.

    Good goddamn, tho this is derivative Jimmy Smith wannabe stuff, it's frickin' swinging. And with good speakers that slam, it's a good way to spend an afternoon writing with sun streaming in the windows...

    Dan Weiss Trio's new Dedication. Density, rhythmic surprise, grabs and doesn't let go.

    Compiling tunes for a party and got totally hung up on Horace Silver (not for the first time). This is my favorite of his compositions, not just for that tight, propulsive rhythm, but even more for the great solo by Joe Henderson. Joe usually excelled on medium tempo tunes, but here he's really jumping. He plays this chart like a track star going over the high hurdles.

    I did not know of this guy, but it came up as an algorithm based "discovery". An artist not known to me and a bit of an obscure homage. I like Chet Baker so gave it a go and the vocal jazz works for me.

    As a youth I visited a bar that allowed vetted underage to enter around the holidays. The jukebox always had folk like Frank Sinatra and my fave discovery Blossom Deary.

    Now I have been inspired to go down the Chet Baker rabbit hole, much further than previously.

    Amos Lee sings like Chet Baker?

    Really tight band and the track progresses nicely into a more energetic rhythm.

    I got to hear a lot of marimbaists here in CO. My daughter went to a marimba camp or school for a few summers. At least we didn't have to buy one, haha.

    Jon Irabagon's Rising Sun, with Matt Mitchell (piano, Fender Rhodes), Chris Lightcap (electric and acoustic bass), and Dan Weiss (drums), plus guest appearances by Miles Okazaki (guitar) and Adam O'Farrill (trumpet) is hot, dense, tight, as one should expect from this intense crew. I know I'll be listening to this again and again, so many layers in every second. Very well recorded too.

    With O'Farrill with Mitchell creatively channelling In a Silent Way on the last track Needles to take it even higher, I was transported to that night in my youth when Miles rebuilt my sense of music.
