Iiro Rantala, Michael Wollny & Leszek Możdżer - Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic I

 

Revisiting this after getting the spark from Iiro Rantala's new album. When I first heard this I remember being left quite underwhelmed. After being determined and listening to it through numerous times I did learn to appreciate it however. Now after some time has passed and I've gotten acquainted with both Wollny's and Możdżer's output, I find this album being pure bliss to my ears. I find this record to be something quite special.

 

 

 

(The video of Svantetic is from a different concert but still as impressive if not more.)

listening to the fisrt two of four discs ("Brilliant Corners" 1957 & "Thelonius in Action" 1958, and "Thelonius Himself" 1959). This jazz series that came out in 2013 is a good way to get a lot of music economically. But, for the price there are some caveats. No liner notes, albums continue from one disc to another reminding me of taping LPs back in the day on cassettes. So disc one has Brilliant Corners and 4 songs from Thelonius in Action. Disc two continues with the last 3 songs of Thelonius in action and Thelonius  Himself. So, if you wanted to hear all of Thelonius in Action, you would have to start midway through disc one, then switch CDs. And, the CDs have just the original release tracks-no extra tracks.

 

Still for under $10.00 it's a bargain.

 

 

 

I really like this indie/alt rock album from 2013-garage punk/pop sound that's not afraid of the word "rock".-meaning that rock is supposed to embrace the instrument known as the electric guitar (ah hem note to Vampire Weekend) :wink_face:

 

 

Going through an early 70's fusion thang-love this!

 


This collection has 3 fusion Hanock releases-Fat Albert Rotunda (from the Cosby cartoon) that hold up really well-funk fusion, Mwandishi and Crossings which get spacier and weirder-but are terrific for open minded folks open to experimentation within the jazz realm...thumbs up in a big way for me....quite good collection on two discs.

 

 

I've avoided Marsalis for some reason-Black Codes is excellent....I do get the Miles Davis comparisons...but for an 80's hard or post bop album-really enjoy Black Codes

 

 


Dang-beautiful music! 1975 concert-hugely popular back in

the day.

 


Free Jazz-I don't know why I was so afraid-find this really quite melodic and user friendly IMO

Black codes is good but he has better. I prefer Marsalis over Davis by a big margin. Miles Davis is an excellent player and has some great albums but i just prefer to listen to Wynton. 

There was a lot of tension between to the 2 players in the 80's - some of the things that Miles said about Wynton was uncalled for. It just came off as cheap low blows - saying that he

"has no feeling" and crap like that. I honestly think Davis felt intimidated by Wyntons talent and competitiveness. If you look at the albums they released in the 80's, Wyntons output was

great and miles had that crap album with Marcus Miller. I mean the smell of cheese off that thing. What was he thinking calling Wynton out and then releasing crap like that. 

 

But yea - cool post, black codes is interesting. Have you heard "live at the village vanguard"?

I'm really just exploring jazz and Black Codes is my first Marsalis.I'm open to suggestions. I saw a good review for the Vanguard recording. Was also thinking about J Moods.

 

I've got tickets to see Metheny in a few weeks and Branford Marsalis is playing in April in N.VA. and I may see if I can get tickets...so my interest is sparked.

 

But, my main reference is the the 50's and 60's Miles, Coltrane, etc.

Hahaha. You know something's up when you have a classical crossover duo playing to an audience wearing baroque-style clothing


That's pretty cool.
