Jimmy Greene: soprano & tenor saxophone

Avishai Cohen Trio is my favorite band of all time so I'm a bit biased. There are 2 Avishai Cohens, one is definitely more popular than the other but I think both are based in Israel.
Avishai Cohen on the double bass and Maestro on piano. Amazing stuff from the Chick Corea protege. Saw the trio twice in concert in Seattle and Portland. Great live or LCD-2. Double bass plucking can really be heard prominently on the LCD-2.
Great reccomendation i bought the whole album. Continuo
Really appreciate this thread! It's great to get some new recommendations.
I listen to mostly classical, especially choral music, like Talis Scholars, Anonymous 4, Chanticleer... Also lots of chamber music. I like Arvo Part, Tavener, and some other minimalists.
For Pop, I'm a big fan of recent Leonard Cohen, from 10 New Songs through Old Ideas, and the current singers like Norah Jones, Patricia Barber, Diana Krall.
Still enjoy an occasional Beatles tune.
I also listen to lots of '40's music, although obviously not as audiophile fare.
Some jazz, like Charles Lloyd, Wynton Marsalis, Christian McBride, plus classics like big band music, boogie-woogie, Getz-Giberto, Satchmo, etc.
Random eclectic albums, like S.A.V.A.E., novelty songs, etc.
Al Marconi on LCD3 via Mjolnir/Gungnir. Whatever anyone says about the "X" phones for me it just does not matter. This setup is so exquisite [for me] I just listen in amazement and in pure bliss... That is all that matters...
If you like Avishai's vocals then check out his "Sensitive Hours" album. Released only in Israel but you can get it fairly easy in the States.
