Thanks for this recommendation. I love the backing of these tracks and the attempt to make free jazz sound good (the horror!) although I have to say I'm not sold on Cherry's voice. 

 

Have you heard this? It also features Gustafsson with female vocals.

The Fire! Orchestra piece reminds me a lot of this William Parker track.

A few more favorites. Although Henry Threadgill has been around for forever, he still creates some of the most creative, modern sounding jazz. I really like his guitarist Liberty Ellerman.

 

 

This is the title track (a little more tranquil than the rest) to one of the better jazz albums I've bought recently. Craig Taborn is IMO a brilliant pianist.

 

 

This Eve Risser album is the most startlingly new, unique and captivating music I've heard in a very long time.

Finally, I don't know if this is technically jazz, but I can't stop listening to it.

No I haven't but I will ! 

 

 

Thanks to TJ Elite from "What're you listening to right now" thread  I discovered Pierrick Pédron' Cheerleaders: 

 

 

 

First listen yesterday evening and I really appreciated what I listened to !

Great to see this thread still alive! Thanks for all the contributions fellow Jazz lovers. 

 

Heres my current fave recording. Kris Davis is a remarkable and inventive musician. Her angular piano lines aren't easy listening but very rewarding. I do hear a Keith Jarrett influence. 

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

 

Talking about Jarrett... 

This one is essential. 

 

 

 

 

Also, this is the second release from Christian Lillingers Grund. Whom I first recommended on the opening post.

Modern, never a dull moment and very inventive drumming. 

 

 

 

This is another pianist I really admire. Craig Talborn, he has a way of getting under your skin by not really doing very much, by that I meant nothing is ever overstated. Very infectious with his use of repeats. Huge talent.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80

 

Happy listening :beerchug:

Thanks for posting.

Always enjoyed Henry Threadgill and haven't thought about his music in years...

It seems that it is mostly the Europeans keeping jazz alive.   It seems that more than 90% of the artists I listen to come from somewhere in Europe.

This is because many European countries have value systems that respect creative work that extends beyond the purely commercial IMO.

Sigh...the U.S. is not a good place to live if you are a jazz fan.

I would say that the American jazz musicians are doing their fair share:

 

Dave Douglas

Ken Vandermark

Maria Schnieder

Don Byron

David Murray

Keith Jarrett

John Scofield

Jack DeJohnette

Charlie Haden

Pat Metheny

Carla Bley

Gary Burton

Ravi Coltrane

John Zorn

Matthew Shipp

William Parker

Esperanza Spalding

Terri Lyne Carrington

Geri Allen

and many, many, many more....

 

Just sayin'

Yeah, and most of them are  playing in NY or Europe.  Sometimes I get lucky and some of them show up in Los Angeles.

Last time I checked NY was in the US :blink:

 

So I guess you should have said "LA is not a good place to live if you are a jazz fan."

 

But New York City is and has been the jazz capital of the US ever since Duke Ellington opened at the Cotton Club in 1929!

 

 

Yes I know it's not from this Century but I love Duke and could not resist. We now return you to some present day jazz.

Yeah, but not everyone lives in NY.  Come one, you know what I was trying to say.  :wink:

While I understand what you're trying to say, I couldn't disagree with you more. If you think Jazz is a marginalized music now, imagine taking all the Jazz artists based in the U.S out of the picture! IMO, no U.S, no Jazz!....incoming!!!!wink.gif. Actually, I own Jazz from all over the planet but....I have to say 90+% of my collection stems from the states. Most of what I see recommended from Europe seems to have that ECM vibe. There was a time, not too long ago, that ECM's catalog was called New Age. I HATE New Age! But hey, that's just me, ECM always did and always will have a huge fan base. End of rant!
