Jazz Recommendations from this Century - Page 15

post #211 of 235

At the moment there are two active threads of jazz recommendations - this one (duh!) and one called "On a mission to like jazz" I recently made a few recommendations on the "mission" thread but I don't feel the need to double post but they are worth checking out along with the rest of the thread. Anyway the recommendations I'm referring to are in posts # 331 and 334. Here's the link:

As always, enjoy!

Never ! When i was playing Jazz music a  few years ago , I was very up-to-date about Jazz Music. Since this period, i've stopped playing music and I became interested in other subjects. I came back to music and especially Jazz only the past two years ;) . My reference are a bit old (many are still valid ) and I appreciate to discover new musicians. No matter of where they come from ;)

 

One thing didn't change, I tend tu prefer contemporary Jazz despite the fact I immensely appreciate Historic Jazz Musicians . What I appreciate in Jazz is its lively and modern nature.

 

This thread is the right place to be for me :beerchug:

Yeah, I also prefer new artist for the same reason.  Also, some of the older recordings are really hard to get into with headphones.

 

When I want to listen to something like Dave Brubeck (my all-time favorite jazz artist) I have to use speakers.

Jazz is without question my favorite form of music. However, I don't listen to all that many of today's artists. Still, I've been exploring the ACT label's catalog over the past couple of months so here's a video dump for y'all to enjoy.

Since Wadada Leo Smith has not been mentioned as yet in this thread I figure that it's well past the time to give this fabulous musician a shout out.

 

Here is just a short list of some of the many recordings he has been part of since the turn of century.

 

2000 Golden Quartet
2001 Dreams & Secrets
2002 The Year of the Elephant (Golden Quartet)
2004 Yo Miles: Sky Garden
2005 Yo Miles: Upriver
2008 Tabligh  (Golden Quartet)
2009 Spiritual Dimensions (Golden Quartet/Wadada Leo Smith's Organic)
2011 Heart's Reflections (Wadada Leo Smith's Organic)
2012 Ten Freedom Summers
2013 Occupy the World (Wadada Leo Smith & Tumo)

 

And of course a few choice videos of Mr. Smith in action:

^^welcome Daryll buddy :beerchug:

 

 

I'm sure this guy will have already been mentioned, but just incase...

 

Gonzalo Rubalcaba.

 

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

Paseo

 

Supernova

 

His playing is so spontaneous and lively. Latin Jazz at its best for me. 

 

 

Right up with this guy!

 

post #220 of 235

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

 

Discovered today.

 

 

I got this album in my computer a few month ago but didn't listen to it. Terrible mistake! :L3000:

Nguyen Le is a truly original guitar player and totally overlooked and unknown here in the US.

 

I would also recommend this recording, although pretty much all his recordings are worthwhile.

 


check out his playing here:

I second the Nguyên Lê recommendation. I've been planning to go buy The ACT Jubilee Concert double CD tomorrow because I know one of my local record stores has it, and it features Lê on a couple of tracks along with several other members from the ACT family.

 

Edit:

Here's a video of him performing live with Cæcilie Norby. He takes a solo halfway into the song.

Here's a brand new release that's sure to please almost everyone looking for first rate contemporary jazz:

 

 

Recommended!

 

Edit: Oops, forgot to mention that this recording DOES NOT sound anything like a Medeski, Martin & Wood recording.
