Jazz Recommendations from this Century - Page 6

post #76 of 233

Yeah, their last album is the only one that I do not like but I think maybe I should go back and listen.  That's the optimist in me, otherwise I'll have to say it was not nearly as good as their other albums.  

EST, thank you for the suggestions, I have their From Gagarin's Point of View album.  Fantastic, I just haven't had a chance to go through their entire body of work yet.  I should though because I really enjoy the one I already have.

Anyway - while we're into this genre, Esbjörn Svensson Trio is of course a must for anyone to know

 

 

E.S.T   /    Esbjörn Svensson Trio

 

My favorite albums are Viaticum, Leucocyte, 7 days of falling if I had to pick any - but they're all great.

Couldn't agree more, I'll add this one to the list aswell because they are a remarkable live act. They have a very broad appeal, sometimes full on contemporary Jazz, sometimes Rock, Latin, easy listening..

Awesome weekend recommendations!! Really glad to see this thread still going strong - what a great way to keep up on contemporary favorites!!! I really enjoy E.S.T. and the little bit of Gustavssen I have. Eple Trio and Stanko are new to me though (thanks ardilla)....so more new candy for the ears :-)  Got 10 new albums loaded up on the mp3 player for the week at work - some are recommendations from this thread - so I'm hoping for a few new gems.

 

LugBug - congrats on the new baby....hope you can still find some time to enjoy music....and get some sleep!!!

Great thread and lots of great recommendations. Since i got my new head-fi setup I have been going back through my collection and hitting alot of jazz that i have not listened to in a long time.

 

Bill Frisell

Bob James

Mingus

Jeff Lorber

Gary Burton

It is so great rediscovering music you already have and new music you did not know was out there.

 

Currently listnening to Jane Monheit - Home (very nice, smooth voice), moving on to Neil Cowley Trio next

There's a fantastic live recording from last January by pianists Jason Moran and Robert Glasper in a double trio format…Moran is on keyboards; Glasper piano…it's called 713-->212: Houstonians in NYC. Here's the link…

Whoa!

Big plus ONE for Jane Monheit's "Home" CD.

In addition, "The Lovers, The Dreamers and Me" from Jane is worth a listen.

LugBug - just playing this for the first time this morning (about half way through). So far, so good....on par with many of the piano trios that have been mentioned so far. Definitely plan on giving this some more dedicated listenings!
 

GouldPhoto - hahaha....I know exactly what you mean! My new Sennheiser HD600 came in last night - I was like the proverbial kid in the candy store; couldn't decide what to listen to so I was just grabbing favorite tracks and lining them up in the queue. Then it got later and later and was past my normal bedtime and I actually thought to myself, "but self, can't I stay up just a little while longer?"

 

tru blu - thanks for the link!! I will definitely be checking that out later this morning - I'm a HUGE Moran fan.

Adding in Cheryl Bentyne, first heard her as a member of The Manhantan Transfer.

Listening to her album Talk of the Town now, light jazz/vocals.
