Some modern jazz/fusion

 

post #287 of 814

Just "discovered" this little gem of a CD by the German drummer Wolfgang Haffner. It's a live trio recording from 2008 featuring some very playing on the ACT label.

Listening to this one last night with my new RS1is. Definitely in my top 5 for bop-style jazz. One of the best live recordings I've ever heard. Certainly worth a listen.

 

PS. If you can't see it, this is Sonny Rollins' There Will Never Be Another You

Al Dimeola's "Consequences of Chaos" is a more recent (2006) and very good Dimeola release.  I love it!  Check it out.

Thanks. Just listened to 'Red Moon' on youtube, it's pretty good with Chic Corea, Steve Gadd, Barry Miles and others.

Its a Jazzy sound mixed with a little funk but I absolutely love this track, Though it is Japanese  so yeah. Still great.

I guess this still counts as Jazz.
It's such a shame that their CDs are so bloody expensive over here in Europe...

I absolutely love this song.

Thanks for that. I will have to add this to my wish list and grab a copy the next time I place an Amazon Japan order (just made one on Monday, bummer).

 

Edit: Oh and this is definitely jazz. :wink_face: The jazz is strong with this one.

I already own three of their albums and paid around $130 for them...totally worth it though!

It really is IMO. Heard some people call it Ska but I think it is way more than that.

For those of you don't read Japanese the group is called Shibusashirazu or Shibusashirazu Orchestra and they are a free jazz ensemble. The above song is from their 2003 recording Shibuboshi. Here are links to their Wikipedia and Musicbrainz pages:

And here I was holding back on the free jazz recommendations for fear that most people would just be scared away. Great post!

I would sell my soul to see them live one day...I already managed to get my hands on Shibu-Hata and Shibu-Yotabi. Importing them from Japan is no fun at all :/

I like this kind of Free Jazz but other albums are just.....no thanks.

That stuff is too "free" for me :|

Wow. Amazon Japan sells that particular CD for a total of €29 (~€20 for the CD, ~€10 for shipping) shipped to Finland with AmazonGlobal Priority Shipping, which comes to your door typically in less than a week via DHL. Ordering more than one CD at a time doesn't (typically) make the shipping cost jump all that much, but at some point the import fees jump into picture if you order too much. As long as you're happy though that is all that matters. Up till a couple years ago I used to pay ridiculous prices for Japanese imports myself, so I know what it's like having esoteric tastes and having to pay for it. I've paid close to a hundred euros for a single album a couple times in my life. My wallet wept, but it was more than worth it in all cases. Now I try to order things directly myself whenever possible to be able to buy more music with the same amount of money.

 

I'd perhaps label that particular track free jazz big band; something I've never listened to before.

Excuse me? Since when does Amazon Japan ship items worldwide? I always thought you need one of these Proxy agent things?
