    Came across this by chance. Very nice interplay between vocal and guitar work.

    On the topic of Charlie Hunter, here's a recent one. Been mentioned in an earlier post, but I'll shamelessly repeat it here:

    Listened to a fantastic set by these guys at SFJAZZ yesterday, now listening to the album. Back to the late 60s-early 70s in the best funky way.

    Very nice. Saw on the other thread that the yggy gets it spot on in terms of making the performance sound just like it does in real life. It's like having them play in your home anytime you feel like. What a joy that is.

    A jazzy trip back to the 50s...

    Smooth new album released on Tidal. Worth a listen.

    Heard them play several of these live a while ago, refreshing my memory with the album. Not one of the crazy-dissonant-out-there albums I sometimes recommend, this is more mellow but always engaging and stepping out lightly from the beaten path. Ben Street on bass (I've been hearing him a lot live, most recently on an awesome live gig with Chris Potter, David Virelles, and Dan Weiss) weaves a subtle web between Parks's piano piano and Hart's drums. Delightful evening music.

    Just have to say that trumpeter Terell Staffords is dishing out old school jazz that’s upbeat and joyful and beams a melody like a wide smile.

    This is some of the best drums I've ever heard:

    Been traveling for almost one month, just catching up and getting some new jazz :) Here are three (relatively) recent releases not mentioned earlier here that I recommend:

    Flaga: The Book of Angels, volume 27: Craig Taborn (piano), Christian McBride (bass), Tyshawn Sorey (drums), great energy, drive, drags you along like wild horses. Taborn and Sorey have been on fire for the last several years.
    Verisimilitude: Tyshawn Sorey. Demands close listening, not your dinner jazz, closer to avantgarde classical for sure, austere, brilliant.
    Passin' Thru: Charles Lloyd New Quartet. Quintessential lyrical, meandering, earthy now, flying then Lloyd, with standout sidemen Jason Moran (piano), Reuben Rogers (bass), and Eric Harland (drums).

    Glad to see something new from Charles Lloyd. I'm becoming quite a fan recently.

    This Pres album is Great. The highlights for me are the slow tempo tunes, beautifully played.
