as for so many musicians i’ve taken a shine to, dime was my introduction to ambrose akinmusire.  the line up is what his website calls his “extraordinary working quintet”.  websites are so prone to hyperbole, but this is a fantastic group, and trumpet, sax & piano is wonderful & versatile combination.  these fm recordings from sunside are generally excellent, and this is no exception, including minimal dj voice-over (often a problem with french radio).

looking forward to hearing more from ambrose akinmusire et al.

here’s a nice show by a piano trio from poland, that i was listening to the other day.  i’ve been kind of “off” piano trios for a while.  but… having liked it enough to copy it to my (still trusty) usb drive for the trip, i thought why not upload it while i have a few minutes?  this was u/l’ed by ‘ealfons’ in may 2012.

well, this finishes (?) an unintentional run of shows from duc des lombards in paris.  this show by makaya mccraven is a little different than the last two postings here, more improvisational.  and having marquis hill on trumpet is a real plus.  see also this posting of a marquis hill show with makaya mccraven on drums, a nice counterpoint to this show.

the new york times had a good review of a makaya mccraven show (from a few months earlier, with a slightly different lineup) that touches on some of his techniques, and this show has a few comments on the same (just before a great cover of miles davis’ shivad from “live evil”).

‘elgaucho’ shared this on dime a couple of days after the show was broadcast.

in madrid for a few days, i was lucky enough to catch the kenny garrett quintet at clamores jazz.  i’ve not been to clamores before — actually, i associate it more with clubbing (which they still do there, starting late & ending early, natch!) — but i quite liked the place.  i was a bit taken aback at 9pm to find myself just about the last person in the door for what turned out to be a 10pm show; i’ll be there earlier next time, and dinner be damned.  anyway, it was a great show though all i had to record with was an android phone (no it’s not really listenable, thanks for asking).  sometimes, k.g. reminded me of a younger pharoah sanders; googling today, i see that’s not just me (1) (2).  pharoah sanders was one of my favorite musicians at one point (and i’ll always have a soft spot for his music), so that added a bit of a kick to the show.  (i’ve only seen p.s. once, at the cork jazzfest a bit over a decade ago.)  the music in the last half hour didn’t really do it for me, though i must say kenny garrett knows how to get people up out of their seats — the energy when he switched from jazz to (i’m not sure what) kept me there.  and a long show, too:  i left after 2 hours, and they were still at it.

bottom line:  liked clamores, loved kenny garrett.  i’ll be back, and hope k.g. will as well.
