Forgot to listen to Lefto’s Think Outside the Kiosk radio show again when it was live earlier today. Luckily there’s Mixcloud!

Ahmad Jamal: Emerald City Nights: Live At The Penthouse, 1966-1968
Ahmad Jamal, his uncluttered allegiance to cool, underscored syncopation, and profound ease and understanding of Erroll Garner's orchestral maneuvers, rides high the groove on Emerald City Nights: Live At The Penthouse 1966-1968 and conclusively, both then and now, takes your mind off those, and these, turbulent times. #jazz
Scary Goldings And The Adam Deitch Quartet: Funky But Chic
Having learned to find and make a place for himself in the bands of George Duke and Miles Davis, John Scofield has gone on to perform similar magic with artists as disparate as Medeski Martin & Wood plus Phil Lesh. His latest affiliations once again find the guitarist/composer displaying his uncanny ability to sublimate himself in a group setting...

#NowPlaying: Yusuke Ogawa – Japanese Jazz Spectacle Vol. I (Deep, Heavy & Beautiful Jazz From Japan 1968-1984)
“Up A Step” by Hank Mobley (1964)
Solid hard bop album by tenor saxophonist #HankMobley, featuring on this track performances by Mobley, trumpeter Donald Byrd, Herbie Hancock on piano, bassist Butch Warren, and drummer Philly Joe Jones.
Sun Ra - Space is the Place,
the 2023 Verve By Request Third Man Pressing.
my first third man where quality control might have failed. some paper sticking in the vinyl between the run-outs. one minor tick, yet, ermm, not cool, for a €30+ product.
Nicht vergessen: "Pünktlich zum ersten Advent zündet die Fette Hupe mal wieder nicht nur die erste Kerze an, sondern brennt gleich ein ganzes musikalisches Feuerwerk in der Faust Warenannahme ab"

The refs have decided #Utah should win this one. Absurd calls in OT. Shaedon had a 3 turned into a 2 before OT. Then he got hit on the arms by one player and the head by another. No call. But they called him before that for an over-the-back on a defensive play by the ref furthest from the play, though the closest ones called it side out for #Portland. The #Jazz will win this one over the #TrailBlazers. It will look like a bigger margin than the 1-point win for #PDX that it should have been.

I'm deeply grateful to announce that I wrote an article that was just published today in Christ and Pop Culture magazine. If you are interested, you are welcome to read it here.
I love "Hopopono" so much...
Yuhan Su: Naked Swimmer
For Liberated Gesture, her fourth release, Taiwan-born, New York vibraphonist Yuhan Su assembled a band of saxophonist Caroline Davis, pianist Matt Mitchell, bassist Marty Kenney and drummer Dan Weiss, all of whom play at their usual exalted level. That's fast company, but Su holds her own, moving smoothly in and out of taut ensemble passages and soloing with the clarity and subtle color of tinted quartz. #jazz
Album Review: Geri Allen & Kurt Rosenwinkel: A Lovesome Thing
Geri Allen and Kurt Rosenwinkel had a duo date as part of the Jazz à la Villette festival in Paris in 2012... They had only played together a couple of times and this concert was the first and only time they played in a duo together. There was no rehearsal. Perhaps surprisingly, this was an evening when the stars aligned and the night was a complete success. #jazz
I need some suggestions of contemplative jazz albums to download for a week off the grid. #jazz

Jazztodon artist of the week: Michel Perez! From @aaj: "French guitarist #michelperez has the reputation of being a sincere and humble musician, a respected composer and a master of his instrument. He's not thinking like a guitar player, but more like a sax player and a pianist. Self-taught, he started playing at the Hot Club de Lyon alongside many touring greats. Michel was featured in the film "Round About Midnight." Perez has been performing under his name and has recorded six albums.
Look, the tight execution, sense of musical restraint and, of course, the lack of actual jamming means that "No Obsession" from @stereopolarity is *NOT* jam band music. That said, it features the same core fusion of jazz and funk, with just a touch of rock and some electronics, that powers nearly all jam bands -- and, to be completely honest, this tune would be fucking sick if it was jammed out to deep space and back.
Explore the world of blues poetry this weekend, via the vocal talents of Aja Monet, who's this week's performer in the Tiny Desk studio. She performs five pieces that NPR producer Nikki Birch says offer "gentle gut punches to the soul and psyche," accompanied by piano, sax and bass. "Lean in closer and absorb every word," says Birch. "She's got bars."
What I did last Friday night. Well there was another event in-between gigs which involved political discussion and the best part of a bottle of wine. But this was the rest of Friday evening!
I reviewed Alex Hitchcock's new CD for LondonJazzNews. An impressive work!
Hello everyone. For #BandCampFriday I'm sneaking in one last 2023 offering: a re-release of a Christmas song myself & my son Leon wrote in 2021, with a B-Side to follow on the 30th of December called Not a Love song.
Both have a jazzy, early-20th-century feel.
The inspiration for Persevere was finding a Christmas card from December 2019 that began "I hope next year is better for us..." and then...2020!
The Great Jazz Trio at the Village Vanguard, Vol. 2
Recorded during the same booking at the first, with what sound like the same mic setup. Different material, of course, but four strong tracks - and more great performances.
I know The Great Jazz Trio name was kind of a joke, but they are pretty great.
Humphrey Lyttelton, the #jazz musician and presenter of #ISIHAC, who died in 2008, used to have a nice personal website at humphreylyttelton.com. Something weird has happened to it recently: some of the old homepage text is still there, but merged with nonsense about scratch cards & an 'iGaming entrepreneur'. AI-generated spam presumably?
Anyway, it would be good if someone could edit his Wikipedia entry to change the website link to the Wayback Machine archive version https://web.archive.org/web/20080209212511/http://www.humphreylyttelton.com/
Rip Rig + Panic - God
Serendipity - you search for an album, and run into a group from 1981 you've never heard of. Which is weird, because Neneh Cherry is in it. So, hell, why not buy all three of their LPs used? They're not expensive, double-45-RPM LPs.
And, hey! Good stuff - percussion-forward, a bit tribal, definitely post-punk with a jazz sensibility. And while they're not trying to be abrasive, they're not NOT trying either.
Ramsey Lewis recorded & released an LP of White Album covers *less than a month* after the release of the Beatles' White Album and reached #4 in the Billboard Jazz Albums chart. And he didn't even like #TheBeatles.
It's like the whole of the 60s encapsulated in just one album. #Jazz, kitsch strings, soul-funk, teenybop, and he even introduced early electronics (Ramsey beat The Beatles to the Moog by a year). There's a dreamy montage quality about it as if mixed by a DJ. I love it
What’s Spotify? Anti-artist business model, worse than the record companies ever were 💀 Just pirate and buy the artist merch or vinyl
Anyway, my most played:
1. Tripped ⬆️ (from last year)
2. [KRTM] ⬇️
3. Soil & “Pimp” Sessions ⬆️
4. Neil Young ⬆️
5. Dominik Eulberg ⬇️
3. Discovering their full catalogue. High point: “Pimpoint”
4. After the Gold Rush, mainly
Wednesday goes so slow … but it is Music Women Wednesday, so here something to slow you down, give you some space before you go on –
Mary Lou Williams Quartet, "Yesterdays" (1954)
Ms Williams was an important influence on Tadd Dameron, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, and Bud Powell.
piano: Mary Lou Williams
bass: Ken Napper
drums: Tony Kinsey
bongos: Tony Scott
Thelonious Monk has been a constant in my life for well over 30 years. Always there in the good and bad times, just being Monk.
Here's a clip of the quartet from Japan 1963 being pretty wonderful. Charlie Rouse is so solid and Monk's dancing is well, very Monk. Worth a watch even if Jazz ain't your thing. It's happy music.
Grant Green - Live at Club Mozambique
Part of the 313 Third Man/Blue Note release series focusing on Detroit, this is definitely a fun set. Idris Muhammad lays down a funky groove, and Green is playing well, along with Clarence Thomas (no not that one) and Houston Person on sax, and Ronnie Foster on organ.
Very nice packaging. Pressing is very-good-not-great (straight black is likely better).
Hi #Mastodon Frens.
So I’ve been working with the legendary Mello Music Group to launch #multiinstrumental #producer #Elaquent’s new album, #REDISCOVERY. It’s a beautiful #HipHop project with elements of #jazz & #lofi throughout.
I’ve been working his single “Small Victories” featuring the talented Dom Chonicles. An encouraging & uplifting bop that’s been getting me through weird times.
The Great Jazz Trio - N.Y. Sophisticate
So, after the turntable-off, did I end up buying virtually all the Great Jazz Trio LPs I could find? Maaaayyyybeeee….
This is one of their lowest rated records (according to Allmusic, at least) and yes…the strings are a tad distracting on some tracks. But still great songs and playing.
(Note that I’ve listened to others that were also great but I neglected to post…I'll catch up eventually.)
Charles Unger and I trading horns for an afternoon: he was playing my horn (a Yamaha YAS-875EX alto), while he handed me his Selmer Mk VI tenor to play for a bit. He never lets anyone play his horn, he says, but he wanted me to have a go! It was... wonderful.
I so appreciate my afternoons with Charles. I learn so much from him.

John Coltrane - Greensleeves (Alternate Take)
I love the alternate take so much more than the main one, plus the Doxy version is chefskiss.gif as usual
#Jamulus track called 'The Ping is the Thing' which, when you're relying on having good ping between musicians to do absolutely anything, seems rather fitting.
What a nice soon-to-be thread! Thank you!
It's just coming up to 7am here in Ireland and the doggies are waiting to be fed, so I'm going to quickly share my LinkTree, which has links to my single Can't Catch Polly released this month (#Indie #Blues) and my EP Not the Sea, released earlier this year (#Folk #Jazz #FolkPop)
“I showed up the following Monday promptly at two to find the bar mostly empty and miraculously quiet.

Morning jog while listening to Herbie Hancock & The Headhunters live in 1975. James Brown is great and everything, but #funk in the hands of highly-accomplished #jazz musicians is a whole new level. It almost makes you giddy in parts.
Plus you get covers with giant cosmic fish, spirit dancers, cyclones and jazz dudes dressed as astronauts.
"In a restored and re-edited version of the 1960s jazz programme, Neneh Cherry introduces a session by trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie accompanied by Rudy Collins, Christopher White, Kenny Barren and James Moody."
"Dizzy Gillespie Quintet-(Jazz 625) 1966"
