Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers - "Moanin'"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4noNAphDFA8

A short clip of Blakey's classic line up from 1962. It's a great clip, too bad it's not longer.

Here is a longer clip of Blakey in 1989 playing a great arrangement of the same tune, in celebration of his 70th birthday:

Part 1 -
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Udn8YeR40I

Part 2 -
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZ1QFF3lF7I

And for the hell of it, here is a killin' version of Jimmy Smith doing it on the Hammond:

Jazz is really good stuff. I might look for some links when I get a chance. It's been awhile since I've listened though. I remember this one group called "Kilauea" that has some good hits I liked. I'm a big electronic fan too, and it isn't uncommon for me to listen hybrids. I was listening to some good electro jazz today: Good stuff.

Ok, I'm in love with this forum now.

I'm a Jazz freak.
Mostly Hard Bop.
Love Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, Lennie Tristano and so many more.

But less on vintage Jazz... is anybody here a fan of the contemporary Jazz king, John Zorn?
I am such a huge fan of his work.
Naked City. <3

right on!

I dig Zorn a lot... I used to have a recording of the John Zorn Masada Alef album back in college. Very cool, innovative stuff! I haven't heard it in years though... you ever get down with any Arthur Blythe or James Blood Ulmer?

Masada is great too! Bar Kokhba is a masterpiece!
Though Naked City will forever be my favorite Zorn group.
That guy has such a creative mind. I love how he can write such lovely music then go all wild and write something like Six Litanies For Heliogabalus that's like heavier than any Metal I've heard.

I haven't heard the two you mentioned though, I'll be sure to check them out!

He's got a great sound, and he plays the hell outa that horn! Anyone else into him?

I'm definitely a jazz lover at heart. I've had the chance to meet some amazing jazz artists throughout the years, and also played with a couple.

No, he teaches at Wesleyan and I play the guitar. He's a really...interesting teacher to say the least. His whole approach to the study of music is so different than anything most people ever get a chance to study and one can't help but be overtaken by his genius.

Yes, he is very impressive... especially considering how young he is. He plays like a man with decades of experience.

Um, he was born in '45. You're talking about Anthony Braxton, right?

No sir, we were talking about trumpeter Christian Scott... one of the new young lions out there today (see my post just a few back.)

I first heard of him when a good drummer friend of mine got a gig doing some tour dates with him. Since that time it seems like I keep running into his name everywhere, and every track I've heard from him has been bangin'! I don't have his CD, but I am thinking that I may have add that to my X-Mas list.

Something I read recently, apparently he is the nephew of saxophonist Donald Harrison Jr. Far out!

Props on the Braxton pic, Santa. Good to see the man is still kickin' it!

Default Dewey Redman Revisited

Heard this on NPR Fresh Air


http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...oryId=16735541

Dewey Redman is Joshua Redman's Father.

Formerly long out-of-print, The Struggle Continues became a cult classic of many jazz record collectors.

This is a great reissue!!

That is a great re-issue.... I hadn't even heard about Dewey's passing until now. Glad we have such a great work to remember him by!

Thanks for the info, Will.

*bump-ditty-bump-da-bump-da-bump-POW!*

Gonna try one last time revive my little jazz thread here before I give up and just let it die a dignified and jazzified death.

Some stuff I've been listening to lately: a recent release by pianist Cyrus Chestnut called Cyrus Plays Elvis. The title is self explanatory, and there are some lovely modern-jazz renditions of the deceased rock and roller's most memorable numbers on here, exquisitely executed by Chestnut's magnificent trio. One highlight in particular I am especially fond of is his version of Love Me Tender (or Aura Lee as it was previously known.) Cyrus takes this beautiful, timeless melody and transforms it into something ethereal with clever reharmonization and swinging jazz-waltz feel.

Check it out:

Also, a rediscovery of an old favorite: clarinetist Eddie Daniels recorded a song back in the 80's called Dreaming which has long been a personal favorite of mine. I haven't heard it in years, but just recently downloaded The Eddie Daniels Collection off of iTunes. It is really wonderful to hear this beautiful melody once again. If you are at all a fan of jazz clarinet I highly recommend it.

Oh my gosh, yes... "Central Park West" is a beautiful ballad from Trane, one of my personal favorites from him. One of a number of tunes he based around the II-V-I changes found in "Giant Steps." Great tune, mejix... thanks for posting!
