I remember preferring one over the other, just can't remember which is which. GuestApr 21, A Bit Byasd - Lew Tabackin - Desert Lady (CD, Location: Cherry Hill, NJ. Sweet Thunder is a good one, Kiwi. It's the same band as on his recent CIMP release. Kurt AndersonApr 23, Still live thread Just got back and can't believe this thread is still alive.
As much as I enjoy both Dave Douglas and his efforts at paying homage to Miles, his latest falls a tad short for me. It's more innovative with each listening. Still "new" - can't figure out why I love Lynne Arriale's stuff so much, but am impressed with her "Arise" album. Pulled out some older stuff I've not heard in a long time, and am amazed home well the New Directions disc still holds up. Best live music I've heard in the last couple of months has got to be Charlie Haden and Gonzalo Rubalcaba and their "Nocturne" concert -- which might have been too much with 90 minutes of ballads but for the always intriguing tenor of Joe Lovano.
JIMFApr 23, Location: West Hartford, CT. I enjoyed it, but on the initial listen I think the previous disc, Acoustic Machine made more favorable an initial impression on me. I am going to have to listen to Airports again soon. Any thoughts on the Rollins bonus disc? Reyles, What is the bonus disc you're talking about? I tried to order the 2-disc edition of the Vandermark CD from Drimala, but they sold out. Apparently, it's mostly a special item for sale at concerts.
It's been a pretty jazz-intensive weekend for me. It was a capacity crowd, who reacted with such enthusiasm at the end that Brotz A very soft spoken gentleman, his ferocious sound notwithstanding seemed genuinely touched, and played an unexpected encore. If you haven't heard the Oles brothers, then consider your coat pulled - this is a rhythm section that would bring smiles to the likes of Drake and Parker. Great music in the Sonny Rollins tradition - better than Vandermark's take, even!
Kurt AndersonMay 5, Since this thread is supposed to be about recent listening I decided to reactivate it instead of starting a new thread. Yesterday I listened to two discs that board members may appreciate.
The first is J. Monterose's In Action with the Joe Abodeely trio. Intervallic for sure, but not to the degree of Bennie wallace, whom I also like but sometimes can't quite 'follow'.
Not that I'm surprised that I can't always follow him, but Lew's playing has really grabbed me these last few weeks. Wish I'd checked him out sooner. As above, plus Don Byas, Chu Berry, plenty more. And, actually, tons of 50s era Sonny Rollins. In fact, in the 70s Tabackin was considered by folks like Leonard Feather to be primarily out of Newk's bag. He had a marvelous trio release on the long-defunct Inner City label that really highlighted the Rollins influence -- and I think his mastery of the cadenza stems in part from Sonny's approach as well though I think Tabackin has taken unaccompanied playing to a whole 'nother, downright untouchable, level And, something pretty unusual for a modern tenor player, which Lew undoubtably is: not one Coltrane molecule is to be found in his playing Great player indeed.
I've seen him with the big band and also a long ago trio gig at the Keystone Korner. He was smokin and ran through a wide palette of sytles all of which sounded natural and true to him. Lots of feeling, lots of chops and lots of history in his playing.
Honk - You and I have discussed Lew Tabackin before and are in full agreement. In addition to Hawkins, I also hear some Ben Webster in the way Tabackin uses both the growl and subtone in his playing. It is the final cut Album) the CD and is the most astonishing display of solo tenor playing that I have ever heard. Also Tanukis Night Out is a good one.
Its a trio recording done in Japan with a great version of "Rhythm-a-Ning" as well as a "Body and Soul" that jaw-droppingly good on it. Absolutely - on the Ellis Marsalis show, Lew plays an introductory cadenza on 3 tracks I am floored by it He's phenomenal on "Step Right Up" from that record!
