Hey!

Guitarist I've been listening to lately:

Lage Lund, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Scott Hesse, Ben Monder and Mike Moreno

Took me a while to get used to Lage Lund, but really starting to dig his stuff now. Kurt is still my current favourite, although Monder's version of I Remember April is right up there too.

Lovely music!

What have yo been bathing your ears in?

today i listened to a samba collection (the hard-core street stuff of rio carneval), and idle moments.

earlier in the week i listened to the two-disc 'best of dexter gordon on blue note'; bud powell, parisian thoroughfare, which has belgian rene thomas featured on bird's buzzy, taken at about 138 the half note; the real mccoy, which i'm not sure i'll ever 'get'...zoot sims 'the gershwin brothers', with joe pass & oscar peterson...

I bought these four albums lately and threw them on the IPOD.

http://www.amazon.com/Unlikely-Stories-Lage-Lund-Quartet/dp/B002ZXZJK6

Nice music..very creative although at times it comes off a little bland...seems like I have to be in the mood for it..which really makes sense. Overwhelming ability on the guitar. I dont know if I have ever heard anyone play so effortlessly and his sound is really beautiful IMO.

Kreisberg really appeals to me. I love everything about the guys approach..even the little recurring licks that crop up..great album...his version of relaxin at camarillo is sweet

'Nuff said here'
2nd time around for his purchase of a desert island recording

http://www.amazon.com/Ultrahang-Chris-Potter/dp/B002CSNRQ2

This recording was a roll of the dice and quite a departure for me taste wise...and I cant say enough about it. I am really diggin this thing even though it took me a while.

I listen to music mostly when I go running along the lakefront where I live and these are on my playlist right now...very cool and inspiring music that I can recommend.

Most this stuff is probably old news to most but it takes me a while to discover things!! Embarassed

Great links Gene Cool . I also listen to music when I run, although I do so on my treadmill since my knees can't take the pavement any more.

I just bought a Sonny Stitt CD entitled "Just In Case You Forgot How Bad He Really Was". It was recorded less than a year before he died and also has Richie Cole and John Handy playing on it. I've always loved Sonny's playing and regret I passed up the opportunity to see him live right around that same time. I figured I'd catch him the next time he came to town...Crying or Very sad

I've also been listening to Julian Lage a bit lately. Incredible player. Just got the "Gladwell" CD.

Would you recommend Gladwell Paul??

Sometimes with those heavier players and modern compositions I feel like I am listening in on a conversation that is beyound my comprehension...even though the voices are pleasing to listen too Embarassed Rolling Eyes

Sonny Stitt was a monster...and you know I have not listened to his playing for I'll bet at least 15 yrs...BACK TO THE ARCHIVES!!!! Wink

Its as hot as stink here on this side of the great lakes btw... I am cowering in my basement like an animal Crying or Very sad

Tim Miller- he's got all the fingerboard mastery and chordal cool of Berklee, but managed to sound modern and have a distinctive sound of his own.

Ed Bickert- never cease to amaze me how much this guy swings. Not bad for a Canadian, eh? "Pure Desmond" is just full of beautiful jazz lyricism, "I wished On The Moon" has the same impact too.

James Carter- every he does it seems like he's pushing himself to the next level, never plays it safe and exploring all possibilities of the sax.

Tung, which Tim Miller recordings do you have? Right now I just have trio vol 2, I think it's great.

I guess I'm not listening too much. My fav guitarist these days is Adam Rogers. The last CD I really liked was Vince Mendozas. I like Donny McGaslin and Chris Potter.

That's the one I have as well. I tend to buy selected songs off Itunes these days, so i may not have the complete CD.
FWIW I think none of his CDs really done him justice on how he sounds live, he tends to go for it a lot more. Almost all his Youtube vids have great solos.

Adam Rogers is just flawless with the sound and technique. He certainly has his bebop and cuts changes effortlessly. I love how he plays "Cheryl" and "Bobo"

Yeah I thought that was pretty slick too.

I just read on the net today that Luc and bass player Alain Caron did a duet concert in Montreal recently that I missed...damn!!!
That wouldve been sweet.

Montreal is a bit of a drive for me but a great city full of all kinds of fun !
