combination of  ancient Latin texts with modern music, for ECM fans
I think the problem with a lot of the fusion music is that it's extremely predictable, it's a rock rhythm and the solos all play the same stuff and they play it over and over again ...

3 favorite albums of the year for me so far...

















That shows you the power of music, that magician of magician, who lifts his wand, says his mysterious word and all things real pass away and the phantoms of your mind walk before you clothed in flesh.

my favourite 'Mozart Goes Dancing'

Well, I've went to see them live and they basically just presented the album (apart from two pieces off Native Sense to kick off, then, at the end, the beloved Armando's Rhumba) and I definitely thought the CD will turn out less rewarding and I'll even accuse it of being unoriginal (in an oh-why-are-they-not-working-on-something-new way) and standards-splashy. The Bud, the Brubeck and Jobim's Bossa sounded really great, so I guess they'll be my picks here as well. 


Generally I really like Chick Corea, he released more great albums than many expect, but some last years works are quite boring if not disappointing. "Hot House" is one between them for me. Corea was really adventurous quite a short time some decades ago, but he was able to play quality enjoyable music for years. His last few releases are mostly material for collectors - too often uninspired, repetitive and openly boring

The pre-RTF Corea was one of the most amazing pianists in any genre, something put out the fire, he's always a great player still, but it isn't the same.

Badbadnotgood - BBNG2

Sorry for insisting with this, but this new band is just one of the most interesting musical groups to appear in this century! Ok, many will think I'm exagerrating, but they really are offering something new and in a great way, and they're 21 years old!

Not only that, their music is free for download... I mean, what??

Keeny Garrett's "Seeds from the Underground" is Coltrane styled post bop with some Afro-Cuban rhythms and some wordless vocals as well.

Curtis Mayfield fans may want to check out hard bop covers of his tunes on Jazz Soul Seven's "Impressions of Curtis Mayfield". If you are a fan you will get the play on words.
