"Danny Boy" is the sore thumb in many a jazz record, not sure why though.

Horses for courses, John. It's like Peter Paul and Mary doing The Beatles "Revolution" . keep "Danny Boy" for the Folk.

Yes, Slava he is. Also a member of Einsturzende Neubauten ( German Avante Industrial). He released an album with Teho Teardo last year "Still Smiling". It was my favourite album last year. Played it heaps. Most original thing I heard actually. "Mimikry" above is good as well but not as much or accessible as "Still Smiling". It takes a few listens to really get in to. Smile

Acoustic guitar album by a Facebook friend of mine. I first heard and met Sergio through Lucas' Prog radio program on ISKC Rock Radio. I still like to hear what is new and Lucas does provide plenty of that. Sergio's music I love to hear when I first get up in the morning as he often puts up tracks on FB and he has a gentle, slight Bluesy approach with plenty of space between chords and I find it a nice lovely quiet way to start or end my day. Mainly solo acoustic with  some vocals , Bouzouki and Bandeneon ( track, "Non Ti Crucciar" has that Italian Influence with Bandeneon), one a piece. He is  is a wonderful guitarist. Wouldn't have bought it if he wasn't

I love this album. First time I heard it I played bits at a cd store. Did not buy and instead I think bought a Christian McBride album instead. No offence to Christian but Henry's music must of hit the sub conscience or something because I regretted it the same night for not taking a shot at the album. Had to wait a few weeks to get it as the shop sold their only copy when I went back..................

African music was the worst for me, John. The shop would get one or two albums of the artist and they would go quickly and when they placed another order with Sterns, yep, out of stock. Usually Al at the shop would only place an order every three months due more to the exchange rate as it was killer with English pounds back then.

Julee Cruise is the singer from "Twin Peaks" Soundtrack. This album has the lyrics from David Lynch with Angelo Badalamenti writing the music as well as playing Synth and piano on the album. One of those low key, heading into Ambient albums. Could be deadly boring but the tracks are a bit of a mix with tempos, instruments and a slight Avante touch here and there, keeps it all nice and focused. Around 89 to 90 is the release date. Cannot read the date on the record cover clearly Cool I am not cool but blind.

Forever and ever
We will be able to fly
We will drink honeyed wine

Yes Slava, very nice, Great review with the new Stanko. Sounds good.

Paradise

He has included strings in parts in this album. It has had great reviews. The compositions by Tom are A Grade, his trumpet and band are magic.............................Even though he wrote the album for strings, it is the tracks without I love (harp only with band). The strings enter sometimes and ............ I am not a big fan of Orchestral style Strings in Jazz with Bop esp. I don't often play the Gil Evans albums ( Miles Davis) also own a Dizzy Gillespie "Perceptions" and an "Art Farmer...with Strings" ohhhhh pull my teeth instead. Still Terence Blanchard's "Jazz In Film" and Charlie Parker's is an exception. My personal taste.

[/QUOTE]Yes Slava, very nice, Great review with the new Stanko. Sounds good. [/QUOTE]


thanks Embarrassed

this new Stanko album revitalize my interest to his music

I've seen him life ten years ago at MOL Jazz Fest in Budapest - it was a "German style" open air event not too far from city's center,but in industrial are close to Danube's(Dunau) coast, long but not wide peace of old parking with railroad warehouses around. With long tables and people walking around during concert,eating roasted dark bread with garlic and drinking bear from plastic cups Confused

Concert opener was Esperanza Spalding, still rising new talent (she will receive Grammy some month later). So - even in this freaky (for his music) environment Stanko sounded excellent, kind of alien  - his trumpet soloing flow over these eaters and drinkers...

I like his very early avant-garde albums and some pre-ECM fusion albums (he did it great!), but only smaller part of ECM releases stick with me: too often he's too melancholic,too lifeless and too chamber(read - non-jazzy) there.  Or - just boringEmbarrassed

anyway - started to re-listen his albums, probably will come with more reviews

I know you have a lot of his music as well Wink

"Synthesizers in Space", Shawn Lee mixes exotica with psychedelic rock for good effect, the music is not as cheezy as the title would suggest.

Outtakes from their last album "Still Smiling", John. It came out for record day or vinyl day, (whatever they call it) last year. Has two versions of "Crimson and Clover" one German, one English, plus three of their own songs. Pretty good for Outtakes. "Crimson and Clover" is okay but the others are better.

You all may laugh but it taught me quite a few Standards that I did not know back then, between Pink Floyd and Bruce Springsteen in the old car. lol

^ I've been checking it out, thats really nice music. I hear the Afro Cuban influence, but I would tag that album as World Fusion due to the other styles present, even garage rock, ha.
His comp albums called Serie Sangomar Vol 1 and 2 are more straight up Afro Cuban, and will be tagged that way, eventually.
