    Good call. This is from last year and while it doesn't quite reach the level the Sleepwalker does, there's some fierce playing on it

    Especially "Folklore"

    I have been digging the saxophone summit tribute to Coltrane recordings too (Michael Brecker, David Liebman and Joe Lovano w/cecil mcbee on bass and billy hart on drums)

    Some people think their sound is too repetitive and jammy, but I think these guys play pretty heavy for a couple of jazzcats. I've seen them live as well and they got some serious tightness going on. You can hear that they have played as a unit together for 15 years now. That's a pretty long time for any band. All three of them got their instruments locked down like Fort Knox.

    yoooooooo Brian Blade is the fucking G on drums. i saw him live and dude had grown women hollerin his name during his 5 minute drum solo, not even joking.
    blade is for real. saw him play with bobby hutchinson and others for this Ornette tribute thing. he made "lonely woman" bang. he's got the "hip drummer" look on lock as well (shades, etc). plus how sweet is his name?! brian fucking BLADE?!?!

    I agree. I've seen them three times. The last time I seen them I think was in 2001, when they would play each city and have Skerik look for local musicians to play in the horn section. The idea behind each show was that you were entering their "shack" and it felt like you were looking into a jam session. The tour they were on for The Dropper[/b] was sick, where the Karl Denson Tiny Universe opened up. But Medeski surfed his Hammond on that one when I saw MMW in Seattle in 2001 or so.

    Yes, blade is my favorite drummer alive today. I was at that show too! up at the van duzer...
    great band w/josh redman, renee rosnes, brian blade, nicolas payton etc..
    in fact, their CD "SF jazz collective LIVE" is really great.
    Some nice alto work by miguel zenon.

    ALSO:
    Kenny Garrett
    Steve Coleman
    Von Freeman
    paul contos

    are killing it on the saxophone tip.

    Are these guys really good, or really bad, because the reviews I've read have been either or.

    Another good one. With that said, a few more to add:






  • AserAser 2,351 Posts
    Soil & Pimp actually already have 2 albums out.........both are pretty good. Also Sleepwalker has had a bunch of tracks on jpn only compilations like "The Room 10th Anniversary" and Kyoto Jazz Massive's "RE KJM", seek those out.

    In a similar vein, try Five Corners Quartet out of Finland I think.......they've put a few 10"s out on the Ricky Tick label.



  • That Avishi Cohen is a solid record.





    worthwhile listens:



    The Vandermark 5 "Burn The Incline"

    Faruq Z. Bey w/ Northwoods Improvisers "19 Moons"

    Fertile Ground "Spiritual Warfare"

    Ahmed Abdullah's Dispersions of the Spirit of Ra "Traveling the Spaceways"

    Sex Mob "Solid Sender"

    Hakim Jami "Revealing"





    SONIC

    Nothing wrong with yesterday's new quintet.
    It definatly ain't the calibre of musicianship of that brain blade or that brad meldhau, but it's nice nonetheless.

    Pharaoh sanders has been putting out quality for a while...ALSO:
    BILL FRISELL
    DON BYRON
    JOHN ZORN
    JOHN MCLAUGHLIN
    and WAYNE SHORTER

    have continued to put out good albums into the 90's, among others
