I can dig it. Did you post that in another thread about jazz? Seems familiar. I got some Eric Dolphy and some Sam Rivers coming up.

Dolphy and Rivers I can usually get behind, Kenny not so much. Had this Dave Holland on earlier https://youtu.be/wA8tzw-FsjU?list=OLAK5uy_mNcGqr5FFZS3HKKqhJ1M8MCZadusK6GL4 and now playing Jon Hassell-Last Night the Moon Came

I have this vinyl LP I picked up at goodwill quite a few years back and every time I listen I'm blown away. The version of Take Five on here is wild. They go hard on a song that doesn't really go hard. Also the story of the riots at the 1971 Newport Jazz fest that followed this set are pretty interesting. Dave Brubeck - Last Set at Newport https://youtu.be/ccm1rKmsXR4?si=ddPngizOawvKgz2e

I actually saw Brubeck once before he died. It was a free show in the park in New Haven. It was wonderful. I saw Les Paul at his residency at the Iridium in NYC in like 06 maybe. That was nice too.

i had a friend who was a jazz drummer. he started out as a punk rock drummer but then got all nerdy and started taking jazz lessons. that's the guy who kinda got me into jazz. i remember he told me all jazz people hate when Take Five is requested. it's like the free bird of jazz

Maybe. But both of them are still good songs.

B__DAWG 56 days ago
