I’ve liked this guy for a long time now. He has great dynamics. His brother Chris Minh Doky is no slouch, either.

This is EXQUISITE stuff. A friend of mine who has been composition studying with Florian Ross turned me on to him a couple of years ago. Even if you want to skip the promo videos, please don't miss the Opening Chorale video. In some of his electric stuff, FR arranged music that combines EP and synth with rhythm section, clarinet and pedal steel - a brilliant combination!

Listening to Scarlatti, played by fellow citizen Andrés Alberto Gómez, directly from the CD bought in the presentation event, always with better sound.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_ldct2ToyoCn-_e52FiaV1bkZbsm6xnpwk

After buying and playing all the 555 music sheets of Scarlatti sonatas, he choose those 17 from the best of them that were lessen known. The Preludio is his own composition.

My latest processing settings on some best of pop CD tracks, a little (I think fair use) example "Every Time I Think of You":

rollexa3.mp3 30secs 1.1MB 44.1

just like those CD example pieces on amazon, this is compressed (the processing creates 96kHz/24bit) and very short.

It's unpleasant for me to just put CDs on, pretty soon, but now, it is a pleasure again, and gets better.

Just heard this album the first time this week:


Charlie Mariano: Helen 12 Trees, recorded 1976. What a freaking great band on this, post-Mahavishnu and Pre-Miami Vice Jan Hammer on Rhodes and Minimoog, Jack Bruce on bass(!) and Soft Machine's John Marshall on drums. Being a huge fan of both Hammer and Bruce, I'm kinda amazed I'd never heard this album until now. It's pretty ripping jazz-rock with a bit of Indian Classsical influence. Great stuff!

Damn, that is exquisite indeed, the clarinet/pedal steel frontline is just brilliant! Thanks for sharing this!

My listening goes all over the place so over the last day or two...

Brad Mehldau solo album Elegiac Cycle.
Watched Joe Zawinul DVD 75.
Some classical piano Yuja Wang playing Bartok and another with a percussion ensemble.
Last night was checking out some Fred Hersch.

Just picked Stefon Harris CD Blackout and want to spend some time listening to that.

Been listening to the Cars. I really liked that group during the late seventies and eighties. I tried to get a glimpse of Greg Hawkes changing KB rig on MTV videos back then, he switched out a lot of gear.

Here's their 2018 RR Hall of fame induction. Of course, one missing original member that passed away. Ben Orr, he died at age 53.

I have my Alexa stream piano music all night and about 5am I heard this really cool Blues playing that got me to wake up enough to listen. It is early Kenny Barron playing tune called Wazuri Blues.

Most of Brad Mehldau's new album "Finding Gabriel" is up on Youtube and have been listening to a lot of the tracks. Not you usually Mehldau fair, but still interesting lots of synth, voices, and indie sounding to me (hey I'm an old guy I don't know the right genre to label it). I find it very interesting.

Brad Mehldau - Finding Gabriel



Not really a fan either but as I've always posted- I highly respect his piano playing and artistry.

I've listened to the entire record and while it's not my thing, this particular track stands out to me. Very powerful - both musically and visually- with a scorching solo by Joel Frahm.

There are two videos up - one released by the record company, Nonesuch, that will stir the political controversy, and one by Brad's youtube page, with just the music and dialogue sans the video

The Nonesuch video. Echos of Charles Mingus, Max Roach/Abby Lincoln protest Jazz.



And just the music/dialogue

Alabama 3 (or A3 in the US) Exile on Coldharbour Lane is a remarkable audio journey. Country Acid House is how they describe their music and this cut shows all those flavors. The lyrics reference the 808, 303, and sweet 909. The Sopranos "Woke Up This Morning" is on this album as is a great John Prine cover, "Speed of the Sound of Loneliness." I just read that their lead singer and co-founder, Jake Black a.k.a The Very Reverend D. Wayne Love, passed today. Now he don't dans 2 tekno anymore. Godspeed, Reverend.
