That doesn't mean it's not music. That just means you don't like it.
Well, alotta times its just rapid fire running of scales in various modes and, no isnt really music, IMO. Flurries of notes should used within an entire musically developed solo, fitting into, hopefully, the lyricism of it, intermixed with space and syncopation. Just ripping of notes doesnt mean anything to me and there are a ton of players that do that. Its fatiguing to the ear.

Of course, the video runs out - they probably went on for at least another 30 minutes
William Parker - bass, Cooper Moore - piano
Hamid Drake - drums, Daniel Carter - everything

Aaaand... these are my other guys all together - Guillermo E. Brown has a lot of albums out there with his own trio. I used to be quite enamored of Matthew Shipp - still am - he really wraps his head around it.



I wish this was live like the other one - I'll see if I can dig up something live.
David S. Ware - tenor sax, Matthew Shipp - piano
William Parker - bass, Guillermo E. Brown - drums

Glad to see someone else likes this kind of stuff. I've got a bunch of it in my CD collection, including just about everything by Ware, and a good chunk of Parker. Another favorite of mine is Cecil Taylor. He's hard to represent with just a short youtube video, but here's a sample. I'm not even sure he plays jazz, but whatever it is, I find it mesmerizing. I wouldn't be surprised if he was an inspiration for Matthew Shipp.



I LIKE CT ALOT! He's his own man in his music. Stretches your brain.

I don't know, "Mediterranean Sundance" doesn't lose any musicality to my ears, despite being notey. You're right, that can happen -- and DiMeola is guilty of it in several places on that album and others. But there are plenty of notey guitarists who are incredibly melodic -- Eric Johnson and Joe Satriani spring to mind immediately.

But back to jazz -- I could listen to Carmen sing all night long:



DiMeola was kind of, uh, an asshole of sorts, and thats cool, but sometimes his music suffers because he just wanted to show off or something. Im not familiar with those other 2 guys.

C McCrae is on my top 5 or 10 jazz vocalists list, i love her, shes kinda raspy and real. A friend of mine, who was a guitar virtuoso from my hometown of Omaha, Billy Rogers, toured with her in the 70s--and the Jazz Crusaders and others. I was lucky to get to do some gigs with him. He was funny as hell, too. He died of heroine @ age 37 or so. Guy was one of the best players in the country, he was ridiculous.




Billy on left, Dave Stryker on right, another Omaha jazz guy I played with, but hes made a name for himself in NYC. Check him out.

New documentary coming in 2018 based on the 2002 book Satchmo Blows Up the World https://www.amazon.com/Satchmo-Blows-Up-...0674022602 by Hugo Berkeley http://americanhistory.si.edu/events#/?i=6http://americanhistory.si.edu/events#/?i=6

"At the height of the ideological antagonism of the Cold War, the U.S. State Department unleashed an unexpected tool in its battle against Communism: jazz. From 1956 through the late 1970s, America dispatched its finest jazz musicians to the far corners of the earth, from Iraq to India, from the Congo to the Soviet Union, in order to win the hearts and minds of the Third World and to counter perceptions of American racism.”

But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Theme from the Amazon show Bosch based on the Michael Connelly detective. The character is into improvisational jazz and the soundtrack is fantastic, as is the show. Wink

That all sounds very "un-Murican" as I have never heard of any of that. Then again, I don't pay much attention to Murica anymore.
