Bookmark and Share ’cuong vu trio meets pat metheny’ . . . . i fear that this record is getting ’lost in the shuffle’ . . . . it’s surely and purely an incredible musical & spiritual experience, and i just wanted to give it a ’shout-out’. nobody seems to be talking about it that much, and as we all know, even without pat’s glorious participation, cuong & his guys are, and have been for quite a spell, blazing new trails on a daily basis. ~ have also been revisiting the ’light as a feather’ record by chick corea and the first incarnation of the ’return to forever’ aggregation. what game shall we play today, indeed!

Bookmark and Share molesoulsandal--I think I was familiar with this album back in the day when I did some late night record spinning at an NPR station. Back when you could really mix it up. I’ll have to check it out again on itunes. I think I got Eddie into my bloodstream in a big way listening to the Steps Ahead (album) back in 1983-84. My musical vocabulary isn’t very good but I think his playing in unison (say, with the piano bass line) during certain parts of songs and then going in unpredictable directions has a dramatic effect that I really like. He vastly opens up the writing possibilities for everyone he plays with. The guy is a true original and there’s never any doubt who is playing when you hear him!

Bookmark and Share there’s a wonderfully transcendent album by the pianist/composer mike nock, on ECM, from 1981 called ’ondas’, which is a trio format featuring drummer john christensen and the terrific eddie gomez on bass. this might be the greatest record that nobody’s ever heard - laugh out loud! at any rate, gomez’ playing on this album is just about as ’light-filled’ as it gets, and everyone that i know who has heard this set agrees that no other bassist could have brought to this project what eddie gomez did. of course, that could be said about so many of the records that have featured eddie. if you’ve not heard this particular album, try to check it out - it’s quite special.

Bookmark and Share "Green Room" from Batik, Ralph Towner. Eddie Gomez was so perfect for this song. Eddie could really wend his way in between the weird, dark, wonderful melodic twists that are so much the signature sound of Ralph’s musical soul. Everyone’s playing on this tune is amazing (DeJohnette) but you can just listen to Gomez’s intricate bass lines as a kind of light showing the way forward in this amazing song. 1978, and this stands up to the test of time in every way.

Bookmark and Share "As I Am" from Quartet. How is it possible that piano and guitar could so perfectly complement each other? These guys, Lyle and Pat, finding each other was some kind of musical miracle. Not to mention this gorgeous song, like a 5 minute goosebump.

Bookmark and Share Just listening to Pat Metheny and Charlie Haden during dinner last night. Very special album, a great deal of emotion in the music, and roominess to experience your reactions and expanding spirit. Lately, in my head I’m hearing "This is Not America" from "Falcon and the Snowman." Who would have thought.

Bookmark and Share Kurt Rosenwinkel CAIPI Kurt has been a guitar professor in Berlin for some years playing with Brian Blade, and others. Now on CAIPI he almost plays all the instruments himself with the help of Amanda Brecker daughter of Eliane Elias & Randy Brecker and Eric Clapton. His live band includes German pianist Olivia Trummer and multi-instrumentalists- vocalist Pedro Martins. It is like hearing the Pat Metheny Group with Pedro Aznar. The band will paly in New York’s Birdland in March.

Bookmark and Share indeed - paul wertico was beyond incredible w/PMG . . . having 3 great drummers in danny gottlieb, PW, and the incomparable antonio has been such a blessing for the group. you don’t often hear too much said about paul’s impact on the band, but it was there, and for 17 years! i saw him many, many times and he was always happening. one of my favorite paul wertico quotes is: ’ . . i try to dream as i play . . .’ ~ there’s probably only one drummer on the planet that could ’follow’ wertico, and that’s antonio. what a group.

Bookmark and Share "Yolanda, You Learn". This one was really Paul Wertico’s. Listening to his energetic, complex, highly original drumming on this song, you realize that that energy really gives this tune its identity. It’s hard to overestimate what he brought to the PMG in its heyday.

Bookmark and Share I have fallen madly in love with a Japanese band called Fox Capture Plan...very similar to Hiromi but with a little "new wave" thrown in. Hard to explain. Kait Dunton’s TRIOKait, The Storyboard - their "Hello" album is heavily influenced by late 70s/Early 80s PMG, Also some of Stanley Clarke’s recent fusion albums and Billy Cobham’s "Drum and Voice" albums.

Bookmark and Share Hey PatsFan, Thought you might want to know for future reference... Parallel Realities is not a "forgotten Pat album". It was actually released as a Jack DeJohnette album. And, I totally agree with you that it is a stunning CD! The four of them (Pat, Dave Holland, Jack and Herbie) are all at their best. If you have a chance to see the DVD - the live version is really quite something! Cheers!

Loueke is not a guitar player I’m familiar with and so far I’m liking his use of effects and his comping style, really different and refreshing. The other three players, goes without saying!.....

There are a couple of Beatle songs also - Blackbird & And I Love Her - also really fantastic arrangements! Check it out!

Bookmark and Share Secret Story, by far. It’s still my favorite album of all time. That, along with Metheny Mehldau, One Quiet Night, and As Falls Witicha, So Falls Witicha Falls.

Bookmark and Share Philip Catherine - Oscar. Brilliant guitar and brilliant rythm section. Guitar jazz European style...

Bookmark and Share Nik Bartsch - "Llyria" - If you can imagine what Swiss design sounds like, this would be it... The first track is so creative and moving. What an artist!

Bookmark and Share Yes - Close to the edge. One of their best, IMHO. No one could handle the Rickenbacker like Chris Squire. If there is a bass-heaven, he`ll be jammin` with Jaco now

Bookmark and Share "Flower Hour" - I’m sure many of you have this. After listening to it numerous times over the past month(s), as I am now, I’ve decided the concert album has some of Pat’s finest sustained playing, live or otherwise, with a killer band in support. Anything good you can think or say about this group’s members is in full swing: Jack, Dave, Herbie, Pat. Lord, have mercy! The "Parallel Realities" tour is one I’m sorry to have missed.

Bookmark and Share Michal Urbaniak "Jasmine Lady" from his album Urbaniak. Lovely unison sections between violin and Urszula Dudziak’s voice. Urbaniak is a really fantastic record and my favorite of his. A young Kenny Kirkland on keyboards too, showing why he became one of the greats.

Bookmark and Share Joshua Redman - Walking Shadows, with Larry Grenadier, Brad Meldhau and Brian Blade. Easy listening with some slick saxophone, excellent music for keeping both me and my patients at ease :-)

Bookmark and Share Giving SongX another try, but once again finding that my brain is still not completely ready... On the other hand; Ornette did a fantastic show in Tromsø in -91, and I totally understood most of it. Brilliant musicianship! Being able to really "getting" the complex music gave me a certain feeling of having a higher intelligence... Well...

Bookmark and Share Shuffling some Towner discs: "Ana," "Batik," "Blue Sun," "Diary." Nothing like some solo Ralph to soothe the soul.

Bookmark and Share Phronesis "Charm Defensive" from Walking Dark. Have a new setup I’m trying out, got into the portable digital thing, ala Head-Fi. Anyway, I got a FiiO X-1 (poorman’s X3/ X5) DAP, hooked up through a Cayin C5 portable amp going into a set of Sennheiser HD-598’s. Sounds really nice, and the Senns, being open headphones, really pick out the acoustics/soundstage of the tom-toms beautifully, like almost outside of your head at times.
