    There's usually a song I listen to for a year and 07 was marked by Ornette Coleman's Lonely Woman. The name of the album says it all: The Shape of Jazz to Come...done in 56 or 57...can't remember off the top of my head.

    But at the mo' I've gotta say a couple of hip cats from the UK are humming in my ears: J-Treole and Soweto Kinch.

    Some damn fine music on this list...I'm gonna have to check out some of the ska/reggae/roots that I'm not familiar with. Peace.

    Shape of Jazz was OC's debut on Atlantic. His first of many gifts to us. Recorded May 22, 1959, released later that year.

    Except for the May 22, that too was off the top of my head.

    Lonely Woman is a great tune. I also love Geri Allen's version on piano, in a great trio setting with Charlie haden and Paul Motian.

  • i'm listening to Otis Taylor, a fierce blues man on banjo. Man, his take on Jesus on White African is pretty dark.

    Listening to alot of oldschool , Yellowman & Eek-a-Mouse also discovering the works of Ahmed Abdul-Malik who was a bassist of Thelonious Monk. he also did great fusion experiments of Afro-Arabic music with Jazz (he is of Sudanese heritage), he recorded some of the earliest Jazz/Eastern Music fusions.

  • Today, Turn Around and 911 by Donnie. Probably played them 10 times each today, lol.

    This week though, I've had my 70s and 80s playlist going. I just discovered Chaka Khan (sad I know), I think I'm close to 40 plays this week alone haha.

  • Sunday Morning, House Resting

    Just finished Anthony Braxton's brilliant Town Hall 1972. Is there anyone out there who can decode those diagram titles?

    Moving on to Open The Iron Gate 1973-1977, a Max Romeo hitscomp. Contains the memorable line: "I don't want to be no careless Ethiopian." The space in the arrangements echoes the space in the Braxton compositions.

    You mean other than AB? Maybe George Lewis. Or Sun Ra.

    I'm listening to Curtis Mayfield... a lot of people seem to don't understand how important this music was.
