    Oh yes, when I was searching for Spirit and Time on Spotify I found a short playlist from blue note which has definitely got me started on Tony Williams thank you :)



    Edit - it's not such a short playlist when posted here, I guess the Australian version is somewhat restricted

    If you dig Tony’s stuff, his last two releases, a Blue Note France album called The Source and a more electronic collaboration with Jeff Mills that was released as a 4 Track 10” called Tomorrow Comes The Harvest are tres magnifique!

    @Mr Moore you are on a sublime roll of slight misses in your post reading but it's working for me! I'm adding those two to my Spotify library

    And I'm listening to tomorrow comes the harvest now and thinking why haven't I heard this before? Im a novice jazz explorer but I love electronic and especially semi-electronic music and this is right up my street

    Back home, out of the cold now, but no less inebriated! If you like this modern British sound, I urge you to take it back to Polar Bear's Held on the Tip's of Fingers. It's coming up to 15 years old but is still just as vital today as it was then. It was nominated for the Mercury Prize but jazz never wins unfortunately. The drummer, Seb Roachford, from Scotland is amazing. He's one of the drummers with Sons of Kemet. This is their masterpiece but unfortunately never had a vinyl release. @Storf - I know you've mentioned VMP are interested in the current Brit Jazz scene: if you haven't already, check out this Genesis for an exclusive consideration.

    In all seriousness, thank you for all recommendations. I'm having a great morning, jumping all over the place a little bit musically but it's brilliant. Just got to around the 2 1/2 minute mark on "Juicy Fruit" off Tony Williams' Native Heart and the guy is on fire. It will take me a while to digest what I have already added to my listening list but I greatly appreciate the guidance here

    Damn this is going to end up costing me! Native Heart is amazing, and evidently only pressed once. I think I might have to start saving for that Blue Note Review. I've already ordered Tomorrow Comes the Harvest. And I've barely scratched the surface of these recommendations. My wallet may be lightened but so is my soul

    So, after seeing post upon post about this Machine Gun guess for Classics, I finally gave it a listen. Entranced, flabbergasted, and confused, I delved deeper.


    And deeper.



    Aaaaannnnddddd deeeeepeeeeer until I landed on Trost Records in Vienna. Spent the better part of today previewing most of their releases and came upon a few I felt I couldn't keep to myself.

    Keep in mind, I have little experience with 'free jazz' and on any given day would've probably turned it off.

    Today was not that day.

    Made to Break - Trebuchet




    BROM - Sunstroke
