Some time back I managed to get hold of one of the weirdest jazz albums I had ever heard, it was almost unlistenable in any capacity. It's called Is Eternal Life by William Hooker and it's an absolute menace. Apparently released in 1977, I don't know a great deal about it and the full thing isn't on YouTube as far as I know. The uploader of this video has one other song and he even asked for some help in identifying the song names, so maybe I'm sat on something really special even if the result is challenging. It's almost like it's being played badly on purpose. For all of its pitfalls, I do appreciate it, but I can't say I've heard it all the way through because it just doesn't let up.
Love these guys, and love Faria's web show.
There's another great clip with Bertault where she sings Giant Steps with lyrics on a transcription of Trane's solo
My dad used to play the heck out of this LP when I was a kid. Amazing performance....lyrics are just as powerful today as they were back in 1969. This jam will anyways be linked to the movie "Casino".
Some Jazz from France.
Holy sh*t, have y'all heard the latest Metheny record?
I've listened to this track countless times, and each time, including this one, it's so... encompassing and mighty that I can't listen to anything after it. This record is one of his greatest works ever. Great band, but Antonio Sanchez personally lifts it up to a plateau unreachable to us mortal musicians. Finally, another Metheny landmark, on level with PMG's "Speaking of Now".
I've merged 5 posts of just videos with no discussion. Can we please add a sentence or two and not just post videos with no context or background. It's OK to do it here and there but 5 consecutive posts, is too much.
This is quite genius. Listen to the original here. It's the classic Take Five by Dave Brubeck Quartet. But this guy took chopped it up and sampled it and made Golden Brown by The Stranglers as their keyboardist recently died of C19.
