Thanks for the nods and links to Barney McAll and Ian Dogole and Koblas Kesecker—always good to hear new jazz being made.

His space jazz makes Alice C (and perhaps even Sun Ra) sound silly and pointless. (Except when Pharaoh is playing on it.)

 
You may enjoy UK saxophonist Alvin Davis, too. I don't care for his vocal tracks, but I like most of everything else he does. Let It Blow is a particularly stong album.

Cool! Upper & Lower Egypt is my favorite track on that album. Later in his career, Pharoah teamed up with Lonnie Liston Smith and out of that collaboration came two of my all-time favorites—Thembi and Astral Traveling.

An oldie but a goodie is Alice Coltrane's dreamy Journey In Satchidananda album (below). Pharoah plays on it, too.

Australia's Barney McAll Unit is terrific. 33 sends chills down my spine whenever I hear it (it starts about 38 seconds into the YouTube video below).

I had the opportunity to hear Ian Dogole's Hemispheres (with Oregon's Paul McCandless on woodwinds) front-row live at 142 Throckmorton Theatre in Mill Valley, CA. Orca Stroll is my favorite track, but I couldn't find a video. Here's another of their tracks, filmed at that same venue to give you a taste.

And a more recent find is the Koblas Kesecker Ensemble No Gravity album.

101 ways to get into jazz

book and 4 discs

on my wish list ...
 
The way I got into jazz was by just listening to it. Actually, I was about 10 or 11 (~1964) when I discovered a copy of Take Five in my brother's room and gave it a spin. I was blown away! While doing homework, or just listening to the radio before drfiting off to sleep, I'd spin the dial over to WJZZ or WDET (Detroit) just to hear what was happening. Sometimes it was a winner, othertimes not so. My ears were always open, and I'd listen for track IDs (much easier today with playlists being posted on the innertube). With whatever LP money I had, I'd frequently rifle through the record store bins and play hunches on such artists as Yusef Lateef, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Gerry Mulligan, McCoy Tyner and the likes. Not very efficient, but there were several pleasant surprises, such as The Flowering of the Charles Lloyd Quintet.

The big breakthrough was when Miles' Bitches Brew crossed over. After that I started picking up on all of those artists who, at one time or another, were a part of Miles' ensembles: Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin, Ron Carter... the list is quite lengthy. A seminal moment came when a former English teacher inadvertently introduced me to Pharoah Sanders' groundbreaking Tauhid LP back in '69.

For those wanting to know the background, look no further than Ken Burns' excellent Jazz series, which Netflix subscribers can stream to their PCs or set-top boxes. Many well-stocked municipal libraries also have a copy you can borrow for free. Speaking of municipal libraries, they often have a surprisingly-interesting CD collection; that's how I first got turned on to many artists such as Gabor Szabo and Jeremy Steig. Netflix has a lot of other great stuff for rent, too, including some intriguing Montreaux Jazz Festival presentations.

I tried "My Favorite Things" (and numerous other Coltrane tracks) long ago. All sorried. Good luck with this attempt. The "Flamenco Sketches" I love, but is also an unlikely add (though I did have some success—my very first add ever!—with "One for Daddy-O" by Miles and Cannonball). Now, the Coleman Hawkins reading of "Body and Soul" is both classic and an RP-friendly length, so if I were a betting man, I would lay even odds on Rebecca giving it the RP seal of approval.

To much jazz!
 
say yes to jazz ... the trick is divining what would fit in with the rp flow as so many have wondered ... {#Think}

which leads me to believe that it may be the version or a tech snafu that gets a song rejected
which means we should all re encode and try try again ... {#High-five}

Evidently I was writing the definitive guide to gift-giving.  Or at least a three-page treatise on the subject. {#Lol}
 
I see the thread started (years ago) with a comment about Patricia Barber.  I was on a huge Patricia Barber kick this summer.  Perfect for driving around after dark with the top down.  Oddly, I tried to listen to her the other day and it just wasn't the same.  I couldn't get into it at all.  But that is one of the great things about jazz, isn't it?  It is as if the music has a personality of its own.  Maybe all music has a personality, I don't know.  But much of jazz has a very definite, distinct personality.  Some of it is joyful.  Some of it is angry.  Some of it is downright sexy but if you asked me what was sexy about it I probably couldn't answer.
 
Wait, that has nothing to do with what ya'll are discussing.  Nevermind, back to the regularly scheduled programming.  I'm off to bed and maybe I'll have something to say worth reading tomorrow.  But don't count on it!

They probably had to get it in between commercials.  They're pros, they can handle it.  I almost always got my little brother albums for Xmas, but I certainly didn't let him pick them out.  He is eight years my junior and started high school at the onset of the disco era.  I felt sorry for him and was trying to do what I could to help out him and his poor friends some of whom didn't have older siblings.
