Playlist, Week of 2017-06-25

Beautiful noise-imbued ambience from Anduin... stream it here... There's never time to listen to everything I want to listen to every day... if I had days long enough to be able to listen to everything I wanted to on a daily basis, something from Cecil Taylor would always be included.... Garden is one of my fave Cecil solo recordings, as much for its lyricism as for its pyrotechnical brilliance... I'm still absorbing the Feel Trio box set, and Tony Oxley continues to be my favorite drummer for Cecil... Fun to revisit the old Arthur Blythe Columbia albums... tons of great ideas and great playing, although my tastes have certainly changed over the years... I have a harder time enjoying his sharp vibrato trills now, which strike me as shrill... I need to dig out my old cassettes of the Blythe "In the Tradition" quartet at the Village Vanguard... as I remember, there were technical difficulties, but also incredible playing, especially from Fred Hopkins and Steve McCall... so glad I got to see both of these masters, and in such a vibrant, intimate setting... stay tuned...
