Playlist, Week of 2017-10-15

Beginning to delve into this massive Dylan box... I'm familiar with many of the shows from bootlegs, but of course this is far better sound and way more comprehensive... I am starting to warm up to the new Deerhoof CD... it's taking a while, but there are definitely interesting moments scattered throughout... Greg Saunier's drumming is a bit more subdued, and there aren't as many hooks, and I'm not as fond of the guests' appearances... but hey, I'm cranky... and I take it back: Matana Robert's short contribution is wonderful... For my Threadgill sweep, I am restricting it to groups he led or was a co-member of, so it's Air to start off with, and then the various Sextettes, Zooids, etc. but not recordings on which he was a guest... and working through the Air recordings I am once again reminded how amazing a drummer Steve McCall was... as I've mentioned before, I was fortunate to see him play with Arthur Blythe at the Village Vanguard (along with Fred Hopkins)... never got to see Air, though... Great solid hard bop from Paul Chambers, especially the sessions with Coltrane... I used to despise (well, that's a strong word; maybe scorn would be better) "jazz guitar"... it just all sounded so weak to me compared to Hendrix... well, I'm older now... my tastes have not mellowed, but I do enjoy Kenny Burrell's work on Whims of Chambers... I may not be ready for Joe Pass, but I am not adverse to checking out Wes Montgomery or Grant Green... what does that say about me?
