another midnight classic: mingus plays piano

yeah, so besides being a fucking god-like bass player and composer, mr. mingus is also responsible for crafting one of my fav jazz piano albums of all times. chuck this on one late night after the party is winding down or some lazy sunday and see if it doesn’t become one of your staples. i […]

cool summer reads: jack chambers’ milestones-the music and times of miles davis

  considering the many related posts, you may have figured out by now, that i love me some miles.  maybe love is too weak a word? ahem. anyhoo, this epic read leaves no milestone(sorry) unturned, no matter how much funk might be growing underneath. so authoritatively researched in fact, that miles himself apparently burgled it […]

alva noto and ryuichi sakamoto-summvs: so shim recommended

as always the album art is a little grandma-esque for my taste but dammit this just may be the finest yet in their oh so fertile collab. “dreamy” doesn’t even come close. beg, borrow or ask for it for xxx-mas.
