after sleeping on pretty much all jazz after 1980 and accepting the commonly spouted belief that it was all just rehashing of older versions of jazz I've been finally giving some stuff from the last 15 years. Some of it is actually very good and pretty unique.
>>54222057 I had been holding off listening to this Flying Lotus album, because I was so afraid it was going to be a really shit record, but as it turns out, this album is fucking amazing.
I have quite honestly never heard anything like it before. He has somehow managed to make Jazz sound gritty and harsh, in a world where those two things usually are considered polar opposites. Props to the dude for making some really quite unique soundscapes, imo.
Also, Thundercat is a fucking monster on the bass. Top notch album. I think it's an album hip-hop heads, people who are into experimental electronic music as well as jazzcats can appreciate, equally.
Listening to Brilliant Corners, I wanted to hear what the fuss about his playing was all about Very enjoyable, I'm still kinda entry level in jazz right now, but I always love what I hear, and I seem to prefer Free-er stuff. That said, cubop is amazing
>>54223388 >still kinda entry level in jazz >prefer free-er stuff
nigga please you will probably insist that you like free jazz the best for quite a few months before you go back and dig into bebop and hard bop and then eventually come back to free jazz and realize you didn't even come close to understanding what you were listening to at first
>>54223786 I'm indulging myself in some Charlie Parker, so yeah I'm also listening to Bebop I wouldn't say I don't understand what I'm listening to, I'm competent in music theory and I'm interested in complex music. I guess I just prefer the interesting nature of free stuff. Playing in a Big Band developed my interest for jazz, now I want to have something to listen to for interest, like a thing to test my music knowledge I guess
>>54224397 Because there is often very little theory behind it. If you only approach jazz from a theory standpoint you still aren't getting the whole picture.
Free jazz is more enjoyable of you understand the history and tradition out of which it grew. Even though it is harmonically and rhythmically more loose than bebop/hard bop/modal whatever, you can often still pick out some elements of influence from these earlier styles, whether it be phrasing, blues idioms, rhythmic patterns, or melodic statements.
>>54224974 I like Pastorius playing on Trilogue - Live at the Berlin jazz days
I have recently been tricked by the lineup of pic related, which didn't pleased me at all. maybe the fact that it was recorded to be used as the soundtrack of a Michael Snow movie should have warned me
