for starters, Jazz at the Pawnshop. Incredible album. FIM has xrcd and sacd cd versions but even the redbook is unbelievable!
Also, Eddy House meets the Pim Jacobs trio.
The latter is the rarer of the two but must haves for jazz lovers!
Champtree! No harm meant by stating that Barron is an American! Gotta love our Jazz rooooooots baby! He's played with the likes of Monk and Pass.
Lots of stuff from blue note and verve. Even their older (read much preferred) releases in AAD (analog to digital) for cd's are great too!
Check out Huong Thanh's Mangustao and Dragonfly (African mixed Vietnamese), produced by Nguyen Le. Also ELB (L=Le) and latest Nguyen Le's cd w/ Dhafer Youssef, and one older album with Trilok Gurtu on few tracks. Listen to Nguyen Le on Joule Electra VZN, Atma-Sphere M, and Shindo Monbrison and Shindo amp (i have all three systems) are match made in heaven. I've retired all other jazz/fusion Cds after Nguyen Le's experience because the content is "fluid", the artistry is world class and versatile, and the recording (by Act Music) is phenomenon. I am checking out Doky Minh next, another artist with Vietnamese background, who voted by Bass world as virtuoso.
Nguyen Le' is awesome. You need "Three Trios" and "Million Waves" they are better than the others in most ways. I have all his stuff. "tales from Viet Nam" is great too. They are all on the ACT label. He also did a Hendrix tribute. Chris Mihn Doky is great on Trilok Gurtus "Believe". All the Gurtu albums on CMP are great as well as "The Glimpse".
