SD, First off, lets state at the outset, that you are one of the top three assets this site has to offer. All of the heat that you have taken recently regarding your character is an outright lie. Your knowledge of topics related to the music field is, without question.
I typically look for your posts in that area, because I am certain that your comments are valid and accurate, as you have proven over and over.
All one need do, is read your comments on a post regarding "racism" a few weeks back, and any assaults on your persona will quickly be silenced. Sorry, but that needed to be stated, clearly.
Now, regarding this post, David Murray would be a great choice. (MORNING SONG LP!!!!)
If I were to name a single artist in Jazz that I felt everyone that was really serious about the subject should hear, and I only had ONE choice, The artist would be Pianist
The CD that changed my life musically when I heard it was
Tete Montoliu Trio>>> "Tootie's Tempo" STEEPLECHASE SCCD 31108.
I simply know of no other Trio that is this good. I can confidently reccomend to all serious Jazz people this CD as the very best artistry and musicmaking I have ever heard. The recording is really minimalist and outstanding. Recorded in 1976 with Niels Henning Orsted Pederson (Bass) and the spectacular Albert "Tootie" Heath on drums.
Tete, was blind and recently passed away, but I can assure you, once this artist grabs hold of you, you really wont forget it. ITS THAT GOOD. Thanks for listening..........Frank
