Yeah, I’ve just started to dive into his catalogue, and it’s daunting, lol. I’ll put that on my list. I’m a Philly boi, and he spent a lot of time living and performing in a neighborhood not far from me.
I stumbled upon this album a couple years ago and I feel in love with it and just spent the last half hour scouring my youtube and google history trying to find it. I’m glad I did finally found it again.
Man, it took me way too long to get around to Hiromi’s latest album, but it’s what I’ve been listening to tonight, and I’m liking it a whole lot. I’d recommend listening to the full thing from start to finish, but this track is a good sample.
I love jazz and will be looking through this thread tomorrow at work to search out some of the recommendations! Most of my listening has been jazz fusion. I gotta say I love cheesy-ass Japanese jazz fusion a lot. T-SQUARE is my jam. Also saw Victor Wooten a few years ago and love his stuff.
What do ya’ll think of the movie Whiplash? The tracks in that movie have been in my jazz playlist for a few years now, and the 7/4 title track was one of the first really challenging pieces I learned on drums. Love that movie’s score, my god.
I’ve been wanting to get into some jazz, but I don’t really know what to look for. An example of a piece that I have found and really like is this performance of Fuller Love, and I’m wondering if any of you know of other songs with a similar tone and energy to it.
Hey! I thought I’d share one of my favorite jazz pianists: Jan Johansson. The album is called “jazz in swedish” and is him taking traditional swedish folk songs and making them into jazz ballads. Some of my favorite music for relaxation, reading and studying. Enjoy!
