What am I listening to?
You can put the entire works of Steely Dan, Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway down for a start!
This week I am checking out;
Metropole Orchestra with John Scofield. 54. This album is John featured with the Orchestra with arrangements by Vince Mendoza. This is a great album with great rhythm section playing from Martijn Vink on drums and Aram Kersbergen on Bass.
John Scofield-Still Warm. I bought this album on vinyl when it came out and it sounds just as good as it did back then. John is joined by Omar Hakim, Daryl Jones and Don Grolnick, great playing and fine compositions.
Freddie Hubbard-Ride Like The Wind. This is a direct to 2 track Studio recording with Abe Laboriel on bass and Bill Maxwell on drums grooving hard. A great vibey album. The is a video of this kicking around and Freddie blows up a storm.
