An amazing quartet performing the composition “Pathways” by Dave Holland at Newport Jazz Festival in 2004. Shorter, Hancock, Holland and Blade – seeing is believing – masters at work!
Rudresh Mahanthappa surrounded himself with a superb quintet, the album called the attention of critics, an homage to Charlie Parker has everything to go wrong, you can either imitate Bird, present something again in a slightly different form or try imagining how Parker would have played the tunes he didn’t get to know.
Mahanthappa simply used Charlie Parker as an inspiration for an album where the tunes sound like himself. More accessible music in Mahanthappa’s opinion only because it is linked to Charlie Parker so people are expecting to hear something that would sound like him. People simply made themselves more accessible because there is this story behind.
Rudresh’s fluency is something that comes out naturally now, it doesn’t look a deliberate and studied thing!
Personnel: Rudresh Mahanthappa: alto saxophone; Adam O’Farrill: trumpet; Matt Mitchell: piano; Francois Moutin: acoustic bass; Rudy Royston: drums.
Extremely hot day – now it’s 32ºC // 7:30 p.m. – slow and wonderful music inside a church to go with it .

Four months after the recording of Out To Lunch, Eric Dolphy passed away. All compositions are by himself – the record is now fifty years old – and it is one of the high points in the 1960s avant garde jazz. It is also a Blue Note record – one of the most challenging in the catalog. Dolphy reaches his creative peak – a brilliant album which needs a very open-minded listening. I really feel into it – on this cold but clear Saturday morning!
Track Listing: Hat And Beard; Something Sweet, Something Tender; Gazzelloni; Out To Lunch; Straight Up And Down.
Personnel: Eric Dolphy: alto sax, flute, bass clarinet; Freddie Hubbard: trumpet; Bobby Hutcherson: vibes; Richard Davis: bass; Tony Williams: drums.
