✨✧ Ron MilesI Am A Man ... CD
Yellow Bird (Germany), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Ron Miles achieves a beautiful balance in sound here – working with his cornet alongside Bill Frisell on guitar, Jason Moran on piano, Thomas Morgan on bass, and Brian Blade on drums! Some of these players have worked together often over the years, and you can really hear that in the performance – as nobody ever dominates too much, and instead the group seems to take great joy in finding the best way for its sounds to resonate with each other – with some especially nice elements that come from the ringing tones of Frisell's guitar and Moran's piano. Blade is nice and gentle – a bit different than his work as a leader, but still definitely a key part of the sound – and titles include "Darken My Door", "Jasper", "Mother Juggler", "Revolutionary Congregation", and "I Am A Man".

Jason MoranArtist In Residence ... CD
Blue Note, 2006. Used ... $2.99
Another wonderful conceptual effort from pianist Jason Moran – perhaps the most exciting young musician recording for new millenium Blue Note! Artist In Residence features compositions that Moran and collaborators have done for exhibitions at New York's Dia:Beacon museum, Minneapolis's Walker Arts Center, Jazz At Lincoln Center's Rose Hall in NY – each exhibit very different, but the composed pieces flow very naturally on the album, and make for sort of a meditation on the artistic process in a fairly broad sense. That's a fussy, clinical sounding approach – but Moran's a very passionate player, with a highly rhythmic, and often very melodic sound – accompanied by his excellent core group of Marvin Sewell on guitar, Tarus Mateen on bass and Nasheet Waits on drums – with guest voice, percussion, and trumpet. We're dying for Moran to give us another killer, straight up, (seemingly) concept-free modern jazz classic a la 2001's Black Stars LP (the record that reminded us how great Sam Rivers remains), but everything he touches is well worth a listen! Titles include Moran's compositions "Break Down", "Refraction"(1 and 2), "Artists Ought To Be Writing", "Arizona Landscape", "RAIN" and "He Puts His Coat On His Sleeve", plus "Milestone" (by Alicia Hall Moran)", "Cradle Song", and "Lift Every Voice".
