Can you guys recommend a good book or two, and a documentary perhaps? Should I just dig into Ken Burns for an introduction into why jazz matters and what I can look for in jazz to deepen my appreciation for it?


Ken Burns jazz doc is terrible.

can you recommend any other documentaries in that case that will teach me about jazz


The best guide is the penguin jazz book that everyone talked about one page ago. (aka, read the thread dude)

some of Gaslini's early 'chamber jazz' from the late 50s, was way ahead of its time, and pretty much is unheard of. A true innovator of jazz really.

Geoff, who are the CTI artists you appreciate?

I realize it's not your wheelhouse, but some of those people have inarguable talent, and you must like some combinations of them.

curious of your thoughts.

I got a ticket already regardless, going with my dad (we went last year because sun ra arkestra and anthony braxton were gonna be there but were totally floored by all these artists we'd never heard of)

I don't really know much about these besides alice coltrane stuff, what do you recommend I give a good listen to it before the actual festival?

Ive been listening to this show on the Vancouver-based internet radio called No Fun Radio, and it's seriously the best (i.e. most aligned with what I like) collection of jazz I've come across!

I don't know if anyone else will be into it, but it's called Infinite Sound and I think it's mainly 60s and 70s
https://www.mixcloud.com/nofunradio/inf ... und-62418/

Last episode:
Jorge Lopez Ruiz 5 - Todo Fluye
Batsumi - Itumeleng
Sphere - Inside Ourselves
Art Ensemble Of Chicago - Proverbes (I)
Nat Birchall - Man From Varasani
Sabu Martinez - Afro Temple
Brother Ah - Hanifah
Kiyoshi Sugimoto - Babylonia Wind
Chet Baker - Summertime

note: my knowledge of jazz is zilch

That lineup looks great Waldo!

I'm not sure what that quartet with Oliver Lake is like, but I dig his stuff.
