Stan Levey surely must be one of the hippest white drummers of the bop and post-bop era. He first got on my radar when I learned that he was part of Dizzy’s legendary 1945 West Coast tour that also featured Bird. I really appreciate Levey’s crisp, melodic style that is on full display on 1956’s “Grand Stan,” one of his few sessions as a leader. I particularly love this set because it also features a very young and then-unknown pianist #SonnyClark who was then doing a lot of recording in L.A. for the Bethlehem label with West Coast musicians like Sonny Criss, Buddy DeFranco, Howard Rumsey’s Lighthouse All-Stars and trombonist #FrankRosolino, who is also featured on “Grand Stan.” My copy is an original mono pressing that I recently picked up at @steadysounds from the same batch of pristine DJ promos that yielded a whole bunch of rare finds over the summer. #StanLevey #Bethlehem #BethlehemRecords #jazz #hardbop #jazzvinyl #jazzrecords #jazzcollector #recordcollection #recordoftheday #vinyloftheday #vinyl #vinylporn #vinyljunkie #cratedigging
While my mind is going a hundred miles an hour, I’ll just listen to a random record. This is master of the piano #keithjarrett “Facing You” on #ecmrecords released in 1972... I am a huge fan of Jarrett during his time playing withgreats such as #artblakey #milesdavis and #charleslloyd ... but his solo albums are amazing as well, especially this one. Supposedly one of the top selling piano solo records of all time... #jazzrecords #records #recordcollection #jazzvinyl #vinylrecords #vinylcollection #vinylcommunity #jazzmusic #jazz #modaljazz #hardbop #improvisation #improvisationaljazz #freejazz #spiritualjazz
HANK MOBLEY: SOUL STATION (October 1960)
--------------------------------------------------
Jazz (hard bop)
--------------------------------------------------
Label: Blue Note
2014 BN reissue
--------------------------------------------------
Suggested tracks: Remember, This I Dig of You, Split Feelin’s
--------------------------------------------------
Soul Station is one of Mobley’s most well-known albums. Really great work from all ends, with Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Blakey holding it down on the kit. In the liner notes, Bob Blumenthal explains how the album is understood to be, for Mobley, what Saxophone Colossus or Giant Steps were for Sonny Rollins or John Coltrane respectively.
One minute excerpt of my solo on ‘Karmica’, a composition of mine that you can find in Question Market’s album (take a look on Spotify or ITunes!). Yes I know, I’m a phantom on this video, but you can ear my guitar play without seeing my ugly face! P.s. you can find the complete solo on my fb page! #originalmusic #firstalbum #newmusic #jazzmusic #jazzguitarist #swing #jazzguitar #guitarist #guitarhero #moffaguitars #henriksenamps #strymoneffects #neunaberaudio #pickupjazz #pickupjazzby #hardbop #jazz #modernjazz #newalbum2017 #jazzconcert

🎶 ANDREA INFUSINO JAZZ QUARTET 🎶
Andrea J Infusino - guitar & composer
Marco Rossin - sax
Fabio Guagliardi - organo
Manolito Cortese - drums

Andrea Infusino Quartet nasce nel 2014 come progetto che propone jazz moderno e originale. Il sound dei brani e del gruppo si rifà alle esperienze accademiche e concertistiche con chiari riferimenti al #bebop, all’#hardbop e al #jazzmodale. Nel format sono presenti riferimenti e citazioni ai colossi del jazz come John Coltrane, Joe Henderson, Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Smith recuperandone l’eredità in un progetto musicale fresco e innovativo che coniuga il glorioso passato del jazz con l’innovazione e la modernità. Non mancano, inoltre, influenze e suoni mediterranei con l’introduzione di strumenti quali il clarinetto basso e l’oud che si mescolano all’approccio fortemente jazzistico delle improvvisazioni. Grazie alla filosofia di forte coesione e di ascolto reciproco, il gruppo riesce a spaziare da momenti di chiaro senso ritmico al #freejazz che caratterizzano maggiormente i brani. L’interplay è il leitmotiv di ciascun brano che consente al gruppo deviazioni inaspettate e sempre originali, elevando i momenti musicali ad esperienze uniche d’ascolto.
