First BA review of the year, up tomorrow, will be of the Anna Högberg Attack album, which I totally missed in 2016. (Came out in April.) An all-female Swedish sextet led by a saxophonist who guested on the most recent album by The Thing, and is also a member of Fire! Orchestra.

I like it, although I'd totally forgotten about it until recently when quite a few people on blogs I read were voting it no.1 on their eoy lists.

Anna Högberg Attack review. Short version: It's not paradigm-shifting or anything, but it's enjoyable if you like '60s style free jazz.

been working with a sax & woodwinds guy for two years now and as we've worked closer together, my jazz listening has been rekindled (I grew up on jazz, my dad played in combos all through my youth). ran across this yesterday via the Fuckin' Record Reviews Tumblr, it was on their giant year-end list of links -- to my ears, it's really good, really just jamming but...I like me some jams

There are some groups I'd really like to see, like Darcy James Argue's Secret Society, Donny McCaslin's quartet, the Andrew Cyrille/Bill McHenry duo (I've seen them together before, as part of McHenry's quartet with Orrin Evans and Eric Revis), and Melissa Aldana's trio, but I don't think I'm gonna make it. Winter Jazzfest is just too manic for me.

i was actually looking up a mats gustafsson thing when i found that. i have heard stuff of his that i liked. but that live clip is terrible. it really is. so sloppy. the singers are sad. they need to lock themselves in a room for a decade and just play or something. it just sounds like a sad approximation of another time. surprised they don't have a sleigh bell virtuoso. i can't believe that they can listen to audio of that and think that they sound good. if it were just some ramshackle punk d.i.y. approach to "fire music" done as a lark it would be one thing, but it sounds like they have "ideas".

The Fire! Orchestra isn't for me either tbh, but I did like the Fire! trio album they recorded last year though. I'm not against big bands either, just not Them type ones.

that Matt Wilson's Big Happy Family release from last year is more like the modern type of big band I can get into.

This reminds me of the London Jazz Composers Orchestra's late '80s/early '90s stuff: "We need a JAZZ section! We need a COMPOSED section (some midtempo unison lines will do the trick)! We need a FREE IMPROV section! Or multiple FREE IMPROV sections! Different small groupings doing FREE IMPROV broken up by the COMPOSED unison lines!" To be fair, the LJCO stuff is pretty decent (and you might like them, Scott -- their much better rehearsed than Fire! Orchestra), but this is a chronic problem in this music, composers/bandleaders trying to desperately shoehorn as many of their "influences" as possible into long/large-scale works to the extent that it ends up as a clumsy collage of half-assed pseudo-homages.

Mention of the LJCO semi-reminded me of Gil Evans' The London Orchestra, actually The British Orchestra, who took it on the road in '83---this might be best suited for later tonight, but don't sleep on it---if don't show, they're doing "Little Wing", without trying to beat Hendrix at his own game, performance-wise anyway (they catch the vibe and pass it right along: no bogarting, despite the length). With John Surman and Ray Russell soloing, Mo Foster on bass, drums uncredited on my LP of 'em and here, other horns are into it without horning in:

Ha, well, there are a lot of interesting things happening so I'm trying to pick. After listening, though, this will be a priority. Wow @ Scofield's solos on "Lay Lady Lay". "Song for World Forgiveness" was a highlight for me, too. I'll admit to skipping through the tracks with vocals.

That NYT Craig Taborn profile was a really interesting portrait of the artist as a social recluse, without the mythologising b/s that sometimes goes with that type of thing. His Daylight Ghosts + Ljubljana (w/Gustafsson) are both sick albums imo.

I really think the Hudson show from last night was among the better shows I've ever seen! All four guys were killing it and the sound was great, which is not always the case in that space. They brought their own engineer, which probably helped. I expected great things from Scofield and deJohnette but Medeski blew me away. He had three keyboards: an acoustic piano, an organ (Hammond?), and an electronic keyboard. (The programme said "synth"; might have been a Fender Rhodes with a tonne of pedals?). (I obv can't ID keyboards as well as guitars.) With the latter, he got way noisier than he does on the album. I sometimes felt like I was hearing polytonality during the jams, with Medeski playing in a different key than the other guys? Scofield could get a really piercing, penetrating sound while staying fairly clean and clear. DeJohnette maintained a light touch throughout.

Listening to that xpost Old And New Dreams trib to a trib on the radio (Jazz Night In America): "It became less of an Ornette cover band and more about their own music", and this gets more involving as it slows down and digs in---more about the present musos' own playing (esp. bass and drums, for me).

Been having a good festival so far: going to see Bad Plus tonight. Last night, I saw Sonoluminescence Trio (David Mott, Jesse Stewart, William Parker), who were really great, better than the first time I saw them, probably, with a lot of variety and dynamics and even some memorable melodic and rhythmic hooks. Mott integrated his circular breathing and multiphonic techniques into the improv really effectively. Stewart is probably one of my favourite percussionists going right now, on kit as well as waterphone; Parker was obv fantastic, playing a variety of instruments, two of which I couldn't identify, as well as singing on one piece. I picked up their brand-new LP. I can't play the LP until I reunite with my turntable in the fall but the mp3s sound excellent. It's a two-track analogue live (in Ottawa!) recording with a lot of warmth. The day before, I saw the Garry Elliott Quartet play totally straight-ahead stuff, which was really nice for a change.

He's great as a sideman on some of those Ralph Peterson records. And he has some Criss Cross records with great bands (also w/Peterson). I haven't heard any of the Tarbaby stuff but have been meaning to check it out.

I wonder what TBP would sound like with Eric Lewis on piano...he probably doesn't have the right aesthetic, but his playing is so ridiculous. He's on the Herlin Riley record that I listen to to hype myself up every time I have to play a jazz gig.
