"In Through the Out Door", Led Zeppelin - Contrary to popular belief, I don't think it's that bad. Mind you, I fully understand it's not their best, but not exactly their worst tracks yet. "Hot Dog", although stale after a while, is still a decent track to listen to. Apart from "Hot Dog" (which I should mention is probably the least good track on the album), the other songs range from alright to amazing. Highlights for me include "In the Evening", "Fool In the Rain " and "All My Love".

Since you asked for suggestions, maybe you could listen to The Man Who Sold The World by David Bowie next? I'm currently listening to it (again) a-hard-days-night-george-9

That's a good one. If I recall correctly, this album would be the main source of inspiration for what will soon be Led Zeppelin's own "Rock and Roll". 

As for the song recommendations, I will take a listen to Phil Keaggy's "Acoustic Cafe", followed by David Bowie's "The Man Who Sold The World". Thank you all for the recommendations.

Since I am receiving recommendations myself, I would also like to offer a recommendation of my own. Perhaps one of you folks can check out "New Thing At Newport" featuring live renditions of both John Coltrane and Archie Shepp. The renditions takes place during the 1965 Newport Jazz Festival (not the folk festival mind you, we all know what when down during the folk festival). Both artists feature as free jazz pioneers, where Coltrane's performance was more grounded in traditional standards (hard bop), and Shepp's performance was more relatively modern-esque. Highlights for me include "My Favorite Things", "Scag" and "Rufus".

I listened to the CD release, rather than the original LP release. Here is a spotify link below:

Wow, I had no idea that Shepp's Newport lineup consisted of the great Bobby Hutcherson on vibes and no added horn players! I've seen that record forever (LP version had just the one Trane number) but never listened until right now. More of a quiet 60s Blue Note avant-garde chamber-jazz sound than I'd expect from Shepp in that era. Surprising and very nice; there's so much of his music I need to hear.

I'd like to recommend this album to any jazz fans who haven't heard it. This band is led by Shabaka Hutchings, who also leads the groups Ancestors and The Comet Is Coming (who put out a really good record themselves this year), and they have a lineup of two drummers, a tuba and saxophone. The result is a really groovy, rhythmic sound with saxophone playing that, when I saw them and The Comet Is Coming live this summer, really goes into the realms of free jazz.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

Wow, those samples sound really cool - I swear, my next phone will have room enough for Spotify. blue-meanie Two drummers (YES!!), a saxophonist/clarinetist (fine), and tuba (wtf?) is some kinda weird lineup for sure. You've posted this kind of thing before, like the Imperial Entanglements and I can't recall who else - it seems to me more like a kind of "post-jazz". They way they incorporate bits of hip-hop, zydeco, spoken-word stuff, reggae, whatever they feel like, that feels to me like something outside of jazz tradition...I dunno, I have opinions.

I wish there was more than minimal footage of these guys on Youtube, those sound clips sound fantastic and there are few things I love more than double drums.

Alrighty @vonbontee - you want more suggestions, here's something a little more out of left field. A collection of 'library music' for predominantly TV shows to use. Effectively, it was royalty-free music a few decades ago. For example, Beat Me Till I'm Blue, (54:19) was featured in Top Gear's Cheap Porsche Challenge.

There's also volume 1, 2, 3, and 5 on the same channel, but each video is about an hour to an hour and a half.

They're very much part of the new school of young London jazz musicians, who try to push away from the jazz label and incorporate some of the stuff they grew up with, like UK grime and that sort of thing. Post-jazz is a great way of describing it. 

This article does a great job describing the movement and some of its key acts, particularly this paragraph:

They’re grouped together as ‘jazz’, but it’s not really jazz, not as most know it. These artists are taking traditional elements of the style and remoulding them. This is jazz through a London lens, infused with grime, broken beat, house, afrobeat, cumbia and all the other sounds that flow through the city’s cultural veins. 

This video of them playing at the Mercury Prize (which they SHOULD have won, goddamnit) is pretty good. I'm also a big fan of Shabaka's other band, the aforementioned The Comet Is Coming. Here's one of their songs, which has some more electronic keyboards and overdriven bass to add to the jazz playing. Also a really cool music video.

Yeah, you've posted that Comet track before - it's one I was specifically thinking of yesterday when I wrote that post. Although I didnt say as much at the time, I took issue with you describing it as jazz (and didn't like the track itself much), so it's nice to see that the bands themselves aren't concerned with labels. 

Thanks for the link! I see Shabaka has a fair amount of performance footage in other band contexts on youtube; gonna check it out and see what he sounds like when blowing full-out.

David Bowie - 'Golden Years' over and over because I am on a kick of that song as well as 'Win', because I found some trousers that look very 1950s and am feeling extremely plastic soul Bowie today. a-hard-days-night-john-1 a-hard-days-night-george-4Also, it is AUTUMNal and I am singing it as 'golden leaves, go0o0o0l wopwopwop'. a-hard-days-night-john-6

I've been replaying two specific songs quite a bit. Autumn Leaves, the Eva Cassidy version, because it's autumn and also because it's possibly my favourite jazz standard. Also, Teenage Wildlife by Bowie, which is underrated as hell.

Not underrated by you! You've spoken of your love for that track often...I think songs with "Teenage" in the title are automatically kinda cool (same with "Detroit")

Up next on the jazz TV channel: Herbie Hancock's "King Cobra", a favourite of MINE (stellar drums by teenage Tony Williams) that I've posted here before. 

Recorded...1963 sometime (Beatles prolly did something cool that very same day, look it up! paul-mccartney

Added 'King Cobra' to my queue, since I haven't listened to Herbie in a while. 

Now listening to one of my favourite Springsteen songs, maybe because it has a vaguely Christmassy vibe to it.

Haven't played it in awhile, and I'd forgotten how exciting a debut this is, - they really sounded like nobody else in 1977, neither fully punk nor metal, but something more powerful than either, thanks in large part to that roar-and-Ricky bass up front. RIP, Lemmy, thanks for deciding to become a musician at age 16, after witnessing "you-know-who" at the Cavern in 1961. john-lennon-salute_gif
