Arabesque — Estes Park, CO (10/25/80)

Arabesque – “a little bit Django, a little bit Dawg.” I gave this a listen a while back and fell in love with it. Beautiful music that’s 30+ years old. To put it in perspective, when they’re playing Norwegian Wood on this recording, John Lennon was still alive and well in NYC. Check it out and let me know what you think…

Sunday Jazz — John Scofield

scofieldLegendary guitarist John Scofield is Sunday Jazz’s focus today. I remember catching a Scofield show at The Georgia Theatre 8-9 years ago on same random evening. The vibe at the show was chill and I remember seeing Scofield walking through the front door and straight up on stage. Just kind of struck me as a no nonsense, no frills approach. There’s no need for me to rehash the greatness of his guitar work through the years (with Miles Davis, MMW, etc.), but his album A Go Go is really one of those albums everyone should have in their collection.

Here’s some of his work through the years.

Here’s Sco’ with Pat Martino and Joey DeFrancesco, which speaking of Joey, you should check out his Sinatra album, playing “Sunny”:

Miles Davis — Paris, FR (11/3/69)

MDA110057My favorite period of Miles is his electric period, in which he merged acid rock and funk. This show captures Miles at one of his many peaks in his incredible career.

Happy Birthday — John Coltrane

WallJohnColtraneBebop and free jazz saxophonist, John Coltrane would have been 83 today. To say that Coltrane was a great saxophonist is like saying Willie Mays was a good outfielder, translation = he was the best. Here’s John tackling the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, “My Favorite Things”.
