Brrrrrr...I feel a breeze.

Oh, well, let me break the ice here in this den of inertia by offering a listening suggestion. 

I heard the Bill Charlap Trio at Dizzy's Coca Cola Room on Sunday evening the 27th, with Peter Washington on bass and Kenny Washington on drums. 

It was a dazzling performance, refreshing for its originality and lack of flummery or artifice.  Pianist Charlap's toucn and harmonic sensibility is especially engaging considering how many pianists wallow in cliches, and the two Washingtons, brothers in spirit if not parentage, play with grace, power and sensitivity.  Together they are a juggernaut. 

But it was Charlap's arranging perspective which really knocked me out.  The trio's rhythmic and harmonic variations on a medley of themes from "West Sdie Story" was inspirational, particularly his treatment of "There's A Place For Us", a tune which has the potential for vast expanses of bathos and cheap sentimentality in lesser hands. 

On Tuesday evening, the trio opens their second week of a two week engagement, and anyone who loves jazz, needs to check it out.  This is exceptionally classy trio work at the highest levels of elegance and swing.

Nice to see you around Chip.  I recently saw Charles Lloyd in Vilnius, with Jason Moran filling in for Geri Allen.  Nice fit.

I've fallen in love with Dianne Reeves and only have her recordings on "Good Night and Good Luck" s/t.  Only album I have so far.

And Eva Cassidy, Live at the Blue Note, with a great jazz band (sounds like jazz to be).

Seems like the Denver area has a pretty happenin' jazz scene. That station I referred to has played several cuts from locals or former locals as well. I'd consider a move but ain't a cold climate kinda guy. Woke up one day last week and found frost on my brother's back porch. Freezing overnight temps in June won't cut it. Damn.

Has anyone seen Dianne Reeves live?  I just bought a ticket to her concert in October at the Met Museum of Art in NY.  I loved her performance in Good Night and Good Luck and bought the cd which I immediately fell in love with (I also want to buy more of this great lady).

I know very little about her.

It has been a while since I last listened to Dianne Reeves.  I have her "Quiet After the Storm" CD which I have enjoyed.

The recent Joshua Redman CD is good.  While others have gone funk, Redman sticks with the basics in Back East,

http://www.amazon.com/Back-East-Joshua-Redman-Trio/dp/B000N4S95Q/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/105-5791205-4542015?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1187075005&sr=1-1

He goes with bass and drum on this one, with some guest horns like that of Joe Lovano.  I like the way Redman has matured over the years.
