Here's some of the stuff I've been checking out lately.
The Paris Big Band has such an incredible and tight horn section plus some beautiful arrangments/ compositions... is absolutely worth to listen to this guys!
I met Gabrielle Mirabassi two years ago, at this Jazz project we played in São Paulo... we became friends at that time and he gave me an album... such a lirical album. The trio sounds great with no drums.
John Williams is like one of those "you-must-listen-to" composers of our days... an amazing musical mind. This particular score "The Terminal" brings a Jazz flavor within ( it has to do with the history) that I enjoyed so much.
Back in 98', while living in Boston, I was checking out some cds at this store, and suddenly they start playing an album with a guitar player that knocked me out! I asked to the guy "who's playing??" It was Peter Bernstein, and the album was Whatever it takes, by Larry Goldings.
Shostakovich is one of the greats from Russia ( St. Petersburg)...I love this album. Another combination that can't go wrong: Nelson Freire and Villa Lobos.
Moonstone is one of my favorite albuns by Horta. The title track's version, with two guitars, him and Metheny, it's a classic. Paul Simon is a terrific songwriter... this album has all those classics and more, a Landmark. There's also a DVD with that Central Park Concert, wonderful... enjoy!
