Playlist – 27 October 2011

Tonight’s CJ featured some of the most distinctive alto players on the planet – David Sanborn, Lee Konitz, Kenny Garrett and – of course – Charlie Parker. There was a significant contribution from British jazz, particularly artists from the north west of England and a tribute to the late British composer, director and keyboard player Graham Collier.

  1. David Sanborn – Comin’ Home Baby
  2. Dorival Caymmi – Berimbau
  3. Cannonball Adderley – Fun
  4.  Tyrone Washington – Yearning for Love
  5. Kenny Garrett – Equinox
  6. Arun Ghosh – Bondhu
  7. Lee Konitz – Hugo’s Head
  8. Matthew Halsall – Music for a Dancing Mind
  9. Nat Birchall – Radiant Will
  10. Graham Collier – Lullaby for a Lonely Child
  11. Charlie Parker – Now’s the Time
  12. Leon Greening – Ruth
  13. Kit Downes Trio – Jump Minzi Jump
  14. Thundercat – Boat Cruise

On video this week is Lee Konitz, live in 2007. The clip is unfortunately short – but a great example of Konitz’s ability to improvise long lines on the standard What’s New.

And because that last clip was so short here’s a bonus: the Marcin Wasilewski Trio at the Starówce Jazz Festival, probably in 2010, with Sławomir Kurkiewicz on bass and Michał Miskiewicz on drums.
