Surly Jazz Thread

Recommended Posts

So I posted a song in the Bass Lines thread, a funk song I had heard years ago, had it playing in the background while I was working, and then the youtube auto-pay took over.  Holy shit, some great jazz fusion pieces popped up, I'm loving it...

I picture Roy Scheider or Al Pacino driving into the precinct just as the sun comes up, crossing the Brooklyn Bridge with the NYC skyline in the background...

 

This one, I see Pam Grier coming home after a hard day at work, pouring a drink, taking off her work clothes, and, um... brb...

 

And goddam Chet Baker.

My brother just reminded me of a couple trumpet heavy tracks my dad used to jam on his reel to reel when we were kids.

not exactly jazz, but a trumpet pr0n qualifier (especially the notes he blows at the end):

So I've been on kind of an Autumn Leaves kick since my kids piano teacher played a killer version of it at the piano recital this year.  Cliche, perhaps, but it's the "Johnny B. Goode" of jazz.  Every can play it, and you never hear it the same way twice as everyone puts their own spins on it.  Here are some variations that have blown me away.

We'll call this the base line, perhaps the most familiar version.

Spanish/Country style:

Just left Showman's in Harlem. Pretty well known jazz club that's been around for 80 years or so. I had a great time. The music minister from my church in The Bronx and the saxophone player were performing tonight. They are a lot of fun to listen to. Very high energy and they perform there once a month. They make singing in the choir at church a great experience every Sunday.

Wonderful version of Autumn Leaves. One of my favorite albums.
