I’m listening right now to the biggest 2008 surprise, Elephant9.

A norwergian trio who dare to build a sound inspired by Miles Davis ( Bitches Brew), ELP (Tarkus) and Mahavishnu Orchestra.

Everything is just perfectly right. There’s no much to say, whoever knows one of the foresaid names will just get this album and enjoy.

10/10. Surely one of the greatest 2008 albums.

Bill Evans - Waltz for Debby

Waltz for Debby is the second release recorded at the Village Vanguard. It’s from the same session that generated the fantastic Sunday at the Village Vanguard.

I’d say Sunday at the Village Vanguard has more catchy songs, but Walts for Debby isn’t worst than that in any way.

Bill Evans - Sunday at the village Vanguard

Bill Evans is one of the most expressive names in cool jazz. He inspired countless famous pianists and his music is still vivid even for today standards.

Sunday at the Village Vanguard is one of his most important works and was recorded live with his trio.

The first track, Gloria’s Step just blew me away. Do you know when you don’t want to go to the next track and repeat that one 3 or 4 times?

Bill Evans‘ music is relaxing yet complex. It’s sophisticated and soft.
Highly recommended, one of the greatest stuff I discovered these last weeks.

Chet Baker - My Funny Valentine (Philology)

I’m not a fan of Baker‘s vocals, and My Funny Valentine features his vocals all over the album. So it’s weak to Chet Baker‘s standards but not that bad at all.
