five years pass...

No youtubes, but I've been into Horace Tapscott, Joe Bonner, Mary Lou Williams, Dollar Brand, Mal Waldron, Bob Neloms, and Roland Hanna.

Tapscott and Brand are both music magpies. Their playing sometimes wanders, and they like to weave in different musics and modes into their improvisations, but Tapscott is more "classical" and Brand favors blues and spirituals.

Neloms has a tight, spidery style. Precise. Wish he recorded more.

I really like Williams' 60s and 70s stuff. Everyone who likes jazz piano should listen to Zoning.

Weird, I was just listening to Zoning like an hour ago. Great record.

Always found it random that she put out records on folkways, wonder what the back story is.

Unrelated, I'm a huge stan of the Mehldau solo on this vid (comes right after Redman stops stupidly squeaking and squawking around 5:12)
