Sorry for the lack of posts recently but this past week I have been really sick and my headphones broke making it hard to listen to anything new that's come out. I'm only posting things I know are good or have been waiting for, once I get new headphones this weekend I'll go through a bunch of the new music I have and post it all.

Modern Jazz Quartet - Dedicated To Connie

This two-disc set was released in 1995 following the death of drummer Connie Kay, and it's a superb commemoration of the Modern Jazz Quartet at their creative peak, a 1960 concert in Ljubljana, Slovenia, from the same tour that produced the equally memorable European Concert. By 1960, the group had gelled superbly, and much of their essential, original repertoire was in place, including John Lewis's composition "Odds Against Tomorrow," the moody and profound theme from a film score, and the light, baroque-influenced pieces "Colombine" and "Pulcinella." What stands out is the acute consciousness of sound, in Kay's sparkling drumming and Percy Heath's warmly resonant bass, as well as Lewis's piano and Milt Jackson's vibraphone. There's a superb economy of means practiced by the entire band, with scarcely a superfluous note in the two hours of music heard here. The treatments of standards are as memorable as the originals. --Stuart Broomer

Milt Jackson - vibraphone
John Lewis - piano
Percy Heath - bass
Connie Kay - Drums

Else on Bandcamp

Genre names I hate

goth hop

Witch House, seriously what the fuck is witch house and how in the fuck does it describe anything? This has been bothering me for a while I'm also just pissed off that I have a midterm the night Salem is playing NYC.

Aeroplane - Superstar

This is a really weird video but it looks like it was probably a lot of fun to make, the song on the other hand I'm not much a fan of.
This is soo good.
