    I have this thread going on another forum that I belong to and over the four years that it's been active, it has provided a ton of exposure to music that I/we may never have heard otherwise. I was thinking that DFO would be the perfect place to get another one rolling.

    Tell us what you've been enjoying lately; revisiting old favorites, new bands or artists that you've discovered, shows that you've attended, etc.

    I've been bored lately so I dug deep into my collection and pulled out Liquid Jesus "Pour In the Sky" with John Molo on drums.



    And Robert Plant's "Shaken n' Stirred" with the great Richie Hayward.

    Right now, I'm listening to Maynard Ferguson's "Brass Attitude".

    However, a "newer" band that I like and have been listening to a lot lately is Five Finger Death Punch.

    Right now listening to Rival Sons. Actually first heard about them on this forum. Really like the singer and guitarist. Best newer rock band I have heard in some time. Whoever here previously recommended them, Thanks :)

    Rival Sons are awesome.

    I've been listening to lots of Pelican--all instrumental from Chicago. I can listen at work and not be bothered by words.

    Mary Lou Williams, her mid-40s period. Just listen to the first strains of this vid, filmed towards the end of her career. The woman was amazing:



    She could (and did) draw on ever decade of jazz, because she'd lived through it all. In theory, her time was the 1930s, when she became one of the top arrangers of her generation. However, she never let the grass grow under her feet. A number of her contemporaries from the Swing scene also moved with the times. Earl Hines and Gene Krupa spring to mind. Both changed their styles in the post-Bop environment. However, you'd be hard pressed to call either of them innovators by that point in their careers (not that it mattered, both were great musicians). Mary Lou Williams on the other hand, was ahead of her time. During the 40s she became a mentor to the Bebop generation, and held court to the likes of Monk, Bud Powell and Dizzy. Hardly surprising when you listen to how harmonically advanced she was at that stage of her life. in her 40s recordings you hear snatches of quartal harmony 20 years before McCoy Tyner made it fashionable. Towards the end of her days she could do everything from contemporary to ragtime, all in the course of one tune, yet she never lost that amazing sense of Swing she grew up with. That's something that Marion McParland picked up on during Williams' appearance on Piano Jazz.

    Sorry for droning on...I guess she's my favourite musician at the moment.

    That's a nice list. Inspired me to dig up Something Cool by June Christie...if that doesn't melt your heart, you're a better man than I.
