    Well, he's certainly not "funky," but John Pizzarelli owns your face.

          When has swing been considered modern jazz?
          Thanks be to God for heavy metal! (But praise be to Satan.)

            How about Allan Holdsworth's more recent stuff? Try None Too Soon for some standards, and his newest one All Night Wrong for some good trio stuff. Wardenclyffe Tower and Sixteen Men of Tain are a bit more out there, but are good too.
            Hi. I'm Wilford Brimley, and I have diabetes. It hurts me to pee and it causes me to be short with my family. I can't sleep at night. The other day I stubbed my toe and took it out on the dog. And two weeks ago I ran out of vanilla ice cream and struck my wife. Then I find out my wife's been dead for 6 years. Who the hell did I hit?!?!

              Wow... I've been to the MBase site before, but I hadn't checked out the Tao album. Incredible! I love the at about 11:40 on the first track when the drummer does the 3:4 stuff.

                Well, he's "current." Current is kind of like "modern."

                      I got no kick against modern jazz, unless they try to play it to darn fast...

                          All about jazz review

                          This review is absolutely enthusiastic... Jaco is mentioned, as well as Dennis Chambers, Steve Coleman, Aka pygmies, Terry Bozzio, Gene Lake.
                          You probably should also check them out ...

                          aka moon is imho one of the very best modern jazz bands of the moment, and barely not known too...
                          read the review, buy all their cds and ask your local jazz club to invite thm to play live.. the only thing i cant hink of when i se those guys paying is "a human being juste can't play like that.."

                          if you like that, try to find the cds from the band octurn, Tribu, and Vivaces, a cd fwritten by Pierre Van dormael, the guy who teached the cell writing to Steve coleman (he also invented it..).

                              Jazz funk? Lonnie Liston Smitih, yo. He's the guy you want to listen to. Check the "Cosmic Funk" and "Astral Travelling" albums.

                              If you're digging the roots of Acid Jazz thang you should also listen to Roy Ayers' Ubiquity.

                              One good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain.
