Two rather contrasting recordings highlight this episode: Dan Weiss with his trio augmented by a second bassist and Rubberband, the once-shelved and now revived release from Miles Davis which was recorded after he had left Columbia. On Weiss' album, he displays the chops (often with heavy rock influences) that make him such a high-in-demand player, while Davis jumped into soul and R&B; he planned to use singers like Al Jarreau on the album but eventually the brass at Warner Brothers said "uh, no" to the music. And so are a lot of critics today.

Music from three younger players on the current Polish scene are featured as well: saxophonists Kuba Wiecek and his trio and Jerzy Maczynski plus a hard hitting trio KaMaSz led by guitarist Marek Kadziela. There's plenty more fine music in this episode of One Man's Jazz originally heard on taintradio.org, including some John Abercrombie from an earlier recording by French drummer Olivier Le Goas.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
