We all have our favorites, but I'm wondering which of your favorites rarely, if ever, disappoint you on records or in concert?
For me, it seems anything Joe Locke
releases or plays on, sounds great. His latest, Love is a Pendulum
(Motema, 2015), already has a seat assignment on my best of 2015 list and I still occasionally dip into his older recordings like Mutual Admiration Society
(Sharp Nine, 1999) and Sound Tracks
(Milestone, 1997). Thanks for all the great music, Joe!
I'm also a fan of Antonio Sanchez
. Love him with Pat Metheny
, and he's on a roll with his CAM Jazz releases: The Meridian Suite
(2015), Three Times Three
(2015), New Life
(2013) and Migration
(2007). Strong compositions and an exciting sound that keeps you coming back for more.
Joe Locke and Antonio Sanchez are two of my faves who consistently produce outstanding music. Who are yours?
