hehe. I get it.

Charlie Parker for power
Bill Evans for technique
Coltrane for endurance

You could take pump me up jazz too, like The Bad Plus or something close! I think that a Chris Potter would be good for a day in the gym.
It's been a long time since the last jazz discussion here... I bougth recently an old Charles Lloyd "Forest Flower", super good! (I'm partial, I love Lloyd...) :D

Yo, Camhead,

You sayin' you know something 'bout Bill Evans? How so? I thought it was all Z Z Tops (I love them incidentally, especially Mescalero, the new one) down in Texas.

Yeah Largo, I really dig Bill Evans. He was (and is) the epitome of taste and subtlety in improvisation and composition. Why play one hundred notes when two will do? Kind of the antithesis of the Art Tatum-Oscar Peterson school. Lastely, as I've gotten further from actually playing and practicing bebop phrases, I've actually found myself listening to much more subtle music. More Jobim, more Lester Young, sometimes more Davis, and definitely more Evans.

And who the hell is ZZtop?

Okay, you know-it-alls, there are two must-have Bill Evans discs: Bill Evans Trio Sunday at the Village Vanguard, and Waltz for Debby, Bill Evas Trio, both on the Riverside label. Both albums were recorded at the Vanguard on 6-25-61.

Devine, by any measure.

ahem.

as a 'real' texan, i would like to point out that camhead merely has a temporary student visa to visit our great state so his opinions and insights are not reflective of the general population.
