Fuck, I didn't even know they had a new one out. Is it an album or a mixtape? Can't find a download link

I believe it is an album, but that can be fluid. BBNG2 was a free mixtape for a while but there is a vinyl release for it now. I'm guessing this one will be sold from the jump.

Songs.to has been delivering on the stream front for me lately and it did in this instance as well. Good quality too.

I didn't know they had a new one coming either.

They're insanely good live as well.

Heard this today. Some quite beautiful trumpeting from Miles.

But that's not actually on Bitches Brew, is it?

No, looks like it's on Big Fun. Pretty much all the youtube links imply that it's on Bitches Brew, which is weird.

A lot of those Big Fun tracks have appeared as bonuses on various editions of Bitches Brew. All Big Fun tracks came from the BB sessions, I believe.

So this guy Kamasi Washington, you've probably never heard of him. But I suspect you may soon, if you finish this post.

He just dropped a 2 hour, 45 minute jazz fusion record appropriately titled The Epic and it's actually really fucking terrific and worth every second. Some people are hyping it up as a modern day Bitches Brew but that's really quite lazy. This is a much more traditional, song-oriented record without long stretches of experimentation and there are even some vocal jazz tracks mixed in. It definitely keeps you entertained all the way through. Anyone who likes jazz needs to hear it.

Here's a track from it, which is 14 minutes but actually quite a small sample relative to the length of the album:

He's on Brainfeeder, and played on To Pimp a Butterfly. Will definitely be checking this out. I just listened to Bitches Brew tonight, funnily enough.

Yeah, it was smart of him to have an album waiting in the wings so closely after To Pimp a Butterfly. I hope he gains some exposure, because he deserves it.

Very cool - thanks for sharing. This is a nice throwback to the late-60s; reminds me of Miles' Second Quintet and some of the associated acts (Shorter, Carter, etc) that came out of it. I'll be sure to check out the album proper.

Ornette Coleman, a true legend, has passed. Here's a good piece on him:

It's time:

I'll periodically update with my thoughts. Thus far, "Change of the Guard" owns my soul. So....1/1...best album of all time.
