Murmurs of Earth - Voyager Interstellar Record (1978)

Este disco anda por ahí sonando en el espacio. Se mandó en la Voyager junto con algunas fotos y más cosas de este mundo por si algún ser de otro planeta se topaba con ello. Si así fuese y pudiera percibir con sus sentidos el contenido, se haría una idea del lugar que habitamos y sus inquilinos. (Cuanto mal hizo el tocadiscos, podrían haber contratado una banda)

The Best Blue Note Album In The World...Ever ! (1999)

The Best Blue Note Album in the World Ever may boast a silly title, but it's hard to argue with what's on this double-disc sampler. Not all of the label's greatest artists are here, but everything is representative, showing how hard bop like John Coltrane's "Blue Train" and Lee Morgan's "The Sidewinder" coexisted with soul-jazz from Grant Green ("Born to Be Blue"), Jimmy Smith ("Back at the Chickenshack"), and Horace Silver ("Song for My Father"). It is true that US3's "Cantaloop" sounds distinctly out of place here and that the latter-day stuff, no matter how good it is, isn't quite as magical as the classic era, but there's no denying that The Best Blue Note Album in the World Ever provides a lot of bang for the buck.

Ken Burns Jazz: The Story of America's Music (BOX 5CD's)

In conjunction with documentary filmmaker Ken Burns' ten-part 2000 PBS special, Columbia/Legacy and Verve teamed up to issue a special series of reissues covering much of the history of 20th century jazz. The central release of this program is the five-CD box set Ken Burns Jazz: The Story of America's Music, its 94 selections covering the history of 20th century jazz, from 1917 to the mid-'90s. Chronologically, the set is very skewed toward the first 50 years of that time span; there is only just under a CD's worth of music dating from after the mid-'60s. What's here is a very good range of classic jazz from throughout the decades, touching upon performances, many acknowledged classics, from many of the music's giants: Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Billie Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, and up toWynton Marsalis and Cassandra Wilson. There are just a few dubious incl…

El Groove

Un buen ejercicio para asentar el buen groove es el que nos presenta John Riley en su vídeo método "The Master Drummer" Pág 6. Con la práctica de este ejercicio pasamos por muchas de la variantes que se pueden hacer swingueando sobre el ride. En este vídeo añado un tresillo en la mano izquierda como base para más adelante restar notas y tocar frases con sentido, siempre intentando no perder el groove cuando hagamos las variaciones en el ride.
