Can't rep this enough-- one of the greatest albums of the New Age jazz era.
I know, I know, the era is mostly crap; but a few things are really terrific. If you see a copy of this in a used bin, BUY IT.
It won't excite you, but it will add grace to your living space beyond all measure. If for some strange reason you don't like it, auction it on E-bay for a whopping profit.
This came out when I was a tween or early teen. I grew up listening to a radio station that was smooth jazz/new age, and this is one of the songs I liked. The genre still exits. People are still putting this kind of stuff out, I guess. A current local radio station has an HD2 that is a tribute to that station of my growing years. But it's obvious I never really matured with that genre. The HD2 does play smooth jazz from the 80's, but it plays the new stuff, too, which (I never thought I'd say this as a kid) is foreign to my ear.
I do listen to '80's smooth jazz/new age still on occasion (at least every month), but mainly I like a mix of 80's/early 90's popular music, indie, drone, and old jazz. Funny how far removed I am from what was an OK childhood.

Dave Brubeck -- Jazz Impressions of Eurasia (1958)
Someone needs to start an encounter group for the likes of Jarrett, Linda Ronstadt, etc...
For my money the best of both Jarrett and Dewey Redman is this album. And maybe this track, though the title track is great, and so is "Foolsofallofus'
I'm reminded of Blondie's Die Young Stay Pretty. That doesn't happen very often. I didn't grow up listening to Jarrett, but I did hear a lot of Ronstadt on the radio, and I never heard much I didn't like. Easy For You To Say is a tune I'd like to hear covered by a jazz trio + singer. Yes, TJ, I know she didn't write it...
Tony Lewis' death reminded me of some 80s tunes I'd forgotten, along with Everytime You Cry. I guess in the spirit of the thread, I should post where I ended up.
I now feel guilty that I didn't remember this when Ric Ocasek died- I would have posted it in the Music thread.
Meant to say that the news made me think of Blondie, not Jarrett/Redman. Sorry..
I got my intro to Manring through Michael Hedges' Aerial Boundaries album, where he does a great rendition of After The Gold Rush with Hedges (Manring plays the melody) and a cool trio tune called Menage A Trois with Hedges and his then wife Mindy on flute. I saw him live in some performance hall at Vanderbilt between '91 and '93. Blown away.
Here's one solo tune called Adhan. It's a performance at someone's home, I think, with an audience of likely more knowledgeable listeners who pay for admission. Sometimes a musician will do that, if the pay is right. I've posted a video or two of Bill Evans in Finland doing that.

After The Gold Rush
Three versions of the Blue Devils tuning sequences. I'm a big fan of these- the tempo difference between horns and percussion just appeals to me.
Horns and percission
If you don't wanna hear arpeggios, just go straight to 1:16. It gets cool there.

42 yeas ago tonight, moviegoers in Kansas City, Missouri, attended the premiere of John Carpenter's low-budget horror film, 'Halloween'.
Red Hot Chili Peppers-Monarchy of Roses.
Love it. I was a fairly big slasher film fan BITD. Halloween 1, 2 & 3, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Scanners, Happy Birthday To Me, the premieres of both Friday the 13th and Nightmare On Elm Street, Fright Night, and a few others that were too generic for me to recall.
