R.I.P., Astrud Gilberto—one of the most ethereal & beautiful of all singers, IMO. 🎶

Current listening: Danish Rain, the new album from a duet of wonderful musicians: pianist Justin Kauflin and bassist Thomas Fonnesbæk. 🎶

Current listening: Brian Blade, Mama Rosa.

I’ve loved this singer-songwriter-Gospel album from a world-class jazz drummer. 🎶

R.I.P. Ahmad Jamal, one of the greatest and perhaps my absolute favorite jazz pianist.

My dad used to play “Stolen Moments” at night while I was going to sleep. I’ve loved Jamal ever since. 🎶 🔗

Blue Note Records is absolutely crushing it lately: Julian Lage, Charles Lloyd’s trio of trios, Bill Frisell’s new quartet, Gerald Clayton’s Bells on Sand, Ethan Iverson’s Every Note is True: seems like all my fav new albums are Blue Note.

And this week, new Walter Smith III and Kendrick Scott. 🎵
