Ron Carter, Herbie Hancock, Tony Williams - Third Plane

Some highly pleasurable excursions from these three, who previously got their ya-ya's out as members of Miles' second quintet. Vibes to contemplate by.

Hi there! Repost from Microphones in the Trees

Happy new year, folks. No new albums to post at the moment, but I noticed that Microphones in the Trees posted a review of the new album by Baltimore natives Rod Hamilton and Tiffany Seal, "Versatile Ambience." Thought I'd add my praise to the solid review from MitT; I've had the pleasure of seeing Rod perform many times over the years, and his new collaborations with Tiffany are breathtakingly lovely. Really happy to see/hear an album's worth of these tunes emerge. Please check out their music here and buy a copy of the tape!

Here's a video of Rod and Tiffany doing what they do, inimitably, at an iteration of a yearly art showcase I put on w/ friends in the Baltimore area:
