    This song is called "Topsy". It's been done by numerous artists through the years. Can there be anything better than Django? The answer is, No.

    Sick bastards!

    And that Travis Carlton on the bass?

    A chip off the old block.

    Al Pacino on drums.

    Robben is playing his Taku Sakashta Noupaul.

    Larry takes a back seat and lets him riff on it.

    Travis holds it down like a mofo.

    Al Pacino keeps playing like the animal he is.

    If this doesn't make you cry, you have no soul.

    This is Jazz!

    Don't stop listening till you have heard Travis's bass solo.

    Kurt Rosewinkel, anyone? Some folks think he's too "Berklee", but I dig him. My favourite album is Star Of Jupiter, but his album with a big band, Our Secret World, is great, too. His latest album Caipi is awful. He tries to sing o_O Shut up and play yer guitar!

    "I'll Remember April" is great song done in many versions by many different artists, with vocals and without. I like this one.

    Brownie and Max! Pure joy.



    Drums as a melody instrument! Swing and groove as a weapon.

    This is a bit of a departure, but "Duke Ellington's All-Star Road Band" is mine. It's Ellington's band recorded one night on the road in Pennsylvania in 1957 - nothing special or historical, just a hot band swinging hard in front of a hot crowd out to have fun. The piano is slightly out of tune and there are a few miscues and clams, but it puts Duke in a completely different context for me. Not as a genius arranger, but as a band leader (and piano player) showing up in your small town and putting on a hell of a show.

    On the intro, it sounds like he's using a the Gibson Maestro™ unit to get those sub-octave tones.

    Maybe, I'm too main stream, but Django's "Manor de mes Reves" (Django's Castle) is my favorite when I think gypsy jazz.

    Eberhard Weber is talent who should be recognized. He has many atmospheric excursions worth a listen. Great tone from this Bass player. He is a good composer too.

    I am satisfied that Ed Bickert was menitoned already. Django's Topsy, too!
    For me, it would be Django's Night and Day from the electric years, I think 1953.

    And above, all, the incredible entire "Still Life (Talking)" by Pat Metheny:

    got a tuxedo gig coming up, so Blossom Dearie hits the spot



    Jo Jones, Ray Brown, Herb Ellis -- how can you go wrong? she also recorded with Ed Thigpen and Kenny Burrell



    for me, Ray Brown is the thread: I'm woodshedding on him hard
