    I think we can work on that. Next time you're in Poland just let me know cause I have an access to a quite nice drumset (who knows - maybe even marimba). So be careful with your wishes, Intet 'cause this one may work .


    And about Petrucciani. When I first heard him I had no idea about his disability. I found out 'bout that much later. But did that make him less talented than he really was? Absolutely not. No matter what - when he approached the piano all disabilities simply disappeared. Amazing.

    "Best of the West" by Charlie Haden.

    Corno Dolce, respect on your choice, another master on the double bass.

    "American Dreams" Gitanes Jazz, Universal Music, France 2002 feat. Charlie Haden (double bass), Brad Mehldau (piano), the late Michael Brecker (tenor saxophone), Brian Blade (drums) and The 34 Piece Orchestra (the name of the orchstra).

    Charlie Haden with a very abusive past from drugs abuse, while still young in the 1960´s. Took him almost 6 years to clean up and get back to jazz, composing and playing. With Keith Jarrett´s The American Quartet feat. Dewey Redman (tenor saxophone, chinese musette, percussion) and Paul Motian (drums and percussion) for a number of years.

    There are two albums with this outfit that I absolutely adore "The Survivors Suite" and "Eyes Of The Heart", both thse albums from www.ecm.com 1977.

    CH has performed with all the giants in jazz, beginning with The Ornette Coleman Quartet and in recent years solo in his own name. Pat Metheny had CH playing on the album "80/81" with Michael Brecker, Dewey Redman (two of the very best tenor saxophone players at the time) and then Mr. Drtums unlimited Jack DeJohnette - to wrap it all in.

    CH has had the big band - The Liberation Music Orchestra for years with different musicians. He also often play with the Carla Bley/Stewe Swallow Big Band.

    Charlie Haden one of the very few musicians, who actually made a song called "Silence". I prefer the song from Egberto Gismonti´s album "Folk Songs", The trio Gismonti (acoustic 8 and 10 string guitars, piano), Jan Garbarek (tenor and soprano saxophone) and CH.

    Glad you´re in to Charlie Haden as well Corno Dolce.

    He had a quartet called "Quartet West" with Alan Broadbent (piano), Ernie Watts (tenor saxophone) and Larance Marable (drums) - 5 albums in all. Some of them with a String Orchestra.

    CH has had the big band - The Liberation Music Orchestra for years with different musicians, very political band, and Charlie haden has never kept his mouth shut when talking politics, like Pat Metheny. He also often play with the Carla Bley/Stewe Swallow Big Band.

    Charlie Haden made a duo album with Pat Metheny, can´t recall the title though.

    Glad you´re in to Charlie Haden as well Corno Dolce.

    I had an old vinyl record once (someone might have mistaken it for a freesbee, it´s gone to vinyl heaven), can´t remember the title though, where the front cover shows Michel Petrucciani sitting on the left arm of the amrican drummer Elliot Zigmund. I believe if my memory serves me right, it was the swedish double bass player Palle Danielsson, who was the third guy in the trio.

    His disability from birth was among other things that he did not grow as ordinary people. He was the size of a midget, but as far as I know not the same identical disability. But sitting behind the piano, on his special manufactored stool - there was no difference towards other truely great pianists in the world, he could realy make any trio or band swing.

    So though he had this disability, passed on unfortunately to one of his sons, he could realy play the piano. He wanted to become a concert pianist, but different teachers told him he would never make it. Then he found the jazz piano, not even 20 years of age. Most giants in jazz acknowledged and credited him as someone they "needed" to play with, if he would only give them the chance. The american guitarist John Abercrombie spoke very highly of MP and participated on two albums by MP.

    What not many people know about MP is he was the prime motor and mentor to move Charles Lloyd (tenor saxophone, flute) to return to the jazz stage, recording and performing again after years on end not being active.

    Michel Petrucciani showed the world of jazz music and himself that a physical disability does not mean, you can´t play an instrument, and do it as well as the next guy on any world stage. I have the following albums by MP:

    "Michel Petrucciani"
    "Michel Plays Petrucciani"
    "Trio Pianism"
    "Power of Three"
    "Live"
    "Music"
    "Promenade with Duke" - solo piano.
    "Playground"
    "Marvelous"

    I believe MP preferred the small jazz trio.

    Cromaticism,

    Nice choice on the endless list of Chick Corea albums. This one you chose from the Electric Band era, released by GRP Records 1988 - Feat. CC (piano, keyboards, synthezisers), John Novello (additional synthezisers), Frank Gambale (guitars), Eric Marienthal (saxophones), John Patitucci (double bass, el. 5-6 string basses) and of course the monster drummer the awesome Dave Weckl behind the kit.

    Cromaticism, are you a convinced Chick Corea addict? Like your´s truely, except for CC´s personal believes and belonging to the Scientology Church, orchestrated by L. Ron Hubbard, who in the late 1970´s was on the "wanted" list for questioning by the FBI, USA? I believe it was on charges due to taxavation?

    John Abercrombie (guitars) / Dave Hollland (double bass) / Jack DeJohnette (drums, percussion) equals the group Gateway on the album Gateway 1, ECM records 1975.

    If only one could play like any of these three gentlemen on each their instruments, long time members of the ECM catalog, I would be playing Jazz actively.

    Jazz before dinner saturday evening, the album "Inferno - 150 MpH", by one of the greatest drummers for decades Mr. Louie Bellson and his Big Band. The album was first released in 1974.

    Among class act drummers even today his snare-drum, high-hat and cymbals work have no comparison in the world.
