Jazz Trumpet Musicians / Unidentified Music -- Miles Davis or not?
« Last post by iconkid on September 06, 2017, 11:55:35 PM »
I'm trying to learn the identity of a piece of Jazz music I recorded off the radio in New York City thirty years ago.  Some folks think it's Miles Davis with one of his bands, and some think it's not, but no one has been able to tell me with certainty who it is.  Many people have listened to this clip including a few Jazz experts and they are all stumped.  I thought it was a unique version of "Tutu" because it uses the same lumbering 3-note bass riff thoughtout much of the piece as well as having a break where the trumpet brings up the tension with six ascending notes.  Other people have agreed with me that the base riff and the break are essentially the same while the stuff inbetween is quite different.  I remember the DJ announce the piece as "Tutu" on WBLS Sunday Classics (New York City).  I contacted the station and was told that, if the album was ever there, it was probably in Hal Jackson's personal record stash which they threw away after Hal passed on.  The experts at Miles' official web site say it's not him.  I've sent queries on this to several Jazz Music forums and dozens of Jazz radio stations across the country, and everyone is stumpted on where this music came from.  I've even tried contacting some of the musicians who worked with Miles such as Marcus Miller and Wallace Roney (through their web pages) but it seems that they're too aloof to respond.

Please listen to the 2-minute 40-second portion I captured, which I've posted on YouTube.  Can anyone make a guess as to who any of the musicians are.  (this sound sample also skips a bit.  There's an explanation for that but it's a long one).  External links are not allowed on this site.  To listen to the sound clip you'll have to go to my YouTube channel "caddyjoint96" and play the video entitled "Miles Davis."

Music Love / Geoff Alpert Releases Groovy New Jazz Funk Album, Open Your Heart
« Last post by greendarts on April 18, 2017, 05:41:59 PM »
Being a self taught trombone player, Alpert spent many years perfecting his sound. He played tirelessly for years, but then took a break from his playing in the early 80’s to be a devoted father and husband. After the painful passing of his wife in 2002, he went back to his roots and picked up the trombone once again and used the music as a vessel to convey his emotions.

His newest album “Open Your Heart” comes at you with a mix of jazz, pop, R&B, funk and Latin sounds that can speak to anybody who listens. The album highlights Alpert’s exceptional trombone playing, which is something that you don’t hear regularly. The album will be sure to keep you up on your feet and dancing along to the wonderful sounds.

You can listen to the beautiful collection of ten songs on iTunes here: bit(.)ly/GA-iTunes, CD Baby here: bit(.)ly/GA-CDBaby and Amazon here: bit(.)ly/GA-Amazon.

Be sure to keep up with Geoff on his official website www(.)geoffalpert(.)com for any updates.
