Today Jeff shared with us one of his favorite albums: Timeless by John Abercrombie. Recorded in June of 1974 with John on guitar, Jan Hammer on piano and organ, and Jack DeJohnette on drums, it was a lovely, peaceful soundtrack to the snow falling outside our office window.
When naming the album “Timeless” Mr. Abercrombie really hit the nail on the head; nearly 40 years later it more than holds up. We particularly enjoyed “Love Song, a beautiful and soulful, improvised tune. Check it out below.
Our in-house jazz guru Jeff has a great Music Monday pick this morning – Chick Corea‘s amazing avant-garde rendition of My One and Only Love. This social advocate was one of the primary musicians involved in the jazz fushion movement as part of Miles Davis’ band during the 1960s. If you want to see the master live, you’re in luck. He’s playing at Roosevelt University on April 5, 2014 with Bela Fleck – tickets go on sale December 6th HERE. Enjoy!
