This blog covers the music I play on my Live365 station: Jazz Note NSU. It is devoted to hard bop and avant garde jazz. Here I confess my faith: the center of genius in modern music is jazz; the center of genius in jazz is hard bop, and especially the body of music produced between the early 50's and the mid-60's. And at the center of it all is Miles Davis. This blog is especially aimed at readers who want to build a serious jazz library.

Old and New Dreams
I am playing 'Law Years' from A Tribute to Blackwell.
This group consists of Ornette Coleman alumni and their work is a tribute to that master of inventive genius. I have long admired the composition, from Coleman's superb Science Fiction Sessions. I think I will post the original. Enjoy.
