The more I hear of pianist Joseph O'Connor, the more I'm convinced that we have been blessed with an extraordinarily gifted, creative musician in our very midst. (I've been listening to countless jazz pianists and other musicians both live and on record since the early sixties, and therefore feel I can spot a unique musical voice when I hear it.) O'Connor's sound and touch on the keyboard are tasteful and very much his own. In his way, O'Connor is as original as the outstanding Brad Meldhau. Naturally, I'm delighted to know he'll be recording in the ABC studios and of course I'll be purchasing his album upon release. Incidentally, I suspect somebody like Manfred Eicher would be thrilled to have Joseph O'Connor on the ECM recording roster too. He'd fit in marvellously there!
Cheers and happy listening to all,
Christopher Lynch.

Hi there, the music listings for Sunday's Jazztrack are published at this link:
http://www.abc.net.au/classic/program/jazztrack/music-listings/?date=201...

Not sure if this was 'down' for a period of time (apologies if-so), but it looks OK from our end.

Thanks for the message!

Hi Mal, same complaint as some of the above..........where is the chronological listing???? This was incredibly useful especially for anything of Keith Jarrett's, who has produced hundreds of albums. The website is not even accepting my request despite triple checking that l've ticked all boxes !!!! Veeerrry frustrating!

I would like to have the program listing for Jazz Track last Sunday, i.e. 20 April 2014. No listing is available online whatever the date. Thank you for having a look as to why listings info is not supplied.

One of the not-so-good aspects of getting older - I'm well into my sixties - is that one constantly hears of the deaths of boyhood musical and other heroes including Nelson Mandela. Therefore, I was saddened Mal to hear of the passings of Jim Hall and Chico hamilton in addition to Stan Tracey, all over the past week or so.
I forward at least to any musical tributes coming.

Hi again Mal,
As always, there was a delightful selection of music during this weekend's Jazztrack programmes.
Yet there are times when one hears a track beyond today; something that makes time stand still.
Such was the case yesterday with that closing inclusion by the Bennie Maupin Ensemble. Bennie's haunting alto flute playing emanated from another time and place - a mystical place beyond life's often grim paradigm. So impressed was the Jazzbear that he kept repeating those sounds in his head for the remainder of Sunday evening! Nothing else went on the stereo.
I know I can be a pest at times Mal, but any chance of hearing more from that intriguing album?
Further to my comment yesterday on Stan Tracey, the Dylan thomas album I had in mind was "Under Milk Wood'.
Once more, thanks for your continually outstanding efforts.
Cheers,
Christopher Lynch.

Hello Mal.
I noticed that the wonderful UK musician, Stan Tracey, has just passed away.
Will ABC Jazz be doing a feature on his life and work? I hope so.
Stan's tribute album to Dylan Thomas for starters, remains an adorable classic.
Kind regards,
Christopher Lynch.

Hi Mal,

I happened to be listening to lastnight's reply of Sunday Jazztrack and heard Emily Remler's Pocket Wes for the first time. Totally blown away. How did I missed such a wonderful jazz guitarist all these years? Thank you for introducing Remler to me.

Cheers.

Thanks Mal for the technical information concerning recording techniques, types of microphones and such during Jazztrack. Like you, I love the smooth sound via ribbon mikes. As you well know I always enjoy your programmes, but this additional detail is a further enhancement. Keep it coming please.

Hey Mal - I am sitting on the Gold Coast right now in ultra relaxed mode listening to your program - something that I used to love and which I still hear the intro to from time to time in my head - I live in Seattle nowadays and i do miss Jazz Track. So many thanks for your selections and presentation - Jazz with James on QANTAS is the only one who comes even close :)) It's been a difficult two years for me - such a solace listening to your program as I slowly enter a better and new phase.

HI Mal,

Goddam while on holidays I missed the May 12 program with the extraordinary Phronesis live in Australia, one of my current favourite jazz groups but the Listen Again has expired. Any chance of broadcasting the concert again or reinstating the Listen Again? Thanks heaps, loved the live Christian McBride and Mike Stern. Julius

Thanks so much Mal for your inclusion of the traditional Korean tune 'Arirang', by Youn Sun Nah in a recent edition of Jazztrack. Having many lovely Korean friends and relatives this provided a very meaningful, romantic interlude (lump in throat!) for me and many others.

Youn Sun Nah has emerged as one of the most innovative, multi-faceted and intriguing female singers in jazz today. In fact, she is quite impossible to categorize. Being an enthusiastic supporter of the Asian influence in jazz - in her case Korean - I've been enthralled to hear pieces from her latest album during a couple of episodes of Jazztrack. (I already own four of her albums.) Thankyou so much Mal Stanley. Please keep sharing any new music from this region of the world with us. Don't miss this remarkable lady live should she return to these shores. Recommended.
Cheers,
Christopher Lynch.

Hi Christopher, we couldn't locate the exact track at the time you mentioned (what time-zone were you listening from?), but our guess is that it was a cover of 'Desperados Under the Eaves' by Madeleine Peyroux.
Could this be the one?

Hi,
I was hoping you might be able to tell me the singer of a track; heard it at around 6.30pm, Saturday 11th May, the track was a cover of the old Warren Zevon song "Desperados under the eaves". Because it was a female vocalist one line was changed to "And I'm trying to find a boy who understands me" instead of the original "girl".

The Giacomo Gates beguiling take on the classic "All Blues" - featured during last Sunday's edition of Jazztrack - fairly took my breath away! A haunting, timeless melody combined with enchanting lyrics made time stand still for several intensely intoxicating minutes.
Many thanks Mal Stanley.
Any more coming?

Hello, there are 2 possibilities of what track was heard (in Brisbane) at around 14:40 on March 5, 2013.

If it was an up-tempo track is was:
'More Sympathy for the Drummer' by Zwingberger/Waters/Watts/Green,
from the album 'The ABC and D of Boogie Woogie' (Eagle EAGCD4885'55)

If it was a slower vocal track, it would have been:
'I Fall in Love Too Easily' by Luciana Souza
from the album 'The Book of Chet' (Sunnyside ssc 1316)

You can hear the program again and get the complete playlists here:

Thanks Mal Stanley for your excellent Jazztrack programmes this past weekend - always a pleasure to the ears.
No doubt you're a very busy chap, but if possible I'd love to hear another track or two from these albums:
Wynton Kelly - "It's All Right".
Dick Morrissey Quartet - "Storm Warning".
Cheers and thanks Mal,

You just played a Johnny Smith track from '67.

The major reason he left New York and stopped touring was not fear of the studio but to look after his then 4 year old daughter, following his wife's death. So - a decent man, too. More detail on him is here, in an article from the Colorado Springs Independent (from quite some time ago now).
http://www.csindy.com/coloradosprings/guitar-legend-johnny-smith-alive-a...

He was a fine fine player, undeservedly neglected today. Unlike many guitarists of later generations, he used sublime technique only to serve expression, not to dazzle for its own sake.

What was that middle eastern sounding piece by (I think) a West Australian outfit.

Hi there... the 'smooth French singer' played in Jazztrack was Cyrille Aimee, a French singer, now living in Brooklyn. She will be heading to Australia November, so you may catch a gig...?
The track we heard on Jazztrack was:
'Django Mort' from the album 'Junction' by the band; Hot Club of Detroit.

Thanks for listening...!

Just heard your program featuring Ken James. There was a number called Last Straw, which I immediately recognised as something else - the Cymbalism track from Drum Suite, by Manny Albam and Ernie Wilkins. I'm sure Last Straw was presented as a Ken James' original.
