I would be interested to know if anyone out there in "XX" land knows Geri Allen ?

I have many of her albums and went to see her again last Saturday as part of the London Jazz festival. Another great evening with David Murray (awesome sax in the mould of Ornette Coleman) and Terri Lyn Carrington (drums) a long time collaborator of Geri Allen.

So Geri Allen is one of the greatest living jazz musicians. Her piano playing is up their with the very greatest of Jazz musicians alive or dead. IMHO that is of course. She is well known in the US but not many seem to know her this side of the Atlantic.

So do you any of you know her?  if you don't and you are into the highest quality of Jazz then you need to investigate again IMHO.

Cheers

Yes, well, I agree the XX crowd seems to mainly discuss older non-jazz and non classical music (although I remember Manni talking about listening to classical music). I agree that it would be nice to have more feedback on Jazz and good classical recordings. Especially the classical recordings, would be good to share info on exceptional recordings since there are so many bad recordings out there when it comes to classical music. Usually the good recordings seem to be not very interesting from a musical standpoint whereas musically interesting recordings are often old or just plain bad.
