On this cool, pleasant Sunday Music Muse Day there; nothing to do but take care of routine chores. like grocery shopping at Wegmans, having a light lunch, then settling in with some good afternoon music. First up is Jack Dejohnette Selected Recording, this ECM release is part of a series of 20 Selected Recordings CDs by artists associatedwith the well known and respected label. All the music on each is selected by the artist from their ECM recordings., as a leader, or sideman. One CD worth of music is just the tip of the iceberg of the great music Dejohnette, and the other artists, have recorded for ECM. Luckily, I already won a lot of it, as he is one of my favorite modern drummers.

This Sunday Music Muse Day find our area experiencing varying weather from quick moving thunderstorms under severe storm warning to period period bright sunshines. I'll be enjoying these CDs during it all. First up is Gerry Gibbs Thrasher Dream Trio We're Back. It's a concept album of Jazz Interpretations of his favorite R&B tunes from the 60's and 70's, including several by Steve Wonder, and Earth, Wind, and Fire. I can't say I'm totally into this but it's an enjoyable casual listen. It may lean too far toward smooth jazz for my taste.

This Sunday Music Muse Day find me on the last day of vacation time. I started the day volunteering, with Lisa, at the Jazz 90.1 booth at the East Ave Art Festival. That was fun with plenty of people watching. Now I'm relaxing with some afternoon jazz. First up is Emily Remler East to Wes, a excellent straight ahead jazz set by the late guitarist recorded in 1988, joined by a stellar cast of sidemen. Definitely an artist who left us way too so.
