Sunday Music Muse Day - Dino Losito & Mike Melito, Dave Holland Quintet

This week's Sunday Music Muse Day selections have one thing in common and that is being released about the same year, 2001. 2002. Both sound as fresh as if recorded yesterday.  First up is pianist Dino Losito Like That, with Neil Miner on bass, and my friend Mike Melito on drums. This a nice straight ahead session and you could call The Mike Melito/Dino Losito Quartet 2020 release a follow up.  I'm glad I found to this earlier recording. There's a lot to enjoy in this. Lets hope we don't have to wait another twenty years for the next one.

My second twenty year old selection is Dave Holland Quintet Not for Nothing. This outing by the well-known and respected bassist, has online reviewer giving it 4 1/2 out of 5 start and calling it "progressive postbopism" and "postmodern poetic singing" - Tom Jurek - All Music. This is definitely adventurous music and engaging jazz.  Well worth giving it a listen.

It seems spring has finally arrived, with clear skies and pleasant weather giving us lot of opportunity to get outside for so fresh air.  But there still will be plenty to sit back and enjoy some tune.
