“Where Are You From Today” (Lyle Mays)

Lyle Mays (piano), Marc Johnson (double bass), Jack DeJohnette (drums)

(From the album “Fictionary”)

Beautiful, lush ballad by an amazing trio. Lyle Mays is such an underrated jazz pianist… simply one of the best around.

Egberto Gismonti - Coracao 

After his 1976 debut on ECM, the stunning Danca Das Cabecas with percussionist Naná Vasconcelos, Gismonti returned the following year with this impressive combo outing. Actually, the album consists of a mix of solo pieces and cuts with various partners, in both duo and trio formats. He penned all the material and shines throughout. The guests do the same, with special mention going to guitarist Ralph Towner, percussionist Colin Walcott, tenor saxophonist Jan Garbarek, and Vasconcelos. Highly recommended.

TEDxCiudadDelSaber - Danilo Pérez - Change and Interchange in Global Jazz

In this compelling personal story, Grammy award pianist and global jazz ambassador, Danilo Perez shares his experiences and lessons from his father's unorthodox use of music as a studying tool for many academic subjects as a child, to the surprising lessons learned from colaborating with jazz legends as a consolidated artist. These experiences gathered throughout his long carrer have led him to the firm conviction that global jazz has the power to break down barriers in the global dialogue while at the same time creating life changing opportunities for individuals to overcome the obstacles of poverty. In thespirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
