    OK, I've got one: Gerald Clayton. His record "Two Shade" is one of my recent favorites.

    He sounds really great . . . but couldn't that be from 1965?

    A younger player (though probably 30ish) who is pretty phenomenal is Chris Thile.

    Richard, I don't know much about him other than Lost Tribe (with Adam Rogers) of which he was a founder and his work with Uri Caine. Like you said, it is pretty compelling music. I highly recommend Graylen Epicenter--there is a stellar list of musicians, including Chris Potter, Brian Blade, Wayne Krantz, Kenny Wollesen, and Gretchen Parlato, among others.

    @Bryan T: Gerald is a living Jazz history book who can do Herbie and then do his own thing, which is extremely funky. Tradition and innovation.

    I saw Jamie Cullum twice this month in London. The show he did at Under the Bridge, about 500 people, was one of the best shows I've ever seen. Unbelievable pianist, incredible showman, he absolutely controlled the crowd backed by fabulous musicians.

    Besides his originals, he did covers of Beatles, Hendrix, Radiohead and Beyonce.

    Mike,
    Did you ever catch "Lost Tribe" back in the day? That band had Rogers and Gilmore, right?
    What were your impressions? (if you did get to hear them)

    No, I never had the good fortune to see that band. I have heard some live recordings, though. Really a great band, one that a ton of folks here would dig.

    BTW, I just picked up Binney's latest, Barefooted town, and I really liked it, although I only listened once. Mark Turner and Ambrose Akinmusire (excellent trumpet player) are on it.

    Stunning guitar solo by Rogers at about 7:00.

    Julian Lage went to Berklee
    but quit since he had all that stuff already
    Berklee came back to him with free tuition
    and all private sessions with the very best.
    No mainstream classes.
    In exchange, they can use his name.

    Strange stuff, but for the life of me I can't get into Lage's playing. I don't know why. I know he is good, but it doesn't connect with me at all.

    On the other hand, the other Berklee "Lage", Lage Lund, I love!! Total beast. Great player. Dig him a lot....
