Charlie Mariano / Ali Haurand / Daniel Humair - Genève 1999

Charlie Mariano was one of the sad losses of the past year. He seemed to go on forever though, and I'm grateful for all the music he left us! Among his finest later efforts was a great Enja released titled "Deep in a Dream" - recommended!

Recently, Enja reissued Eberhard Weber's Colours albums, with Charlie, Rainer Brüninghaus, and drummers John Marshall and Jon Christensen (one at the time).

Charlie Mariano on AAJ

I shared a 2002 concert with his electric backing band and some guests from all over the world last year, and I have two more shows ready. Here's the first of them, a stellar trio with one of my favourite drummers, Daniel Humair, and Ali Haurand on bass. It comes from a dime download (thanks to jazzrita who shared it there!), and it was fine enough for me to edit it in order to get rid of all the disturbing radio chatter between the songs.

Thanks. Charlie's discography is certainly robust, 60+ years of sessions to check out.

Thank you, thank you! This trio's Konnex recording is one of my favorites of Mariano.
