"Jonathan Blake Gone but not Forgotten" Jonathan Blake, Ben Street, Mark Turner and Chris Potter. Great album:


If your'e ok with sax and trumpet I can also recommend Mark Turners Lathe of Heaven. Mark Turner, Avishai Cohen, Joe Martin and Marcus Gilmore. One of my favorite albums of the recent years. More "artsy" so don't know if that's what you're looking for but it's a really cool album.

"Artsy" is no problem :)
Actually, I very much enjoy the mystery that comes out of this music.

I would welcome recommendations on music projects to listen to with two saxes, bass and drums, and no harmonic comping instrument (e.g., piano, guitar, vibes, etc.).
Instead of two saxes, it could be one sax and trumpet, or maybe some other combination of two melodic instruments. The important thing is that there are two melodic voices and no harmonic comping instrument.
Thank you in advance.
That's our lineup! When we started we thought we would want a piano or guitar, but after a while we got to like the freedom and possibilities of going chordless.

I haven't reviewed all your videos. What is your lineup? Sop/alto/flute, tenor, bass, and drums?

In that case I highly recommend you to check out Lathe Of Heaven if you haven't. Mark actually talks about mystery when he talks about that album:

This is great! The writing is really intriguing, in an interesting, alluring kind of way.

We both double. I play sop/alto/tenor/flute, and she plays sop/alto/tenor, so we mix it up. Most often, though, one of us plays alto and the other tenor. Then bass and drums.
Cool. Thank you.
