  1. Past Hour
  2. The ITC Logo - Edwin Astley

    And I'm eager to get your feedback on all 6 songs that "Ted" orchestrated for his son-in-law. I doubt many Who fans even know of them, and probably not even half of fans who profess to like Pete's solo work either. A couple of them are pretty unconventional too, particularly "Football Fugue". I barely have 3-4 Who albums, all expanded CD-reissues with bonus material with key Pete-only demos, and the like. Whereas I have about half to 2/3rds of Pete's entire solo catalog on CD, and even a few solo things that haven't ever been on CD. And these few obscure orchestral songs of his (the only versions of these particular tunes that he's ever recorded, far as I know), are among my favorites out of his entire solo catalog.
  3. I also saw some on eBay but not as nicely priced as Dan's
  4. Bruno Ganz (1941 - 2019)

    What a shame. Wings of Desire is one of my favorite movies and I recently saw American Friend. I think more of him in those movies than his portrayal of Hitler, which was quite amazing as well. RIP.
  5. Doug Hammond

    Interest figure -- a missing link whose rhythmic ideas had a big impact on Dave Holland and especially Steve Coleman. For my book I interviewed him about his time in Detroit -- 1965-1971 -- when he was involved with a little-known but important self-determination organization called the Detroit Creative Musicians Association and an exploratory band called Focus Novii, which also included James Blood Ulmer. (The book, "Jazz from Detroit," will be published July 8 by the University of Michigan Press.)
  6. "Gimme Some Of That Ol' Atonal Music'

    Chuck said it best: "Why the opposition? If you don't like it, leave it alone." Trolls are best ignored.
  7. Anyone else like the label Red Records?

    I have most of their catalogue, all Giovanni Tommaso's records are excellent, if you don't know him.
  8. Bruno Ganz (1941 - 2019)

    An astonishing performance - RIP.
  9. Bruno Ganz (1941 - 2019)

    Superb actor. .. He was awesome in Wim Wenders 'American Friend' and 'Wings of Desire' not to mention his interprétation of Hitler.

  14. Anyone else like the label Red Records?

    Sal Nistico's Empty Bed is a must-have IMHO. There were two Jim Snidero releases I've had for years and years, been a long time since I listened but I am sure they were very enjoyable. Awhile ago I bought a comp I think it was titled Hard Bop Today or something similar. It seemed the only way to hear the Stafford James Ensemble which included Frank Strozier and Harold Mabern in the band. That one still seems very hard to locate.
  15. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    it came today: i havent been getting every upgrade (or any upgrades) but this one i immediately needed- i do wish that instead of the extra sets of notes (musican notes / critic notes)--- the archivist notes were the best, i wish the could of included a photograph of the tape reel, that would of been good

  19. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    UK Vogue 2LP. Compiles several Med Flory and Herb Geller releases. This ‘West Coast Scene’ series was a good one ! The first side of 4 Jubilee LPs is in this set. According to Alun Morgan’s notes the intention was for another volume collating the second sides. Never happened, by the look of it.
