  1. Past Hour
  2. R.I.P. Sue Mingus.

    Now living @ both locations .... me not a completist anymore, but this one is worth owning (probably even stronger than the other Paris 1964 concert) .... btw I do like both Grammeln and Schrammeln - from time to time 😇 ....
  3. Today
  4. Musicians - Post Your Music Here!

    Just have listened to it ! Is this synthie in studio ? Anyway, it is something I can imagine very well and it has the spirit and message of Pharoah Sanders in it. You almost can feel when Pharoah comes in and starts playing. I just imagine this on stage with a live band with piano, bass drums and percussions and maybe a small vocal group, laying down the mood for a while and then Pharoah..... he would have appreciated it ! Thanks for sharing !
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Oh yes, my almost 50 years favourite. My copy looks very very used, very old, with all them white spot´s on it, that old LP covers would have. All my LPs look that way ....
  6. Miles Davis--Kind of Blue live

    You are right: While the jazz standards and originals would get faster and faster, they few ballads got slower and slower. Is it possible, that this could have been a kind of "emancipation", I mean you get away from the original speed and feeling of a song ? In the 40´s and 50´s ballads usually where played in a "slow fox" manner. Monk kept that as long as he played until the 70´s . And if you hear the Messengers do an "Ballad Medley" it´s the same. I suppose, ballads initially were meant for singers, and no singer would do "Valentine" in such a slow tempo.
  7. R.I.P. Sue Mingus.

    From Tyrol ? Hope it´s a vacation, or did you move back ? Different Concert......might be worth listening, though I wouldn´t buy it, if I bought all them different concerts and venues where Mingus played with Dolphy and Byard 1964, I´d have to eat "Grammeln" (kennst den Spruch von anno dazumal: "5 Schilling für die Schrammeln, und morgen ess´ ma Grammeln") ......

    Glad to hear you are safe. Good luck with the mess .....
  13. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Nice Butterfield tuba on this one.
  14. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    You could say it's pretty similar to this album, which also features Leo/Idris & Lee Morgan in the same horns/organ/guitar/drums format with hits of the day. But it's no more samey to me than any number of hard bop dates with standards and tunes borrowed from bird 'n Diz. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, in either case. And while I own and enjoy both albums, I think they both did better (and worse) elsewhere.
  15. Giuseppe Pîno 1940-2022

    Oh yeah, he's fantastic. Sorry to hear the news.
  16. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Sanders winners triple-play ....
  17. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Treasure trove ....
  18. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Archie Shepp – Phat Jam In Milano (2009)
  19. Have excellent original copies of both of these - as well as both on CD. So will probably pass. On the other hand I did buy the ‘Dejeuner’ at good price for regular play copy so may do likewise if I see them similarly priced. The only negative (minor) on that one is the scanned quality of the cover art. Interesting that both of the new ones are from the Philips/Deram labels so maybe getting rights for those is proving less problematic?
