  1. Ellington Small Groups on Columbia

    @AllenLoweScrew IP ownership, you should make these available!
  2. Julius Hemphill Box Set

    For those contemplating the digital release, be aware when you buy downloads from New World you have to download each track individually tediously.
  3. New previously unissued Horace Tapscott

    Wish I could get the vinyl only Tapscott stuff as downloads.
  4. New Sam Rivers and others on No Business

    Not sure why Dusty Groove never got copies, so I am ordering straight from the label. Glad to hear they seem to have no issue getting their CDs to the US.
  5. I've listened to everything that Vol. 1 of the book covers-- can't wait to dive into the rest when Vol. 2 comes.
  6. Erik Satie's Vexations

    I like the new Noriko Ogawa recording, she varies each repetition just a little so it doesn't get boring. 80 minutes flew by in fact.
  7. Orchestras in the Pandemic era

    Baltimore Symphony has been doing hour-long streaming concerts, with interesting off the beaten path repertoire. This is Marin Alsop's last year and it's such a kick in the gut to not be able to see live music. \https://www.offstage.bsomusic.org/en/bso-sessions
  8. Lafayette Gilchrist

    Gilchrist has several archived concerts on demand from Baltimore venue An Die Musik. https://andiemusiklive.com/
  9. Happy Birthday Lester Bowie

    Lester Bowie now has a mural in Frederick, Maryland: https://www.fredericknewspost.com/music-is-medicine-new-downtown-frederick-mural-honors-jazz-legend-and-native-son/article_73d0b50a-e545-564f-aaa8-5b7811b8fbd4.html
  10. For completists only....

    Anthony Braxton and Cecil Taylor (at least official releases).
  11. Vinny Golia

    Would have seen him in Maryland in the spring if not for COVID...
  12. Creative Black Music at the Walker

    LOL, one of the ephemera they have is an interview with Cecil Taylor in the Minnesota Daily from 1979, love the exchange about Amiri Baraka at the end. I can just hear it in Taylor's arch voice too.:
  13. Creative Black Music at the Walker

    I've been on this all week. Too bad there's not more Ornette Coleman and Wadada Leo Smith (just excerpts). I'm really in love with the Braxton/Teitelbaum duet. There's three full Braxton concerts actually, the most of anyone. I was living in Minneapolis when many of the early 80s concerts happened, but alas, I wasn't very hip for a 9 year old.
  14. Bought it, haven't read it yet. I saw it had "Non-Cognitive aspects of the City" so definitely had to have it.
