  1. Bandcamp waiving fees on Friday

    Not sure I'm getting the email for these fridays any more - can't understand why. My mistake maybe. I'll 'follow' this thread....
  2. All Things Hat

    Oops. Somebody tell them - quick!
  3. Happy 100th Birthday Charlie Parker!

    Still so much to celebrate!
  4. Mike Westbrook

    The recent one. Sampled and ordered via Bandcamp.
  5. Mike Westbrook

    Cool. I’ve ordered the CD so fingers crossed.
  6. Mike Westbrook

    Have you heard the new reissue? I’m hoping the sound is at least ok...
  7. Great Northern Playlist

    Orchestral! https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p08nf6m5 [mainly of local interest] [versions of Tainted Love, Relax, etc] [for lovers of light music]
  8. Roscoe Mitchell recommendations

    Hm yes. That’s a US label of which I’ve got very low awareness. The only one of theirs I knew about was Guerrilla Mosaics, which we discussed here when it came out.
  9. Roscoe Mitchell recommendations

    Ah yes! I’d forgotten about Pi. I actually have two of those. Wide Hive I was not aware of as a label even though I’d been streaming Conversations 1 and 2. The Roguearts have been distributed over here (I still doubt the policy of making all releases look the same...). Let’s not forget the Otoruko! I agree with Jim though. Like with most contemporary recordings, you need to grab it when you see it. I do know there’s plenty of recordings of his stuff, just still find it remarkable that someone who’s at the top like that for so long is more sustained in Europe.
  10. Roscoe Mitchell recommendations

    He seems to have been under-served by US labels. Without Chuck Nessa there’d hardly be anything.
  11. Roscoe Mitchell recommendations

    Well the Delmark I know of course. Didn’t know about Wide Hive label.
  12. Roscoe Mitchell recommendations

    Same for Victo.
  13. Roscoe Mitchell recommendations

    Was that one the final Nessa release? Also trying to remember which (other) US labels have issued Roscoe’s stuff.
  14. Stone cold classic tracks post-Coltrane

    By post-Coltrane I meant after his death. I was struggling to think for me what was just so permanently present and note-by-note glorious so that I’d say to anybody yes, this is it. So I thought I’d see what other folks have in that category. So far we haven’t come too far away from Coltrane! 😉
  15. Stone cold classic tracks post-Coltrane

    I’m assuming there’s a known canon up to the death of Coltrane, and after that I’m not sure. Not favorite track but stone cold classic that you’d put up there with MFT. Is there anything?
