  1. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    This should be a good one:
  2. New Sam Rivers and others on No Business

    Squidco just got theirs yesterday, so I would imagine DG’s will show soon. Definitely an unusually long lag this time around. I scooped up the Rivers, RED Trio, & Takayanagi discs + the new Blasé/Yasmina on ezz-thetics before they go OOS.
  3. Byard Lancaster

    Some other sideman dates I enjoy: -David Egyes - Crossroads -Khan Jamal - Infinity & Black Awareness -Dwight James - Inner Heat The co-leader CIMP disc Philadelphia Spirit In New York is pretty excellent as well A little more outside the jazz realm, I also love the Garret List & Napoleon Cherry (Cool Waters) records he plays on. Very cool and interesting player, but a bit of a challenge to collect at times.
  4. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Listed as Upcoming at Squidco: Cecil Taylor Quintet featuring Harri Sjostrom, Tristan Honsinger, Teppo Hauta-aho, Paul Lovens: Lifting The Bandstand Listen! Foundation (Fundacja Sluchaj!) Very happy to finally see one of Cecil’s groups get an archival release (and especially this one!); since his passing, only solos & duos with Oxley and Dixon have seen release.
  5. Favorite ECM Records of the 21st Century

    Andrew Cyrille - The Declaration of Musical Independence

  7. New Sam Rivers and others on No Business

    This latest batch sure is taking its time making its way stateside.
  8. Stanley Cowell, R I P

    A massive loss. What a legacy. RIP.
  9. Pretty disappointing to hear about the editing and all the rest. And since we're bitching, it just seems like there were problems all around with this one. I had initially planned to order the CD from Amazon, but it was immediately out of stock, so I placed an order with a record store. A couple weeks went by without a shipping notice, and when I inquired, they said all their copies came with 2 of the same disc and they were waiting on replacements, something I hear happened with the LPs as well. I'll be happy to have it when I finally do get it, but this seems like a misstep all around. I'd call it a rush job, but they announced this almost annoyingly far in advance.
  10. Julius Hemphill Box Set

    I'm definitely a fan of his solo and sax ensemble works, but I'm hoping some of those loft-era jazz groups are represented as well.
  11. Julius Hemphill Box Set

    My assumption is that is has something to do with this. Very interested to get some more details.
  12. New previously unissued Horace Tapscott

    I would agree with this. Lots of 1970s Tapscott music available, not so much from the 90s. I personally also find it musically more interesting as well.
  13. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Noticed this in a New World ad in the new Point of Departure. Very very intriguing! No information on the NW site yet that I can see.
  14. RogueArt Label

    My favorites: Tomeka Reid/Joe Morris - Combinations; one of my 2 or 3 favorite pure improv records from this year. Really tremendous. Roscoe Mitchell - No Side Effects; my favorite of the RM titles on RA that I've heard; I find some of his other output for the label to be a little unremarkable Joshua Abrams Quartet - Unknown Known; incredible session with David Boykins, Jason Adasiewicz, and Frank Rosaly. In the pocket at all times, just awesome. Nicole Mitchell's Sonic Projections - Secret Escapades of Velvet Anderson; makes a fine pairing with the Abrams above, very spiritual Jacques Coursil/Alan Silva - FreeJazzArt; a rare-ish chance to hear two masters at work in their advanced years, exceptional Robert Dick/Tiffany Chang - Raise The River; wide-ranging flute & percussion duets Tarbaby + Oliver Lake & Marc Ducret - Fanon; passionate and fascinating Jeff Albert Instigation Quartet - The Tree On The Mound; fun out quartet date elevated by the great Kidd Jordan, who you often don't get to hear with another horn The Turbine + Cappozzo/Garcin/Wm Parker - Entropy/Enthalpy; 2 bass/2 drums group (thankfully imo) expanded any of the Tiger Trio dates, if you enjoy any of the players (which I do quite a bit, esp. Myra Melford) Also hard to go wrong with any of the Steve Swell, Rob Brown, Jemeel Moondoc, or Matthew Shipp dates. There are still plenty others I need to hear as well.
