  1. Monk and Lacy

    This picture was featured on the cover of both editions of We See.
  2. I have Amazon CD-R copies of John Patton's Blue John and Accent On The Blues if anybody would like them. Both play just fine. The printing on Blue John is very good, while the printing on Accent leaves much to be desired. But the music is fantastic!
  3. SOLD Euro Jazz Boxes Three-Fer

    PE Hewitt is actually American, but this is a great set of raw private press modal stuff, well worth having.
  4. Hat Compilations of Marion Brown and Albert Ayler

    I say viable because those were available only overseas for a few months and now list well over $100 when they even turn up. edit: which is of course egregious because they’re stone bootlegs anyhow
  5. Hat Compilations of Marion Brown and Albert Ayler

    Terrible not to just reissue Juba-Lee in full. The ESP date has been widely available for decades, while the Fontana has never had a very viable CD release. Really disappointing.
  6. Dave Bartholomew is 100 years old!

  7. What's odd about these companies falling under the same umbrella is that their pricing is so different. I find importcds to always be cheapest, shipping is free, and as Felser said they usually run bulk discount deals on ebay. Collector's Choice sells through Discogs and charges $3 per item to ship, no combination, so they're almost always a terrible deal.
  8. I really like decluttr (though their pricing seems to be moving toward the more algorithmic model, so I think the age of amazing deals from them is over) though yes I do only buy from them when I feel certain I will receive the pressing I'm looking for.
  9. I just ordered from them accidentally-- if I had known who it was I wouldn't have placed the order. Paid immediately, no activity for 5-6 days; sent a message through ebay asking if it had shipped, got a shipping notice about 30 minutes later. It's through DHL, which in my experience is always a complete disaster. Currently bouncing around like so ^ Edit: Forgot to mention, the seller name on ebay is bargainbinmedia, but it's just Movie Mars. Trash.
  10. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This one is so magical I almost try to listen to it sparingly. Thus, it's always a special day when it gets a spin.
  11. The Rob Brown group stuck out to me as one I'm really looking forward to hearing. Also a huge fan of the Trio Exaltation record on clean feed.
  12. Wondering if anyone would be willing to part with this one on CD, let me know!
  13. Marion Brown: Le temps fou

    Not finding much distribution on this reissue besides Soundohm, which requires a subscription. If anyone knows who else might be holding let us know: https://www.soundohm.com/product/le-temps-fou-lp/pid/35383/
  14. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    2 very strong-looking titles from Otoroku: Hi there We're very pleased to announce two new CDs on our own in-house OTOROKU imprint. First up is Tree Dancing, by the incredible quartet of Lol Coxhill, Joe McPhee, Chris Corsano and Evan Parker. This recording from the earlier years of Cafe OTO documents the impossible pairing of four contemporary giants. It's one of those miraculous one-off groupings that reminds us why the venue opened in the first place. Alongside this is Seasons Changing, a 2CD set documenting two very special sets at OTO in November 2017 from the trio of Charles Gayle, John Edwards and Mark Sanders. In classic ecstatic fashion one would expect from these three stalwarts of blazing transcendence these two sets swerve from the sublime to the this is an exquisite document of one of the most exciting trios operating today, Both releases are now available to order via the Cafe OTO website, as well as a special bundle deal for both releases. Orders will be shipped early next week. Full details and links below. All the best, Cafe OTO ROKU021 Lol Coxhill / Joe McPhee / Chris Corsano / Evan Parker - Tree Dancing CD CD – £10 (£8 members) “The magic of the first minutes – an alto solo by Joe McPhee of true purity – soft-spoken, masterful and accomplished – brought back to mind the blissful Coleman/Haden duet last year at the Royal Festival Hall. ‘Ornette gave me freedom to move in a certain way,’ said McPhee. He searched hesitantly and carefully for his words, all the more surprising from such an articulate musical (or, as he might say ‘muse-ical’) practitioner and campaigner. Coleman’s 80th birthday coincided with McPhee’s stint at Cafe Oto. McPhee and his co-musicians delivered an intense performance which was both creative and restrained. With Evan Parker ‘s tenor in tow – a collaboration going back to the late 70s – and Lol Coxhill, sitting with head bowed intently, a soprano master – it could have gone anywhere, yet they worked off each other, often in the higher registers, building up almost bird-call like interactions and trills. Earlier, Chris Corsano‘s drumming presented a dense bedrock for McPhee to play against, and his solo spell was a crisp exercise in sonic curiosity. McPhee picked up his soprano mid-way through the second set, heightening the lyricism of the three saxophones. Then, being a devotee of Don Cherry, he switched to pocket trumpet, allowing him to interject, and punctuate the concentrated sound layers built up by the quartet, and lead the music out through a different door” - Geoff Winston (londonjazznews.com) Recorded 10th March 20010, this is also a document of the only time Lol Coxhill and Joe Mcphee shared the stage. The recording is a little rough, but hey. so was your birth. Limited to 500 copies. ROKU020 Charles Gayle /John Edwards / Mark Sanders - Seasons Changing 2CD 2CD – £15 / £12 members Charles Gayle is a saxophonist, pianist, sometimes a clown and radical musical performer wrapped into the body of a humble person living in Downtown Manhattan since the 1960s. As this set attests to, It is sometimes hard to predict what he will do on stage... In all his musical (and personal) life Charles Gayle has remained outside of any form of mainstream, carving his own singular path. There is no player on the scene today with the emotional wallop of Charles Gayle. John Edwards is a true virtuoso whose staggering range of techniques and boundless musical imagination have redefined the possibility of the double bass and dramatically expanded its role, whether playing solo or with others. Perpetually in demand, he has played with Sunny Murray, Derek Bailey, Joe McPhee, Peter Brötzmann, Mulatu Astatke and many others. Ubiquitous, diverse and constantly creative, drummer Mark Sanders has worked with a host of renowned musicians including Derek Bailey, Henry Grimes, Mathew Shipp, Roswell Rudd, in duo and quartets with Wadada Leo Smith and trios with Sirone and William Parker. Here we present a 2CD set documenting the two very special sets delivered on the 15th of November, 2017 at Cafe Oto, Dalston, London.
