  1. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    New CvsD CD. According to the label they will not be selling direct anymore, so Dusty Groove is the only place to get it for now. Joe McPhee & Evan Parker - Sweet Nothings (For Milford Graves) – Live In Chicago 2003
  2. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Tandem, on Emanem. Released initially as two volumes, and then together as a double CD several years ago. It’s extraordinary music.
  3. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Recent release pickups from Squidco that I have been listening to this week: Francois Houle & Marco Von Orelli - Make That Flight (ezz-thetics): a conscious extrapolation on the Carter/Bradford duet recordings, very well done, no easy paths taken gabby fluke-mogul - Love Songs (Relative Pitch): I've read some rather overheated assessments of their music that ignore the long history of work on stringed instruments in the history of free improvisation, but they make a valid and passionate intervention in the continuum. I'm enjoying this one more than the debut CD Cecil Taylor - Respiration (Fundacja Słuchaj!): I don't need to put the hard sell on this. A massively important release Dave Rempis/Joshua Abrams/Avreeyal Ra + Jim Baker - Scylla (Aerophonic): I have a lot of backfilling to do on the Aerophonic catalogue after having dropped out after the first few years of releases, but I figured this was a good place to start, and is very much inspiring me towards getting more. Captivating. Dan Clucas/Kyle Motl/Nathan Hubbard - Daydream & Halting (FMR) - Dan Clucas is one of the far too few improvisors on trumpet & coronet on the scene. He plays the latter on this, as well as violin and moxeno. This is very much in the sweet spot for this music and I can't recommend it enough.
  4. PM: Billy Bang – Sweet Space/Untitled Gift 8th Harmonic Breakdown – 8thHB 8005-6 $30
  5. Yep. He said Bobby comes in from time to time to shoot the breeze and tell stories.
  6. I purchased this a couple weeks ago in Pasadena. The shopowner said Bobby dropped them off himself a couple days before. One spin so far and it's very excellent.
  7. Somebody should grab the Jim McAuley CD, it's very very good.
  8. Recommendations: Jazz Vinyl Stores in Los Angeles

    I was just there last week and made the rounds to a number of stores. For jazz vinyl, I found Atomic and Freakbeat to be the best (as I was leaving Atomic I saw someone had just dropped off a majorly heavy free jazz collection, but they yelled at me not to flip through it haha). Amoeba's jazz vinyl selection was nice too, but it's a much bigger store and was a bit diluted. Though you didn't ask, for the record in terms of jazz CDs, Amoeba was just incredible. Freakbeat had a much smaller section but the quality was high and prices were low. I found Pooh Bah and Canterbury (both in Pasadena) to be very poor for jazz in both formats. Jacknife was also not good at all imo.
  9. Shelly Manne's " 2-3-4" (Impulse, 1962)

    Most distinctive, perhaps, but those Third Stream-ish Contemporary sides are fascinating too. IMO you just can't beat the Blackhawk sides in terms of his best. Also a big fan of The Gambit, which has some peak first wave Charlie Mariano playing.
  10. Absolutely incredible archival release on the horizon
  11. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    I missed out on the Bridge Sessions disc, but hopefully I can turn one up someday. The RogueArt is a slow burner.
  12. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    I have all except The Cerkno Concert. Elan, Impulse and Sweet Oranges are the ones I would recommend above any others, both are very, very excellent. Only gave the new RougueArt one an initial spin when it came out, I should make sure to revisit it soon.
  13. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Excellent disc. The McPhee/Jaume/Boni CELP CD Songs & Dances has eluded me always, it scarcely seems to exist.
  14. Grachan Moncur III Has Died - RIP

    Very sad. Having heard broadly all that this music has to offer, and having heard a lot of certain spaces within that continuum, there is to this day simply nothing at all quite like those Blue Note albums. A resounding, eternal legacy. RIP.
  15. Cecil Taylor Warsaw 1968 presumably unissued

    yep, a few months earlier in Italy.
