  1. Head’s up Braxton fans!

    A septet led by Kobe van Cauwenberghe playing Braxton compositions. Quite refreshing. Some background from Tim Rutherford-Johnson here: https://johnsonsrambler.wordpress.com/ Music is on Bandcamp here: https://elnegocito.bandcamp.com/album/ghost-trance-septet-plays-anthony-braxton
  2. Head’s up Braxton fans!

    Note, this isn’t a Braxton release.
  3. Masayuki Takayanagi

    Recorded in 1975 for ESP Disk, but not released until 1991 and then only in Japan. https://blankformseditions.bandcamp.com/album/april-is-the-cruellest-month This Japanese guitarist is new to me; a fascinating listen for $7 via Bandcamp. Three tracks that build nicely; the 3rd track ("My Friend, Blood Shaking My Heart") is a 20-minute squall. If your sinuses need clearing, you may want to check this out.

  5. Roy Brooks - Understanding

    Digital files avail from Bandcamp for $13 on 07/23. https://roybrooksband.bandcamp.com/
  6. Bud Powell cd

  7. I could be wrong. Perhaps this has been released before. As I've learned, George Lewis was sponsored at IRCAM in the early '80s. His studies there culminated in a May 1984 sound project with Lewis operating three midi-networked Apple II computers linked to Yamaha DX7's which "interact" with invited guests in a series of performances. These guests were Doug Ewart, Derek Bailey, Steve Lacy and Joëlle Leandre. It seems this series of performances was broadcast on TV in Europe at the time; until now they've not been released as sound recordings. Now available from Carrier Records on Bandcamp at: https://carrierrecords.com/album/rainbow-family I think it’s pretty cool.
  8. Happy Birthday Lester Bowie

    I’ve always felt like Lester was the spiritual heir to Cootie Williams.
  9. Looks interesting... https://blankformseditions.bandcamp.com/merch/thulani-davis-nothing-but-the-music
  10. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen the video of Hawk listening to Bird as he solos on Ballade. Priceless.
  11. KC PBS documentary new to me. https://www.pbs.org/video/bird-not-out-of-nowhere-tjtcyb/
  12. Jay McShann/St Louis Mood arranger

    John Jackson was the other alto.
  13. Georgia Anne Muldrow - Resumed for EDC, etc

    and a new “album” https://someothaship.bandcamp.com/album/mama-you-can-bet
  14. avery r. young - tubman

    Sounds like Gladys, Stevie, Mavis and Donny Hathaway got a gospel choir and cooking band together and had a ball (as Art Blakey would say). Connecting the dots, avery sang on Nicole Mitchell’s Mandorla Awakening. https://fperecs.bandcamp.com/album/tubman
  15. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Plus you have the lovely Veronica kicking errybody’s ass.
  16. Shatz’s piece falls in the category of “this is more interesting than most the shit I’m reading.” Regrettably, that’s a pretty low bar. Seems a little thinly sourced to me.

  19. Charlie Rouse redux

    For all you Monk/Rouse lovers/haters, there is a newly-discovered (to my knowledge) recording of an appearance the quartet made at the Odd Fellow Palæet (Mansion) in Copenhagen on March 5, 1963.

  20. Tyshawn Sorey

    This one (Inner Spectrum of Variables) is pretty special: https://pirecordings.com/album/pi65 Takes awhile to digest, but well worth it.
