  1. Bunny Wailer (1947 - 2021)         

    Sad news. 'Sings the Wailers' was a big album for back in the 80s
  2. Ralph Peterson Jr. RIP

    Just listened to David Murray's 'Deep River' and 'Ballads', the only time I saw Ralph Peterson Jr. was with Murray. He was great then and he stokes these two recordings whether playing hot or cool.
  3. Ralph Peterson Jr. RIP

    Oh no! Hadn't listened to him in a while but his BN dates were great. He had some fine players on those dates.
  4. What Are You Watching

    American Gods, season two, just started. Loved the book and this adaptation is keeping my eye ntetedt despite some longueurs.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Just read about the extra tracks. I'm happy to buy vinyl but the cost with postage to UK is £49 which means they've got be a great 20 minutes!
  6. Live Streaming Concerts

    Really enjoyed from Elmhurst University Jazz Festival Ryan Truesdell's Gil Evans Project presents Birth of the Cool
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Channelling the earlier ECM cover design, using Rainbow studio and Jan Erik Kongshaug, from 2015. inspired by the 'Ondas' discussion elsewhere. Very good indeed The follow-up ECM that never was Hutchfan? On Bandcamp here https://fwmrecords.bandcamp.com/album/beginning-and-end-of-knowing
  8. Nor me but my impression, and it's only an impression as I haven't looked anything up, is that ECM didn't make many recordings outside their favoured studios in those days (still only a small handful) so if he was back in NZ or Australia maybe Manfred couldn't find a studio he liked or couldn't be bothered to look
  9. Your audio equipment?

    Interesting, thanks. I'm tempted
  10. I didn't know that. Did Nock stay in Europe or go home I wonder.
  11. Joe Chambers - Back on Blue Note

    Just finished my first listen. Agree about the first track. Not too sure the rapper works in the context of the album either. Otherwise, very strong first impression.
  12. Your audio equipment?

    I'll be interested to know your feedback after living with it for a while
  13. Yes! One of my favourite ECM piano trio albums. Tends to fly under the radar I think
