    Yes, this weekend.

    TRACK ONE - I suppose it's a fair question to ask why so few (non?) America ttenor players adapted any elements of Archie Shepp's playing. As this cut shows, ther's things there to be used without being imitative. No idea who this is, but they hit it hard, if a little bit retro-y by the time it's over. Then again, minimalism/vamp/repetivie structures are still au-courant. No matter, they're doing with with conviction that is up front. I hope they make a lot of money at change the world!

    That sax player will be Martin Kuchen.  Well worth checking.

    Not Blade either.

    I've just listened to 2 again and I'm wondering if it's Sorey although it's not 'musical' enough for his usual playing but it has the power that I remember from the only time I've seen him live. Obviously not his own piano trio recordings, the polar opposite in fact.

    Track 14 - No doubt.  Reggie.  Opener from this.  This album always gets lost in the shuffle.  I know I’m a broken record, here, but to my ear, it’s because of the way it’s recorded.  If this had been recorded 20 years earlier, there would be some breathing room in the sound.  There are some great moments on this, but I’d really like to kick the engineer in the shin. 


    Damn! I knew I knew that and even said I could probably pull it off my shelves, and I can.  Must listen to it
