  1. I didn't think I would own much that features in this thread but I do have that Weinstein and rate it very highly.
  2. Name Three People...

    Ozzy Osbourne The Paranoid Warpig Francis Bacon
  3. I am seriously tempted to buy this.

    Early Black Sabbath albums, some great music and Ozzy is essential to them.
  4. Name Three People...

    Ezra Pound Ezra Collective Joe Armon Jones
  5. Great/Amazing Debut Recordings

    A couple contemporary examples Irreversible Entanglements - s/t Jaimie Branch - Fly Or Die And the one, Van Morrison - Astral Weeks. Anyone who doesn't consider it a Jazz album doesn't rate Richard Davis's central contribution. That's a hill I'll die on.
  6. What Are You Watching

    I think that's one of the best UK series in the last few years. Beautifully written and acted.
  7. Blakey 1965 - The New Jazz Men - Vinyl Only

    I don't have a fetish for vinyl just for music and I don't have a DVD player so this LP is the only way for me to enjoy the music. And enjoy it I do. I can't get over how agitated people get on this board because some of us make particular choices of formats on which to enjoy music. If you don't enjoy listening on LP that's fine by me but leave those of us that do to enjoy doing so.
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Mine's in the post, can't wait. I was at the gig.
  9. What music did you buy today?

    He's someone I know I need to investigate more. I know 'Slaves Mass' but need to know others. thanks for this mini primer HutchFan. i want a copy of the one you've just bought if only for the cover Just got me a copy. Sampled it on YouTube and had to follow your lead @HutchFan

  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Absolutely, she can sing them too. That's a total gem. I was lucky to see her play it live a few years ago. Music heaven.

  13. Cool Ruler! Such a great songwriter - tender, angry, often in the same song. sadly missed.

    Shorty Rogers Long John Baldry Hairy McLary
  15. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Yes, that's on my list too
  16. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    First listen and I think it's very good. I've a heap of Wooley albums but haven't bought anything for a few years so took a punt on this as a pre-order. Sounds quite composed to me, it's probably not, and errs on the 'not a lot' end of the 'does it swing?' spectrum Seriously, it's serious music played very well by some very good musicians. If you've an ear for Wooley then you'll enjoy it. It wears all the intellectualising in the notes and on FJB lightly I'd say

  20. Thanks. Giving it another spin and I agree with you on the most successful collaborations. Salif Keita could sing a shopping list and I'd enjoy it!
  21. How are you finding that? I sampled a few tracks and wasn't too convinced by some of the collaborations Edit to add: decided to listen to it and can see that I fell for the danger of random sampling. Still not sure about the Camille track at all
