  1. Jackie McLean - Jacknife [Blue Note, 1975] thanks to @felserfor the reminder. Marvellous music
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    One I forget about and shouldn't, thanks for the reminder
  3. Now reading...

    That has a fair deal to live up to given the hype and expectation created by 'Normal People'. I'm waiting for the paperback One that doesn't quite live up to the hype in my opinion but before that I read one that most definitely does Beautifully written Between those two I read this which was a stimulating read
  4. Chico Hamilton Quintet - South Pacific in Hi-Fi [Vogue UK, 1958 mono] I like all Chico's albums in the 50s (and beyond) but this strikes me as the weakest. Perhaps the source material or concept gets in the way
  5. Owning multiple copies?

    I have a good number of CD/LP duplication. I also duplicate favourite LPs of which I have original pressings, when good reissues appear e.g. 'Astral Weeks', Marc Levin's 'Songs Dances and Prayers' and soon Jeanne Lee's 'Conspiracy' I have three different LP versions of 'Unity' and a CD. Same with 'Black Fire'. This is just upgrading and not selling on. Which goes some way to explain why I have someone coming to quote for building more shelving...
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Peter Brotzmann - For Adolphe Sax [FMP]
  7. John Coltrane - Live At The Village Vanguard Again! [Impulse, 1966 mono] Love this. Also, fine Jazz socks from JG
  8. Didn't know about that. Listening to some of it now, sounds great, current prices less so
  9. I have the 70s pressing. I feel another Tone Poet on the horizon
  10. Yes, it was Reading. Radio Thames Valley or similar
  11. 'Whispering' surely? After he left OGWT he did a show on my local BBC radio station. I remember his dismay, low key of course, when an LP snapped in his hand
  12. Welcome to BFT 210

    That sax player will be Martin Kuchen. Well worth checking.
  13. Welcome to BFT 210

    Hmm...Angelica Sanchez is my last offer in that case
  14. Name Three People...

    Andrew Gold Yoni Silver Tintin
  15. Welcome to BFT 210

    OK, so thinking about piano trios he's drummed for, is it Mario Pavone? Would make sense with the prominence of the bass
  16. Welcome to BFT 210

    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.
  17. Welcome to BFT 210

    Which 3? allow me to be lazy and not trawl back through the thread
  18. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Was looking forward to this but UK release is now delayed
  19. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    BFT 210. Thanks to @tkeith for the ID and @Pim for putting it on the BFT in the first place. Great to be reminded that I had it!
