  1. Byard Lancaster

    Sure would be nice if Byard's album "Us" with Steve McCall -drums and Sylvain Marc-electric bass was reissued.Originally released in the mid 70s on the French Palm label.Who knows where (if?) the original tapes are.
  2. Jimmy Giuffre 3-Live in Graz 1961

    After one complete listen...WOW.Outstanding music.Paul Bley is crazy, magically brilliant here.Steve Swallow is recorded very well on this session,you hear him under every minute of the music.A couple of tracks, the shortcomings of the tape come through but generally, the sound is acceptable.
  3. Jimmy Giuffre 3-Live in Graz 1961

    Mine arrived today.Huzzah!!!
  4. Jimmy Giuffre 3-Live in Graz 1961

    Got my shipping notification from Squidco this morning.Happy days.
  5. Jimmy Giuffre 3-Live in Graz 1961

    It's available from Squidco.I ordered my copy there.
  6. Jimmy Giuffre 3-Live in Graz 1961

    Glad to see this release has authorization from the Giuffre and Bley estates, and from Steve Swallow.
  7. Hotdamn!!.More live Giuffre 3 from their 1961 tour of Europe.I think this session was available as a boot but it's a gas to have this out legit (i assume it's legit,Hat Art releases usually are).Ordered from Squidco but it'll be available elsewhere, i'm sure. Tried to post the Squidco page link for this release but it didn't work, probably my fault.It's listed on Squidco as "Just in stock".

  9. Been digging this new release on the Umlaut label.These days i'm more willing to check out trumpet-bass-drums trio recordings than sax-bass-drums albums.This one's a keeper.Reminds me a bit of Bill Dixon-Vade Mecum,particularly the way Louis Laurain crafts his sound on trumpet.I post an excerpt from a track on the cd.Hope you like it. Louis Laurain-trumpet Hannes Lingen-drums Sebastien Beliah-bass
  10. Ornette Coleman reissues?

    Good to know.
  11. Ornette Coleman reissues?

    For me, there is no album in Ornette's discography that means more to me than Crisis.I consider it a masterpiece,and i'm excited as hell that it'll finally, at long last be reissued.I hope it's a legit reissue.I'm somewhat curious why Denardo and whoever else runs Ornette's label aren't releasing these titles themselves. In any event, i'm in.
  12. Jimmy Hastings

    Hastings plays sax and flute on Caravan's "If I Could Do It All Over Again....".Lovely player.

    Julian Coryell,Larry's son, posted on Facebook that his father passed away yesterday.
  14. Overlooked Saxophonists

    Haven't checked to see if he's been mentioned, but, if not..... Steve Potts.
  15. MPS

    I'd love to see a reissue of Archie Shepp-Live(Life) at Donauschingen Music Festival.I'm lucky to have a Polydor cd of this but it deserves a wider release.True fire-music,and what a band-Grachan Moncur III and Roswell Rudd on trombones,Jimmy Garrison-bass-Beaver Harris-drums.From 1967.
