  2. What Are You Watching

  3. Doug & Jean Carn - Spirit Of The New Land

    Same here! That was a great concert! Cowell was impressive. Was it Gilles Peterson who organised it? Anthony
  4. windmill tilter!

    Thanks, never seen that. Last CD reissue of Windmill tilter was a needle drop. do you think someone has located master tapes, in the same dusty corner as the Tubby tapes in the recent box set. Anthony
  5. Walter Bishop Jr. - Coral Keys

    Keeper of my soul is v groovy. Rudolph Johnson’s Spring Rain is beautiful, recommended. Having been fond of Rudolph and intrigued about his career, I found this Vancouver jazz article on him interesting. Did I read diabetes caught up with him? http://vancouverjazz.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4792 Anthony London
  6. windmill tilter!

    Interesting news, not familiar with Namislowski’s ‘Lola’, what is that?
  7. Gabor Szabo

    The article has now been tweeted: https://www.jazzwise.com/features/article/charles-lloyd-the-thing-is-i-want-to-share-the-music-i-m-still-on-a-mission-and-it-can-t-happen-this-is-plague-time
  8. Gabor Szabo

    The June edition of Jazzwise has an interview with Charles Lloyd where he explains the problems he experienced on tour with Gabor and Albert Stinson. Anthony
  9. Rashied Ali / Frank Lowe - Duo Exchange

    I bought my copy plus the live at slugs direct from Honest Jons recently, a smooth transaction. I was not familiar with Duo Exchange, but am now captivated. Very lively sound on the LP, good pressing. Anthony

  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Jitu Pharoah Sanders. On repeat. This will get me through the lockdown. Only takes 1 min 30 for Pharoah to go stratospheric. anthony london
  12. Henry Grimes RIP

    I saw Kevin Le Gendre interview Henry on the South Bank a few years back and ask him about what CDs he listened to during his period away from music. There was a long pause and then Margaret intervened to explain Henry didn’t have the means to follow music, wasn’t aware of the latest format. A really awkward moment, and daft question. But brought home how cut off Henry had been from the world.
  13. Lee Konitz R.I.P.

    RIP was privileged to see him numerous times, from a gig in Bristol in 80s where he said the band had just eaten in a Greek restaurant so the improvisations might include some bouzouki music. Ronnie’s early 90s with Kenny Wheeler where he looked hacked off with noisy yuppie crowd, same era Jazz Cafe with Atilla Zoller where he made everyone stop smoking while he played, good on him, Rebirth of the Cool tour where I couldn’t clap as my companion was bootlegging (nice stereo recording), his 80th at Carnegie Hall with Ted Brown compered by Phil Schaa, and more recently Cheltenham where he spent most of the gig scatting but then let rip on the alto on 317 E32nd. If I only I could play that now as well, never mind in my late 80s. What a player. Do I recall he fell out with Mulligan on the rebirth tour and pulled out part way through the European leg? Anthony London Some amusing recollections from someone driving Lee to Cheltenham Jazz one year https://windmilldays.wordpress.com/2020/04/16/day-21/
  14. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    Excellent! Good to not be dependent on the big stores.
  15. what are you drinking right now?

    DEYA cask beer in a growler from the Southampton Arms London NW5, after a bike ride in the sun, life goes on, I live in hope. anthony london
