  1. Your 10 (or 5, or 3) favorite ECM albums

    Also need to add the Liebman - Lookout Farm; Abercrombie - Timeless, and the two DeJohnette - New Directions albums. That's a big 3, 5, or 10!
  2. That Gumbs album is an underrated treasure, one of my favorite solo piano works. And that is a good Charles Sullivan (I also really like "Genesis" on Strata-East).
  3. Yes, she was, though a tragic figure (suicide at 28, third attempt). But that's not her on the list, it's someone named Beverly Kelly. I made the same mistake at first glance. As for Kenney, we of course aren't permitted to recommend European PD releases without a ton of backlash, so I won't recommend this set collecting all six of her albums in one package:
  4. The one I can recommend is the Honi Gordon. She did an album on Prestige with a small group which included Ken McIntyre and Jaki Byard, and she sang well on it.
  5. Your 10 (or 5, or 3) favorite ECM albums

    Quickly done, may have missed a few, but gives a sampling of my tastes: Mal Waldron - Free at Last Chick Corea - Crystal Silence, Piano Improvisations Vols. 1 and 2 Jan Garbarek - Witchai Tai To Stanley Cowell - Illusion Suite Julain Priester - Love, Love Ralph Towner - Solstice Enrico Rava - The Pilgrim and the Stars Keith Jarrett - Belonging
  6. BFT 197 Discussion

    Yes, #7 is Joe Henderson, the title track to "Power to the People", 1969 on Milestone. Great stuff, and couldn't get any more in my wheelhouse than that!
  7. New Charles Tolliver

    Mine has been shipped by importcds.
  8. BFT 196 -- THE REVEAL!!!!

    Interesting on #12, it does indeed evoke Sanders, now I know what I was hearing when I first responded to the BFT. Cuber has always struck me as a strong player in whatever contexts I've heard him, going all the way back to those ancient George Benson Columbia sides, though I've never sought out his leader work. Definitey on the lookout for #'s 9 and 10, which would never have been on my radar otherwise. Thanks as always for stimulating BFT!
  9. New Corbett v Dempsey

    Here in Philly, that's "Yo, Al".
  10. ATTENTION ALL BILLY HARPER BUFFS!!!

    On it, thanks! This is another good "stealth" Billydate. I included a cut in a BFT a few years ago: https://www.discogs.com/Mark-Masters-Jazz-Orchestra-With-Billy-Harper-And-Jimmy-Knepper-Priestess/release/9176093
