  1. Note that the band was concentrating on the new tunes while they were being recorded. Listening to the Both/And stuff, they had a much bigger repertoire, including "Ceora," "Willow Weep for Me," and Mabern's "The Chieftain" and "Rakin' and Scrapin'."
  2. LF: Golden Years of the Soviet New Jazz on Leo

    There's a few Volume 1s on eBay. As per above message, the label still has the remaining volumes in stock. It was a great series.
  3. Heino - Because We Need Him Now More Than Ever

    It may have been, but I can't remember. I do remember it was a running gag that Letterman played out for a long time.
  4. Heino - Because We Need Him Now More Than Ever

    I owned this record at one point. When I bought it at the record store, the clerk was talking about how cool Heino is, but I quickly realized he was mixed him up with Haino, as in Keiji Haino, the equally distinct looking Japanese loud guitarist. Letterman used to have these funny segments about Heino.
  5. The followup album, Jazz Orchestra '75, is a fun listen, too.
  6. The ECM has four extra tracks, uses an alternate of "Trudgin'" and omits "Used to Be" from Fusion.
  7. Notable young sidemen in big bands in the 70s-80's

    George Lewis (the trombonist) toured with Count Basie.
  8. Paul Chambers

    Fascinating stories. He certainly does bear a resemblance to Paul.
  9. Sonny Rollins Recommendations?

    Yes! There are pure nuggets of gold on even the most critically derided Rollins albums.
  10. Rega P1 and P2 turntables

    I have a P1 and am happy with it. I didn't see the P2 as being significantly better enough to justify the difference in price.
  11. Favorite ECM Records of the 21st Century

    I'm a big fan of Wolfgang Muthspiel's Where the River Goes and Barre Phillips' End to End.
  12. Julius Hemphill Box Set

    Wow, there's an amazing range of material there. There's even a mention of our own Allen Lowe.
  13. happy Birthday JSngry

    Happy Birthday!
  14. Black Unity Trio – Al-Fatihah

    I did. Really happy with this release. But yes, pressing plants put out variable quality.
  15. Pete Cosey

    Cosey joined the band in April, so most likely that month. It may be from the Howard University concert.
