  1. BFT 146 REVEAL!

    That was a great BFT. I especially enjoyed the Takeru Muraoka track.
  2. Is the "t" in "often" Silent?

    The t is pronounced in my part of the world.
  3. SNL Sax

    Sanborn is great on Tim Berne's Diminutive Mysteries (Mostly Hemphill). He's also guested with John Zorn the odd time.
  4. George Adams, anyone?

    I love that album. The hand of Manfred is apparent and it sounds more like at a Kenny Wheeler album at times, but all the more fascinating to hear Adams in this context. Heinz Sauer is also part of what is a really interesting group.
  5. Jimmy Hamilton

    That Lucky LP is a great one. Hamilton really shines on it.
  6. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    I saw this album sitting in a second hand shop the other day. I remember seeing Bill Cowsill performing covers in a pub back in the early 90s during one of the many mini comebacks he had in those days. It was sad and kind of surreal. Now spinning: Giorgio Gaslini Jean-Luc Ponty...et al (PA USA) & Philly Joe Jones/Dameronia, Look Stop Listen

    Anthony Braxton and the Three Rivers Tri-Centric Ensemble, Ensemble (Pittsburgh) 2008. Excellent concert organized by saxophonist Ben Opie featuring some of Braxton's older creative orchestra songs. Braxton conducts and plays. There's also a CD-R featuring a high school ensemble doing a great job on some Braxton tunes.
  8. David Baker R.I.P.

    Sad news. Baker is great on those George Russell Sextet dates and is a big reason why they were so good. Glad he went on to have a long, impactful career in music.
  9. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    ??? Hungarian String Quartet, Bela Bartok, The Six String Quartets (DG). Endlessly fascinating music.
  10. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    John Coltrane, Black Pearls (Prestige).
  11. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Walter used to come up to Vancouver to record, teach and busk. I met him a few times and he was a nice guy and quite a character. I've always liked this LP, but certainly it's not in the top echelon of Lacy's works. The CD version has two further duets which appeared on the LP Call Notes. Now playing... John Coltrane, Offering, Live at Temple University (Resonance). It's late period Coltrane, but compared to the Japan and Olatunji concerts, this one comes across as mellow.
  12. Happy Birthday B. Clugston!

    Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes!

    Watazumido-Shuso, The Mysterious Sounds of the Japanese Bamboo Flute (Everest)
  14. Andrew Hill

    I spin Judgement, Compulsion and the Blue Note Mosaic Select the most, but you really can't go wrong with any of the Blue Notes.

    Bill Dixon, Aaron Siegel, Ben Hall, Weight/Counterweight (Broken Research)

    Kodaly String Quartet, Contemporary Hungarian Chamber Music (Hungaroton).
  20. Robert Craft

    RIP. He also did a lot to bring Schoenberg's work to a wider audience.
  21. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Those albums seem to get forgotten amongst Giuffre's output, but they are great. Kiyoshi Tokunaga and Randy Kaye are an excellent rhythm section for this music. Evan Parker/Derek Bailey/Han Bennink, The Topography of the Lungs (Incus)
  22. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Joseph Jarman and Famoudou Don Moye, Egwu-Anwu (Sun Song) (India Navigation). Nice showcase of both talents without the other guys. Jimmy Giuffre 3, Music for People, Birds, Butterflies & Mosquitoes (Choice). Great album from Giuffre's 70s trio. Lots of flute.
  23. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Paul Desmond Quartet Live (Horizon). Great quartet date with on Ed Bickert on guitar, Jerry Fuller on drums and Don Thompson on bass (and engineer). Desmond's solo on Jobim's Wave is packed with interesting moments.
  24. Happy Birthday GA Russell!

    Happy Birthday to the guy who knows the difference between Roughriders and Rough Riders!
