  1. BFT 139 discussion

    He's pretty well-known among jazz fans north of the border. I liked that track from your last BFT so much that I bought the album (Sun Song).
  2. BFT 139 discussion

    Track 12. Sonny Greenwich? Track 14. A cover of Steve Lacy's "Blinks." By Dave Douglas I'm guessing. I love that version of "Beatrice." Is that a ring modulator on Track 10?

    Awesome--looking forward to it. ?
  4. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Julius Hemphill, Blue Boyé (Mbari). 2 LPs of Hemphill on alto, soprano and flute, often overdubbed. There's another similarly constituted 2 LP set from that era on Sackville.
  5. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Excellent choice. Many treasures to be found on the Hungaraton label in the 1970s and 1980s, especially by composers of the Budapest New Music Studio (Jeney and Sary were both founding members). I've yet to find a dud on that label. Zsolt Durko is another favourite. Do you have any other recommendations? Hungaraton also did that amazing edition of Bartok's works.
  6. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Contemporary Hungarian Music, Zoltan Jeney and Laszlo Sary (Hungaraton). Early 1970s works from two Hungarian composers--very nice and adventurous.
  7. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Bobby Bradford, Love's Dream (Emanem) Miles Davis, Pangaea (CBS Sony)
  8. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    I love Corky Laing's drumming on "Never in my Life." There's some cool bass on that record too.
  9. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Eric Dolphy, Live at Gaslight Inn (Ingo) Lee Morgan, s/t (Blue Note)
  10. Marty Milner, RIP

    RIP. He played the guitarist in Chico Hamilton's band in Sweet Smell of Success. Unusual for Hollywood, he and his wife had been married since 1957.
  11. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    John Carter, Variations (Moers). Java: Gamelans from the Sultan's Palace in Jogjakarta (Archiv Produktion)
  12. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    ? Now listening to Frank Lowe, Tricks of the Trade (Marge), with Butch Morris.
  13. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Freddie Hubbard, The Body & The Soul (Impulse).
  14. Black Saint/Soul Note Box Sets

    I can see why he objected--it looks like it belongs on a hair metal record.
  15. Miles Davis, Live in Tokyo 1/22/75

    That's a great concert. I'm pretty sure Pete Cosey takes over the drum kit on the last track. He also played drums on the studio version of that song.
  16. Lee Morgan At The Both/And Club June 1970

    It's a nice set. I don't believe the location has ever been conclusively determined—Maupin says Both/And but the piano sounds the same as the Lighthouse.
  17. Star Trek - The Animated Series

    I remember seeing this in the '70s. George Takei and Nichelle Nichols weren't originally supposed to be part of the show, but Leonard Nimoy refused to do it unless they were involved, so they got added.
  18. Recordings Dedicated To Ornette's Music

    John Zorn's Spy vs. Spy with Tim Berne.
  19. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    The Budapest String Quartet, Debussy/Ravel (Columbia) ???
  20. Best work by Ornette Coleman sidemen

    They reportedly jammed together in 1963 with Fred Lyman and others. http://www.ayler.co.uk/html/unreleased.html

  22. Steve Lacy

    I guess they've never heard of French. Aebiphobes should be reassured that her singing is brief, limited to 15 short texts. It's a good album.
  23. Gerard Schwarz - The New Trumpet

    I've got it, but haven't heard it in years. Recall really enjoying it, especially the duet with Oppens.
  24. Ornette Coleman, New Vocabulary

    It actually was released on vinyl as well.
  25. Ornette Coleman, New Vocabulary

    From NPR : In an email to NPR late Wednesday afternoon, Ziv wrote, "New Vocabulary is a collaborative, joint work by professional musicians Jordan McLean, Amir Ziv, and Ornette Coleman, made with the willing involvement of each artist. The album is the end result of multiple deliberate and dedicated recording sessions done with the willing participation and consent of Mr. Coleman and the other performers. Any suggestion to the contrary is unfounded and we deny any allegations of wrongdoing. For any further comment, we refer you to our attorney Justin S. Stern at Frigon Maher & Stern LLP."
