  1. Album/Disc 4 - Cheops featuring Kyoko Kitamura: voice -&- Ensemble 1. Entire Universe - 13:36 2. Cheops - 13:51 3. The Map Is Precise - 08:03 4. If We Play Soft Enough - 22:17 5. Harriott - 12:51 - This was the most intense disc so far. Very entertaining from star to finish. Album/Disc 5 - Harlem Speaks featuring Fay Victor / Hamid Drake / William Parker 1. Dancing at the Savoy - 04:45 2. Don't Sell My Soul - 11:53 3. Harlem Dances - 11:37 4. Harlem Speaks - 07:17 5. Paintings in the Sky - 0:23 6. Shutters as Windows - 18:17 - This the most abstract of the 5 discs I've been able to listen to so far. For me the most difficult to get into but it did start to all come together around Harlem Speaks.
  2. Album/Disc 3 - The Majesty of Jah featuring Ellen Christie / William Parker / Jalalu-Kalvert Nelson 1. Baldwin - 08:16 2. The Majesty of Jah - 08:21 3. Freedom - 08:56 4. Sun Song - 06:49 5. Numbers - 06:29 6. Letter To A Resurrected Slave Owner - 04:52 - More of a meditative feel on this disc. I read the interview William did with Jalalu in his Conversations book but this is my first time (i think) hearing him. He stole the disc. Excellent stuff.
  3. New record by Freddie Redd!!!

  4. I think you will thoroughly enjoy it. I spun disc two which is solo piano from Eri Yamamoto. Beautiful record, did realize it had been an hour by the time it ended. Starts off very light and turns somber and very emotional. Hope to get through a couple more discs today.
  5. And the journey begins. Disc 1 with Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez is awesome! Holy crap. This is very immersive. Cosmic Funk indeed! This honestly feels like the flower that is the tone world that Mr. Parker has created, has fully opened and it is aww inspiring.
  6. My copy arrived today. Probably won’t get around to it u til tomorrow though.
  7. Jazz CD bargains

    Thanks for the heads up!!
  8. Can you guess who they are?

    Second one is Billy Harper?
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Makoto Kawashima - 2020-10-01 followed by Makoto Kawashima - 2020-11-23 FANTASTIC stuff here. Hearing Makoto on piano for the first time is sublime
  10. Joe Chambers - Back on Blue Note

    Can you provide any more information about this? I know it was brought up in the Sonny thread but I don't know when/why this became a pact with some labels not following it.
  11. Julius Hemphill Box Set

    I agree. As I tell my wife, if these endeavors go unsupported, we will not see them in the future. Just because I got the William Parker set and two large orders of Japanese releases in the last 6 weeks I have to hold off for a little bit. This will be purchased though.
  12. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    This pandemic is a very sobering time. My wife has lost a couple more family members and my job has released emails informing of a half a dozen passings in the last week.
  13. Julius Hemphill Box Set

    Downtown Music Gallery also has it listed in their newsletter
  14. What music did you buy today?

    placed a large order from Cedric at https://japanarchives-mailorder.com. This is my favorite site to peruse from Japanese artists and Cedric is super reliable. Highly recommend anyone looking for this music to start here. I have bought every Makoto Kawashima release from him and they always arrive fast. Really excited for the Masayoshi Urabe 3 LP set he released on his label in Dec. Beautiful packaging. Makoto Kawashima - 2020-11-13 Makoto Kawashima - 2020-10-01 Masabumi Kikuchi/Masayuni Takayagagi - Live at Jazz Inn Lovely 1990 Masayoshi Urabe - Mobilis in Mobili Harutaka Mochizuki - Flageolet Ni Tokeru Chocolate Tomoyuki Aoki & Harutaka Mochizuki - 2 Tori Kudo - Live at Shichi Shitsu 3
  15. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Poo with Hino isn’t my favorite setting for Poo. It stays contained even in a Poo composition. Still a good date and recommended if you can find it for a good price. It’s SACD and Japan only so it can be pricey.
  16. ebay madness re: vinyl

    I don’t think it’s those sets either but they definitely are original given the test pressing date is from 2000
  17. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Peter Brotzmann - I Surrender Dear (Solo Tenor Saxophone) A departure from the typical Brotzmann solo as he plays (his) version of standards here. Quite enjoyable.
  18. It is excellent. I picked it up on a whim from Squidco as part of their "at cost" sale. Each musician composed a side of the LP. I'm a bigger fan of Wooley than Vandermark but this is a really good duo set.
  19. Ken Vandermark & Nate Wooley - Deeply Discounted II/Sequence of Snow
  20. I hope your shipping is as quick as mine was. Mine shipped out Monday and arrived Wednesday via DHL. Insanely fast.
  21. This set is magic. With as much as I love Tethered Moon (Kikuchi/Peacock/Motian) the Great 3 with Togashi in place of Motain is a different animal that works in a very transcendent way IMO. The interplay is more interesting.
  22. I think Second Floor Music is Don Sickler’s publishing company. I admittedly don’t understand publishing all that well but maybe he bought the publishing rights to Cliffords catalog or controls them for a fee for the Brown family. It would make sense a publishing company could collect better than a family.
