  1. Charlie Parker on CD - Where to go from here?

    Interesting recommendations which I was also inspired by. Just purchased one of those Ember Birdland longboxes locally at a reasonable price.
  2. Julius Hemphill Box Set

    This is now available from Jazzmessengers, Barcelona. Order placed.
  3. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), an excellent remake of Don Siegel's 1956 film starring Donald Sutherland. Got to this through the Denny Zeitlin connection after having listened to the very interesting interview with Ben Sidran. The soundtrack of the movie is really special.
  4. New World Records

    The Earl Hines and the Julius Eastman come to mind.
  5. Evan Parker

    This is crazy (and disappointing to say the least)!
  6. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Thanks for presenting these records, just bought two of them.
  7. Julius Hemphill Box Set

    Completely agree. Lots of listening to the BS/SN box lately as well as to Dogon A.D., in anticipation of the new box set which doesn't seem to be very available in Europe yet.
  8. New Sam Rivers and others on No Business

    I hope that they will get better. They have always been very friendly, enthusiastic and professional and brought about many musical surprises.
  9. Corbett v Dempsey new releases

    This is excellent!
  10. Importing/exporting UK/Europe after Brexit

    If I understood well, part of the recent deal was no duties within Europe but deliveries will be possibly slowed down by border controls which have already begun.
  11. Bobby Few (1935-2021)

    Sad! I will be looking out for obituaries in the French Press tomorrow (will be getting Libé). Loved his playing. I would be very interested in reading more about his path. Very lucky to have seen him twice in Paris, once with the Arkestra and another time, with Rasul Siddik, Harry Swift and William Hooker. Both memorable moments! Good article and playlist by Pierre Crépon on The Wire, Steve Lacy is to be trusted on Few: https://www.thewire.co.uk/audio/tracks/wire-playlist-from-cleveland-to-paris-the-many-sides-of-bobby-few
  12. What music did you buy today?

    I will not be able to listen to it until next month at the least, the CD player's lens has to be changed...
  13. How old are YOU?

    This forum is indeed a great resource. Approximately what year did the Blue Note Bulletin Board close? I think I must have joined Organissimo after having read through the Penguin guide (8th edition) and explored some other websites like the European Free Improvisation home and the early years of the Free jazz blog.
  14. How old are YOU?

    35, and glad there are so many people with such interesting experiences here (how is having seen Albert Ayler live for instance as I have noted with admiration and envy!). On the other hand, I wish the gender skew wasn't so important (but not the topic).
