  1. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Absolutely, the latest batch looks great. Derek Bailey, Barry Guy, Sam Rivers, Masabumi Kikuchi, Sabu Toyozumi, just to name a few that are included, wow!
  2. For completists only....

    Too many space (and probably financial) issues on my side to own it all, but I sure would like to hear the whole oeuvre at least once for some of the mentioned musicians. The CD and digital archive (Bandcamp) reissue stream of late has brought out a lot of fascinating music for some, for instance Cecil Taylor and Derek Bailey who come to mind.
  3. That's really bad news. Full support to him and wishes for recovery.
  4. Toshinori Kondo (1948-2020)

    Great trumpeter Toshinori Kondo has died on Saturday, October 17, his sons have stated in an obituary this Sunday: http://www.toshinorikondo.com/ He was a personal favorite as part of Die Like a Dog Quartet and something very special to be experienced live, as seen in two different settings at Mulhouse festival in 2017. This is sudden and sad.
  5. Roscoe Mitchell recommendations

    Just got Ride the wind on reading praise on this thread, just one listen but indeed great! The Rogue Art offer is tempting. I already have a lot of Mitchell on CD, but the output is really diverse and fascinating.
  6. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    I just received the Mobley box bought on last chance, I was missing about one third of the music. Only played CD1 but the sound is indeed excellent. I already can see that the difference with some of the rvgs I own will be important. While this can seem to be a luxury, I'm sure it will only make me appreciate the music even more.
  7. Jon Gibson (1940-2020)

    Sad. Very very interesting musician. Great to see him in Paris a couple of years ago.
  8. Thanks for the heads up on this release, playing it now and excellent!
  9. François Tusques' Free Jazz

    Come to Paris in November and you can check that relationship live! (coronavirus permits): https://www.letriton.com/programmation/collignon-portal-sclavis-2518
  10. Itaru Oki (1941-2020)

    Sad. Saw him at a festival about two years ago with Tusques, Juanpera and Parle (As on Le chant du jujub).
  11. Jacques Coursil (1938-2020)

    This is sad and unexpected (didn't know he was sick). He also looked younger than his age. Saw him twice in recent years in solo configuration. A fascinating player and a unique path.
  12. I asked the same question and received this reply from Jorge on June 11th: Well the truth is that we are waiting for this box set, since long time ago. They ran out of it, and they are now reprinting more. This is why we are still waiting. But, we are doing everything we can to get it. Actually if we have any luck, we will have it here in a couple of weeks. We will announce it!
  13. Keith Tippett (1947-2020)

    Very sad. Fascinating artist spanning wide. Among other recent recordings, L'étau. Choses clandestines is an excellent studio and live date from 2013 with Michel Pilz, Paul Rogers and Jean-Noël Cognard. Will be revisiting his music.
  14. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?
