  1. Clifford Jordan-Strata East Mosaic

    Sad to have missed it too, it was first on my list for January. I know I should have gone for it earlier but money is tight lately.
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Mal Waldron Trio: Free at Last (ECM)
  3. I had noted you mentioning it, so didn't hesitate a second when finding it last month during a short stay in Tokyo (along with a few other marvels).
  4. Giorgio Gaslini Ensemble E Quartet: Nuovi Sentimenti (EMI)
  5. Thanks Flurin for the detailed reply, and to the others too! Hopefully I do have some Lester Young to ease down the harder moments in life (the Decca Basie, the Aladdin twofer, and the Billie Holidays essentially) and Hawkins (the Mosaic is great). I understand better now how these are situated relatively to those, and will try for sure to listen to these if I can't own them.
  6. For those like me who are not in the know, is this essential listening for each of the artists included here? The sound excerpts are really enticing. The period seems ideal. I haven't read about this rediscovery and the downloads so would be very interested in what some of you have to say.
  7. I'm worried that some of these musicians would love to be more active, but as has sadly been demonstrated with Sunny Murray, they don't get offered that many dates in late. Coursil plays solo, like last year in a record shop. He would be comfortable of course with much longer playing time, but that's how today's format is. Alan Silva who was supposed to be playing today finally is not, last time he played in Paris as far as I know was two or three years ago. It's also rare to hear Bobby Few nowadays. Last time was him filling in for Arkestra pianist who couldn't come. As for André Jaume, I don't know. He was playing in some festivals a couple of years ago and seemed in great shape. Yes it will be great to see Steve Potts!
  8. Just now discovering the programme...
  9. Sunny Murray

    An interesting interview from 2000 here: http://www.paristransatlantic.com/magazine/interviews/murray.html Also watched the Sunny's Time Now documentary last night and found interesting how such different musicians as François Tusques and Robert Wyatt had very similar understandings of the nature of Sunny Murray's drum playing: essentially the circular, space-occupying aspect of the sound and the physical dimension of it.

  13. Crazy sale at Leo Records

    I guess one can ask not to receive any CDRs, the label is still personally handled by Leo Feigin. I've never had one in the dozens ordered from them including the Braxton mentioned. Outside from lots of good Braxton, the Sun Ra in La Fenice is really nice for a rare solo piano disc, the Ganelin trio as mentioned (from the great Ancora da capo to their recent co-production with a bookstore in Shenzhen, China, which is also a nicely produced record), the Evan Parker 50th birthday concert is a high energy date and great record, some early Mat Maneri, Joelle Léandre (the recent 14 rue Paul Fort is very nicely recorded), Nabatov's A few incidences, Gebbhard Ullmann... There are many good ones to pick. I will certainly get some of the Shipp/ Perelman batch among a few others.
  14. Pauline Oliveros - To Valerie Solanas and Marilyn Monroe in Recognition of their Desperation (Roaratorio)
