  1. Abdullah Ibrahim, tomorrow at Jazz à la Villette in Paris.
  2. Yes, in the Latin quarter (and I believe in the suburbs too), really nice store.
  3. Interesting, thanks! Also good to see more labels looking into INA recordings.
  4. In the basque region right now (where paternal side is from). Cooking, swimming, occasional hikes, tapas, etc. The local Ravel festival this year celebrates Xenakis' 100th, so will be seeing a concert.
  5. Paul Bley

    Thank you, I do have access to a University library and hadn't thought of trying to borrow it through this type of inter-city book exchange program.
  6. The guitar corner

    After 5-6 years without an electric, got a latter period Jacobacci strat model with Schaller pickups (SSH configuration) and a Fender Champ 12 tube amp (red knob) to work again. Very happy with this.
  7. Paul Bley

    Stopping Time, Paul Bley's autobiography with David Lee is hard to find, at least in Europe. Would really enjoy reading it, if ever anyone has tips to find a copy.
  8. BFT #220 reveal

    Thank you Pim for the very interesting selection! Two that I have listened to in recent months (one on Bandcamp, the other borrowed on CD from local library) and should have thought about are the Khan Jamal and Vijay Iyer. The Iyer trio seems especially obvious now in hindsight. Many other albums that I have never heard and will listen to during the summer, thanks again!
  9. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    Same here, Barcelona to Paris. On CD1, great sound, and already impressive variety. Thick booklet with interesting pictures.
  10. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    Got it from jazz messengers, should be arriving today or tomorrow!
  11. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    Yes, apparently around the 20th but could be longer.
  12. BFT#220

    Have to listen some more (and will gladly!).
  13. BFT#220

    Hi, enjoyed listening to the selection. Baker/ Twardzik: great partnership. I've heard number 8, searching for it. Track 11 is japanese traditional "Sakura", haven't heard this Mal album.
