  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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...
  4. 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.
  5. 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).
  6. Stanley Cowell, R I P

    Oh no! RIP
  7. I've had the CD for a week or so, unfortunately CD player is just out of order right now and will have to find another way to listen to it. The above discussion is surprising considering all the talk that accompanies every Resonance release. King Ubu should have been editorial director for this release. Is this bootleg to be found anywhere?
  8. Julius Hemphill Box Set

    Looking forward to this!
  9. Just bought this from over the Channel, LP box. It's quite wonderful.
  10. Thanks for posting this. I will get it too once it is available locally.
  11. Recent news on Keith Jarrett had me revisiting his Sun Bear series of live recordings in november 1976 in Japan. Beautifully edited boxset (I have it on LP). The box set is very wide ranging (and distinct from many other KJ projects). Just enjoyed Nagoya and Tokyo now.
  12. Derek Bailey

    Figuring is indeed excellent! Thank you for all the comments. Ephiphany/Epiphanies gets on my next purchase list then as well as some others.
  13. Derek Bailey

    Tending to always come back to Derek Bailey and to expand my collection, I was wondering if there were any favorites among the Honest Jons output of the last couple of years, especially among some of the Company sessions which weren't previously released on Incus CDs? The only one I have picked up from them was Aida. Dart Drug is great but already have it on CD, as for some others.
  14. Joe McPhee

    Thank you for the great article! Those memoirs to come will be something. Happy birthday!
  15. I have been moved by many American songs though I wouldn't define them as being just that. I might be off topic here, but middle and late Billie Holiday comes to mind first. I've read Szwed's Billie Holiday: The musician and the Myth and largely agree with its main thesis (which would apply also to many blues musicians), but still... This video in particular, with Mal Waldron, I saw first in one of Washington's Smithsonian art museums. Billie's expresssion and movements, the tempo, etc. :
