    The source for the No Business' LP/CD is an audience recording. The MAMAstudios managed to improve the rather muddy sound of the source considerably. So they did a very good job IMO.
  2. Fred Van Hove, R.I.P.

    The line-up is as follows. Kenny Wheeler, trumpet, flugelhorn Manfred Schoof, trumpet, flugelhorn, bach-trumpet Tomasz Stanko, trumpet Bernard Vitet, trumpet Albert Mangelsdorff, trombone Malcolm Griffiths, trombone Paul Rutherford, trombone, tenor horn Evan Parker, soprano & tenor saxophone Gerd Dudek, soprano & tenor saxophone, flute Michel Pilz, bass clarinet, flute, soprano saxophone Heinz Sauer, baritone, tenor & alto saxophone Peter Brötzmann, tenor & baritone saxophone, bassetthorn Derek Bailey, guitar Alexander Von Schlippenbach, piano, percussion J.B. "Buschi" Niebergall, bass, bass trombone Peter Kowald, bass, tuba Arjen Gorter , bass,electric-bass Han Bennink, drums, shell-horn, dhung, gachi Paul Lovens, drums, percussion Joachim-Ernst Berendt, announcement At the concert at least three titles were recorded and filmed. 1. Globe Unity 70 (A. von Schlippenbach) 17:51 2. Ode (M. Schoof) 12:54 3. Drunken in the Morning Sunrise (P. Brötzmann) 9:53 Recorded on November 7, 1970 at the Kongresshalle, Berlin. (track 1 was released on Atavistic [UMS/ALP 223CD]) Kowald is playing his tuba on "Drunken in the morning sunrise". The title of Brötzmann's tune "Drunken in the Morning Sunrise" reminds me about the circumstances for the recording sessions of "Machine Gun". Brötzmann and Buschi Niebergall went - after the first part of the session - for some beers. Eventually they took shelter for a nap at a building lot. Next morning Niebergall and Brötzmann woke up, had a mouthful of beer and went back to the "Lila Eule" for the second part of their recording session. But maybe the title is a general allusion to such a situation which should have happened quite frequently during those times. A truncated version of Ode is also available at youtube. Don't know how to add a video/link here so if interested please follow: Ode by M.Schoof
  3. Mark Turner, Return from the Stars

    Looking forward to the CD. In Germany it will be released on March 25. BTW: the title "Lathe of Heaven" probably refers to a SF book as well. The Lathe of Heaven is a book written by Ursula K. Le Guin from 1971. Seems Mark Turner likes some SF similar to Wayne Shorter.

    ...pavement pub? Does it mean that you're literally on the pub's outside enjoying a pint?
  6. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Yes I would prefer a CD as well. But if the music is on vinyl I take a vinyl (or even a cassette if necessary or whatever). ... Black Editions aquired the rights for the Japanese label PFS, which had only CDs. But not much has happened insofar.

    Interesting, never saw a CD jukebox. But The Three Crowns sounds nice: great pub and jukebox. My main interactions with a jukebox was at an old bavarian pub with a beer garden in summer. Plus they had (and still have) a bowling alley and on the other side of the buildings a shooting range for - I suppose - air riffles. And not at least there's an old big cannon from the German / French war 1870/71 on the right side of the area's entrance. All this a few hundreds meter away from the local peak from there one had a great view to the local lake (Starnberger See) and the mountains in the background. Now the trees are cutting any view into the distance.... seems my memory got a flash...

    Did you actually see jukeboxes in the 1990s? If memory serves me right I saw the last (ruined) jukebox sometime in 1987/88.
  9. Major label Free Jazz

    Yep I agree. Unfortunately the jukeboxes I experienced during the 1970s here in Bavaria didn't include such music....
  10. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Don't know wether this upcoming release was already mentioned here. Peter Brötzmann / William Parker / Milford Graves double LP is due for the end of January 2022 through Black Editions. Pre-order is available as of now (already ordered a copy).
  11. Hans Koller & Oscar Pettiford

    I have the LP and the sound and production is really good. Also did some research, after I've aquired the vinyl, wether the music is really previously unreleased and came to a positive result. Track B3 is not music but Koller telling some stories. All in all I'm happy with the edition although - if asked - I would rather recommend the Black Lion release. But for all those who enjoy the music of Pettiford/Koller/Zoller it's a no-brainer.

    I would like to add two observations. One I've made a few years ago and the other one only recently. 1. According the new book about Anthony Braxton (by Tim Hoyer; released this November in Germany / 700pp - ISBN 978-3-95593-000-4) Arista sold 20.000 copies of their Braxton LPs as of 1977. "For Trio", "For Four Orchestras" and "Alto Saxophone Improvisation 1979" weren't even released by then. 2. There's a jukebox version of John Coltrane's "Ascencion". Seems unbelieveable but take a look at Mats Gustafsson website.
  13. The artist of these pictures is definitely not Jutta Hipp but a German graphic designer, painter and film maker named Tony Munzlinger (*1934). The picture refering to Monk was used already for the British Band Spectrum (with a.o. Kenny Wheeler and Bobby Wellins). And there is a Woody Hermann compilation on Verve with another picture by this artist. These pictures are from his 1965 book titled "Jazz". Take a look at some of his pictures here.
  14. Hartmut Geerken RIP

    He had still so many plans - he wanted to be 96 years old. But his heart thwarted his plans. Maybe one day his two autobiographies (kind of - actually he didn't like autobiographies) will be translated into English. A friend and mentor - R.I.P.
  15. new Japanese Enja series in Jan

    The artist (the leader that is) for the proposed reissue on Blue Note never had a leader date on BN. I'm even quite sure that he was never on a Blue Note release at all. The pianist had leader dates on CD but not on LP, although he could have had it because of his age. Sorry but I won't reveal the name in public at this stage. As far as I recall it Matthias told me that the idea for this release came from a kind of poll Blue Note did some time ago. Is there something like a BN club or appreciation society related to Blue Note?
