  1. Tell Us How Much You Love Ernie Henry

    I have one of those OJC limited editions, but its packed away. I was happy to see it (long out of print) and happy to have it. He's no Jackie, but I'm not arguing he is
  2. David S. Ware

    Man, he just came up in my thoughts, miss this dude, big time.
  3. Michael Henderson 1951-2022

    Wow, what a loss, RIP
  4. UNIQLO BN T-Shirts

    Just dreaming, but if I was independently wealthy, with a bottomless pit of cash, I'd just go ahead and order t-shirts of the entire BN 1500 and 4000 series, plus Patrick Roques Connoisseurs. Patterns would be pretty sweet.
  5. Don Cherry corner

    Still confused. Huh? What does this suggest? Some sort of conformity on what we mean by "avant"?. I'm further confused. Sorry, admitting my ignorance; guess this is where my observations come and get back at me. I'm just a listener, not a musician; on the other hand, thanks for laying down some more artists to listen to! Yeah, thanks everyone for these posts! I really like how all of you phrased your thoughts on this! Sorry, JSngry for the confusion I started!

  7. Don Cherry corner

    Still not following. Agree, about Gato in 66 and 76, apples and oranges is the talk to be had, but what Gato was in the 60's was certainly "reinvented" in the 70's. I mean there are a slew of players who did this: Ayler (in the 60's) Klemmer, Byrd, Miles even. I guess I just still don't understand your comment. All I'm pointing out is that this live Cherry set is awesome, is all. I never pin-pointed Gato at all. Special. Great record. Weirdly, Cherry and Blackwell had this bond much akin to Ornette and Haden's bond. That seemed to be the recording history after BN (still have a soft spot for the Empty Fox Hole) and the Impulse(s)! You get the sense these guys were going to play together in one format or another until they draw their last breaths. (and they all did) fascinating!
  8. Rare sessions, never reissued?

    Woah. Sun Ra-ish sounding, I think I read here a thread/tie between Hill and Ra talking/collaborating in Chicago in the 50's (dunno who or where)
  9. Don Cherry corner

    I'm not following a word you said here. Gato? 60's v. 70's? Why don't we talk about 60's v. 70's George Benson? Irrelevant.
  10. Don Cherry corner

    Cherry's BN's are spectacular, and to think who he had as sideman....wow! We don't even need to rehearse the Atlantics with Ornette (beside the one will seemingly never hear) Wow!
  11. At first, I thought this was a Patrick Roques design, but it's not! I dig it. I like the cover and it looks "period" to me. Music's great, the more I listen to it, the more I like it!
  12. About Patrick Roques, I believe he carried the Reid Miles torch very fine, and the Connoisseur series album covers he either designed or gave a "facelift" to were very fine indeed: Patterns, Medina, Jack Knife, Solid, Vertigo, Third Season, Thinking of Home, Dance with Death (all the Hills he designed) were awesome! Is he still active? Is he designing the Tone Poets covers now (that weren't originally issued?) What does he look like? Is he alive? Can't even find an image of this dude on Google even.
  13. Rare sessions, never reissued?

    Curious what these are?
  14. Don Cherry corner

    Since this is a Don Cherry corner, I'd like to add that I still think his three BN's are superb as well as the live set released by ESP (three volumes me thinks) Why not did ESP make this a boxset?
  15. Grew on me, love this album! Especially the second cut, "Close Your Eyes" Woah.
