  1. Horace Tapscott Live at IUCC

    amazon.co.uk have a release date of 22/3. I've been on a bit of Tapscott binge lately having listened in sequence to Vols 8-11 of his solo material on Nimbus.
  2. David Wertman————Kara Suite——-(Mustevic Sound) pulled this one randomly off the shelves for the first time in a while. Plenty of energy in this free jazz blow out. Charles Tyler and Ken Simon battle it out on the saxes. Drum, bass and a french horn make up the group. Recording is pretty dark to muddy but the music is clear enough.
  3. Rendell/ Carr——-Dusk Fire——-(Jazzman) Strange but true this music is entirely new to me. It’s been on the list for years but I’d not pulled the trigger until now. All five Jazzman reissues landed today ( sans box) . Very impressed by the music and the presentation. Lovely quiet vinyl.
  4. European Pianists

    I’ve just come across Draksler on a trio disc on Intakt. The sound the group achieve on PUNKT.VRT.PLASTIK is pretty astounding. It’s been on repeat without leaving my CD player for nearly 3 weeks. Need to prise it out , to play the new solo disc by label mate Hawkins ....
  5. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    I’ve preordered because i want to support Mosaic i don’t have Thinking of Home and the unreleased tracks
  6. Ed Bickert, RIP

    Sad news. I’ll need to look through discogs to remind me of sessions known to me , that he played on.
  7. I think that’s a pretty good idea, neglected musician who kept pretty extraordinary company. Wasn’t Sonny’s debut on Gonzales side.
  8. This is right up there with Art’s best
  9. Sun Ra——-Monorails & Satellites Vol 1-3———-(Cosmic Myth) first impression of today’s arrival is off a nicely put together package. Sound is generally cleaner compared to the rather dull sound of the Evidence CD I have of Vol 1. There is some distortion evident on louder parts of Alter Destiny ( end of side 1) which I don’t hear on the Evidence CD. This may be because NoNoise buried that detail and others on the CD! Pressing quality as with other Cosmic Myth releases is very good- generally very quiet and excellent dynamics.
  10. Eronel- disc 2 is good. Departs a fair bit from Monk’s usual take.
  11. I’m afraid I ditched the Rod Levitt album pictured. I had to say goodbye to around 100 LPs in a vain attempt to keep the collection under control. It’s not bad by any means but didn’t grab me enough.
  12. Favorite Horn Trio Records

    Coe, Oxley & Co. ------------Nutty on Willisau---------(HatArt) This trio LP is new to me but has made a good impression. It was released on CD too.
  13. Thanks. I picked up a bunch of Fischer sides on Revelation/MPS and Discovery (jazzhouserecords.co.uk) Some solo stuff, lots with Gary Foster and his sort of Latin group- Salsa Picante. There’s not a dud amongst them.
