  1. Cecil Taylor Warsaw 1968 presumably unissued

    The 1968 set arrived a few days ago. Sound is excellent and CT seems on fine form. I'm not enough of an CT aficionado to know where it might sit in his solo oeuvre but I liked what I heard first time around.
  2. I ended up getting the LP from an eBay seller a few weeks after release here in the UK for list price. It took ages to arrive and I was convinced it was a scam but a bona fide Tyler set arrived in immaculate condition. The music was all new to me and is just wonderful. The weird bits (Mary Parks) make sense when heard in the context of the concert program. Love it.
  3. Borje Fredriksson

    I think only Intervall was issued in his life time. The self titled album on EMI/Odeon was issued posthumously. His compositions were revived by a group call Sister Maj's Blouse - which has Joakim Milder on tenor sax, Bobo Stenson , Fredrik Noren and Palle Danielsson- two or three CDs were issued
  4. VPI Cleaning Fluid Issues

    I keep working strength solution of L'art du Son in the fridge because it has developed cloudiness in the past. I go through very slowly these days as I'm not buying much used vinyl so the fridge keeps the solution clear.
  5. I didn't go for the '79 set but settled on the '73 as it got the nod in Jazzwize fwiw. Interestingly the CD version is around £55-60 on pre-order which makes 150 euros from JM seem very reasonable indeed. I for one rather hate the RSD effect of bouncing me into purchases without the chance to hear much in the way of samples prior to release day. It's obviously a business model which must work well for Resonance etc
  6. Ayler is always interesting and the Fondation Maeght stuff is worth hearing even if it's uneven but this set was too pricey. Especially as I've already spent too much on darkroom equipment this month. I'm waiting on the CD edition as I picked up the Mingus and the Evans (73) on RSD from a local church.
  7. Live Evil by Miles Davis

    I've been listening to a lot early-late Miles (i.e. 68-75) and I find it uniformly interesting. I'd agree that Big Fun and GIWI are bit random in their programming and coherence but I like them fine just as they are. OTC is astonishingly different and sounds advanced even for 2022. The only thing I'm less convinced by is the use of sitar on In Concert. I've not had that disc too long so it may gel yet. I'd be all over any Sony Bootleg edition from any of this period.
  8. great bit of footage. I've had a soft spot for Lowe since seeing him play with Billy Bang, Sirone and Dennis Charles in the late 80s.
  9. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    The Earle Spencer material is on Spotify (as reissued by Fresh Sound). I've hear enough B&W 78s to know that I'll be an interesting voyage of discovery for me.
  10. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    that is a good one ! I liked it a lot. must dig it out
  11. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    This is the sort of set that Mosaic does so well and is a great service to the music. Ordered
  12. Don Cherry---Eternal Rhythm -----(MPS/BaSF)
  13. Got my copy today for £35 , which is pretty good and unlikely to be bettered even if it is a little noisy in parts
  14. Howard Riley-The Day will come—(CBS UK) Immaculate copy with no signs of play but with plenty of authentic groove noises in the way that CBS pressings of this era do so well
  15. Spirits Rejoice ! - Albert Ayler and his message - Peter Niklas Wilson newly publish first edition in English. I believe this is the only biography of Ayler.
