  1. What music did you buy today?

    ditto... both new Threadgills and Five Blokes disc too ...
  2. Me too. The original album is ok - quite nice really. The bonus tracks are indeed better . Hubert Laws tenor sax ... who knew
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Bill Barron -----Compilation-------(Cadence) Odd title given that this a concert performance and not a compilation in the usual sense. Recorded in Wesleyan University (1988?) Interesting as you might expect. Judging by the liner notes by his widow Anna there is much unreleased BB in her basement collection of tapes.
  4. Remnants of an earlier life

    "Only what we like since 1967", ! ! !
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The small series of recordings that came out of Brazil on Sesc are a fine Braxton, a solid William Parker and Roscoe's Sustain and Run.
  6. Cecil Taylor RIP

    They also have a very interesting Mary Halvorson set which is well worth hearing. Beautifully recorded and HQ video.
  7. This arrived yesterday, having been ordered back in November last year. The great south american river came through eventually. Bought on the strength that the same label had done a very nice job of reissuing a Kosuke Mine LP (mentioned here a few weeks ago). This is good too. Masaru Imada-----Green Catepillar-------(TBM/Le Tres jazz Club)
  8. I've sniffed my collection and concluded what whilst Mosaics smell dandy any time of the day, it's really shellac that has the most distinctive aroma. However stumbling around with 78s first thing is only likely to lead to breakage. So instead this morning it was the Herbie Nichols set with a strong coffee. Breathe deep and smile.

    thanks for that tip, listening to it now.
  10. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This is great Pullen and Murray in cracking form. Got this at the time of release. I was hoovering up any Murray I could find. I went a bit cold thereafter but returning to his music of the 70-mid 90s , I find none of it wanting. Estimation restored.
  11. Joachim Kühn------This way out--------(MPS) One LP is the piano trio the other adds Gerd Dudek to good effect. Solid effort which seems undervalued on discogs IMO.
  12. Happy Birthday Larry Kart!

    Happy Birthday.................we need another book btw
  13. I followed his career pretty closely until the late 80s. Then more intermittently. I've really never come across anything bad even "Almost Blue" had it's moments of his more recent material the collaboration with Allen Toussaint The River in Reverse and MOMFUKU really stand out. The latter album recalls the post-punk anger of This Years Model or the later Blood and Chocolate. I've got a great deal of time for him.
  14. Elvis Costello——-This Year’s Model——-(Radar UK) declan is still a firm favourite with me. Bought this in 1979 as a 12 year old.
