  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Guus Janssen ———Meeting Points————(bimhaus) A single disc from six different sessions from 1999-2014. Lots of highlights including 3 tracks of a quartet with Michael Moore . Meeting Point the title track comes from a fine duet with Lee Konitz.
  2. I’ve pre-ordered mine from Amazon UK as I assumed that shipping from US would be prohibitively costly
  3. GoFundMe Campaign for Ted Brown

    Thanks for starting a new thread on this. I love Ted's playing. Not a huge discography but a fine one. He deserves support.
  4. Just upping this again
  5. Anita Brown, Ted’s daughter has established a go-fund-me page for Ted. He’s healthy but has fallen on hard times financially since the death of his wife in March.
  6. If anyone is put off by the presence of voices on some tracks , I’d say don’t be! I'm always a little hesitant about recordings with choirs but here they’re central to the whole vibe and work incredibly well. Plenty of instrumentalists to admire too but I really love the whole thing. Immaculate release .
  7. Spinning disc four. Impressive set in very good sound. I’m trying to read the French liner notes hoping to find some information regarding the circumstances of the recording. Pretty amazing historical discovery.
  8. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    What a start!!
  9. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Agreed on all points. Wish I’d switched off early too. Very poor advert for the beautiful game.
  10. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    I’m hoping for a good game. Let’s face that the Europa League final was abysmal and that wasn’t just Arsenal’s performance. As a Gooner I’m ambivalent who wins tonight but I’ll definitely be watching. Spurs got to be underdogs and therefore deserve to lose badly😀.

    Jeanne Lee/ Ran Blake—————-The newest sound - you never heard———-(A side records) absolutely as good as expected. Excellent release
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Good album. I’ve got the second cover on my copy.
  13. Franz Koglmann——-Opium————(Blackmonk) excellent reissue of Pipe Records seventies LP
  14. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Milford Graves——-Babi———-(CvsD) not sure what to make of this one. Perhaps it’s me rather than the music. I made mistake of playing unreleased disc 2 first. It features underwater recordings of Arthur Doyle and Hugh Glover honking, screaming over tornado like sounds of Graves. Easy listening I wasn’t expecting but this make Akira Sakata seem like David Sanborn. The sound of the first disc is much better being recorded properly but the music is violent and visceral as ever. It’s exceptionally challenging and could only be safely played when Mrs Clunky was out of the house. Even the dogs seemed to struggle giving me the ‘why did you take off that nice Blake/Lee disc to play this!!!’ Anyone else to listened and able to enlighten me. I’ll give it plenty of more spins to see if I can “get it”. Might take some time.....
  15. Just arrived and spinning right now. Nice package and excellent audio quality. Up to Dark Tree’s usual high standards. Fully authorised by Horace’s family. Very impressed
