  1. Snurdy

    I see i started this thread 16 years ago and that Snurdy was my first Nessa release. I think now I've got pretty much all of them on CD or LP or both ( although not yet got Eftsoons). Snurdy was also the starting point for me following (as much as I could afford) the fantastic music of Roscoe Mitchell. Never a dull moment.....
  2. Snurdy

    Just received "Snurdy McGurdy..." This is a great little album, just up my street. Incredible that its 20 years old as it sounds very fresh. Spaced out free balads to avant funk work outs, it work very well indeed. At first I thought it was a pity that Chuck hadn't unearthed any extras (it's only 40 mins long) but I see that as it stands it's way better than many overly long CDs. Small but perfectly formed. My first Nessa, anything else like it in Nessa stable ?
  3. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Good summary . On the evidence of this match England (and the other teams ) still have a long way to go . A deserved win by USA.
  4. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Good half with both teams pushing it. USA look super strong. I’m sure it’ll be their night
  5. 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.
  6. I’ve pre-ordered mine from Amazon UK as I assumed that shipping from US would be prohibitively costly
  7. 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.
  8. Just upping this again
  9. https://www.gofundme.com/assistance-for-jazz-tenor-sax-nonagenarian 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.
  10. 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 .
  11. 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.
  12. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    What a start!!
  13. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Agreed on all points. Wish I’d switched off early too. Very poor advert for the beautiful game.
  14. 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
  16. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Good album. I’ve got the second cover on my copy.
  17. Franz Koglmann——-Opium————(Blackmonk) excellent reissue of Pipe Records seventies LP
  18. 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.....
  19. 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
  20. Lee Morgan-------The Sixth Sense-------(BN Liberty) blue/black label RVG on of the better later Lee Morgan dates. Having Jackie on board doesn't hurt. Must locate the CD to play the unreleased tracks as memory suggests they were pretty good too.
  21. New DONATE button

    Small donation made. Curiously it's listed as "offline" when it was very much "online"
  22. Sad news . I always valued his opinions
  23. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Grudging respect to Spurs from me. ...
  24. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    An incredible game. Alexander-Arnold's corner was cheeky genius. The atmosphere sounded deafening . Cliched it may be but the crowd really were the 12th man last night.
