  1. Peter Brötzmann Corner

    I have been on a Peter Brotzmann kick for the last two years straight. Not only do I find almost every recording he's made consistantly rewarding, but even his side projects are very notable. The first Brotzmann cd I ever bought was Machine Gun and everytime I listen to it, I can pick out something new that I didn't hear previously. The three-prong attack of Brotz, Willem Breuker and Evan Parker has got to be one of the most startling things I have ever heard in music. Over the years, Brotzmann seems to have never let up, or gone "soft" as his recordings with the Chicago Tentet have shown. So what are your impressions? What do you own by Brotzmann? This is what I have: Machine Gun-FMP No Nothing-FMP Wie Das Leben So Spielt-FMP Die Like A Dog-FMP Little Birds Have Fast Hearts Vol I-FMP Little Birds Have Fast Hearts Vol II-FMP Brotzmann Chicago Tentet +2-Broken English-Okka Disk Brotzmann Chicago Tentet +2-Short Visit to Nowhere-Okka Disk Brotzmann Chicago Tentet-Stone/Water-Okka Disk Brotzmann Chicago Tentet-Images-Okka Disk Die Like a Dog Quartet-From Valley to Valley-Eremite Nipples-Calig/UMS Fuck De Boere-Hr?/UMS For Adolphe Sax-FMP?/UMS FMP 0130-FMP/UMS Berlin Djungle-FMP/UMS Alarm-FMP/UMS Pica Pica-FMP/UMS Balls-FMP/UMS Scharzwaldfahrt-FMP/UMS Last Exit: Iron Path-Virgin Venture Last Exit-Enemy Koln-ITM CD
  2. This seems like fun! I'll start:
  3. Joe Henderson '60s Blue Note

    I love to hear the connection that Joe had with KD; makes total sense and frankly there is no 60's side project (respectively) they did that was not a success (in my mind). Love KD's records with Joe too.
  4. Joe Henderson '60s Blue Note

    In n Out (top JH for me) Our Thing (Andrew Hill, esp.) Mode for Joe (Sloppy at times but still a blistering record) You can't go wrong with 60's Joe at BN, they're all worth getting,
  5. Harold Land recommendations please

    Mentioned many times,The Fox is a must. Besides everything else with Hutch, if u can find it, get Xocia's Dance as mentioned is a find, but its on Muse so it can be a pain in the ass to find.
  6. Ornette Coleman - RIP

    Not here enough n I had to hear this terrible news from a friend. This is our Music, in my opinion, is the badassit record period: everyone is pissed off on the jacket n theres a white guy there just as pissed looking: brilliant photography, but the music is just as aggressive. OC knocked me sideways with this record.
  7. Great Finds

    . Nice score on tauhid. Someone must've not known that's a $30+ record at least.
  8. Happy Birthday Jim Hall

    Jim Hall is one of the best, up there with the best like in the ranks of Wes n Joe. Happy bday!
  9. Jackie McLean's Post-1975 Recordings (All Labels)

    That's an awesome story !
  10. Jackie McLean's 1950's Prestige Recordings

    Mcleans scene is a fav just because it really shows his erupt style in the prestige era: flawed brutal and brilliant all wrapped up in a sleeve photo that really shows his state: wicked package n a wicked date. 456 is a near top fav too.
  11. Jackie McLean's 1960's Blue Note Recordings

    Side note: bout soul sounds like it could've been an ESP date.
  12. Jackie McLean's 1960's Blue Note Recordings

    Listened today to some CDs who maybe some don't amount to jackies best 60's work, but I put on swing swang swingin ( ha, the only jmac my wife at the time found listenable) tippin' n consequence, and although they didn't knock me sideways, I certainly did enjoy them for what they're worth: the progression of a man trying a sort of styles that ultimately sounded like Jackie n no one else. And that is whats so enjoyable is that no matter the project it was his project. Reid miles adds to the excitement too, his album covers of the period were the sense of urgency: get this record now!!! Glad to own of his what I have. Yup to hipnosis n hi frequency as single disc reissues....
  13. Jackie McLean's 1960's Blue Note Recordings

    Starting with let freedom to demons dance is a treasure: u get Jackie pushing it to back to hard bop n to me I'd wish he'd got more pointed (esp with ornettte) but I don't leave this work unamused; indeed I turn to let freedom ring n new n old gospep most
  14. Worst Rock Drummers

    Brotzz Sharrock?
  15. Worst Rock Drummers

    At an all time low ginger baker went back to his roots n went straight back to jazz (anyone own no material)?
  16. Worst Rock Drummers

    much love for ginger he sparred (on his own accord) with Blakey Elvin etc to show his talents ( he is talented n Blakey for arguments sake fell back on his usual technique) we're cool despite his doichebag behaviors but I wanted to correct a mistake I made about Phil Collins in this thread where I dismissed him; I couldn't be more wrong I'm embarrassed n wanted to clear up much love for his contribution to what's made genesis so great.
  17. Happy Birthday Rudy Van Gelder

    Played a prestige w 50th modern jazz q/milt Jackson 5tet on my daughters new turntable while explaining rudys techniques and although her turntable was not top shelf ( she digs records and all that is involved!) his recording popped like a motherfucker nearly 60 years later n she said dad when was this recorded? Happy bday rvg, because of your engineering n progress in capturing sound my daughter knows who you are. Stay healthy n hopefully more years to come.
  18. Bobby Hutcherson's health status

    God bless him, my favorite vibist.
  19. Monk opinions sought

    As stated above Thad Jones is a treasure , grab anything you can
  20. Pharoah Sanders, Thembi

    I find the impulse period to be the best and although I don't reach for thembi first I did now n now on track 3 this is hell yeah pharoah (Cecil McBee's on it so yeah!) grab it if u have the cash, u won't be dissapointed if u like his music, imo
  21. Bobby Hutcherson's health status

    And to think the nazis were the first to realize the dangers of smoking.
  22. Happy Birthday, Justin V

    Have a good one fellow clevelander
  23. Monk opinions sought

    I mean monk made sense to me in stages: to move from the bn to prestige to riverside to Columbia: he makes sense in terms of progression n that doesn't necessarily mean moving forward but hovering; it sometimes means where is monk now? N where he was in the mid 60's worked for me.
  24. Monk opinions sought

    To me neat snipets of a comfortable time in monks career; I tend towards the Tokyo date but really like all the Columbia live releases from this time
