  1. "Compost" by Jack DeJohnette (1971)

    Update: I listened to both Compost albums on Spotify and found that while they’re still not really classics I enjoy them more now than 10 years ago. A few weeks later I found the CD’s in a box while looking for something else and listened to them again. I have now added them on the shelf with my other Jack De Johnette CD’s.
  2. "Compost" by Jack DeJohnette (1971)

    Man, I have no memory of having started this topic. I do remember the part of the story not included in the thread though..in about 2010 Wounded Bird reissued both Compost albums on CD and I bought them. I wasn’t too impressed to be honest. Rereading this thread inspires me to pull them out of storage and give them another try...especially to hear the second side of the first one. Or I could listen to them on Spotify (I see they have both Compost albums there...) https://www.amazon.com/Life-Round-Compost/dp/B004708KAG https://www.amazon.com/Compost/dp/B004708JZW
  3. Fellow Music fans, I have a ticket for Glenn Hughes (ex- Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, etc.) show at Rams Head on Stage in Annapolis, MD. It was originally scheduled for last month, but it was postponed to August due to Glenn's knee surgery. I was very excited to see this show, but unfortunately I have just found out that I have to be in Europe at that time, to help a sick family member, and won't be able to attend. Would any of you want the ticket? If so please let me know and we can discuss the details off line. I'm not looking to make a profit here, just trying to make sure that the ticket doesn't go to waste. Best, Henry. www.ramsheadonstage.com/event/977267-glenn-hughes-annapolis

  5. Happy Birthday Alexander!

    Happy (belated) Birthday as well!
  6. Guilty pleasure - Uriah Heep

    I like Uriah Heep too. My favorites are "Demons & Wizards" and "The Magician's Birthday." I also have "The Ultimate Collection"(2-disc best of). I first became interested in UH when I read about them in the liner notes to a Deep Purple remaster. UH also remind me at times of early Yes.
  7. Kevin Coyne Recommendations?

    Thanks. I love "Silence" not only because I am big fan of Pinter but also because I love the way Wyatt, Bley and Coyne are inspired to sing by Mantler's music which is a very enjoyable kind of jazz-latin-rock fusion. I guess I was hoping that Coyne as a solo artist was more like Wyatt than he was...
  8. I'm a big fan of Robert Wyatt and on Alexander's recommendation I picked up Michael Mantler's Edward Gorey album "The Hapless Child" with Wyatt on vocals. I liked it so much I also checked out Mantler's Pinter album "Silence" with Wyatt, Carla Bley and Kevin Coyne on vocals. I liked that very much too, which inspired me to investigate Coyne. I picked up "Marjory Razorblade" and while I like it, I find the backing a bit sparse at times and wonder if anyone here has any suggestions for a Kevin Coyne album with a jazzier backing, somewhat akin to "Silence" or was that a one of a kind event for Coyne?
  9. Jarrett/Hayden/Motion Trio in the '70's?

    Thanks for all the replies.
  10. A few weeks ago I was watching Keith Jarrett videos on YouTube and I saw a great one of him playing "Moonchild" (from the album with Gary Burton) with Charlie Hayden and Paul Motian on a European (?) tv programme in the '70's (to judge by Keith's 'fro and Paul Motian's pony tail). The footage has on it the logo "1 +" (One Plus), perhaps the name of the show. My question: did Keith often tour his American group but without Dewey Redman? Perhaps only in Germany? What was the show with "Moonchild"? Were they on other European tv programmes during that period? Based on what I could find in my own reading, it seems that during the '70's Keith generally recorded either with one of his quartets (American or European), solo or with or some mixed large group. Did he ever record his American trio during the '70's? I know they recorded in the '60's for Atlantic a few times, but the only clue I could find that they ever recorded as a trio in the '70's was a reference to a German jazz workshop recording in 1972 that was on a various artists collection, but I couldn't find any track listing. Anyone know anything about this?
  11. I got the regular two-disc version at Borders when it came out on Tuesday. Have been listening to it on and off ever since.
  12. This wasn't exactly last night, but I saw Iron Maiden in Maryland on June 18. This was part of their Somewhere Back In Time - World Tour '08 in Columbia, Maryland, at the Merriweather Post Pavilion. Setlist: 01. Intro - Churchill's Speech 02. Aces High 03. 2 Minutes to Midnight 04. Revelations 05. The Trooper 06. Wasted Years 07. The Number of the Beast 08. Run to the Hills 09. Rime of the Ancient Mariner 10. Powerslave 11. Heaven Can Wait 12. Can I Play With Madness? 13. Fear of the Dark 14. Iron Maiden ----------------------------- 15. Moonchild 16. The Clairvoyant 17. Hallowed Be Thy Name Quote on tour on the web: "IRON MAIDEN's Somewhere Back In Time - World Tour '08 trek revisits the band's incredible history by focusing almost entirely on the '80s in both choice of songs played and the stage set, which is based around the legendary Egyptian production of the 1984-85 Powerslave tour. This is arguably be the most elaborate and spectacular show the band have ever presented, and includes some key elements of their Somewhere In Time tour of 1986/7, such as the Cyborg Eddie."" My comments: the concert was great fun. Amidst the ornate sets singer Bruce Dickinson changed costumes a few times and for "Powerslave" even wore a mask like he wore on the '80's tours, somewhat akin to the ones Peter Gabriel used to wear in Genesis. The show is a kind of revival presentation they're doing until their new album comes out and they start touring that, Bruce said. They played material from their classic albums from 1983-1992 mainly, with a few earlier songs. I was very happy to hear them play some of my favorites, especially "Revelations": "Our earthly leaders faulter/Our people drift and die…"
  13. Jack Bruce & Robin Trower - Seven Moons

    I picked this up when it came out in February. Liked it a lot then, still enjoying it. My favorites tunes are "Distant Places of the Heart" and "She's Not the One." The drummer on "Seven Moons", Gary Husband, also plays with John McLaughlin (I saw them play together at a show at George Washington University). (I also enjoy "BLT" and "Truce," the two '80's Jack and Robin albums...) I would love to see Jack and Bruce tour "Seven Moons." Doesn't look like it will happen though. Robin Trower came to Alexandria, VA around the time "Seven Moons" was released, but Jack wasn't with him so nothing from the new album was played. Jack will be coming to Virginia this summer as part of a package tour, but Robin won't be with him and so the band will probably stick to blues tunes or old Cream favorites, I suppose. I'm still going anyway though, I've never seen Jack live.
  14. Paul Davis, RIP

    Hmmmm.....
  15. New Verve Group Reissues

    Here! Borders actually had these? Color me surprised! Thanks, Big Al. I must have missed that thread. I also notice I didn't see the Kenny Burrell. I was surprised to see them in Borders too, by the way. It was the one in Friendship Heights (Chevy Chase), next to the DC/MD border. I moved in January and this is now the one closest to me.
