  1. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Again, we don't really know the details. According to initial press-release by Outhere, Uehlinger was supposed to stay with them curating new Hat releases. He could have brought them all these projects, and they told him they are not interested. So he said "Gopfetori you Tubel, I will release this myself!". And he did. Lucky us?

    Steve, thanks for sharing your live impressions, very interesting. I think I saw Maneri live only once - with Joe Morris group, about 20 years ago. I hated it, mostly because of Morris's boring verbose playing. For me my favorite Maneri is still his three old Trio (with Randy Peterson and Ed Schuller) albums on Leo (which can be now bought for GBP 2.50 each as a part of the Leo end-of-the-year sale). I would reiterate my recommendation for the "Fantasm" trio disc with Maurer and Ban (https://open.spotify.com/album/4T2KdOPqKlfOKIeBXR9S68), I think having another violin player in the group brings out more variety in Maneri's playing.
  3. Frank Zappa

  4. This is great. It's funny how they switch between English, French and Russian (and a bit of German). Stravinsky seems to be such a nice guy. Don't know Nabokov's music, will check it out.

    But "ezz-thetics" is not even the label name, it is just the name of the series. The legal entity is still Hat Hut Records Ltd. of Basel, Switzerland (see bottom right corner below).

    If it were an outright purchase it would not have been "Hat Hat for Outhere" I think... Whatever, they are grown-ups, I guess they will figure it our between themselves. I only hope the back catalog (including hat ART 6000 series!) will remain available on Spotify. It will be funny if Uehlinger starts recompiling his previous Hat Hat releases for ezz-thetic imprint. In any case, he is releasing new music (and, surprisingly, a lot of it), and I am thankful for this.

    Well, we don't know the details. The new Outhere Hat Hat reissues state "for Outhere by Hat Hat" - this might be merely a licensing / distribution deal. In any case, I think it's safe to say that what's happening now is not what Outhere expected. Herr Ubu, care to investigate?

    Just ordered the Giuffre one today. Hard to say what Outhere plans to do with the Hat Hut catalog. They had just two CDs reissued in 2019 (Mengelberg and ROVA) and there is nothing listed in the "upcoming" section.

    An upcoming Polwechsel + Klaus Lang release on Hat Hut: https://www.hathut.com/ . A cause for celebration, as far as I am concerned - this is a fantastic band.
  10. hat [now] ART

    They are not difficult (or expensive) to find.
  11. hat [now] ART

    Yes for Schönberg and Feldman albums. Also, Tenney and Lou Harrison stuff is good. Soviet Avantgarde piano works (both volumes) are strong, if a bit frenetic in Schleiemacher's hands. Both Polwechsel releases are classic, were hugely innovative at the time of their release. And Wolff's "Early Piano Pieces" (with much more restrained Schleiemacher here)! All the hat[now]ART releases (as well as other Hat Hut stuff) are available at Spotify.
  12. George Coleman's "The Quartet"

    This does not look like Coleman.
  13. Preferred Streaming Service for Jazz

    Amazon, Apple and Spotify probably have the same selection. Once the rights owners decide to go streaming there is no incentive for them to limit themselves to just one service. I use Spotify because I have this cheap Gramofon (https://gramofon.com) thingy (I don't even know what it's called - router? DAC?) that allows me to play Spotify on my old audio system, and I think it does not work with amazon yet. But I might switch to amazon because it's slightly cheaper (for Prime members) and because of the impending HD streaming, although I am honestly just fine with whatever the top resolution on Spotify is.

    A new (actually, recorded in 2001) digital release by Tobis Delius, Cor Fuhler and Dylan van der Schyff: https://whirrboom.bandcamp.com/album/fietstour . I skimmed through, sounds very nice. And it's a "name your price" download, cheapskates rejoice! Well, all van der Schyff bandcamp releases are "name your price": https://whirrboom.bandcamp.com/music
