  1. Clean Feed Records

    I don't disagree, all I've heard is mostly really solid stuff. But enough about this new shit. Let's discuss a Coltrane's rehearsal tape!!!!!!!! Or wish Happy Birthday to somebody who's been dead for 30 years!!!!!!
  2. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Anders Brødsgaard - Gakaxy. Excellent.
  3. Clean Feed Records

    I agree, the quality/quantity ratio is probably not the highest. But there is a lot of good stuff nonetheless. And lately their artwork has become really good. Here is one more I enjoy: https://cleanfeed-records.com/product/the-space-between/

    A lot of good stuff on this label. I like this one a lot: https://cleanfeed-records.com/product/so-soft-yet/
  5. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Well, if it does, here is some more wild Roslavets. This is on par with anything written at that time (1920s), as far as I am concerned. I don't think there are commercial recordings available.
  6. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Roslavets - Works for Piano Such an excellent, innovative composer, he could have probably written so much more were he not brutally persecuted.
  7. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    I am not the biggest fan of Haydn (although I greatly prefer him to Mozart, whom - with a few notable exceptions - I really cannot listen to), but this is nice music and excellent performance for sure.
  8. Trane Talk

    I agree. The sound is nasal and quite ugly, and range of expression us much narrower than with tenor. "My Favorite Things" album is probably my least favorite thing Coltrane recorded. The solos are sort of ornamental and very repetitive (and Tyner's solo on the title track is not much to talk about either), and I remember on "Every Time We Say Goodbye" the horn sounded rather out of tune. This is a tough horn to make sound good, and to my ears it did not work out for Coltrane. There were and are more interesting soprano saxophone players around.
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Fell / Comte - Panazol. Excellent stuff.
  10. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Fantastic performance of great music.
  11. Time to move on to a living artist - Dave Rempis

    I have a few of his older CDs (Triage on Okka, and something else), I think I even saw him live once (with Vandermark), and found him nothing special. But the tracks posted in the article sound really good. Will buy a couple of downloads. And it is great what he's doing in the music community, this is a lot of work, I guess.
  12. My favorite Mosaic, highly recommended.
  13. Buell Neidlinger RIP

    Sad to hear about Mr. Neidlinger's death. What an excellent musician. Releases on his K2B2 label are very enjoyable. Hope the distribution does not fold down with his passing.
  14. Funny Rat

    This was a fun thread. I have not listened to Herr Brötzmann in years, but right now I am listening to Jeff Platz / Kit Demos / John McLellan "On Pulsar": I did not know of Jeff Platz, but I was looking for something featuring very interesting drummer John McLellan (who sadly passed away since this thread started). Very happy I stumbled upon this trio recording, McLellan's playing is fascinating. John (or Johnny) McLellan can be heard on an outstanding duo CD with Joe McPhee 'Grand Marquis' (on Boxholder). I would probably disavow half of the recommendations I made in this thread back in the day, but 'Grand Marquis' is still one of my favorite Joe McPhee's recordings - 14 years after I mentioned it hear.
  15. Peter Scharli

    "I never go back to Europe!!!" Great CD, got it accidentally 15 years ago, have been listening to it regularly with pleasure. The guitarist on it, Giancarlo Nicolai, is outstanding. He had a couple of good records on Leo, but "Tomorrow" has his best playing (from what what I've heard, at least). Don't have anything else by Schärli, need to get me some, I guess.
