  1. Bandcamp waiving fees on Friday

    I think I bought 15 things today. I tend to splash out since I am not seeing shows or doing much of anything for myself these days!
  2. British jazz reissues

    ooh, will have to check that although I already sprung for too much on Bandcamp today.
  3. Your Favorite Jazz Records of the 1980s?

    those are both excellent. Really love the Clark Memorial especially.
  4. Alan Braufman – Valley Of Search reissue

    Fifteen Saxophones, on Northern Light/Wergo, reissued on Unseen Worlds (w/ liners by yrs truly) Having Been Built on Sand, a collaboration with Lawrence Weiner, which is also going to be reissued along w/ Solos and 4 Cuts Solo (CD from 2006)
  5. Alan Braufman – Valley Of Search reissue

    Dickie is a longtime friend so it's great to see this stuff coming out again indeed.
  6. Your Favorite Jazz Records of the 1980s?

    there's an 80s repress of the LPs.
  7. Your Favorite Jazz Records of the 1980s?

    yeah, to me this is a level up on Black Bone.
  8. Alan Braufman – Valley Of Search reissue

    yes. I love the original but having blasted the transfers on headphones, it's ridiculous how good this stuff sounds. I am hopeful that at the pressing stage this good fortune continues.
  9. Alan Braufman – Valley Of Search reissue

    ah I did not see it on youtube. reissue comes straight from the master tapes and sounds fabulous.
  10. Your Favorite Jazz Records of the 1980s?

    rec. 1975, released '76 b/w, from '84, and excellent:
  11. Alan Braufman – Valley Of Search reissue

    SOLOS is mid-size ensemble free improvisation (four woodwinds, two basses doubling on brass, drums, electric piano), pretty rollicking. 4 CUTS is one drone-y group improvisation, a solo bass tune (overdubbed), saxophone solos and duos.
  12. Hardest Instruments to Listen To Played Badly

    Bagpipes are great. I'm all about some traditional highland piping, and Yoshi Wada as well.
  13. Hardest Instruments to Listen To Played Badly

    my upstairs neighbor, who sadly just moved out, is learning clarinet at 26 inspired by Eric Dolphy. I gotta say I'm pumped and it was cool to hear him practice. He's a very hard worker and a sweet guy, so I'm sure he'll have fun with it. He was already a musician (electronics and guitar, mostly) but had not done anything with reed instruments as far as I know.
  14. Alan Braufman – Valley Of Search reissue

    He's amazing with Dickie Landry on Chatham Square in the early 70s; that material will be rereleased this year.
  15. Alan Braufman – Valley Of Search reissue

    Bandcamp also will be stocking them.
