  1. Ennio Morricone (1928 - 2020)

    Yep. RIP.
  2. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    The Raincoats -- s/t -- (Rough Trade, UK orig) followed by Ronald Shannon Jackson & The Decoding Society -- Nasty -- (Moers, GER orig)
  3. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Fabulous set.
  4. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Indeed -- wanted to hear that stuff.
  5. Alan Braufman – Valley Of Search reissue

    Looks like there will be domestic CDs of these on the Valley of Search (VoS) label as well.
  6. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    wonder if we will see that planned International Phonograph box?
  7. Alan Braufman – Valley Of Search reissue

    the LP was reissued just shy of two years ago, actually, but the CD is good news indeed. The Fire Still Burns should be available pretty soon on LP as well.
  8. Simon H. Fell (1959-2020)

    sick -- never saw that before, and I will certainly read it.
  9. Simon H. Fell (1959-2020)

    According to collaborators, the English bassist, composer, and conceptualist Simon H. Fell has passed away at 61. Sad news -- a very individual individual!
  10. Jacques Coursil (1938-2020)

    sideman on Sunny Murray Quintet and Frank Wright "Your Prayer" as well as an unissued quartet date with Marion Brown, Reggie Johnson (apparently), and Rashied Ali.

  12. Jacques Coursil (1938-2020)

    According to his friend, writer Adam Shatz, the French-Martiniquan trumpeter and linguistics professor/theorist Jacques Coursil has passed at 82. He recorded as a leader for BYG and as a sideman with Frank Wright, Burton Greene, and Sunny Murray (along with unissued music with Marion Brown for ESP). He also studied with Bill Dixon. In 2005, he returned to recording with a CD for Tzadik and released several albums in succession. I always appreciated his sound and approach, and he seemed like a really interesting person though I never got the chance to meet or correspond with him. RIP.
  13. So, Jay Rosen?

    I certainly like his playing -- of course in Trio X with Joe McPhee and the dearly departed Dominic Duval, as well as with Cosmosamatics. There is a fine drum duo CD he made a couple of years ago (?) with Brian Willson, released by NotTwo. My limited personal experience with him: fine player, kind man.
  14. Börje Fredriksson (1937-1968)

    At this point I have the reissue of Intervall (great) and the Dragon LP (good), still not the Odeon LP (it pops up for sale in Sweden sometimes, but usually with a lot of cover wear). Wouldn't mind hearing those additional '63 tracks. I enjoy his playing quite a lot.
