  1. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Seeds was the original pressing -- that was Mait Edey's label. My understanding is that as Seeds was in the process of folding, Jeanne took the tapes and issued it herself on Earthforms (this was also back in the 1970s). Now, a new "Earthforms" pressing has appeared but I cannot imagine it's connected to her heirs as they have been very protective (and rightly so) when it comes to her material being reissued posthumously.

  6. Hüseyin Ertunç (1947-2018)

    Turkish free music drummer and pianist (and also visual artist) Hüseyin Ertunç died yesterday at 71 after a lengthy battle with cancer. I was informed by his collaborator in KonstruKt, Umut Çağlar. Ertunç was a fixture in the early '70s Boston scene, playing with John Jamyll Jones' Worlds' Experience Orchestra, Cooper-Moore, Phill Musra, and Michael Cosmic, as well as sorties into New York to work with William Parker. He returned to his native Turkey in the mid-70s and then linked up again with Phill and Michael in Los Angeles in the late 1980s, where they had a short-lived group. Ertunç returned one last time to Turkey in the early/mid-90s, concentrating on visual art and performing/recording with KonstruKt, Okay Temiz, and visiting musicians like Parker, Peter Brötzmann, Marshall Allen, Evan Parker, and others. His 1974 LP Musikî, privately released on Intex Sound, was my introduction to his music as well as that of Musra and Cosmic, and the rest is for me a deep personal well. Though we never met and only communicated through Umut, Ertunç is someone I have long held in very high regard for his individuality and creativity. He will be missed.

  10. Mary Lou Williams

    a bit later on, the pianist/composer Jill McManus was in an all-woman band that I think was pretty well-regarded. This would've been in the mid 60s IIRC.

    Hüseyin Ertunç Trio -- Musikî -- (Intex, USA orig) great record w/ Michael Cosmic and Phill Musra. Bittersweet as I just got the news of Hüseyin's departure at 71.
