  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Must have been the first gig he did with the CBBB. You would never guess from the recording, amazing player.

    The Rearward/Schema reissue of this one is definitive. Fantastic sound job. Incidentally, they flew Wolfgang Hirschmann out to record it and provided the great Adrian Kerridge of Lansdowne fame as his assistant ! Talk about A-Team..
  3. Hugely impressed with June Tyson when I saw the Arkestra in Toronto, 1989 and (Boston) early 1990 - total commitment - but the thing that amazed me was the length and energy of the performance in Toronto. They started at 8pm and didn't finish until well after midnight. If my memory is correct there were 2 Arkestra 'greatest hits' sets and in between them a Sun Ra Fletcher Henderson solo piano recital and a 'Salute to Disney' set plus breaks in between for selling LPs ! Not only that but I read afterrwards that quite a number of the musicians got left behind in Alabama and never made the flight up to Canada ! Some of the road crew ended up on the stage I believe.
  4. So sorry to hear this. She had plenty of friends on this board. RIP.

  6. These Cosmic Myth reissues sound pretty cool. No doubt tons of Evidence CDs will flood the market as their catalogue expands.
  7. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Jazztet 'Another Git Together' (Mercury)
  8. I am finding that carefully pushing in the teeth on those offending disk 2s and then equally carefully rotating the disk loose usually does the trick. Real pain in the neck though.

    Interestingly, my LP copy is on German Saba, who must have come to a similar deal to the one Transatlantic had around that time with Prestige. It has the same cover but the Saba label imprint.
