  1. A very nice label based 5CD boxset. And interspersed with comments of what I assume is Mezzrow.
  2. Yes, I remember. Because I also got them. And they were not emails, but paper magazines.
  3. Hoodoo gurus - Magnum cum louder I was very much into this kind of music at the end of the 80s. What would turn out to be indie in the 90s. But it had long been in the making in the 80s.
  4. I like them very much. I discovered them in Thailand in 1989, where in Bangkok you could buy very cheap bootleg cassettes, (they were quite unknown in Europe) where I got their incredible Magnum cum Louder. I had this on vinyl, and now as mp3 but with a different cover both times. This one:
  5. Today I saw a write up of that album (Cabretta) in British magazine Mojo under the moniker Buried Treasure and called Lower East Side Stories and headed thus: "This month's four-leaf clover in rock's salvage yard: NYC street gang romance at the time of punk", although they hadn't much to do with punk, except the energy perhaps, and more with Phil Spector and the Girl groups. (listening to Mixed up shook up Girl right now) It was apparently reissued in 2018 and I remember having it on vinyl when I was 14. I have hurried to search it in Spotify and add it to my 70s music playlist.

    This is one of those Patrick Roques covers where he hit the nail. It's outstanding. Mobley playing with the reed while he's thinking of something else... But the picture is of course by Wolff.
  7. Your Favorite Jazz Records of the 1980s?

    Yeah, that one's great.
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    One I play far too seldom. It's very, very good.

    I also think both have something in common, specially since UR was a collective out of which several side projects spawned. Since their start in the late 80s and early 90s they have released tons of material. Specially in the form of EPs and maxis. So they have little albums, and when they do, they're mostly compilations of member tracks. I, for one, like most their soulful side, being able to recommend British label React's compilation True people, from the mid 90s, which features a lot of good Detroit techno. Then there's also an album or compilation called Galaxy 2 Galaxy that's very good and from the mid 2000s and with a good choice of jazzy techno. And finally I'd recommend an album from 2006 or so called Los Hermanos (The Brothers), which is also very soulful and features again tracks by (I think mostly latin) members. Don't know if they're still active today. Last time I saw something new from them was in the mid 2000s. And, as I said, I don't know much of their stuff. There are also two compilations out there, called Interstellar Fugitives and IF2. But they are quite hard and I don't like them so much.

    I've got that one and play it from time to time. They are part of UR aren't they? I like UR a lot.

    What a pleasure it is to hear Clifford Brown. Always.
  12. LF - I CDs from Brazil

    There's also a very good album by Joyce released in 1999 by the London label Far Out. It's called Hard Bossa. But what I like most of her is her debut Feminina from 1980.

    I really liked that series of compilations.
