  1. What music did you buy today?

    Ordering both the DKV Trio plus Joe McPhee 6 CD set & the Barry Guy Blue Shroud Band 5 CD set with a promise from me to my wife that they don’t get opened until my birthday in April time to remind those here who have been unmoved about previous reminders about these Barry Guy Small Formation box sets that these releases are some of the finest played/improvised live music of the past few decades and are all presented in sound quality that is second to none. The first box is now hard to find and quite expensive (Mad Dogs with the New Orchestra members) but Mad Dogs on the Loose with almost the same personell (including Evan Parker, Mats Gustafsson, etc.) is almost as great and is available for a fair cost while Tensegrity is small formations improvisation from the Blue Shroud Band and it is arguably a more exciting collectionby mostly lesser known players (save for Guy, Peter Evans & Agusti Fernandez) is even less expensive.

    Good to hear - please send him my regards many good memories from here and beyond:)
  3. British Jazz Festivals 2016

    Any word on where our friend Bev is??
  4. Big Ears Festival

    Glad that both Schlippenbach Trio & Fire! will be in NYC on 3/25 & 3/28 respectively so I can join in seeing at least 2 of the great bands you all will be seeing! really a dream for me to be able to see these two trios a few days apart with 2 of my saxophone heroes - Evan Parker & Mats Gustafsson. Plus I know I’ll be seeing Peter Brotzmann in June so this is going to be a great late Spring/early Summer for me!!
  5. Fire! US Tour dates

    Yes - looks like Schlippenbach Trio on 3/25 and THIS on 3/28!!!
  6. What music did you buy today?

    Some of these are amazing topped by the Red Trio, the Gustafsson & the Leandre Quartet. The Red Trio + that vibes player is beyond amazing. Freely improvised jazz at it’s finest in a new language to these ears.
  7. good evening.  would you be willing to share the not two source that you were referring to that charged only around $7.00 for multiple cd not two shipments?

     

    thanks

  8. Not Two Records New Releases

  9. Not Two Records New Releases

    I’m waiting to order these (being as patient as I can - plus some of the below recent arrivals (and other recent arrivals from No Business) are still in my “to be played list” - including the Joelle Leandre box) as the shipping isn’t awful when buying directly from Not Two but recently a seller closely associated with them has been offering one shipping cost for multiple CD’s from Not Two through the famous bid re-seller. On one of my orders at the end of last year, I ordered 7 CD’s (including the 8 CD Joelle Leandre box) and I paid a total of $7.44 shipping for the whole package!! Once the same seller offers these 2 new sets, I’ll add an older release or two and get the whole thing delivered for a similar very low cost. I’m sure it’s not the same for orders/shipments to the U.K. The other new release from Not Two looks totally out of the box / a quartet including Otomo Yoshihide and three other musicians I’m unfamiliar with - I’ll certainly add this to my order when & if it appears plus these 2 recent releases: Akira Sakata/Nicolas Fields: First Thirst - Live at Cave 12 Agusti Fernandez with Artur Majewski & Rafal Mazur: Spontaneous Soundscapes
  10. Not Two Records New Releases

    We already knew about the DKV + Joe McPhee 6 CD box as it was offered on pre-order elsewhere but the new Barry Guy 5 CD set of The Blue Shroud Band in Small Formations is the most exciting release of the new year - called “Intensegrity” (previous 4 CD box was called “Tensegrity” from 2014, I think. The new box is also described as “Odes & Meditations for Cecil Taylor”. the DKV box is recorded live from November 2017 at concerts in France, Poland & Czech Replublic and then in late December 2017 at a show @ Sugar Maple in Milwaukee and then 2 homecoming shows @ Elastic Arts in Chicago. I’m so fired up about this one as I’ve been waiting to hear the trio with a foil for Vandermark and I think McPhee is playing at as creative a level as anyone on the planet these days. Looks like we have a few different new members of the Barry Guy band including Percy Pursglove (no Peter Evans this time) & Jurg Wickihalder. Another exciting aspect is that we get the full band on disc 5 with what is called the “Ode & Meditations to Cecil Taylor”. This could be a composed Guy piece. Discs 1 through 4 recorded live @ Alchemia in Kraków, Poland (11/27-29, 2016) and Disc 5 recorded 11/30/2016 @ Radio Kraków. Wow Having received and listened to most of their recent releases (I choose the ones that have the appeal to me along with ones that I take chances with) Not Two Records continues to release for my ears the most exciting, best sounding catalogue of new recordings of any label operating today.
  11. What live music are you going to see tonight?

    Any highlights?
  12. Joseph Jarman - RIP

    Very very sad news Sorry for what must be a very difficult personal loss, Chuck
  13. Me too. I do love some Lauren Newton and when Joelle Leandre starts singing with her bass playing I’m in heaven. Looking forward to their duo performance which is included in the 8 CD box set “A Woman’s Work” from Lady Joelle. Did Ms. Leandre again miss out on all the awards & polls? She’s still ahead of the curve at 67 years old - maybe one day she will be noted as a “new artist deserving wider recognition”!!!!
  14. Missing are ALL the great recordings with Joe McPhee did anyone anywhere hear “Sweet Oranges” or “Journey to Parazzar”?
  15. New releases on No Business

    Larry Ochs, Mark Dresser & Vladimir Tarasov Tarasov is, of course, one of the three original members of the Ganelin Trio
