  1. Prayers for Mr. Jarrett rough rough stuff happening with my folks who are nearing 90 - 75 is much too young
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Only twice for me. Second time with Ulrich. first time 1/7/1999 the day Fred Hopkins died. Ari Brown played second time maybe a year later - Fred Anderson played I havn’t been to Chicago since fwiw that recording is incredible - I just received my copy a couple of weeks ago
  3. Brotzmann Octet / Tentet box back out

    Tempted to get the 4 Territory Band CDs I don’t have. I do have 2 of them but missing volumes 1-4. I never heard the first one or Map Theory
  4. Toshinori Kondo (1948-2020)

    Jason - remember the days we were all discovering this stuff and sharing with each other on line? With Bruce K Woods, Gordon, Walter & Sisco? When was the Empty Bottle show?
  5. Toshinori Kondo (1948-2020)

    Was just listening to him the other day on a recently released show with Fred Anderson, Tatsu Aoki & Hamid Drake from December 1994. His playing on this recordings is off the hook incredible. To be at The Velvet Lounge for that show?!?! Wow - I had no idea he played with Fred. I commented that there was no one like him and what he did with Die Like a Dog quartet with Peter, William & Hamid would be legendary in a sane musical world one of my biggest musical regrets was a missed opportunity to see the full quartet back in the late 90’s. genius improvisor - what he did with the pedals and electronics with his trumpet was untouchable RIP, Sir of course I dedicate that sign off to Ulrich
  6. Eddie Van Halen dead at 65 from metastatic throat cancer

    I find the music of my youth sounding terrific but I get bored pretty quickly my ears and mind/heart is so tuned into modern improvised music of all sorts - that most everything else except maybe things like The Dead, Can, Pavement, Sonic Youth and some obscure alternate rock things along with great historical jazz / the old favorites fade quickly. I LOVE The Replacements & Husker Du as two examples but by half a 35 minute album I’m moving on!!

    There was a note in the package asking if I was interested in other Okkadisk titles that they had more.

    Me too Chuck. I ordered from Orbits a few minutes before you posted your offer. I was very surprised that what I received was an original issue. It looks just like the set I used to have so I sure think it’s legit. My guess is the first one I bought might have been from Cadence

    Just got my copy from Orbit original issue #2637 seeing this for the first time since it somehow disappeared brings back many good memories of those days
  10. Roscoe Mitchell recommendations

    I’m tempted but I have a cart with like 8 Astral Spirits CD’s to hit the button on for me it’s still CD’s or streaming on Tidal
  11. Mal Waldron

    Mal, Verve, Black & Blue is one of my favorites as well
  12. Brotzmann Octet / Tentet box back out

    Pre-ordered as my original beautiful box was lost years ago I have all the other recordings and although they are all terrific in varying ways, the original stuff is in some ways the strongest. I do think the later all improvised material is overall the most powerful - and the recordings of the 2009, 2011 & 2013 tours are extraordinary - especially the 3 Nights in Oslo from 2009 & Walk, Love & Sleep from 2011. And of course I remind anyone reading that the 2 shows I saw at Tonic in NYC remain the greatest live musical experiences of my life - especially the 2002 sets. Mind blowing. From ten feet away. People screaming BROTZMANN!!!
  13. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Love it
  14. Vinny Golia

    One day I’ll investigate his large ensemble stuff I'm a big listener to all sorts of free/avant large ensemble music - along with small group freely improvised music of the past 10-15 years it’s my sweetest of all sweet spots
