Walt Dickerson, Jazz Impressions of Laurence of Arabia (Dauntless)

:tup

A very excellent $4 find.

Gene Ammons, My Way (Prestige/Fantasy). Really like A House is Not a Home, a duo piece with Roland Hanna on electric piano.

Neu! - s/t - (Brain/Metronome, GER orig)

A classic!  I have minty originals of all 3...the first is the best though.

I spun some German prog today myself:

Gila "s/t" (second battle)

Ibliss "supernova" (speigelie)

Probably SPIEGELEI ?

Still need that Wounded Knee Gila LP. Someday...

The only records I have on the Spiegelei label are jazz albums - Freedom releases and so forth.

Oops.  Spelling obviously not my strong point; especially with German words it seems ;)

I have a later 70s pressing of the second Gila album; it's a really nice album with a strong Popol Vuh touch.

Randy - s/t - (C Life Records)

deep, Nick Cave-like crooning over home recordings of piano, flutes and percussion lent a very austere, lo-fi quality. Earnest and trippy 'outsider' recordings and rather hard to find.

That Marian McPartland record is FANTASTIC, imho.  And not at all what one might expect from her; it's much more hard-charging and aggressive. In fact, on that particular record, McPartland's playing reminds me a bit of Joanne Brackeen's style in the 1970s. 

Concord has reissued most of McPartland's Halcyon LP on CD, but I don't think they've ever gotten 'round to Interplay. And that's a shame -- because I think it's one of MM's very best records.

The Ex------30------( ex records)

 

double let album of the Dutch outfits own recordings from  1979-2009. I don't usualy go for compliations but thought this a reasonable way to acquaint myself with their oeuvre. Picked it up at their recent concert here in Edinburgh. I'm really impressed. I can see why they've lasted this  length of time but not why I've only just heard of them !

Yes, I think there where at least 10 recordstores within a 15 minute walking distance from our appartment. And if I had more time/money I could have bought a lot more :D

mjazzg-> I think the Shofar is fantastic! A very nice mixture of Klezmer/folk songs and freejazz, which (to me at least) feels very authentic, organic and tasteful. I think sometimes these mixtures of styles can feel a bit gimmicky and/or plastic, but this is not the case here. I think Trzaska  handles  the old Jewish music/tradition with respect, but at the same time transfers it to the "here and now" with his own (and those of the other players of course) artistic vision.

Thank you. I'll add to the list

Marian McPartland - Interplay

Concord has reissued most of McPartland's Halcyon LP on CD, but I don't think they've ever gotten 'round to Interplay. And that's a shame -- because I think it's one of MM's very best records.

I am familiar with multiple Piano Jazz programs upped on Dime, but it's the first record that I have from her and it's warmly recommended.

My before-the-week-end treats:

Jenkins/Jordan/Timmons

Max Roach - members, don't git weary

Zoot Sims - I wish I were twins

Cannonball Adderley - 74 Miles Away

 

Comment from a rookie: I have a record, pressed by BBC: Wooden Joe's New Orleans Band at Artisan Hall + Bunk plays the Blue at San Jacinto Hall. It's a 12" (30.5 cm, not 30 cm) and my turntable won't spin. I guess my Denon is not adapted to this type of record!
