Julius Hemphill, Georgia Blue (Minor Music). Live recording featuring Alex and Nels Cline, Steubig and Jumma Santos. I think this was Nels' first recording. Features updated versions of "The Hard Blues" and "Dogon A.D." The cover screams 1980s.

the allmusic reviewer had following choice words for the cover (and the album i guess)

"If things weren't dismal enough, the album cover, looking as though drawn by a fashion-school dropout, is possibly one of the worst ever".

 

I always liked the album a lot and am listening to it right now

Andre Jaume - Saxanimalier [Hat Hut]

Heinz Becker, Louis Sclavis, John Lindberg - Transistion [FMP]

two recent arrivals getting their first airing. The Jaume has a very impressive bass clarinet piece and 'Transition' owes something to Giuffre to these ears

Alexander Von Schlippenbach, Evan Parker, Paul Lovens - Detto Fra Di Noi, Live in Pisa 1981 [Po Torch]

the third new arrival's debut play.

This is possibly my favourite 'band' in Jazz and improvised music. Pleased to finally afford a copy of this which doesn't disappoint

That Detto Fra Do Noi is a great pick-up. I got lucky in acquiring my copy.

Contemporary Hungarian Music, Zoltan Jeney and Laszlo Sary (Hungaraton). Early 1970s works from two Hungarian composers--very nice and adventurous.

Excellent choice. Many treasures to be found on the Hungaraton label in the 1970s and 1980s, especially by composers of the Budapest New Music Studio (Jeney and Sary were both founding members).

I've yet to find a dud on that label. Zsolt Durko is another favourite. Do you have any other recommendations? Hungaraton also did that amazing edition of Bartok's works.

Sorry for replying late and I don't have my records here, but I would recommend really almost anything by the New Music Studio composers (I'm particularly fond of Zoltan Jeney). Hungaroton also released a string of excellent electronic/electroacoustic records by Hungarian composers. And there's Kurtág, of course...

(I'm not an expert on "straight" classical music, but given the high quality of so much contemporary/avant-garde releases on the label, I would imagine their standards to be pretty high there too. The Bartok edition you mentioned is a case in point.)

now listening to Endre Szekely on Hungaroton (this time I spelled it correctly). More great stuff, especially a trio for percussion, piano and cello. Thanks for the Kurtag recommendation--that's one composer I really need to check out.

Thanks for posting the cover. When I'm playing the record I always display the back cover because the front is so gaudily awful. The music, however, is wonderful. That's a great rendition of "The Hard Blues" and Hemphill's playing on the title cut makes the David Sanborn connection even less surprising.

The whole project is very well done. The song "Au bois de mon cœur" is wonderful!

Karlheinz Stockhausen, Telemusik/Mixtur (DG). One side of electronics and tape collage and one side of orchestra tripped out through ring modulators. This and Gesang der Jünglinge/Kontakte are the ones I spin most from Stockhausen,

Isn't that one of the LPs that Paul Buckmaster spun for Miles before the 'On The Corner' sessions?

Buckmaster mentioned that "Mixtur" and "Gruppen" were on heavy rotation at Miles' house prior to On the Corner.
