I have an original of that Frank Wright - excellent album. I recall it being a pretty loud pressing. The new Calumet reissue is a bootleg; Calumet was a subsidiary of Musidisc France, which also owned the America label. Their catalog was pretty small, with a handful of blues titles and a library funk title spotlighting the music of Mal Waldron (although Mal doesn't play on it).

You mean Waldron's unreleased "Candy Girl" album with members of the Lafayette Afro Rock Band ? I didn't know Mal didn't play on it. Still would love to find a copy (there are promo's).

I always thought Calumet was a private label manufactured and distributed by Musidisc.

Now listening to a recent $.99 treasure from Record Theater in Buffalo. I seems to be unplayed.

I used to think Calumet was a private label too, but it's a Pierre Berjot/Jaubert (take your pick) imprint. All of those labels - Carson, America, etc. - shared artists and releases and were manufactured and distributed by Musidisc. As near as I can tell, he was the dude running the show and didn't seem to be paying anybody either.

At that time, the Calumet label was distributed by Discodis, not by Jaubert's Musidisc (see the back cover of "Church Number Nine").

On the other hand, music from the same session (a track also called "Church number nine") was released on Noah Howard's "Space Dimension", which was released some time earlier on the America label (part of Musidisc) and produced by Jaubert.

It's always a bit complex in France...

 

Yeah, that's the Waldron I'm referring to.

I've got a couple of America LPs that have Discodis logos too. Weird. It's all a mess indeed.

Agreed, that track was also included on the Japanese Odeon LP "Church Number Nine" and I'm pretty sure it was all from the same recording session.

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.
