Still have that one and enjoy giving it the occasional spin. Bought in Liverpool as a cut out back in the late 1970s. The story I heard is that shipments of those were loaded into freighters in NYC as ballast for offloading up there. :D

My copy is a German pressing. It is not a stereo recording, so "Stereo" was crossed out!

'Bird Curtis Quintet' (Jazzaggression, mono). Finnish reissue of a very rare UK album from 1968, reputedly in better sound. The vinyl comes with a CD and download (the vinyl has the definite edge in sound quality). Along with the Amancio d'Silva, my reissue of the year so far !

Such a hearty recommendation piques my interest and worries my wallet. Who are the Bird Curtis Quintet? Listening to some online samples I like what I hear

The Bird Curtis Quintet were the regular band at the Green Man in Blackheath, S.London  I saw them several times there in the late 60 or thereabouts. I can't recall them making a very big impression on me back then.

The Bird Curtis Quintet LP is certainly no lost masterpiece but is a fine, very enjoyable session - especially so as these guys were semi-pro I believe. Ian Bird on tenor and alto, in particular, plays very nicely and should be better known. A cohesive and well put together session which any fan of, say, Rendell-Carr is sure to enjoy. The reissue package is also exemplary - considering the reasonable price.

End of sales pitch. :)

I hope so; at the moment I am only "spinning" can't monitor inputs to the PC while recording.

Thanks Sidewinder. It's on the "to buy" list now which given the length of the list could mean anytime between now and Kingdom Come

My copy arrived today and I'd agree 100% , solid session and very enjoyable but it's no Rosetta stone for sure. Well worth it.

Binker & Moses---------Journey to the moutain of forever--------(Gearbox) LP 2

 

 these guys are new to me (although they've release previously on gearbox ) No less than Evan Parker guests on the second LP.  Good meeting of minds. Nothing earth shattering but solid modern jazz with strong rhythmic sensibilities.

Not to forget either that there are two new unissued Neil Ardley releases coming up on CD (sorry, wrong thread :D).

Must check out the 'Binker & Moses'.

one of the best that Manfred's never seen fit to reissue on CD (also goes to show, no hard feelings on the rugby front :))
