Reminds me that I saw Dulfer with his band play live at the Zermatt ski resort - an unlikely but interesting booking !

Gunter Hampel / Galaxie Dream Band - All is Real (Birth)

Sam Musiker - Jewish Wedding Dances (Tikva). Musiker (what a great name for a klezmer) was a big-band veteran (Gene Krupa, for one) who became the son-in-law of his clarinet idol, the great Russian-born klezmer clarinetist Dave Tarras.

Good find. Not one that I can recall ever seeing in that version.

My personal highlight in that transaction was answering the seller's question about who McKusick was entirely in Dutch... next up is another of today's acquisitions, a Dutch organ record from the 80s with Herbert Noord playing organ and Paul Weeden on guitar...

It's quite free, so depending on your tolerance for intense stuff of that ilk, it may have been either a wise or unwise move.

Herbert Noord is really good, too, and I've much enjoyed the few records I have him on.

guess it'll come home with me the next time I see it at that price nevertheless... what I can say though is that the Beaver Harris album with steel drums and Andrew White is my type of free jazz album ;) ... the tenor playing by White is simply world class and the steel drums add exactly the amount of color I tend to miss in tenor/bass/drums bands

Russell Garcia - I lead a charmed life

in contrast, this album here could not quite live up to the promise of Mike Wofford on Fender Rhodes and Teddy Edwards on Tenor.... I do like how the cover photograph suggests that Garcia is playing saxophone on the album... but then you look once more and realize it's really just a necklace

Kid Thomas Valentine - Kid Thomas and his Algiers Stompers (GHB). Kid Thomas's raw trumpet style is an acquired taste, and as a young man I never really liked it until I started listening to Lester Bowie, in whose playing I found the same kinds of shakes and distorted sounds. Valentine always preferred a saxophone rather than a clarinet in the front line, and his longtime partner Emanuel Paul is at his idiosyncratic best here on tenor. Thomas picked the tunes, and they represent the kind of repertoire he played for dancers - pop songs and ballads as well as New Orleans jazz standards. I'm really enjoying this 1965 record tonight - it represents Valentine's ideas, rather than a producer's.

That's a great record. So good that I bought it twice without realising! The only time I have done that, that I've spotted anyway
