I've bought two of their Company reissues. Nicely done but unconvinced that cutting them at 45rpm enhances the experience of this music very much, especially when they were sidelong pieces at 33rpm.

I sent them an email with this observation and they got very upset...

I have an original of that Music Improv Co. title. Excellent stuff, as is the ECM

Why were they upset?

Until now I've been very impressed by their Incus series.

Just by me questioning the decision to cut at 45rpm and the resultant abrupt non-fades. Evidently one of those is on the original which I don't know so I was happy to stand corrected on that one.

I purchased this in the 70´s, Charles Brackeen was completely unknown to me besides the fact that he once was Joanne Brackeen´s husband. I bought it for Don Cherry , Haden, Blackwell, since I was very much into the Ornette Coleman-Don Cherry thing which was new and exiting for me. 

I was , and still am astonished how much it is in the spirit of Ornette Coleman. Charles Brackeen even phrases like Ornette, it sounds almost like "Ornette on Tenor". 

Anyway, a beautiful, relativly obscure thing, worth listening to.

Larry Coryell - Toku Do (Muse, 1988)

Very enjoyable -- in no small part because of this primo rhythm section: Stanley Cowell. Oh yeah. Beaver Harris. Yessir. And Buster Williams!!!

Plus the album is named after Buster's composition "Toku Do." I'm always in favor of props for Buster. 

Larry sounds pretty good too. ;)

I have unconditional love for Earl Coleman, but I would hesitate to recommend this record to somebody who didn't. His pitch is at times really wobbly, and the record is actually a program of Coleman vocal tracks alternating with Ted Dunbar solo tracks. That programming decision is nowhere explained in the notes (and isn't even hinted at on the cover) and one is left wondering if Coleman was in bad voice that day and Don Schlitten called the session (NP: Don Schlitten - Callin' the Session!!!) and called on Dunbar to make it a record. I'd think f it had been an actual concept that it would have been pimped as such.

But still - I have unconditional love for Earl Coleman. No matter where the notes land, the words always come out in the right place and in the right way.

I'm enjoying this Sammy Nestico-arranged Basie record from 1971. It was released on Daybreak Records; not to be confused with the Dutch Daybreak label that released Jimmy Knepper and Ben Webster LPs, among others. No, this is the short-lived American Daybreak label based in Hollywood that also released music by Bing Crosby and Laurindo Almeida. Incidentally, the vinyl is REALLY thin, and it turns out that (the American) Daybreak was (per the small print on the cover) "manufactured and distributed by RCA Records." Makes me wonder if it's a dreaded Dyna-Flex wafer-thin platter! ... Fortunately, recorded sound quality is plenty listenable, neither terrible nor great.

I think I remember some 1977 Earl Coleman was played on our then very popular austrian Saturday night Radio Show "Jazz Shop", moderated by Herwig Wurzer (I call him the Austrian Symphony Sid), and he also commented Earl Coleman´s Deep voice and announced the record this way "Right now something for the ladies to listen to….."

Sorry to say I don´t have the late 1977 Earl Coleman stuff, but I also love his stuff from the 40´s very much, especially the sides with Fats Navarro and Don Lanphere…….

But I don´t know absolute Nothing about his life.  

On this cover photo he looks quite dapper, almost like Horace Silver…..

New Direction For The Arts - Free Form Suite [Three Blind Mice]

 the arc through this album is astonishing, stylistically starting somewhere like Jim Hall/Jimmy Giuffre and ending up beyond Sonny Sharrock. Terrific musicianship.
