Don Cherry/ Steve Lacy/ Dave Holland/ Masahiko Togashi————Live at Yubin Chokin, Kaikan Hall , Tokyo, May 14 1986—————( Victory)

 

I’ve no idea about the provenance of this new record. Two tracks are previously released. Overall it has the vibe of Lacy guesting with Cherry’s Multikulti , have a similar vibe.

It's a bootleg, I'm afraid.

The original release was "Bura Bura", under Masahiko Togashi's name. The 1986 LP had different tracks, but the complete concert (including the 5 now-bootlegged tracks) was released as a 2CD-set.

Damn I hate it when that happens. I avoid boots for all the obvious reasons. 😢

Probably based on too high expectations a bit underwhelming ....

Yes, it's very annoying. I very nearly purchased that last month from a certain Leicester based supplier. I have 'Bura Bura' and was intrigued by the rest of the concert.

Steve Lacy - Outings [Ismez]

I'm a bit of a Lacy agnostic (I know, I know...) but this is superb. Great cover too.

Likewise but I thought after I’d bought! On the up side the sound is excellent but then it ought to be if it’s copied from a CD.

the only way to really listen to jazz is on vinyl. It just seems so RIGHT, know what I mean? Even the little staticky parts on the vinyl :) The vinyl sounds better, more ALIVE. I love that quality, as welll as the larger art work, the record label, and all that glorious vinyl.

It depends on the pickup system you use. I have Shure V15 IV and my vinyls sound really good.

who from my Generation wouldn´t remember those Prestige Two Record Sets, specially prized, which was very welcome for a teenie like I  was. 

We all knew those classic Things "Blue´n Boogie" "Groovin Hight" "Salt Peanuts". That´s from where I learned to Play that Music and I´m still grateful I had the possibility to get in touch with this Wonderful Music through those low prized doublealbums, this and the French laber "Musidisc" , another cheap source of Music. 

On the other Hand: Those Recordings of Course were not Prestige Studio Dates, it was for example the old "Guild" sessions. 

Dizzy never was a "Prestige" Artist like so many others (mostly hard boppers) were.

Still a cult record for me.

The VERY first modern jazz record I ever bought in the mid-70s at the age of 15 (maybe going on 16) about a year after I had started buying and "collecting" jazz records. I had read about Bird and Diz (notably in Berendt's "Jazz Book") and was rather curious but preferred to ease my way chronologically into this (for me) "new territory". Regardless of what everyone had written by then about this revolutionary (and revolting) upheaval in 40s jazz, my initial listening impressions were that all this was quite a logical extension and continuation of swing (at least of whatever I had been familiar with in early 40s-style swing at that time). Intense music (not just "Things to Come") but certainly not disturbing or unsettling and quite accessible. (Eventually I even picked up a spare copy of this twofer when a clean and cheap copy came up at a fleamarket.) So the path for further explorations was set (I think one of my next bebop acquisitions were the Dial recordings by Dexter Gordon reissued on Storyville).
And @Gheorge - never mind if Diz never was a Prestige artist (well, almost ... check out that final session of 1950 on side 4. It was actually first released on Prestige): Blind Lemon Jefferson was no Milestone artist either. ;) And yes - those twofers were a godsend at the time (and I still look out for them).

I’ve got loads of the Prestige/Milestone/Fantasy twofers and I still pick them up when I see ones I want. The pressings, especially UK and US, are usually very good.

The Gillespie is one that I have just recently discovered. It is sublime !

Agree, my introduction into jazz, with the very few italian pressing of Impulse! and a weekly, and cheap, serie of Jazz Giants (I Grandi del Jazz) sold in Newspapers kiosks.

Oh yes, italian LPs were very much on my buying list. I have a lot of those Lineatre Series, and the Kings of Jazz (for example: Here is Miles Davis at his rare of all rarest performances), they were cheap so I could afford them with my weekly pocket money, and great music !

He did one session (4 tunes) for Prestige in 1950. It is included in this
