LOL!!!  :g

Damn straight to that too! 

 

I started my label (at the request of Roscoe Mitchell and Lester Bowie) with $1500 in stock my grandfather left me. Everything else grew from that.

Then we owe both you and your grandfather a debt of gratitude.

Martial Solal - Bluesine (Soul Note, 1983)
solo piano

Such spontaneous and eloquent thinking aloud on the piano.  With Solal, even a warhorse like "Round Midnight" is fresh as morning dew.

That is such a great record. Nearly every tune has a memorable and original theme, leaving you whistling them for days. Also such a great live sound to it. I have two copies in case I wear one out.

Mike Nock - Ondas (ECM, 1982)

 

One of my favourite ECM piano trio albums.  Tends to fly under the radar I think

I was reading about Ondas when I gave that LP a spin.  Turns out that it's one of Manfred Eicher's favorites as well.  In an interview, he said that he listens to Nock's record regularly to this day. 

When I read that, I was sort of surprised that Nock never made another record for ECM.  I wonder why.

Listening to a couple George Cables LPs from the 80s:

All of these Louis Hayes Muse sessions are so freakin' good. This is another great one but probably my least favorite. The Real Thing and Ichi Ban are even better. But this one is very good too. And a good oppurtunity to hear Charles Davis in a prominent role (on baritone sax!)

I didn't know that. Did Nock stay in Europe or go home I wonder.

I don't know.  I think Nock was based in the U.S. for a long while.

But regardless of his home base, it seems like Eicher could've recorded Nock again if he'd wanted to.  ... But who knows!?!? Not me!  ;)

I agree 100%, Pim.  Hayes made some great records in the 70s!  :tup

Nor me but my impression, and it's only an impression as I haven't looked anything up, is that ECM didn't make many recordings outside their favoured studios in those days (still only a small handful) so if he was back in NZ or Australia maybe Manfred couldn't find a studio he liked or couldn't be bothered to look

The recent Pure Pleasure reissue that sounds very good! Great record by Bonner (my favorite). Probably his most creative outing with a great band and even some strings. But it's mostly his fluent and gentle piano playing that really does it. Great music, ugly artwork....

A real find from the Hiseman archive and another excellent release from this label.

Now spinning:

Gary Thomas & Seventh Quadrant - By Any Means Necessary (JMT, 1989)

This music is as fierce as you'd expect, given the title.  Bassist Anthony Cox and drummer Dennis Chambers build a driving, shifting rhythmic foundation.  With the odd meters and synths & guitars riding on top, at times this reminds me of an 80s update on (some aspects of) prog-rock. (!!!)  But its still got the open-endedness and groove of jazz.

I dig it.
