The Nessa Juggernaut rolls on

It must have been tempting to add additional tracks to this release. It just sounds so good. Kampen on No Business is good but this is better. The CD era has made us greedy for length, never mind that , feel the width here.

There is more music but we decided this was the perfect program.

Maybe vol. 2 someday.

Just bein' greedy.

So, please forgive me if this has been previously been asked and answered; Any chance "People In Sorrow" might get a reissue?

Wait and see. I am curious too.

I want to remind folks they don't need to be Face Book members to access the Nessa Records page, and it has a bunch of "historic" photos mostly made by my wife Ann.

Barring unforeseen circumstances, August 2015 will see the release of nessa ncd-37.

Around the first of this year I learned Roscoe Mitchell would be playing a concert in celebration of our good friend Fred Anderson. Sensing this might be something special and using my close relationship with Roscoe, I asked him if I could have the event recorded (on my dime). He agreed and we have decided to issue the concert on cd.
