This is a new one for me. Trying to get to the 2nd CD, the previously unissued stuff, but the first one keeps pulling me back in and around.

Those Vogue 2LP sets were the business !  I’ve still got loads of them. Not forgetting also the Clifford Brown ‘Complete Paris Collection’ on 3LPs which they did. £3.99 back in the day !

I had the LP in my hands earlier today and put it back in the rack. Mistake I suspect?

There's always time. 

I'm really enjoying it. A great example of underappreciated and unrecognised 70s bop.

Unfortunately ill-timed as I've entered self-isolation. It'll be snapped up by the time I'm able to make a trip there again. Not the end of the world really.

It's a great cover

Sheila Jordan "Comes Love: Lost Session 1960"

An interesting release--better singing than on a number of albums of the time and the sound is decent.

Vijay Iyer - Panoptic Modes (Red Giant, 2001)

R-3976283-1351129289-2891.jpeg.jpg

Listening to this early Iyer I am struck by how much more enjoyable his playing used to be. Whilst I am almost always impressed by Iyer's records, I am not sure that I have found them "enjoyable" for a while. They seem to be getting weightier with each year.

I think I agree with that. I've not enjoyed rather than admired an Iyer release since before 'Break Stuff' except of course the duo with Wadada. (I'm not one to countenance the 'curse of Manfred Eicher' but it's making me wonder)  Maybe I should break out the Fieldwork albums for a dusting down.  They were great, maybe the still are

I wonder. Perhaps a mix of Eicher's clammy touch with the effect of age and becoming an older statesman - something that normally doesn't affect jazz as much as other genres, but does seem to have gotten to Iyer.

I don't know these two. Would you start here or elsewhere?

Yes, a good place to start with them.  It gives a nice flavour of them individually.  Musson is a recent discovery for me, she plays with Pat Thomas and released a very good solo recording Dreamsing not so long ago.  Brice can be heard to good effect on his quintet albums as a writer as well as player. His duos with Tom Challenger are worth hearing too.

I think Musson, Brice and Challenger are all worth following.  A youngish (from where I look at least) generation nicely established.

Thanks. I notice that Musson has also played with Alexander Hawkins. I will follow up

Prompted by Kenny Wheeler discussion on another thread:

The Maritime Jazz Orchestra featuring Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor & Norma Winstone - Now And Now Again (Justin Time, 2002)

Norma Winstone's voice.  What a beautiful and expressive instrument!  She kills me -- especially when she's paired with such terrific composers as Kenny Wheeler or Michael Garrick.
