Gimme some Pi (Recordings)

20 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Pi Recordings is holding a 30% Bandcamp sale for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, so I’d love recommendations.

 

FWIW I own the following already, all of which I’d recommend:

7 Steve Colemans (personal fave = Synovial Joints)

9 Henry Threadgills (personal faves = This Brings Us To volumes 1 & 2)

3 Muhal Richard Abrams

Rudresh Mahanthappa and Bunky Green, Apex (great one)

They're one of those labels that if you like or think you might like the artist, go ahead and dig into that Pi. Using those guidelines, I've not heard a bum release out of them yet.

I agree. Never been disappointed by a Pi 

Lehman octets, quartet or trio sit well with the Colemans

Fieldwork were a great band before individual careers took off

Sorey's are pretty intense listens

I own that Sam Rivers/Holland/Althschul reunion set, like it quite a bit.

Roscoe Mitchell Song for My Sister

the two Braxton/Wadada duet albums

the Iyer/Ladd In What Language

AEOC, Sirius Calling & the Meeting

the first Fieldwork Album

Leo Wadada Smith, Year of the Elephant

 

[the recommendation for the Rivers/Holland/Altschul reunion is right on, but I already have it and forgot to mention :) ]

I couldn't get the "Twitter" discount code to work. I have some things to get, but that 30% off at this time of year was a real incentivizer to get them now.

well crap, then.

Still, things to buy, Tyshawn Sorey in particular. Been following him through the kindness of friends, like it enough to do the right thing.

Nor I.  I tried to pick up the Sam Rivers and the first Threadgill release. Inputting "Twitter" into the discount code box did not work.

I wonder if everybody couldn't make it work, and if they will try it again to say sorry 'bout that...

I just emailed Seth Rosner about this.

I mean, I hope it was just a few people, in which case, they owe me nothing, if anything, I owe them. But otoh, they're too young to start getting flaky like Mosaic keeps trying to do, you know, now you see it, then you don't, hey, don't blame us, this is all OVERWHELMING and shit like that.

But yeah, I do need to give them some money, and 30% off means...30% off. right? The math does itself so I can do something else. Modern!

I just got this from Seth. 

First, I should have asked how your Thanksgiving was. First one in the new house, so hopefully it was a good one.

I am waiting for my membership to be approved so I can’t respond. Anyway I can ask you to respond on my behalf? I can create a special code for people who are commenting now for them to use since they didn’t realize the sale ended on Saturday night.

Ok, but I tried on both Saturday night. And not late, regular night time. But if he got a new code, let’s go!
