And it’s not all about reissues. I’m loving this one from Sabu Toyozumi and Mats Gustafsson

Are you sure? In my last contact with NoBuisness they said it would be 6 releases.

The info about 8 releases I got from Danas before the first CD in the series was released. Maybe the schedule has changed or my memory is false. I have regular contact with Danas businesswise since at least 10 or 11 years . And since 2015 we've producing reissues together on No Business. However - you could be right. We haven't communicated about the Sam Rivers' CDs except that I believe they contain simply great music.

Edit -

now I found another source for the eight CDs. See a review at No Business website by Bill Shoemaker and here , similar infos on Squidcos's website, etc...

Then I was probably wrongly informed. I hope so for I could use another 4 of these discs. I am really amazed by the constant quality of these series.

Just when I was about to ask hear if anybody knew when the series would be continued I discovered volume 5 on SoundOhm:

Volume 5

I don't really know the other guys from the band. Anyone else does?

Jerry Byrd is mostly known from organ bands I guess (Gene Ludwig, Don Patterson)... there is also already an existing album (Crosscurrent) with that lineup on Futura/Marge which can be found on spotify

Volume 5 is another succes but I have to say that, just like 4, the sound is way worse than the first three releases. Not necessarily the most important thing but it does temper my enthusiasm a bit.

I was initially very disappointed with Vol 4 having got used to the sonic excellence of Vols 1-3. Having listened to Vol 4 repeatedly I can easily get past the deficiencies of the recording to enjoy the music which is very fine indeed. Vol 5 remains unopened but now I know not to have high expectations of the sound quality.

Steve Ellington also played and recorded a good bit with Hal Galper in the 1990s.
