My strong guess is that the two titles of "The Search" are unissued tracks related to a Freedom LP release "A little bit of Miles" in 1974.

These two long titles where reissued as bonus tracks on CD "Blues for Lady Day" in 1993. I listened now to all four tracks and I believe they are from the same concert, recorded in Leiden, Holland Feb. 9th 1972 with Henk Haverhoek on bass and Pierre Courbois on drums. Maybe I'm wrong, but time and label would fit.

Greetings from Vienna

Thanks!! WIll buy me this download now. But not from 1201. 1201 does offer mp3 only. The sound of those mp3 is OK but the lossless version available at Qobuz do sound better. Bought me the mp3 of Dewey Redman's 'Look for another black star' and Jym Young's 'Strings, Keys & Thumbs' when they were available from 1201 more than 8 years ago. And a few days ago I discovered the lossless offer and immediately had to get 'em. All in all I'm glad that the music is available at all. Sadly they do not include even the most basic informations which is rather annoying.

The 1201 Music website shows a lot of interesting DL releases with sketchy (or no) discographical information:

https://1201music.com/black-lion-jazz-greats-24-bit-remastered/

The Dudu Pukwana "Black Horse" download (no previous CD or LP issue) has been released in Japan only as disc 2 from the 2021 double CD of "Diamond Express" (Freedom Paper Sleeve Series)

https://1201music.com/js_albums/dudu-pukwana-black-horse/

https://www.discogs.com/release/19729930-Dudu-Pukwana-Diamond-Express

Pity they didn't do the same with the Dewey Redman "Look For The Other Black Star" download ie add it to the "Look For The Black Star" Freedom Paper Sleeve Series

Interesting, I will give the extra Pukwana music a listen. I admit I'm not a huge fan of Diamond Express however.

News to me; please pardon any duplication.

Searching In Grenoble: The 1978 Solo Piano Concert is a previously unissued recording of jazz icon Mal Waldron's mesmerizing performance at the "Five Days of Jazz" series in Grenoble, France on March 23, 1978.

Waldron was Billie Holiday’s final accompanist, played on classic sessions with John Coltrane, Charles Mingus and Jackie McLean among others, and recorded dozens of solo albums as a leader before his passing in 2002.

Originally produced by the legendary André Francís and transferred from the original Radio France tapes, this is the first official release of this music in cooperation with the Mal Waldron Estate and Ina (The Institut national de l'audiovisuel). The beautifully designed, deluxe 2-CD set includes photos by K. Abe, Brian McMillen and Raymond Ross; an extensive 24-page booklet with a heartfelt statement by Mal's daughter Mala Waldron, plus essays by producer/"Jazz Detective" Zev Feldman, journalist Adam Shatz and Ina's Pascal Rozat; and interviews with modern jazz piano luminaries Ran Blake and Matthew Shipp. Searching In Grenoble features classic Waldron originals such as "Soul Eyes" and "All Alone," and jazz standards "You Don't Know What Love Is," "It Could Happen to You" and "I Thought About You.”

The 2CD set will be available worldwide September 23rd on Tompkins Square (TSQ5906), and was produced for release by Zev Feldman and Josh Rosenthal.

Oh my…. Thanks so much for noticing! Mal did not record a lot those last years of the ‘70’s. Also: time to write a new review :)

this might turn out to be a good year for Mal Waldron fans. End of this year or beginning of 2023 Sam records will release an unissued trio session by Mal from 1970. Now that was one hell of a strong period for Mal!

Sam Records curate some really fine releases. Very much looking forward to that

as much as I think Cacophonic is a cool label, I wouldn't mind some archival Tusques with Sam Records pressing quality.

No idea… I assume it’s a French recording so there’s a chance of Patrice Caratini on bass. Excellent player he is. Guy Hayat or Kenny Clarke on drums? Or perhaps he was gigging with Isla Eckinger and Fred Braceful? He was playing with so many musicians those days.

We’ll see. I’m happy anyway ;)
