  2. Below are the content of these sets with my notes tracing their appearance on CD. It took me a minute to untangle all this, hoping it could be of help to anyone looking to complete their Impulse-era Coltrane collection down to the track, as I am! -------------------------------------- The Mastery Of John Coltrane / Vol. I Feelin' Good Feelin' Good 6:20 My Favorite Things 14:44 Living Space 10:20 Untitled 90320 10:44 Untitled 90314 14:40 Dusk-Dawn 10:45 Nature Boy 6:52 Joy 12:10 ["Living Space > "Dusk-Dawn" released on Living Space. "Joy" from Infinity, released here without string overdubs, as well as on First Meditations For Quartet. "My Favorite Things" was from Newport 1965, hence released on the New Thing At Newport CD and My Favorite Things: Coltrane At Newport. "Feelin' Good" and "Nature Boy" released on the Coltrane Quartet Plays CD] The Mastery Of John Coltrane / Vol. II To The Beat Of A Different Drum Impressions 15:52 I Want To Talk About You 8:17 My Favorite Things 17:31 After The Rain 4:07 Dear Old Stockholm 10:35 After The Crescent 13:34 One Down, One Up 15:25 Dear Lord 5:34 ["Impressions" > "My Favorite Things" released on Newport '63. "After The Rain" > "Dear Lord" released variously on Transition and Dear Old Stockholm] The Mastery Of John Coltrane / Vol. III "Jupiter Variation" Number One 11:56 Peace On Earth 7:08 Jupiter (Variation) 6:45 Leo 11:00 ["Jupiter Variation" and "Leo released on Interstellar Space CD editions. "Peace On Earth" from Infinity, released only here without string overdubs. "Number One" released on the Expression CD] The Mastery Of John Coltrane / Vol. IV "Trane's Modes" Impressions (Take One) 8:50 Miles' Mode 10:00 Chasin' Another Trane 15:34 Greensleeves (Take Two) 4:50 Impressions (Take Two) 10:55 Naima 7:39 Africa (First Version) 14:06 The Damned Don't Cry 7:38 ["Impressions > "Naima" released on The Complete Village Vanguard box set. "Africa" and "Damned" released on The Complete Africa/Brass] The conclusion I would draw, then, is that the original "Peace On Earth" is the only track from these albums that was never reissued elsewhere, aside from the Japanese CD of this compilation.
  3. Andrew Cyrille - The News

    Looking forward to this. I liked Lebroba a lot, but Declaration of Musical Independence is a masterpiece. He's making some very deep and special music these days.
  4. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    The Flow Trio + McPhee album on ESP is shaping up to be my favorite release of the year. Joe is playing at an extremely high level these days.

    Another roundup of recent & upcoming releases of note: -Two new William Parker trio albums from Aum Fidelity. One with Daniel Carter & Hamid, the other with Ava Mendoza & Gerald Cleaver -Matthew Shipp/Whit Dickey duo on Burning Ambulance. It took me time, but I came around to these frequent Shipp/Dickey/Perelman/Wooley musical chair releases. These are guys who undoubtedly can all play and, contrary to my initial apprehensions, are pushing themselves deeper all the time. The recent Ivo/Nate duo on BA is fantastic -Wandering The Sound Quintet on Not Two. Mazur, Gregorio, Tamura, Fuji, and Lopez; a combination of musicians I will always be down to hear -Butcher/Solberg/Barre Phillips on Relative Pitch -Duck Baker - Confabultions. Encounters dating 1994-2017 with an interesting range of players -Rodrigo Amado Motion Trio + Alexander Schlippenbach - The Field. Not yet formally announced on NoBusiness, but hopefully coming very soon. Also really looking forward to the new This Is Our Language album on Trost -Keith Rowe - Absence. His final solo guitar performance.

    ymmv, much of his work is sort of community-based, political, and in continuation of certain strains of post-60s black urban art. In that context, I like it and appreciate it very much, particularly the two Positive Knowledge albums on Music & Arts (there's also a 2xCD on another label that adds Wilbur Morris & Michael Wimberly that's good). If you appreciate some of the more text-based spiritual jazz & spoken word of the 70s, or William Parker's vocal projects, I think you'll find a lot to like here. If you're looking for something more straightforward, his date on NoBusiness with Wimberly & Sirone is quite good and the duo with Henry Grimes on Not Two is nice.

    Another (2xCD) 90s CT archival release from Fundacja Słuchaj on the horizon. Looks amazing: "Do you remember the legendary CD Legba Crossing released on FMP? Of course, you do! Each Cecil Taylor's music fan does it! Two years later Ove Volquartz assembled almost the same line-up and brought Cecil Taylor to Gottingen to work with the legendary artist longer and more intense. Here you have the whole monumental concert they gave on September 15th! What is the difference? Fundamental as always in the case of such great visionaries like Cecil was! Here, additionaly Mr. Taylor performs not only as a director and conductor but also as a full-time pianist!!!!!!! So let's discover what happened in 1990 at Junges Theater in Gottingen!!!!!"
  14. Jeanne Lee - Conspiracy reissue, at last

    Strange little catalogue, with the 2 mainstream titles in there. You can get the Birigwa and Natural Food albums on CD from Porter still. Both are interesting in a time capsule sense I guess, but neither did much for me. ymmv.
  15. Glad the CD edition is confirmed. The price differential alone is eye-popping.
