  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    really enjoying this, so far but there's long way to go (59 tracks to be precise)
  2. Streaming this set now. 'Desafinado' definitely identifiable as have been the other two tunes I've heard so far. To me it just sounds like Anthony Braxton playing some famous tunes. If you don't like his playing elsewhere this isn't going to convert you. I always hear the standards and tribute albums as his recordings where his 'cool' influences are so apparent, but what do i know.
  3. And LP Standards sets in the pre-CD age too
  4. The band is Alexander Hawkins (of this parish) p. Neil Charles b. Stephen Davis dr., that's Alex's trio early review here https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/jun/18/anthony-braxton-quartet-standards-2020-review-astonishing-chronicle-from-a-one-off Those band details are actually on the page that you linked to, towards the bottom where it gives an overview of the recordings
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    My source was pretty reliable. I suspect the difference between the live experience and relistening four years later is what's creating the doubt. I remember more Braxton. I'm not stressing about it just listening and enjoying it a lot this time round. It's a very nice recording if it is live.

    Composition No. 420 from the Café Oto gig I attended so I'm led to believe
  7. Not just reissues either. The recent Charles Lloyd release was a Tone Poet, imaginatively titled 'Tone Poet'
  8. What music did you buy today?

    finally found an LP set at a price I could justify spending
  9. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    I think once it was decided to be a multi-country based competition the location of the final became largely irrelevant in footballing terms. Reports here suggest the government is considering relaxing quarantine rules for UEFA officials and VIPs so that it stays at Wembley. Another 'one rule for us, one rule for them, so beloved of Boris and his cronies. If it does go to Budapest my main concern would be the publicity coup it gives the Orban regime.
  10. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    I realise I have two GTM I enjoy. This one https://www.discogs.com/Anthony-Braxton-Quartet-GTM-2006/release/1298503 And another on New Braxton House I can't see on Discogs. I tried to buy the set I attended but listening now I'm not convinced it is but memory plays tricks Edit to add: found the other https://www.discogs.com/Anthony-Braxton-Sextet-Istanbul-1996/release/1203212
  11. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    I saw Zim at Café Oto and it was an amazing evening's music. I had also been completely underwhelmed by most GTM (making an exception for one sextet recording I enjoy). I bought one of the sets on this new collection and I'm still to really connect with it. I can see myself streaming more of the sets, definitely.
  12. Yes, I tempted by that too
  13. Fiendish laugh, fear not, happy with my original
  14. Fiendish indeed but realises in Devon at the moment, places online order
  15. l had the same issue about 6 months ago and bought a Pro-ject Debut Carbon Esprit because I wanted 45/33 switch. Very pleased with it but it's belt drive. It was my first attempt to spend more money on kit than music!
  16. Race you there (adopts villainous disguise)
  17. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Foden to complete his Gazza impersonation
  18. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Thanks again. I think I can imagine what it might sound like, good.
  19. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Thanks. I see it's no longer cheap. I'm tempted
