  4. Covid Vaccination Poll Update

    I was very sceptical that the UK government would achieve what they have having had a parlous record on the entire Covid response. I don't think it's a coincidence that the vaccine programme wasn't tendered out to the private sector, like so much else in the response, but kept well within the NHS. So it's really the health sector's success rather than government.
  5. It sounded good earlier, will listen again over the next day or two edit to add: listening again now and I don't really detect muddiness. Sharrock isn't high in the ensemble mix at times and that mix is quite dense. Burrell's the biggest loser in the mix as I'm hearing it.

  8. Covid Vaccination Poll Update

    That's great news. My parents (both in late 80s) get their second doses next week. Only then will I feel comfortable visiting them for the first time in 18 months.
  9. Pharoah Sanders - Tauhid [Impulse 1968, reissue]
  10. Milford Graves and Jason Moran: Live at Big Ears

    That looks very interesting. thanks for highlighting it, I had no idea of its existence. Moran prices his downloads quite high which means with sales tax I'm paying £17 for one. CDs never cost that much and I bought all of those he released. The price puts me off, although the presence of Graves may just be the thing to make the added investment worthwhile this time. That's a lovely 'cover' photo too
  11. My favourites switch nearly every time I listen to any of his Impulses - such a strong run. I have a big soft spot for 'Live At The East' and that along with 'Karma' are probbaly my two favourites, today 'Tauhid' is cued up next. Since the Floating Points album, which I love, I've been on a mission to plug the gaps in my Pharoah Impulse leader-date vinyl collection. Complete now.

  13. British jazz reissues

    Same issue here with the Group Sounds Four and Five LP. Arrived with some white powdery addition to the grooves on side 1 that even when removed caused clicks etc. I've given it a good wash but not listened to it again yet. The few other LPs I have had from them have been trouble free.

  18. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    I like this post for two reasons. Firstly I never expected to see Prince Buster and Anthony Braxton referenced in the same sentence What a mash-up that would be. And secondly, to learn that I'm not alone in finding GTM turgid. I'm a big Braxton fan but that period was one very expansive arid desert for me.

  20. Wrong side of the ocean, sadly
  21. Is that the new one? How is it? I've been meaning to check it. Interesting artist
  22. I don't but I'm now intrigued by Baraka on Brotzmann. Can you point me to that?
