    Isn't that one of the LPs that Paul Buckmaster spun for Miles before the 'On The Corner' sessions? Buckmaster mentioned that "Mixtur" and "Gruppen" were on heavy rotation at Miles' house prior to On the Corner.
  3. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Karlheinz Stockhausen, Telemusik/Mixtur (DG). One side of electronics and tape collage and one side of orchestra tripped out through ring modulators. This and Gesang der Jünglinge/Kontakte are the ones I spin most from Stockhausen,

    Excellent choice. Many treasures to be found on the Hungaraton label in the 1970s and 1980s, especially by composers of the Budapest New Music Studio (Jeney and Sary were both founding members). I've yet to find a dud on that label. Zsolt Durko is another favourite. Do you have any other recommendations? Hungaraton also did that amazing edition of Bartok's works. Sorry for replying late and I don't have my records here, but I would recommend really almost anything by the New Music Studio composers (I'm particularly fond of Zoltan Jeney). Hungaroton also released a string of excellent electronic/electroacoustic records by Hungarian composers. And there's Kurtág, of course... (I'm not an expert on "straight" classical music, but given the high quality of so much contemporary/avant-garde releases on the label, I would imagine their standards to be pretty high there too. The Bartok edition you mentioned is a case in point.) now listening to Endre Szekely on Hungaroton (this time I spelled it correctly). More great stuff, especially a trio for percussion, piano and cello. Thanks for the Kurtag recommendation--that's one composer I really need to check out. haha the allmusic reviewer had following choice words for the cover (and the album i guess) "If things weren't dismal enough, the album cover, looking as though drawn by a fashion-school dropout, is possibly one of the worst ever". I always liked the album a lot and am listening to it right now Thanks for posting the cover. When I'm playing the record I always display the back cover because the front is so gaudily awful. The music, however, is wonderful. That's a great rendition of "The Hard Blues" and Hemphill's playing on the title cut makes the David Sanborn connection even less surprising.

    Julius Hemphill, Georgia Blue (Minor Music). Live recording featuring Alex and Nels Cline, Steubig and Jumma Santos. I think this was Nels' first recording. Features updated versions of "The Hard Blues" and "Dogon A.D." The cover screams 1980s.
  6. BFT 139 discussion

    He's pretty well-known among jazz fans north of the border. I liked that track from your last BFT so much that I bought the album (Sun Song).
  7. BFT 139 discussion

    Track 12. Sonny Greenwich? Track 14. A cover of Steve Lacy's "Blinks." By Dave Douglas I'm guessing. I love that version of "Beatrice." Is that a ring modulator on Track 10?

    Awesome--looking forward to it. ?
  9. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Julius Hemphill, Blue Boyé (Mbari). 2 LPs of Hemphill on alto, soprano and flute, often overdubbed. There's another similarly constituted 2 LP set from that era on Sackville.

  11. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Contemporary Hungarian Music, Zoltan Jeney and Laszlo Sary (Hungaraton). Early 1970s works from two Hungarian composers--very nice and adventurous.
  12. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Bobby Bradford, Love's Dream (Emanem) Miles Davis, Pangaea (CBS Sony)
  13. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    I love Corky Laing's drumming on "Never in my Life." There's some cool bass on that record too.
  14. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Eric Dolphy, Live at Gaslight Inn (Ingo) Lee Morgan, s/t (Blue Note)
  15. Marty Milner, RIP

    RIP. He played the guitarist in Chico Hamilton's band in Sweet Smell of Success. Unusual for Hollywood, he and his wife had been married since 1957.
  16. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    John Carter, Variations (Moers). Java: Gamelans from the Sultan's Palace in Jogjakarta (Archiv Produktion)
  17. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    ? Now listening to Frank Lowe, Tricks of the Trade (Marge), with Butch Morris.
  18. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Freddie Hubbard, The Body & The Soul (Impulse).
  19. Black Saint/Soul Note Box Sets

    I can see why he objected--it looks like it belongs on a hair metal record.
  20. Miles Davis, Live in Tokyo 1/22/75

    That's a great concert. I'm pretty sure Pete Cosey takes over the drum kit on the last track. He also played drums on the studio version of that song.
  21. Lee Morgan At The Both/And Club June 1970

    It's a nice set. I don't believe the location has ever been conclusively determined—Maupin says Both/And but the piano sounds the same as the Lighthouse.
  22. Star Trek - The Animated Series

    I remember seeing this in the '70s. George Takei and Nichelle Nichols weren't originally supposed to be part of the show, but Leonard Nimoy refused to do it unless they were involved, so they got added.
  23. Recordings Dedicated To Ornette's Music

    John Zorn's Spy vs. Spy with Tim Berne.
