  1. Anthony Braxton Quartet Standards 2020

    That's a nice piece! I sometimes also point friends towards this compilation (available as a 'name your price' download), which offers a number of great 'ways in', depending on your starting preferences.

    I believe it was Compositions 418/419/420 at Oto those nights!
  3. Anthony Braxton

    Were you at those Cafe Oto gigs? I thought they were completely mind-blowing!
  4. Jeanne Lee - Conspiracy reissue, at last

    Amazing record!
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Just stumbled across this looking for something else - but yes! He's really an incredible clarinettist/bass clarinettist...for the latter, he also plays on this one: https://babel-label.bandcamp.com/album/step-wide-step-deep (the same sextet as on Unit[e])!
  6. John Coltrane: Technician

    No problem! I'm pretty sure I've heard Threadgill cite Johnson too...
  7. John Coltrane: Technician

    Vernard Johnson! (http://www.paristransatlantic.com/magazine/interviews/butcher.html)
  8. British Big Bands and Large Ensembles

    Hmmm...could that have been JS's birthday celebration? If so, I think I played with him in a quartet the night after they did 'Tales of the Algonquin'...I've sadly never played that material, which is a shame, since it's amazing, I quite agree! On the subject of John Surman, he sounds absolutely incredible as the featured soloist on Mike Westbrook's 'Love and Understanding' with the Swedish Radio Jazz Group...
  9. Togetherness Music

    Oh great! But no - just a very happy coincidence that those dates all lined up!
  10. Togetherness Music

    Thanks! And yes...I know that feeling!
  11. Togetherness Music

    Wow - thank you! That's really interesting - the Convergence Quartet album? I hadn't thought of that...I need to relisten...fascinating!!!
  12. Togetherness Music

    Thanks so much for listening, Adrian! The Resonances and Rhapsodies session was really fun...one of my last trips abroad to play before the lockdown! (And in fact, we recorded the Dolphy concert only the week after R&R, if I remember correctly...)
  13. Togetherness Music

    I'll take it! I don't have the heart to look at the competition, which could even put me in the relegation zone.
  14. Togetherness Music

    That's really kind of you - thanks so much for listening!

    If anyone is interested, I have a new album out next week - although available now to preorder, and there are some copies out there already. It's called 'Togetherness Music', and is an extended composition for 16 musicians, featuring (among others) Evan Parker and the Riot Ensemble - an amazing UK-based contemporary music ensemble, who commissioned the work in its original form. There is a full personnel on the Intakt website, and it's available to buy there, or via the Intakt Bandcamp page (it comes in their great new cardboard sleeve). Liner notes by James Fei. Miraculously, there was a window here in the UK last summer where it was safe and legal for us to get together in the studio to work on this music, and I'm thrilled with the results, so please do consider checking it out if you're curious!
