  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Pat Thomas - Al-Khwarizmi Variations (Fataka, 2013) Revisiting one I haven't listened to in a while.
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Art Farmer Quartet - Sing Me Softly of the Blues (Atlantic, 1965) That rhythm section of Steve Kuhn, Steve Swallow and Pete La Roca was one of the most magical from the 1960s.

    Nothing quite like feeling you are being made to do homework. I am currently enjoying: Dob Pullen and the African Brazilian Connection's Kele Mou Bana. Just finished: Lee Konitz' and Peggy Stern's The Jobim Collection on Philology.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Lee Konitz - Meets Warne Marsh Again (Pausa, 1977) Picked on vinyl after @JSngry's recommendation back in May. Definitely worth it.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Wildflowers, Vol. 5 (Casablanca, 1977) A real gem of Roscoe Mitchell on the second side of this one. Jerome Cooper and Don Moye in tow on percussion, traps and saw.

    Bit of a Roscoe Mitchell / AEC marathon today chez Rabshakeh, to celebrate his 81st.

    Thanks everyone!

    Yep. That's the one. I am slightly intimidated by Tony Scott's hairline.

    John Lindberg Trio - Give and Take (Black Saint, 1982) I hadn't realised that, not only is there another George Lewis, but there is another John Lindberg Trio. In the latter case, it is a Swedish rockabilly combo that sometimes goes by "JLT".
  10. Marion Brown

    A short film about Brown, made by Harry English in 1967. Interesting for me is the fact that he was clearly listening to Roscoe Mitchell even in 1967 before Paris: there is a lingering shot of an implausibly clean apartment with a copy of Sounds propped on the wall. Brown, of all the NY Ascension crowd, seems to be the only one who attempted to assimilate what he was hearing from the Chicagoans.

    It is the first time I had heard it. I think I picked it up because of @Teasing the Korean's recommendation, but it took me a while to listen to it because I had an idea it would be just like the Shelley Manne album Peter Gunn, but with more Herbie Mann, which didn't sell it to me. Thanks. I am one of the breed of human who fetishes the "original" LP playing experience sequence. I like to listen to what was heard by listeners at the time and in 30/40 minute chunks, maximum. Bonus tracks and luxury double vinyl reissues send me into paroxysms of indignant fury. Box sets leave me cold. I can just about handle a Live At Dreher but in all other cases I prefer to track down or experience the original LPs. Thanks for these!

    Thanks!

    Is this a compilation? I've been trying to figure out which LPs it is taken from, but discogs isn't much help.

    Even after reading this, I looked at the cover and thought, 'what the hell'? Definitely not a 1957 look.
