  1. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    I just bought a P3 with an Elys cart and love it. Hard to beat for the price.
  2. new SME (Spontaneous Music Ensemble) release

    she was stopping by Eddie Kramer's studio, from what I understand.
  3. It's the Post-Vaccines Mask Poll!!

    yeah, I am vaccinated but when I am down in NYC and anywhere indoors I keep mine on. When outdoors in the smaller burg I now call home, I don't worry about it at all because there's hardly anyone around.
  4. new SME (Spontaneous Music Ensemble) release

    barely.
  5. Percy France Memorial Website

    Wow, kudos!
  6. Laid off today - now what?

    Yeah. Sorry this happened, John, but you seem like the type of person that can turn lemons into lemonade. Good luck. Seems like many here have been in similar shoes and will have good advice.
  7. "Quartetto Gato Barbieri"

    yeah, saw that but it was already gone (not that I could've afforded it). Beautiful stuff, would love to hear the whole thing! this is another library LP featuring Barbieri in Italy in the late '60s, certainly freer: https://soundcloud.com/armagideon-times/intermezzi-jazz-04-lp-sbrugnolini-gato-barbieri-mega-rare-italian-free-jazz-session (no, I don't have it -- been on my want list for ages)
  8. Archie Shepp

    yeah, haven't seen it on any of the share blogs. Hopefully someone has it.
  9. Evan Parker

    not yet purging all my EP albums but the dude is not making it easy for himself...
  10. new Bill Evans 5 CD box set to be released

    I thought Craft was just doing the high end reissues, not mass market. See I was wrong.
  11. Archie Shepp

    was the full session ever released? Would love to hear this.
  12. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    yeah, I have that Zitro LP, which is killer. I don't have the Zig Zag.
  13. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Absolutely on all fronts. I actually wonder sometimes whether writing about music is relevant at all -- especially since "criticism" comes mostly from the social media/fan side now -- and while I continue to ply away at it in one form or another, one sometimes has to find other ways to engage with the work. FJB is not for me.
  14. All Things Hat

    I wish more nights were recorded. That band was on fire.
  15. Miles Dewey Davis

    don't forget our own Won All Eel
  16. Jeanne Lee - Conspiracy reissue, at last

    bought sealed original Natural Food and Birigwa from Mait via Luke (Porter) way back (IMO they are excellent), and picked up Wellstood and Frishberg later. I think the stuff is, as you say, a cool little capsule and an interesting scene. Edey seemed like an interesting character and I wish I had had the opportunity to meet him. my copy of Jeanne is an Earthforms pressing that I also got sealed.
  17. Jeanne Lee - Conspiracy reissue, at last

    right, yeah I see what you are saying. It's a little weird. Edey gave the tapes back to Lee, as I understand it, once Seeds folded. It makes sense that they are following the Earthforms artwork/etc. The presence of the plants on the cover denotes a Seeds release (they all have some variation of it). It's weird to me that Gunter never reissued it himself if he ostensibly has "rights." But go figure...
  18. Tim Buckley - Merry-Go-Round at the Carousel

    Will grip, thanks for the heads up.
  19. Jeanne Lee - Conspiracy reissue, at last

    interesting. I guess they were partners when the record came out so he could license it... for what it's worth the original pressing came out on Mait Edey's SEEDS label. As that imprint was going out of business, Jeanne picked it up and issued it on her Earthforms label nearly concurrently.
  20. do you need to have a separate phono preamp to make this work? Both of my amps are integrated but I have noticed some funny stereo LPs that would do well to be folded down.
  21. JuJu Live at 131 Prince Street

    ah, nice. I have the P-Vine LP. Excellent stuff.
  22. I have an original Polydor UK pressing of the Tchicai and that's how it was recorded. I always really liked the sonics -- the murkiness adds to the mystery. I don't think it could be improved upon too much.
  23. the Bo'Weavil is a needle-drop, yes? is it licensed?
  24. Unissued Coltrane

    I would like to hear the quintet with Marion Brown. Wonder if a safety exists or if it's torched...
