Masayuki Takayanagi - Free Form Suite (TBM, rec. 1972).

R-1163216-1595165419-2631.jpeg (1).jpg

Now moved in to Leroy Jenkins' The Legend of Ai Glatson (Black Saint, 1978).

R-2406494-1318189344.jpeg (1).jpg

I reckon this might be the purest jazz violin (jazz fiddle?) record out there. I can think of lots of great jazz records with prominent violin solos or even lead violinist / composers (Billy Bang!), but it's hard to think of one where the pure improvisatory potential of a instrument is as central as on this record.

One of my favorite recordings, trying out the new OS Sunlight in my DSD DAC.

Disc 2 of the Larry Young ORTF set. The last track is a trio setting with Young on piano and I noticed some Monk influence in his playing, which made me reach for:

R-1313552-1410156455-7767.jpeg.jpg

Now playing Disc 2 of this.

Prompted by Rooster's revival of the thread about Oliver Nelson's "Stolen Moments":

51dKFCryAqL.jpg

Mark Murphy - Stolen... And Other Moments (32 Jazz/Muse)

I wish 32 Jazz would've reissued Murphy's albums complete, rather than chopping up the records and reissuing the tunes in a series of compilations.

That said, as far as comps go, this ain't bad.

Chick Corea "Circulus" Universal Japan SHM-CD reissue of a Blue Note reissue 2 LP.

Discogs comments saying this reissue is a needle drop - is that what you're hearing?

Roots' Stablemates (1993)

R-10156991-1492705725-9158.jpeg.jpg

A pretty good record, but not what it could have been. Too much talent is a dangerous thing.

 

Now on:

Koichi Matsukaze Trio & Toshiyuki Daitoku - Earth Mother (ALM, 1978).

R-6475278-1420145254-4859.jpeg.jpg

This is a new one to me, that I discovered from NTS radio's recent Japanese spiritual jazz episode. Enjoyable stuff.

Whether it is really "spiritual jazz" is another thing altogether. 😉

What a great record. Why hadn't I listened to it in so long?
