the LP was reissued just shy of two years ago, actually, but the CD is good news indeed. The Fire Still Burns should be available pretty soon on LP as well.

Even better.  Hope board members will let us know when those are available and how to get one.

David Lee, Sonny's drummer from the early 70s, also played with Roy Ayers, a.o.  One of the great WHOOOOOOSH drummers of all time, cymbals all the time, note the plural. A constant cushionbed of throbbing glowy metallic overtones.

Check him out!

He's amazing with Dickie Landry on Chatham Square in the early 70s; that material will be rereleased this year.

Never heard of it.  Love the era.  What's it like?

Also on those early 70's Sonny Rollins Milestones (plus the live in Japan), correct?   I like those albums more than what the consensus opinion for them would indicate.

Also on some of them...that's him on "Poinciana" on Next Album. Those cymbals are amazing...

He's also on Cutting Edge. which might be a slight mess in terms of recording, but not so bad that you can't hear him.

There's video of one gig (at least one) that made it to commercial VHS at one point, David Lee is just ALL up in it with those cymbals.

SOLOS is mid-size ensemble free improvisation (four woodwinds, two basses doubling on brass, drums, electric piano), pretty rollicking. 

4 CUTS is one drone-y group improvisation, a solo bass tune (overdubbed), saxophone solos and duos.

Here it is. This is the video that persuaded me to buy a copy last year

That's Vimeo.  So the reissue sounds better than the original?

yes. I love the original but having blasted the transfers on headphones, it's ridiculous how good this stuff sounds.

I am hopeful that at the pressing stage this good fortune continues.

Will be glad to pick up the Landry, having completed a cursory sampling here.  Look forward to the increased fidelity.

Dickie is a longtime friend so it's great to see this stuff coming out again indeed.
