Okay, many of you will think this is weird: Heritage of the March, Volume 73 - US Naval Academy Band. There seem to have been at least 100 volumes of this series, featuring various bands and intended for band geeks such as myself. I found a few volumes in a used record store a couple of weeks ago and bought one that looked interesting - the marches of Charles Zimmerman (bandmaster of the Naval Academy band from 1862 to 1916) and Michele Lozzi, an obscure Italian-American band composer.

Marches are easy to write, but hard to make interesting. Most of the Zimmerman and Lozzi marches here are really good - melodic and original. I'm enjoying this one so much that I'm going back to pick up the other volumes I saw.

Why in the world would you admit to this, for all the world to see??? Is it a cry for help? Or a cry to locate another BAND GEEEEEEEEEEEEEK like yourself?

Dude, start your own thread for crap like this....or, just say what vinyl you are spinning and let Nessa comment on it.

Thanks

I dunno, Jeff's tastes are pretty respectable so far. His BFT was really swell.

Thanks, CT. I figure most of us who listen to lots of different music have odd little corners in our musical tastes that seem strange to others. And I certainly don't mind being ribbed about my taste by those I respect here.

Ornette Coleman 'Soapsuds, Soapsuds' (Artists House)

Very good album. Too bad the label went down before they could release the June 1977 Ornette session with Don Cherry, Dewey Redman, James Blood Ulmer, David Izenzon, Buster Williams, Ed Blackwell, Billy Higgins and others that is mentioned - among others - in the accompanying booklet inserted in the LP.

I'm interested in what Jeff has to say. If you're not, just move on to another thread or post. Unless what you posted was an attempt at humor ... ?

Seemed like a pretty shitty attempt to me, verging on trolling.

Guess I should reread the liners... don't remember seeing this but it would be incredible to hear!

Did Ornette record anything else for the label? Sounds like good fodder for Mosaic's first Ornette project ;)

Yes I am interested too.

Do you prefer my collection of original mexican pressings of Paso Doble, dude?

Yes - Body Meta and a sideman appearance on Blood Ulmer's Tales of Captain Black. Good stuff, and I think both are in print on CD.

The vinyl I'm spinning, posted for all the world to see:

Karl Berger/Dave Friedman/Tom van der Geld/Wolfgang Lackerschmid - Vibes Summit (MPS). I'm a sucker for these Joachim Berendt "summits" - four great soloists on the same instrument and a rhythm section. I've got the flute, alto and trombone LPs in addition to this one. The vibes LP is excellent - not cluttered or "clangy" at all.

The discography in the liner notes also indicate another unreleased album for the label by Ornette Coleman 'The Quartet', recorded in December 1976 with Don Cherry, Charlie Haden and Billy Higgins :rolleyes:
