Digital purchase of this classic:

This and "Drum Ode" are the only ECM albums I have. 

I was crazy about Lieb and tried to hear him as often as I could, since I had heard him with Miles. That flute solo on "Ife" in those years 73/74 was outstanding. 

I think I love "Drum Ode" even more than "Lookout Farm", but "Lookout Farm" was not only the album, it was the touring group that we heard in the mid 70´s after Lieb had left Miles.

Zenzile Featuring Marion BrownR-20744002-1635291719-2330.jpg.629d2e6ecda31471478d48424c4bfff1.jpg

Does anyone know any background to this one? Not much information on who or what Zenzile was.

👍 - I have two copies:

Baystate RVJ-6009 – here backcover

and Baystate BVCJ-35123

Thanks. Brandon Ross. Weird Boston connection. Slightly soul / afro-beat sound. It's a bit of a random one. I do quite like the record. Or at least 3/4 of it.

Didn’t get much chance to listen yesterday. This morning I’m squeezing in some listening. After re-listening to the second half of the Benny Goodman Chronogical Classics cd I spun yesterday (that Quartet and Quintet material for Columbia was just fantastic with Red Norvo, Teddy Wilson, Morey Feld and in the Quintet the amazing Slam Stewart–and the Columbia engineering was just innovative and wonderful) I am now spinning Barylli Quartet “Mozart String Quartets” Japan UHQCD. An additional viola does a lot for this music. Sound is as good as the Beethoven recordings also reissued this year on UHQCD.

Yes. I've also picked up their Mozart string quartet recordings, and ordered the Beethoven Septet recordings. I like the way they interpret and play.

I'm a fan of Ted Daniel and this had been on the want list. Finally found a copy.

Not sure what critics would say, but it's a lot of fun to listen to.

With Ted Daniel (cornet), Newman T. Baker (perc), Charlie Burnham (violin), Joe Daley (tuba), Marvin Sewell (guitar)

Jelly-Roll Morton “Volume 1 1923-1929 The Alternative Takes In Chronological Order” Neatwork cd

I skipped the noisiest tracks. I’ve not spun Jelly Roll in some time. . . really enjoying these takes.
