    The first day of the 1972 edition of the Berlin Jazz Festival was reserved for musicians from the British Free Jazz/Improvisation scene. Several days ago (October 22) they all played also in Donaueschingen at the SWF-Jazz-Session. There the event was announced as 'London Music Now'.
    I borrowed the title although I don't know wether it was used in Berlin.
    I post it as I got it several years ago - to my ears the sound overall is very good.

    This kaleidoscopic, epic work, a bit like a piano concerto and symphony colliding, describes Brazil from many different angles – landscape, people, colours, street sounds, wildlife, culture. If you know Messiaen´s Turangalîla-Symphonie, you might also like this.

    This is a live performance from 1992, rebroadcast a few months ago on Rádio Cultura FM. There are occasional tape quality issues, but nothing too serious;

    As a warm welcome back to Tantris and small coda to his post, heres a magnificent, passionate recital by Nelson Freire as a young man, delivering a vivid set of some of Villa Lobos's most challenging  and often percussive piano music , including the best version i've ever heard of the highly dissonant early Rudepoema!

    This post is for Andy.  He was asking for "Praxis" which will follow as soon as I'm able to replace my corrupted cd-r copy of  the LP.
    The music here was never released but it is certainly worth your attention.

    I hadn´t come across Almeida Prado except as a footnote in some books, but I began to hear a few interesting fragments of his music on Brazil´s Rádio Cultura FM, so when I´ve come across LPs of his music, I buy 'em. He has an interesting biography, studying in Paris with Olivier Messiaen and Nadia Boulanger before returning to an academic life in Brazil.

    Here is a substantial cycle of his piano music – Cartas Celestes – that is on the surface a description of the night sky. The percussive sections clearly owe a debt to Boulez, but the deeper and pervasive influence is Messiaen - there are direct quotations from the Catalogue d´Oiseaux and Vingt Regards throughout. Just as the Catalogue is less a literal transcription of birdsong, and more an evocation and transformation of landscape, so the Cartas Celestes moves from description in Book 1 - nightfall, the milky way tracking across the sky, and then dawn - to deeper themes in the later books. The close of Book 5 and the opening of Book 6 are connected and really about time, and perhaps the fabric of space-time itself. Other sections evoke pulsing light and darkness. Some of the themes are very well done – particularly the entry of Orion the hunter in Book 3.

    I don´t know much about the pianist, Fernando Lopes, and am hoping that I´ll find more of his recordings, as he´s clearly very capable. The recording is full and luminescent, and I hope the vinyl rip is OK – any tips on how to improve this are gratefully received. With a bit of luck, we´ll see increased interest in Almeida Prado´s music, and some more recordings – there seems to be very little available. Apparently the Estudio Eldorado label was once the main presence for contemporary and improvised music in Brazil, but folded a few years back. I´m trying to find out what else was released on this label. There doesn´t seem to be anything similar operating now, but it would be great to see this recording reissued as it´s a major piece in contemporary piano music that deserves to be much better known.

    So - here we have the original rip from glmlr. The LP was posted here already in 2007 by sotise.
    I'll take the freedom to use the links of Alex and glmlr in the comments.
    I appreciate the collaboration - my thanks goes to both Alex and glmlr - both links lead to the same rip.

    Here is the first of the two Ovary Lodge records released, This was out on RCA in 1973 and rereleased on cd in 1999. I have the lp, but comparing it to the cd version, I would have to conclude that the background noise and pops/clicks are a little less noticeable on this version. One can hear that it is sourced from an lp, particularly in the quiet passages, of which there are many, indicating that the master tapes may have got lost in the mentime. The second Ovary Lodge came out on Ogun a few years later with Harry Miller replacing Roy Babbington and adding Julie Tippetts. That one is fairly easy to get  on cd, though the initial lp release is out of print. But as I understand, even the cd release of the first one may be hard to find.

    This first one came two years after Tippett's mammoth Centipede ensemble with 50 plus players and one year after Tippett went to the other extreme with the closeted, chamber-like Blueprint with roughly the same small group of musicians featured here and Ovary Lodge is very much a follow-up to Blueprint. This new one was fully improvised, as Tppett informed us, and all acoustic with no electronics, as producer Robert Fripp added.

    Reading some reviews, it seems quite apparent that for critics coming out of the jazz-prog-fusion intersection, this one was outside the comfort zone, especially for those who associated Tippett with his contribution to King Crimson records (with producer Robert Fripp being the obvious link). What we get here are two trio pieces at the beginning and end. In between there are a couple of piano solos and several pieces exploring space and silence, getting into some very quiet and intimate dynamics, even sounding vaguely meditative at points. This record, the Mutant Souds blog informs us, made the NWW (Nurse With Wound) list, a list which has been a sort of holy grail of obscure gems. The fellow at Allmusic finds this record to be challenging and one supposes, rewarding. Yes, I would think so, too.
