In Memoriam, Graham Rogers, aka glmlr- 1948-2013
a Friend and occasional contributor here , avid/rabid, music aficionado,who died of a heart attack in his home in Athens, dec 21st, he raved frequently about Sunny Murray's sizzle cymbal , and loved David Murray also.... R.I.P (whatever that means stripped of all religious context)
This is a great audience recording , one i often return to............He particularly liked it too.
Many thanks to whoever recorded this

Recently I had the chance to buy a mint copy of a LP I've never heard about.
After listening to it I thought to share it with you - hope you don't mind my helpless efforts to make a picture from the front. My scanner won't work and the winter-light in Germany doesn't really help.
So you have the cover including the flash - which I tried to dim out with my finger...
Not at least this recording shows again the mastery of John Carter - recommended listening.

IBEDON IAS 1000
A pioneer of the use of Synths in Jazz, along with Sun Ra , Burton Green , and Masahiko Satoh....
Bley made several recordings with Peacock in this lyrical spacey free style, this is very similar territory to the better known , America lp, Improvisie-(AM6121),
More concise, and probably heavily edited from longer live performances , this has the added bonus of featuring more of Annette Peacocks , distinctive voice, seemingly pitched somewhere between , insouciant bored irony , and heartbroken agony...
Bleys incredible solo on Gargantuan encounter, is a marvel ,threatening to recklessly career out of control and fly off the rails into some bottomless abyss.. hell of a ride,
ripped from a friends well worn copy years ago , its last reissue on cd was in Japan ,2 decades ago...
would be great to be able to buy a Bley produced cd of further contemporaneous live material in this vein!

which with his permission i'd like to relay here in edited form...
Before i do that i'll state that i also want to unashamedly ,advertise the fact that D.Serro ,is interested in releasing a couple of very worthwhile projects,on lp, including a duo from the 70's by Byard Lancaster and Yusef Yancy..
a costly exercise that requires a lot of money... i told Dan that we have no hesitation , advertising the fact that he has new Sealed copies of Live at peace church for sale for twenty dollars U.S , about half the price that second hand copies sell for.
My appeal is to Vinyl Aficionados, who might want to buy or are considering buying peace church , to do so directly from Dan Serro, in the knowledge that you will be helping fund further releases.
i asked Him about the circumstances of its recording and release, saying i felt it was the most vivid aural document he had produced!
here are a few ruminations by him
"It was something that happened by accident. I had just gotten my recording equipment and a friend told me that i should record this concert at the Peace Church. I did not know who David was at the time.
He had just come from California and was new on the scene. I asked if the musicians would mind and was told no. So i got a truck and took the equipment to the Church and set up. Just 4 mikes and a small mixer with 4 inputs.
Many years later i played the tape for a Japanese custmer who had come in from Japan and was at my place buying records.
By then David was famous and had a lot of records out. the guy was a big Murray fan and he wanted me to put out the record.
I had ran out of money for the records i had pt out on Kharma and told him and he said he would go partners with me on it.
I contacted David and we made a deal (expensive) and then after paying David and the others i contacted the guy in Japan.
The Japanese had just had a big stock market loss and he said he couldn't come up with the money.
Since i had already paid David i could do nothing else but put the record out.
Limited by contract to 1500 copies.
I agree that it is the best job of recording i ever did.... Don't know if maybe it was the Church that helped or just the way i had miked them but it came out fantastic.
Things happen in strange ways sometimes. Like the Burton Greene record. Keshavan was not supposed to be on that record.
He got up on stage while i was recording and i was afraid i would not have enough to put the record out.
It was supposed to be a solo piano record.It is my second favorite record of all of the ones i put out."
Again,Please consider buying a copy directly from Dan , who is a nice , approachable Man, in the knowledge that you will be helping fund worthwhile projects.
he can be contacted at.
PS ... hope my confreres here don't mind if this stays at the top of the page for awhile...
We don't go in for paid advertising here on this blog , nor do we use spurious disclaimers about our shares or ask for donations for ourselves ...,.i'd like to state categorically that neither i or anyone else here is being paid in cash or kind for this !

Some great CD's out, on C.I.M.P , Cadence, and NoBuisness, among others! (incidentally though..the Cimp Cadence , Klompfoot site is still down)
We've always felt Greene got short shrift in shitty coffee table Jazz guides , especially the Penguin Guide to Jazz which in the early editions seemed to dismiss him almost entirely as uneven at best , or as a mediocrity at worst... Much loved classics like aquariana , only rating a meagre, 2 stars...and nothing much rating above that.
Fuck it , throw those old jazz guides away and lend Greene's genius your Actuel ears!!

To commemorate Yusef Lateef, who died 23. december 2013 at the age of 93, here are three concerts from Europe in 1971. In fact, not only from the same year, but on three consecutive nights! I don't think we have done anything like this on the blog before, so this is a rare opportunity to catch the artist at work over a short, but intense period of time. The first two were in Germany and the last one in the Netherlands. All three were broadcast on radio, taped from there and uploaded to the Dime torrent site.
All solid grooves here and blue notes all around. Nothing to scare the chickens, just persistent, dependable musicianship! To be enjoyed unreservedly!

Trane's spirit hovers gently over this neglected BYG gem, which to my ears is a companion piece to the Outrageously campily eclectic monster psychedellica of dear professor Leary..
the chemistry's so good , Kuhn , Jenny- Clarke and Romano , seemed to have forged a lasting musical friendship , resulting in many further collaborations over the years...
Kuhn is still recording prolifically ..take a look
J, sorry we cant help with "Paris is beautiful" i don't think any of us has heard it, and certainly should any of our readers want to share a nice raw syrup free, vinyl rip , we would all be most appreciative ..
. our belief is that the BYG catalog, ought by now to be firmly in the Public Domain given that so few of the artists actually saw a dime from recordings which have by and large been circulating in so many dubious semi legitimate issues over the decades ..
