Already posted in 2011 - here's the re-up....
A forgotten masterpiece of European Jazz.
'Room 1220' is a tender yet burning duo of Mangelsdorff and Surman. And the mood of 'My Kind Of Beauty' still needs a public location (club or however you want to call it) to be build for ... in general I'm not a big fan of the Hammond organ, but what Eddy Louis is able to deliver ... and please listen to John Surman and Albert Mangelsdorff - they use the clichés - yet they reach a level far above such truisms.

This is an all time favourite from Itaru Oki, from the early days of Japanese free jazz. There were a rush of tracks that they released around this time :-
Satsujin Kyoshitsu - LP on the Jazz Creaters label, recorded in Tokyo in February 1970, currently available on CD - Bridge (049) from Japan Improv
Mood, recorded live Shibuya Public Hall, on April 30, 1970 and included on "Sensational Jazz '70", which was recently re-released on CD by Columbia and available at Japan Improv (with other tracks by Mototeru Takagi, Masahiko Sato, Terumasa Hino, New Herd, etc).
Four Tracks on Trio By Trio + 1, recorded live at Yamaha Hall, Ginza, Tokyo, May 20, 1970, also re-released on CD on Think! Records: 1 side Yosuke Yamashita Trio, 1 side Itaru Oki Trio, 1 side Yuji Ono Trio and 1 side Itaru Oki + Yuji Ono + Kimiko Kasai.
This all preceded a live recording of October Revolution, on Inspiration & Power 14 Free Jazz Festival 1, from 1973.
This LP was in a box set of 10 LPs by Japanese jazz artists. I think it was mainly sold to people buying Toshiba audio equipment.
Great, historic music and 40 years out of print.

(this rip from UCCU-9019, CD Japan)
Tristano was an eccentric pioneer, a contemporary and friend of Bebop legends like Gillespie and Parker , he developed an alternative transition out of the swing era.
Like one of his greatest formative influences Art Tatum, he was blind, and equally prodigious.
One hear's advanced harmonies,angular block chords extensive use of dissonance, and hints of atonality in even his earliest work..
His 1949 Capitol recordings (Digression,Intuition) with a group featuring Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh have been described as the first Free improvised jazz without predetermined thematic material, fixed Chord structures, predetermined Rhythms etc..
whats interesting about this is that, quite apart from the more conventional group pieces, the 1953 title piece Descent into the Maelstrom (Inspired by Edgar A.Poe) is a collage of his most passionately dense free playing on record, which to my ears recalls some of Cecil Taylor's Solos of 20 years later , , circa Indent and Silent Tongues.
A raw rip,(taken from my Inner City vers) no syrup , no tracking ... click on the back cover scans for personnel (session dates range from 1952-66)
There are some great Tristano records currently available including the perennial Atlantic classics, "Lennie Tristano", 1955, "the new Tristano"1960, a proper box set of early recordings , loads of live material on Carol Tristano's Jazz records Label.

This from the Ottawa Citizen.
Three weeks ago I bought the book "Free Jazz And Improvisation On Vinyl 1965 - 1985".
I was a bit disappointed but as an 'addict' I enjoyed it notwithstanding its shortcomings and mistakes.
And the 'mistakes' prompted the idea to collect all known information about never released LPs (or cassettes et.al.).
In the book there's a section about Po Torch Records - Paul Lovens' label.
An insert which was included in some of the releases (e.g. Rutherford-Lovens JWD/PTR 3) had an announcement for six (two in the book) LPs which never made it onto the turntable...
I would like to suggest that we confine ourselves to the period from 1960 to 1985.
Maybe we should - at least for a start - list only items which are related to Free Jazz.
Items which are circulating as bootlegs of these elusive sound carriers are welcome as well - we are looking for NIP (never in print) issues which would/could/should have been official releases.
As much information as available would be nice: line-up, title, recording-date, track-titles, label etc. - maybe we can collect some data for a discography solely made of recordings which were never edited.
Here are the first few un-released recordings..........

Thanks to Dimer jackmw, for this one!
A great record and one that's been surprisingly unissued on CD... something which we deplore!
Perhaps someday , the boffins who curate Mosaic records might consider issuing a deluxe Box-Set , of Bley's important 60's Trio recordings.
Enjoy , and please support Bley by buying his current cd's and fascinating book of interviews with Norman Meehan, "Time will Tell' from Bley's own site if possible.

An audience recording from a wonderful group who made only very few recordings - especially the first track here is excellent.
At the moment there's only one recording readily available as a download - but it's worth every penny.
