    Richard Davis what can one say!.. his records under his own name are so undervalued.. most of them are out of print...
    This is a passionate testament to the trio's heartfelt political activism, something considered corny and passé in todays largely arid musical landscape... evermore relevant though in a world that is arguably geopolitically worse off than it was in 73.
    Its a world where bread and circuses take on a whole other dimension, the illusion of personal freedom indistinguishable from and so frequently confused with the sphere of personal consumption.

    I've always  loved the more abstract side of Davis's musical sensibility amply displayed here in a set
    of glowing largely improvised pieces..on the opening Blues" Song for Wounded knee" , Davis uses the melody to blue Monk.. but the rest is pretty free.. Davis's arco is evident throughout.. some passages on 'America the beautiful "or "Agnewstic"wouldn't be out of place in a chamber piece by Helmut Lachenmann...
    staggering.. gorgeous!
    enjoy!
    ps.. this may have been partially inspired by the great book "Bury my heart at Wounded Knee"which came out around that time

     Jimmy Giuffre genre bender extraordinaire, without who's contribution contemporary free improvised music might not even exist ..or would at least be very different.

    .He did it before AMM, SME,MEV.. or any other Acronymed cats!....

    Innovative arranger with Woody Herman in the 40's,inventor of folk inflected chamber
    Jazz,,............pioneer of so called third stream... and  in a lesser trawled period as on these lp's synthesiser of a raw rhythmically but paradoxically ethereal.. propulsive  freewheeling free Jazz,with strong Asian and African accents ....and the tunes are in no way generic or anodyne (despite the track titles new age connotations)

    Giuffre had the gift here of a flexible creative rhythm section ..(where the F..are they now?), huge dynamic range .. extraordinary MAGICO empathy!

    Damned...these records are ., too beautiful ,for this grotesque corrupting physical reality we are obliged to inhabit..or think we inhabit... trapped in some Devils dream time!

    I know the Choice catalogue has been reissued in Japan circa early thousands , i think there was also an abridged reissue culled from both these lp's .. but that's long gone too..i think!

    enjoy!

    Czech group Limbo (well, the bass player is Ukrainian, and current drummer from Slovakia), led by reed player Pavel Hrubý, will celebrate 10 years anniversary soon. As acoustic quartet, they are always operating ECM-like side of freebop with slight direction towards improv (at concerts especially). Other (sometimes parallel) seven piece, so called electro-acoustic incarnation is no less attractive. Presented here is their self released acoustic debut, which was reissued last year as mp3 download by blogspot netlabel Signals from Arkaim with one bonus track.
    Their fourh (third acoustic) album titled Koncert from 2012 is out on Polí5 label and available in all formats with Name your price option on label's bandcamp store. Rip is from original CD-R release.

    There is a request for Hotan Yamamoto's "Silver World" which I have as a LP. But unfortunately not yet ripped.
    Honestly I don't know when I will be able to do so...
    But I got three rips - some month ago - from a great shakuhachi player whom I previously only knew by name.
    Have listened to the music only a bit - but it's quite special to say the least.....

    WATAZUMIDO DOSO ROSHI (1910-1992) is perhaps the most legendary of all modern shakuhachi players and teachers. Amongst his many students is Yokoyama Katsuya, one of greatest players in Japan today.

    Regarding himself as something other than a musician, Watazumido based his music in an uncompromising vigorous physical discipline. He was a practitioner of the Jo stick, a long hardwood pole with which he used to stretch, massage, pounds and invigorate his body in a daily regimen beginning at 3:30 AM each day. For over 3,000 consecutive days, he maintained this discipline.

    Watazumido studied Rinzai Zen attaining the title of Roshi or Master and later became the Kanjo or unifying head of the Fuke sect of Zen Buddhism. He shunned traditional organized Zen practice for 32 years in favor of his own iconoclastic approach distinguished by breath training and vigorous exercise at its core. The lengthening of the "Out Breath" in his practice is directly descended from the wisdom of the breath as practiced in Zen.

    Watazumido's music is as unique as it is intense. His style of shakuhachi playing is based on a discipline combining Zen breath awareness and the martial arts. He is known for the blowing an original, personal style of Honkyoku on bamboos of enormous size and length called hotchiku flutes. shakuhachi.com
