Charles Tyler ~ Folly Fun Magic Music ~ 1992 (1995 Reissue)
Bleu Regard CT 1941
Following on from some 1970s postings of Charles Tyler below, here we move right up to 1990-92, his final years in France where he had settled. On this recording, he is accompanied by a French crew of much younger age, probably thrilled to be in the company of a 60s legend.
Stylistically, this record is all over the place which is not necessarily a bad thing to these ears. Starting with a mellow jazzy rendering of Wagner, it moves on to Bach and then to country and western (!), sounding not unlike Bob Dylan round about John Wesley Harding time. Nowadays, this is known as "Americana". Tyler can do that, too.
Then it's on to European fok, Native Indian chants and even futuristic folk, but with a link to the past! The record rounds off with a duet with Santacruz which strikes me as a signpost of what was to follow on his next and final record. Some folly, lots of fun and and more than a touch of magic! This is great record of maturity, versatility and as Thom Jurek says in his Allmusic review, more than that, it walks on the edge of profundity.

CD EPM 152072 (1993, OOP)
After removing at least 500 clicks I'm finally able to present this wonderful music.
In my IMHO this is one of Vesala's best recordings - excellent and intense drumming!
Strong baritone from Paakkunainen....Koskinen's trumpet!
Wonderful and joyful bass work from Hauta-aho...Pekka Pöyry's reeds are...Mircea Stan and his trombone...high wailing harmonies - snake-lines...clear articulation - no cliches....space even when playing heavy....enough praising...
A real gem - hope it will be re-issued soon - would be happy to delete the links and buy me a remastered CD....
Meanwhile - Enjoy.

Alacra Records – ALACRA 1002
I posted the Folly Fun Magic Music a little while ago and the one following, this one, was to be his last. In contrast to the former, here we're down to a trio, just sax, piano and bass, It' a low key affair, subdued, no flashes, a touch of melancholy to the proceedings. . All in all, a record of intimate beauty, even infinite beauty. We have a mix of standards, some select tunes from the Tyler repertoire, even my fave from the second ESP album, dedicated to Chris McGregor. Did they know each other or meet? Both had settled in France by the 1980s.
This record is a musical documention of a travelogue, so what better to cite the poem that starts off the record:
It was a return to the east
as in the children's music march
like the flight of the Surf ravin
on a voyage From jericho
they were happy sad hip folks
who knew of Cadiz of the west kentucky woods
they knew not, of the dark blue depths,
pale blue planet
lucifer got uptight
as he gazed upon the wasteland
of uptown manhattan puerto-rico
he came as a space traveller
to play his role in the warlock mystery drama
little did he know that the adventures of the ode to lady
day stand so strong
it was a saga of the outlaws
versus The legend of the lawman
I was only a mid western drifter
in search of the route
from saint-louis to kansas-city by
way of Chicago
as I told the tale of bari red
a man alone
who could twing twang twiddle all night along
with a song, A tale of bari red
I was just a mid western drifter
To quote Thom Jurek again from the Allmusic review, he left the best for last.
1. Mid-western drifter
2. Life can be so beautiful
3. There was a flower near Napoli

Here we have Gumpert's contribution to the soundtrack(s) for a famous and long going 'crime' series - quiet popular in Germany.
The model for the music is obviously Miles Davis'"Ascenseur pour l'échafaud" (Elevator to the Gallows) - but it has clearly it's own vibe.....and hey - what a line-up!

Dear friends and followers of Inconstant Sol
We do this re-up because there has been a so called reissue of this LP.
Take a look at discogs.
To put it frankly: It is a bootleg - and of course our post is technically the same.
But we feel there's a crucial difference - we don't ask you for twenty bucks....
What's more - we are meanwhile quite sure that the music you would hear on the LP is taken from our previous share here at IS.
Another point which should be mentioned is that not only Abraxas/Doxy isn't acting right toward the musicians, but it is also directly trying to scam customers.
Pushing the reissue as a "First edition of 500 numbered copies in a deluxe gold laminated jacket" (https://www.deep.hu/catalog/ACV2038) or "Limited, numbered pressing – on clear vinyl!" (https://www.dustygroove.com/item/724167) clearly ammounts to trying to get people to assume the product is high end.
Does "clear vinyl" really matter when you're pressing something which has been unprofessionally transfered from an LP to a digital file back to an LP?
Mentioning the "deluxe" aspect of the release and forgetting to write about this side of things is rather interesting...
We decided to do a reup again. This time including scans of the insert/liner notes (see above) which is not a part of the bootleg LP.

Procucer : Fred Lyman
Recorded at Zounds Recording Studios, New York City, May, 1963.
* : It is common practice among discographers to list Prince Lasha as the leader of this session. This short extract of a Fred Lyman interview suggests that this may not be exactly the case (courtesy of Ben Young and Marc Chaloin) : « ... mostly a jam-session [...] they were all in my studio, I don't know how they got these particular guys up there, it was probably Clifford Jordan got it together. And they just started to play and I started recording, and I played on it too, I played fluegelhorn on this track. And it turned out pretty good, [...] it was an example of what I liked to think music could be at that time. » According to Lyman, they picked up Don Cherry in the street…
** : Johann Heidenbauer suggests it could be read as crypted indication of the publishing date : L-7-18-63, i.e. Lasha, July 18, 1963.
*** : Read also the original liner notes (*.rtf format). Many thanks to A. Lukas for providing the original transfer, pictures of the original plain cardboard sleeve, labels, and liners notes, and to Pierre Crepon for relaying the info.
