What we have here appears to be either a pre FM recording or raw soundboard studio,recordings of an adhoc configuration for what would be released under the rubric of John Rose's Relative band, as part of the compilation 'Forward of short leg'on the Dossier Label (Dossier ST 7529),A few longer fragments,also later appeared on a 3 disc compilation of Rose's Fringe Benefits Label, (Entropy 006 (CD), both of these are out of print, but in any case no more than ten minutes from these sessions was ever used.
All the Performers are still active , though i have to confess to never having heard Marcel Cuypers on anything else, and also to having heard precious little of the respective Oeuvres of Houtkamp and Ratajczack.
I Like Maggie Nicols a lot, her performance here is exemplary and hugely exiting! ,Jim Denley and John Rose (both of whom i saw separately and in different groupings live at around the time this session was recorded) ,and Roger Turner are now pretty much household names, the others though less well known are all Composer Improvisers who are still putting out records.
All pieces are freely improvised, the bulk of the material is comprised of group performances , interspersed with short Duos and Solos.
the Music is wonderful and still as fresh as paint!
here ae some links to the artists pages, and relevant sites, all including Marcel Cuypers have available recordings for sale!
Great Paul Dunmall is 60 today -- Happy Birthday Paul, and Thank You for the Music!
This wonderful duo recording was posted around last Christmas by Andy in Contributions section as wav. I did some minor fixations and converted it to flac recently, so here we go with modified photo from 4cd box Folks History (DLE 063), taken by Lynda Dunmall.
More thanks, Lady & Gentlemen.
Paul Dunmall - soprano sax, bagpipes, clarinet
Paul Rogers - double bass
Phoenix Arts Centre, Leicester, UK
27 September 1997
Five untitled improvised pieces, over 46 mins in total.
A couple of vintage gems here, recorded for the BBC in the late 60s.
First is the Blue Notes Sextet from 1967:
1. Traveling Somewhere
2. Sun Song
3. Sophisticated Lady
BBC Broadcast, late 1967
Mongezi Feza ~ trumpet
Dudu Pukwana ~ alto sax
Chris McGregor ~ piano
Ronnie Beer ~ tenor sax
Dave Holland ~ bass
Louis Moholo ~ drums
Strictly speaking, it is not really the Blue Notes as Johnny Dyani is absent from these recordings, but it's possible it was announced as such at the time.
Secondly, we have the Chris McGregor Sextet from 1968:
Chris McGregor Sextet
BBC Studio, London
Mongezi Feza (tpt);
Dudu Pukwana (as);
Ronnie Beers (ts);
Chris McGregor (p);
Dave Holland (b);
Laurence Allen (d);
1 Sabendye Baye (C. McGregor) 6:55
2 Introduction 1:10
4a Fazumizaza Izela (C. McGregor) 4:36
4b Introduction 0:19
5 Yekiti Squidiocious (C. McGregor) 9:43
6 Tikoloshi (C. McGregor)
The titles are taken from the Plosin database, but they match well with the announcements (as far as can be heard).
I've pieced together the second radio concert from two sources so as to retain the right sequence. I think the announcer could be Ronnie Scott. Anyone knows?
Thanks to online chums for supplying these treasures!
Happy Birthday Miloo! Come on down to the party one and all. Enjoy.

This is the third contribution from Can. The other two you'll find here and there.
In fact this LP was somehow the reason why we got to know each other.
Before Can Tutuğ mailed me the first time I didn't know about Takao Haga at all.
So all Kudos goes to him.

For Zippyshare users - track 1 exceeds the file size limit, so it is split into track 1 and 1b. You can either join them, or play with no gap.
We had requests for some of the Baden-Baden Free Jazz Meetings recently, so I thought it opportune to check the archives for more of these meetings. What's offered here are three sets, the first of which are excerpts from the 1967 meeting, the second is also at the Süd-West Rundfunk studios in Baden-Baden, but a little bit previous to the actual meeting of that year, and the third is unrelated, made for Radio Bremen, but also from 1967.
Also opportune to put Joachim-Ernst Behrendt at the top, the producer of both the Baden-Baden sessions and a key figure in bringing jazz to the public in Germany. The Baden-Baden meetings were very much his idea and he kept them going for years. We'll get to the 1970 and 1977 meetings in a little while.
The first set (bb67-1):

Just by nice coincidence, Alex Hawkins informed me at FB today about this new video being uploaded - HD recording of full duo concert at the Gateshead International Jazz Festival, The Sage, Gateshead. So I think it is appropriate to post it here. Louis and Alex released a studio recording Keep Your Heart Straight on Ogun last year. Another good message is that Ogun just reissued Brotherhood of Breath's Procession, remastered with 3 songs (over 20 mins) from original Toulouse performance (I believe) added, and it is already available from Wayside Music!
