    Only 25 minutes but interesting to hear John Stevens (and Paul Rogers) playing standards.  Simon Picard is still an unrecognised wonder on the saxophone.

    Linneage- tdk c90 2nd gen----Nakamichi 500----Zoom---'puter---Traders little helper--wav to Flac 
    Soundforge (raise levels-split tracks)

    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.

     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
    4. Pibroch

     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);
    Unknown (ann)

    1 Sabendye Baye (C. McGregor) 6:55
    2 Introduction 1:10
    3 Nikomakwe
    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!

    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.
    He has also a (web) radio show with Free Jazz and Free Improvisation "Bodrum Kat"- check it out:


    Takao Haga, alto saxophone, voice

    A. Piyo  20:36       
    B. Pio   18:42

    Released (and recorded?) in 1982 (in Japan?).


    Notes: Comes in a handpainted, fold-out jacket. Takao Haga is a free altoist in the Kaoru Abe style.

     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):

    December 16-18, 1967

    1. ANDALUSIAN PROVERB (Jeanne Lee/Gunter Hampel) – 5:37
    Jeanne Lee voc; Albert Mangelsdorff tb; Gunter Hampel vib; Buschi Niebergall b; Pierre Courbois d.

    2. CUBIC (Marion Brown) – 4:13
    Marion Brown as; Peter Kowald b; Sven Åke Johansson d.

    3. JEPA (Albert Mangelsdorff/Evan Parker) – 5:31
    Albert Mangelsdorff tb; Evan Parker ss; Peter Kowald b; John Stevens d.

    4. RELATIONSHIP (Don Cherry/Evan Parker) – 9:03
    Don Cherry p-tp; Evan Parker ss; Peter Kowald b; Buschi Niebergall b; John Stevens d.

    The second set (bb67-2):

    October/November 1967 – Baden-Baden (G), SWF Studio Session
    Irene Schweizer p; Uli Trepte b; Mani Neumeier d/tabla.

    1. STOP TWICE (Irene Schweizer) – 3:22
    2. FOR KESHAV, dedicated to Keshav Sathe (Mani Neumeier) – 4:38
    3. PRE-BEAT CONCEPTION (Irene Schweizer) – 6:57

    and, finally, the third set (fb67):

    September 12 1967

    1. ANYTHING GOES (Irene Schweizer) – 9:11 
    Irene Schweizer p; Uli Trepte b; Mani Neumeier d.

    2. EVERYTHING (Peter Brötzmann) – 6:36
    Peter Brötzmann ts; Fred van Hove p; Peter Kowald b; Sven Åke Johansson d.

    3. PIANO SKETCHES (Irene Schweizer) – 10:14
    Fred van Hove, Irene Schweizer, Alexander von Schlippenbach p; Peter Kowald, Uli Trepte, Buschi Niebergall b; Sven Åke Johansson, Mani Neumeier, Jaki Liebezeit d.

    4. THREE (Peter Brötzmann) – 7:59
    Peter Brötzmann ts; Fred van Hove, Irene Schweizer, Alexander von Schlippenbach p; Peter Kowald, Uli Trepte, Buschi Niebergall b; Sven Åke Johansson, Mani Neumeier, Jaki Liebezeit d.

    5. IMPROVISATIONEN (Sven Åke Johansson) – 15:12
    Irene Schweizer Trio + Peter Brötzmann Quartet + Manfred Schoof Quintet

    These were all recordings made by "sammler kk" and made available on the Dime torrent site in late 2007. None of these recordings has to my knowledge been publically released. 

    Some fodder for the weekend, eh?

    That unique sound played with passion and spirit.  A dear friend.        A good laugh.  Generous and unfazed by anything.  His band-leader skills.  His compositions.  His commitment to free playing.

    His Shamanist beliefs.  His encouragement for any good musician he heard and not afraid to tell them.  His flat in Stoke Newington, London, a gathering place and watering hole for musicians and friends for thirty years or more.  His gallery of photographs on the wall, some very faded.  His love of sport and getting high.

    Family, friends, musicians - we will all miss him greatly.

    Paul Dunmall


    Maybe you too were drawn to the jazz spirit by Elton Dean playing with Soft Machine thirty five years ago!  Elton's fabulous solo at the end of Slightly All The Time on Third still sounds fabulous but it never moved me as much as listening to it after learning that he was no longer with us.

    Elton Dean only ever sounded like himself, which was always heartfelt and beautiful.  The vitality of this thing we call jazz, improvised music, is so great, so inspiring and so useful that we must embrace and treasure it.

    Like any sax player on the scene, Elton recognised Paul Dunmall to be the giant that he is, and once said he thought Mujician was the best band since Coltrane's.  So to play in the grouping presented here with Paul and the superlative Paul Rogers and legendary Tony Levin, I know was special to him.

    And the music was happening, like it always did when Elton played.  Everyone plays great and is great.

    So please forgive a bit of pre-echo from my cassette and be thrilled by four men reminding us there's a whole other dimension out there!

    Thank you Elton.

    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!
