Recorded 13th June 2010 at Elton's old flat in Hackney, London
Broadcast 6th September 2010
BBC Jazz on 3, presented by Jez Nelson
From the BBC website at the time of the braodcast:
This completely improvised set was recorded in June this year in the living room of Dean's flat in London's Dalston. Four years after his death it still contained posters, tapes and memorabilia that provided poignant reminders of Dean's life and work, and plenty of inspiration for the musicians who came together to remember him. Just a few days after this session was recorded the flat was due to be cleared out and refurbished.

The AACM is still very much active, both in Chcago and in New York. Info can be found here: http://aacmchicago.org/ and here: http://aacm-newyork.com/.
So why not have some live Roscoe Mitchell from exactly 39 years ago? This was recorded at La Mama in New York, a place given to theatre and music in the late 70s and a spot for off-mainstream jazzers to ply their trade.
This was one of a series of recordings by "orchiddoctor" from the latter part of the 70s, inside and outside NY. I have posted a little bit before, but there will be more AACM-related material in the time to come, drawing on these recordings from the period.
This was upload to the Dime torrent site by "carville", so thanks to both for making it available to members, and we shall do our bit here to keep it available to all interested.

Finally, some keen observations from "orchiddoctor":
What can I say about Roscoe Mitchell? In my opinion, he is the king of them all. Certainly in the late 70s, he was the most sought out musician in the bunch. Besides seeing him with the AEC some 30 times, I saw him at the Wildflowers festival, with Muhal (and Air), in a septet, in a trio with Oliver Lake and Philip Wilson, and solo. All but the Wildflowers (available commercially) is going up on Dime.
I have many memories of Roscoe. Sometimes he would just show up to hear someone else play and then hang out. Often, we would catch a set at the Palace and then walk over to the West Side to catch a set of someone else. I walked with Muhal several times and once with "Scowie. We talked about his disdain for the fact that his music (and others') was drawing a predominately white audience with few blacks in attendance, We agreed that the white audience heard things in a more cerebral manner while black folks heard the ancestral rhythms. At any rate, he was pleased that so many people were opening up their ears, minds and hearts to listen to this music. If you're reading this, you already have. Enjoy!
We had a nice letter from Geoff in April which went something like this:
As you might know, April is Jazz Appreciation Month and to celebrate I’ve been commissioned to put together an illustrated history of jazz. which you can see here (clicking on the graphic in the link will blow it up considerably).
It covers the most influential genres, alongside some of the key players in the evolution of jazz, all presented in a cool, retro illustration reminiscent of 50s style graphic design.
I saw Inconstant Sol covers a lot of jazz and thought it might be something you’d enjoy, so decided to get in touch. If you like it, and think your readers might too, I’d love it if you would like to feature it. Just let me know if you’re interested and I’ll send over a high res image for you to upload!
Of course we are!
