    Here is something different than our usual posts. Years ago some contributors posted some Indian classical music, mostly Khyal, let’s return to this tradition of world music. Here is a post of instrumental dhrupad. This tradition is the oldest and the most respected in India. Originally it comes from temple singers but Dhrupad masters became court musicians. It is the case of Ustad Ziauddin Khan father of Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar who was musicians ate the court of Udaypur’s Maharajah. Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar was born in 1929 and died in 1990, he represents the 19th generation of the Dagar tradition also named Dagarvani. Beside Ustad Asad Ali Khan, Ustad Z.M. Dagar was probably the most famous Dhrupad musician who played the rudra vena or Been. In the Dagar tradition Ustad Z.M. Dagar opened a new tradition. Before him the rudra veena was never played in front of audience. If almost all the Dagar were trained in the veena, they were only privately playing it, in public they concentrate on the vocal Dhrupad. Ustad Z.M. Dagar is the first to choose the rudra veena as his primary instrument, he also made some changes in the structure of the been to create greater resonance. With the help of instrument maker Kanai Lal from Kolkata the rudra veena get a deeper sound and became a larger bass instrument.
    More informations on the history of the rudra veena/been can be found at 

    Here we have the full recital given by Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar on May 27, 1988 at radio France. First he plays a long improvisation on the raag Purya Kalyan following the classic development in three parts: alap, jor, jala and a conclusion with the packawaj. Then he concludes the performance with the raag Lalit only in alap.

    Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar: rudra veena
    Mohin Bahauddin Dagar : tanpura
    Philippe Bruguiere : tanpura
    Pandit Shrikant Mishra : packawaj

    raag Puriya Kalyan:
    -alap (slow tempo without rhythm)
    -jor (slow tempo with rhythm)
    -jala (fast tempo with rhythm)
    -chautaal (12 bits rhythm with percussion/packawaj)

    Following the preview post of the solo recital by Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar here is a performance in duo (jugalbandi) by the two sons of Ustad Ziaudin Khan Dagar: Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar (1929 - 1990) and Ustad Zia Fariduddin Dagar (1932 - 2013). The first is the famous Binkar (rudra veena player), the second is a renowned vocalist as important as the senior Dagar brothers in the representation of the Dagar style of Dhrupad. The jugalbandi between voice and instrument is very rare and the ones made by those two brothers are absolutely incredible in the fact that they represents perfectly the strong link between the voice and the instrument. In his playing Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar have always wanted to be as close as possible to the voice. he used to say: « voice is king, instrument is minister ».

    This performance of the raag Chandrakauns, a late evening composition have been recorded in Amsterdam in 1985 and have been briefly published on cd by the Dagar Family.
    The development of this raga is done in the tradition with an alap, jor and jala followed by a composition played in Dhamar (12 bits) with the Packawaj.

    The Swedish label « country & eastern » have published two cd’s of jugalbandi by the two Dagar Brothers presented here, they are worthy of interest because they are actually the only documents commercially available in this style of Dhrupad.

    No Business Records will release five LPs and two CDs in the second half of August.
    For me the most anticipated release is Ton-Klami's CD. They did release two recordings in the 90s on Crown Records which are both OOP but worth seeking out.  No Business Records
    You might also take a look here. 

    For the upcoming Steve Lacy CD on Emanem Nick has already reproduced the label's info in the third comment. (somehow I published this post accidentally before it was ready)

    Roger Turner and Fred Van Hove - what a pair - this release scheduled for August 4 on Relative Pitch Records is very high on my want-list. And what a nice 1950s design and typography. Should be amazing...


    PAUL RUTHERFORD "in Backward Times" (1979-2007) Emanem 5045

    Four very different concert settings featuring sensational performances by trombonist PAUL RUTHERFORD:
    two festival solos - one from 1979 with electronics and the other from 2004 without;
    a 1988 duo with PAUL ROGERS (double bass) a few months before their ROGUES CD;
    and from 2007 a trio with VERYAN WESTON (piano) and MARCIO MATTOS (cello & electronics)
    - a very promising group, except that this turned out to be Rutherford's last public appearnance.
    All previously unissued. 76 minutes.

    The above release of Gruppo Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza is actually a reissue of a two CD + one DVD release from Italy's 'Die Schachtel' (2007),
    Ten years later we'll get 4 CDs or 5 LPs plus a DVD (and a 64p. booklet in LP format) or both.
    The DVD contains a German documentary (b/w) on the group. Filmed in 1967 the documentary is an unknown classic. Do they still produce films like this one?

    I've encountered the above release a month ago.
    It's Agustí Fernández, Peter Valsamis and two canadian musicians previously unknown to me (shame on me). Wonderful free improvisation with a saxophonist who according Stuart Broomer might have had Lee Konitz as a role-model. But Yves Charuest and bassist Nicolas Caloia are all their own on this highly recommended CD/download.

    The CD "Stir" was also the reason I discovered this 1988 Vancouver recording on  bandcamp - download only.


    Last year I got an email from ECM. They've 'found' a wealth of LPs from their early catalogue believed to be OOP, in their vaults. Immediately I've ordered about 100 items from several groups/musicians for the shop (Among the treasures was f.e. the first pressing of Jarrett's Köln Concert. I've ordered all remining stock - about a dozen LPs - sold after a few days).
    For myself I took 'Endgame' with John Stevens, Barry Guy, Trevor Watts and Howard Riley.
    But at home I discovered that the vinyl was beyond repair - so to say. I knew they had only 7 items of this release. Two were sold at our shop, one (mine) was defect and four remained - or were they gone?
    After a quick telephone call with ECM the rate of my heart's rythmn dropped considerably.
    A few days later I went to ECM's headquarter at the outskirts of Munich. After climbing to the first floor I met Steve Lake. Among other things I asked him wether he's producing "something" new.
    He mentioned a Roscoe Mitchell Nonet (or tentet..) - and here it is.
    Already on my list for >Best of 2017<.

    Marching Song vol. 1 + 2 are a classic of British creative Jazz from the 1960s. This three CD box-set not only offers remastered versions of the two LPs but also sextet/quartet renderings of some themes of the greater line-up.
    From 1966 and 1970 with Surman (sextet only) and Mike Osborne. Also added a rare 7" with Norma Winstone and the Concert Band. Includes a very informative booklet.

    As the sub-title suggests 'Cappuccini Klang 2' is the previously unreleased second part of a 1992 recording session. It was offered as download only on bandcamp somewhat unnoticed in 2013.
    The original CD was edited by Splasc(H) Records which - BTW - is active again.

    Some of the above mentioned recordings are not 'Upcoming + Recent' releases. But I do not care as long as the music is as original and revelatory as on the double CD "Retrospective" by the Al Neil Trio.
    Al Neil was unknown to me before Nick posted Neil's solo LP on this blog.
    Many words but only one necessary step > Get it! Get It! as long as the one time pressing lasts.
    My highest recommendation.

  • 08/10/17--01:20: Gil Mellé - Waterbirds 1970
  • Gil Mellé is famous for is late 50’s recordings on Blue Note and later for his superbe Tome VI that includes electronic processing over acoustic instruments. This one have been reissued in Japan some years ago and still can be found. From the start of the seventies Mellé will concentrate on compositions for movie or television. His soundtrack for « The Andromeda Strain » is considered as a landmark music in the field of electronic. Here is « Waterbirds » that is probably his last jazz album. In fact this lp is a compilation of themes composed between 1969 to 1970 for various télé series.

    A1 Waterbirds (Pt. 1) 7:37
    A2 Waterbirds (Pt. 2) 6:34
    A3 Walkin' Down The Gloomy Streets...Alone...Broke...Depressed...Gonna Kill Myself Blues 4:55
    AA4 Little Big Horn 9:24
    AA5 The Love Song 1:28
    AA6 My Sweet Charlie 6:34
    AA7 Charlie Chaplin 4:10

    Bass [Fender] – Dave Parlato (tracks: A2, A3, AA4 to AA7)
    Composed By, Arranged By, Conducted By, Conductor, Soprano Saxophone, Other [Special Electronic Musical Instruments] – Gil Mellé
    Drums – Fred C. Stofflet
    Guitar – Art Johnson (tracks: A2, A3, A5), Joe Cinderella (tracks: A1)
    Piano [Fender] – Pete Robinson (tracks: AA4, AA6, AA7)

    This album is superbe and show the strong ability of Mellé as a composer. The listen gives a unified feeling despite the fact that each title have been composed independently from the rest.
    I have remastered and edited this album from a mp3 version.

    This lp has been edited for the first time under the reference:
    Nocturne Nrs 702
    and have been reissued by Jazz Chronicles in 1977 under the reference Jcs 702

    Similarly to Karel Krautgarter a decade earlier (unfortunately not very well documented on records), Milan Svoboda was relatively interesting presence in a field of big band jazz in former Czechoslovakia during late 70's and early 80's. Born 1951, composer, pianist and graduatee of the Organ class at Prague Conservatory (and a cousin of saxophonist Jiří Stivín), he started first big band in 1974 with his colleagues from jazz rock area on purely enthusiast base. During the next few years, Prague Big Band established itself as main attraction on Czech big band scene, aside of long-standing names as Czechoslovak Radio Jazz Orchestra and Gustav Brom Big Band.
    First PBB album "Portarit" was released in 1978, followed by "Reminiscences" in 1980, with leader's compositions exclusively. Last album of original PBB is "Poste Restante" from 1982, reissued on CD by German label Aurophon in 1994. CD of "Reminiscences" was issued by former label Supraphon in 1995, but is OOP for long time now. This rip comes from CD release, while I was trying to enhance the sound slightly and to repair huge bug in the beginning of first track. In the group line-up, Svoboda is credited as leader only, but he plays also piano on track 3 at least. Overall sound is a bit fusion tinged, with occasional use of electric keyboards and bass guitar.

    Live footage of Prague Big Band from 1980

    Since early 80's, Svoboda leads also his own small groups, mainly quartet sized. During 1984 he studied at Berklee College of Music, where he recorded live album with international big band, consisted of his College schoolmates. Back at home, he did one album of Czech-Polish Big Band, released as Nr.5 in "Interjazz" Supraphon series, and in 1990 he started other big band named Kontraband, with mainly younger jazz players. Aside of his other musical activities, Svoboda leads new version of Prague Big Band (sometimes presented as Milan Svoboda Big Band) since 1995 until now.

    To introduce this post, a small note intended for those who are only able to bring criticism but nothing more, you are not obliged to download content if for some reason you do not like it. 

    Here is a rarity.

    Douglas Ewart is one important member of the AACM since the early seventies. He have played with almost all the musicians of this association and you can find him on records by George Lewis, Muhal Richard Abrams or Anthony Braxton to name a few.
    In the early eighties Ewart started is own record company: Arawak and the two first releases were tapes. Here is the first one probably recorded in 1985.

    Douglas Ewart b-flat bass clarinet, contrabass b-flat clarinet, b-flat soprano clarinet, endblown flute (on Jamaican bamboo)
    Edward Wilkerson b flat soprano clarinet (not on whale song)
    Mwata Bowden e-flat soprano clarinet, contra alto clarinet, e-flat sopranino clarinet, b-flat sopranino clarinet
    J.D. Parran contra alto clarinet, e-flat alto clarinet (only on whale song and red hills)

    1. ofo
    2. whale song
    3. red hills
    4. Jamaican bamboo

    Instruments are listed in the order they are played.

    The music is deeply soulful and spiritual. The meaning of the title is in relation with Martin Luther King’s speech pronounced on August 28, 1963. Here are the words:
    « I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaves owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. »

    With the « Invention Clarinet Choir » Douglas Ewart have made a second record:
    It seems that Mr Ewart still have some copies of this cd, that includes more guiding lights of the AACM.

    …and for those who still understand that it is important to pay for getting music, for the present of the musicians and the future of the culture you can purchase two recent releases featuring Douglas Ewart, both are great:
