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.
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.
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.
Howard Riley, piano, electronics
Barry Guy, double bass, electronics
Tony Oxley, drums, percussion, electronics

Underwhich Audiographic Series – No. 18
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.
Here is a rarity.
