    Sadly, Lou Gare left us on 6th October 2017.  He was a true gentleman.

    Years ago he was kind enough to send me this cassette covering the years between 1965 and 1985.

    He was a woefully under-recorded saxophonist and consequently didn't receive the recognition he deserved.  Although, in his humility, I suspect he didn't mind that too much.

    One of the many collaborations between Hamid Drake and european musicians. This time Drake plays with Italian vibist Pasquale Mirra who have recorded more in various projects than under is own leadership. You can find him on Butch Morris Conduction® / Induction. (Rai Trade) It doesn’t mean that Mirra is an avant garde player. In fact this set is more inside and relaxed than outside and complicated. Original tracks and covers are in the program.

    01/ Togo, 02/ Brown Rice, 03/ Afro-Blue, 04/ Piacevoli Pensieri, 05/ Mirra Solo, 06/ Water, 07/ Ishmael, 08/ Encore.

    Here's an update of a post originally published back in 2008, for two reasons basically. First, there was a request for a repost, and secondly, it provides an opportunity to commemorate John Jack, who was the proprietor of the Cadillac label which released this record back in 1983.

    An obituary can be found here:

    The rest of the post is as it was.

    The Jazz Doctors - 'Intensive Care'
    The Jazz Doctors: -
    Frank Lowe - saxophone
    Billy Bang - violin
    Dennis Charles - drums
    Raphael Garrett - bass

    I think they only made one record (as The Jazz Doctors), although I have 2 live tapes and there might be more ?...?

    Intensive Care was made for John Jack's Cadillac Records in the UK in the second half of 1983.
    Anecdotally, only a few weeks after Bang & Dennis Charles had a punch-up on the bandstand in Germany, resulting in Charles losing a tooth..

    The tunes on this are written by Frank Lowe (x2)
    Butch Morris
    Rashied Ali
    Billy Bang
    Jackie McLean
    Ornette Coleman

    I've always loved the 2nd side - but now that I listen to it again, the 1st side's not too bad either<

    Worth adding is that the Cadillac label is well worth a visit, at

    The Ogun label is there too, Cadillac releases include some original vinyl pressings still available (as detailed by Wallofsound elsewhere)as well as CDs on both Cadillac and other distributed labels.

    David Murray, Mike Osborne, Joe Harriott, Louis Moholo, Elton Dean, Chris McGregor etc etc etc

    John & Hazel have been supporting this music for longer than many of us have been walking the planet. I'd urge support for them, and the acquisition of some great music in the process.

    sermon endeth here - enjoy the Jazz Doctors."

    Here is a remastered version of this concert previously posted in the early days of « IS » and updated by Kinabalu in March 2016. Sound is so important for me that when I downloaded the original file I was so disappointed by the sound quality that I deleted it immediately. Some years after my interest in the music of Don Cherry and particularly in this period of his music became stronger than my reluctance about poor sound quality and I downloaded it again but the sound haven’t changed… So I thought that the best way was trying to remaster it and it is this result that I present today. The original source is probably an audience recording and in many moments the sound of each players is not clear, particularly when the level of the percussions is high. Johny Dyani is playing with a level of intensity that is totally incredible and one of my purpose was to make is sound more clear. But you can’t recreate what is not in the source and the remastering of a poor source is always a question of point of view. Someone else could choose a different way of sound engineering. If you want you can compare with the original file, still available and if someone else want to try another remastering… why not?

    Last but not least Makaya Ntchoko is credited as the drummer of the band but I’m almost sure that it is not him who is playing but Okay Temiz. Two reasons makes me think this way, first when you listen carefully the use of percussions is totally similar to Temiz’s style and this concert comes from the famous and under recorded period when Cherry had his trio with Dyani and Temiz.

    In my opinion it is the best record of Okay Temiz due to the fact that the music doesn’t fall too much in some kind of « world cliché ». The reason of this successful cross-cultural meeting is perhaps because it have been recorded live.

    Side a:
    -Introduction, Batum, Ulah- Balkan.
    Side b:
    -Döktür, Kürt Havasi, Madimak, Üsküdar, Anadol Havasi, Trabzon Karsilamasi, Laz Havasi.

    -bass: Björn Alke
    -Clarinet: Saffet Gündeger
    -Drums, percussions: Okay Temiz

    All tracks except A1 & A2 are traditional Turkish folk music.
    All tracks recorded March 25, 1974 in Stockholm except A1 recorded March 6, 1974 in Stockholm.

    info are very few about Phil Musra, what I found is from cliffordallen blog

    "...Philip Musra, a reedman and composer living in Los Angeles. He’s not a figure who’s well-known in the jazz (or even avant-garde) community, though his work in the 1970s with his brother, multi-instrumentalist Michael Cosmic, Turkish-born drummer Huseyin Ertunc, and bassist-composer John Jamyll Jones is the stuff of curiosity and possibly legend. Part of what has made their music - available on a small scattering of privately-pressed LPs - so interesting is that it does not sound like anything else. I recently characterized the trio music (without Jones) as something like a collision between the AACM and Alan Sondheim’s Ritual 770 or another, similar wild-and-woolly artists’ collective. The group was based in Boston at the time and also worked with pianist Gene Ashton (now known as Cooper-Moore) and poet-vocalist Ntozake Shange, among others. Apparently Musra and Cosmic also spent time in Chicago studying with AACM musicians. Until recently, not much was known about their concurrent and subsequent activities........Shimmering percussion dense but hanging in midair, maniacal insistence on mini-organ chords or frantic arpeggios on a glockenspiel, and intertwining flutes and saxophones are the linguistic building blocks, and the dialect is unlike anything I had previously experienced.

    ... Though Musra has assembled CD-Rs of archival material to almost no distribution over the past few years, his visible output has generally remained known only to connoisseurs of rare records from a bygone era. That is until now, as what is officially his second LP as a leader in over 35 years has been released in a limited edition via the Sagittarius A-Star label. The Creator is So Far Out takes its title from a composition that also appeared on his 1974 Creator Spaces LP (Intex) as well as on the present album. Here, he's joined by drummer Don Hooker, percussionist Steven McGill and pianist Walter Barrilleaux on two sidelong originals.
    The core trio of Musra, Hooker and McGill has been together since last year, making live appearances on the West Coast (most often at the Heartbeat House in LA) and cutting some YouTube videos that have yet to go viral. As one would hope, there is a rather profound difference between this trio and what came before. Rather than the slightly-unhinged democracy of his 1970s free unit with Cosmic, Musra stretches out his husky and somewhat minimalist riff on Newk over dry, regular conga and trap set patterns on the lyrical, loving ode Yvonne, peppered with occasional throaty wails. The title track is taken in a bluesy direction, Barrilleaux laying down churchy chords around Hooker's loose lope and Musra's slightly wandering declarations. McGill's brief, glassy vibraphone is used as a marker between tenor and soprano solos, on which the leader's pinched tone contrasts curiously with the rhythm section's chunky groove. Boxy electric piano and flute shortly make a strange pair, as Musra runs through his arsenal. There's always been an outsider quality to Musra's music, and thirty-odd years ago that unbridled and sometimes unfocused energy probably contributed to his and his compatriots' unknown status. Now, of course, that naturalness is something many musicians work to achieve, and if Musra's music is a little more reigned in today, it's not without a folksy honesty that makes The Creator is So Far Out a charmingly humanist statement."
