    Alexander von Schlippenbach Quartet (Alex von Schlippenbach: piano, Evan Parker: saxophones, Reggie Workman: bass, Paul Lytton: drums) Recorded live at the Hill Auditorium at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA July 16, 1998. This concert was presented by The National Black Arts Festival as part of the (Re)soundings series, and was curated by Dwight Andrews and Brad Kendrick. Quite sure there were others involved at a high level, but it's been too long for me to remember.

     Here's a new edition of R+UR
    I would like to point the headlights on two new LPs which were released these days.
    The first is a reissue from David Toop's Quartz Publications. Originally issued in 1980 and brought back by the Australian label Black Truffle.
    (We've posted it here some time ago but I've deleted the links some month ago when I got news about this welcome re-edition)

     The second LP contains previously unreleased music from Toop and his long-time partner Paul Burwell. Here the Belgian label Sub Rosa along with Logos Foundation is in charge.
    Take a look > Sub Rosa

    The third release I would like to alert you is due in March on Dave Holland's label Dare2 Records.

    It will be a CD with Holland himself along Evan Parker, Craig Taborn and Ches Smith.
    Exciting news for me.
    Got the info from here.

    And last but not least there's a scheduled CD on Relative Pitch Records.
    No definite date yet but I'm looking forward to this recording especially for it includes one of my favourite drummer/musician: Tony Oxley. IMO he's certainly underrepresented on LP/CD/MC.

    Arthur Jarvinen – glockenspiel, chromatic harmonica, analogue electronics
    Sylvie Courvoisier – piano, prepared piano
    Tony Oxley – percussion
    Pat Thomas – cassette player, electronics, electric keyboard
    Miroslav Tadic´ – guitars
    Walter Quintus – real time processing, conducting
    Bill Laswell – bass, field recordings, electronics
    Mark Nauseef – percussion, electronics

    To add to Ernst's post - there are two Sabu Toyozumi CD releases

    Mui Shizen, recordings from John's 2013 Japan tour with Sabu, on Vivid Sound Corporation.


    As If Once More, recorded live with Claudia Cervenca at Schnittpunkte der Musik - Limmitationes Festival, Heiligenkreuz im Lafnitztal, Austria, in 2015, available direct from Klopotec

    This concert was the third part of a long evening celebration of the 50th A.A.C.M anniversary.
    The first band was under the direction of Henry Threadgill, the second was a powerful duo Roscoe Mitchell/Mike Reed and this last performance was the ultimate version of the golden quartet. This last performance was simply amazing.

    The jazz of Eastern countries is not very represented here, so I decided to start a trip to the east that will take us to ...
    Our first step takes us to Poland to rediscover the Yass scene which lasted almost a decade and which was very interesting but surprisingly remained almost completely unknown outside Polish borders.
    If you want to know more about this scene:
    In fact, most of the records in this scene are hard to find today.
    Let's start with one of the iconic bands of this scene: Łoskot and their debut album. The only two times I've seen this disc including the time I bought it, it was a promo copy without cover and obviously distributed with a jazz magazine, yet discogs announces a commercially distributed disc but that I've never seen.

    Łoskot Koncert W Mózgu

    -Szymon Rogliński: didgeridoo
    -Olo Walicki: double bass
    -Jacek Olter: drums
    -Jacek Majewski: percussions
    -Mikołaj Trzaska: saxophone

    Jacek Olter and Mikołaj Trzaska where also members of Miłość a band that will be featured here in a near future. Jacek Olter died in 2001 but Mikołaj Trzaska is now an important musician of the European free jazz scene.
    Last but not least Łoskot reunited in summer 2017, obviously any new recording is on the way but who knows…?

    1/ Your Lady, 2/ Radość Uzdrowienia, 3/ Sfinx, 4/ Chłopaki Na Damkach, 5/ Peace On Earth

    All compositions by Mikołaj Trzaska except « Your Lady » and "Peace On Earth " by John Coltrane.

    Recorded and published in 1995

    We got this vinyl-rip several month ago in the contributions section.
    I do not find the comment with the link anymore. So my apologies to the generous contributor.
    But thanks to corvimax I know now: it is Sven. Thank you Sven for this really special music!!

    The LP wasn't in a NM condition - so I've removed many louder clicks 'n' pops during the last three month.

    The music has a decidedly 1970s feel. But IMO it's really an independent statement. Not Rock, not Jazz and not Contemporary Classic either.  Somehow I remembered a famous advertisement from  ~1968 (here)  after listening again to the 'Circle of dreams'.

  • 03/16/18--03:46: Anatoly Vapirov - Invocation
  • The second step of our journey to the east will allow us to discover a record that should have been a classic, it's also the first time we talk about this musician here.
    Anatoly Vapirov has an important discography that includes many excellent records, unfortunately they are almost all self-produced and practically not distributed. This is unfortunate because this musician is in my opinion one of the most interesting actual saxophonist.

    A/ Invocation Of Spirit, B1/ Invocation Of Fire, B2/ Invocation Of Water.

    -Ivars Galenieks: bass on side a
    -Vladimir Volkov: bass on side b
    -Valentina Ponomareva: vocal on side a
    -Sergey Kuryokhin: piano & percussions on side a, piano prepared on side b
    -Alexander Alexandrov: bassoon on side b
    -Anatoly Vapirov: reeds 

    Side A recorded October 1983 in Novosibirsk 
    Side B recorded end of 1981 in Leningrad.

    cd rip from cdr reissued by Anatoly Vapirov himself on his own label ava.

    It’s impossible to talk about Russian jazz without talking about those three guys… Even if none of them were Russians, they were from Lithuania.
    Most of their recordings have been published by « Leo  records » but few of them appeared on the government label « Melodia ».

    -Vladimir Tarasov: percussions, drums, flute
    -Vyacheslav Ganelin: piano, keyboards, bugle, flute
    -Vladimir Čekasin: saxophone, trombone, flute, percussions, violin

    1/ Poi Segue part one, 2/ Poi Segue part two

    Recorded in 1981 in Vilnius

    Several lp editions have been published by Melodia in the U.S.S.R and also one American edition on the independent label « East Wind ». The Lithuanian label « Sonore Records » have reissued it on cd in 1995

    He can be considered the pioneer of free jazz in Romania, since the 80s he have recorded for Leo Records and then self-produced his music. His early albums have never been reissued and the most recent have never been distributed outside Romania, his work is quite difficult to access which is regrettable given his talent and originality.
    Here is what seems to be his first recording even if it has been published for the first time in cassette only in 1994 then reissued in cdr ten years later with a bonus track.
    This is a duet with the German clarinetist Hans Kumpf, which can also be found on the superb album « East West Creativ Combination » that have been posted on this blog many years ago by Owombat and updated by Corvimax:

    Hans Kumpf is also the founding member of Ak Musick an obscur group that made only one record, absolutely fantastic and recently reissued:

    1 First Time Together
    2 Transylvania On My Mind
    3 Etude (bonus track)
    4 Drug Ula Blues
    5 Blowin' With The Wind
    6 Chamber Mood
    7 August ’82
    8 Lazy Friday Afternoon
    9 Cry Of The Balkans
    10 Open End

    -Harry Tavitian: piano, shepherd flute, vocal
    -Hans Kumpf: clarinet

    Our trip in the East goes on with this saxophonist from Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina). But even if Vlatko Kučan have kept some connections with his native country, he lives in Germany since the seventies. Under his name he have made only one album that is presented here but he have played with many renowned musicians including Anthony Braxton, Steve Swallow, Lester Bowie, Carla Bley, Marion Brown  or Dieter Glawischnig to name a few. But Vlatko Kučan is also working as composer for theatre, movies and radio; his works includes also meeting between music and philosophy and poetry. Last but not least he have also studied psychoanalysis and he teach and practice musical therapy. Considering that, no surprise that his discography as a leader is so small.
