    This blog is now in its sixth year, started back in February 2007 by our correspondent from down under. Bundles of people have contributed over the years, some gone, other holding on and yet others joining recently and putting their distinctive mark on the contents and direction of the blog. Currently we have about four active posters and some generous supporters, judging from inputs over the last month, but we're always willing to recruit more. Potential authors can get in touch with us c/o our Blogger email addresses. We've had contributors from three continents, with a preponderance of Europeans overall.

    The emphasis has been on the free/improv/experimental side of jazz, but with excursions into contemporary and classical music, from Europe and beyond. There are no rules, however; the blog is whatever the posters make of it, and we'd like to keep it that way. We focus on posting out of print material with the objective of drawing attention to music which otherwise might have remained out of mind and out of sight. Due to spam and ad hominem attacks, we 've had to institute a moderator system, so posts may not appear right away, but they will be published.

    We have retired the old general comments section as it was getting long and unwieldy, but it's still visible for those who want to check back. Instead, three separate sections for contributions, requests and general comments have been created which hopefully will make it all a bit more manageable.

    With these few words, heading on ...

    I've deleted the previous 'Requests' post as it was becoming a bit unwieldy.

    Here is one record by one of the most unknown hero of the south African jazz. Tete Mbambisa has been considered as a major reference by musicians like Johnny Dyani or Dudu Pukwana. But Mbambisa have recorded only few records, less than ten for a man who is more than 80 years old. Here we have some very beautiful cape jazz, relaxed music with positive vibrations. Some of the musicians on this session can also be found on some records by Dollar Brand recorded and published by the same label like « Cape Town Fringe » or « Mannenberg Is Where It’s Happening ».

    • Trane Ride - Past Time - Winter time - Irene

    Bass: Zulu Bidi
    Drums: Monty Weber
    Piano/composition: Tete Mbambisa
    Tenor Sax/Flute: Basil Coetzee

    The Sun ml4258 published in 1979

    Recently the label Matsuli Music have reissued the first session by Mbambisa under the name « The Soul Jazzmen »

    In 2012 independent producer Jonhattan Eato have recorded and published a superbe solo piano by Tete Mbambisa that can be found here

    Last but not least: a recent recording by Tete with British musicians have been published in south Africa in the end of 2017 in a very limited quantity, it will probably be issued in the world very soon. In preparation is also the first time issue of an unreleased session from 1978.

  • 01/12/18--22:20: EVERYMAN BAND (ECM 1982)

  • Here is first recording published by Maestro David Torn. Unlike second Everyman Band album "Without Warning", it was never released as CD nor digitally yet for whatever reason. The debut of this American quartet is much wilder than second album, but Torn's atmospheric guitar explorations are already there. He went on to record further ECM albums under his own name, "Best Laid Plans" (1985, duo with percussionist Geoffrey Gordon) and crimsonish "Cloud About Mercury" (1987, with Mark Isham on trumpet, Tony Levin on bass and stick and Bill Bruford on drums), and as a member of Jan Garbarek Group (It's OK To Listen To The Gray Voice, 1985). Torn returned to ECM in 2oo7 with his fantastic band Prezens. All Fogel, Yaw and Suchorsky were members of Lou Reed band.
    I am sharing this album as clean vinyl rip, each side of the LP is one track. Cover scans are included.

    The leaders of this album were completely unknown to before I discovered this LP.
    Of course the musicians in the rhythm-section are not totally unknown...

    Since I discovered Swiss saxophonist Urs Blöchlinger I’ve been immediately interested by his music. His ability in improvisation and his knowledge and mastery of several styles of music including contemporary but also European tradition and his way to integrate those elements in his music is simply amazing. So no surprise that after this discovery of a true genius I wanted to get more of his discography as a leader but also as a side man. This album is one of those that I picked up during my trip in his too short career. On this record Blöchlinger share the stage with Jacques Demierre and Olivier Magnenat. Demierre have an important discography and have played with musicians like Barry Guy, Isabelle Duthoit, Urs Leimgruber to name a few. Swiss bassist Olivier Magnenat have unfortunately a smaller discography and mostly recorded with Swiss musicians like François Chevrolet or Peter Schärli.
    This is a live recording based on elaborate compositions where ostinatos are mixed with introspectives and more fiery moments.

    The only recommandation that I can give you is to search in this blog where you can find almost all of Blöchlinger’s discography recently updated by Mew23. All of his records available here are superbes. Beside his interest in jazz, contemporary music and European tradition, Blöchlinger was also interested in rock. He shared the stage and the studio with « No Secret In The Family » and few month before his death he was member of an incredible band called « Heilige Bimbam » that mixed, free, funk and rock in a complete unique style, others members of « heilige Bimbam » included musicians of « No Secret In The Family » but also Urs Voerkel, another musician who left us too fast.
