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 ...
Requests, broken links, re-ups and related topics go here. It may be easier for admins to be attentive to these topics if they are put here and not under the individual posts. There's no guarantee that we may be able to respond to everything, but we'll give it a try.
I've deleted the previous 'Requests' post as it was becoming a bit unwieldy.
I shall start the requests with the last one from the previous thread.
Anything our readers and followers would like to contribute goes here. That may include recommendations, reviews, recordings, you name it.
When I found this, my eyes went WOW! I can't believe it! This is taken from a concert at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1968. The sextet has the following line-up:
Mike Osborne - alto
John Surman - baritone
Malcolm Griffiths - trombone
Mike Westbrook - piano
Harry Miller - bass
Alan Jackson - drums
This concert features the line-up at about the time of the first Concert Band albums on Deram from 1967 onwards to about 1970. I can't identify the tunes here - two slabs at about 20 minutes each - but I'll have a listen to the afore-mentioned albums and see if I can get any further. In the middle of the first piece, Surman slips into "The Girl from Ipanema" of all things (which is on Release) and there are some thematic passages that do sound like marching songs. To be verified if possible.
Make this an essential listening if you're into golden age British Jazz. And I mean essential!

I would like to alert our followers.
There a Kickstarter campaign about reissueing this elusive LP.
The Contemporary Jazz Quintet should be famous enough for their collaboration with Sunny Murray on the album "Action". (available on CD through SteepleChase).
I've joined the party some minutes ago...about 1800 DKK are missing for a start.
Here's the link to the website:

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.

ps. Lovely stuff from a couple of years ago
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)
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 http://www.cadillacjazz.co.uk/
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."
Boy Raaymakers, trumpet, bugle
Peter Van der Locht, alto saxophone
Robert Scholer, bass

Heres something that has been requested repeatedly in the comments on Lacy posts ( especially by brent/ 1001)
One of Lacy’s finest from the period, with masters like Togashi and Yoshizawa on board it couldn’t be otherwise.
