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.

Jani Christou was born at Heliopolis, N.E. of Cairo on January 9th, 1926, of Greek parents. He was educated at the English School in Alexandria, and began composing at an early age. In 1945 he travelled to England to study formal logic and philosophy at Kingās College, Cambridge under Ludwig Wittgenstein and Bertrand Russell (he attained an MA in philosophy in 1948). At the same time he studied music privately with H. F. Redlich, the distinguished musicologist and pupil of Alban Berg, and in 1949 travelled to Rome to study orchestration with F. Lavagnino. He also travelled widely in Europe, culminating for a short period in Zurich, where he met and attended lectures in psychology with Carl Jung....
Sadly the website dedicated to Jani Christou does not exist anymore.
But for those who want to know more the 'web-archive' has kept the website from complete oblivion.
Bought this LP while on vacation with my family in Greece. Strolling through Athens I discovered a vinyl shop. While browsing through the inventory I didn't find anything which sparked me.
Then I asked for Xenakis, Christou...and here it was behind the cashier - albeit quite expensive.
I already wanted to turn away when surprisingly my family urged me three times to buy this LP.
Astonished and a bit perplexed I obeyed to their wish. It turned out that it was and still is to my own best.

All tracks are compositions ordered by the Süddeutsche Rundfunk to feature Joos and Konrad as composers and to give them the opportunity to perform with larger ensembles.
- on tracks 1 + 2 the Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra and on tracks 3 + 4 the Erwin Lehn Orchestra, (which was the SDR's radio jazz orchestra at that time and included a lot of brilliant jazz musicians) - therefore they were also able to perform (besides their usual radio entertainment music business) in more avantgardistic contexts.
