    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 ...

  • 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.

    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.

    In the early days of this blog, Sotise posted a superbe album from L.D Levy who is not the most popular jazz musician… On this lp that you can find here
    he was teaming with Richard Davis that in the opposite needs no introduction.
    Eleven years after here is the second chapter in the rediscovery process of L.D Levy’s music.
    Those two cd self produced are obviously his last records.
    Like in his preview recording chamber jazz and contemporary classical are strong influences.

    1. "hay que caminar I"   34:26
    2. "hay que caminar II"  26:52

    Track 1 recorded at Fruits de Mhère in Brassy, France in August 2004.
    Track 2 recorded in Vandoeuvre, France in May 2007.

    "Hay que caminar" is a duo project of L.-M. Marion with the dancer Aurore Gruel.
    At least on track 1 you can hear Gruel's movements with headphones.
    Track 2 seems to be without a dancer.

    Here's a bit for Xmass - but please do not 'open' before tomorrow ;-)
    "Farbspiele" is "colour play" in English whereas "Versuch 2, einem Traum die Wahrheit zu verschweigen" means "second try to hide the truth from the dream". ("verschweigen" means "to keep/remain silent")

    3. Divana (Joos)  10:15
    4. Versuch 2, einem Traum die Wahrheit zu verschweigen (Konrad) 10:31

    Performed live in 1978

    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.
