    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 ...

  • 07/31/15--09:01: Requests
  • 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.

  • 02/14/18--04:17: A painter named Marion Brown
  • One of the most subtle saxophonists of his generation, Marion Brown was also a painter, but that is less well known. There is almost no information on this subject or even representation of his paintings. Recently for a radio program devoted to jazz and visual art, I met the lucky owner of a painting by Marion Brown, here is the reproduction.

    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.

    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.
