    Coltrane gets an A for adventurousness but I don't always find the results satisfying as a listening experience. Maybe that's why I've become more of a Sonny Rollins fan over the years.

    This was stunning - some incredible performances - standout for me was John Tchicai. Such a smart decision to keep the camera on him even when he wasn’t playing- you could really see how he was getting into the music. Damn this was good!

    For those who worship Trane, there's always someone who takes it to another level

    Not really a fan of this style but needed a break from hard rock. Just heard, ...Shirley Bassey..."Born To Sing The Blues." It's a jazz album. Big band, sultry voice. Wonderful.

    Digging':

    - Zeuhl Jazz by Sonata Islands Kommandoh.


    - https://sonataislands.bandcamp.com/album/zeuhl-jazz

    This is nice!!


    - Angela by Caixa Cubo.


    https://caixacubo.bandcamp.com/album/angela

    "Angela", an improvisation that became the title track, reflects the spontaneity of the session and indicates the aesthetic that ended up permeating the entire project: a dialogue between electric Brazilian sounds from the 70s, with groups like Azymuth in mind, and contemporary beats by Yussef Kamaal and the likes, among other references."


    - Points on an Infinite Line by Dan Rosenboom.

    Coming soon to the house of every self-respecting Brit jazz/fusion buff (with sufficient funds and undiminished appetite for physical goodies):

    Barbara Thompson - Live at the BBC [Repertoire Records]



    * 14 CD set containing 27 complete radio programmes constituting 14 hours of music

    * Over 100 remastered and restored tracks from 1969-1990 together for the first time on one release

    * Featuring contributions from many legends of British jazz including Jack Bruce, Jon Hiseman, Don Rendell, Harry Beckett, Kenny Wheeler, Henry Lowther, Ian Carr, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Gary Husband, Frank Ricotti and Chris Spedding

    This previously hidden treasure trove of Barbara Thompson recordings amounts to 14 CDs containing 27 complete radio programmes recorded and broadcast by the BBC over a period of 21 years. Many come from Barbara’s own, tapes, preserved by her husband, legendary drummer Jon Hiseman, in their archive at Temple Music, while others have been gathered from private collections across Britain and Europe.

    The material ranges from a live concert by the New Jazz Orchestra, introduced by Humphrey Lyttelton, in February 1969 to a set by Paraphernalia, featuring Jon Hiseman and keyboard player Peter Lemer, dating from June 1990. Along the way are such rarities as: a set of compositions by Mike Taylor, broadcast in 1969 as a tribute following his then-recent death; Improvisations for Octet and Strings (1970); Five Movements for Jazz Ensemble (1971), conducted by Neil Ardley and introduced by Ian Carr; several broadcasts from the mid-1970s by Jubiaba; and many sets by Paraphernalia in its various forms including a complete concert broadcast live from Holland Park, mastered to the highest level, with extensive liner notes by celebrated jazz critic, broadcaster and saxophonist Dave Gelly MBE.

    And now something from the contemporary scene. Can you imagine Kew.Rhone. ramming into Handel’s "Dixit Dominus" accompanied by Albert Ayler's marching band with gospel singers?

    If not, here's a live recording of the accident:

    Kaja Draksler Octet - Out for Stars (2020)

    That is truly tragic - he was all about music - must be incredibly frustrating.

    God, what a great sound Peacock had. This reminds me that it's been too long since I've listened to Ornette's In All Languages recording. I think I'll rectify that this weekend. Thanks for sharing!

    Happy with what I have to be happy with.
