    pretty cool... were are they from (couldn't find them on RYM)? Ok, found Sweden on YT.
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    They are swedish but with a norwegian drummer.
    They were recorded in Norway by Jan-Erik Kongshaug of ECM fame, but released on a small and apparently rather obscure label 'Polar Music' and I'm not sure how many copies they printed in those days. Few.
    IF you are into vinyl: http://www.bokborsen.se/?issearch=1&...pring+Quintett

    And they never turned up on anybodies radar... dont know anybody who heard about them.
    I got a cassetetape from the guitarist Bjarne Roupe (Egba fame) in 1980, and he wasnt sure what would happen with the recording, and my cassette copy turned to salad. Then I found the LP 15 years ago second hand. And yesterday a friend helped me digitalizing the album.
    And I think everybody should hear it

    Thank you.

    Anyone who gets this type of laudatory remarks from George Russell immediately gets my full attention!

    I posted these videos in the "WTF Covers" thread, but maybe that's not the right audience, so I thought I'd post them here too. My friend (jazz pianist) Steve Million turned me on to this 20 year old kid who's a one-man Take 6 and latin-jazz band combined. I'm speechless!

    I like the first track on the album even more, but couldn't find it.

    My all time favorite of his.



    A friend pointed out that it sounds like a softcore porn soundtrack at times. He isn't wrong, but it sounds like a really, really GREAT softcore porn soundtrack.

    Jim Hall - Live: I used to have this on vinyl; just downloaded it from iTunes for $5. It seems they've now released 3 more albums worth of stuff from this date with the Canadian rhythm section of Don Thompson (bass) and Terry Clarke (drums). Unfortunately, that's $50 at iTunes. Apparently it's available as a physical product too (box set). This was a great interactive trio!

    I still have mine; it's from A&M's "Horizon" series, the label's brief mid-70s foray into jazz. A pretty terrific album.

    Quadraceratops--John Zorn et al. sort of groovy, and a bit progish in parts, but never tips totally over in that area, must be the Rhodes, still pretty good.

    Any Fats Waller fans? JSP has a Complete Recorded Works series totaling 25 CDs in six box sets. I just received two sets today.

    I like Waller and some of those guys form that era. A guy gave me a bunch from that era & still going thru them.

    I'm not a huge early jazz listener, but I love Fats! I'm really looking forward to digging into these sets.

    That it is, certainly one of Jim Hall's best. It's interesting that a bunch of other stuff from that engagement (I think it was a jazz club in Toronto) has surfaced after all of these years; like that Wes Montgomery in Indianapolis album that came out a year or two; it's like unearthing buried treasures! I'm going to have to acquire that live Hall boxset or at least download it at some point.

    Nice. Thanks for posting. Seeing Zorn's name I almost didn't bother.

    Horace Tapscott Quintet-The Giant Is Awakened has been reissued by International Phonograph, the folks who gave us Bill Dixon-Intents and Purposes,Julius Hemphill-Dogon A.D, John Carter/Bobby Bradford-Flight For Four, among other worthy titles.

    Tapscott's bands were out of the Los Angeles area,this band(1969) featured a young Arthur Blythe.A highly regarded record,briefly available in 1990 on Novus.

    Just found this in a baggy piled up in my living room. I was listening to three or four Blake
    albums a decade or more ago. Always dug his stuff. Blake's playing approach is the opposite
    of Michael Brecker or Chris Potter. He takes things at a slower, more meditative pace.



    Blake has a new CD being released this week.

    That's one of those cheapo public domain labels that doesn't pay any royalties or licensing fees.
    You may as well find some of those titles at the library and burn them yourself.

    Gunter Hampel's first date as a leader. From 1965.Perhaps trumpeter Manfred Schoof and pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach's first date as sidemen.In any event, a wonderful tune, with lots of solo space for all.The album is Heartplants.
