    Have you received yours yet, Munster? - mine popped through my letterbox this morning (accompanied by the new Molly Tuttle album!), & I'm just listening through for the first time now.

    First impressions - a fantastic recording of this band! Green & Orange Night Park is an initial standout for me, although the band going full tilt on the version of Thoughts to Geoff during the later session are a *monster*!

    The earlier session is less tonally exploratory, but has an extraordinary meditative, almost uncanny, atmosphere.

    Yes, mine arrived today too and initial impressions are very favourable. I will have to listen far more closely tonight but I am looking forward to hearing how drummer Trevor Tomkins combines with the others. I think he is one of the better drummers of that period (and there was no shortage of good drummers around then). That combination of Charig, Dean and Evans was great too. They seemed to move in a pack from one recording session to another!

    Today is International Jazz Day, apparently, and there's a free concert webcast at 5PM on jazzday.com, https://www.youtube.com/intljazzday and other sites. Great lineup including bassists Linda Oh (Australia), James Genus and Marcus Miller; percussionist Pedrito Martinez (Cuba); saxophonists David Sanborn and Ravi Coltrane; trumpeters Randy Brecker and Jeremy Pelt; pianists John Beasley (Musical Director), Hiromi (Japan) and Joey Alexander (Indonesia); drummers Terri Lyne Carrington and Brian Blade, and vocalists Gregory Porter, Jose James, Shemekia Copeland and Lizz Wright, among others.

    The New Jazz Orchestra’s hard to find album “Western Union London 1965” is now available on vinyl via Bandcamp and a Portuguese outlet called Mad About Records.

    Also on Bandcamp, British Progressive Jazz is set to release Graham Collier’s 1968 Hamburg concert on CD, which should be excellent. This will apparently be a limited edition of 500, but perhaps this number should be taken with a pinch of salt, so to speak; the Keith Tippett CD from BPJ, “How Long This Time?”, was also meant to be a limited edition and yet, despite claims a few weeks ago that it was “sold out”, at least 80 CD have reappeared for sale on the site.

    A new Collier CD has just been released on the Fat Albert’s Bag label, called “Workpoints: Transmissions 1968”. A warning, though, that the sound is appalling. The band on this album, recorded for a BBC show, is the same as the one that appears on Cuneiform’s “Workpoints” double CD from 2005. The sound quality on the Cuneiform release, which features concerts from 1968 and 1975, is superb and if you have that CD then the latest release on Fat Albert’s Bag is best avoided.

    I've listened to this album a fair bit over the last fortnight - & the more I listen, the better I think it is!

    What do you think, Munster?

    Totally agree! I am still enjoying it very much. It seems far looser than either “You Are Here … I Am There” and “Dedicated To You, But You Weren’t Listening” but is just as good. The two versions of Thoughts To Geoff with different drummers are perhaps the high points for me. It may also be my imagination but the individual players' parts seem to stand out more in "How Long This Time" than they do in the two officially released albums.

    Listening to these three albums also got me playing some other Tippett. “Frames” is great and very similar in structure to Centipede’s “Septober Energy” (four side-long pieces with a mix of styles). Ogun is reissuing some of Tippett’s back catalogue via Bandcamp and there is some excellent stuff there.

    Mmmhhh!!!... Would love to own a copy of that KTG recording, but punitive import tax will most likely make it impossible. I'll see with my record peddler if he's got solutions.

    As for Charig Dean & Evans, I used to call them the Tippett Boys or Tippett Army

    TBH, not really interested by early NJO stuff. and I got what I need of their later stuff (69/70)

    Thanks for the feedback on the Collier release. I'll stay content with Steve's Workpoint double disc version.
    I'll see about the Hamburg concert, though.

    How Long This Time is gorgeous! - & also agree about the two versions of Geoff (as it were) - it's astonishing to think just how rapidly the music was evolving (as, indeed, it did with the Softs at the same time).

    Trane - as you may recall, I'm over in Leuven for the VdGG gig - if you'd like, I could order any of the cds you're interested in, & bring them with me. PM me if you're interested...

    Bought this today:

    https://selenesaint-aime.bandcamp.com/album/potomitan


    A really beautiful mix of jazz, Caribbean music and chamber music. There is even an adaption of a Sibelius tune on there. Very recommended.

    Ooo. I hope there will be a CD version available.
    Please don't ask questions, just use google.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    I'm only here to reglaze my bathtub.

    This is stunning almost beyond belief - puts Pete Townsend to shame. I really had no idea he went this far out in his performances.
