    The new album has got a different vibe, but I certainly wouldn't say it sounds like a different band.

    "Tanya", performed by Dexter Gordon (tenor), with Donald Byrd (trumpet) Art Taylor (drums) Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen (bass), & Kenny Drew (piano), from the lp One Flight Up.

    Another new discovery for me, I think this is stunning. Gordon's long improv is exquisite - & sounds like it kicks off by more or less quoting the opening notes of Coltrane's solo in "Blue Train". The rhythm section are totally locked in throughout. I also hear a real influence on Hugh Masekela's playing from Byrd's solo.

    Disappointed by the Lemmer Quintet, but loved the Dexter Gordon track (this is worthy of being on KOB) and the Vukan trio is even more up my alley; thx

    Well I did say almost. Obviously they didn't go black metal or rap or peruvian folk or anything like that, so it's still music that is in the same sports league, but all the energy and drive and 'mind expanding' qualities seem to have been put aside for this one (at least compared to the rest of their stuff).
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Free live early Tim Berne on Bandcamp if you want it. Not too far out there, like he can be at times.

    It's supposedly the first one in the whole series that would deliver Sam River's archival live sets. I am looking forward to it!

    One Flight Up has been among my favorite albums ever since it came out. The total assurance of the players, the laid-back groove throughout, and -- although you can't tell from the YouTube video -- it's one of the best-recorded jazz albums ever. Pedersen's bass has gut-rumbling sub-sonics, Gordon's sax has a 'bite' which is almost live, and Byrd's trumpet, though not his best playing, is miced up close and personal. Probably Francis Wolff's finest production.

    I thought I'd make myself a quick review of my favourite recordings on Clean Feed label that have been releasing some really great music for almost two decades. I got down to 21 titles by eliminating repeated artists, but I just cannot squeeze the final list any more.

    So here it is, ordered by the recording year, with my quick absurd associations attached to each entry:

    Eric Boeren 4tet - Song for Tracy the Turtle (2004) - free sublimed
    Otomo Yoshihide ONJQ w/ Mats Gustaffson - Live in Lisbon (2004) - back from lunch
    4 Corners - 4 Corners (2006) - Ken's groove
    Angles - Every Woman Is A Tree (2007) - Arab spring
    Carlos Bica - Materia Prima (2008) - Paris Texas
    Dual Identity - Dual Identity (2009) - moon in fusion
    Scott Fields - Moersbow / Ozzo (2009) - sense-in' noise
    Mostly Other People Do The Killing - Coimbra Concert (2010) - tongue in cheek
    Adam Lane's Full Throttle Orchestra - Live in Ljubljana (2012) - uncle Mingus
    Velkro - Don't Wait for the Revolution (2012) - movie jam
    Chicago Underground - Pharoah & the Underground: Spiral Mercury (2013) - lost in space
    Zanussi 5 - Live in Coimbra (2013) - back to Birdland
    Carate Urio Orchestra - Ljubljana (2015) - aviary
    Aalberg, Kullhammar & Zetterberg - Basement Sessions Vol. 4: Bali Tapes (2016) - temple jam
    Kaja Draksler - Gledalec (2016) - Art Baars
    Harris Eisenstadt's Canada Day - On Parade in Parede (2016) - abstract tale
    Honest John w/ Ab Baars - Treem (2016) - braxtoned
    Lama w/ Joachim Badenhorst - Metamorphosis (2016) - strange dream
    Daniel Levin - Live at Firehouse 12 (2016) - night watch
    Larry Ochs, Gerald Cleaver & Nels Cline - What Is To Be Done (2016) - cooking lava
    Selva ‎– Canícula Rosa (2018) - desert mirage

    And what are your favourite releases on this label?

    Jan Johansson was a true genius. One of my favorite albums.
    He made others with folksongs - the one with Russian folksongs is also good.

    Btw: His two sons keyboardist Jens & drummer Anders released in 1996 Heavy Machinery with Allan Holdsworth.

    Clean Feed is truly an astonishing label. In this day and age, to crank out releases like they do (and with a pretty good success rate for my ears) is a godsend. That said...there is so much CF stuff, I'll never get to it all and I feel like I've only scratched the surface.

    Of your list, I quite enjoy Angels (all of their releases, but especially Injuries), Spiral Mercury, Velkro, and the Bali Tapes. I tend to go for the more energetic stuff, so just off the top of my head:

    Peter Van Huffel - Iron Lung
    Hairybones - Snakelust
    Guillotine - S/t
    FCT TRIO - From Sun Ra...
    Zach Clark - Mesophase
    Kris Davis - Save Your Breath
    Humcrush - Enter Humcrush
    Dystil - S/t
    C Lillinger - First/Second Reason
    Dre Hocevar - Coding Of Evidentiality
    Lisbon Berlin Trio - The Line
    McPhee/et al - Ticonderoga
    Chris Pitsiokos - Before The Heat Death
    Wire Quartet - S/t
    These Arches - Hammered
    No humor please, we're skittish.

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