What a long, strange trip ...

This blog is now in its 12th year, started back in February 2007 by Sotise, our correspondent from down under. Bundles of people have contributed over the years, some gone, others holding on and yet others joining and putting their distinctive mark on the contents and direction of the blog. Currently we have about half a dozen active posters and some very generous followers, judging from inputs to our contributions section, 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 sight and out of mind. Due to spam and some past experiences of personal attacks, we 've had to institute a moderator system, so comments may not appear right away, but they will be published.

With these few words, heading on ...

5 August 2019


Anything our readers and followers would like to contribute goes here. That may include recommendations, reviews, recordings, you name it.

The earlier contributions thread was unfortunately deleted, but we have managed to recover about three years of the last five years of posts. The recovered posts have now been moved to separate posts in the new thread. All links to files are working at the time of writing. If there is anybody out there who has found that their contributions are missing, feel free to repost them or if anybody has downloaded files when they were still available, the same thing applies.  Of course, we welcome any new contributions from our followers, anything that we and you should know about.

4 August 2019


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.

Free form

Anything else goes here. Observations on the general state of the universe and its overall direction are particularly welcome, but also on more mundane matters as you may see fit.

Hi , Heres a new section , which will feature links to the Original posts of things that are just being, or have recently been re uploaded..
the Contributions and request sections are too cluttered , making it difficult to keep track!
comments will be disabled for this section!

Please help us out, if you see comments asking for a re-upload, and you have the files!!
(preferably use only file hosts accessible to free users,do not use these files to make money!)
Please do not ask us to re upload records which are generally available, or have been recently reissued, whatever the format!!

Surely it goes without saying that all views expressed on this Blog , be they impressions  delusions
reveries, political statements, opinions are ours and ours alone , Music stimulates the imagination, so switch off y'r TV, listen ... make up your own minds.

So here goes, I'll start with a few I have recently re uploaded

It Is Good To Take But It Is Also Good To Give

The music that we post here are downloaded several dozen times by many followers. So be kind to check sometimes the request section at 

and jump to « newest » to see the more recent request of re-post and provide the files requested when you have them. We have regular followers and Im’ sure that they have most of the music posted here during those recent years, so take your chance to give to someone else what you have taken here. The original poster have not always kept the file or sometimes have to rip it again, so help us when you can. Few followers have done an incredible job of re-post, but the adventure could be more collective in my opinion.

This is a rather unusual release for the German Democratic Republic.
Generally the label NOVA was for contemporary classic, entertainment and experimental releases.
But for some reason the music on this LP was not issued on the label AMIGA which had a series called AMIGA Jazz.
Further I would like to point out that the given bassist for track B2 is most likely not Blazeowsky but Christoph Niemann.
Niemann is credited for this role on all three editions of the LP which was solely reserved for FEZ (AMIGA 8 55 585, 1978).  And the title which is included on this LP is the same as on the FEZ LP/CD.

Not only was this a minor bummer but also the music played here by the Rundfunk-Tanzorchester Berlin. Nothing wrong with it for sure but as NOVA was a label reserved also for experimental music I expected something more at the margins. But expectations aren't necessarily the best guide for enjoyment. So have fun as I had after I've accepted what's on this disc ;-)

And finally here's a request. The only other recording by FEZ is on an LP released in 1979 by the
Czechoslovakian label OPUS. The festival sampler "Bratislavské Džezové Dni 1976" contains more than 15 minutes of an otherwise unavailable composition by this special group.

Gumpert's trio and the ensemble of Hubert Katzenbeier (here not on trombone!) are in fine form - as expected....

A1. Grüsse Von Buddy (Nicht Kaputt - Speziell An Achim - An Alle)  13:26

Rundfunk-Tanzorchester Berlin:
Joachim Graswurm, flugelhorn
Friedrich Schlegel, Gerhard Pabst, Heinz Becker, trumpet

The above picture belongs to a proposed vinyl edition of this 1966/67 recording.
The line-up is Hugh Steinmetz on trumpet, Franz Beckerlee on altosax, Bo Thrige Andersen, Steffen Andersen on drums and bass and not at least Niels Harrit on singing saw.
Maybe not so famous as they deserve. But no other than Sunny Murray did a recording with this guys in 1965.

First release of this great music was in 2005 on Atavistic.
But this time it would be reissued on vinyl.
This depends on how many music lovers would express their serious interest in helping to fund it.

So anyone who's willing to bet on it is invited to help the fundraising.


On 8 days are remaining - so hurry ;-)

Alexander von Schlippenbach - a threat for the US?!?!?

Want some real surreal for the week-end.

Alexander von Schlippenbach - familiar to our readers and listeners - should have been in the US for two concerts with Evan Parker and Paul Lytton.
He was invited a.o. to play in NY, Chicago and Knoxville, Texas.
(scheduled US tour from 18.-28.March)

But when applying for a visa / work permit for the two concerts he was rejected by the American embassy in Berlin.
Not only that he wasn't allowed to enter the US but he hasn't got back his passport at least until March 24 .......

The "New York City Jazz Record" did a front-feature for AvS on basis of the planned concert in NY. But sadly this will remain a more theoratical experience for all interested listeners in NY and other locations in the States.


Asking myself what could be the basis of such a "decision" - if decision is the real word.

ELTON DEAN'S NiNESENSE - Bracknell Jazz Festival 1978

I got this audience recording in trade from many years ago and I shared it previously in comments to some other Ninesense recording here. Recently I gave it a listen and found it wholly enjoyable and great preformance, thus I tried some equalisation from original mp3@320. In the end it is improvement I think. Setlist is similiar to 100 Club Concert from 1979. Track 5 (including 11 min of great improv) has significantly clearer sound without audience noises (which are quietly enjoyable during quiet passages earlier) and due to possible speaker entry in the fade out, it can come from some broadcast (possibly) from different concert, but I got it together with this Bracknell recording).

WMWM - Live At The BBC 1973

The year 1973 was decisive in Robert Wyatt’s career, more and more attracted by the vocal and taking a distance with the more experimental aspect of the prog, he was already thinking about a solo career when the accident of June 1st which will let him paraplegic rush things. However it is during the first semester of this same year that WMWM was born whose music is exclusively improvised and almost totally instrumental. Apparently this group sounds like a contradiction to the trajectory that Wyatt's career already seemed to take, but in fact we must understand this group as a sort of carelessness, as some moments of the prog have been some years before. If the accident of Robert Wyatt marks the end of an era, the last act of a period of recklessness that will this time have tragic consequences, this accident is probably not the cause of the short existence of this group. Without the fatal date of June 1, WMWM was in any case not promised to have a future as the musical differences seem obvious, especially between Gary Windo and Dave McRae. Yet it's with both that Wyatt wanted to play and this is what makes the group's interest: Windo crazy and uncontrollable, Mc Rae significantly more structured and reinforced in this posture by Ron Mathewson very inventive and sublime . Wyatt meanwhile is a bit like in "The End Of A Ear" alternating construction and demolition of the rhythm.
This post was made possible with the contribution of Propylaen2001 who provided almost all the recording of the performance given for the BBC apparently on April 4, 1973. I added the end that was missing and the first note of the saxophone in the beginning.
There is an improvisation in two parts to which I did not give titles because a complete confusion reigns around the titles of the two parts. First named "Caramus" and "Spiderman", their order appears as such on the album "Anglo American" by Gary Windo which contains edit of the performance, but the two parts have been reversed. On the version provided by Propylaen2001, the first part of the improvisation is named "Toddler" and the second "Caramus".
If you compare the second part of this recording with the version available on the album "Anglo American" you will find that the pitch of this version is a little higher. In fact for reasons of space the officially released version has not only been edited but also accelerated but that it does not get the pitch has been lowered. I preferred to leave the pitch of this version as it is because it is consistent with the first part.
There is another recording from this band where Mathewson is replaced by Richard Sinclair, of course I recommend it.
Obviously the band have also done one concert in trio without Gary Windo

Equal Interest live at Yoshi's, Oakland, California

Equal Interest
Oakland CA
June 19, 1999 (late show)

1 intro

total time: 77:35

Joseph Jarman - winds (alto sax, bass flute, flute, shawm), percussion
Leroy Jenkins - violin
Myra Melford - piano, harmonium

acoustic performance (no PA amplifiction used)

Some more Joseph Jarman coming up. This is a trio setting, wholly acoustic, without any backup from bass and regular drums, except the occasional percussion. Leroy Jenkins is a veteran of the AACM, notably for his long engagement with the Revolutionary Ensemble. Myra Melford is a pianist with a diverse background in classical music as well as jazz and blues and as can be heard from this performance, went to India and learnt to play the harmonium.

Together they weave a tapestry of chambre-like intimacy naeatly summarised in this review: The through-composed nature of much of the material along with the spare instrumentation contributes to a delicate chamber-like feel, but it’s balanced by an unusual, folksy strain of tranquillity; equally beautiful, hearty and fragile, all at once. See https://jazztimes.com/reviews/albums/equal-interest-equal-interest.

We'll have some more from this ensemble later on.
