What a long, strange trip ...

This blog is now in its eight 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 ...

Contributions

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

Requests

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.

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.

UPLOADED BY JAZZRITA 09-07-18, remastered July 2o14 by miloo2

This recording was previously shared as Hugh Hopper Quartet on IS contributions section. I think Elton is playing excellently here. I did what I can with improving muddy sound of this recording. Sadly, Keith's piano is underamplified, so we will probably never hear it as we want, but in the end it sounds surprisingly good to me. And more surprisingly, theme at the end of track 5 seems to me like being Gualchos from EDQ Silent Knowledge 1995 album!

I would also like to remind two albums that quartet made: 1976 Cruel But Fair on Compendium label (reissued on CD by One Way Records, now probably OOP) and 1977 Mercy Dash, which remained unsissued until 1985 release on Culture Press (which made also first CD reissue, second is out now by Gonzo Multimedia).

And coincidentally, I've just got the answer to my question, from where this good quality live recording on YT is originated. It was released as a bonus on Japanese paper-sleeve CD Cruel But Fair. So obviously there is another stuff!

ANDREW HiLL TRiO - Live at Pori 2oo2


A small contribution - what I managed to rescue from cd-r - a second half of trio performance at Pori Festival, recorded for radio broadcast. Don't know the track names, it did not match tracklist at http://www.jazzdiscography.com/Artists/Hill/hill-disc.htm in any way. Hypnotic drum solo on track 1, lot of spacey piano and beautiful bass work throughout. Enjoy.
