Is it just me, or does he look just like Bruno Kirby?

Cool, I lost this in the same flood that wiped out half of my early vinyl collection. I remember finding this one, the Pozar and a Joseph Scianni, all Savoy, in a department store cut-out bin for 99 cents each, brand new. Thanks for a much appreciated reunion.

A very well though out recording.According to the liner notes this was posted on Elysa's 44th birthday! The interview w/curran is interesting too.
I especially enjoyed the clarinet,low end brass,andthe drumming on "drac".Thanks!

Fabulous! I have wanted to hear all this lp ever since hearing a couple of tracks on another blog. I'm so pleased - and it's all good too!

I LOVE INCONSTANT SOL! I have found many hopelessly unobtainable and OP sides on IC, and also encountered so much more new music, records and artists I had never so much as heard of before they featured here. You've doing a wonderful thing.

Thanks for putting this up again, onxidlib...it's brilliant. Hearing this and the Robert Pozar again, has made my day!

Why oh why have neither been re-issued?

my computer seems to think there's a virus in that file, could it be??

onxidlib said...

I don't think so - the files were stashed since the first upload on a external hd.
But off course I can't be sure either 'cause I might got a virus sometime.
I shall check it, though.

A real great album and an interesting approach to avant garde, a different vision than the e.s.p sound at the time, very influenced by Eric Dolphy but very personal too, Thanks Onxidlib
