Kevin Ayers 1944 - 2013


Kevin Ayers has passed away at the age of 68 in the village of Montolieu in the Languedoc-Rossilon region, Southwest France. This village is these days known as a writers and artists' retreat and is one of the book towns of France. To judge from the picture below, it looks to be a excellent location for a quiet and pleasant life with lots of good food and good wine. Here he spent most of his time from the 90s onwards apart from occasional gigs and the recording and release of the "Unfairground" in 2007 with the help of many of the old alumni. The rock life and the muzic bizness never squared well with Kevin Years and nor did England as he preferred to spend his days in reasonable proximity to the Mediterranean.



 What sticks with me from the early days was that strange concoction known as the Whole World. They did not last for long and they did not leave many footprints. The only full album was "Shooting at the Moon" and some stayed on for "Whatevershebringswesing" which together with "Joy of a Toy" were the most proggish and the most unpreditable and slightly eccentric records he made. A BBC double cd came out with recordings for various radio programmes 1970-76, extending well beyond the Whole World period. The Whole World are rambunctious in a luvverly way as couod be expected. A gig in the Netherlands with a guest appearance by Bridget StJohn has been posted here The band mixed songs with extended musical freak outs which did not go well with all fans, but it's all truly great.

 However, some videos have cropped up, adding to the documentation we have of that period. The two first ones were made for French TV during a tour in 1970 and the final one is slightly later, made for the Old Grey Whistle Test in 1972, though, as Kevin Ayers admits,  doing it in a studio with no live audience leaves out the ambiance a live gig with proper audience rapport thrives on.




So here is

Kevin Ayers - guitar, bass, vocals
Lol Coxhill - reeds
Mike Oldfield - guitar, bass
David Bedford - keyboards and accordion on May I
Mick Fincher - drums

First, some improvisations, a brief rendition of "Clarence in Wonderland", then into "Why are We Sleeping", reciting the lyrics in French, and finally, "May I" with a fine solo from Lol.

Do try to seek out those videos on Youtube where he recollects his childhood in Malaysia and says he has no intention of returning as it's not possible to retrieve the past. What once was cannot be recreated except within the imagination which is the domain of the artist.

Malaysia of today is a far cry from the Malaysia of the 50s in its pre-independent guise of British Malaya, I would think. Malaysia of today has a unreflective fascination for modernity in all its manifestations (Cyberjaya, anyone?), except for the values that came with it.

Oh, and my moniker kinabalu is a town and a mountain in Sabah province on the island of Borneo (though Penang remains my fave spot in the peninsular part of the country).

He died in his sleep.

Here's a small thank you for Kinabalu's fantastic series of posts of the Intercommunal Free Dance Music Orchestra. This is François Tusques in a piano-vocal duo with Catalan singer, Serge Utgé-Royo, performing songs and music in evocation of the Paris Commune. Like some of the IFDMO LPs, this was also released on Le Temps Des Cerises. The label name derived from the famous song by Jean-Baptiste Clément and Antoine Renard, dedicated to the fallen in the overthrow of the Commune during the Semaine Sanglante. The  other pictured artists originally wrote, adapted or performed the music in the solo piano suite.

Harry Miller at the BBC 1976-77




There was a request from blogger chum and contributor Miloo 2 to have some of the recordings that Harry Miller made for the BBC up and running again. These were initially uploaded by Ubu on his now dormant blog Ubu Roi here.

However, the first two tracks listed in the blog post have been released on "Full Steam Ahead" on the Reel Recordings label and have consequently been omitted here. Closer examination has revealed that the third track posted is also on the Reel cd, a superb version of "Family Affair" which was also the title tune of the one and only Isipingo lp released in their lifetime, out on the Ogun label, which he founded in 1973 and is now run by his widow Hazel Miller.

I've decided to keep it in here to ensure the narrative radio flow, but also as an enticement for all of you to go get the cd while it's still out there. The only difference from what I can hear is that this recording retains a bit of applause at the beginning and at the end. There is a small discrepancy in that the blog post reports Stan Tracey as being the pianist on the 1976 tracks while the cd says it's Keith Tippett. I'm inclined to go with the latter, so the info file has been corrected.

Finally, there are a couple of 1977 tracks with a different line-up which to my knowledge has not been released in these versions. "Orange Grove" and "Traumatic Experience" appeared on the "In Conference" lp on Ogun which was not with the Isipingo group.

Both of the aforementioned lps were reissued as part of the Harry Miller Collection, a 4 cd box set which is unfortunately out of print. Hopefully it will be reissued to keep Harry Miller's music in circulation. We're doing our little bit here. In any case, do get both the Reel and Cuneiform Isipingo releases. You won't regret it!

KAZUTOKI UMEZU - SHIN MYONG (ZEN, 1992)



From the liner notes -

This album features improvisations by Kazutoki Umezu, one of Japan's leading saxophonists, and the three foremost shamans of the Republic of Korea.

In a shamanistic ceremony of the type known in the Korean language as kut, the proceedings are enhanced by the boisterous singing and dancing of the participants.

The range of techniques which a shaman brings to bear on his or her performing art includes the concept of free meter, that is to say the foundation on which the art of free jazz rests.

ELTON DEAN QUINTET - 1995



Hey Miloo, I hadn’t even  bothered to transfer this from cassette to disc because the piano and bass are rather on the quiet side (a bad side-effect of sitting at the front and missing out on the PA).  However, listening to it now it’s not so bad.  Paul Dunmall plays awesomely but lays out on the lovely Dean tune ‘First in the wagon’ where we can hear Elton play as beautifully as only Elton can (or could, I should say).  How sad it is that he has left us, and of course the same with the irreplaceable Tony Levin.  These people came and played for us and opened our minds and our hearts.  So here is a bit more of their legacy to enjoy.

Anyone who has not heard this group on ‘Silent Knowledge’ (Cuneiform 83) should certainly buy the cd to hear them in their full glory.  Also, Elton made a really super duo album with the stupendous Sophia Domancich called ‘Avant ‘ (Hux 063) which should not be missed.

Here's another superb piano trio, the beautiful Firmanence , on the Elusive, Fore (Rare tone,Music library) label , an independent Italian label , that briefly flourished    between 1980 and 1982, with a handful of releases ranging from Bill Dixon's Considerations , posted here a few years ago , to Scelsi string quartets, and a couple of albums by Alvin Curran.

A reunion of old friends , all Had previously played and performed together in the mid to late 60's,
its a subtle, restrained largely spacious , session consisting of one free improvisation, 3 tunes by Greene ,and one by Silva..
 All in all , a spirited generous record by three venerable free jazz,21st Century Masters!

AKi TAKASE & JANA KOUBKOVÁ - Jazzperanto (Supraphon 1988)


This one-time collaboration of German-based Japanese pianist with Czech singer and improviser Jana Koubková was recorded during one of numerous visits of Aki Takase in the Czech Republic. Like many other international jazz meetings which was held in Prague during the 70's and 80's, it still remains unreleased on CD.

MUJICIAN TRIO. Rare Music Club 14 Aug 1992



Well, it's certainly good to be giving these old recordings an airing.  When bassist Paul Rogers moved to France, Mujician played several gigs as a trio at Keith Tippett's Rare Music Club held at the Malaap Club in Bristol.  Here is a particularly fine session with Paul Dunmall playing C-melody and baritone saxophones.
Great spontaneous music with awesomeness and real beauty.

Keith Tippett,  piano
Tony Levin,  drums
Paul Dunmall,  C-melody and baritone saxophones

Track 1.  30:56
Track 2.  40:59

Rare Music Club at the Malaap Club, Bristol.  14 August 1992

Live cassette recording.

Enjoy.
