Damiani Opus Music Ensemble-Flashback 1983 (izmez-polis,lp 26002)'


Here's a lovely little known album , by Paolo Damiani's Flashback ensemble,the stated intentions of which being to investigate the similarities/differences between Mediterranean folk music and Jazz.

A nexus of free Improv/Jazz and Italian folk idioms is' now common place .. mostly through the work of Gianluigi Trovesi, who's album 'Dances' on red records in 1985 proved to be a breakthrough  album in the vein, Paolo Damiani was also the bassist in that trio, and has played with Trovesi periodically since...both have played regularly with the Italian Instabile Orchestra.

although perhaps only intermittently successful in its stated aims,as attempts at genuine syntheses of this nature... often are the disjunctions and failure are as interesting if not more so than the syntheses.

Being a - Don Cherry-Albert Ayler,and so called world music Fanatic i fully appreciate the attempt and have always been drawn to such endeavors..

A beautiful , vibrant spirited performance which manages to come across , despite the harsh slightly glassy quality of the sound on this recording.

Other than Fresu and Schiaffini, the other performers here are unknown quantities to me,and the only other record i know well on this label is Tony Oxley's 1986 album Live at Rocella Jonica .which has been reissued on CD.
Damiani ..appears to have been prolific in the intervening years ,making records for Egea, and Splasch among others.

BTW, another Stunning example of tenuous syntheses of Free Jazz and in this case Sicilian polyphonic traditional vocal music is "New Village on the left" by Marcello Melis,an even earlier example.

Compositions by Jean-Louis Méchali
Disc 1 recorded at Studio Paraphernalia, Paris, 1993. Disc 2 recorded at Studio Aladin, 1993
Quoi de Neuf Docteur DOC 028 (France) double CD
http://www.discogs.com/Jean-Louis-Méchali-Ciné-Club/release/4677463 (with scans)

Ripped not from the original CDs but from CD-R copies. My scans were made from b&w photocopies of the booklet.

From the (translated) liner notes by Jean-Louis Méchali
"Music and rhythm of images: images and colours are music: Cinéma and music become interwoven in my mind's eye. I have imagined a film in which images are sounds and music.
I first, with digital magic, delineate background, extras and secondary roles.
Then I invite fourteen friends - musicians - to play as principals in a dreamscape.
They arrive separately, one by one, to play, each on a different day.
Queries: Where are they? Their likes and loves? A birth? A traffic jam? They react suddenly to what flashes over the headphones. One take only. Others watch, attendant upon the master performance.

Their scattered spontaneity is finally integrated into the soundscape through mixing and montage.
INTERMISSION ... ICE-CREAM/POP-CORN ... PROJECTION

We listened to the "film", we felt the urgent need to share impressions, to single out details, to re-scan, to switch roles, to laugh, to say something new ...
Fragments and whole chunks of the "film" triggered a musical colloquium in the studio.
I realised I had in hand the two halves of the double CD "Ciné-Club"."

Surprisingly litte information on JL Méchali can be found online.
Clifford Allen mentions in passing " the brotherly pairing of drummer Jean-Louis and bassist François Méchali, who were on call for a number of excellent French avant-garde recordings and concerts in the ‘70s and early ‘80s." The Méchalis played "small-combo post-psychedelic jazz" with the Cohelmec Ensemble that released three LPs in the early 70s. One of them was shared at Mutant Sounds long ago. Three pieces from that LP can still be downloaded from WFMU.
It seems that JL Méchali released only two recordings as a leader, "Tie-Break" (1987) and "Ciné-Club" (1993) which bear the label of MFA, the official agency promoting French musicians and their work, but strangely none is listed in the MFA disc directory.
Since 2000 he has concentrated on his work at "Lutherie Urbaine", an organisation that "creates music drawing from all genres, from contemporary urban music and jazz to world music and sound art. The project brings together composers, musicians, lute makers and technicians, not to mention actors, authors, dancers, plastic artists and film makers…"

JEAN-LOUIS MECHALI "TIE-BREAK + 2ND SET" (LE CHANT DU MONDE, 1987/88)






This is a post on behalf of E-mile.

Let us read what he says about this recording and how he came to post it:



Well, I made a mess of things...
also way back in the days when I recorded
this music....
Memory doesn't serve me well, but it seems I rented
the CD version of the Jean-Louis Mechali album...
Not the vinyl.
A TDK cassette 90 minutes is 45 minutes A+B each.
I would program the CD-player in order to get as close
to those minutes as I could.
In other words: I didn't tape the whole darn thing!
If you want to hear all of this, spend at least 18 euro's
and try to obtain this CD:
http://www.cdandlp.com/item/1/1378-2407-0-1-0/106079711/jean-louis-mechali-tie-break-2eme-set.html

This is the original CD version's tracks:

1.5:30 ricochets
2.8:16 lembranca
3.4:19 dream-ambulation dans la ville blanche
4.4:31 halogene
5.4:28 villa les mimosas
6.8:50 la grive ... envine
7.4:59 la criee
8.2:43 big bang
9.5:37 ballade a contre-jour
10.2:48 tamaris marine
11.3:27 la galerie aux portraits
12.4:46 night light + halflight
13.2:34 the underdog
14.3:47 derive de chaleur
15.3:42 le fil du temps

info from:
http://music-downloader.ru/info/21390/
or
http://cdtrrracks.com/bid117641.html

This is what is on the LP version (without the 2nd set):

A1 Halogène 4:28
A2 Ballade À Contre Jour 5:33
A3 Villa Les Mimosas 4:25
A4 Big Bang 2:41
A5 The Underdog 2:32
B1 "La Grive"... Enfin 8:47
B2 Tamaris Marine 2:44
B3 Night, Light, And Half Light 4:42
B4 Dérive De Chaleur 3:43

info from discogs:
http://www.discogs.com/Jean-Louis-Mechali-Tie-Break/release/1792832

And this is what I got on tape:

1-Underdog 2.34
2-Tamaris Marine 2.48
3-Night Light and Halflight 4.46
4-Derive De Chaleur 3.47
5-Ballade a Contre-Jour 5.37

10-Ricochets 5.30

Drums, Marimba, Vibraphone, Percussion – Jean-Louis Mechali

Recorded at Studio Adam, Feb 1987.

hope you enjoy the music,
it's in decent 320 mp3,
alas no FLAC for ancient TDK cassettes [:-)

Shockabilly- "Normal", Illinois, April 6 1985 AUD



Purportedly one of the last shows by Shockabilly the original and best psychedelic Post punk band..

LSD Country and Western was the first Chadbourne thing i ever bought when it came out , still a great chewy listen! , and what a fine introduction to the likes of Tom Cora and T.Kondo...

This is a hugely atmospheric tape recording, complete with drop outs ,bleed through and minor distortions ... lots of near chaotic frenzied improv ( Electric Rake ,heavily featured!) between typical deconstructions of classic 60's Songs..beautiful stuff!

I've retained the original seeders info file... he seems to find Eugene's Politics funny , perhaps dated and somewhat embarrassing ...., Fuck him ...Chadbourne's Politics are more relevant than ever!!
Chadbourne is selling some live Shockabilly shows, and i think the original albums are mostly reissued by Shimmy Disc Kramer's label ,now back in business!

Jaki Byard Trio-Live at the Jazz Inn, (Futura, LP, Ger 29, 1971)


' Small contribution to the OP Futura thread ...

Here's a Lesser Known record by the great Jaki Byard , too often unjustly remembered Solely as a Mingus side Man.
his Tenure with Mingus was relatively Short , theres a lot more to him than that, he was one of the most interesting 'Mainstream 'jazz pianists of his day!

Byard's string of eclectic adventurous records for Prestige in the 60's are magnificent, as is his later post 70's oeuvre , for labels as diverse as Muse, Concord ,Soul Note,and Leo...

He also plays Alto sax on 3 tracks here, astoundingly playing Fractured Tayloresque runs on Piano ,and  simultaneously scrabbly  Japan in a dishpan like Alto on the 'Garnering ,a bit Free Suite for Paris'..

Byards was a masterfully executed flawlessly inventive Technique which effectively synthesizes, Stride, Earl Hines ,so called Trumpet Style, Bud Powell and Free Jazz.

 Byard Also loved Piano duets, recording great ones with Howard Riley, Earl Hines, and Ran Blake....and Tommy Flanagan(see comments)
He  recorded a solo album for Futura , 'Parisian Solos'which has been reissued and can be found here its great!

Enjoy!

TRIO RICOCHET "BROOKLYN, FEBRUARY 2006"




Nobu Stowe (須藤伸義 = Nobuyoshi Suto, Ph.D.) was born in Maebashi, Gumma, Japan. He started taking piano lessons at age 3 and composition at age 6.  Stowe moved to the US to study Music (composition) and Psychology at University of California, at Berkeley.  He then moved to Chicago to pursue graduate studies at University of Chicago.  After receiving the doctorate degree in Psychology, he moved to Baltimore for post-doctoral training at National Institute of Health.  In Baltimore, Stowe formed the post-fusion unit TRIO RICOCHET and performed at top venues, including Blue Note N.Y., The Knitting Factory, and Smithonian Institute.  In addition to his composition-based piano trio, Stowe has lead/co-lead various projects exploring ‘total-improvisation’ (a la Keith Jarrett) collaborating with Perry Robinson, Badal Roy, Andrea Centazzo, Dave Ballou, Lisle Ellise, Brian Groder et al.  He recently formed a new trio with the Italian multireedist Achille Succi and the drum legend Barry Altschul.  Stowe has been featured/interviewed internationally on All About Jazz (USA), Jazz Review.com (USA), Coda Magazine (Canada), All About Jazz Italia (Italy), Jazz Colo(u)rs (Italy), Cuadernos de Jazz (Spain), Toma Jazz (Spain), Impro Jazz (France), Citizen Jazz (France), Bitaites (Portugal), Jazz & Tzaz (Greece), El Intruso (Argentina), and Jazz Tokyo (Japan).  Stowe regularly contributes columns and interviews (including ones with Keith Jarrett, Michel Legrand, Gary Peacock, Paul Bley, Bill Frisell, Martial Solal, Marilyn Crispell, and Chico Hamilton) for Jazz Tokyo (www.jazztokyo.com).  Stowe is the contributing author of "ECM カタログ” – the first ever complete catalogue of ECM Records (1969-2010) with full color album covers just published in Japan.  He recently moved to San Diego and currently conducts scientific research at The Scripps Research Institute.

 ....
Already in May I got a mail from Nobu Stowe who offered me a dozen of his recordings for sharing here at Inconstant Sol.

They are meant as an appreciation for our ongoing efforts ;) in making available rare recordings which are OOP or where never (not yet?) released.

During the following weeks I shall upload his generous gifts. You will be able to listen to not yet released music and also to several issued ones.

More information on Nobu Stowe you'll find here and another interview from 2008.
I shall begin with a music which is not commercially available.

Thank you Nobu!
