Ennio Morricone-The Black belly of the Tarantula and My dear Assassin -1971




Here's one of the great Morricone soundtracks , i taped a friends Vinyl years ago, taping over a cassette that was probably 10 years old when i recorded over what was on it....
I havent seen the Film , not a huge fan of Franco Nero(was it Franco Nero???)...but musically this is just something else!

Gruppo di Improvisatione Nuova Consonanza, are rumored to be performing on parts of this, and certainly some parts have sections which are freely improvised , though not that many.... not too much distinctive Morricone Tpt either but...lots of electric Organ drones that sound like C.Roque Alsina or Franco Evangelisti, and some evocatively scratchy atonal guitar, Scelsi-esque string sections, and so forth.

I transferred this years ago , and used some compression , being inexperienced at ripping tapes.
the results sound fine despite minor flaws...
Enjoy
probably not worth Flac-ing , given that certain types of Compression introduce a lossy element...especially strong leveling programs
if anyone really wants Flac's i can upload those later.
would be great if some one were willing to share a straight Vinyl rip of this

Interesting alternative to file sharing lockers.


 While availability of cloud storage services increases on a monthly basis there is often little to differentiate between rival products. Today though we take a look at an unlimited cloud-storage service that not only allows users to upload files from their own computers, but also to pull in media from BitTorrent swarms and share it with friends privately and at high speeds.

Baden-Baden Free Jazz Meeting 1970


This scenic picture of downtown Baden-Baden is meant to signal more vintage goodies from the annual free jazz meetings in that town in Southwest Germany. We have posted excerpts from the 1967, 1969 and 1971 meetings before and we will have the 1977 coming up in a little while. So now for the 1970 set which I think is the most complete of the ones we have posted up to now. I had a set which ran to about six hours and thirty minutes, but this set adds another hour and introductions to most of the pieces heard.

This is recorded off radio, medium wave I would think. They are all in mono, though the intros indicate they were also broadcast in stereo. The introductions are by Joachim E. Behrendt most likely, the driving force behind these annual meetings. Occasionally one hears communications bursting in on the radio frequency, but not too often, fortunately.

I've been listening to these recordings over the last few weeks. There's too much in there to be summarised in a few sentences, but suffice it to say that the line-up reads like a who's who of European-based musicians in the impro-free jazz spectrum round about 1970. Most were invited, but some actually came along out of curiosity, like John Surman's Trio, and promptly sat in on several sessions.

These recordings feature all possible combinations, from the full free jazz orchestra to small groups to duos to solo performances. All in all, a treasure trove of what was happening at that particular point in time. The set lists are found with the individual zipped files in the comments section. Seven cdr-equivalents in all, running for about seven hours and thirty minutes. Thanks to Onx and a US-based trading partner for supplying the yummies. On to you, dear folks!

Graham Sparks-Gurus are Fucked- Fringe benefit Cassette 573, 1983


Not much Australian music improvised or otherwise on I.S so far, Here's something by a friend of mine.. who was active on the small experimental, and free improvised music scene in Sydney from roughly 1978-9 to the mid 80's...

A genuine rarity,100 copies released on what was John Rose's LP/and Cassette lable until he sold the enterprise in the mid or late 80's , to someone who has done absolutely nothing with it since..
I met Graham in the late 80's ,just before he pawned his Alto , he had fallen on tough times, and i was close to being on skid row myself...

This album is a mixed bag , as was the experimental scene in the 80's a fertile time during which outside of AM radio,there was lots of cross pollination of genres,one could go to a pub and see 5 completely different sets in one evening with occasional  unrehearsed jams in between...Post Punk bands were experimenting , and improvising extensively , the Slug Fuckers, Mad room and numerous others playing completely unscripted sets, something which just wouldn't happen today.. besides which by the early 90's poker machines, had already killed off all but the most mainstream venues , today there isn't  a  single Jazz club in Sydney where you will see free improvised music of any kind or what most of us think of as free jazz.
where improvised music takes place publicly it tends to be in Art galleries or tiny warehouses, or special festivals one or two weeks a year such as the Now Now.

Stylistically here echoes of Don Cherry are evident in the flute pieces, the group pieces being basically long Jams , AACM influenced ethno freak outs with an electrto acoustic element..the electronics being oscillators built by Graham

For my money the best and most individual pieces are the 3 Alto solos... some startling soulful original playing there....
Graham didn't even have a copy of the tape.and was surprised to see it resurface.. thanks to Juke for lending me his Copy !
which despite Grahams comments is not that bad sounding at all , no worse than many cassette releases of the time.

Here's Graham in his own words on "Gurus are Fucked"  ..

"It was a surprise to hear from my friend Sotise that he'd come across a copy of 'Gurus are fucked'.
I made this recording thirty years ago , most of the work being done in a hall near circular quay.
It is not my best work ,and quite frankly I was glad it was behind me and forgoten ,but there you have it,
All our deeds both good and bad are recorded for eternity in the fabric of the universe.

I was about 24 years of age and this was probably recorded with a Selmer balanced action alto.
The other members of the band were Alan Corne and Paul Huntingford.
Alan is still playing drums but I don't know what Paul is doing.
The recording quality poor because the trashy tape recorder , which I purchased from a pawn shop,had a very heavy compression function and consequently ironed out all of the dynamics ,which really crapped me off because I like to play with a lot of light and shade.
The title 'Gurus Are Fucked', is a rebuke for "spiritual teachers of all flavours who claim to know God and his plans and who perceive that taking money , time ,and energy from their customers is a valid occupation.
So many of my friends were sucked in screwed and ripped off by these charlatans.
Although thirty years has passed I still think that gurus are fucked.,but time has made me more erudite and the manipulation of language in poetry is like a fine telescopic site on a canon.

Although I never found a way to make money from music or art ,and gave up music twenty five or so years ago in order to purchase food and not sleep in squats , I have always managed to assuage my creative urges and have recently purchased a beautiful 1943 Beuscher Big B alto,and have taken up painting again.
Please find attached some poems pertinent to my continued views on gurus.
Thank you"
Graham Sparks.




Marian McPartland (RIP)- Interplay, Halcyon LP 100,1970


Here's a Nice M.McPartland lp , the few,non virtual friends i have who like Jazz dismiss this and her records in general as cocktail tinkling.. there's a lot more to it than that.
... and no to my ears she's no Bill Evans clone..
True this is a mellow affair compared to live at hickory house, and the bassist isn't as interesting or subtle as she...
According to discogs, this is from 1970, and can be purchased for as little as , 2 dollars, her stock is obviously lower than it should be!

Roll a fat one , mellow out  enjoy, and spare a thought for those around the world living in squalor , under the jackboots of oppressive governments, or living in War zones , who can barely feed themselves, let alone accumulate terabytes of music,unlike the majority of us living in a luxury predicated on the very squalor of those oppressed peoples.

Frank Lowe Orchestra-Lowe and behold., Musicworks 3002,1977


This ones for Aussie Tony, not my favorite Lowe by any means... flawed by the very high standards of ' the Flam', and other magnificent masterpieces ...by F.Lowe who simply was one of the of the greatest period.!

the AACM and more specifically Wadada Leo Smith;s influence is obvious here

My own dessert island selections, apart from 'the Flam' are the ferociously beautiful collaborations with Joe Mcphee on legend streets one and two.... check them out on the Cadence website!

and yeah..Polly Bradfield, is subtly brilliant  here , she should be as famous as John Zorn , who doesn't to my ears sound entirely comfortable.

Following on from Nick’s posting of the Burn/Butcher album Fonetiks, I dug out this old radio broadcast of Chris Burn’s Ensemble.  I’ve left in all the between-track chat not only because it’s interesting but because it is a joy to hear such well-spoken voices.
Some Ensemble recordings are still available through John Butcher’s website.

JIM DENLEY, flute
STEVIE WISHART, violin, hurdy-gurdy
