Steve Lacy Three-The Lost Tracks from Capers,1979

I was pretty pissed off years ago when i bought the CD, New York capers and quirks, only to find that almost half the material had been left off including my favourite piece "the crunch" where Ronnie Boykins seems most inventive(and audible), i had given the scratchy old beige soft cover double lp away , because it sounded muddy, and i'd ordered the cd from a shop..
This reissue box edition from 1981 is a huge sonic improvement , on the first edition.
Boykins is not as audible as on the cd versions.. but otherwise the sound is great..
Anyone know why this material hasn't been reissued?

The Crunch is particularly great one of those  sprawling blow out monsters, like the thing, where Lacy stretches his extended technique to the limit.
Dennis Charles Beating out Melodic Martial tattoo like rhythms in unison with Lacy is a Joyous aural feast, a pity this trio didn't record more!
recorded live at soundscape by Peter Kuhn on December 29-1979

Helen Merrill with the Gary Peacock trio-S'posin 1971


The great Helen Merrill's most challenging, outer worldly record ever,,featuring loose , free  highly textured arrangements, by Masahiko Sato, and Peacock , recorded just 4 months before the epochal.. "Samadhi' by the trio...
This also features a touching version of Ellington's in a sentimental mood' which is so obviously Gary Peacock's,very moving tribute to Jimmy Blanton... beautiful oh so beautiful, painfully so..

Only reissued on Cd in Japan and out of print to the best of my knowledge ..
This rip is taken from the early 70's Storyville LP ..

Helen Merrill is as far as i know still recording...and well worth supporting !
she has a website here
ENJOY!!!!

SPONTANEOUS MUSIC ENSEMBLE "UNRELEASED STUDIO RECORDINGS 1966 - 1968"



Soundwise these recordings are a bit muffled but the music's really excellent IMHO.

The Double Trio track was recorded about two month before Brötzmann's 'Machine Gun' - makes for an interesting comparison.

IAN BRIGHTON - A VOICE YOU LEFT BEHIND (SOUNDCLOUD, 2014)




Here is a wonderful piece of news and a treat for us all. Ian Brighton is recording again!

Ian has kindly emailed a few times and I have summarized some of his news.

Hi Nick,

At nearly 70 I have decided to come out of retirement, so to speak, and start recording again: I stopped playing in 1990 after finishing the FMR 001 album, Eleven Years From Yesterday. I could never play full time, as I had a family and required a steady income.  However I kept playing the guitar over the years developing my improvisation forms, but no opportunity to perform in public. Just before I retired from work five years ago, I spoke to Evan Parker, who said something along the lines, "You should come back and start playing again, most of your old friends are still living". After Lol Coxhill passed on, I started listening to our old tapes and realised that my playing has changed so much since those early recordings. Therefore I decided to start recording again and these days it is so much easier with Pro Tools.

I thought you maybe interested that I have released a track called, "A voice you left behind" on my Facebook page Ian Brighton Art and Music.

This is dedicated to Derek Bailey, my mentor and friend. Before the improvisation there is a short section with Derek being interviewed about peoples approach to listening to improvisation. When Derek passed away I felt a tremendous sense of loss, because I always considered him like a distant cousin, who I was close to for a while and thereafter knew I could always call him and it would be just like yesterday. Although he was a massive influence, I never sought out to copy him, as having small hands, I could not stretch my fingers over the fretboard to achieve the same chordal structures.

Next week, I hope to be releasing another one called "Chasing Lol". We played together many times, especially in duet form and it was always a wonderful challenge. In many ways he was a similar player to Sonny Rollins, in as much as his ideas were out of nowhere; sometimes gentle and then with great ferocity; the music being so varied. I will also use as a prelude to the improvisation a comment he made to me on stage at the 1979 Bracknell Jazz Festival, when a man in audience called out for A Night in Tunisia.

These tracks are part of a series of improvisations I will be releasing, where I think of the character as part of the improvisation, instead of just playing a solo performance comprising different aspects of my playing, where I am drawing from my library of sounds. 

Another track will be a conversation with myself, similar to Bill Evans. I am using acoustic and electric guitars in the way that he used acoustic and electric piano but instead of improvising on a particular tune I am using the same approach as per Derek and Lol; to focus on the character.

My son Paul Brighton aka Cuz Beats has recorded and produced the tracks. He is also featured on one of them, when he produces live electronic sound that I use as a background to another improvisation.

If you like the track, please share with other like minded people. It can be downloaded from Soundcloud.

Best regards

Ian


The track is great and more to come!

A very happy 70th birthday to Ian.

David Murray's -Live at Peace Church, Revisited,.an appeal to Collectors,(and a few Recollections by Dan Serro, its producer)


Recently, in email Conversations with Dan Serro former Kharma label boss and also  producer of David Murray's wonderfully vivid, viscerally exiting, live at the Peace Church, released in 1991, he shared some recollections about the circumstances relating to its creation,
which with his permission i'd like to relay here in edited form...

Before i do that i'll state that i also want to unashamedly ,advertise the fact that D.Serro ,is interested in releasing a couple of very worthwhile projects,on lp, including a duo from the 70's by Byard Lancaster and Yusef Yancy..
a costly exercise that requires a lot of money... i told Dan that we have no hesitation , advertising the fact that he has new Sealed copies of Live at peace church for sale for twenty dollars U.S , about half the price that second hand copies sell for.
My appeal is to Vinyl Aficionados, who might want to buy or are considering buying peace church , to do so directly from Dan Serro, in the knowledge that  you will be helping fund further releases.

i asked Him about the circumstances of its recording and release, saying i felt it was the most vivid aural document he had produced!
here are a few ruminations by him

"It was something that happened by accident.   I had just gotten my recording equipment and a friend told me that i should record this concert at the Peace Church.  I did not know who David was at the time.
 He had just come from California and was new on the scene.   I asked if the musicians would mind and was told no. So i got a truck and took the equipment to the Church and set up.   Just 4 mikes and a small mixer with 4 inputs.
 Many years later i played the tape for a Japanese  custmer who had come in from Japan and was at my place buying records.
 By then David was famous and had a lot of records out.  the guy was a big Murray fan and he wanted me to put out the record.
 I had ran out of money for the records i had pt out on Kharma and told him and he said he would go partners with me on it.
 I contacted David and we made a deal (expensive) and then after paying David and the others i contacted the guy in Japan.
 The Japanese had just had a big stock market loss and he said he couldn't come up with the money.
 Since i had already paid David i could do nothing else but put the record out.
 Limited by contract to 1500 copies.
I agree that it is the best job of recording i ever did....    Don't know if maybe it was the Church that helped or just the way i had miked them but it came out fantastic.

Things happen in strange ways sometimes.   Like the Burton Greene record.   Keshavan was not supposed to be on that record.
He got up on stage while i was recording and i was afraid i would not have enough to put the record out.
It was supposed to be a solo piano record.It is my second favorite record of all of the ones i put out."
Dan Serro

Again,Please consider buying a copy directly from Dan , who is a nice , approachable Man, in the knowledge that you will be helping fund worthwhile projects.
he can be contacted at.
Danola@aol.com

PS ... hope my confreres here don't mind if this stays at the top of the page for awhile...
We don't go in for paid advertising here on this blog , nor do we use spurious disclaimers about our shares or ask for donations for ourselves  ...,.i'd like to state categorically that neither i or anyone else here is being paid in cash or kind for this !

Four Bars Inn, Cardiff.  11th July 1988

OK, so the band wasn’t actually called Mujician at this point.  But it soon would be.  Keith Tippett and Paul Dunmall had played a few gigs with Tony Levin and Chris Bolton at Tony’s Jazz Club Friday at the Bartons Arms in Birmingham.  Paul Rogers had played in Tenor Tonic with Dunmall and Levin and the Keith Tippett Sextet but had recently been away in America.  On his return Dunmall arranged some duet gigs and one of them in Cardiff added Tippett and Levin, advertised as the Paul Dunmall/Keith Tippett Quartet.  So this is really Mujician's very first gig and it’s fresh and exciting and utterly magical in its musical coming together.  Luckily Bruce was in Cardiff that night with his tape recorder – so it’s BIG THANKS to him for the opportunity to enjoy an hour or so of history in the making.

Leave a comment.  Thanks.

The Thing live at Kultur-Schranne, Dachau, 2014




I went to see The Thing a week or so back, always keen to catch them whenever they hit town (which isn't that often). Mads Gustafsson ceremonially annouced that they taken an abrupt new turn in music, going from barbecue jazz to Scandinavian avant garde schläger. They still don their Ruby's BBQ tea shirts, though, which has become their regular uniform over the years. If anyone wonders whether that place actually exists, well, it does, right there in Austin, Texas, which also happens to be Ingebright Haaker Flaten's place of residence. The gig coincided with a two-day Blastfest, a metal gathering, so the place was full of long-haired chaps with pointed beards and of chapettes, all dressed up in shades of black. It got me thinking that The Thing ought to fit right into a blastfest, but these metalists tend to be rather strict on genre boundaries. A conservate lot, if you ask me.

The Thing started out as a Don Cheery tribute project and they even did an album and a tour with Neneh Cherry, but from talking to band members, I got the impression that it was a one-off thing and not at all a future course. One may add that The Thing is also a kind of Albert Ayler tribute project, given that Ayler lived in Sweden in the early sixities and had a decisive influence on the early Scandinavian free jazz scene. Bengt "Frippe" Nordström is a link from those days and a player clearly inspiring the much younger Mads. But The Thing have also covered punk and indie bands of newer provenance.

I didn't bring any recording equipment as I don't have any, but searching the Dime site, I came across a live recording at the Kultur-Schranne in Dachau, just out of Munich. Checking the date, I saw it was a little less than a week prior to the gig here, so I suspect the repertoire was quite similar to what I've heard, including covers of Coltrane and Ellington!. They have a new album out called "Boot" which, of course, have quite differing meanings in English and German. As they were offering direct sales of "sheissplatten" (Mads), I picked up a rare one which I might post here in the near future.
