Giorgio Buratti-(J.Byard, D.Richmond, B.Jones,E.Preston) A smooth day ...-Durium lp, MS A 77268-1971



A rare one by eclectic Italian Jazz and improvising bassist and later electro - acoustic composer Giorgio Buratti , heard here in an impromptu studio session with members of Charles Mingus's touring band at the time..
 An unexpectedly intense foray into total improvisation, rather similar in substance and perhaps inspired by Mingus's 1961 free-cut up Collaged piece 'Passions of a man' , similarly alternating rambunctious, abrupt explosive polytonal gospel romps with elided pointillistic textural abstraction.. .
....besides which the fun being had by all involved is palpable and infectious...and very clearly audible..almost relentlessly so!

Amazing !.. what a joy to hear the great Jaki Byard in completely free mode for an entire record  , his contribution is outrageously fluid ..and certainly among the busiest and most genuinely interactive i've ever heard him..

Not much info to be gleaned online  about this particular session,
Here's a link to Buratti's website
Buratti made a string of interesting experimental albums from the late 60's to the mid 70's , some of which don't easily fit into genre classifications,one of those" Explosions "can still be found here, see the last comment by al66
ENJOY!!

PS.. this was a garage sale find years ago , the record is pockmarked with tiny indentations ... not a great copy .. to be sure.!.

ALAN SILVA CELESTRIAL COMMUNICATION ORCHESTRA "DESERT MIRAGE" (IACP, 1982) - re-up



On this and the previous Alan Silva post, he is not playing himself but it's "his" music nonetheless.

These sprawling vistas - like flying and/or floating over vast sky- and landscapes. Immersed but somehow not attached.

On this LP the music has sometimes a dreamlike quality (see/hear "Desert Mirage") and au contraire to his LPs on BYG the music here has a more "structured" sound. Not that I would dislike "unstructured" sounds from Alan Silva or per se...

The Silva - as ever.

EDDIE PREVOST, percussion
LOU GARE, violin, tenor sax
KEITH ROWE, guitar, electronics
JOHN TILBURY, piano

Second set  45:09

October Gallery, London.  15 December 1991

Maybe this only applies to non-drivers like myself, but have you ever been at a gig/concert when you know you have to leave by a certain time to catch the last train/bus and, as good as the music is, you’d like it to finish, but it doesn’t, it seems to go on forever, even when there was a natural obvious ending five minutes ago?  Well this gig wasn’t like that, not for me anyway. I was getting a lift from the wonderful girl who used to drive to most of the venues around England where I made the recordings I’ve been posting.  (Eternal thanks to her.) No, I was relaxed, knowing I could hear every last note, scrape and thrum.  But John Tilbury, on the other hand, needed to catch his train and left halfway through this second set.  Thus turning AMM into the Masters of Disorientation I suppose.

Thank you to the six people who kindly left a comment to set 1.  Your encouragement gives me a sense of purpose.
 
@Maready, Lou Gare was the opposite of a front-man.  He would stand, or walk around at the back of the rest of the group.  I only met him a few times but he came across as a very humble, gentle and thoroughly nice man.  It’s a shame we don’t hear more of him.  It’s well worth hearing the AMM albums made when it was just the duo of Prevost and Gare:  ‘At the Roundhouse’ (Anomalous Records) and ‘To Here and Back Again’ (Matchless Recordings).  Also his solo (tenor) album ‘No Strings Atttached’ (Matchless Recordings).  Obviously ALL the AMM albums are worth hearing.

Spontaneous Music Ensemble - Karyobin



There was a request for this one from Roberto T. a while back in our comments section at the top. I knew I had it on the Ipod, so it must be retrievable from the archives. Perseverance shall be rewarded, they say, so here it is.

This is a classic, needless to say. British improv; understated, chamber-like, light-footed, intimate, attentive, cohesive, whatever adjectives may apply. And a fine thing, all in all.

Guitar [Electric] - Derek Bailey
Saxophone [Soprano] - Evan Parker
Trumpet, Flugelhorn - Kenny Wheeler
Bass - Dave Holland
Drums - John Stevens

Recorded at Olympic Sound Studios 18/2/68.

SUNNY MURRAY "SONNY'S TIME NOW" (JIHAD, 1965)



Some hours ago there was a request for this album - I believe it is OOP.
This post contains the title "The Lie" which was for the first time released on the Japanese LP re-edition. The package included a one-sided single which wasn't part of the original Jihad LP.
The CD contains both - single + LP.
What to say else about the music - it is a classic and it should appeal to everyone who digs f.e. ESP.
Soundwise it is a bit murky and sadly the bassists are best heard in the quieter parts.
But the intensity of the music will make up for those shortcomings and Mr. Murray IS a master of the drums.


Sunny Murray, drums
Albert Ayler, tenor saxophone
Don Cherry, trumpet
Henry Grimes, bass
Lewis Worrell, bass
Amiri Baraka, spoken words


01. Virtue             11:03
02. Justice (pt.1 + 2) 12:51
03. Black Art          06:41
04. The Lie            05:55

TT 36:32


Recorded Brooklyn, NY, November 17, 1965.

Amiri Baraka was known as LeRoi Jones at this time and is so credited on the issues.
Sunny Murray spelled his name "Sonny" at this time.

FRED VAN HOVE "KKWTT" (NATO, 1984)



This a re-up from a post I made in January 2012. The words below are from this year.
But most of them are still good. Especially why is there no re-issue and more particularly > Enjoy!


When I got to hear this recording at a friends house (thank you A.) I immediately knew I had to obtain this extraordinary and marvelous composition (and playing!!) by Fred Van Hove.

Some days ago it arrived - and upon second hearing I wasn't disappointed - Au Contraire!

Hopefully Nato is preparing a proper reissue...

Enjoy!
