UN-RELEASED RECORDINGS 1960 - 1985 (no music...)

Three weeks ago I bought the book "Free Jazz And Improvisation On Vinyl 1965 - 1985".
I was a bit disappointed but as an 'addict' I enjoyed it notwithstanding its shortcomings and mistakes.
And the 'mistakes' prompted the idea to collect all known information about never released LPs (or cassettes et.al.).
In the book there's a section about Po Torch Records - Paul Lovens' label.
An insert which was included in some of the releases (e.g. Rutherford-Lovens JWD/PTR 3) had an announcement for six (two in the book) LPs which never made it onto the turntable...

I would like to suggest that we confine ourselves to the period from 1960 to 1985.
Maybe we should - at least for a start - list only items which are related to Free Jazz.
Items which are circulating as bootlegs of these elusive sound carriers are welcome as well - we are looking for NIP (never in print) issues which would/could/should have been official releases.
As much information as available would be nice: line-up, title, recording-date, track-titles, label etc. - maybe we can collect some data for a discography solely made of recordings which were never edited.


Here are the first few un-released recordings..........

KENNY WHEELER R.I.P.

















Thanks to those of you who have contributed to Kenny's welfare at this difficult time.  Here's an update from the Ottawa Citizen.

Sadly this bulletin has been superceded by this one.

As Sergio rightly says below, Kenny Wheeler was a true GIANT.

There are not many jazz musicians who have a foot in the freely improvised side of things and also compose and play some of the most beautiful and ravishing music in jazz, in anywhere.

Condolences to his family, friends and all his fellow musicians.

Thanks Kenny.  You gave a lot and left a lot.  Beautiful.

COWWS "ULRICHSBERG, 1988"


An audience recording from a wonderful group who made only very few recordings - especially the first track here is excellent.
At the moment there's only one recording readily available as a download - but it's worth every penny.

Billy Bang/John Lindberg-duo 1979(anima lp 1bl-36)+B.Bang-Distinction without Difference-1980



Update 4-9-2014
A repost of the great 1979 Anima duo LP + Distinction without Difference, Billy Bang's 1980 Hat Hut (IRO4)LP
No Syrup, no EQ,no tracking... just light manual De Click 


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(POST-12-8-2008)Another timeless relic from the halcyon
years when the New York loft scene was burgeoning with fresh talent. Lindberg and Bang are both particular favourites of mine ,discovered years ago whilst stumbling across those early new york string trio records on black saint. Lindberg was a teenage prodigy who was playing with the likes of Jimmy Lyons, Roscoe Mitchell, Anthony Braxton and Sunny Murray while barely 18. Those more familiar with either of the two's later work may struggle at first to find a way into this session which is about as thorny as anything from the period. the pieces are largely improvised and make full use of extended techniques like col legno , and scrapping, and even what sounds like tapping the soundpegs inside the resonators of the instruments. This is the only ANIMA lp i've ever come across ,it appears to have been an artist run label that was very short lived.. ive included scans of the contemporaneous catalog in the files. this is truly superb and still sounds very fresh. i recommend the flac's ,but will also upload the mp3's. BTW/ im hoping someone has the collaboration by David Murray and Charles Tyler mentioned in the catalog as the next forthcomming release. enjoy!!
