And not at least this fantastic LP (dl also available) from Lithuanaia's No Business Records.
Some weeks before I aquired this great, great LP I saw a video with the same group on youtube. I was quite enchanted and thought about mailing Frédéric Blondy hoping to get a CDr of this concert.
Fortunately (?) it wasn't necessary to ask Mr. Blondy - got the dl - got the LP - I'm glad the music is as good as I hoped for.

WADADA LEO SMITH & HAMID DRAKE "EMPTY BOTTLE CHICAGO 2001"



Here we have the first contribution of Correct Silence.
The following are his own words........

Wadada Leo Smith has often shared the stage or the studio in duet with drummers: Adam Rudolph, Sabu Toyozumi, Jack Dejohnette, Louis Moholo and Ed Blackwell. Here is a concert with Hamid Drake with whom Smith has played sometimes in various bands but never recorded officially.
I have no more details about the exact date of the show. The concert is complete, it’s an audience recording with good sound, sometimes there are silences or soft playing by both musicians.
I have decided to keep the material like it has been recorded, no editing has been done.
There are five tracks with no particular titles, the music is improvised.
Listening to this concert, the comparison that comes to mind is Ed Blackwell who’s style is close to Hamid Drake and it can be interesting to listen again to « The Blue Mountain’s Sun Drummer « .
A fantastic record in my opinion.

EVAN PARKER & PETER KOWALD "COTTBUS, 1979"


Re-discovered this excellent recording today when a friend and myself browsed through my collection and listened to great music for almost four hours (with a meal in-between).
Also soundwise a superb outing from these two early prime members of the European version of Free Music.
It seems to me that in later years both worked only very infrequently together. We must not forget that the first visit of Kowald to the UK were he met and played with Parker and John Stevens was a kind of initial ignition for the then burgeoning pan-European scene at the end of the 1960s.
Not the only early meeting but arguably a seminal one.

For Correct Silence - I really enjoy your comments and reasoning. Makes IS a better place - Thanks
