What a long, strange trip ...

This blog is now in its 15th year, started back in February 2007 by Sotise, our correspondent from down under. Bundles of people have contributed over the years, some gone, others holding on and yet others joining and putting their distinctive mark on the contents and direction of the blog. Currently we have about half a dozen active posters and some very generous followers, judging from inputs to our contributions section, but we're always willing to recruit more. Potential authors can get in touch with us c/o our Blogger email addresses. We've had contributors from three continents, with a preponderance of Europeans overall.

The emphasis has been on the free/improv/experimental side of jazz, but with excursions into contemporary and classical music, from Europe and beyond. There are no rules, however; the blog is whatever the posters make of it, and we'd like to keep it that way. We focus on posting out of print material with the objective of drawing attention to music which otherwise might have remained out of sight and out of mind. Due to spam and some past experiences of personal attacks, we 've had to institute a moderator system, so comments may not appear right away, but they will be published.

With these few words, heading on ...

THE SAM RIVERS SESSIONOGRAPHY

 



Today I would like to draw your attention to a book.
When I say book it's actually an understatement for the achievement
that Rick Lopez did in collecting all the data and information.
He still hopes for a normal life. Check it out!
 
The Sam Rivers Sessionography AVAILABLE HERE : : : Gofundme-Sam Rivers Sessionography
768 pages + nearly 600 images, many got from The RivBea Archive. 
This is an independent publishing project—also contact ricklopez@bb10k.com for other options.

“A dizzying, stunning achievement of research and scholarship. ... A joyful, sometimes psychedelic experience.”
Mike Chamberlain review, allaboutjazz.com
“A Rosetta Stone of insight, and a well-deserved and worthy tribute to an overlooked giant of the music.”
Taylor Ho Bynum
“What an incredible piece of work. It’s really something else. Informative and entertaining. ... Anticipating hours of joy.”
Barry Altschul
“Absolutely mind-blowing! So great!” —Mats Gustafsson
“An essential resource, a trail map for a rare and beautiful landscape of sounds.” —Larry Blumenfeld
“A tremendous document. ... This book is powerful.” —Jason Moran
“Lopez’s Sam Rivers sessionography is state of the art.” —Lewis Porter
“Rick Lopez’s book is by no means a biography. It’s not a discography either, and it’s not a photo documentation. And yet somehow it is everything at the same time.”
Wolfram Knauer review, Jazzinstitut Darmstadt (Jan 2023)
“Rick Lopez has done it again!” —James Brandon Lewis

NEW RELEASES 2023/2 - BENGT "FRIPPE" NORDSTRÖM VINYL BOX


Here's the result of a huge body of work over two decades by Mats Gustafsson and Thomas Millroth to collect, archive, research and document the work of their friend and Mats' musical mentor, Bengt Nordström - a work of love and dedication to a singular artist. 

The set includes the first re-release of Bengt's Natural Music LP and the first release of music that he shared with friends in tiny runs of test pressings on his Bird Notes label (on 3 LPs, Drastic Plastic, Någonting and Reality). There's a 7" EP of Bengt playing solo with the Ornette Coleman Quintet record, When Will the Blues Leave?, (11/10 on the Discaholic Corner music/rarity scales). The set is completed musically with a 10" tribute LP of performances by Anna Högberg, Isak Hedtjärn, Dror Feiler, Jörgen Adolfsson, Mats Gustafsson and Sven-Åke Johansson. 

Mats has compiled the definitive Bird Note discography (in email after email, for so many years, he has been "working on it" - reaching out, meeting people, sharing recordings and knowledge, writing, proof reading, proof reading, proof reading ...).  

Co-produced by Mats and Thomas with Antoine Plum of Ni-Vu-Ni-Connu and designed by Teresa Iten, the set includes a booklet with contributions by Thomas, an essay by John Corbett, unpublished photography, rare press clippings and notes from the artist. Also, a streaming link to "FRIPPE, Bengt Nordström, Moderna Muséet, 1973-05-29", a film by Torbjörn Ehrnvall.

Released by Ni-Vu-Ni-Connu on 15 February 2023, Bandcamp. Release party at Fasching on 15 February.

NEW RELEASES 2023/1 - CHRIS CAPERS & JOE RIGBY

 


Here are two recent releases from the unpretentious but definitely important label "Homeboy Music".

Although the sound is not the best (but still perfectly listenable) the music is great! My favourite CD is the one without piano ('Revelations'). But the one titled 'Impressions' (yep - the Coltrane tune) isn't tedious either. Both musicians play with full immersion and although the other musicians are unknown the music really took me up and up and up and ....

Hopefully the label's producer Roy Morris has more jewels in preparation.

I would like to recommend both releases for a start. Take a breath and support this enterprise directly at the label: Homeboy Music! - you won't regret it. And apart from ordering two rare releases I urge you to give the website a thorough examination. How many offerings about Earl Cross, Joe Rigby, Arthur Doyle, Yosef Mumin Phillips (from Black Unity Trio) or Ted Daniel you will find elsewhere? Go....

TOWERiNG iNFERNO feat. ELTON DEAN :: Kaddish (TI Records 1993)

I came to this album as it features Elton Dean, John Marshall and Chris Cutler on some tracks.

"Towering Inferno's album Kaddish, which was released by Island Records in August 1995, is an emotional epic spanning 75 minutes and evoking the darkest hours of the Holocaust, as well as the tranquil beauty of European folk music and Jewish prayer. Featuring the voices of acclaimed Hungarian folk singer Márta Sebestyén and Hungarian performance poet Endre Szkárosi in a 'punk/folk/metal/Jewish/classical opera', it tackles the thorny subjects of repression and survival, both past and present." -- www.soundonsound.com

EKKEHARD JOST QUINTET "CARAMBOLAGE" (VIEW,1983)

Excellent music by Ekkehard Jost and his comrades. "Palestrinas Reise nach Cadiz" is one of my favourite tunes from him which he has recorded at least twice. Another version and other clichè-free music can be found here. http://www.jazzhausmusik.de/pages/catalog_by_id.php?label_id=11 I would like to recommend three CDs: "Deep" with - among others - Tony Oxley and "Some Other Tapes" with different line-ups (including the second version of "Palestrinas Reise nach Cadiz"). And "Wintertango" with his working group.

DIETMAR DIESNER "SOLO" (AMIGA, 1988)

 

This is one of the rare appearances of Dietmar Diesner on LP/CD. He's not very eager to do recordings at all and his opinion is that (freely) improvised music is better appreciated in a live setting (... he might have a point ...). And the last of his few recordings he seemingly made approximately 1997/98 - and that's it. 

... who weren't at the location when the music happened ....


Dietmar Diesner, all instruments, etc.


1. Permanence 8805032224 (21:15)
alto saxophone, electronics

2. Verweigerung des Unplötzlichen (10:06)
soprano saxophone, Marmor (marble), Stahltür (steel-door), ein blauer Eimer (blue bucket)

3. Rondo 4A (5:56)
alto saxophone, electronics

4. Entzeitigung (5:36)
alto saxophone, electronics, feedback-effects


Recorded May 3 to 5, 1988 at AMIGA-Studio, Berlin

AMIGA 8 56 377
(vinyl rip)


BTW: "Verweigerung des Unplötzlichen" means something like "refusal of the un-sudden". And "Entzeitigung" means that something (or everything) is 'removed' from the influence of time on all (or some) things existing.

Cosmic Rebop Society (Plutonium 2013, DVD)


 I found this in my collection and I don't remember where I got it, probably from Mark Weaver. My memory is not the same as it was.
The strange thing is that I cannot find any reference in the web, also plutonium records page has disappeared.
The other musicians looks as well unknown, but the music is really worth, the images also.
I added the audio extraction, directly from DVD, while the movie is a mp4.
