jazz composers orchestra -communications 1964-65

hi all here's the classic communications from,1964 on fontana.its been unavailable for many years and only available on cd in japan in the early 90's

it is now out of print.

last year i saw a copy on ebay(the cd,that is )going for the ridiculous price of us $100.

unfortunately i cant find a review, but its a fine compliment to,the 1968 record on jcoa which is available on watt(distributed by ecm).

personnel- paul bley-pno, steve lacy-soprano, jimmy lyons-alto, roswell rudd-trb mike mantler-trpt ,composer(tracks ,2 3)archie shepp-tenor, john tchicai-alto, fred pirtle-winds, willie ruff -french horn, ken mcintyre-reeds, robyn kenyatta-reeds, bob carducci-reeds,fl, kent carter and steve swallow-db, milford graves and barry altschul-drums, carla bley-composer track#1

this was ripped to 192kbsmp3 (rapidshare)

Used to have this album, about 40(?) years ago when I was a student. Couldn't really get on with it - preferred the later JCOA stuff but interesting to have the chance to hear it again.

Like anon I had this record more years ago than I can remember. I think I was attracted to the design on the cover, there were several recordings put out by Fontana with similar designs (probably the same artist). I'll find it interesting to here it again. Thanks for the post.

Thank you ; I enjoyed it, reminded me of the later Alan Silva's large ensembles. Very intense and nice sound.

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING. YOU ARE A MAN OF IMPECCABLE TASTE SIR. i'm the guy who goes on jazz forums and says: if they're famous , ignore them [miles, weather report, etc.... blahhhhhgghhh! ] and keep looking for the real treasure. you are a great help in that pursuit. and i am grateful.

Thanks for a superb selection of otherwise unavailable music!

I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to locate this album for a couple of years and missed it when it was available here.

Could you possibly repost it?

Thanks again.

'just discovered this blog which is so amazingly rich.
and thank you!
I'm excited by the reference to Alan Silva and hopefully you'll post this one again sometime soon.

I would also like to jump in to beg you to re-post this album. I was reluctant to do so at first, especially since I've already grabbed so much from your site, but why not? All those tough to find Fontana releases seem to be pretty impressive...
