New Movements in Jazz disc 1 ,1987, ICP orchestra plays Herbie Nichols (radio nederlands transcription service, 87.073/076) FLAC and LAME

Here’s some more icp , recorded live in 1983 and preserved by the netherlads radio transcription service, subsequently released as disc 1 of a 4 lp set called ‘new movements in jazz’. This is for J a friend who likes his Herbie Nichols. I have unfortunately not been able to find any references to this set on line, nor can I find appropriate scans or photos , my scanner is broken and I simply cannot afford to replace it. If anyone owns this and would like to share some scans of the extensive notes that go with the package ,please do so in the comments. I’ll be uploading the other lp’s in the set soon.

this is a particular favourite of mine ,as good as Nichols repertory gets, all of the arrangements are by mengelberg. By icp standards this may strike some as being too reverentially straight. I guess it hinges on just how much one likes nichols’s music . The info is not included in the files

Thanks you so much, Sotice! the music of Nichols is good hands!!. (I have Change of Season with Misha, Lacy, Bennik, Lewis & Gorter, probably this is better)

I've just listed my MINT- copy of this box set on eBay:

it was the blue that got me said...

I saw them perform this live a few years back, and it was excellent. But then again, I seem to love everything ICP. Looking forward to hearing this version since many of the players are different than when I heard it. Thanks for sharing!
