great post but where is side a

If you read the post carefully, you will notice that the a-side has been rereleased on the FMP label. We know that the proprietor of the FMP catalogue does not like any FMP records being distributed freely in the open domain. So it was a deliberate decision not to post the a-side, not an accidental oversight.

Hi and thank you so much for the good work!

I believe the whole album is available as a download from FMP, but the sound quality is worse than on your post. Take it as a compliment... :-)

thanks FMP cds are so expensive I wish they were downloadable

Nick said...

Jahrmarkt was included in the FMP retrospective box and the individual CD from the box, but not, so far, as a download. Live In Wuppertal, Pearls and Rumbling are available for download at Destination-Out Bandcamp.

Nick said...

The FMP downloads are available in lots of file formats, sound fine to me and are reasonably priced at $11.49. It's tough to earn a living from free improvisation.

Thank you for posting this!

And also many thanks to those who posted information about the FMP downloads available at Destination Out. I had no idea that this service was available and look forward to hearing the music and sending the money to FMP. Hopefully if enough interest is shown, it will become possible for more of the FMP catalog to be made available as downloads, thereby diverting the cashflow that now goes to individuals selling used FMP CDs and LPs at grossly exploitative prices to those who created the music. I'm sure all readers of Inconstant Sol are familiar with the humorous story told by Steve Lacy about his quartet with Enrico Rava in the late 60s arriving in Argentina to discover huge crowds gathering under the impression that 'Free Music' meant that there would be no price of admission!

Since the subject of artist-supplied downloads has come up, I would like to share my delight for Anthony Braxton's efforts at the Tricentric Foundation page: the music is copious and the price reasonable: from $0.00 to $39.95 --- something for all sizes of wallets and purses to enjoy!
