Philip Glass: "Glassworks", Opening und Floe

Terry Riley: "In C"

Wayne Horvitz European Orchestra ~ BimHuis ~ 4th October 2014


A very interesting set from the Wayne Horvitz European Orchestra, exploring the full scale, range and colour of the instrumentation, and making a strong case for free music rooted in big band and swing. Definitely one to return to frequently.

Another great broadcast from the Italian radio station RAI3, one of the most interesting broadcasters of jazz & improvised music.

Wadada Leo Smith Golden Quartet / Roscoe Mitchell & Mike Reed Duet - Théâtre du Châtelet, 19th October 2015



Here's a recording from France Musique of a concert earlier this week at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the AACM. Two sets, the first from Wadada Leo Smith's Golden Quartet, and the second a duet between Roscoe Mitchell and Mike Reed. Thoroughly excellent, especially the blistering performance by Roscoe Mitchell.

I've not done much editing into separate pieces, mainly because the radio presenter speaks over the intro and outro, and at various times to remind the radio audience who is playing. It's only a minor distraction however.

HOHE UFER KONZERTE + 1 (1976/77)








I got this rip through a kind trader - THANK YOU!! - and I post it as I've received it (only a tiny bit of manual declicking).

Here is a loose translation of the cover's text:

"The "alta ripa" group (Günter Christmann, Johannes Goebel and Gunter Lage) was formed to create a place in Hannover, were they could be presented unusual forms of dance, theater, text, new music, improvisation, new jazz a.o.
In cooperation with the Hannoverschen Künstlerverein and with the help of the ministry of science and arts [region of Niedersachsen - in the nothern part of Germany], monthly Hohe Ufer concerts were held in the historical museum of Hannover.
Parts of the program were held also in three other cities.
The surprising success of the presentation gave the motive for the publication of this LP."

The last piece "Tanka" is from another LP - probably released by the city of Langenhagen, which is located near Hannover.

The lyrics on track 4 are from the german painter Kurt Schwitters.
His activites were far broader than only painting - dada, surrealism, poetry, sound, sculpture, graphic design, typography and installation art. Most famous he is for his collages called "Merz Pictures".

CARLA BLEY, MICHAEL MANTLER AND STEVE LACY- JAZZ REALITIES 1966


Here's a repost of a post from the early days of the blog. The text below is as it was posted back then. New links have been added at the bottom of the comments section.

And now the same aforementioned friend brings us his rip of yet another mid sixties classic. Again taken from a well loved and played record. All the tunes here are C. Bley's save for Communications#7 which was recorded in Baarn, Holland, on 11th of january 1966.

tracklist:

1/ Doctor
2/ Oni Puladi
3/ J.S.
4/ Walking Batterie Woman
5/ Closer
6/ Communication No 7

Mike Mantler: trumpet;
Steve Lacy: soprano;
Carla Bley: piano;
Kent Carter: bass;
Aldo Romano: drums.

Fontana 1966/1990

My friend feels this is a very special record, with which I can only concur as I've said elsewhere. This entire Phillips series ,was briefly reissued (for about 2 minutes) in Japan, first on vinyl in the early eighties and then cd for even less time in the early 90's. Those are now very high ticket items which I certainly cant afford. When will larger lables ever learn that there is a market for this stuff? I'd be the first to replace worn vinyl and rips from same, but I'm sure as hell not prepared to fork out up to USD 150 for a used cd.

 Just to add briefly to the last paragraph, the files are from the 1990 cd.
