    I'll have to check them out. Thanks Alan.

    I've never managed to get my TV to work through my system. How are you doing it, through the Young or the pre-amp?
    I know it's not normal usage but a problem I've met on modern TVs that was easy on old ones is:-

    Plugging sound only INTO  the tv. Without a video line trigger you have no joy.
    Why? I was in the habit of plugging a potable music player into the back of TVs  but now it seems you can't.
    :/
    What a strange thing to do!
  • Arve Henriksen - Cartography (Hi-Res FLAC)

    Back into Norwegian jazz/ambient/electronica land. I can't get enough of this stuff!

    The album is on your favourite streaming service (along with all things ECM), but here's a live gig with David Sylvian (a guest on the album):

    Nice.
  • Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer: Drum Hat Buddha

    Gorgeous country folk laden with existentialist Buddhism, arthutian legend, written almost as entirely metaphor, but a true American folk performance. Stunning and tragic back story to these two, with Joan Baez speaking of Dave Carter's song writing in the same terms as she does Dylan. Tracy just melts me, especially on 'Disappearing Man'.

    Well worth reading the music matters interview with these two while listening.

    Available on Bandcamp finally (been looking for this CD for seven years!). 10/10 from me.

    It was a habit started when installing audio/video systems and followed on to hotel stays.
    Have to remember to pack a USB drive now.

    It just seems a backward step taking into account our do everything smart-phones, these now need a separate speaker or an adaptor....unless it's a smart TV.

  • Nils Petter Molvær. Live In Hamburg (2001)

    Recorded at Technics JazzPort Festival, Hamburg

    Trumpet - Nils Petter Molvær
    Guitar - Eivind Aarset
    Bass - Audun Erlien
    Drums, Percussion - Rune Arnesen
    Beat Programming - Raymond Pellicer
    Computer [Dj] - Strangefruit   

  • Pharoah Sanders & Sonny Sharrock - Live in Frankfurt 1992 full concert




    Recorded at Deutsches Jazz Festival Frankfurt, Germany, 1st of November 1992. Awesome free jazz.

    Features Pharoah Sanders - saxes, Sonny Sharrock - guitar, Charnett Moffett - bass, and Pheroaan AkLaff - drums.

    1 - Little Rock
    2 - Japan
    3 - Upper And Lower Egypt
    4 - Many Mansions
    5 - Venus
    6 - Mr P.C.

    This is (presumably) the tour that supported Sharrock's towering Ask the Ages album. Pheroaan AkLaff is great, but if only they'd managed to get Elvin Jones to do the tour as well as the album. His drive would have taken this all up another level still.
  • For those of you into Swiss Pianist Nik Baerstch and his various ensembles (loads on YouTube), the good news is that he has a new album just out with Ronin on ECM.



    Nik Bärtsch’s Ronin Awase

    Nik Bärtsch: piano
    Sha: bass clarinet, alto saxophone
    Thomy Jordi: bass
    Kaspar Rast: drums

    +++++ CD / LP / Download / Streaming: https://ecm.lnk.to/7_jRJFP

    “Awase”, a term from martial arts, means “moving together” in the sense of matching energies, a fitting metaphor for the dynamic precision, tessellated grooves and balletic minimalism of Nik Bärtsch’s Ronin. Six years have passed since the last release from the Swiss group. In the interim, trimmed from quintet to quartet size and with new bassist Thomy Jordi fully integrated, Ronin has become a subtly different band. Bärtsch speaks of a new-found freedom and flexibility in the approach to the material, with “greater transparency, more interaction, more joy in every performance”. The freedom here extends to revisiting early Bärtsch modules alongside new compositions including, for the first time on a Ronin record, a piece by reedman Sha.

    Awase was recorded at Studios La Buissonne in the south of France in October 2017 and produced by Manfred Eicher. ECM 2603

  • Addams Family dancing Blitzkrieg Bop by The Ramones



    Hey ho, let's go!
  • Public Image Ltd - Album

    With Ginger Baker on drums and Bill Laswell's usual suspects on everything else. 

    And here's the 12" of Rise, discovered when I was looking for the album on YT:


  • Egberto Gismonti - Kuarup

    Nothing from this is on YT, so you'll have to try to imagine the mixture of modern classical and Brazilian folk music Gismonti conjures up here.
  • John Coltrane - Kulu Se Mama



    For many, Coltrane's last two years of life were when he went off the rails. Having scaled the heights of A Love Supreme, his music exploded into fiery free jazz. It took me until my late 20s to start hearing the majesty of these late albums.

    Yet Kulu Se Mama (particularly its near 19-minute title track) is pretty accessible - particularly to anyone who has loved Alice Coltrane's music, and some of Pharoah Sanders' albums - with a clear 'ethnic' flavour.

    Kulu Se Mama shouldn't be a relatively obscure part of the John Coltrane canon. 
  • Food - Last Supper



    Another slab of fantastic Norwegian electronica meets jazz. One of the albums that got me into this stuff.
  • I haven't listened to PIL in  years!

    Sent me on a PIL, Killing Joke, Flock Of Seagulls etc etc memory lane...should have been working :D
  • It's good for you, Chris. I'm a closet PIL fan and have a good proportion of their albums (didn't like the last one).
  • Kurt Elling - A Happy Thought (from his latest album, The Questions)



    The first song of 2018 to go on serious repeat here.
  • edited May 31
    I've been having a bit of a Miles Davis '70s thing this week. If I was disciplined, I'd have played them in order of recording - a lot of them are live dates - but I played them randomly.

    Much of Miles' best music was created during this period, IMHO, even if it doesn't have the dinner party digestibility of Kind of Blue. I'm often left wondering how this music was created all that time ago. 

    So, what to feature from YT? It has to be this:



    Recorded live at Osaka Festival Hall, Japan, February 1, 1975
    Tracklist:
    A Prelude (Part I)
    B Prelude (Part II) / Maiysha
    C Interlude
    D Theme From Jack Johnson

    Miles Davis (tp, og) Sonny Fortune (ss, as, fl) Pete Cosey (g, syn) Reggie Lucas (g) Michael Henderson (b) Al Foster (dr) Mtume (perc, electronics)

    Miles is not at his best. This and Pangaea - both double albums - recorded the same day in Osaka, were the last we were to hear from Miles until the early 80s, after his dark night of the soul (possibly better summarised as his dark night of the nose  ;) ). But the music is a scalding, boiling cauldron of funk, groove, blues, bop. Blackness. Not in any negative sense, but as Rahsaan Roland Kirk might have called it, Blacknuss.

    I do go on sometimes, don't I? 
  • While I think Agharta is the pinnacle of Miles' electric period, others root for this:



    Close, but no cigar. Not least because this is a mish-mash of lineups that never gets right into the depths of it like the later band.

    Bass – Dave Holland (tracks: A2, A3), Michael Henderson (tracks: A1, B1, C2, D), Ron Carter (tracks: B2, C1)
    Drums – Billy Cobham (tracks: A3), Jack DeJohnette
    Electric Piano, Whistling – Hermeto Pascoal (tracks: A2)
    Guitar – John McLaughlin (tracks: A1 to B1, C2, D)
    Keyboards – Chick Corea (tracks: A2, A3, B2, C1), Herbie Hancock (tracks: A2, B2, C1), Joe Zawinul (tracks: A3), Keith Jarrett (tracks: A2, B2, C1)
    Percussion – Airto Moreira
    Piano – Keith Jarrett (tracks: A1, B1, C2, D)
    Saxophone – Gary Bartz (tracks: A1, B1, C2, D), Steve Grossman (tracks: A2, B2, C1), Wayne Shorter (tracks: A3)
    Sitar – Khalil Balakrishna (tracks: A3)
    Trumpet – Miles Davis
    Vocals – Hermeto Pascoal (tracks: B2, C1)

    Heck. I'm not really sure On The Corner is jazz! I remember when I first borrowed a copy from Birmingham Record Library. I couldn't listen to it. I couldn't figure out what was going on. It sounded so ugly.

    I returned to it again many years later when I bought a secondhand CD very cheaply and gradually got into it.

    It was Michael Henderson's looping, loping, funky bass guitar that was the hook for everything else for me.
  • All the radio's fault!

    An older song by INXS popped forth and lead to me digging out the Listen Like Thieves and Kick albums.

    Saw them on both the supporting tours in the UK.

    A rather unheard of Sinaed O'Conner was in support at the Guildford Civic Hall, which was the first time I heard her Mandinka song, impressive and very different for pop back then. I'm sure a critic described her vocals as being like a Siouxie on steroids! Both INXS concerts were very good, great pop band live. My girlfriend of the time thought Hutchence was "gorgeous", as most the other girls did too, if memory serves.

    I too rate ‘Listen Like Thieves’ and ‘Kick’. Loads of quality tunes on those.
    And yes, hard not to have at least a small man-crush on Mr Hutchence. ;-)

    A bit of choice dub for a beautiful day:



    "Dub is a genre of music which grew out of reggae music in the 1960s, and is commonly considered a subgenre, though it has developed to extend beyond the scope of reggae. Music in this genre consists predominantly of instrumental remixes of existing recordings and is achieved by significantly manipulating and reshaping the recordings, usually by removing the vocals from an existing music piece, emphasizing the drum and bass parts (this stripped down track is sometimes referred to as a 'riddim'). Other techniques include dynamically adding extensive echo, reverb, panoramic delay, and occasional dubbing of vocal or instrumental snippets from the original version or other works.

    And there's part III :smile:



    Check YT for the tracks, which are not in a very useful listing.

     Is that a pic of your back room, Ben?

    I would never own that number of speakers with tiny “woofers”.

    I mean to catch up on your dub listings Dave! Thanks. Want to get in front of the system first...!

    Gone proggy today, this has been an enduring favourite since first listen. The Steven Wilson remix in the link is something I've intended to procure but not done so yet, been told and read great things of his mixing abilities.

    With an intro track verging on disharmony but doesn't actually lose it, maybe Dave will approve!





  • I do like the first track, but I generally say No to Yes (I'll get me coat).
  • @cj66 Chris, you got me thinking about 'an enduring favourite since first listen'.

    Here's one of mine:



    I never tire of it.

    Ahhh, they produced so much wonderous quirkery over the years, ya gotta love at least some of their output.

    Here's another prog album that zapped me from day one, the SQ is really poor on YT so I'll just link the track that did the first gotcha!

    I've always loved the sound of a harpsichord (even keyboard mimicked ) over a piano and you have a rare occurrence of both together....briefly.

    My guess was The Six Wives of Henry VIII. Wasn't too far off.

    One of my school friends was (is still) a fan of Mr W and got me to go along to my first gig - King Arthur On Ice! You does stoopid things in yer yoof!
  • Bitches Brew:



    One of Miles' most well-known albums, yet one of his most difficult. Never really understood that.

    After Talking Heads yesterday (presumably) YT came up with this recommendation:





    TBH, I think there's a better double or single album here, and I don't think any more of it than when it came out. And so I've never owned a copy.
  • YT is still recommending stuff from the 70s and 80s to me. A couple of Indian-related things:

    Shaki, John McLaughlin's band with Indian musicians that he formed after the Mahavishnu Orchestra. 



    And a Don Cherry album from earlier in the decade.



    Get your sandals on and break out the joss sticks. They're both fantastic!
  • If this doesn't put a huge, cheesy grin on your face, nothing will...
