Anybody know anything about this?



Says it was recorded just 5 days removed from the Montreux Festival live album with Gomez and DeJohnette, by the German producer who also did Oscar Peterson's "Exclusively For My Friends" series. Sounds promising. I don't know if this is truly a new issue or something of dubious provenance...

Gonna get it - DeJohnette with Evans is of interest!

That producer dude btw founded MPS, a great European jazz label, offering so much more than those (fine) OP albums (there's even substantially more - and better! - by OP too).

Now you've got me more interested. The Exclusively... series is my favorite OP so far, more than the "Songbook" studio albums or the Telarc Blue Note series. I see there are two albums of Exclusively... "Lost Tapes" which are rather hard to find, and a number of other albums from around 1970... "Great Connection" looks like a good start? Oh and "Tracks". Looks like all of these are out-of-print and I will have to buy used...

But I'd also like to repeatedly stress that MPS has done so much more than Peterson (whose playing I really enjoy as you can see from the above, but whom I'd not rate as an essential favourite of mine at all, nonetheless) - their catalogue includes great music by Martial Solal, Cecil Taylor, the Kenny Clarke-Francy Boland Big Band, Hans Koller and many, many others!

I never said thank you for this - but thanks so much, it is a great resource & it helps setting my priorities! Just purchased "Tracks" and "Sonny Stitt Sits In". (Along with "Mingus at Antibes".)

Arve Henriksen is amazing. Get this.



World of Glass is next on my list, but unfortunately, unless you want to ship from Norway, it is only available as an MP-3 album.

I enjoy the album. I don't think it's in the upper echelon of his recordings, but it is all well played, arranged, interesting and enjoyable to listen to. The live solo collection that was released before this was a big bite to chew on, so in a way it is nice to have something lighter to listen to from him and his compadres.

Nice haul!

The Vijay Iyer may be my top jazz album of the year ... Roscoe Mitchell's double one on ECM is a strong contender, but it's so much less accessible and due to the amount of music (and the density/complexity of it all) it's really not an easy one to take in.

The Brahem is gorgeous, the Lloyd is lovely (one of his best actually, I think - I'll always remain ambiguous about him, but this is a strong one for sure!), and the Jaco is just wonderful to have - the band and the repertoire are known by now (Birthday Concert, two Vols. from Japan, the Warner studio albums ... to, me, the "Birthday Concert" was the way in, opening with that terrific version of "The Chicken").

The Berne is in my cart (not sure I went through and ordered by now or not), the others I thought I'll skip ... there are more ECM albums from this year that I did get though: Craig Taborn, Aaron Parks, Django Bates ... what else? The Taborn I enjoyed, the other two not so much by now, but the Bates seems to have some more promise, the Parks is a bit tame and alas I found it quite boring, post Bill Evans impressionist piano trio jazz ... and the presence of Billy Hart alas makes not that much of a difference I found - but these are first impressions only.

Yes, but the sound on this one is vastly improved - magnificent, in fact.

Story:
https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/jun/08/lost-1963-john-coltrane-album-discovered

Yowzah!

This is from March 6, the day before Coltrane's quartet cut the album with Johnny Hartman ... not sure what to expect, studio sessions for Impulse between "Coltrane" and "Crescent" tended to be a bit on the tame side (not complaining, there's beautiful stuff on the softie trilogy and then there's "Alabama", which is about as powerful as it gets) - would be cool if this turned out to be kind of a missing link ...

Yowzah indeed! Can't wait to hear this one. It's startling to think that there is still previously-unissued stuff being discovered, especially for an artist who, like several others (Dylan, Hendrix, Charlie Parker, the Beatles, etc.), inspires his fans' desire to see his every recorded fart and belch put onto disc. You'd think the vaults would be thoroughly scoured by now.

Interesting cover photo: someone unfamiliar with the music might think Coltrane was a drummer ...

There is a new, fancily packaged/marketed issue, "Nightconcert," of Erroll Garner and his trio playing a midnight set in I think Amsterdam. I might put it on my Christmas list to find out how it is with no risk.
