« Kalaparusha »
Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre, reeds
Karl Berger, vibes & piano
Ingrid, vocal
Tom Schmidt, bass
Jack DeJohnette (+Jumma Santos), drums

Trio Records (1977)

Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre was a musician closely linked to the AACM movement in Chicago and then to the Loft Jazz scene in New York...
This is an excellent album  :)

Looks like an excellent album.

Surprisingly, I know Ingrid (Sertso). She, her husband Karl Berger, and Jack DeJohnette all live in the vicinity of Woodstock, NY, which is just under an hour's drive from me.

I've just booked up a concert 'Julian Bliss Septet' at Bayham Abbey (which is local for us) for 31st July.

That looks great! The setting looks like it would add a lot, too.

Couple of good recent acquisitions:


Two Programs: The ICP Orchestra Performs Thelonious Monk and Herbie Nichols. This is freewheeling and fun; btw I've heard too many Monk tributes and it takes a lot for one to "move the needle".


This is played very much in a "classical" style, which is really interesting.

And this...I took advantage of a silly Walmart pricing error  ;) and have started in on the set (roughly 5 CDs worth of material). Will take a considerable amount of time to digest.

Just after I arrived at a secondhand record store yesterday they put on Miles' Nefertiti album and I chose to stay long enough to hear it right through.

On the way out I said how much I'd enjoyed hearing it again and they told me that a couple of customers had complained. :(

All first listens, as nearly everything is for me these days since I have so much catching up to do. ::)

The Tyner is nice, and will certainly get more plays. I was less enamored of the Attias, which despite a great lineup just didn't impress me that much (certainly not as much as his earlier album Credo, which I love).

Another stellar lineup on the Formanek (Tim Berne, Craig Taborn, Gerald Cleaver), and it has a compelling power that kind of grew on me as I listened. Need to listen again (as well as to the quartet's earlier The Rub and Spare Change).

Excellent! I have a boatload of RRK recordings, and this is one of the best. Incredible all-star rhythm section as well, Jaki Byard is a favorite with his inimitable comping style.
Going to have to bust this out later:



Many of Rahsaan's live '70s recordings kind of run together and are for completists only, but this one smokes.

Any so-called ‘music lover’ that doesn’t love Miles Davis' ‘Second Great Quintet’ period needs to be thrown out of the store. If someone complained to me, after I played Nefertiti, I’d put on either Miles Smiles or Sorcerer just to piss them off even further. :D

The record shop (new/used CD/vinyl, used books) I patronize (only one possibility, though there are 2 branches) plays eclectic stuff, the 2 jazz performers I offhand recall hearing are Albert Ayler :laugh: and Jaki Byard.
But most of the customers seem to be college kids, not many "moldy figs" there.
