It’s been all about the Braxton Arista box since I got it, but I’ve squeezed in a couple of other things too.
From Mosaic Records. Lots of related text/video/linkery at the link. Unfortunately there is no option but to buy the whole wad on 8 cd’s for three figures, but it’s worth it.
This is stuff from the seventies, Dave Holland and Barry Altschul are all over it, Kenny Wheeler and George Lewis are somewhat all over it, and appearances are made by, among others, Richard Teitelbaum, Henry Threadgill, Leroy Jenkins, Frederic Rzewski, Leo Smith, Muhal Richard Abrams, Roscoe Mitchell, Oliver Lake and other WSQ’ers.
Album titles link to sample-laden purchase pages at various commercial servers.
Monk’s Mood by the Dave Liebman Trio (Adam Nussbaum, Eddie Gomez). These guys are great, and I can’t really say that you shouldn’t go get this, but an album of Monk tunes should be…I don’t know…funnier. It’s like they’re afraid to commit silliness to tape. Also, the emphasis is on mid-tempo, infra-mid-tempo, and meta-infra-mid-tempo, which definitely works against what humor they have. Still, these are great players who are under-represented in my collection.
