It was a wonderful relaxing day ending up in a meet with Phil at our local Spoons pub last night. Today i am back tn the fray again.Having done two visits already,one in Hempstead Valley and a pub food and drink visit in Maidstone , soon i shall be heading off to Canterbury via Faversham.

I have received for payments from companies i work for as well.So i have ordered this box set (on Amazon) of all of Ornette Coleman's Atlantic Recordings.

Beauty is a Rare Thing: The Complete Atlantic Recordings




Ornette is mentioned in the Wire Primers book ,and this set is highly recommended and only £26! This is one of the six discs on the set - which can be purchased individually, Free Jazz LP.

Another mixed bag of tracks from the collection -

First track is from a CD  I have had for many years  and coincidentally there is an article about the guy in the current Wire mag, so here is one of the sound sculptures from my CD -

Harry Bertoia - Unfolding



He called his constructions sonambient sculptures.

A member of the AACM is Muhal Richard Abrams and the title track from Blu Blu Blu.



Next up, Usha Uthup and Fever, from the "Usha in Nairobi" LP that i sold today.



And finally the Roscoe Mitchell Sextet - Ornette



Enjou.

I was listening to BBC Radio 6 earlier this day. Iggy Pop has a two hour radio show and today it was called "Sax In The City", which was mostly all jazz. I really enjoyed the programme. Here are just some of the tracks he played, all from hs own personal collection. What a cool dude -

Pharoah Sanders - Upper and Lower Egypt Part 2




Dexter Gordon - Scrapple From The Apple



Archie Shepp - Blase



That last track is so powerful, free jazz at its most eloquent.
