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.

A much warmer and sunnier day in the end and tomorrow will be as good from the forecasts. I will be travelling early to do a coffee shop visit in Canterbury, then up to Whitstable for a food retailer visit and then Ashford for a pub food and drink visit.

So an earlier night to bed.

A couple of CD's came in the post today - three classic jazz albums -

I have listened to both already .. excellent British jazz from the sixties and seventies.

Another dank dreary day in which we had a combination of cold winds, rain and occasional sleet Bitterly cold infact.

So after the lie-in and a quick nip to the supermarket to get some food the rest of the day has been spent listening to music, the radio or reading.

Oh and i also received through the post yesterday a CD by Spring Heel Jack called Amassed featuring Han Bennink , Evan Parker, John Edwards and Matthew Shipp amonst others.

One of the tracks from the album.

Spring Heel Jack - Lit

I did not get to the city centre when i arrived in Canterbury because the supermarket is a direct line south away from the centre going to Wincheap end of the city and is a fifteen minute walk each way from the rail station. Once i had done my mystery shop i just caught the train back to Sittingbourne. I can always visit the centre next week as now i have no more work till after Xmas.

On the way to the city i did have a good forty minutes in Faversham (awaiting trains) which gave me time to look around and i am glad i did.I popped into the Fleur Bookshop on the pretext that i was buying a book and amazingly found eight jazz CD's for 50 pence each!

Image may contain: 4 people

Some of these are well over ten pounds even second hand so i was gobsmacked by my good fortune.

Amongst other reviews is one of the Norwegian metal band Wardruna.

Following on the BBC Radio 3 River of Music day on Sunday of continuous music.

More musical bifurcations -

Henry Purcell - Passacaglia from King Arthur

An astonishing performance by the English Concert and Choir, conducted from the harpsichord by Trevor Pinnock, shining with emotional and technical perfection. I felt nothing but pure euphoria when listening to their recording of Henry Purcell's semi-opera King Arthur, Z 628, 1691, and especially from the hauntingly beautiful Passacaglia from Act IV.

Time to funk it up a bit

Fela Kuti Africa 70 and Ginger Baker - Let's Start

Originally recorded in 1971 and 1978 by Fela Kuti’s band, Africa 70, with the addition of former Cream drummer Ginger Baker, this album contains 4 songs plus a bonus track 16-minute drum duet between Baker and Africa 70’s drummer Tony Allen recorded at the 1978 Berlin Jazz Festival.
Let’s Start: ‘Let us start what we’ve come into the room to do’ is telling it as it is — graphic explicit sex. Sung in Yoruba with some broken English explanations, Fela calls on his partner in the room to get on with it, ‘don’t play the innocent…let’s start! Take off your clothes! Let’s start!’. The recording has Ginger Baker, of the former English pop group ‘Cream’ playing live as guest drummer on some tracks like Let’s Start, in place of Tony Allen, the regular drum player in Fela’s Africa 70 band. The Album titled ‘Live with Ginger Baker’ was recorded in the sixteen track mobile studio Ginger Baker sold to Polygram Nigeria in 1976.
