    What's remarkable about this is that with so many guitars going on at the same time it should sound like a big cluster f stew. But it never does. On the other hand it never sounds not spontaneous either. I don't know how Rudolph pulls it off.

    Sun Ra - Artyard In a Box.

    ....space is the place!

    I guess it's not the place to start with SR, but if you're in the mood for some intergallactical 70s/80s stuff this is it :)

    I've been spending the past weeks buying way more music than I should have. Here's a couple of them.

    [​IMG]
    Börje Fredriksson - Progressive Moments. Difficult to find CD, not available on any of the streaming services as far as I know, and never seen on eBay.
    There's one on Amazon I believe, but seller doesn't seem to ship outside of Germany.
    Finally managed to get this one after responding very quickly to a Discogs Want-List email.

    [​IMG]
    G.L. Unit - Orangutang! Here's another rather rare album that I didn't want to live without. I'm not a vinyl collector, but sometimes I make exceptions. This is one of them.

    [​IMG]
    Joe McPhee / Jerome Bourdellon - Octoblue
    The Joe McPhee Bandcamp page is a great source of great music and this one is no exception.

    [​IMG]
    Marker - Roadwork 1 / Roadwork 2 / Homework 1. I managed to snag the 3-CD box, released in a quantity of 140. (Digital download available at Catalytic Sounds and Ken Vandermarks Bandcamp pages.)
    Probably my favorite release so far in 2018. I loved their debut album and this follow-up is a fantastic document of a group that is really on a roll. Hope to hear much more from them in the months and years to come.

    Am I the only one who does not appreciate Freeform Jazz?....Ya know...where they could never play the same thing twice? Is it a crime to like structured jazz....a beginning, middle and end...kinda of like the band members know where the hell they're going...?

    I listen to the likes of Boney James and Dave Koz....seen them in concert and really love their music....to name a couple of what I like...

    Rodrigo Amado, Kent Kessler, Paal Nilssen-Love - The Abstract Truth.
    This is a GREAT release from some years back. Highly recommended intense free jazz.

    Rusty box with 18 cds and a fat booklet. Happy to own this one. Found in a tiny record store and bought for almost nothing :)

    Currently listening to Steve Coleman - Live at the Village Vanguard. Great music and great recording.

    It’s in my playlist for the upcoming week. I suspect it’s a great one.

    In my download list for when I get back home from vacation. Heard Coleman with most of those musicians recently at the Vanguard (I go to NYC several times/year, always try to get some live jazz), it was an outstanding session. Jonathan Finlayson is a fantastic trumpeter!

    There’s something about Finlayson’s sound and tone that I really really like.

    I'll have to give the new Coleman a listen. He's so universally praised but I've never gotten into him. He's always struck me as someone who over intellectualizes jazz, but of course that's just putting words to taste. I feel the same thing about Vijay Iyer, but I probably should give him more of a chance too.

    Agree about Iyer. I got bored by Far From Over quicker than I would’ve thought and I haven’t returned to it for some time now. I understand his brilliance and I can hear it, but sometimes it’s just too perfect.

    What about Functional Arrhythmias with Coleman? I really like that one.

    On Iyer, I like "Far From Over," but IMO "Break Stuff" is more engaging among his output in the last few years. As for Steve Coleman, I've had mixed experiences both live and recorded, but I'm liking him more again. The session at the Vanguard a couple of months ago was edge-of-seat stuff. And "Morphogenesis" delivers.

    This sax magician makes me forget for a time my beloved trumpet gods... Incredibly fluid craftmanship with each note born without forceps...
