    I love Cannonball's Riversides (and earlier Savoy and EmArcy recordings), but I hate comps like that. Sorry.

    I'm with you Hans, I'm not a comp guy either for the most part, it's a nice slab that needed some spin time.

    Don Cherry And The Jazz Composer’s Orchestra – Relativity Suite (JCOA Records, Virgin, UK, 1974)

    [​IMG]

    Originally released in ’73, this is UK pressing where it was 1st released in ’74. This album was my introduction to Don Cherry. I see no colors, could not make sense of the picture on the cover, so just bought it. It blew my mind, left me speechless and move-less for the duration of the album. I can’t point my finger on what exactly captivates me about Don Cherry and his music: he doesn’t overwhelm with technique, not here at least, but when he “sings” I listen. Amazing player and terrific album.

    The concert had a second half, with an orchestra conducted by Al Cohn. Probably there was a label intention to release that second half as volume two.

    But looks like Bill wasn't happy with the results so that music was never released.

    Charlie Haden's playing in particular is astounding on this track.

    I just got my copy this week - inspired to purchase by your post. Great disc! Gourley has such a unique style, light and swinging, and the band is as you said right on the job. Wonder whatever happened to Ralph Moore? Truly great tenor player, distinctive tone, all over in the 1980s and 1990s and in heavy company (Hutcherson, JJ Johnson)...and then?

    Thanks for posting on this one!

    Storyville Masters Of Jazz - Duke Ellington (Storyville) CD

    18 track compilation that includes a mix of live and studio recordings. I'm guessing most tracks are previously unreleased recordings.

    The sleeve notes say "Many of the sources were private tapes, acetates transcriptions, or other media..."

    There are two lengthy Duke Ellington solo piano pieces, both recorded in France on 25th February 1966. All other tracks include the Orchestra, and were recorded over 4 different dates.

    7 tracks were recorded in New York (9th January 1962)

    3 in New York (3rd & 4th April 1943)

    3 at Carnegie Hall (December 11th 1943)

    3 at the Hollywood Empire, Los Angeles (February 1949)

    The sound on the CD is generally crystal clear. The music was produced for CD by Anders Stefansen.

    From this week's online CD bargains, North African influences on the Jazz Beat....

    To Morocco - Klaus Doldinger's Passport (Warner Music Group) CD

    Dated 2006

    I have taken a liking to some aspects of the (discounted) Passport albums I have heard lately. This one does, as expected, conjure up images of Morocco at times, and that is fine with me! At other times we are into more Jazz fusion territory coupled with a very strong production. This seems to be the case with the couple of other Doldinger albums that I've heard.

    Further off the beaten Jazz Beat track, but keeping that African influenced Jazzy vibe going with the sound of Senegal's premier Orchestra...

    Stunning album! I remember that the year after McLaughlin has come to Italy for some concerts featuring Jack Bruce, Stu Martin and Billy Cobham. Unfortunately, I didn't have the pleasure of hearing them.

    Dolphy was always pushing the envelope. His playing was never more adventurous and exciting than on this set.

    Love this album. I saw The One Truth Band in Chicago with L. Shankar, Stu Goldberg, TM Stevens & Woody “Sonship” Theus along with The Billy Cobham Band one of my all-time favorite concerts next to Mahavishnu. Hard to believe it was 40 years ago.
