    Very different from what one might expect from a Corsano outing. Michael Flower is brilliant.

    Livio Minafra -- La Dolcezza Del Grido (Pino's son reminds me of Sergey Kuryokhin, love 'em both.)

    Got my Corbett vs. Dempsey order in today with 3 great albums. This one is outstanding. Mats Gustafsson wrote the very enthusiastic, informative liners of this album. Free jazz that sounds like it was recorded this year, but incredibly in 1964!

    Another new one from Corbett vs. Dempsey. Another no brainer also. Disc one made up tracks from the 54 disc ICP box and a Dutch promo box from '69, both unlikely to ever sit on my shelves, and disc 2 previously unreleased. And of course the music is as great as one would expect. If anything, some of it is tamer then I thought it would be, not to suggest it's lame. Beautiful packaging which is kind of standard with C v. D. [​IMG]

    This record is right up my alley, 33 minutes of perfection and I can't stop listening to it the last few days. It reminds me of The Necks, very repetitive and hypnotic. Although there are a ton of musicians involved, the music is never too busy. There is a great atmosphere with sounds coming from all over the place. The first track sets the stage, then picks up nicely in the last few minutes, but the second track is serious business... 4 minutes in, an serious beat picks up that never relents, and they just keep adding layers to it until the very end. Amazing.

    Last of the most recent batch of Corbett vs. Dempsey releases, this '96 recording of Cecil Taylor in Berlin, featuring the immense Sunny Murray on drums. A great, if typical, late period Cecil performance. If you love him(who doesn't), then you'll love this.

    Giannis Arapis: electric guitar
    Vilhelm Bromander: double bass
    Vangelis Dimos: drums

    I've only listened to a few records from this label, but what I've heard so far has been excellent. This is a really nice 25 minute session with Arapis leading the way. His guitar sounds fantastic, pretty clean and easy to follow.

    Big fan of everyone in this group, so quite upset that I missed the earlier cd releases by this great ensemble, but at least I got this. Very ECM'ish, and I mean that in the best way possible. The Bandcamp description is spot on. For those who don't mind DL's and a little mellowness in their avant stylings, this one fits the bill.
