    Quite the nice selection of Ella tunes, and sounds pretty good.

    One of my preferred BN albums.
    I have read that La Roca (Sims) had become an attorney at law.
    Does anyone know any stories about this side of his life?

    I don't know anything beyond that, but kudos to him for going into law. I really like his playing on this album, along with Henderson and Swallow, and particularly Kuhn.

    In musical terms I would call it "sampling".

    If you like this You must get "love Love" by Julian Priester on ECM. Lots of crazy echo plex and cosmic fireworks, With really weird grooves. It's fantastic.

    It's an obvious nod. A "riff" as folks around here might say. An appreciative homage for jazz Fans who are in on the joke. Do you know the joe Jackson album
    Someone mentioned above?

  12. Well my private opinion is when an artist has a good Idea we should respect it. Today too many good Ideas are simply covered because the creativity is not there. I have seen many LP covers only slightly changed but the fundamental Idea was stolen. Its only correct to ad a credit (or a comment) when someone uses the Idea of an other artist. If other members see it different we have to live with that attitude.

    Whe could also open a new seach and find similar cases which can be documented here.

    I'm not sure I understand. An homage is something that references another thing with respect. We showed many examples of jazz cover art like these in this thread a couple months ago, like a game. Search the thread you'll find it. This was very recent. Some other examples are "dare is a dark side" by Redman and "days of wine and roses"
    By the dream syndicate. Have you seen the "body and soul" album
    Cover by Joe Jackson?

    These are all riffs on famous album Artwork. Much like a guitarist could play a riff from a Charlie Parker solo. These are references for knowing fans to spot and share in the connection to the past along w the artist. making a note or comment on the album sleeve is like explaining a joke, which is never very fun.

    More from Anthony Braxton (Quartet) New Haven 2014

    Disc 4

    Braxton on 6 different saxophones (no clarinets) with Taylor Ho Bynum on 5 different brass instruments, Nels Cline on electric guitar & Greg Saunier on drums.

    From a non-Braxtonophile perspective this has been an endlessly fascinating listen. 4 continuous 57 to 63 minute group improvisations that never wane.

    There's an Italian horror film (Mario Bava's 'Lisa and the Devil', with Telly Savalas, Elke Sommer & Alida Valli) that uses a version of the Adagio with piano instead of guitar. Unless I just imagined that....

    I bought this a couple months ago as a download on Amazon, still available I think for $8.99. Not bad for 60+ songs.
