Looks like a great order. Let me know what you think of the Catney and LoCascio recordings when you get them. We knew them both and got to hear them often when we lived in Houston.

We're just back from several days in New York and trying to get everything straightened out here. Would very much like to meet you soon. Maybe on a Saturday or Sunday later this month. We'll let you know.

What a great list of purchases. Good mix of styles and artists.
Bet you hate people recommending new things to buy but I have to suggest these two. For a gentle yet musically brilliant step into the slightly broader realms of jazz Marty Ehrlich's "Song" is just perfect (see my post at the What are you Listening to thread) Song.The second one is Joe Locke's "Storytelling" where you can hear a great version of Bill Wither's "Hello Like Before" sung by Mark Ledford (ex Pat Metheny) who sadly died very young just a few years ago. Storytelling ... or at the labels UK website

A youtube video of Locke and Ledford performing "Nature Boy" is at

My last order/purchase (I actually have nothing currently on order; haven't bought anything in a couple of weeks, and I'm probably going to be taking it easy for a while as my music spending's been a little out of control): Barre Phillips "Mountainscapes" and Paul Bley/Gary Peacock/Tony Oxley/John Surman "In The Evenings Out There." Iffy on the first, as it pales in comparison to both The Trio's earlier work ("Mountainscapes" is basically a Trio recording), and Surman's subsequent experiments with the synthesizer for ECM. Still, not a bad recording by any means. Enjoy the second quite a bit, as all four players are in fantastic form, especially Peacock. Some of the greatest bass solos committed to tape, I'd say...

I've placed an order of your recommendation of Ehrlich's "Song". Part of his sound reminds me of a duo album I own where John Zorn conducts a small ensemble, mostly hebron traditional tunes, with Zorn's twist. Its sort of fusion work: Bar Kokhba

Perhaps I should do lke you, just take it easy, stop buying, and listen to the piles of discs. The shelves are full, and lots of albums are finding their way to the kitchen. If I don't stop spending money on music, I'll probably end up eating liner notes and plastic cases!

kibblenibbler - if you like 'In the Evenings Out There' you may also like Adventure Playground (under John Surman's name), which is from the same sessions.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 9, 2010 8:29:06 PM PDT
Yim: Surman aficionado that I am, I already own it. Great albums both, aren't they?

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 10, 2010 1:20:15 AM PDT
Yim says:
kibblenibbler - yes, I agree that both are excellent - a great band. You also mentioned Barre Phillips - do you know Time Will Tell and Sankt Gerold by Paul Bley, Barre Bhillips and Evan Parker? I like those a lot too.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 10, 2010 5:06:52 PM PDT
Yim: I already own "Sankt Gerold," and have been seriously thinking about getting "Time Will Tell" also.

- "Jazz Concerto Grosso" - Phil Sunkel's Band (with guests Bob Brookmeyer & Gerry Mulligan).
Was really curious about that one after listening to "Tony Fruscella" (Atlantic, 1955), which I found to be an inspired album, arranged and composed by Phil Sunkel.

- "Our Thing" - Joe Henderson (with Kenny Dorham, Andrew Hill, Eddie Khan & Pete La Roca).

I hear it as far as no money goes. While I've said/noted here before that this or that title was going to be the last thing that I was going to order, the Dixon set is definitely, without qualifications, it. Had I not become aware of it by accident (I am the sole primarily jazz listener in my small circle of friends; the bricks and mortar jazz shop that I go to for most of my purchases is owned by someone who, while carrying a relatively full jazz line, is not that up on the avant garde), I'd be continuing along with what I've been doing recently, which is going back and listening to titles that I've not listened to in years. It's amazing how different/interesting/refreshing things can sound with the passing of time and the change in one's ears and mind during that period. And, I get to save a little money. Still, at $40 aprox. from Amazon UK for 9+ hours of music, none of which I own (but which sounds amazing from the full-length samples on the CAM Jazz- current owners of the Black Saint/Soul Note catalogs- website), I couldn't pass it up...

Oh... Dan: I saw your list on the thread that you mentioned. I see that, indeed, many of the titles in the Dixon box are on it. Maybe this box is a way for you, too, of acquiring them? That said, one possible caveat for a collector might be that, from what I gather, the discs are housed in paper sleeves (which are further housed in a small box/slipcover), that are largely sans original liner notes/Dixon's original liner artwork, and there is no accompanying book or booklet. Still, at $40 or so...

PS: Here's the Amazon UK link for it:

They had two in stock yesterday, when I ordered (leaving one). Got notification that mine shipped; someone else has ordered the remaining one, and it looks like it's on back order now...
