Mea culpa. Sorry about the above, my photography skills leave much to be desired. Plus I was in a hurry. Plus I’m lazy.

The green cd is Jim Black ‘Splay’ with Hilmar Jennson, Chris Speed (yay!) and Skuli Sverrison on bass and “ black box with glowing screen and attachables”. I really like Black’s work and the Winter & Winter label.

The other is Tony Malaby with Willam Paker, Nasheet Waits and Wadada Leo Smith. I bought this directly from Tony and it’s his home made effort and I don’t know how widely distributed it was.

Interesting cover.  What is it?

Blackstar, Bowie’s surprising last hurrah as a paen to the avante-garde and free jazz with Donny McCaslin honking out his best Ken Vandermark and Bowie adding so many layers it’s dizzying. I know some may disagree but they’d be wrong to dismiss it. This is the only Bowie I own and one of only a few records from the rock side of things.
