Ditto, daddy-o, ditto. I feel the same way about Tom Rainey.

And then there’s this.

Thanks Dre. Since Hamid and Rudolph will be playing together at Guelph, I sent that link to the program organizers asking if they could arrange an additional festival concert with Gregorio joining Rudolph and Drake as a trio. That certainly would be something to see/hear.

I’m a big Liebman fan ever since he released his holy trinity: Lookout Farm, Sweet Hands and Drum Ode.

Moving on, this from Malcolm Goldstein, who will also be at Guelph.

I had forgotten about Jeff Tweedy’s participation in the Boxhead projects.

Boxhead Ensemble

“Review: Two Brothers (2001)

With Two Brothers a few things happen.  1) Some big names show up in the credits.  2) The songs are recorded in a studio rather than live in front of an audience.  3) From this point on things are never this good again.   

Two Brothers sounds like there is a little more direction happening from Krassner.  Themes or melodies may even be written out at this point and it may be the strongest album in the catalogue.  The second track "From This Point Onward" is a gorgeous and lumbering piece and again, it's Lonberg-Holm gluing all the necessary parts together with the happy surprise of Guillermo Gregorio playing alto sax and clarinet beautifully.  Two Brothers is meant to be a meditation on the American Civil War but the subject matter is generally useless to the listener.  If you've got a long drive across the midwest or southern U.S. and a relatively quiet car, listen to this.  It's perfect driving music.  Also, perfect for a quiet morning twilight, breakfast and a loved one. “

One of the best Frith recordings, imho.

Does Coltrane count?  If so, then:

I don’t know where to put this, probably here but maybe Classical, or other? It’s a mixed bag but it’s a hip mixed bag I can assure you.

Had to double back to spin Ingrid and Tom again. They’re all I listened to this weekend - think Old and New Dreams era Dewey Redman and Ed Blackwell. Delicious.
