a very busy summer is drawing to a near close, and i've been very busy buying Â lots of cd's.
larry coryell - tricycles
Â a beautifully played and recorded cd by one of the great jazz guitarists. larry played here this summer and it was a jaw-dropping show.
vienna art orchestra - highlights live in vienna 1989
Â if you're a fan of carla bley, gil evans, mingus and the like, you can't go wrong with this.
kevin coyne - sanity stomp
Â i've had this on vinyl for years, but it's nice to have this 2 record set on one cd. features r wyatt on drums and keyboards on what was the second record.
julie miller - blue pony
pip pyle's equip out - self titled
mccoy tyner - tender moments
charlie feathers - self titled
Â one of the original memphis rockabilly maniacs, this is a 1990 recording.
pere ubu - st arkansas
james carter - the real quietstorm
Â one of the new young jazz stars. this guy is a monster on all manner of saxes and styles.
wayne horvitz - this new generation
peter blegvad - hangmans hill
miles davis - live at the fillmore east march 1970
joe cocker - with a little help from my friends
joe cocker - joe cocker!
Â newly remastered, and they were dirt cheap. i couldn't resist.
don rooke - atlas travels
Â don rooke is the leader and main composer of the henry's, one of canada's finest and least known bands. he plays a kona and slide guitar, and their four cd's feature vocal contributions from mary margaret o'hara, another canadian national treasure. Â this is a solo outing, and while not quite as stunning as the henry's, is still very nice
gov't mule - live-with a little help from our friends
Â a four cd set of a new years eve show. just good old guitar rock, with covers of black sabbath, humble pie, hendrix, robert johnson, john coltrane, and originals.
tin hat trio - memory is an elephant
butterfield blues band - live
Â this arrived in the mail last week. a rhino handmade release, this is a limited edition of 2,500 copies, available only through their website. the original 2 lp set is complete on the first cd, with a second cd of previously unreleased music from the same show. this has always been one of my favorite butterfield records, and although a fairly costly purchase, worth every cent.
wes martin - 3 pound universe
Â i had never heard of this guy, but it's produced by david torn, a frisell/fripp/kaiser type guitarist, and it's on the late great cmp label from germany. it reminds me a lot of the sylvian/fripp cd's, but with an american bent. plus it was only 3 bucks, so it was worth the gamble. i've had terrible cups of coffee that cost more, so there you go.
Â a rather long-winded post, but there is no fun in casual worship.
