    A mistitled though decent enough set IMO. I found only one or 2 of the tunes on the 2 CD version (contains Part 1 & II) that me, myself and I would consider as spiritual jazz.

    I only need to look at my bandcamp collection on the site, to see that of the albums I own in vinyl format, over 80% were purchased elsewhere. Am well aware of the pricing differences and how it seems to work, but it is what it is; I can usually find it cheaper somewhere else.

    Peter Brotzmann/Heather Leigh: Sparrow Nights This is awesome. Not the forceful manic playing we have come to expect from Brotzmann. Heather Leigh plays peddle steel. I will buy the CD, as it contains 4 more tracks than the vinyl version, including the majestic closing track "The Longer We're Apart". https://trostrecords.bandcamp.com/album/sparrow-nights

    I was wrong. Looked back through my transactions, and did in fact buy the vinyl from the bandcamp site. Cost me $39 US all up. $19 US for shipping.
  5. Now sold to Bunno77. Thanks Shane for the promotion, but you are right. A great example of vinyl done well.

    Most artists on bandcamp that sell vinyl charge way excessive shipping for vinyl. I ordered it elsewhere, but can’t recall where at the minute.
  7. Lol, I expected a reply like that from you Shane. But thanks anyway. Nah, going to sell. Have only been playing jazz on vinyl for a while now, hope this finds a worthy home.

    Harriet Tubman: The Terror End Of Beauty Certainly one of the best 3 or 4 albums of 2018 IMO, and I am playing the vinyl version which finally arrived last week. Harriet Tubman are a bass, drums, and guitar trio who are well worth checking out. Available on bandcamp.

    I haven’t been posting much of late, but as always, am always devouring as much music as I can, when I can, and most of it is jazz related. This 4CD box set just arrived, and it contains 4 albums. “Ultima” (1997), ”Remember To Forget” (recorded the day after the aforementioned album) , “The Other Side” (2000) , and “On Reade Street” from 2006. I’ve long considered William Parker and Hamid Drake as masters of bass and drums respectively, but as a rhythm section I consider them near untouchable in the free/avant- garde world. Norwegian Sax player Frode Gjerstad might not be as well known, but he plays with the spirit of the mighty Ornette, and is a powerhouse player in his own right. I’m playing Ultima at the minute and loving every minute of it. https://www.allaboutjazz.com/ultima-frode-gjerstad-cadence-jazz-records-review-by-derek-taylor.php?width=1600
  12. Looks very nice. The Lenco's are indeed great tables.
  13. Not much interest of late, so am withdrawing the listing. Thanks to buyers one and all.

    In Between The Tumbling A Stillness Assif Tsahar/William Parker/Hamid Drake Hopscotch Records I had to order this record from Sax player Assif Tsahar himself because the Hopscotch Records site is a shambles. Hadn't heard it, but it garnered a 5 star review on the freejazzblog site. And Parker and Drake are involved so an easy decision to purchase. A superb release from 2018.
