“I Believe” by The Buzzcocks
Cover by the Lunar Bear Ensemble

In these times of contention it's not my intention to make things plain
I'm looking through mirrors to catch the reflection that can't be mine

I'm losing control now I'll just have to slow down a thought or two

I can't feel the future and I'm not even certain that there is a past
I believe in the worker's revolution

And I believe in the final solution

I believe in
I believe in

I believe in the shape of things to come

And I believe in I'm not the only one

Yes I believe in
, I believe in

When I poison my system I take thoughts and twist them into shapes

I'm reaching my nadir and I haven't an idea of what to do

I'm painting by numbers but can't find the colours that fill you in

I'm not even knowing if I'm coming or going if to end or begin
I believe in the immaculate conception

And I believe in the resurrection

And I believe in
I believe in

I believe in the elixir of youth

And I believe in the absolute truth

Yes I believe in
I believe in
There is no love in this world anymore

There is no love in this world anymore
I've fallen from favour while trying to savour experience

I'm seeing things clearly but it has quite nearly blown my mind

It's the aim of existence to offer resistance to the flow of time

Everything is and that is why it is will be the line

I believe in perpetual motion

And I believe in perfect devotion

I believe in

I believe in

I believe in the things I've never had

I believe in my Mum and my Dad

And I believe in
I believe in
There is no love in this world anymore

There is no love in this world anymore
I'm skippin' the pages of a book that takes ages for the foreword to end

Triangular cover concealing another aspect from view

My relative motion is just an illusion from stopping too fast

The essence of being these feelings I'm feeling I just want them to last
I believe in original sin

And I believe what I believe in

Yes I believe in
I believe in
I believe in the web of fate

And I believe in I'm going to be late

So I'll be leavin'

What I believe in
There is no love in this world anymore

There is no love in this world anymore

There is no love in this world anymore

(Repeat, over & over & over again)

In these times of ongoing madness, I/we keep reaching for song/words to explain what is going on around us. I have been thinking a great deal about what I believe in… Love, Friends, Family, Creative Music and True Freedom of Expression. There has been a tidal wave of Negativity rolling over us for the last few years and it seems to be getting worse. I continue to search for the Positive Light which is found in different types of Inspiration. Certain Special Songs and Creative Music seem to speak to me/us directly to our hearts, minds and souls. I go back to old standards seeking universal truths as well as searching for new sources of inspiration in music that I haven’t heard yet. I try to listen to at least 1 record or CD every day to hear something that I have never heard before, giving a chance for stranger or distant friend to show us his or her sonic world. I find hope in such things and then try to share that with you, all serious listeners.

The above song, “I Believe”, was recorded by the Buzzcocks in the 1979. Although, I did hear some songs by the Buzzcocks back then, I didn’t really notice this song until it was covered by the Lunar Bear Ensemble several years later. From the late seventies until around the time DMG opened in 1991, I wrote for Jersey Beat Fanzine. There is where my music writing really flourished so a hats off to JB editor Jim Testa. During this era, I started discovering, befriending and reviewing dozens of Jersey bands. Most of you would probably recognize the bigger names like the Feelies, Yo La Tengo, the db’s, the Bongos (all of whom I love!) I went on the organize an ongoing local rock music festival at a place called Modern Artists Studios, which was one block from where I still live in Rahway, NJ. I organized a dozen or so two day 5 or 6 band fests, a couple per year throughout the eighties and early nineties. I still have great memories of amazing sets from: Scornflakes, the Love Pushers, Phantom Tollbooth, Dissipated Face and even Suburban Bohemia. Here is a list of my favorite Jersey bands from this era:

1.The Young Turks (4 singles, 1 unreleased LP)
2.Regressive Aid (who mutated into) Scornflakes
3.The Mopeds (Linden’s finest! feat: Owen Plotkin & Mitch “The Bitch” Monzeez)
4.Lunar Bear Ensemble (led by John Richey, great poet /w 1 album, we still have copies!)
5.Tiny Lights (excellent psych band! w/ Jane Scarpantoni & Dave Driewitz from Ween)
6.Children in Adult Jails (w/ 3 hilarious women, each had their own radio show on WFMU)
7.Pleased Youth (Great NJ HC band! I sang back-up vocals on their one & only LP!)
8.Adrenalin OD (faster, funnier and more furious than any other hardcore band!)
9.Gutbank (from Hoboken, 3 tough women & a dude, rocking’ hard!)
10.Machine Gun (w/ Bob Musso, Thomas Chapin, John Richey, Jair-Ohm Parker Wells & Smokin’ Bill Bryant) - Hardcore Jazz/Rock/Noise improv at it finest, influenced by Last Exit! - 3 albums/CD’s, 2 of which are still in stock

ROSCOE MITCHELL with DANA REASON / SARA SCHOENBECK / OSTRAVSKA BANDA - Distant Radio Transmission, Nonaah Trio, Cutouts for Woodwind Quintet and 8.8.88 (Wide Hive 0347; USA) “The first Piece 'Distant Radio Transmission' was first recorded as an improvisation by Roscoe Mitchell, Craig Taborn, and Kikanju Baku in 2013 and released as the third composition on Roscoe Mitchell Conversations I (WH-0317). It was then transcribed by Stephen P. Harvey in 2016 with further Transcription and Orchestration of air sounds for Strings by John Ivers in 2017 and finally then fully Orchestrated by Roscoe Mitchell in 2017. Here it is performed in 2019 by Mr Mitchell on Soprano Saxophone and the influential Czech Orchestra Ostravaska Banda.
'Nonaah Trio' was recorded in Oregon with Roscoe Mitchell on Soprano Saxophone, Dana Reason on Piano, John C Savage on Flute, and Catherine Lee D. Mus on Oboe. 'Cutouts for Woodwind Quintet' was rewritten for five instruments by Mr. Mitchell in 2019 and recorded in New York before his Park Avenue Armory performance in March of 2019.
August 8, 1988 Roscoe wrote three compositions for piano intended for the great concert pianist Mr. Joseph Kubera. Since this work was not subject to the constraints associated with commissioned work Roscoe spent ten years finalizing the first movement. In 1998 The Mutable Music Foundation commissioned the composition's remaining movements. 8/8/88 consists of three sections. The first movement is 35 measures long, divided asymmetrically into uncommon time signatures such as 15/8, 11/8, 17/8 etc. The second movement has 17 measures and the third movement 44 measures. Here it is performed on a Disklavier by Seth Horvitz.” I’ve only listened to this disc once all the way through at home and undistracted. It is indeed a masterwork from the Grand Master himself, Roscoe Mitchell! I will review it for next weeks’ newsletter since it will be here shortly, a couple of weeks ahead of street date.

Three Seminal New Treasures from the Grand Leo Label:


IVO PERELMAN / MATTHEW SHIPP - Efflorescence Volume 1 (Leo 866-869; UK) Limited edition, spectacular 4-CD box for real connoisseurs and lovers of Perelman/Shipp music. In 2018, when the saxophonist and pianist released a 3-CD box entitled ONENESS, they made an emphatic statement that there would be no more duo recordings in the near future: "for now there is nothing more to say". Yet, several months later they found themselves in the studio bursting with creativity and refining their unique style of intuitive improvisation. Each disc has a distinct flavor, despite the ambitious range of tempos, textures, techniques and emotions.
After some 30 releases from saxist Ivo Perelman and pianist Matt Shipp, which range from duos to trios to quartets, one would think that these two master musicians would be finished with their long recording odyssey, but this is not the case. Recorded in May of 2018 in a studio in Brooklyn, this colossal duo are back with yet another multiple (4 CD) box set. What I find most interesting is this: these two musicians have found a way to inspire each other, building structures with different moving lines or phrases. When Disc One begins, I hear Mr. Shipp start with one line which he plays straight and then slowly twists it, bending the phrase in different ways, slowing it down, adding some resonance with the pedal of the piano held down. Mr. Perelman also adds slow, haunted lines on top, also bending certain notes cautiously as he goes. We have entered a somber dreamworld and am sleepwalking as well go. These two work so well together with Mr. Shipp adding subtle nuanced shades here and there. Even when the intensity and tempo increase on “Rose”, the duo match each other’s direction just right with those crisscrossing lines connecting somewhere in the center (of the short storm). There is a solid ongoing conversation going on here, with certain fragments moving in and out of each’s stream, select notes are in rich harmony with one another, dancing around and with one another in a most organic, earthly sort of way. Since these two musicians have been working/playing together for so long, they have established their own unique dialogue, connecting, extending and answering each others lines. At times, it seems as if these two old friends are singing or dancing or just having a thoughtful conversation which just keep evolving through many different connected, somehow familiar levels. I am currently listening to Disc Two and I keep hearing the way the dialogue continues to work, reaching up to show us a way into the creative spirit as it evolves. There are also some truly transcendent, melodic, hushed and haunting sections as well, keeping things is perfect balance between the extremes. Both Ivo Perelman and Matt Shipp have reached a new level here and the current continues to rise as they go. Here is some truth and beauty to marvel at, so much better than the smoke & mirrors and constant lies coming from… - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG

THE BALDERIN SALI with EVAN PARKER / PAUL LOVENS / PHILIPP WACHSMANN / SEBI TRAMONTANA / HARRI SJOSTROM / TEPPO HAUTO-AHO / et al - Variations (Leo 870-871; UK) Featuring: Evan Parker on tenor & soprano saxes, Harri Sjoststrom on soprano & sopranino saxes, Sebi Tramontana on trombone, Philipp Wachsmann on violin & electronics, Libero Mureddu on piano, Emilio Gordoa on vibes & percussion, Veli Kojala on quarter-tone trumpet, Matthias Bauer & Teppo Hauta-Aho on basses and Paul Lovens & Dag Magnus Narsvevesen on drums & percussion. This is a historical meeting under the Helsinki skies; three generations of legendary European masters of Present Time Composition during a two-night celebration. Powerful, joyful, orchestral, seductive, poetic, free... Instant composing at its best! This marathon event was organized by Finnish saxist, Harri Sjostrom, whose name you should recognize from his work with Cecil Taylor in the 1990’s as well as more recent work with Gianni Mimmo and XOL. Most of the other names you should well recognize: Evan Parker & Paul Lovens, who also worked with Cecil Taylor as well as together. The two other veterans improvisers include Italian great Sebi Tramontana, who also works with many: Joelle Leandre, Georg Graewe & Italian Instabile Orchestra and bassist Teppo Hauta-aho, who used to work with Edvard Vesala and the Olavi Trio. Very recently young drummer, Dag Magnus Narvesen, has been recurring with Alex Von Schlippenbach. Even the lesser knowns here: Emilio Gordoa and Veli Kujala can be found on a few discs listed in the DMG database.
There are some eleven musicians here, who worked in duos, trios, quartets and two full ensemble pieces. CD-1 begins with and CD-2 ends with the full ensemble, which is a perfect way to begin and end these two discs. The sound is superb throughout, the playing consistently engaging, edge-of-your-seat type of improvising. The first piece starts out quietly and eventually erupts into some intense flashes. All the pieces are well selected and superbly recorded. There is an inspired quartet with Evan Parker, Emilio Godoa on vibes, Hauta-Aho on bass and Narvesen on drums, the bowed percussion and/or vibes being especially haunting. While listening to the second disc, I decided to stop paying attention to the personnel for each track. It didn’t really matter in the end since all 11 members sounded great no matter what combination was playing. One of the highlights here is hearing the newer names like Veli Kujala (on the rarely heard quarter-tone accordion), Emilio Godos and Libero Mureddo. Outstanding throughout! - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG

URS LEIMGRUBER / ANDREAS WILLERS / ALVIN CURRAN / FABRIZIO SPERA - Rome-Ing (Leo 872; UK)
Featuring Urs Leimgruber on soprano & tenor saxes, Andreas Willers on electric guitar & devices, Alvin Curran on piano & sampler and Frabizio Spera on drums. This set was recorded live at Casa del Jazz in Rome, Italy in November of 2018. This is a unique line-up of musicians from different scenes or cultures. German saxist, Urs Leimgruber, came here last year and played a series of sets in solo and in a trio. His solo soprano sax sets are legendary are as his collaborations with Barre Phillips, Christy Doran, Fred Frith and Joelle Leandre. Aside from being a founding member of the legendary Musica Elletronica Viva, American-born, Italian-based, keyboard/sampler wiz, Alvin Curran, has been stretching out in recent (or not-so-recent) years and working with Jon Rose, Steve Lacy and Elliott Sharp. Gifted guitarist, Andreas Willers, rarest gets the recognition he rightly deserves although he has worked with Axel Dorner, Jon Roder and the Grid Mesh Quartet. His dozen or so discs as a leader are all worthy of hearing yet nearly impossible to find. Italian drummer Fabrizio Spera has also kept busy working with John Butcher, Roots Magic and 7K Oaks.
This set was recorded live and the sound is especially warm, clear and enchanting. Hushed and haunting sounds slowly building in volume and intensity… soft spiraling soprano sax, fragmented guitar swirls, subtle mallet work and eerie electronics/samples. As the sound evolves, it get more dense, more evocative of restless spirits joining forces. There is a section where Mr. Willers plays some cool jazz chords while Leimgrubers wails above on soprano, Curran plays some great out-piano fragments before jumping into more forceful Cecil Taylor-like cascades. I what I dig the most about great imrov is that when it connects, it takes us away and stimulates our imaginations, displaying some sort of film for our collective mind’s inner eye & ear. This disc is a strong transportation device which takes us to another (inner) world. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG

LAJOS DUDAS with KARL BERGER / GERD DUDEK / et al - The Lake and The Music (JazzSick Records 127; Germany) Featuring Lajos Dudas on clarinet & arrangements, Philipp Van Endert on guitar, Leonard Jones, Votold Rek or Martin Gjakonovski on bass and Kurt Billker on drums plus guests Karl Berger on vibes & Gerd Dudek on soprano sax & flute. Hungarian clarinet master, Lajos Dudas, usually sends us a new discs every year or two and they are always a welcome surprise. Mr. Dudas has had an ongoing trio or quartet for the past decade the personnel listed above, the constant members include Philipp Van Endert on guitar and Kurt Billker on drums. He also features the occasional guest like Gerd Dudek (from Globe Unity & Berlin Contemporary Jazz Orchestras & Peter Brotzmann Group) and Karl Berger (Creative Music Studio founder & much more!). All the songs here are standards which our jazz listeners should well remember.
An infectious playful groove kicks things off with “The Lady is a Tramp”, both the clarinet and guitar sound fine and both play some inspired solos. Drummer Kurt Billker kicks up some dust, pushing their guitarist, Van Endert into some spirited jazz/rock licks. I like the way Mr. Dudas will take ancient swing song like “Sweet Georgia Brown” and cast it as a ballad for clarinet and guitar with some truly inventive yet subtle playing from his gifted guitarist. “Out of Nowhere” is an old standard that the beboppers like to cover back in the day (late forties). Dudas’s quartet smoothes out the intensity a bit yet it still swings hard in a slow burring sort of way. Dudas’s clarinet and Gerd Dudek’s soprano sax swirl effortlessly around one another on “All of Me”, backed up superbly just by Van Endert’s crafty guitar. Karl Berger adds some sublime, lush vibes to Gershwin’s haunting “A Foggy Day” which is played in a lovely, dreamlike way. Hardbop standard, “Filthy McNasty” by Horace Silver, is a bit less funky yet it still retains that infectious glee that most hardbop songs are made from. The two things that makes this disc special are Mr. Dudas’ superb golden tone on clarinet throughout and the way the quartet often strip many of these songs down to their skeletal elements yet they retain there essential swing or floating groove/vibe. So nice to hear these standards reimagined so tastefully. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG

GEORG GRAEWE - Stills and Stories (Random Acoustics 028; Germany) "Right from the start, stills and stories, pianist Georg Graewe's first solo disc in more than a decade, proves one thing: this man's brain works quicker than yours. So do his fingers. His feet, hands, and inner life just might as well. Not that speed counts, mind you. But when you dive into this dense, elusive, and, ultimately, riveting 2010 recording from Bochum, Germany, you sense that Graewe, back in his hometown, is pushing things to the limit: his own resources, his listener's ability to absorb art, and, at 79 minutes, the limitations of the compact disc itself." - Greg Buium, Point of Departure (June, 2015)
CD $17


UN DRAME MUSICAL INSTANTANE - L’homme A La Camera/La Glace A Trois Faces (Klanggalerie 277; Austria) "Un Drame Musical Instantané were founded in 1976, featuring Jean-Jacques Birgé, Bernard Vitet and Francis Gorgé. Their aim was to promote collective musical creation, co-signing their albums, which they consider as artworks in themselves, or their live shows which they tried to renew every time they played. Their sound was created with many influences: rock; jazz, and classical modern music; as well as movies or world news; they were the first in France to give a new impetus to live music on silent movies. After having improvised freely for many years, they led a fifteen-piece orchestra from 1981 to 1986, and from 1989 onwards they produced multimedia shows (live video remix on a giant screen, fireworks, choreographies). Still their music was the most important technique, they called their recordings 'blind cinema'. The Drame used to mix acoustic and electronic instruments in real time as well as original instruments built by Vitet (a reed trumpet, a multiphonic French horn, a variable tension double-bass, a giant balafon with frying pans and flower pots keyboard, a fire organ, plexiglas flutes, etc.). After Francis Gorgé left the band in 1992, Birgé and Vitet went on recording and producing with other musicians close to the 'family' such as percussionist, Gérard Siracusa, or multi-instrumentalist, Hélène Sage. Un Drame Musical Instantané always remained independent (they always owned their own recording studio and record label GRRR) and stopped its activities in 2008, with Birgé being the only one active until this day. L'Homme À La Caméra was originally released on GRRR in 1984 and features 15 musicians. In addition to the original album, we offer you a whole new section of previously unreleased music from the time entitled La Glace A Trois Faces which is another soundtrack to a silent movie from 1927."

SOUND AMERICAN - No. 23 - The Alien Issue (Sound American 23; USA) This is a marvelous, thought-provoking magazine/125 page book which is edited by trumpeter & composer Nate Wooley. Mr. Wooley asked a dozen or so younger musicians to discuss various aspects of their music through the lens of ‘alien’ or alienation’. The musicians/ writers include Matana Roberts, Chris Pitsiokos, Wendy Eisenberg, Lester St. Louis, Charmaine Lee, Jacob Wick, Marc Hannaford, James May, Frankin Bruno, Sarah Hennies and Nicole Kaack. I most of these musicians very well but some of them not at all. Every article in this magazine/small book is worth reading and then reading again. I especially like the article/interview with Chris Pitsiokos about former WKCR-FM radio programmer/archivist/New Music historian Ben Young. Mr. Young is someone with whom I’ve long admired as a serious music archivist and articulate music historian. The article by Matana Roberts in which she taps into what it feels like to be an alien in another country. I agree, we can do better.
I started collecting music magazines in 1966 at the age of 12, mostly Hit Parade and Song Hits, just to read the lyrics of the songs which were the soundtrack to our lives back then. Great lyrics seems to the place where a songwriter could illuminate or inspire or enrage the listener with a great turn of phrase. I have continued to collect music magazines of all sorts throughout my entire life and still have have each & every one in 6 o 7 filing cabinets in my apartment. I know that many folks give or throw away magazines after a period of time. I have long found out that some of the best music writing is found in these many these periodicals. Eventually, I hope to place my collection in a library where it can by unitized by future musicians, composers and serious listeners. This is why I find Sound American to be so vital to understanding our place in humanity as musicians and serious listeners. Nice work from Nate Wooley and all the contributors here. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG

GENA ROSE BRUCE - Can't Make You Love Me (Dot Dash 056; Australia) "Can't Make You Love Me is the debut album from Melbourne based Gena Rose Bruce. Bruce's vocals drive this album; a stirring force amidst the pulsing rhythms, echoes of Mazzy Star and Lynchian undertones. Add to this the masterful restraint in the arrangements and one has an album that is both instantly timeless and unmistakably contemporary. In December 2017, Bruce pulled herself out of a toxic relationship, shifting focus entirely towards her music. 'I quit my job, gave up the room I was renting and left the whole situation. I spent three months alone at a family property in Warrnambool on the south coast of Australia and wrote the album. It was a healing time.' The place was a small weatherboard near the ocean in the middle of nowhere. Secluded and eerily quiet, Bruce credits the album's darker edges in part to this environment; 'It's not a sunny beach town, it's very melancholic. Even in the middle of summer there was no-one around.' But it was here that she regained focus and confidence, entering a period of intense creative output. With fresh perspective, lyrics fell into place, followed by sound. Producer Tim Harvey and Bruce bounced ideas constantly. 'There was lots of demoing and experimenting. We didn't feel I had to fit to any genre -- we just wanted it to be 'me'.' Consequently, Can't Make You Love Me is a distinct and dynamic debut from a young artist with a clear vision. With its infectious melodies, sultry vocal performances and biting lyricism it's thrillingly playful and confessional. Bruce presents a refreshing brand of vulnerability through unfettered explorations of her life choices."

MARA HANSEN - Dust Karaoke Kalk KK 116; Germany) “Working as a creative collaborator can be a triple-edged sword: Helping others explore the jungle of ideas inside their heads can be both inspiring and challenging -- but making time for your own creative projects as well is often a delicate balance. The years as side-woman for the likes of Sufjan Stevens, The National, and My Brightest Diamond have made Marla Hansen's journey from 2007's Wedding Day to her new album Dust a faraway honeymoon: time spent recording and touring the world with others before settling in Berlin to focus on her own follow-up, a multi-faceted gem which wears the lines of its lengthy travels like a hard-earned medal. The slow-burn of Dust's inception can be felt as the album plays. The tracks have weight and wisdom like hand-me-down folk songs, but also sparkle with the confidence and the excitement of an artist with new colors on her palette. Wedding Day's breezy innocence has graduated into grown-up chamber music; Hansen's classical background comes into wide focus as solo plucked viola evolves into techni-colour Americana dreamscapes, courtesy of Berlin's Oriel Quartett. The influence of Hansen's new hometown is all over this record, nowhere felt more than with the swashbuckling contributions of Berlin synth pioneer Barbara Morgenstern, crackling under the fireside songs like shards of electric glass. Andi Haberl (The Notwist) lurks under every track, his drums simmering like an approaching army of wooden horses. Taylor Savvy (Peaches, Bonaparte), Knox Chandler (Cyndi Lauper, R.E.M.), and Christian Biegai (Antony and the Johnsons) are all present at this banquet. A transatlantic tapestry sewn together by producer Robbie Moore (L.A. Salami, Jesper Munk) at his Berlin studio complex Impression Recordings. It is this tangled underbelly which allows Dust such an infectious friction. Hansen's iridescent, aching vocal delivery continuously breaks the gloom like a golden thread, effortlessly gliding above the thunderclouds -- a front-row seat in the safety of her silver-lined spy plane with a view of the neon jungle below. Dust falls from an age-old story and lands in a whole new world. CD version includes eight-page booklet; edition of 500.”

LP Section:

THELONIOUS MONK QUARTET with CHARLIE ROUSE / JOHN ORE / FRANKIE DUNLOP - Live In Amsterdam (Naked Lunch 009; Italy) The legendary Thelonious Monk Quartet's appearance at the world-famous Concertgebouw in Amsterdam in May 1961. The high priest of bop, one of the most important, if enigmatic figures in modern jazz together with three of his main disciples, tenor sax specialist Charlie Rouse and the ultra-dynamic rhythm section of double bassist John Ore and drummer Frankie Dunlop, in a wonderful performance based on super tight renditions of classic tunes such as "Jackie-ing", "Straight No Chaser", "Crepuscule With Nellie", and "Rhythm-a-Ning". Surely, both the band and the packed house had a ball that night!
LP $18

BILLIE HOLIDAY AND LESTER YOUNG - Studio Recordings Vol. 1 (Naked Lunch 008; Italy) “The one-and-only Lady Day together with tenor saxophone giant Lester Young represent one of the greatest musical relationships in jazz history. The way Lester Young used to interact with Billie Holiday's deep melodies was outstanding, and after almost a century the whole atmosphere of their music is still totally unique. These sessions held in New York between 1937 and 1938, featuring heavyweights such as Benny Goodman, Teddy Wilson, and the Count Basie rhythm section, Freddie Green, Walter Page, and Papa Jo Jones, are one of the greatest treasures in American music, period.

FIRE! ORCHESTRA - Actions (Rune Grammafon 3212; Norway) “Original score by Krzysztof Penderecki. New reading and conduction by Mats Gustafsson. The first (and until now only?) recorded interpretation of Krzysztof Penderecki's Actions For Free Jazz Orchestra took place in 1971 at Donaueschingen and featured the New Eternal Rhythm Orchestra, assembled by Don Cherry for the occasion and conducted by the great Polish composer. That orchestra also consisted of 14 musicians, including international jazz heavyweights such as Kenny Wheeler, Peter Brötzmann, Thomasz Stanko, Terje Rypdal, Han Bennink, and others. Don Cherry himself did not perform. Penderecki had heard the Globe Unity Orchestra a couple of years earlier and was fascinated by the possibilities of working with musicians from a different background and with other perspectives than he was used to from the classical world. The challenge for all involved was to find the right balance between composition and improvisation. The idea was initially met with some skepticism from the musicians, but this soon gave way to acceptance and even eagerness. The new, extended reading by Mats Gustafsson and Fire! Orchestra was commissioned by the Sacrum Profanum festival in Kraków, Poland in 2018. The idea was to place this classic piece in a contemporary setting, with a new approach and a new body of sound. However, the original score was used as a platform for the new reading, connecting history with the present. A score in this context is most often of a graphic nature to present reference points, visualized on the sleeve by Kim Hiorthøy's cut-up adaption of Mats Gustafsson's score. It's also worth noticing that the instrumentation is more or less identical to that of 1971, the main difference being a tuba replacing one of the trombones. Finally, this new reading clocks in at 40 minutes, and is thus considerably longer than the 1971 version. This line-up of the Fire! Orchestra is unique in that it's the first time without founding members and singers Mariam Wallentin and Sofia Jernberg. It's also the first time with guitarist Reine Fiske.

LOCOMOTIVE - We Are Everything You See (Magic Box 1009; UK) “Magic Box present a reissue of Locomotive's We Are Everything You See, originally released in 1969. Led by the legendary Norman Haines, Locomotive were one of Birmingham's finest '60s bands. They had a 1968 hit with the ska-styled "Rudi's In Love", but by 1969 they had taken a more progressive direction. Their sole album was produced by Gus Dudgeon (renowned for his work with David Bowie and Elton John), but its release was delayed and the band had split by the time it finally appeared at the turn of the decade, dooming it to minuscule sales. It is now regarded as a lost classic, and is one of the most collectible albums of the era. It makes its long-overdue return to vinyl here, together with an insert containing photos and info. Features keyboardist Norman Haines. Original flipback cover.
LP $22

LEVEE CAMP MOAN - Levee Camp Moan (Sommor Records 058; Spain) “Sommor Records present the first legitimate reissue one of the rarest private blues-rock albums from the UK, Levee Camp Moan's self-titled release, originally released in 1969. In 1969, Bracknell-based blues rock outfit Levee Camp Moan released what was destined to become one of the most sought-after UK private pressings of the period on the County Recording Services label. This LP marked their status as one of the most exciting bands to emerge out of the thriving local underground scene in the Bracknell Delta. The group had taken their name from the old blues number and the band members, manager and assorted roadies took up residence in a local farmhouse known as Peacock Farm. It was there that LCM would rehearse into the small hours, thumping out a mixture of blues standards as well as their own compositions until they had become a tight unit ready to "take on the world". Influences ranged from the urban blues of Otis Rush, Buddy Guy, and Junior Wells to Muddy Waters, Skip James, and beyond. The more or less contemporary white blues of the time, Canned Heat, Savoy Brown, and Paul Butterfield also served as a major source of inspiration. From their humble roots LCM quickly built up a following on the British Blues circuit, frequenting the likes of the Marquee, Crawdaddy, Klooks Kleek, Eel Pie Island, and Rikki Tik club. On the college circuit they toured extensively with Chickenshack, Canned Heat, and Muddy Waters with performances being of a high enough standard to generate record company interest. Unable to secure a record deal, they had no other choice but to do it themselves. And so, in the winter months of early '69 that LCM entered Virgin Sound in nearby Windsor to lay down eight tracks recorded on a four-track machine. With no record company interference, the archetypal private pressing, raw, under-produced, and thrillingly primitive. The project successfully captured the spirit and aggression of an exciting new band and the original artefact is now a zeitgeist of that remarkable era. After Levee Camp Moan, Ian Campbell went on to carve out a busy musical career performing with, amongst many others, the Nashville Teens, Arthur Brown's band and Mungo Jerry. Bassist Dave Stubbs played with a host of notables, including Eric Clapton's band and Uli Jon Roth (ex-Scorpions). Original artwork. Includes insert with rare photos and full band history by Pete Sarfas.
