I've been listening to a lot of Jack Costanzo recently, off DJ comps. and "Equations in Rhythm" which has a couple of tracks with the Tubby Hayes Big band.

Check out his Jive Samba - the drums are brutal, mun, brutal!

Peter Brotzmann -The Complete 'Machine Gun' Sessions

Savage record.

I've lived with this album for over 20 years and still have barely got my head 'round it.
The extra versions, previously unavailable, on the Atavistc re-issue proves it wasn't just random noise but proper 'organised' chaos...

I always suspected Richard Cook and Brian Morton gave it a crown album rating as a practical joke.

It's a bit of a marker for that European Free-Improv sound of the early 70's, but it does sound like a 'squally noise'.
Sometimes I like a bit of 'free honking abstraction' it makes a great counterpoint to the bossa nova and tropicalia I usually play.
I always have some Ligeti and Cecil Taylor knocking around for the same reason. smile

Re: What Jazz are you listening too? or WJAYLT for short.

^You can't beat bossa nova, MPB and tropicalia at any time. I've been digging over the weekend the Luaka Bop compilation of Tim Maia tracks from the 70s and the stuff when he was in the UFO cult is absolutely tremendous, especially 'We're Gonna Rule The World' the last track on side 4 of the album. Now I know why he was on Brazilian TV so much: fat, bloated, sweating with numerous narcotics and way past his prime, but it was the saudade of past greatness and the possibility that this performance might, just might be as good as he once was. His nephew, Ed Motta is pretty good too, and has a great scat-nonsense singing jazz album Dwitza that is well worth checking out.

As for avant garde fee jazz, I find I have to be in a very specific mood, but when you're in that mood, there's nothing better. A bit of Sun Ra or Coltrane's Ole. Even Miles in the early 70s to mid-70s.

I've only recently got into Ed Motta, a friend did a mp3 compilation for me and it piqued my interest.
I'm on a bit of an early 70s Miles and Herbie Hancock 'Sextant' jag at the mo' and always up for a bit of Sun Ra.

Ligeti man! "Mysteries of the Macabre" is a great piece. Have you ever heard his composition "Hungarian Rock and Roll"? It's wild, mun!


I loves me a bit of free Jazz. I've been digging some great Pharoah Sanders albums recently "Tauhid" and "The Creator Has a Masterplan" - one of which features "Pygmy yodeling"..........

Re: What Jazz are you listening too? or WJAYLT for short.

Harpo,

Is 'Hungarian Rock' the harpsichord piece ?
I'm a bit obsessed with his Double Concerto for flute and oboe, it's a bit intense.

'Pygmy yodelling' is credited on a Don Cherry album as well, can't remember which one so I'll have a dig in the cwtch later...

Great album and some wonderful Ethiopian jazz from the 70s. There's a whole rack of it, in the record shop I go to, and that Mulatu Astatke has it all going on: dark brooding Ellingtonian funk.

"Hungarian Rock" that's the one! Harpsichord boogie-woogie.

He did the music for 2001 too, didn't he?

The piece in 2001 is 'lux eterna', it goes with the trippy 'light show' sequence.
I've just put "Hungarian Rock" on my 'out for wander' playlist, should stop me dawdling wink

Strong Latin feel to some of his stuff, too, due to the fact that he studied with and used Puerto Rican musicians from the Bronx.  His sound is quite hard to pin down; I once played one of his tunes to an elderly Indian lady, who thought it was Indian music.


some sort of banal legitimacy
