OFOB playlist for 10/14/14


Another fun-packed show, this week. Below is the playlist including start times for pieces if you get a chance to listen via the KUSP music show player. First time play for a compelling release by Chicago sax player David Boykin – a live recording at the Hungry Brain, the piano a little rinky-dink, but played excellently by Jim Baker, + w/a similar sound to the piano played by Les Walker on the Steve Reid rarity, so I hope you can get used to it and dig what they were putting out on both those dates.
Dig in + keep those ears growing!

OFOB playlist for 9/30/14


This posting is later than usual – no reflection on the quality of musicianship represented in the program. I am hoping that you have already availed yourself of the chronological posting at the OFOB site on kusp.org which occurred while the program happened. Note there is still some 40 odd hours for you to listen to it before tomorrow’s program is loaded in and takes the place of the below show on KUSP’s web music player.

This show turned on a new release by great Italian drummer Tiziano Tononi who’s Peace Warriors recording of provocative covers of Ornette Coleman on Black Saint. His Awake Nu Quartet including adept reedman Daniele Cavallanti is a consummate set of covers of the great Don Cherry, and with this release as the inspirational focus for the program you should find no dearth of neutrally stimulating music and hope you have the opportunity to dig in. Below you’ll find the playlist replete with Don Cherry’s music showing up in a variety of ways… notes included!

Keep those ears growing!

P.S. KUSP is currently airing it’s Fall membership drive. Creative non-commercial radio is a rarity these days and in the U.S. only possible through the support of appreciative listeners. Why don’t you 888-777-1507 or visit kusp.org during this week’s show and let us know you care!

OFOB for 9/30/14:
Kasper Tranberg & Nils Davidsen- Le Hex- Zone Bleue- Ilk music [a lush set of duets by Danish players w/Kasper on trumpet and Nils on bass]
*Steve Lacy with Don Cherry- Something to Live For- Evidence- Prestige [a classic 1962 recording also featuring Billy Higgins on drums and recorded by Rudy van Gelder for New Jazz. We hear a cover of Duke Ellington]
Simon Toldam Trio- Se, En Fugl Kigger Ned- Kig Op 14- Ilk music [more great Danish jazz, this new trio release by Simon also features Nils Davidsen and reminded me of Misha Mengelberg’s great trio recordings. The title translates to “see, a bird looking down”]
Eric Dolphy- Fire Waltz- Live at the Five Spot, Vol. 1- Prestige [from 1962 this run at the NYC jazz club produced 3+ lps of great music by a quintet to die for: Eric on reeds (alto here), Booker Little – trumpet, Mal Waldron- piano, Richard Davis- bass, and Ed Blackwell- drums. A jumping live version of Mal’s tune, also see Mal’s studio date “The Quest” from the same year. Eric and Booker would undoubtedly have continued as consummate musical partners and innovators (note this effectively a co-led group for this date) had Booker not died at the age of 21]
*Andrew Hill- One For- Blue Black- Sound in Time [An under-recorded quartet of Andrew’s in a slow recording period for this master pianist. Jimmy Vass- alto sax, Chris White- bass and Leroy Williams- drums, this was first issued on the Japanese label East Wind and as such did not get the U.S. airing the date deserves]
Steve Lacy/Masahiko Togashi/Masahiko Satoh- Tina’s Tune- Apices: Live at the Egg Farm 2000- Studio Songs [this date actually recorded in Japan and took me a while to track down to add to my Lacy collection. Percussionist M.Togashi is was a semi-regular collaborator of Lacy’s, M.Satoh is on piano.]
Bruce Eisenbeil/Klaus Kugel/Perry Robinson/Peter Evans/Hilliard Greene- Iono- Carnival Skin- Nemu Records [a collective date, Eisenbell plays guitar, Klaus Kugel- drums, Perry Robinson- clarinet, Peter Evans- trumpet, Hilliard Greene- bass. This is Hilliard’s composition and he has a lovely arco solo]
*Tiziano Tononi Awake Nu Quartet- Complete Communion- The (CherryCo)mpany- Nu Bop Records [A marvelous new recording covering Don Cherry tunes… a BIG FUN date which gets 4 thumbs up + big YOW from me! 2011 live tracks w/Tiziano- drums, Daniele Cavallanti- tenor sax, Luca Calabrese- trumpet + Andrea DiBiase- bass. This the title tune was Don Cherry’s first release for Blue Note recorded in 1966]
Charles Brackeen (w/D.Cherry, C.Haden/E.Blackwell)- Rhythm X- Rhythm X- StrataEast [Texas tenor Charles Brackeen grabbed up 3 Ornette Coleman alums for a very Ornettish date from 1973 produced by Clifford Jordan]
Ornette Coleman and Charlie Haden- Human Being- Soapsuds Soapsuds- Artist House [1977 w/Ornette on tenor sax, as perfect a duet date as you have any right to expect from these two masters. Though all numbers on the album are great, you have got to dig the contemplative power of Charlie’s Human Being!]
*AALY Trio/DKV Trio- Awake Nu- Double or Nothing- Okka Disc [AALY trio = Swedish greats Mats Gustafsson on alto + tenor sax, Kjell Nordeson- drums & Ingebrigt Haker Flaten- bass. DKV Trio = Chicago greats Ken Vandermark- tenor + clarinets, Kent Kessler- bass & Hamid Drake- drums. In 1999 these birds of a feather let fly with this tune originally from Cherry’s "Where is Brooklyn?" date]
Tiziano Tononi Awake Nu Quartet- Cherryco- The (CherryCo)mpany- Nu Bop Records [In 1960 John Coltrane’s reaction to the world changing arrival of Ornette Coleman to the scene was to hit the studio w/Ornette band mates including Don Cherry- tpt, Charlie Haden- bass and Ed Blackwell- drums (+ a second date w/Percy Heath- bass). The music was not released until 1966 (well into Trane’s tenure w/Impulse) as the Lp credited as co-led with Don Cherry: “The Avant- Garde”. The release included two Ornette pieces, one Monk piece and the Don Cherry tune covered here]
What We Live [Larry Ochs/Lisle Ellis/Donald Robinson + Wadada Leo Smith & Dave Douglas]- The Big Hunt- Quintet for a Day- New World [What We Live an innovative trio of sax/bass/drums which was designed to periodically include individual special guests. Here trumpeters Wadada Leo Smith & Dave Douglas helped provide this exceptional quintet recording.]
Ches Smith & These Arches- Learned from Jamie Stewart- Hammered- Clean Feed [drummer Ches fronts an unusual quartet w/power-saxists Tim Berne + Tony Malaby riding over the chordal work of Mary Halvorson- guitar + Andrea Parker- accordion]
Ornette Coleman Quartet- Lonely Woman- Reunion 1990- Domino Records [time for a reworking of this classic 1959 Ornette piece from a reunion 31 years later w/original band members Ornette- alto sax, Don Cherry- trumpet, Charlie Haden- bass + Billy Higgins- drums. The original ran 4:59 and this live version runs a good 12 minutes, never losing the signature excitement of Ornette’s music]
*Billy Bang- The Kora Song- Untitled Gift- Anima Records [1982 - Billy on violin w/Don Cherry- tpt, Wilbur Morris- bass, Denis Charles- drums. A rare Don Cherry composition]

and in the video section:

follow this link for Herbie Hancock + Don Cherry together on Monk’s Bemsha Swing


+ a full 1991 concert w/Peter Apfelbaum!

OFOB for 9/23/13


A wonderful weekend was had by all at the Monterey Jazz Festival 9/19-21. I hope you were able to make the scene, either in person or via KUSP’s live/local broadcast coverage and/or our on-the-spot blog coverage via kusp.org, where you can still find some great photos and observations! A big tip of the porkpie goes out to The Festival, all the participating musicians, plus all the KUSP crew who worked so hard over the weekend to bring you some real music from a real festival!

As luck would have it, I came down w/a serious cold just after the festival, so Jim Sentetos was kind enough to sit in for me this week. As usual, available for you to listen before the next show gets loaded in the wee hours of October 1st.

Keep those ears growing!
