thanks to greg davis for tipping me off to this italian (i think) free jazz blog that offers downloads of a bunch of weird & rare free jazz, both american & european. its called 'Jizz Relics - Archivio fonografico di musica estemporanea' & i think it only lets you download one set for free before signing up for the 'premium service' which is still pretty cheap. i downloaded don cherry & the Brotzmann Trio - Berlin, Germany 27 august 1971. it's a lot like the don cherry swedish radio sessions cd i got from ben awhile back. lots of flutes & percussion with energetic bursts of traditional loud free jazz sax & trumpet & drums. really great & mostly laid back music. ok, maybe the pretty laid back was a little premature- it gets freaking chaotic after awhile. nothing like a good don cherry noisefest!
ps. dont forget tomorrow oak cd release party!
