Noise Of Trouble – Live In Tokyo

LP (Item 32806) Enemy, 1986 — Condition: Sealed

Why was it that the left end of jazz in the 80s often produced some of the most unexpected alliances? Perhaps it was because it was so tough to gig and earn on one own's creative vision that it made more sense to play together with other leaders. Or perhaps the dearth of really creative music in the mainstream made more avant players try to fill the void. Whatever the case, this album's a very typical batch of 80s avant – featuring the unlikely alliance of Peter Brotzmann, Bill Laswell, Ronald Shannon Jackson, and Sonny Sharrock, all playing with noisy whimsy on tracks like "Panzer Be Bop", "Blind Willie", "Straw Dog", and "Pig Cheese".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Jeremy Steig

Columbia, 1974. Near Mint-
Funky fusion from Jeremy Steig – still sounding pretty darn great here, although a bit freer than on some of his earlier albums. The great Eddie Gomez is still working with Jeremy here – which is one of the reasons the record sounds so great, as Eddie's bass work is deep and soulful, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Smith

Folk Jazz
Contemporary, 1959. Near Mint-
One of the few sides ever cut as a leader by west coast clarinetist Bill Smith – and a pretty groovy session that has the group performing jazz versions of folk tunes, a gimmick that was used briefly around the same time by players that included Harold Land and Benny Bailey. The quartet ... LP, Vinyl record album

1975 – The Duets
A&M, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold
Excellent mid 70s duet jazz from pianist Dave Brubeck & alto Paul Desmond! Duets 1975 is a nicely laidback work from the duo – playing here with no other accompaniment, in a spare set of material that's incredibly fragile and intimate – and all the better for that. The move is a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Zoot Sims

Soprano Sax
Pablo, 1976. Near Mint-
A rare treat from Zoot Sims – an album of soprano sax material, recorded in striking contrast to his more familiar tenor! The sound is oddly more traditional than usual – and unlike many other players in the 70s, Sims doesn't use the soprano in a Coltrane-inspired mode, but in a way ... LP, Vinyl record album
