✨✧ John Stevens & Evan ParkerCorner To Corner/The Longest Night ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1976/1993. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A triple length set of work from the team of Evan Parker and John Stevens – presented here as a 2CD set! The first part of the package features both volumes 1 and 2 of the Longest Night sessions from 1976 – very free duets between these two ex-partners in the Spontaneous Music Ensemble – a session with very little structure at all, and sounds that are almost more FMP than other Ogun albums of the time! Evan Parker plays soprano sax throughout – and Stevens alternates between percussion and cornet – using mostly the former, but sometimes a bit of the latter in ways that have a surprising sense of presence. Parker's notes are nicely shaped on the best numbers – bringing in occasional more human moments amidst more Lacy-like bleats and blonks on the soprano. Titles include "21.25", "19.11", "19.44", "21.47", "22.18", "23.12",, and "23.40. Next up is the album Corner To Corner – recorded in 1993, nearly 20 years after the first 2 records – but with a quality that's amazingly similar, and which shows both Parker and Stevens to still be at the farthest, freest edges of British jazz. The sounds of the session clearly mark it as a belated follow-up to the first date – but the titles this time around are a bit less oblique, and include "Corner To Corner", "Rubber", "Angles", "Incidence", and "Reflections".

✨✧ Don Cherry/Marion Brown/Evan Parker/John StevensFree Jazz Meeting – Baden Baden 1967 ... CD
Hi Hat, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Four slices of genius from this important German jazz festival of the 60s – one of the leading showcases for the best in avant garde and experimental music! The sounds here are as stunning as the lineup – maybe even more so, as there's some nicely-unfamiliar, surprisingly collaborative passages going on – all of which really illuminate the studio music by these groundbreaking artists! The set begins with "Andalusian Proverb" – a beautiful showcase for the dynamic vocals of Jeanne Lee, as she sings with Gunter Hampel on vibes, Albert Mangelsdorff on trombone, and Pierre Courbois on drums. "Cubis" features a sublime trio with Marion Brown on alto, Peter Kowald on bass, and John Stevens on drums – and that rhythm duo also supports "Jepa", which features Mangelsdorff on trombone and Evan Parker on soprano sax – and "Relationship", which also features Parker – as well as Don Cherry on trumpet and Buschi Niebergall on second bass.

✨✧ London Jazz Composers OrchestraThat Time ... CD
Not Two (Poland), 1972/1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very rare work from this legendary improvising orchestra – two different recordings from the first decade or so of the group's existence, at a time when they were hardly making any records at all! The first two long tracks are from a 1972 performances in Germany – and feature an early version of the group conducted by Buxton Orr, but with leader Barry Guy in strong formation – in a very large lineup that includes saxes from Evan Parker, Mike Osborne, Trevor Watts, and Alan Wakeman; trumpets from Kenny Wheeler, Harry Beckett, Mark Charig, and Dave Holdsworth; trombones from Paul Rutherford, Mike Gibbs, and Paul Nieman; guitar from Derek Bailey; piano from Howard Riley; percussion and drums from Paul Lytton and Tony Oxley; and more bass from Jeff Clyne and Chris Laurence. The players' ability to move in ways that are both cohesive and individual is breathtaking – on the long selections "Watts Parker Beckett To Me Mr Riley" and "Statements III". Next are two more tracks recorded in London in 1980 – one live, one studio – with some of the same players, but also the addition of Peter Brotzmann and Tony Coe on saxes, Philipp Wachsmann on violin, and John Stevens on percussion – on the tracks "Quasimode III" and "Appolysian".
