A Saucerful of Secrets the main track from the eponymous album was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began.
Their next album Ummagumma gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon.
Hard bop, hip hop, free jazz, groove, electro, calypso, experimental or Caribbean: the key players of the new British jazz scene are open to everything. Here we look back over ten essential albums. What if she really was the greatest cool jazz singer of them all? Almost a decade after she passed away, Chris Connor remains one of the most sensual voices of her generation.

The contributions are clearly marked. For the most part everything is taken directly from vinyl, and is mp3 format. These recordings are not run through a computer or any other editing software. You are hearing what I hear as I sit in my living room sipping a cool bourbon. This is the raw product and oftentimes it has seen better days. But these lps have found a loving home in their old age.
I hope you enjoy them as much as me. I'm not here as an expert, just a fan. It's all about the joy music instills.
Reposts for your pleasure I will repost some records if there is interest. Best to leave an email address when you request, that way if I don't repost the lp I can at least send you a private link. If I am going to repost a recording, I will update the post completely and put it on the front page. The six albums the group recorded feature some of his most accessible work, notably on the album You Know the Number.
The group's unorthodox instrumentation included two drummers, double bass, cello, trumpet, and trombone, in addition to Threadgill's alto saxophone and flute. During the s, Threadgill pushed the musical boundaries even further with his ensemble Very Very Circus. The group consisted of two tubas, two electric guitars, a trombone or French horn, and drums.
With this group he explored more complex and highly structured forms of composition, augmenting the group with Latin percussion, French horn, violin, accordion, vocalists, and exotic instruments.
He composed and recorded with other unusual instruments, such as a flute quartet Flute Force Four , a one-time project from ; and combinations of four cellos and four acoustic guitars on Makin' a Move.
He was signed by Columbia Records for three albums. Since the dissolution of Very Very Circus, Threadgill has continued in his iconoclastic ways with ensembles such as Make a Move and Zooid. Zooid, currently a sextet with tuba Jose Davila , acoustic guitar Liberty Ellman , cello Christopher Hoffman , drums Elliot Kavee and bass guitar Stomu Takeishi , has been the primary vehicle for Threadgill's compositions in the s.
In Threadgill composed the string quartet Sixfivetwo for the Kronos Quartet , which they recorded as part of their "Fifty for the Future" project.
Threadgill was born in Chicago. With Muhal Richard Abrams. With David Murray.
