Playlist, Week of 2017-08-27

A couple of recent Dime acquisitions... the Henry Threadgill set from the Big Ears Festival is nice, pretty sedate... The Lol Coxhill-Richard Sinclair gig from 1975 is testing my ability to mentally compensate for dodgy bootleg sound... it's a really rough audience recording, but it's also a one-time event, and the playing is really nice... Sinclair's bass playing comes through clearer than the drumming... I will have more to say about the new Sun Ra releases from Cosmic Myth Records in a separate posting... I will just say here that they are excellent and are must-haves... Jazz Free is a guitar extravaganza... The Susan Alcorn trio set (with Ingrid Laubrock) is brilliant... Laubrock is so good at pulling off these amazing extended quiet improvisations...
