Playlist, Week of 2017-11-12
The Henry Threadgill sweep continues, this week with a large chunk of early Sextet records, all of which are brilliant... in many ways, these early LPs on the About Time label are my favorite Threadgill recordings (especially Subject to Change)... they share a lot sonically and organizationally with the early David Murray Octet records (which Threadgill played on)... Finally checked out the new remix of the Beatles Live at the Hollywood Bowl album... I guess it's an improvement... at least the crowd sounds are reduced somewhat... and of course it's great to have "You Can't Do That" as a bonus track!... so: why not just release all of the 1964 and 1965 Hollywood Bowl recordings, instead of just recreating an album that George Martin didn't care much for putting together in the first place?
