Playlist, Week of 2018-04-29

Lots more new Sun Ra making the scene... always a pleasure... I'm really digging the newly released music from the Cymbals sessions in 1973.... Note that two tracks here also appeared (under different names) on Sign of the Myth... and "The Universe Is Calling" originally appeared as "Jazz and Romantic Sounds" on Out There a Minute... still, it's wonderful to have the entire session all in one place, and in much improved sound... Also thoroughly entranced by Mats Gustafsson's Fire! Orchestra... skronk big-band with great grooves and mesmerizing vocals... Dug up an old cassette I recorded of Arthur Blythe with John Hicks, Steve McCall, and Fred Hopkins at the Village Vanguard... I saw Blythe several times in the '80s, but this was the only time I saw his In the Tradition quartet... really amazing, blistering alto sax... and great to hear McCall in this free-bop/swing context... he is just burning!...
