  • Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre “Fifteen or Sixteen” from Forces and Feelings – Recorded in late 1970, this is McIntyre’s second release for the Delmark label. Much like his first effort, Humility in Light of the Creator, Forces and Feelings projects a spiritual tone. While it is occasionally more relaxed than his debut, that’s not to say this is McIntyre’s mellow disc — far from it. Forces and Feelings has much in common with the otherworldly vibration Albert Ayler experimented with on his Impulse! recordings. McIntyre’s band for this session was called the Light and featured AACM member Fred Hopkins on bass, Sarnie Garrett on electric guitar, Wesley Tyus on drums, and the vocals of Omolokun.
  • Charlie Haden “El Quinto Reqimiento-Los Cuatro Generales-Viva La Quince Brigada” from Liberation Music Orchestra – Released in 1970 and Haden’s first release as a band leader. The inspiration for the album came when Haden heard songs from the Spanish Civil War. The track featured is three traditional songs arranged by Carla Bley. The 13 piece band includes a whose who of jazz luminaries.
  • James Davis’ Beveled “Flight Path” from Beveled – Chicago trumpeter/composer James Davis’ project. Featuring a unique and beautifully lush instrumentation, this band’s overall sound leans towards a gentle and dark side of jazz and improvised music. While challenging the traditional roles of the instruments involved, Beveled stays tethered to a sensibility of tuneful and rhythmic audacity. The musicians in Beveled are actively involved in many facets of the Chicago music scene, leading and performing in other creative music collaborations. Live concerts features music from the album recorded and mixed by Anthony Gravino in June 2014, newer works, and arrangements of early 20th century French piano music. Released in 2014
  • Julian Priester and Sam Rivers “Mister Major and Mister Miser” from Hints On Light and Shadow – 1997 release on Postcards Records with Tucker Martine joining on “electronics”
  • Schlippenbach Quartett “Black Holes” from Three Nails Left – February 02, 1975, The Quartier Latin, Berlin, Germany – FMP release 1975. Evan Parker: soprano saxophone, tenor saxophone, Alexander von Schlippenbach: piano, Peter Kowald: double bass Paul Lovens: percussion
  • Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre “Anyway You Want It” from Peace and Blessings – This obscure set features passionate blowing by Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre (heard on tenor, flute, clarinet, bass clarinet and percussion) along with the little-known Longineu Parson on trumpet, flugelhorn, flute, sopranino and recorders, bassist Leonard Jones, and drummer King Mock. The quartet performs five McIntyre originals and one by Parsons, and the emphasis is on intense solos and very free improvising. There is plenty of fire displayed on this spirited set. Recorded June 18, 1979 at Barigozzi Studio in Milan, Italy. Released on Black Saint in 1979
  • The Northern Dance Orchestra featuring Ian Carr “In A Mellow Tone” from In a Mellow Tone – If you search through the Radio Times online database, you will find over 3,000 programmes featuring this Orchestra! Here’s just one track from 1966 – The Northern Dance Orchestra, conducted by Bernard Herrmann and recorded in Middlesborough in the early summer of that year. A special arrangement by Neil Ardley of Duke Ellington’s ‘In a Mellow Tone’ (with Gary Cox on tenor sax and Ian Carr on trumpet… the front line of the EmCee Five). This track is on a tape in Neil Ardley’s tape archive and was sent to him after the performance together with a letter including an apology for not including ‘Shades Of Blue’ in the programme for a different concert. Probably Bernard Hermann’s voice, at the end of this recording.
  • Camila Nebbia “El ruido de todo lo que desaparece” from El ruido de todo lo que desaparece – The noise of everything that disappears. “To inhabit absence and memory, to inhabit monstrosity, the multiple versions of ourselves and nothingness.Distorting memories till a new one is formed, feeling time as a suspended structure.” Released August 8, 2022. Camila Nebbia: composition, electronics & prepared saxophone
  • Marco Eneidi, William Parker, Donald Robinson “Barbequed Brahms” from Cherry Box – Eremite Records – Recorded Live September 20, 1998, Mills College Concert Hall, Oakland, California, USA
