Willow Beats - Water EP 
Morphine - Good (1992)
Morphine, a trio of saxophone, drums and bass, bridged post-punk/new wave ideologies with down-tempo jazz-pop, basically playing alternative rock music with no guitars. Despite the sound being very jazzy, there's very little soloing. And yet it's just as effective as any album with multiple instrumentalists jamming for 17 minutes with tons of noodling.
Danny Brown - Old
Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP
Big L - Lifestylez Ov Da Poor and Dangerous
Atmosphere - God Loves Ugly
J Cole - 2014 Forest Hill Drive
John McLaughlin - Extrapolation (1969)
>Post-Bop, Jazz Fusion
Extrapolation is a beautiful jazz record with an enchanting atmosphere. It is not guitar jazz similar to Wes Montgomery or Grant Green, but more band-oriented and with a 'looser' approach. There is a magical flow throughout the album and the teamplay of the band is impeccable. A hidden gem.
Hugh Mundell- Africa Must Be Free by 1983 (1978)
>Roots Reggae, Dub
Hugh Mundell was born in 1962, and his debut was released in 1978, when he was SIXTEEN, and it's considered one of reggae's best albums. It's short and consistent, it has high replay value, the vocals/lyrics are very well done (especially for a teenager), the instrumentation is fantastic, and the vibe of the album is about as good as any other reggae album I've heard. I think it's safe to say that if you have any interest in reggae, you need to add this album to your collection as soon as possible. In ironic tragedy, Hugh Mundell was shot dead in 1983 at the age of 21.
Connan Mockasin - Forever Dolphin Love (2011)
>Neo-Psychedelia, Glitch Pop
Highly imaginative psych pop. Connan's high pitched, childish vocals waft over every inch of this album and along with the excellently played music, haunting melodies and very strong songwriting, make for an awesome album. He's sort of like an evil Mac Demarco.
The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza - Danza IIII
The Acacia Strain - Continent
Carnifex - Dead In My Arms
Within the Ruins - Invade
CHUGGA CHUGGA, FUCK YOU MOM AND DAD
Salah Ragab and the Cairo Jazz Band - Egyptian Jazz (1968-73)
>Big Band, Arabic Jazz
It is classical Egyptian music mixed with big band trippy jazz (Ragab collaborated with Sun Ra and others). Also as the band is made up of classically trained military musicians there is a strong march-like quality to many of the tunes. There is also a strong Arabic feel and soul music running through the veins. The production quality is, unsurprisingly, not the greatest, but this is the kind of robust music where it doesn't detract. A great release then that sits well in both jazz and 'world music' collections.
The Cat's Miaow - Songs For Girls To Sing (1997)
>twee, indie pop, shoegaze
Lo-fi indie pop from Melbourne Australia. Very atmospheric and warm. Female vocals.
Fats Domino - This Is Fats (1958)
>Rhythm & Blues, New Orleans Rock & Roll
If you are a fan of New Orleans Rhythm and Blues, Fats Domino is required listening. It’s something like a hybrid between traditional rhythm & blues to rock & roll, and the result isn’t totally displeasing like the how fusing two genres usually turns out to be. In fact, it's pretty excellent. Fats could sing and he could play, and he shows off both of those talents, but it's the fun factor that makes this album what it is. It's loose, it swings, it's a little bit silly at times, and it sounds like Fat had a smile on his face right through. What more can ya ask for?
Yuji Ohno - Cosmos (1981)
Very spacey Japanese jazz. Really cutesy, sounds like something an anime girl would walk down the street to. There's a lot of shitty rips of this out there so don't download it off of rutracker or slsk.
Dale Hawkins - Oh! Suzy-Q (1958)
>Rock & Roll, Swamp Rock
A true legend in his own way, the Louisiana born & bred Dale Hawkins came to this world to teach some lessons 'about simple and excellent rock. Here we have one of the greats of the genre, with some really rough, dirty guitar licks and intense drumming.
it's weird how random albums I find in other places are also really loved on /mu/, when I was just DL'ing just a fuckton of random new releases this became one of my fav now I see it here often
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Cosmo's Factory (1970)
>Swamp Rock, Country, Blues
One of the great American bands of the 60's reached a glorious peak at the dawn of the 70's as CCR put it all together for Cosmos Factory. From the electrifying guitar workout on opener Ramble Tamble to the elegiac album closer Long As I Can See the Light, Cosmo's Factory is an excellent summation of all that was the best about Creedence Clearwater Revival. You've got a gorgeous soul cover in the form of an epic version of I Heard It On The Grapevine, a celebration of psychedelic daydreaming in Looking Out My Back Door, and plenty of other Creedence classics.
Look up Mogollar - s/t
Its been in a few recent sharethreads lately but I cant find a link for it now. Sorry I can't be of more help.
Stardust - Music Sounds Better With You (1998)
Probably one of the best French singles of all time and perhaps the pinnacle of french house music. This is the Roulé release so it includes the radio edit and 12" club mix.
The Blackfoot – The Footsteps
Another 70s Zambia rock group, the Blackfoot band was the flagship band for Ndola Music Parlour when live band music took the country by the storm. This doesn’t have as much fuzz guitar as the Ngozi Family or as much prog stylings as Witch, but it is solid & definitely Zamrock. This record has some traces of traditional Zambian drumming & guitar work, but comes off like an Afropop Creedence.
found it in the archives
Wicked Witch - Chaos 1978-86
>Synth Funk, Compilation
This is a truly odd record that seems to have taken a whole heap of influences, mixed in a dose of oddness and churned out this dirty, funky and downright heavy collection. I suppose it's safe to say that funk is the main influence along with use of some early electronica and a real lo-fi recording aesthetic add to the atmosphere. At times the results are a little off-key and not too easy on the ear "X-Rated" being a case in point. I find it interesting that "Vera's Back," was recorded in 1978, which shows the earlier material had a different focus. This stuff's effed up, like Prince on cocaine.
Sorry bud, its just a single
THEESatisfaction - awE naturalE (2012)
>r&b, hip-hop, Neo-Soul, Nu-Jazz
Do not approach this album with the notion that it will be a fun party or an easy walk in the park, because it most definitely is not. A fresh breath of rare air, they sound like futuristic aliens who have captured the energy of avant-garde hip hop and truly made it their own. Awfully short, it swims into your ears and then ebbs away before you can even really grasp just what you've listened to. One of the most striking things about awE naturalE is just how truly unique it is. Loose comparisons can be made to other artists past and present, but there really is nothing else out there like THEESatisfaction. Original instrumentation and samples are merged together to create the basis of each track. Very heady, cerebral stuff here.
Awesome, hope you enjoy it!
Dave Pike - Carnavals (1962)
>Bossa Nova, Latin Jazz
This compilation contains the albums: Bossa Nova Carnival, and Limbo Carnival
Bossa Nova Carnival is a caressing, sensuous collection of songs by Brazilian composer João Donato, the grittier Limbo Carnival has more of a Caribbean orientation. Afro-Cuban salsa is an influence on Limbo Carnival, but calypso is an even greater influence -- and Pike, taking a hint from Sonny Rollins, combines jazz with calypso on Rollins' "St. Thomas" and Charlie Parker's "My Little Suede Shoes," as well as two songs that were hits for Harry Belafonte: "Matilda" and "Jamaica Farewell."
Ghetto Brothers - Power-Fuerza (1972)
>Latin Rock, Funk, Proto Hip-Hop
The Ghetto Brothers started as a Latin Bronx, N.Y. street gang, but under the leadership of Benjamin Menendez became a positive community organization by using their music to help foster peace between rival gangs. Menendez and his Ghetto Brothers created peace treaties, treated their women respectfully, tutored local children, and hosted block parties. Probably the nicest street gang in history, right? Musically, the Ghetto Brothers sound like one of their famous block parties. It's exciting, carefree, positive, and all around fun. The best album I've shared today.
Baby Face Willette - Face To Face (1961)
An excellent album, great playing on a somewhat unconventional instrument, the organ, with really exceptional saxophone playing backing it up. "Baby Face" Willette plays the organ with gospel influences which are interesting but with a different saxophonist Face To Face might have been just another organ Jazz album. Tenor saxophonist Fred Jackson is scintillating. He makes the album worth re-visiting, bringing out the edge in the other musicians. His sound is tailor-made for Soul-Jazz.
check out Dhafer Youssef, Anouar Brahem and this
L'hijâz car - L'hijâz car
L'hijâz'car is an unusual quartet composed of one kamanche, one upright bass, one bass clarinet and one oud, supported by a percussionist. this configuration allows them to play a very arabic traditional music tainted jazz that is definitely worth the listen for its uniqueness
Gil Scott-Heron/Brian Jackson - Winter in America (1974)
>Soul, Jazz-Funk, Spoken Word
Gil Scott Heron and Brian Jackson are a great partnership - two guys with very compatible styles, both play electric piano (Fender Rhodes of course, and Jackson also plays some regular piano), and they both have a knack for blending jazz and soul to the point that there's no distinction between the two. They're joined here on several songs by Danny Bowens on bass and Bob Adams on drums. There aren't any sweaty funk workouts (not that Brian and Gil aren't capable), and other than the occasional flute popping up here and there, it's a very restrained and understated record, focusing mainly on a set of earthy, jazzy, soul ballads.
Jimmy Ruffin - Ruff 'n Ready (1969)
Jimmy Ruffin's second Motown album is a classic and includes many of his hits. Familiar sounding brass and percussion (if you're a Motown fan), with Jimmy’s vocals easily shimming over the beat, often harsh, yet endearing. There is no filler on this fabulous album, which has to be Jimmy's best. The tracks come from Motown's most prolific period. They are so good, that it is a shame that Jimmy lived in the shadow of those other Motown singers Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder.
Just tried it. Gave me a captcha but it still worked.
La Revolución de Emiliano Zapata - S/T (1971)
>Psych Rock, Acid Rock, Blues
Great guitar driven hard rock with English vocals, and a very crude, garage style of production. This will hold it's greatest appeal among garage fans. It's genuine and fresh. There was so much good music being made in the early 70's that jems like this were overlooked, and didn't get airplay.
Burning Spear - Marcus' Children (1978)
>Roots Reggae, Afro-Jazz
Those who dismiss reggae as a form of music with little depth clearly haven't heard this. Some of the best production I have ever heard on a reggae LP. The sounds are simply huge and so clear. Not only that the melodies and hidden little treats floating around the main rhythms make for a really engaging listen. Add to that some of reggae's strongest songwriting and most recognisable voices make this record one for even the most casual fan. I really do wish there were more records like this in terms of brevity these days too.
Ghorwane – Majurugenta (1993)
In the hot and dusty Gaza province of Mozambique there is a small lake called Ghorwane that never runs dry, even in the hottest season. In 1983, a group of young musicians in Maputo, took the name Ghorwane as they launched their musical career. Today they are one of Mozambique’s most respected bands. Ghorwane chose to base their music on traditional Mozambican rhythms, combined with Afropop and fusion. This is their excellent debut album, with heavy political and societal criticisms tagged with lively, beautiful playing.
The Fugs - The Village Fugs Sing Ballads of Contemporary Protest, Point of Views, and General Dissatisfaction [aka First Album] (1965)
>Folk Rock, Psychedelic, Garage, Beat Poetry
I think The Fugs have to be one of the most under-appreciated groups of the 60s - most people know their name and some of their songs but nobody knows their influence. They must have been the first DIY rock group going - at their early shows they played whatever they could get their hands on, like whacking a cardboard box with a brush for percussion. This isn't an album you put on when you want to hear music. This is for those occasions when you want to laugh and cry simultaneously at the wonder and utter absurdity of the world. I can't believe that something this profane and hilarious came out way back in 1965. It even predates Zappa.
Link Wray - Link Wray
>country rock, indian blues
Wray was a pioneer of rock n' roll in the 1950s, but this album is far removed from his early work. Recorded in a converted chicken shack using stomps, a tambourine, and a can of nails as the percussion because of the limited space. shout out to aeroplane of lsd for sharing it a while ago. i really liked it.
Simon Finn - Pass the Distance (1970)
>psych folk, essential
Songs lurch through psycho-ward strums accompanied by campfire third-eye improvisations. Even the two sides of the album’s cover – a lightly abstracted picture of a scrappy pair walking on a forest pathway headed to the horizon as seen from behind and its psychedelic flip-image with the two figures’ faces exploding in mask-like grimaces as the space around them flares with dreamstate hallucinations – suggests the slow crumble of liminal partitions. I'm not kidding when I say this has some of the most beautiful folk songs I've listened to
More weird Jazz please!
Company - Company 6 & 7 (320)
>Free Jazz, Free Improvisation
>Derek Bailey, Anthony Braxton, the list goes on
I only posted L'hijâz'car, the rest is from other guy(s?)
Morisada Michihiro - Agekunohatemonaku
solo bass, free improvisation from 1979. Morisada Michihiro explores in an interesting way the sonic possibilities of the upright bass during two side-long improvisations, in pizzicato and with a bow, sometimes managing to sound horn-like with the latter
Flower-Corsano Duo -The Four Aims
>Math Rock, Free Improvisation
Sylvie Courvoisier - Lonelyville
>Jazzy Free Improvisation
Weston Adam - Discography (2012-2015)
Blur - The Magic Whip
>Pop, Vaporwave, Post-grunge
Alan Licht - Plays Well (2001) [V0]
>guitar free improvisation, drone, mashup, live
>Alan Licht is an American guitarist probably best known for his work with The Blue Humans, Plays Well juxtaposes two seemingly unrelated songs both clocking in at around 37 minutes, Remington Khan is loose improvised solo electric guitar noodling over a minimal two note loop "...that slides inexorably into a fuzzy noise fest", the playing here is reminiscent of Loren Connors and Jim O'Rourke, The Old Victrola opens suddenly with Licht playing along to an a cappella recording of Captain Beefheart "...which segues coolly into a sort of post-Velvet Underground punkish guitar melody", this continues noisily for a few minutes before cutting sharply to a loop of Donna Summer's Dim All The Lights, "Licht superimposes layers of wailing guitars, gradually building the tension...until the original disco song explodes in all its glory at the 16-minute mark", he eventually plays his way back to a variation on the Beefheart motif that the track opened with, a sufficiently unique listening experience in what could have easily been a fairly typical electric guitar improv album, ~2k listeners
Carl Perkins - Introducing Carl Perkins
from 1956, behold the one and only album released by Carl Perkins as a leader during his 29 years long life. if ODing young was sadly not a rare thing amog jazzmen back then, what makes Perkins interesting is that he was crippled by polio, and played the piano in a very unusual way, with his left hand in a backward position, his arm suspended over the keyboard and using his elbow to play additional bass notes. on this trio setting, he's backed up by the great Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Lawrence Marable on drums
God I can already tell from the samples it's awful.
Various Artists – Invisible Pyramid: Elegy Box (tracks recorded between 2002 [I think] and 2005, labeled as “2004” for ease)
>ambient drone, noise, experimental ambient, drone folk, space rock
>This behemoth of an album clocks in at a whopping 7.5 hours and, due to that, should clearly be listened to in a single sitting in the dark under the influence of various opiates and psychedelics. But in all seriousness, though it’s a long listen, all of the tracks are enthralling and expansive, soft yet powerful. Each track seemingly melts into the next, making the first two discs (around 2.5 hours total) go by surprisingly swiftly. However, the longer you listen, the deeper down into insanity you go. The drones are encumbering with no breaks between each, causing you to lose grip with each passing second. Time dies, just like the animals they are writing elegies for (apparently, each artist wrote a track or a set of tracks and dedicated each to an extinct animal). By the last disc, it’s impossible to think straight, since the drones echo in your head, their incessant presence humming in your brain. The album finishes on a crashing wave and, suddenly, there’s nothing. It shows the transition from life to death and leaves you drained, yet oddly renewed. There’s enough variation to add a little movement to the album, but, overall, it’s very static. It’s definitely an interesting listen, but I can’t say that it’s easy to listen to all in one go.
>6 Discs separately rar'd in the mega folder
Do you have anything similar to this album?
Remington Khan is such a fantastic piece of music and I would love to hear more music in that vein.
Basically requesting experimental solo guitar music I guess.
im high as fuck and y'all niggas posting some great shit
Do you listen to American Primitivism?
If you don't, I strongly recommend that you do.
It's kind of like acoustic folk with oriental influences takes on the concert hall.
Licht is definitely influenced by it.
LIL UGLY MANE - MISTA THUG ISOLATION
2012 YA HEAR ME?
thanks i will poke around and see whats good
also for the anon who dug licht if guitar is what you want Fred Frith is GOAT
Fred Frith - Guitar Solos
The Necks - Next (320)
>This is a very different album compared to their other work.
The Necks - Aquatic (320)
>This time two tracks around half an hour each. I found this set quite easy to listen to.
The Necks - Hanging Gardens (320)
>Perhaps a bit more energetic than their other albums. Grabs you right from the start and doesn't let go until the end.
The Necks - Photosynthetic (320)
>A very minimalistic set, even by the Necks standards.
The Necks - Mosquito/See Through (320)
>I think this is one of the most immersive the Necks albums.
The Necks - Townsville (320)
>Jazz, minimalism, structured improvisation.
The Necks - Silverwater (320)
>Again a very subdued and reflective album (contra Chemist) like Townsville.
Ghost Bath - Moonlover
Anthony Braxton- Eight(+3) Tristano Compositions (1989)
>avant-garde jazz, reinterpretation of standards
>Braxton is best known as a prolific composer but he has also put out several albums in tribute to other composers he admires. This is one of his better ones with interesting, re-imagined versions of Lennie Tristano's compositions.
>Plains of the Purple Buffalo
He tried spamming it, to not success.
Now he's straight up giving us the album.
Nice try, OP. It's still terrible, hilariously desperate greentext notwithstanding.
Brian Charette- The Question that Drives Us (2014)
>organ jazz, post-bop
>Master organist Brian Charette's interesting album from last year uses the linup of 4 horns (flute, alto, tenor, bass clarinet) plus organ and drums. This lineup, along with his exciting original compositions, makes for an interesting release of modern jazz.
Dave Holland and Barre Philips- Music from Two Basses (1971)
>free improvisation, avant-garde
>Holland and Philips are both two masters of the upright bass, both known for their willingness to experiment and excel at just about any style they play in. On this album, the two bassists perform in a duet setting and provide both a satisfying amount of contrast, and an entertaining sense of interplay.
Yosvany Terry- New Throned King (2014)
>Cuban Arara, Latin Cantos, Afro-fusion
>Saxophonist Yosvany Terry composed this music based on cantos from the Arara, a secretive spiritual brotherhood in Cuba and Haiti. The music mixes these rhythms and chants with jazz-based improvisations and harmonic functions for some extremely creative and engaging music.
George Russell- Ezz-thetics (1961)
>avant-garde, jazz composition
>Pianist George Russell presents several of his own compostions, as well as thoughtful re-workings of new compositions by both Monk and Miles Davis. With an excellent band including Eric Dolphy, David Baker, Don Ellis, and Steve Swallow, this is a must-hear for those interested in jazz composition or arranging.
Alex Sipiagin- Equilibrium (2004)
>With the same horn section from Destinations Unknown, but a more swing based rhythm section, this album is a nice mid-point between Sipiagin's earlier swing-based music and his later, more exploratory recordings. It features some very good original compositions, as well as a few great arrangements of standards and incredible improvisation throughout the record.
Piero Umiliani- Il Corpo (1974)
>soundtrack, jazz fusion
>A great original soundtrack from the Italian film. It's got that quintessential vintage 70's sound.
Already have this man, really interesting stuff on it.
For American primitivism, I suggest that you check out John Fahey and Robbie Basho for the classics, and Sir Richard Bishop and anything Jack Rose-related if you're looking for something more modern.
I can give you links if you want.
And hit me up with anything else you have that's licht-related, I'm the same anon.
Does anybody have in 320? Good album but I'll be damned if I can find a good download.
Andrew Hill- Pax (1975)
>post-bop, free jazz
>This session was recorded in 1965 with Hill joined by a fantastic quintet but never released by Blue Note until 1975. The music is full of fire and passion and walks that precarious line between form and freedom with a sort of eloquent danger.
Maurice Ravel plays Ravel (date unknown)
>classical, impressionism, vinyl rip
>Before his death, Ravel “recorded” a number of his piano compositions in piano rolls, which captured his timing and inflection on his pieces. Using “DUO-ART” technology, these rolls were performed and recorded using a Steinway player piano.
noice. I saw them twice, brilliant live band
Takashi Kako - Night music
japanese pianist Takashi Kako, who at the time was studying with Olivier Messiaen in France, recorded this solo album in 1974. the music navigates between classical tainted post bop lines and more free phases, in a style the can make one think of Chris McGregor's solo albums
Red Rodney- Then and Now (1992)
>Red Rodney was one of the greats who played with Charlie Parker often in the early 50's. He had a re-emergence in the 80's and continued to tour into the 90's. This album has his common collaborator Gerry Dial on piano and the young, then-unknown Chris Potter on saxophones. The recording ends with an interesting interview in which Rodney discusses the members of his band and what they bring to the music.
Dave Ballou- Dancing Foot (2004)
>free jazz, post-bop
>Continuing to push the envelope, Ballou presents his adventurous music here with the unique instrumentation of trumpet, 2 basses, and drums. Ballou’s music and approach to improvisation is unique in and of itself, but the concept of two bass players gives this music an even more interesting sound and concept of harmonic freedom.
The Kingston Trio (1958)
>This is the self-titled debut from one of the defining and iconic folk bands. Music-to-listen-to-with-your-dad-core.
>Alan Licht - Four Years Older
>Guitar Improv, Experimental
havent given this a listen but hey its more Licht
Rabih Abou-Khalil- The Cactus of Knowledge (2001)
>Avant-garde, third stream, jazz fusion
>Rabih Abou-Khalil is a Lebanese oud player and composer and here presents some of his most ambitious music. With a 12 piece band culled from some of New York's top jazz players and some players more familiar with Arabic music, Khalil creates a program that is both entertaining and listenable, while being dense and satisfying in both rhythmic and harmonic complexity.
Dude, thanks! Haven't listened to zep in a while, this will be a treat.
I know it's not much compared to an entire discog, but I'll share an album I enjoy
Wired All Wrong - Break out the Battletapes
Grachan Moncur III- New Africa (1969)
>post-bop, free jazz
>Trombonist Moncur leads an all-star group of musicians through a set that stays mostly in the realm of modal post-bop, but with a lot of free improvising. The group includes Roscoe Mitchell, Archie Shepp, Dave Burrell, Alan Silva, and Andrew Cyrille.
Jimmy Giuffre- Free Fall (1962)
>avant-garde, free jazz
>reed player Jimmy Giuffre's earlier music is usually classified as cool jazz, though by the early 60's he had moved much farther into avant-garde and free improvisation. This consists of short tracks with varying levels of structure by trio that includes Giuffre on clarinet, Paul Bley on piano, and Steve Swallow on bass.
Ari Hoenig- Punkbop: Live at Smalls
>A live recording of a quintet led by drummer Ari Hoenig. The group includes some of the biggest talents in the current jazz scene, and they play energetic, rock-influenced jazz with extended, adventurous improvisation.
Gabriel Alegria- Pucusana (2010)
>This sextet, led by Alegria blends the traditional rhythms and melodies of Peru, with other styles of Latin and Central America and with an improvisational language inspired by post-bop jazz.
Fats Navarro- Nostalgia (Released 1958, Recorded 1947-49)
>Trumpeter Fats Navarro is another jazz legend who died at a tragically young age. This recording captures him in his prime and following in the footsteps of his hero Dizzy Gillespie, with intense bop numbers, but also proving capable of a more relaxed, melodic style of playing.
Pierrick Pedron- Cheerleaders (2011)
>progressive rock, experimental sax-led fusion
>Pedron is a French alto saxophonist who grew up listening to classic jazz, as well as classic progressive rock. This album mixes all of those influences, along with a tendency toward experimental electronics and free improvisation.
Chico Hamilton Quintet ft. Eric Dolphy (1959)
>avant garde, third stream, hard bop
>Dolphy joined forces with bandleader and drummer Chico Hamilton in the late 50's and proved a valuable addition to his band. Here, on Hamilton's interesting original compositions the band blends mainstream jazz with classical music and touches of the avant garde. Dolphy's early playing is rich with bebop-isms but already starting to move away from them in interesting ways.
Conrad Herwig- A Voice Through the Door (2012)
>Virtuoso trombonist Conrad Herwig presents some very well-written original tunes played by a stellar quintet. Tenor player Ralph Bowen and pianist Orrin Evans channel the classic Coltrane/Tyner sound at several points during the album.
here you go if you want some more
Denis Colin & la société des arpenteurs - Subject to live
bass clarinettist Denis Colin founded his band Les arpenteurs in the early 2000s, and released this strongly post bop feeling first live recording of it in 2011
