Np Charles Mingus - Jazz Workshop Concerts 1964-65 (Mosaic)
Fantastic collection of live dates with arguably Mingus' best band.

A huge step down in quality from Revelations, I think. They might as well just have released the (3-sided) Wilful Days single, and discarded the rest of the album, imo.

I figured you wouldn't like this one. It's almost too poppy for my taste. I did like it better than Revelations, though.

Can't upload the youtube links for some reason. Oh well.

NP Dave Alvin & Jimmy Gilmore - Downey To Lubbock (YepRock)

This is a collaboration I didn't see coming but it worked well. They cover Get Together which was made famous by the Young Bloods but written by Dino Valenti. While I was aware of the writing credit I didn't know Valenti wrote it under another name because he was doing hard time in prison.

I don't listen to a lot of jazz nowadays. The time never seems right. When I do listen, I don't listen to a lot of the more edgy stuff, beyond the Bobby Hutcherson/Blue Note early/mid 60s axis of things that found so much favor here when there were more active jazzbos on BCB. And I almost never have time for Charles Mingus, just because his records require a certain headspace and investment, and because they are so rich . . . intense and fiery.

But for now, I've been digging back into that well and it feels like the only thing that makes sense.

NP Dave Alvin - The Third Mind (Yep Rock)

Dave's most adventurous album to date imo. Tribute to West Coast 60s rock plus a 13th Floor Elevators cover. Dave lets it rip on electric gee-tar. Superb band, great cover tunes. Album opens with an Alice Coltrane song and it never lets up. Highly recommended.

Roxy Music

Still stunning after all these years. I don't really have a horse in the race of whether the band was better with or without Eno, but I will say the rockin' first side is better than the Enoesque second. I'm listening to the Steven Wilson 5.1 mix on the box set from two years ago. My fave musical moment is the lengthy passage in "If There is Something." Yowza! Of course, "Virginia Plain" is the best thing here, and it wasn't even on the UK version of the LP.
