I thought I might use my tower loyalty card on a nice copy of Moanin' by the jazz messengers. They had five different editions of this album so I consulted the Steve Hoffman forums for guidance and it seems the good version is very expensive and not available in the shop anyway. Then I remembered a previous occasion when I didn't buy some Miles Davis album because they had multiple different pressings and it was just too much trouble to do the research. I bought Deciphering The Message by Makaya McCraven instead.

Don Rendell and Ian Carr Quintet - Shades of Blue. British group. Ian Carr featured on the thread here a while ago. Picked this up over the weekend. Great album.

'Veatrice' [Written by Matana Roberts]


'Colonial Mentality' [Written by Fela Kuti]


'Wonder Twins' [Written by Chad Taylor]


Picked this cd up secondhand in Spindizzy a while back - released on thrill jockey in 2004. Sticks & Stones' Shed Grace.

Trio consisting of Josh Abrams, bass [Natural Information Society], Matana Roberts, alto sax, clarinet and Chad Taylor, percussion [various incarnations of the Chicago Underground group, and guest on a heap of Chicago post-rocky stuff]

I remember I bought a ticket to see Matana Roberts, and turned up to catch the last three minutes of her set. I've been meaning to check out some of her solo stuff properly for the longest while.

Whole album is worth a listen. Phenomenal playing, and clean recording despite sounding well, live.
