I’ve been on quite a Julius Hemphill festival this week, I bought Five Chord Stud, Fat Man and One Atmosphere a few years back. The CamJazz box really set me off and I’ve been enjoying this immensely.
Fred Frith’s Kick the Dog continues down the same path as old favorites Gravity and Speechless. Henry Cow is an early influential Frith group.
Historic Concerts is probably the only material from the Cecil Taylor box I haven’t heard yet, my interest in the man’s music continues to grow.
