Ray Mantilla Space Station and Steve Grossman.
Recorded February 1986, Bologna, Italy. Red Records.
Another monster helping of Mantilla following on from Bacoso's banging drop over at Orgy in Rhythm. The high quality continues here, with some added spice from Steve Grossman on Star eyes, Eronel and Laye. Caminos de Macchu Picchu is probably the pick of the cuts, however if i was Simon, i'd dim the lights at the next Afrolounge, turn on the smoke machine, then hit em hard with Synergy at full tilt. No shit eating grins were allowed on this session, serious gears from start to finish. Can anyone come up with his other 2 albums on Red reocrds, Hands of Fire or Dark Powers ...
1; 06:31 Caminos de macchu picchu
2; 05:19 Piasaje
3; 10:23 Star eyes
4; 02:28 Synergy
5; 04:55 Brother Ray
6; 08:53 Eronel
7; 08:40 Laye

Buddy Rich; A Different Drummer
A first time contribution from Solomon. Big band business drving along at 200 miles an hour, but all the better for it. Heaven on their Minds is lifted from the jesus christ superstar OST, and Straight no chaser is fast and furious to say the least. There is a tenuous link to the Don Thompson post, in that, Joe LaBarbera's brothers John and Pat appear here. Definitely worth a couple of spins.

Brasil: Escola do Jazz. Gone Global DJ's Choice. PRP-8376
Straight no chaser compilation by gilles peterson and paul bradshaw.
Toshiba EMI Limited, 1994
Does anybody have a rip of this rare compilation
(el goog, wara katsu, arkadin, ish, simon, reza, bacoso)
The tracks aren't that difficult to trace, but i've never managed to track a copy down.
Glad to say, the link has graciously been provided by Simon (never enough rhodes) Didn't think i'd get any reaction for a long time, but simon's turned it around in a few hours! Many thanks again Simon, top man.

The Abandonment of Everything Superfluous.
While listening to this unique music, in an attempt to find a description, i have come to the end of the recording. Start to finish, this is atmospheric, intense and addictive.
Take time to hear this, highly recommended.
