thanks corvimax.
someone sent that over to me about the time the black expressions lp was doing the rounds.

blackclassical said...

that would have been me

katonah said...

yes indeed, Greg came up with the good stuff. thanks again man.

picked up another brooks lp last week, a japanese eastwind jobbie. the detroit four. have you got that one?

taro nombei said...

nice one katonah. thanks for this taster.

@ corvimax: great Pullen track but I think not from Duet in Detroit... Surely from the Pullen album on Black Saint.
Love to hear the rest of that if you've got it.

cheers

it's really from 'duets in detroit', wich is a sort of compilation of tracks from different times -1984 to 1989- with different musicians (Randy Weston, Woody Shaw, Don Pullen, Geri Allen). given katonah policy i will not upload it, since is not out of print.
the same goes for the black saint album, where the track 'Healing Force' is 6 minutes shorter and not so intense. anyway, both of them are on soulseek. or choose another place...

Not sure if you'll put this in but like Bud,Monk,Lucky et. al so much suffering.When you hear him on his great CD and see him on PBS "Soul TV" this makes you cry to know it ended this way
