One of my first ever uploads to Inconstant Sol, a favourite record and still out of print ... the original post

Support living artists, by purchasing recent releases ....
a few Recommendations..( personal favourites of mine ,would include)
T.Oxley& the celebration Orchestra -featuring Bill Dixon-Soul Note-121284-2-1994
T O& Cecil Taylor-Leaf Palm Hand- FMP,CD 06 1989
Bill Dixon-Vade mecum 1&2- 1994, Soul Note121208-2& 121211-2
Derek Bailey& Tony Oxley- Soho Suites- Incus cd 29/30
NB- For me each side of Incus 08- works well as a suite , indeed its difficult aurally to judge where tracks begin and end so ..Ive left each Side intact without track separation ...that works well for me.
Hopefully more percussion Orientated rips soon...
