A top fiver and another obscure one

Here it is, I finally got this one, one of the very best improv records ever and number one record on my want list.

No need for further words, just grab this.

Derek Bailey & Han Bennink: Lijm / ICP 004 (Instant Composers Pool, 1969/71)


And here's the other disc:

Turner and Russell are some of my favorite improv-dudes, so I've been looking for this for some time, being one of their earliest recordings.

Toshinori Kondo / John Russell / Roger Turner: Artless Sky (CAW Records 001, 1980)

Kondo: trumpet
Russell: guitar
Turner: percussion

(Sorry for the absence of a cover shot. There has just been no goddamn daylight around these parts lately.)

enjoy there, and please comment.
