Fantastic free jazz from Czechoslovakia. Live recording I believe.
That’s probably this from my exchange with Frown on your top 50 jazz records

If after looking at it that doesn’t ring a bell that kind of blows my mind. Not in an insulting way or anything but when I was in college there was a huge mystique about these guys that were literally risking their lives to play free jazz in the Soviet Union. The recordings listed on the Wikipedia page were bootlegged into CDs and cassettes with so many misleading titles and ****. I sent paychecks to Leo Records once I saw their catalog.

Much later I had terse email exchange with Leo Feigin himself (I think) about how bull**** it was the records were so expensive. I was super respectful of what he did bringing so much great music to the world but still. Some of those big mail orders from Leo Records were the last big additions to my physical music collection.
However, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t really recorded in Czechoslovakia

LEO RECORDS: CD LR 108: The Ganelin Trio - Ancora Da Capo

Quote:
Part 1 recorded in Leningrad 15.11.1980, part 2 recorded in West Berlin two weeks earlier, which was the first appearance of The Ganelin Trio in the West.

Totally possible. I had it in my endless Spotify list but I have no idea how they got there at this point.

As for where it was recorded...I have it on good authority from a certain guru on this site that it was recorded in Czech but RYM says they formed in Lithuania and the LP was pressed in Czech.

LEO Records is the definitive source.

Ganelin is Lithuanian, the other two Russian. BTW I'd really recommend checking out this one by Chekasin:

Sun Ra - Celestial Love (1984)




A recent (2020) re-release of Sun Ra's "Celestial Love" studio album from 1984, with a bonus track "Drop Me Off in Harlem" which wasn't on the original release.

I’m not sure what to make of that one. I think I’ve heard it before. It sounds kind of silly but maybe I’m failing to transport myself to their perspective.

Gigi Masin - Calypso (2020)

At times gorgeously Balearic and other times menacing and unsettling. Gigi is one of the great sagemasters at blending jazz and ambient and this album is a top contender for me for AOTY.

I listened. I like the way the songs are distinct and well-crafted but still carry the signature features of ambient music that usually carries on for much longer. Also, as you pointed out, it’s nice to hear old school traditional instruments working with the electronics. It fits with what I’ve been in the mood to hear. Great recommendation, thanks.

Glad you like it brother. It came up through a random Bandcamp recommendation and I was surprised at how great it was right out of the gate. Ben Vince on sax doesn't hurt either.
