i'm not very good at making decisions. when dj-ing, i used to carry about 8 times as many records as i could ever use, cos i could never take anything out of the bag, only add to it. knackered my back doing it too.
i have the same problem with my christmas cd swap selections (not the sore back, the too many tunes thing). It's all going to be spiritual/ eastern tinged/ just generally nice jazz. But, I don't know if much of it has been comped, is too obvious, is considered by other ears to be rubbish. So I'm going to make my selection a wee bit interactive.
I'd like you to let me know which bits you wouldn't want to hear from the list below.
hal singer - malcolm x (jazz version)
james clay - new delhi
randy weston - tanjah/ little niles
jean derome - the moon in me
shamek farrah - waiting for marvin
byron morris and unity - sunshowers
archie shepp - song for mozambique
les mccann and the jazz crusaders - damascus
solar plexus - torremolinos
freedom sounds - behold the day
jerome richardson - no problem
yusef lateef - before dawn
harold land quintet - timetable
the visitors - naima
jack wilson quartet ft. roy ayers - ramblin'
pete la roca - turkish women at the bath
kamal and the brothers - dance
see, it just won't fit onto one cd.
