has been trying to work on that for a while but has sadly gotten nothing
but resistance from the band itself. I've heard rumors that might be
changing though so we'll see...

Music to EAt?
Had a very nasty review in Forcedexposure which would put it around
Its pretty cool if you like long Zappaesque guitar stuff with a
looper making up lyrics over it.
The negative review came as a reaction to the press release which was
claiming it to be massively influential on a lot of things it didn't
really seem to be./
Amazon has it listed here.
Np Jega Jazzist Doppelganger
- "Aloha" has been reissued with other material...I believe "Marrying
For Money" was reissued a while back as "REmarrying for money"
Eugene Chadbourne's Parachute label put out some good improv records
in the early 80's...I have a great Transmuseq disc from 1980
called "Direct Waves"...what about the Anthony Braxton LPs on
Arista ? I haven't seen many of those and they are essential in my
opinion...Sackville Records out of Toronto had some great titles by
Braxton, Mitchell and others including solo albums (w/overdubs) by
George Lewis & JUlius Hemphill...also a couple of oddities that
attempt to merge classical avant-garde with improv : "Music Of Our
Time" Bernstein conducting the NY Phil :Feldman,Ligeti, Larry Austin
(with Barre Phillips as a soloist) and (teehee) improvisations by
the orchestra-the liner notes admit they had predetermined cues from
Lennie. This was on Columbia as was Lukas Foss' "Time Cycle" again
w/ Bernstein conducting; each movement of the piece has interludes
'improvised' by Foss' Improvisation Chamber Ensemble (I.C.E.?)-again
it's not FREE improvisation and remains sounding quite serial

REminds me, I was looking up the Town Hall'72 cd on Google after
having lost my copy several years back.
What I found didn't seem to have the same tracklisting as the copy
of the cd I used to have, which had A Jerome Kern song on and came
with a free mini poster from the gig.
Was there a cd from the early 90s that added material that wasn't on
the original lp or something?
