Monk -- Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960 (music recorded in '59, used by Vadim as his soundtrack the following year, first time released in any format, 2 CDs + huge booklet. (The music from the party scene by Duke Jordan and Art Blakey has been released before, not on this set.) Set includes music not used in the film.

The novelty here is the twin tenors, with Barney Wilen joining Charlie Rouse (along with Sam Jones and Art Taylor).

No new tunes, but a great band, and some wonderful extended piano solos. Monk is in superb form on this one!

I feel both giddy and pompous like the long ago poster (upic?) who would throw out those silver Philips Prospective record cover pics prompting Ruairí to jump in about how silly those records really were.

I finally checked out the Scissor Girls (I think Mudd recommended them to me several years ago).
Together with that come Bride of No No, Dot Dot Dot and Zeek Sheck (all of them pretty much complete).
Still trying to find a copy of 0th's "Tammy". Looks like I'll have lots of fun during the next few weeks/months.

If you know similar stuff, please let me know. Maybe it's new to me.

Sergey Kuryokhin & Keshavan Maslak ‎– Dear John Cage...

I have 29 discs by Sergey and this is a late outlier, radically different from anything else in his catalog, minimalist, hypnotically meditative . . . might have been a whole new direction had he not died so young. Maslak is mostly on bamboo flute on this one, sometimes on 'altered miniature guitar.'

BILLY BANG: EAST MEETS WEST / FOUR SEASONS

Late career peak for Billy Bang, with Shoji Hano on drums and Kimie Sakaki on koto. Some of the sections have the intensity of Bang's masterpiece, Commandment, while others have a gentle Asian breeziness, like this one:

Picked up a couple more Lescalleet TIWIDs, have to say these are fairly reliable and inventive even if the arc of each one is often the same e.g., screwed encores. Stock music. Like Lifetime movies.

New Bill Callahan 2LP, not the over-produced turd that preceded it, on the lo-fi acoustic country end, should've been 1LP. I swear I don't know how he came up with Apocalypse which was my most listened to record of 2011. Saw him live even at Duke a couple years ago and it was BRUTAL. C+/B-. He talks about Bill Bixby in one song. But "and there's renovators renovatin'" about his house in a song about his current family life, whiter. Again how Apocalypse exists befuddles me.
