Another amazing project by John Stevens. The true pioneer of free improvised music.

Two pieces for albert ayler, one in an orchestra setting with some totally mindblowing

arrangements with ao Kenny Wheeler and Maggie Nichols. The other side is truly happening: a quartet setting w trevor watts, nichols, stevens and Ron Herman.

A record that is getting hard to find these days.






ICP , fragments                                     ICP 005

An absolute CLASSIC!

Misha, derek bailey, han bennink and john tchicai. What could possibly go wrong ?
music is overthetop GREAT! Great interaction and wild playing w some very surprsining twists.

I believe this is the 2 nd pressing of this beast.

These music fragments actually are random snippets of a concert/studio performance: These were cut by Misha, then re-arranged in a different order (info from Willem Breuker)

Adress on front is inked… as it was was with part of this printing.

A must have!

Philippe Sarde – les enfants des gates, Vogue (FR)

A quite unknown album with sensational music onboard.

Check the line up: Barry Buy, John Surman, Francois Rabath and Johnny Griffin (!!!).

It IS a weird pairing…. But the music that comes out is nothing else then great!

Originally a soundtrack to a Bertrand Tavernier film.

This is the original first french pressing in amazing condition.









Börje Fredriksson- Börje Fredriksson, Odeon

One of the most amazing sax players ever to emerge from the frozen landscapes of Sweden.

A TOTALLY unique voice and an amazing improviser. His sax tone is truly something ELSE. Must be heard! Based in hard bop territory but with some free flight activities that will make you astonished. Absolute poetry!

Only one LP was released during his lifetime ( Intervall ) and this record came out shortly after his death, only 31 years old. Bobo Stenson and Palle Danielsson backing Fredriksson up in a freakin genius way! The strongest ever recommendations!

Mixed by sound genius Göran Freese!

First US pressing in great shape. Cover has some small wear.


NM- / VG +



The new york contemporary five – vol 1, Sonet

The classic FREE JAZZ group of all time in many´s  and my opinion.

THE NEW YORK CONTEMPORARY FIVE! In a steaming session at the classic danish jazzclub Montmartre. In Copenhagen. Deeply rooted in jazz history and exploring the possibilities of the past and the future together in a free and open context.

But check the balance of the group out… it is just breathtaking. The individual voices of John Tchicai, Don Cherry and Archie Shepp are so strong and deep…but works together like ONE unity. And the drumming of JC moses on those sessions are absolute killer!

This is truly amazing music. FREE music!!! Monk and Ornette pieces and original pieces in a highly and extreme musical mix and outing!

Original first danish pressing w red sonet labels. An album that shows up very seldom these days!!!

This is actullay one of the strongest records ever of Archie Shepp – and that should tell you someting!

In really great condition. An absolute MUST HAVE!

2 Internationales new jazz meeting aug burg altena   JG records LP

This is it.

This is the bomb.

This is the one that never shows.  I ve seen only two copies ever. JG records mania. That label did their records in such small quantities. BUT, the content on those releases….. HOLY SHIT! They all RULE!!! And they are all extremely RARE!

But you need them all… that is how it works.
beacuse this particular one has a track (a whole beautiful LP side) by the classic Peter Brötzmann Trio w Van Hove and Bennink that will make your days and nights shine ultra bright, that will make your mind implode, that will make your lp collection looks like pure MAGIC, that will make your life just … beautiful (if you own it )!

The brötzmann track is  - in our taste – the best Peter Brötzmann ever on vinyl!!! EVER!!! WE KID U NOT!

This is brutal, high energy, super rad interaction – BEAUTY!

This is as good as it gets!

And the rest of this 2 lp set is also extremely great and full of creative music:

Seite 1: Peter Brötzmann Trio

Seite 2: Alan Skidmore Quintet & Mike Osborne

Seite 3: Thomasz Stanko Quintet + New Jazz Ensemble `71 & Karin Krog

Seite4:  Albert Mangelsdorff Quartet & The Trio + John Surman, Barre Phillips, Stu Martin

EXTREMELY RARE! Maybe the rarest of ALL  brötzmann releases —- and the BEST!!!!

Albert Ayler – Bells – ESP


Everything with this record makes me smile.

The music, the cover, the vinyl, the silk screen print…and all of the variations that exists of this amazing LP! Very very collectible since many different colors of the vinyl exists… and as well many different versions of the cover. All different colors!  Musically – one of the strongest vinyls ever in the free jazz history. We kid u not. Ayler is RIPPING!

Great condition. The version is the classic black cover with yellow silk screen print and with the with white transparent vinyl with a red screen print.

VG+ / VG +






Urban Hansson – Emphasis on Jazz, Dragon

Classic to be!

A totally mindblowing LP that is becoming rare to find these days. It has one of the earliest abstract free improv sax / drum duets ever recorded in Sweden! The rest of the album is a wonderful variation of different takes on what jazz is or could be. Beautiful arrangements and solo activities. Contemporary jazz, mainstream and abstract improv… all mixed together on a fantastic LP that blow our minds!








Dewey Redman – look for a black star – fontana



Free jazz with the mighty Dewey Redman in great form. A still very underrated tenor saxplayer that is at his best on this piece of an amazing vinyl.

With sensational drumming from eddie mooore! This lp SWINGS!

And the tenor tone of redman can melt minds and civilizations, as we know them. The Redman trademarked vocalizations made on this record are just SCARY!

Redman is taking his experiences of working with Ornette and making something highly unique with it all.

Recomended!!! Strong first press.

SORRY – TRADED! may 11th





Trond Botnen w Svein Finnerud  – Multimal – polydor ( NOR)


CLASSIC to be!

The sensational Svein Finnerud Trio is one of the most important but still rather unknown units of Norwegian freer music. and this is for sure the most unknown lp in their recorded legacy, of all their recorded documents. Together here with the amazing sax player and free mind of Calle Neumann and poet Trond Botnen. Seriously amazing jazz & poetry project that really interacts. And a record that NEVER shows up these days.

Music is a KILLER!

Highest possible recomendation!

So this is the original 1st edition box with the beautifully packaged 3 lps. A MUST HAVE!









Bengt Ernryd – Musik – magnum

A CLASSIC to be!

Very early jazz experiment from the swedish mastermind and trumpeter Bengt Ernryd!

Graphic scores and odd arrangements and a genius cover makes this LP an absolute favorite and a must have.

The 1st pressing is impossible…. The 2nd is rare enough.

Bengt Nordström – Now is the “Frippe” time, Dragon lp (SWE)


A late and great Nordström album.

After the classic bird notes albums of the 60´s….(that will be popping up here later…. Promise….) which are impossible to find nowadays. Nordström didn’t record for years.

This document is a great example of the Nordström logics. A live recording w comrades Peeter Uuskyla and Björn Alke a.o. scat singing, contrabass clarinet insanity and related activites… this is a great album.

Lacy´s playing is so precise and so free. Waldron is there, coloring it up.

Pianist laying the foundations around the quintet. Not the opposite.

Extremely great music. Highly Recommended .




Charlie mariano/ Lee Konitz  a.o.– altissimo,  RCA ( JAP)


A very very interesting album.

Rare and hard to find now. And utterly strange… with the four altos finding new paths for the instrument…. Backed up by the  great rhythm section  of Swedish bass maestro Palle Danielsson, dutch drum tornado Han Bennink and the free piano playing of Joachim Kühn. This is an album to check out!

Jazz….but out of balance… just a bit….




Steve Lacy – dreams, saravah (FRA)


Another classic Steve Lacy LP. With his favoured regular group at the time, but augmented with guitar maestro Derek Bailey. That addition is really creating some special moments  in  the music!

A box… THE box… that has it all!

Music is a monster!  Packaging is genius.

One of the greatest documents of the early European Free Jazz scene. Brutal and beautiful.

This is the very first release. The 3 Lp´s comes in plain white innersleeves in the cardboard box, with its buyers name and stamps on the cover. Numbered edition of only maximum 200 copies.. perhaps less. This is nr 32!

The records are in great condition NM- .

The only minus… is the tape on the spine of the box, see picture. and some wine beling spilled in the right down corner of the back of the box…. but….. but….but… we tell you… this is a legendary release!

Here is the thing:


Peter Brötzmann was and is a very active visual artist. In the very early days of Fluxus  he was working for some time as an assistant to the great Korean artist Nam Jun Paik!

He was among other things preparing the famous prepared piano of Paik´s…

Also assisting at a famous happening / exhibition at Gallerie Parnass. Where a huge amount of Fluxus events were held in  early 60´s.

Paik had prepared a weather balloon in the gallery room

Filled it up with air. Balloon expanding and filling every inch of the gallery room. No space for visititors.

Everyone standing outside at the opening of the exhibition. Talking, drinking, hanging…  looking at the balloon filling the windows and doors of the gallery…

…and one person smoking a cigarette a bit too close to the Balloon….


Balloon in a thousand small pieces.

End of story…. (almost)

Brötzmann was afterwards allowed to collect the small rubber pieces of the balloon and also got  Mr Paiks permission to use the fragments in a piece of his own:

The poster that is included in this box!!!!!!!!!

We kid you NOT!

Attached on the beautiful poster of Brö – design, is one of the original pieces of the rubber pieces from the balloon of  the  exhibition of Mr. Paik!

So, what you get with a very serious trade offer… is not only an amazing musical document of one of the most important groups at its time , but also an original piece of art by Nam Jun Paik!

This story is not well known. And the story is here being verified and told, with the kind permission of Mr. Brötzmann himself.

Only very serious offers please….

TRADED Immediately!




good luck!

Apr.29, 2012

in order to celebrate this new page of discaholic corner in a correct way — we are hereby presenting the LARGEST trade list so far… some amazing Saturn records… some very rare and unexpected polish vinyls with HEAVY music… an EXTREMELY rare PING EP….and some other bombs…. another copy  of a SUPER RARE Joe McPhee vinyl… some insane japanese 12″´s … and more….and more… and even more….

this is a TRADE list —- check the list and offer me trades for any of the records offered— the first one with a good enough trade gets the goods!!!

A BIG UPDATE — will be presented in early summer… with all records that are still availabel from the old lists.

“one piece of vinyl per day keeps the doctor away”… according to fellow discahlic collegue Olof Madsen….


Putte Wickman – jöns 6008, 7″ vinyl (SWE)

a very interesting swedish jazz ep… with one of the first appearances of trombone genius Eje Thelin.

This might be, according to DC, the best and most creative Putte Wickman vinyl. All the members are playing amazing and the great arrangements are made by Thelin himself. Harry Bäcklund is a real hidden Swedish secret – absolutely mindblowing tenor playing…. melodic poetic beuty! A rare to find treasure on the obscure Jöns label.

VG+/ VG  ( cover has some diffuse lamination problems, see picture.)







Monica Zetterlund – en valsmelodi, philips 433 452, 7″, (SWE)

A very nice EP by the greatest  scandinavian singer, all time: Monica Z. The Orchestra is led by the great trumpeter and arranger Bengt Arne Wallin. Super sweet melodies and the voice is just as wonderful as always… not the rarest of Z´s vinyls…. but one of the most charming one!!!





Andrew Hill – after dark / Down Pat – Ping 1003 , 7″, (USA)

a bomb…. when did u see this one last time?

this is what we write about this jewel of early chicago free jazz history:


A magnificent piece of vinyl. A true treasure.  Recorded october 1956. A very young Andrew Hill playing with local Chicago musicians… legends to be, all of them. On a tiny tiny doo- wop label in Chicago! There are other releases on the Ping label that includes Hill backing up different vocal groups. But this is the one to go look for.

Two fantastic sides were cut, both with the Art Ensemble of Chicago bass player Malachi Favors rockin his bass in a steady beat and with great drummer Wilbur Campbell swingin like mad. Andrew Hill is playing organ on one track, in a fantastic way, that makes us wish he would have been doing that a bit more during his long career as one of the main renewer of contemporary jazz!

Side A features the permanent Arkestra member Pat Patrick in one of rare performances outside the Arkestra. Patrick is handling his Bari axe as very few had done at this period in jazz. ”Down Pat” is a stunning piece with swing, heat and some very creative soling! Also a great introcuctionary solo by Von Freeman here! a freakin fantastic tenor solo, way ahead of its time actually..

Side B features Chicago´s own Von Freeman, of New Apartment Lounge – fame. This is a very early recording of Freeman, but you can hear all the typical signatures; the chicago tone, the delicate but still advanced phrasing and an inventive melodic journey over all! fantastic!

Very few copies exists of this extremely rare 7” and they are usually pretty beaten up. This is understandable… people have been playing this record repetedely, since it is so GOOOOD! A very interesting example of early (re)search of musical freedom in the Windy City of Chicago, where both Sun Ra Arkestra and AACM had their headquarters, building up the Jazz to come.


Excellent additional info on PING records can be found here:


Andrew Hill – piano and organ

Von Freeman – tenor sax

Pat Patrick – baritone sax

Malachi Favors – bass

Wilbur Campbell – drums


so…serious offers only…

this record came without a cover and has been played a lot over the years. no skips, but surface noise and some light crackles…

G+ /



Inga Brandenburg – Herzlichst, Inge , decca DX 2145 , 7″ (GER)

one of the most interesting and creative singers in Europa: Inga Brandenburg. In a session with the GREAT bari sax player Helmut Brandt! recorded in 1960, this is a must have for all jazz vocal fans! very rare 7″… but worth looking for. great arrangements and great soloing as well.

record and cover is n great shape.

VG++/ VG++





Jazz jamboree – 66, Muza XL 0342, LP  (POL)

this is a sensation… music is mindblowing and extremely interesting from historical and musical points of view!

One of the earliest recorded outputs of Jan Garbarek!!! In a duo with the late and great Swedish bass player Kurt Lindgren ( of Cecil Taylor Unit fame!) — the music is something else – a great communication between the two in a unique duo setting. The back side of this rare vinyl is a spectacular duo with Lindgren and piano legend Mal Waldron… also just a great example of extreme jazz interaction!

These duos are followed by an amazing quartet w Lindgren and a young Jan hammer playing with the old violin maestro Stuff Smith! Spectacular!

Brother to Brother feat. Joe McPhee , Yoke Free YF – 1 , LP (USA)

the McPhee bomb….

we had this LP offered in the past… hell broked loose… since this Lp literally doesn´t exists. in no discographies of McPhee… and it was made on demand… in an extremly limited run. The LP was only seen locally, since you had to order it from the producer, at site.

Recorded by Craig Johnson, of CJR – fame ( records with Mcphee – nation time, underground railroad etc etc ) and with a very unusual setting for McPhee.. playing recorder with an unknown electric piano player… in this amazing, totally wonderful Play…. with some outer space contributions from the local chicken farm… readings, music, chickens and a variety of recorded sounds… this is a WEIRD one! and totally beautiful!!! cover is amazing… and the music is even more then that!

still with shrink wrap… but the first track has a one minute light crackling… from a pressing error… believed to be on all copies. after the firts minute , the vinyl is basically mint… never played.

NM– / M




Berndt Egerbladh – Nybyggarland , Sonet 2543, LP, (SWE)

a 1973 recording with late and great swedish piano player and composer Berndt Egerbladh!

His trio record Schizo , might be the most sought after ( and it IS fantastic trio music!!!!) — but this one is an odd one… music is borrowed and taken from Egerbladhs home ground Norrland! traditional fold music transposed into modern jazz with soem great contributions by Bertil Strandberg on trombone and the mighty Sten Öberg on the drums!!!

and amazing record in great condition!

VG++ / VG ++







Sabu Toyozumi Unit – The masterpiece, ALM UR 4, LP (JAP)

a japanese bomb… this time the great drummer sabu toyozumi in , what is considered by many including DC, the best vinyl of his. Muisc is complety HAPPENING!

Great and creative free jazz recorded 1976 with dedicated pieces to Eric Dolphy and Kauro Abe a.o.

ripping saxes and hard hitting trombone action all engineered by the free floating drumming by maestro Sabu!!!

the “raga of black key” is as hard hitting as free jazz gets — a complete KILLER tune!

a highly sought after free jazz lp and one of the hardest in sabu´s discography!






Günter Christmann… , Moers Muisc 01070, LP  (GER)

monster record by maestro Christmann. this one beats the MOST! This Lp is a very particular one in the persistent Christmann discography, with mostly very particular solo and ensemble activity…. this monster disc features Herr Christmann on a various amount of instruments… double bass, trombone, spoken word, crackle box, radio, typewriter…. you name it! and teh music is astonashing! a masterpiece of experimental music!

an all time favourite of DC´s !!!

not the rarest— but a MUST HAVE!!!!






Bratislava jazz days / w Peter Brötzmann Quartet, opus 9115, 2 LP, (cze)

A rare 2 lp set… with one track by an odd group of Peter´s. a Quartet with britsih piano player Keith Tippett, vocalist Julie Tippett, Willi Kellers and long time Brötzmann collaborator Johannes Bauer on trombone.

music is wild and going all directions at the same time until peter shows clearly what direction is the one to take! and odd one… but beautiful and killin!

the rest of this album is a variety of  music, incl a great track by Shannon Jackson´s decoding society and a variety of eastern europe free jazz and even a swedish  group trying their wings: Wail.

a vinyl for the brötzmann completists and others…..

VG++ / VG++






Lasse Werner  & Christer Boustedt – kropp & själ, dragon lp 2,  (SWE)

this is Swedish jazz history… two of the greatest jazz anarchists, instrumentalists, improvisers, jazz – actors and human beings…. werner & boustedt in a very close discussion… playing duo with piano and various keyboard instruments and alto sax + bass sax… examing be – bop and related matters in a very free and loving way.

this is music to LOVE!

the 2nd dragon record that  came out and a CLASSIC one! amazingh interaction and amazingly FUN!!!

this copy seem to be never played.







Yuji Takahashi & masahiko Sato- samarkand, denon 7111, LP (JAP)

an amazing study in improvisation…. one acoustic side : samarkand ….and one electronic side :Taklamakan – Lob Nor… and what a study!!! the duo is beaming of curiousness and energy!

takahashi ( of cage fame…) and sato is really taking it far away! one of our all time fav japanese experimental records. recorded  in 1974. the a – side on two grand steinways and the b- side on prepared piano, EMS, AKS, Mini Moog, Mini Korg and Rhodes….. totally KILLING music!!!

this is the 1983 denon pressing. 2 nd press of a classic free jazz / experimental monster!

Jazz Jamboree, vol 2 – 67 , muza 0444, LP (POL)

here it is again… the BOMB! i cant tell you how checked we were when we found out WHO is actually playing on the beast… therefor , DC buys every copy of this LP when we have a chance… and put it here for trade….

this is waht DC is writing about this record:


A BOMB! A jazz bomb…

Because…. this line up of this Manfred Schoof Quintet is nothing else then a sensation!

The record cover does not give any information other then “Manfred Schoof Quintet, West Germany, playing Oleo by Sonny Rollins”.

Discussing this  1967 tour of the Manfred Schoof Quinet with Mr Parker gave us some sensational information regarding the line up… Schoof, Evan Parker, Schlippenbach, Niebergall and Bennink!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And the music IS a bomb! Oleo is treated with respect, creativity and FIRE! The energy is wild and the solo works by Parker, Schoof and Schlippenbach is nothing else then a sensation. And Bennink is on fire… This is JAZZ. This is WILD JAZZ. This is FREE JAZZ.

A very interesting historical document as well, regarding that this music was recorded already in 1967, when the collaborations between the free scenes in Germany and England, as well as Holland , only just had started. Globe Unity had just started its activity and Machine Gun by Peter Brötzmann was yet to be recorded.

This record is actually not extremely hard to find, since the information of the line up has been well hidden… this is something for all you Parker and Bennink completists out there! A record to be sought after…

Evan Parker has some Archie Shepp DNA it seems and the Ayler quotes before the wild drum solo by Bennink is astonishing…. Wild!!!!



Manfred Schoof – trumpet

Evan Parker – tenor sax

Alex von Schlippenbach – piano

Buschi Niebergall – bass

Han Bennink – drums

Franz Koglmann w steve lacy, bill doxon…  pipe  152, (AUT)

once again,..  a bomb….. a bomb….we managed to find another unique copy of this very rare lp, with handmade cover and signed by Koglmann…. complete with book and all….

we cant tell you how great this one is… and how rare…

500 copies were made… but this one almost never floats…

popsike has more to say:

Ultra rare self-released LP by Franz Koglmann on his own Pipe label. Edition of only 500 copies – each with a unique handpainted cover. This is signed by Koglmann on the back cover. Features guests Bill Dixon and Alan Silva on side A (Dixon composes the side long piece entitled “For Franz”, while side B features Steve Lacy. This copy is in pristine condition – like new. Top copy of a top notch free jazz rarity. 

A short history of this record
Brass player and composer Franz Koglmann would eventually be courted by a top-notch jazz company funded by a Swiss bank, then become A&R director for Between the Lines, a German label also funded by a bank. But back when he put out this album by himself, there were no banks to back him up and everything was done by hand, literally. Lucky fans who can scramble up a copy of the original vinyl pressing will be the proud owners of a totally handmade piece of work, the paper collage design glued and stamped on the front cover and the liner notes literally written individually on each copy in magic marker. And there were lots of notes to write as well, because the album collects pieces from three different sessions, with three different ensembles. The centerpiece of the album is the lengthy collaboration with Bill Dixon. It was Koglmann’s second recorded collaboration with a major jazz figure, but Dixon is a totally different kind of animal than Koglmann’s previous guest star, Steve Lacy. Dixon’s legendary uptightness when doing projects such as this creates an inhibited feeling that no one is able to shake, and the solo passages of Koglmann’s were apparently written out by Dixon, who didn’t want another trumpet player improvising on the session with him. For an earlier session, recorded in Paris, Lacy is back on board and for the final track the fantastic electronics player Gerd Geier is on board, although with slightly less anarchistic effect than on his previous album with Koglmann, Flaps.

Jazz in Transition  – Transition TRLP 30 , (USA)

with Sun Ra Arkestra, art blakey´s messengers, cecil taylor trio, coltrane… etc etc…

a WILD one… what a combination of groups… legendary anthology with unique music taken from various transition albums.! complete with book and all.

music is of course without any doubt…. FANTASTIC! an amazing sample of what was actually going on around MA and Ill in the mid 50´s…. wonderful and swingin!
