Guillermo Gregorio - Approximately

Blogger's image upload tool stopped working a few days ago, and I want to post this before I leave for a week in the BW. Guillermo Gregorio's Approximately introduced his cross between classical avantgarde and avant-jazz. I think it might be my favorite of all the albums I've posted on Classical Connection so far. HUGE thanks to Eugene for sending me this. Enjoy!

do you have any Gilberto Mendes? it must be out of print, for sure, and it fits your blog just fine
congratulations for the astonishing selection (i've been looking for that Nono for quite some time)

this is indeed very, VERY good.

reminds me a bit of this one of a kind recording of Steve Lacy working with a large ensemble... almost a symphony.

zhao,

Do you recall: which recording is that?

I was thinking of Steve Lacy + 16 - Itenerary. first track is jazzy, but subsequent tracks are much more symphonic, albeit with reeds and (barely) jazz percussion. very cool record.

another very good document in this area but leaning more toward Avant-C. is Franz Koglmann - Cantos I-IV, on Hat.
