I like the Peplowski version, I think.

It's good.

I've listened to it four times now -- I think it's a case of admiring the arrangement more than actually liking it. He doesn't bite off more than he can chew, but he bites off an awfully big chunk, and it's sort of amazing to sit and listen to him chew it.

The Otomo Yoshihide track is his interpretation of the Ornette track (yeah it's hard for me to hear too):

.ogg??!!? WTF? (yes, I have heard of ogg and vorbis and ogg vorbis, but I don't know what to do with them)

It's just another lossy compression format. Google "ogg vorbis player" and bob's your uncle, or however the saying goes. I use Whamb.

Hello, douchebags. The Billy Bang/Dennis Charles version that Doug Schulkind just played is really good.

Sorry, meant to mention that it was on WFMU. They'll probably have the show up on the archive in a couple of hours.

Ahhh, the balmy ysi days of ILM, how I miss you.

Anyway, just relieved this thread still exists because I have been listening to the Peter Brotzmann version for days without knowing what who it was. Avaialble to listen to and buy here incidentally.

I've decided that Ornette's Lonely Woman is my favourite piece of jazz music. Not a lot seems to come close - or does it? IS there anything else out there as melodic and plaintive and slightly-skewed as this? Big question, I know.

Yes, Cecil Taylor's version of "This Nearly Was Mine."
