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.http://destination-out.bandcamp.com/album/14-love-poems-plus-10-more

There's a great version of it on Marzette Watts' hella out-of-print Savoy record.

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."
