John Surman "Coruscating" (2000 ECM, ECM1702).  Atmospheric jazz,
with JS on soprano and bari sax, bass and contrabass clarinets; Chris
Laurence on string bass, and a string quartet ("Trans4mation").  Nice
to listen to - reminds me a lot of Jan Garbarek.  The contrabass
clarinet shows up in "An Illusive Shadow".

Hi all,

I was doing some last days shopping at the very large Mountain View Tower records.
It used to be that they had a rather full selection of classical (and otherwise) CDs
from contrabass instruments - tubas and contrabassoons, especially. Now, either they
have hidden them (unlikely) or they never bothered to replace sold CDs (more likely)
or there is a vast marketing conspiracy at Tower to not sell interesting recordings
(even more likely.)

So I guess it is "back to on-line shopping" for me  ;-)
