Update on Nessa Records Reissues, Gillespie Big Band With Monk

Word is that we'll probably see the following reissues from Nessa Records in several months: Roscoe Mitchell's Nonaah (with bonus material), Charles Tyler's Saga of the Outlaws, and Wadada Leo Smith's Procession of the Great Ancestry. That's quite a haul of prime mid-1970s and early-1980s avant-jazz. Also, still forthcoming from Uptown Records: a collection of Dizzy Gillespie's 1946 big-band broadcasts with a certain Mr. Thelonious Monk on piano. Much of the work on this purportedly 2-CD set is done, but there's no firm release date yet; I'll post more info as it becomes available. (You can hear one of these broadcasts on the Night Lights program Side Monk.)
