  • ALL ABOUT THE NEW ITALIAN PROGRESSIVE RELEASES!


  • Altare Thotemico: Selfie Ergo Sum. Ma.Ra.Cash Records (MRC086). Sept. 2020. New album based on three partitions of being alive: what you have, what you are and how you appear. A record that, once again, overrides stylistic boundaries, able to move from a metal sound to the Area Italian prog school or the Anglo-Saxon school of IQ, with strong lyrics in Italian that feel like real punches in the stomach, and a music that isn't afraid of experimentation and a continuing search for details. A complete, mature work built on 9 tracks that will satisfy even the most demanding palates!
  • Ancient Veil: Unplugged. Lizard (LZ0165). Street date: 15-10-20. This new CD presents eleven pieces performed live in three different concerts. Seven pieces are performed in an acoustic trio composed by Alessandro Serri, Edmondo Romano and Fabio Serri, while four pieces are performed with the whole band, together with Massimo Palermo on bass and Marco Fuliano on drums. Especially noteworthy are the portion of the "Rings of Earthly Light" suite in an unplugged version revisited in its structure and arrangements, and the presence of three unreleased songs. The recordings took place in 2017 and 2019.
  • Arti & Mestieri: Essentia (Live In Japan). 2CD + DVD. Sfera Entert (SFE01). Nov. 2020. In 2019, the concert project "Essentia" was born, the group's first challenge focused on their more jazzy musical essence, playing with great balance between the Mediterranean-inspired melody, the always sought-after and open harmony and the intense and original rhythm, with a quintet formation that includes two historical components of the original formation, Furio Chirico and Gigi Venegoni, together with Piero Mortara, Lautaro Acosta and Roberto Puggioni. Live In Japan is a magnificent record production: the entire recording of the Arti & Mestieri concert on May 18, 2019 at the prestigious Jazz Rock Legends, the fourth sensational return of the band to the land of the Rising Sun. A decidedly rich lineup, with the performance of a selection of songs from the recent masterpiece Universi Paralleli (2015), original arrangements of instrumental hits from the most important historical records such as Tilt (1974) and Giro di Valzer (1975) as well as the first performance since I live in the world of historical gems such as "Danza di Luna" and "From North to South" all recorded and filmed with the exceptional "custom-made" technique aiming to reproduce the original sound of the 70's band. This splendid boxset contains all the work as well as the performance of two improvised songs in the breathtaking finale of the event, played together with Patrizio Fariselli Area Open Project: "The Wind Cries Mary" (J . Hendrix) and "King Kong" (F. Zappa); two protagonists, two legendary groups in the history of Italian music, a path always carried out with coherence, intellectual and artistic integrity.
  • Balletto di Bronzo: The Official Bootleg. Black Widow (BWR234-2). Street date: 02-10-20. Being tired of seeing bootlegs floroushing anywhere without being consulted, Gianni Leone & Co have now taken the decision to produce and release this album, using the recording of their concert on May 31 st, 2018 at L'Asino che Vola in Rome. This "Official Bootleg" pays tribute to the actual line-up, which Leone consider to be the best of all of them so far, with Riccardo Spilli on drums and Ivano Salvatori on bass.
  • Barock Project: The Boxset. Immaginifica (ARS IMM /1042). Street date: 22-02-21. Eighteen years after the birth of the band, Barock Project release a box set that contains their first works and the latest Seven Seas. Of the 6 CDs included, 5 are in special edition, entirely remastered by Luca Zabbini. Mysterious Voices and Rebus are also completely remixed from the tracks of the original projects for an even more exciting sound experience. The photos taken during the recording period and the telling of the story are included in each CD. The box set includes: Mysterious Voices, Rebus, Coffee in Neukölln, Skyline, Detachment and the latest Seven Seas work, plus 5 new bonus tracks!
  • Celeste: Il Principe Del Regno Perduto. Mellow Records (MMP 548). March 2021. "The Prince of the Lost Kingdom" is the 2nd album of the renewed Celeste (reconstituded in 2017 after a long break of almost 40 years!) and also strangely enough the third in their entire career, if we except the archive recordings released in 2020! The line up is still the same as on the previous album from 2019, with Ciro Perrino - handling a dozen or more keyboards, including Hammond organ, Mellotron, piano, Solina, a number of different synthesizers, small percussion and playing the lead vocal role - alongside drummer Enzo Cioffi, bassist Francesco Bertone, Mauro Vero on acoustic and electric guitars, Marco Moro on flutes, recorders, tenor and baritone sax and violinist Sergio Caputo. In addition, numerous other instrumentalists and singers are present in all tracks, playing saxophones, guitars, piano, clarinet, ethnic instruments and more.
  • Celeste: Flashes from the Archives and Oblivion (Just a Collection of Antiques and Curious). Mellow Records (MMP554). May 2020. Alternative versions of pieces already published, others never previously published, studio tests that testify to the genesis and development of a specific theme; in short, material not only for fans and inveterate collectors of Celeste but songs that testify the various stages of the band's history, from a decidedly symphonic initial approach to the attempt, common to many Italian groups of the time, to approach jazz / rock with a Mediterranean origin through experimental soundtracks.
  • Claudio Simonetti's Goblin: The Devil Is Back. Deep Red (CDDR011).
  • Claudio Simonetti's Goblin: Profondo Rosso. Deep Red. Street date: 28-08-20. 45th anniversary edition with lavish cover! CDDR006 CD and LPDR006 LP.
  • Corpo: III. Lizard (LZ0158CD). May 2020. After the two first opus presented together on one CD in 2016, here comes the third, an album presenting a blend of avant prog, from King Crimson to Univers Zero, with hints of Picchio dal Pozzo.
  • De Santi, Luigi: Dé Jà Vu. (LDS 137). May 2020. Coming from a Genesis tribute band, De Santi is a young composer from Trieste (born in 1985), conceptually close to a Peter Hammill, thanks to a prolific and abundant writing, both from an instrumental point of view and his approach of lyrics. The music relishes the pastoral and romantic kind of art-rock dear to Genesis and the generations of new prog but also the idea of playing short structured tracks.
  • Ellesmere: Wyrd. AMS (AMS317CD). Street date: 04-12-20. Ellesmere, a symphonic-prog music project founded and led by Italian multi-instrumentalist Roberto Vitelli, author of all the music and lyrics, surprisingly comes back just one year after their second album "Ellesmere II / From sea and beyond" with an amazing work in terms of freshness, energy, impact and meticulous attention towards its sound and arrangements. As per tradition, "Wyrd" also involves a series of prog-related prestigious guests: Mattias Olsson (Änglagård, White Willow / drums), Tomas Bodin (The Flower Kings / keyboards), David Cross (King Crimson / violin), John Hackett (flute), David Jackson (Van Der Graaf Generator, Osanna / saxophone), Tony Pagliuca (Le Orme / keyboards), Luciano Regoli (Raccomandata Ricevuta Ritorno / voice), Fabio Liberatori (Loy & Altomare, Lucio Dalla, Ron / keyboards) and Giorgio Pizzala (vocals). Papersleeve CD edition with 24x36cm mini-poster.
  • Patrizio Fariselli / Area Open Project: Area Open Project Live In Japan. 2Cd+Dvd. Sfera Entert (SFE02). Nov. 2020. Patrizio Fariselli returns with a new live line-up of the highest level, with a repertoire of Area classics and new surprises, with the same line-up that accompanied him on May 25th at the Kawasaki City Club, in front of 1300 people. The research spirit of Patrizio Fariselli in Area Open Project is the direct continuation of that of the historical group. He is the only member of Area to have participated in all the band's lineups. The present is composed of Claudia Tellini on vocals, who interprets the songs of Demetrio Stratos in the original key; then a historical and consolidated rhythm section with two of the most respected jazz musicians in Italy, Marco Micheli on bass and Walter Paoli on drums. With Area Open Project, Patrizio Fariselli leads the public on a journey through space and time, between jazz and world sounds reinterpreted with the band's typical experimental style, through fascinating and engaging atmospheres, where exoticism meets the unheard of.
  • Fiaba: Di Gatti di Rane di Folletti e d'altre Storie. Lizard (LIZCD0164). Nov. 2020. 26 years after their debut with the amazing "XII L'Appiccato" and 8 years after their latest album "La Pelle nella Luna" finally arrives a new album by the Syracusan cult band, truly unique for its sound, folk-metal-prog crossroads, that some have tried to define "fairies metal" or "elfic metal" with progressive attitudes. However the Fiaba are not categorized within a genre or a specific definition because the expressive center is in an indefinable elsewhere, another world that feeds the visions of a storyteller jester. We enter here an enchanted world in which each song is a story, or rather a fairy tale whose protagonists are often confused between losers and winners, between loves and disillusions. The extraordinary fable source, the drums and acoustic guitars of Bruno Rubino and the great vocal expressiveness (and theatricality) of Giuseppe Brancato are the unmistakable traits, perfectly supported by Massimo Catena (guitar), Davide Santo (bass), Graziano Manuele (guitar ).
  • Homunculus Res: Andiamo in Giro di Notte e Ci Consumiamo nel Fuoco. AMS314CD. Street date: 24-07-20. After three albums on today's defunct label AltrOck, the band comes with a new opus, whose title is metaphorically pointing at the exacerbation of our modern consumer society. The music is here more essential and direct than before and all the songs contain more or less explicit references to fire, light, heat, electricity, as well as numerous metaphors, subliminal messages, mystical and dark presences, and many other details that make this work layered and complex.
  • Il Bacio della Medusa: AnimAcusticA. AMS (AMS315CD) papersleeve. Street date: 30-10-20. This is the second live album by this progressive rock band from Perugia, this time presenting a new important musical change: moving towards an acoustic offer! "AnimAcusticA" was recorded live on Saturday 19 October 2019 and amazes for its flawless crystal clear sound, so pristine that it can easily be mistaken for a studio album. The quality of the arrangements is also positively surprising; for one evening, they forced the band to transform into an 'all-round' sextet, capable of combining various musical genres with incredible ease, including '70s folk, jazz-rock, classical and symphonic music, songwriting. Concluding the album, the band also offer the unreleased "Testamento di un Poeta" (A Poet's Testament), to enrich the album tracklist. It's a studio recording, a sort of poignant bossa nova in which the 'Poet' sings his farewell to life and to the woman he loves.
  • Indra: Ceneri - Requiem per il Sogno Americano. Self-release (INDRA 001). November 2020. 2nd studio album by the band. It is a provocative concept album and experiment close to World Music, that represents a "requiem" for the American dream and for contemporary society that rewards the mediocre. Odd tempos, chords and notes accentuated with polyrhythmic joints, varied and reinterpreted waltzes, modern jazz sounds but also folk melodies and Balkan sounds shine in the disc thanks to the use of typical Mediterranean instruments alternated with Indian instruments such as sitar and tabla.
  • La Maschera di Cera: S.E.I. AMS (AMS312CD). Street date: 18-09-20. Seven long years after their previous studio album ("Le Porte del Domani", the ideal follow-up to Le Orme's concept album "Felona e Sorona"), Zuffanti & Co. are back with a new album, featuring great guests such as Martin Gryce from Delirium - here playing flute and sax) - and drummer Paolo Tixi (ex-Il Tempio Delle Clessidre). S.E.I., acronym for Separazione / Egolatria / Inganno (Separation / Self-worship / Deception), is made of a 20-minute suite that occupies the first side of the record, followed by two other mini-suites on its second half. The three tracks are very complex music compositions, combining tense and dark moments with atmospheric sections marked by the unmistakable sound of the Mellotron. Jazz and Canterburian influences are also now much more evident. Also available as LP, this is with no doubt a great comeback by one of the key groups in the recent renewed interest for 70's Italian prog!
  • Gianantonio Marchetti: Verso l'Assoluto Nulla. Ma.Ra.Cash Records (MRC089). August 2020. An album with a certain Floydian character, ambient, quiet drumming. The leader operates on various keyboards, backed by the guitars and bass of Luca Giampietri, abounding in nostalgic / pastoral touches.
  • Quel Che Disse Il Tuono: Il Velo dei Riflessi. AMS (AMS311CD / AMSLP151). Available as papersleeve CD or 180gr. black vinyl with gatefold cover. Street date: 21-05-20. Brand new prog-rock group born from the early 2018 split between Francesca Zanetta (guitar, string machines) and Unreal City, after over five years of collaboration and three albums that have left a strong sign in the contemporary Italian progressive rock scene. The strong desire to continue the artistic journey interrupted with Unreal City led shortly thereafter to the encounter, in January 2019, with Roberto "Berna" Bernasconi (bass and lead vocals) and Alessio Del Ben (drums, keyboards, backing vocals). The trio was soon joined by Niccolò Gallani from Cellar Noise (piano, keyboards, flute and choirs) thus completing the line-up. The band's new record also features a very special guest in legendary Alphataurus' Claudio Falcone singer, who took care of choirs and vocal harmonizations as well. From the chemistry among musicians and the innate desire to explore new musical paths comes the group's debut album "Il Velo dei Riflessi" (The Veil of Reflections), a work that perfectly reflects the 'progressive rock tradition' both in its lyrics and music: five long and complex pieces - an average of about ten minutes per song - characterized by a strong keyboard / symphonic component, various mood and rhythm changes, and by long instrumental sections.
  • OAK (Oscillazioni Alchemico Kreative): Giordano Bruno. Aereoastella (ARSIMM/1033). May 2020. This unprecedented post rock opera with prog / folk resonances is now released on CD. Based on the events of the philosopher's life and his magical arts, it is supported by a line up of special guests like David Jackson (VDGG), Richard Sinclair (Caravan, Camel), Sonja Kristina (Curved Air), Jenny Sorrenti and Maartin Allcock (Jethro Tull). The compositional path of Jerry Cutillo conquers an important space in the symphonic prog of the new millennium, bringing progressive rock into new waters, modern musical-theatrical works!
  • OTEME: Un Saluto alle Nuvole. Ma.Ra.Cash Records (MRC084). June 2020. This is the band's 4th release, this time a conceptual project about death, based on a re-worked version of interviews with the personnel of the Hospice of San Cataldo (Lucca) for the short film "Say Hello To The Clouds" (2012). These testimonies became words for pieces in perfect OTEME style, halfway between folk songs and chamber music, avant-rock and contemporary poetry, historical 1900s and psychedelia, "almost-a-radio drama" and musical theatre. The group is made up of 13 musicians who alternate voice, strings, reeds, hammers, electric, wood and metal instruments and more.
  • Prometheo: D'un Fuoco Rapito, D'un Giovane Uomo, D'un Amore Insensate. Self release (CD001P). May 2020. New band from Bari, displaying on this debut album pathos, melodies, symphonicity with clear references to the seventies, combined with a captivating energy and epic with medieval-prog tones. The quintet is formed by Andrea Siano (piano, organ and synth), Andrea Tarquilio (vocals), Alessandro Cellamare, Andrea Maddaloni (bass) and Alessandro Memmi (drums). Here is a work where the preponderant soul prog merges with delicate folk passages in the lineage of Fabrizio De Andrè or Angelo Branduardi.
  • Qirsh: Aspera Tempora - Parte 1. Lizard (LIZCD0162). Nov. 2020. A prog-rock 'concept album' based on the theme of man's fears. The sound combines more classic elements (organ, strings, piano) with vocal effects and rock and electronic elements, in a constantly evolving atmosphere.
  • RaneStrane: The Wall. Ma.Ra.Cash Records (MRC088). 2CD digipak. June 2020. Paying a tribute to Pink Floyd's cult album, this also reveals one of the trademark of the Italian band: a complete synchronization with Alan Parker's film, something they call the Cineconcerto!
  • Rovescio della Medaglia: Contaminazioni 2.0. Jolly Rogers Records (JRR111 LP / JRR112 CD). Street date: 30-11-20. Recorded in 2018 in an old abbey, here's a revisit of the cult album from 1973, including a string quartet and Vittorio De Scalzi (New Trolls) on flute, as special guest!
  • Spirale: S/T. King Universal (NLP112CD). Limited edition of 300 hand-numbered "vinyl replica" copies, in gatefold papersleeve style. Street date: 26-06-20. Spirale were a jazz-rock band, which would be known later as "Folk Magic Band" and quite renown for their participation to international jazz festivals. Their first and only LP with the original bandname could be compared in style to ethno-prog band such as Maad (Italy) or Embryo (Germany). E-piano, bass and drums provide a light, groovy carpet of obstinatos for the lyric excursions of trumpet, saxophone and flute. The mood is breezy and absorbing, the rhythms are often veined of South-American or Indian suggestions
  • Submarine Silence: Did Swans Ever See God?. Ma.Ra.Cash Records (MRC025 LP / MRC090 CD). Street date: 30-11-20. Gatefold digipak. This fourth studio album by Submarine Silence - side project by founding members of Moongarden, Cristiano Roversi, keyboards and David Cremoni, guitars - finds the band again wandering between the typical sounds of a symphonic progressive rock of clear Anglo-Saxon matrix, confirming the predilection for the exploration and reinterpretation of musical scenarios created in the 70's by the great masters dear to all of us (Genesis, Yes , King Crimson, Steve Hackett, Anthony Phillips, Camel), supported by original Mellotron and Hammond sounds. The result is a full, complete, balanced and expertly refined sound thanks also to the clever arrangements penned by Roversi.
  • The Ikan Method: Blue Sun. Ma.Ra.Cash (MRCDS04). May 2020. Debut album by a new prog-band and it is a progressive rock album inspired by the big neo-prog groups of the 80's and 90's (in particular Marillion and IQ). Ten pieces full of melodies, with intertwining of guitars and keyboards supported by a solid rhythmic base, half sung - half instrumental. All the pieces have a melancholy streak, dealing with feelings and life experiences, both internal and social, that photograph a dark period of our society, the current one we are living in a silent dictatorship, more and more alone and distant between us, increasingly submissive, and without the real possibility of changing the rules ... we are under the light of a sad sun ...
  • The Rome Pro(G)Ject: Beaten Paths Different Ways. The 4th chapter of the Rome saga should have been a live album celebrating the 10 years anniversary of the pro(G)ject .... enter Covid! Given the new problematic situation and after some briefing, Vincenzo Ricca decided that something would be released, but in an innovative form! Now comes to birth the 4th opus on November 4th 2020. The new CD will be a mix of 3 brand new tracks, 4 other in new vocal versions, further 5 rearranged and replayed (all coming from the three previous albums) as if the band were performing that during a concert; This 5 tracks selection has been conceived so that every artist who contributed to the three previous albums would be involved in this project too by playing with great care their original parts and adding some new stuff... Finally, the album includes Nick Magnus' track "Proemivm", completely rearranged and replayed by the man himself!
  • Ubi Maior: Bestie, Uomini e Dèi. AMS (AMS313CD). Papersleeve CD with 12-page booklet including original Italian lyrics and their English translation. Street date: 21-05-20. New album of six brand new tracks; in contrast to the previous "Incanti Bio Meccanici", characterized by long and complex suites, its successor reduces the songs length, pushing everything towards a more 'compact' but no less adventurous dimension. "Bestie, Uomini e Dèi" contains and preserves all the main features of the band's style: symphonic and creative keyboards, aggressive and dreamy guitars, tight and hypnotic rhythms, energetic and melodic singing, expressive to such an extent that it becomes almost theatrical in some moments. Rather conceptual, the album is inspired by mysterious people, dark and unfortunate mythological figures, bloodthirsty monsters and beings from another world. The final mix returns a powerful and crystalline sound and denotes both a care for details and an uncommon taste in the arrangements that maintain a perfect balance between the parts from the beginning to the end. Beautiful and sometimes surprising, "Bestie, Uomini e Dèi" will enchant both fans of classic prog-rock and lovers of more modern sounds.
  • Zaal: Homo Habilis. Ten years after his second studio work, Agostino Macor's Zaal project is back, creating an instrumental disc that enriches the "chamber" jazz-rock of the first two works with new - unexpected - World atmospheres alongside electric, ambient, downtempo and acoustic oasis contaminations. A concept album to tell the man / machine relationship, investigate nature as a perfect machine and the humanity of machines by reflecting on the past and future of nature and artificium. Numerous instrumentalists are called for duty to shape a kaleidoscope of different sounds, aimed at underlining the complexity of the machines and "natural mechanics": the sitar of Emanuele Ysmail Miletti, the strings of Sergio Caputo (violin), Paolo Furio Marasso (double bass) and Melissa del Lucchese (cello), the winds of Francesco Mascardi (sax) and Roberto Nappi Calcagno (trumpet), the flute of Andrea Monetti and the percussion of Alessandro Quattrino. The Fender Rhodes, the piano and synthesizers of the leader Agostino Macor - also organ and mandolin - and the precious hosts of Edmondo Romano (woodwinds and winds), Mau di Tollo and Federico Branca (drums) weave the plots of the songs. Recorded live during long group sessions, the record photographs a bizarre laboratory where rock, jazz, world, prog, chamber, ambient, acoustic, electric and electronic instruments can coexist in a melting pot without time or space.

  • IT'S A BIG ... BIG ... WORLD!


    PROG IN THE UNITED KINGDOM!


  • Tim Bowness: Late Night Laments. InsideOut Music (0IO02072). 2CD limited digipak edition. Street date: 28-08-20. This special edition includes 5 additional studio tracks (making CD 2), which he thought didn't fit the conceptual side of his music. This is his 6th solo album, mixed by long-time partner in crime Steven Wilson.
  • Steve Hackett: Selling England By The Pound & Spectral Mornings: Live At Hammersmith. InsideOut Music. Street date: 25-09-20. The London performance was captured during the former Genesis guitarist's 2019 tour, where he was joined onstage by his touring band: vocalist Nad Sylvan, keyboardist Roger King, bassist Jonas Reingold, drummer Craig Blundell and Rob Townsend on saxophone and flute. The lineup was bolstered by special guests John Hackett and Amanda Lehmann. Several packages will be released: 2CD/DVD, 2CD/Blu-ray and on a limited edition, a 4LP/2CD box set and 2CD/DVD/Blu-ray with art book.

Here is the new studio album by the guitarist and singer, 10 songs recorded with his bandmates in King Crimson (Robert Fripp, Gavin Harrison, Tony Levin and Mel Collins). Sensible and nostalgic melodies dealing with various personal or societal themes, symphonic and cinematic colours, the album also features participation by Simple Minds Bassist John Giblin, Mark King from Level 42 and Van Der Graaf Generator's mastermind and singer Peter Hammill, who contributed to the writing of one song. Available in various packages: Limited CD/DVD digipak with 5.1 Mix & Music videos, gatefold black vinyl LP + CD and a 100 copies limited edition on yellow vinyl + CD!
  • King Crimson: Complete 1969 Recordings. Panegyric (KCCBX9111). Street date: 23-10-20. Inflation, inflation! If the first 6CD boxset focusing on Crimson's first album was a true, exciting surprise, the announcement of another 20CD/4Blu-Ray/1DVD/1DVD-A box covering about the same period seems to only testimony of the never ending and always increasing narcissic habit of the band's egocentric head founder! It is amusing to remember all past prints of Fripp about the corrupt music industry (and yes, he's right!) on nearly each upcoming release, and at the same time witness this insane support of a consumer's society at its worst! (and no, he's wrong here, caught in his own contradictions!)
    "the box also includes the original In The Court studio album" ---> this was already done in the first boxset!
    "every alternate take known to exist, every mix known to exist" ---> same remark + how many do you really need? Do you also want the spoiled tapes with spaghetti sauce on it?
    "all live recordings from this incarnation of the band known to exist" ---> covered in the Club Series!
    "and a selection of pre-King Crimson 1968 recordings from Giles, Giles & Fripp." (sigh!) .... buy instead the two more complete existing releases: click me!! All this boxset is about rehash or at best a new chance for all the hibernating collectors (does this exist?)who'd unfortunately were too lazy or sleeping too hard in order to get the first box in time!
  • King Crimson: Elements Tour Box 2020. Panegyric (KCTB20). Street date: 04-09-20. Seventh release in the Tour Box series, this one has been adffected by the corona situation, as it was originally prepared for now postponed concert venue sales on King Crimson's USA 2020 tour! Instead, it offers live selections spanning from 1973 to 2019 and a huge majority is made of tracks previously unreleased on CD!
  • Pink Floyd: Broadcast >From Rome, Italy May 6th, 1968. Deep Sleep (DSLEE001). Street date: 28-08-20. Live broadcast from the First International European Pop Festival, at the Piper Club, Rome, Italy, May 6th, 1968.
  • Kavus Torabi: Hip to the Jag. Street date: 22-05-20. The Knifeworld frontman wrote, played and recorded the album and was responsible for the artwork too. Kavus Torabi's songs dwell on mortality, love and loss. He uses troubling themes as a way of establishing a context for transcendent bliss. This debut solo album is a blissfully skewed swan dive into the swirling cosmic kaleidoscope of the poet's soul. From spectral, intricate and fragile compositions to psychedelic, joyous and open drone-scapes, it is brave, beautiful and beguiling throughout. Hip To The Jag will be available on 180g vinyl LP, 6 panel digifile CD and download.
  • Rick Wakeman: Red Planet. Madfish Music. Street date: 28-08-20. Available in many formats, this album features 8 newly pieces, especially composed for this project, and harks back to Wakeman's critically acclaimed debut album "The Six Wives of Henry VIII" where there were 6 heavy keyboard pieces based around a central subject matter. It is a serious return to "Wakeman Prog"...

A CD Deluxe edition also adds a DVD, including a high res version of the album plus expanded versions of footage.

  • Mark Wingfield / Jane Chapman / Adriano Adewale: Zoji. Moonjune Records (MJR110). January 2021. This unconventional album unites English musicians Mark Wingfield (guitar, soundscapes) and Jane Chapman (harpsichord) with Brazilian percussionist and vocalist Adriano Adewale. Rather open and in constant morphing, the musical ideas shape, question and bounce, confront each other and reveal the deep interplay and attention between the musicians, necessary to the success of the final entity. Creative soundscapes from Wingfield's atmospheric guitars meet the multiple and apparently infinite ways of playing the harpsichord, coloured and embellished by the percussive use of the voice or real ethnic instruments. You have here the key to parallel sonic universes and interastral harmonic moves, all connected inside or outside each other!

  • Huntsville: Bow Shoulder. Hubro Music (HUBROCD2620). Street date: 02-10-20. This new album is fully improvised, recorded at The Loft, Chicago, USA. It is the fruitful collaboration of Huntsville three members (Ivar Grydeland: all guitars, banjo, pedal steel, electronic and tabla machine, percussionist Ingar Zach and on electric bass Tonny Kluften) with great guest artists: Nels Cline (electric guitar), Glenn Kotche (percussion), Darin Gray (contrabass) and Yuka Honda (keyboards).

  • Khadavra: Hypnagogia. Black Widow Records (BWRCD233-2). Street date: 26-06-20. New band hailing from Sweden. It clearly has its roots in the classic times of prog, including the epic track at the end, almost 28 minutes of pure bliss. The choice of instruments is rich, including percussion, marimba, French horn, church organ, didgeridoo, sitar, alongside more traditional ones like bass, guitar, keyboards and three player with vocal duties. Would probably attract a broad fans scope, from Black Sabbath to Motorpsycho, or Gentle Giant to Anekdoten!
  • Hedvig Mollestad: Ekhidna. Rune Grammofon (RCD2215). Street date: 12-06-20. In May 2018 Hedvig received an invitation from Vossajazz - the much loved annual festival established in 1973 - to write the commission work for 2019. This came at the right time, she had been thinking about writing for a bigger group than the trio, and this would be a good opportunity. To make it suitable for album release the full festival version was edited, sharpened and recorded from scratch in Amper Tone studio in Oslo. In addition to Hedvig on guitar, the line-up includes powerhouse drummer Torstein Lofthus (Elephant9) and percussionist Ole Mofjell, the youngest member, but with solid experience from the European improvisation scene. Keyboard duties are handled by Marte Eberson (daughter of iconic guitarist Jon Eberson) and Erlend Slettevoll (The Core and supergroup Grand General. On trumpet we'll find Susana Santos Silva, whom Hedvig first met in Mats Gustafsson´s NU-ensemble. Ekhidna is a figure from Greek mythology; half woman, half snake. Hevig is keen to stress that it´s not a concept album as such, but loosely tied to themes of human struggle and being a mother in times when our increasing inability to live in harmony with nature paints a bleak picture.
  • Motorpsycho: The All Is One. Rune Grammofon (MPCD104). Release date: 28-08-20. The new album will be released on two 180 gram double vinyl editions (black or clear) and a 2CD edition.

The album features music from two sessions that took place in 2019, the first at Black Box Studio in France, with Reine Fiske (Dungen), and the second at Ocean Sound Studio in Norway with Lars Horntveth (Jaga Jazzist) and Ola Kvernberg (Steamdome). This last session gave birth to a 42 minute, 5 part piece of epic proportions, inspired by paintings, alchemy and the tarot. There is also a selection of shorter songs, loosely clocking in between 3 and 10 minutes.
  • The Samurai Of Prog:?Beyond The Wardrobe. Seacrest Oy (SCR 1029). 2020. Here is a special release with all new material, in a 6-panel tri-fold digisleeve limited edition, including a cardboard innersleeve and a 20-page booklet.

The legendary experimental pop outfit returns with a brand-new record written, conceived and produced over the last couple of years by Marc Hollander (founder of Aksak Maboul and of the Crammed label) and Véronique Vincent (former singer with The Honeymoon Killers). The two protagonists recorded most of the album in their own studio, with contributions by the young members of Aksak Maboul's current live line-up: Faustine Hollander (bass, vocals, co-production), guitarist Lucien Fraipont and drummer Erik Heestermans. Also featured are performances by several friends and guests, including revered improvisor Fred Frith, Tuxedomoon's Steven Brown, ex-Univers Zero member Michel Berckmans and more. Seamlessly weaving electronic and acoustic instrumentation, improvisation and programming, songs, beats, found objects and sound collages, the album works as a labyrinth full of secret passages and interconnections.

  • Beat Love Oracle Vs Hardscore: Don't Count On Us. áMARXE (0121). Street date: 05-03-21. This compilation album is also an hybrid child.

Concluding is "13 Seconds Mouser", a new version of a track originally released on Hardscore's final album?"Monkey Trial"?in 2004.
  • Orgöne: Mos/Fet. Heavy Psych Sounds (HPS132). Street date: 29-05-20. Mos/Fet is the first studio album by the french band Orgöne. Fully self-produced, this first opus reveals a SF mythology mixing 70s pop culture, ancient Egypt, pan-Africanism, spatial and paranormal exploration against the backdrop of Cold War and USSR. Sometimes immersed in the thickness of a burning and hostile desert, sometimes in the depths of space, floating in weightlessness or crossing the Milky Way faster than light, atmospheres succeed one after another and tell you incredible, uchronial, dystopian, exhilarating and bewitching stories.
  • Markus Reuter Oculus: Nothing Is Sacred. Moonjune Records. street date: 06-08-20. Recorded at the now famous La Casa Murada, Spain, on May 15th, 2019, this project by one of the 21st century's most joyously unconventional, innovative musician and composer, Markus Reuter, gave birth to an album which hails as one of the most brilliant, spellbinding and 'immediately essential' ensemble works in decades. Joined by a stellar cast, featuring legendary King Crimson alumnus, violinist/keyboardist David Cross, the extraordinary veteran timekeeper Asaf Sirkis, fretless bass virtuoso (and renowned producer) Fabio Trentini, Markus employs a more premeditated, disciplined, yet radically divergent approach to group performance on this monumental session, with contributions from fellow guitar pioneer Mark Wingfield and the iconic West Coast USA ambient pioneer, keyboardist Robert Rich.

    ZEUHL NEWS ... ZEUHL NEWS ...ZEUHL NEWS ...ZEUHL NEWS ... ZEUHL NEWS ...

  • Scherzoo: 5. Lizard (LIZCD0163). October 2020. 05 is both a fresh new start for Scherzoo and a natural evolution of the keyboards driven formula introduced in its last album. Mostly recorded in a live setting, this is the sound of a band brimming with confidence, benefiting from the stability of its line-up and strengthened by four years of playing together. Signing with Lizard Records marks a important new step for the french quartet, a perfect fit since the open mindedness of the Italian label joins perfectly the band's desire to broaden its musical horizons. Fender Rhodes and organ are still the main focus, but the addition of Mellotrons, synthesisers, Clavinet or acoustic piano results in the sonically most refined and diverse Scherzoo album to date, which will strongly appeal to all lovers of vintage keyboards. 05 brings also another voice (sort of speak for an all instrumental music!) with leader François Thollot sharing for the first time the compositional duties with keyboardist Grégoire Plancher, who contributes with two original tunes. Blending effortlessly Avant-prog, Canterbury flavoured sound or Classic Prog, and reaching its climax with the epic 14 minutes of «Tsunami», the eight tracks explore both darkness and light, taking the listener through a musical trip full of twist and turns and memorable melodic ideas

    JAZZ ....JAZZ ....JAZZ ....JAZZ ....JAZZ ....JAZZ ....JAZZ ....JAZZ ....JAZZ .... JAZZ ....


  • Andrea Grossi Blend Orchestra: Four Winds. We Insist! (WEIN9). Street date:25-09-20. The keystones of this work, crafted between November 2015 and June 2017), are the pieces that bear the names of the four ancient Greek winds: Borea (North), Noto (South), Euro (East), Zephiro (West). This imagery can't obviously ignore the perspective of the "migrating wind" as an entity in movement, that blends and transforms itself, renovating traditions, identities and cultures, overcoming walls and barriers of all kinds. This music is meant to be an hymn: an eulogy to the differences that nourish and enrich our world. At the same time, with its harshness, it aims to stimulate a reflection about the terrible fate accompanying those who are forced to give up their lives in favor of a greater hope; an aspiration that, very often, remains unfulfilled.
  • Baldych/Courtois/Telderman: Clouds. ACT (ACT99182). Street date: 25-09-20. The three cultures and traditions - Poland, France and The Netherlands - represented by the musicians, were confronted live for the first time at the Dutch festival "Sounds of Europe Festival" in 2018. The seeds were sowed, giving growth to a fruitful collaboration where Baldych's violin & renaissance violin and Courtois' challenging cello playing face and converse with the "other" strings, those of Rogier Telderman's piano.
  • Alain Bellaïche: Sea Fluorescent. Le SouffleContinu (fflCD063). Street date: 09-10-20. First ever reissue of highly sought after french jazz funk fusion nugget from Alain Bellaïche, featuring Jerry Goodman of Mahavishnu Orchestra's fame, John Hicks (Strata-East) & Fabiano (Fabiano Orchestra).

  • Ran Blake & Andrew Rathbun:Northern Noir. SteepleChase (SCCD 31899). June 2020. The idea of this album was conceived eight years ago and came into fruition here presenting 18 gems created by the pianist - one of the most striking, inventive modern players of his generation, with his unorthodox sounding musical style stemning from the special genre of 60's movies known as "Film Noir" - and the young Canadian saxophonist/composer Andrew Rathbun, who was tutored and nurtured by Blake, his teacher at the prestigious New England Conservatory of Boston. Recorded in August 2018.
  • Federico Bonifazi: Last Minute. SteepleChase (SCCD 33141). Street date: 15-11-20.

Here with established musicians Furio Di Castri on bass and Roberto Batto on drums. Recorded in July 2019.
  • Breadcrumb Trio: S/T. Slam Productions (SLAMCD599). Street date: 31-07-20. Improvisational - experimental music group with two guitarits, here releasing its first self-titled album. Its particular combination of electric guitar with contrabass gives birth to compositions encompassing a wide range of sonic manipulations. The instruments escape their traditional ways and produce uncanny and original sounds. The three musicians get together on the basis of musical "dialogue", aiming to explore new musical dynamics. The members of the Bread Crumb Trio are active in the improvisational and new music scenes of Athens and Berlin, each one stemming from different backgrounds (classical, jazz, rock, punk). The album is an example of the up-and-coming scene that welcomes more and more musicians, creating performances for an audience that seeks out unique sounds and new sonic experiences. Its aim is the immediacy between the audience and the performers, giving the former the right to think freely, criticize, demand, without any pre-imposed rules pertaining to "idiom" or "tradition".
  • Brochard & Favriou: Derviche. Ayler Records (aylCD-165). Street date: 26-08-20. Digifile. Eric Brochard on piccolo bass and voice + Fabrice Favriou on drums.

Cuber and Smulyan, two of the leading exponents of this weighty member of the saxophone family meet here for the first time, showcasing their combined feat of baritone sax playing in modern jazz. Ronnie Cuber (b. 1941) has for more than the past half century been one of the most important soloists of this instrument. Gary Smulyan (b. 1956), the multiple award-winner of numerous jazz polls as the baritone saxophonist of the year has been particularly acclaimed for his witty contrafact compositions and performances. Recorded in April 2019 with Gary Versace on piano, Jay Anderson on bass, and Jason Tiemann on drums.

Danish guitarist/composer/band leader Pierre Dørge and his 12-piece New Jungle Orchestra celebrate their 40th anniversary this year.

Recorded live on November 22, 23 & 24, 2019, the album features as special guest American tenor saxophonist Stephen Riley, who has been a NJO's frequent guest on stage.
  • Elephant9: Arrival Of The New Elders. Rune Grammofon (RCD2218). Street date: 19-02-21. New album by the Norwegian supergroup, this time offering shorter compositions in a more structured and reflective context.
  • Espen Eriksen Trio: End Of Summer. Rune Grammofon (RCD2216). Street date: 25-09-20. Recorded in April 2020 at the highest peak of the pandemic, the album benefits of an extra level of intensity, due to the fact of being able to be together and record in a time where concerts mass cancellation was the rule!
  • Falb / Holub / Satzinger Trio: A Room For You. Slam Productions (SLAMCD2112). Street date: 31-07-20. The recording process saw all 3 members (sax, bass & drums) bring some concepts for the improvisations as well as Holub bringing a few tunes. The essence of the recording is about 3 musicians who are working to form a group language through their various individualistic approaches. The CD moves between sparse soundscapes ,hectic free jazz, and beautiful melodic moments, sometimes all within the same track. With this first album, a new trio is born which will continue to explore the boundaries of where improvised music can take us.
  • Fire!: Defeat. Rune Grammofon (RCD2217). Steet date: 19-02-21. 7th release by the trio, this time again with guests: Goran Kajfes and Mats Äleklint. The flute gets a prominent role in the sound field and if the expression seems slightly more reserved than earlier, the characteristic bass figures and hypnotic atmospheres are still there!
  • Freetime: Lamps, Clocks and Towers. Slam Productions (SLAMCD 334). October 2020. Evolved from the original Freetime Quartet, the present version comprises musicians from Bosnia, Slovakia, Wales and England which came into being at the Free Jazz Festival in Prague in 2013, performing to a full house. Since then they have performed many concerts and tours in the Czech Republic in very different venues and festivals. They continue to evolve through improvisations that embrace and explore elements of Folk, Rock, Jazz and contemporary music with their own identity and energy. This album introduces the new group recorded live at the legendary Absintový Klub in Ostrava, offering a fine example of Freetime's creativity. With George Haslam on Tarogato, Aida Mujacic (piano and voice), Jozef Láska (contrabass and bass guitar), Steve Hubback (percussion)
  • Bill Frisell Trio: Valentine. Blue Note (00602508992094). Street date: 14-08-20.

  • Tim Garland: Refocus. Edition Records (EDN1159). Street date: 18-09-20. LP edition (the first 100 will be signed & numbered) or CD + download version (WAV & MP3). With the help of Asaf Sirkis (Drums, Crotales), Yuri Goloubev (Double Bass) and a chamber orchestra, pianist Tim Garland revisits here Stan Getz's iconic album "Focus" from 1961. Using Getz's improvised lines as a jumping-off point, Garland captures the spirit of both the record and the era and brings them gloriously back into focus almost 60 years on.
  • Terje Gewelt: House On A Hill. Resonant Music (RM282). Street date: 13-11-20. This is the 12th album released by the established bass player and composer, featuring the same line up as on his much acclaimed 2017 album "Wow and Flutter": Bjørn Klakegg on guitar, Erlend Slettevoll on piano and keyboards, Terje Evensen on drums and elektronics. An album of maturity, marked by a recent touring activity in Brazil as well as the deep prints of our uncertain pandemic time! Questionings, emotive reactions, deep musical thoughts about our future, have been encapsulated by the much respected sound engineer Tor Magne Hallibakken for what may become Gewelt's best production.
  • Dennis González Ataraxia Trio+2: Nights Enter. Ayler Records (aylCD-171). Street date: 20-03-21. Besides the leader on treated C trumpet, percussion and conch shell, the trio consists of Drew Phelps on electric & acoustic bass and Jagath Lakpriya on tablas & djembe. The +2 are Derek Rogers (Moog synth) and Jess Garland (harp). Extract from the liner notes: "The confluence of organic and electronic elements is seamless, and the swirling blend of textures has a dreamlike quality. Derek Rogers? shimmering electronic beds contrast with the earthiness of Jagath Lakpriya?s percussion and the muscularity of Drew Phelps' deep song. Jess Garland?s harp adds dazzling points of light, and Dennis proves himself once again to be a master of melody - a trait he shares with the greatest jazz musicians."
  • Dennis González's Yells At Eels + Pinkish Black: Vanishing Light in the Tunnel of Dreams. Ayler Records (aylCD-163). Twofold digisleeve CD. May 2020. Recorded in 2018, this album concretizes the meeting between two long running musical projects that finally came together after many years of discussing it in passing. On one side, the Gonzalez family unit and their abrasive take on modern Latin-tinged jazz, on the other the experimental rock duo of Daron Beck (keyboards & synths) and Jon Teague (drums & synths). Serious health issues during the process added some more tension and a bludgeoning despair to make this piece of music a meditation amongst brothers, a soundtrack of nightmares, of beauty and perseverance.
  • Frode Gjerstad Trio: Forgotten City. PNL Records (PNL050). Street date: 12-06-20. In fact not really a trio but rather a quartet, as alongside the well oiled duo of Gjerstad and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love, we find an interactive post for the bass chair, made of two musicians having decided to play together as one instrument and also having both - but individually - a past experience with the trio: Øyvind Storesund and Jon Rune Strøm. This is easy for them to change roles whenever they want; if one takes charge of the bass function, the other is freed and can play free-form. This fexibility also brings new challenges to both drummer and reedman!
  • Gratkowski / Kaufmann / De Joode / Buck: Flatbosc & Cautery. NoBusiness Records NBCD 133. Nov. 2020. Frank Gratkowski: alto saxophone, clarinets, flutes / Achim Kaufmann: piano / Wilbert de Joode: bass / Tony Buck: drums, percussion. Recorded live at Loft Köln on May 25th 2018.
  • Cecilie Grundt: Order & Chaos. AMP Music & Records (AT065). Street date: 31-07-20. This 2nd album by the Norwegian saxophonist is an ode to the classic jazz quartet and the golden age of the 50's and 60's, with references to icons such as Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter or Joe Henderson from the Blue Note period. It has been worked out on a period of 10 years, slowly matured, with melody getting a key role!
  • Bill Hartman Sextet: What's Up. SteepleChase Records (SCS 1254). Street date: 05-01-21. This New York session from the summer of 1989 became Hardman's last recording. Bill Hardman was one of the leading trumpeters in the hard bop era of the 50's, having been a long-time front-line in Blakey's Jazz Messengers, but also played with Horace Silver and Charles Mingus among others. This session reunited him with saxophonist Junior Cook and also adds the presence of a third blower, trombonist Robin Eubanks.
  • Gavin Harrison / Antoine Fafard: Chemical Reactions. Harmonic Heresy (HH20201). Digipak. Street date: 11-12-20. Chemical Reactions is a joint album project presented by Gavin Harrison and Antoine Fafard. The original music on this album features a hybrid between the progressive-fusion approach and the world of chamber and orchestral music. Fafard's compositions highlight Harrison's innovative drumming through this intense and unique journey of epic proportions. About half of the album consists of tracks where drums and electric bass interact with a string quartet, while Harrison provides occasional marimba parts to the music. One track - Singular Quartz - showcases a different orchestration where drums and bass play alongside violin, cello, marimba and vibraphone. On this track, Jerry Goodman who has been a frequent collaborator on Fafard's music, performs the acoustic and electric violin parts. The album concludes with "Holding Back the Clock" and the title track - Chemical Reactions - two pieces where Harrison and Fafard perform with the Janacek Philharmonic Orchestra, recorded in March 2016 and conducted by Anthony Armore. The new album offers a true fusion of musical styles and tones. It was created to expand artistic possibilities and open up new horizons.
  • Haslam / Madeira / Rua / Castello Lopes: Ajuda. Slam Productions (SLAMCD5100). Street date: 31-07-20. Initiated by saxophonist George Haslam, here featured on taragot, this recording is the result of a very informal 'studio' recording and the gathering of former acquaintances, some old, other newer or even first time. This quietly led to the birth aof a hitherto rather unknown quartet, creating their own identity through music by listening, responding and finding pleasure in the experience.
  • Haslam / Pastor / Faix / Láska / Sikl: Loveland. Slam Productions (SLAMCD335). March 2021. Recorded live in 2010 in a small cellar club in Vinohrady, Czech Republic, this album finally comes to daylight some ten years after, featuring George Haslam on baritone saxand taragot and Italian violinist Stefano Pastor, together with Czech musicians: Jozef Láska on acoustic & electric bass had already worked with Haslam in a group called The FreeTime Quartet, while Jan Faix (synthesizer & melodica) and drummer Jan?Sikl are the mewcomers here!
  • Sylvaine Hélary: Glowing Life. Ayler Records (aylCD-164). Street date: 02-10-20. Sylvaine Hélary's new quartet explores a more electric branch of her work as a composer, creating here heady melodies, romantic sizzles, amplified rhythmic hordes and waves of misty ritornelles. The legacy of ancient legends (Henry Cow, Robert Wyatt, Arto Lindsay, Stereolab) rubs shoulders with the emergence of a world of astonishing dimensions, where the outlines of a singular soundscape are drawn, reflecting various and complementary expressions of the four musical personalities involved who express themselves with joyful freedom. Acting as a bridge between the very English "Canterbury" scene, contemporary jazz and experimental pop, this group produces the sound of a life in scintillating and phosphorescent colors, a refreshing and bewitching "Glowing Life" promising bright futures. Sylvaine's partners in crime are Antonin Rayon (Hammond B3 organ, Moog synth, piano, clavinet), Benjamin Glibert (electric guitar and electric bass) and Christophe Lavergne on drums.
  • Bendik Hofseth: Trunks. C+C Records (CCD068). Street date: 31-07-20. First of a 4 parts project planned for 2020, Trunks is an instrumental jazz album featuring Eivind Aarset on guitar, Mats Eilertsen on bass, Helge Iberg on piano, Per Oddvar Johansen on drums and - cherry on the cake - Mike Mainieri on vibraphone. Seven compositions especially written for the band members and near friends make this album a very heartfelt one.
  • Kirsti Huke: Weaving. Jazzland Recordings (3779268). Street date: 22-05-20. A conceptual album by the singer (also playing omnichord and harmonium), dealing with themes such as loneliness, brotherhood and friendship, climatic changes. The line up is rather unusual, with two drummers / percussionists (and drum macines too!) and Gunnar Halle on trumpet, synth and vocals.
  • I.P.A.: Bashing Mushrooms. Cuneiform Records (RUNE472). Featuring Oslo-based Atle Nymo on tenor saxophone and bass clarinet, Norwegian-born, Austin, Texas-based bassist Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, Trondheim drummer Håkon Mjåset Johansen, Stockholm's Magnus Broo on trumpet and Mattias Ståhl on vibraphone, I.P.A. is strongly influenced by the seminal 60's work of Don Cherry and Ornette Coleman. Harmonically unfettered, rhythmically unpredictable, and melodically unvarnished, the quintet thrives on live-wire interaction, with rapidly intersecting lines that swoop and collide, disentangle and divide. A sumptuous aural feast marked by extended, circuitous melodies and spacious, finely etched textures, this album is the group's fifth album and their second on Cuneiform.
  • Keith Jarrett: Budapest Concert. ECM (ECM 2700-1). Nov. 2020. The second complete show to be issued from Keith Jarrett's 2016 European tour - following on from the widely-acclaimed concert released as Munich 2016 - this double album documents the pianist's solo performance at the Béla Bartók National Concert Hall in Budapest. Jarrett, whose family roots reach back to Hungary, viewed the Budapest concert as akin to a homecoming, and the context inspired much creative improvisation. Where Jarrett's early solo concerts shaped a large arc of music over the course of an evening, the later concerts have generated suite-like structures, comprised of independent movements, each of them a marvel of spontaneous resourcefulness. Creative energy is applied also to familiar songs given as encores, "It's A Lonesome Old Town" and "Answer Me", transformed in the Budapest concert.
  • Kaze & Ikue Mori: Sand Storm. Circum-Libra 205. Kaze - the cooperative quartet featuring Japanese composer-pianist Satoko Fujii, husband and trumpeter Natsuki Tamura along with French trumpeter Christian Pruvost and drummer Peter Orins - welcomes here pioneering laptop player Ikue Mori as a special guest. It's no easy task for a band that's been together for 10 years to add a player without upsetting a well-developed group balance, but the merger proves to be a natural one. Sand Storm's vibrant collective improvisations and brilliant soloing make this a highpoint in the life of the band.

Though our digital connection can provide needed communication throughout the world, its rush to commercialism through mining customer's spending habits, and allowing manipulation of our daily life through addicting platforms, has corrupted its intent to improve our lives, and equalize our world's inequities. Daily we look down at our digital devices, while ignoring the simple beauty of the "natural" world around us!

Moderated by the musicologist (and founding member of the band Stormy Six) Franco Fabbri, and transcribed and notated in its entirety in the forty pages booklet (in English/Italian) by the jazz critic and historian Francesco Martinelli, Taylor opened the meeting by reading a complex statement of his on the definition of music, inclusive of an explanatory glossary at the end. What came after was no less bewildering, with Taylor using the moderator's questions as a springboard for an explosive tour de force of quotes and references.

Based upon his versatile personality, Paul Van Gysegem has found a way to interweave jazz music with his work as a painter / sculptor. The formal language he uses is close to the spirit and structure - the way of thinking - of the music he plays. In improvised music he finds it important to discover a relation in attitude amongst those who come together to make music, here: Cel Overberghe (tenor & soprano saxophone), Patrick De Groote (trumpet & flügelhorn), Erik Vermeulen (piano), Paul Van Gysegem (double bass) and Marek Patrman (percussion).
  • Ben Wendel: High Heart. Edition Records (EDN1162).

The ensemble is mostly percussive (2 vibraphonists, glockenspiel, several shakers, drums) but also includes electric bass and guitar, synthesizer, bass clarinet. The CD is based on the World-premiere performance on May 23rd, 2017 at Alte Feuerwache, Mannheim, Germany.

Ten years after their first collaboration ("Into", Silentes, 2009) KK Null - Japanese composer, guitarist, singer, mastermind of Zeni Geva - and Deison are back together with "Yugen", a new work exploring darkness and controlled chaos through deep and dense sounds.

The project came to life, collecting a series of tracks that travel through electronic and ambient music in a dark sound world... At times almost danceable, absorbing the influences of the beloved synths of the 80's, reinterpreting in their own peculiar way the moods accumulated over time.

  • Spheric: Music For Laboratories. ST.AN.DA. (ST.AN.DA. 1914). Street date: 02-09-20. This is a project by Orlando Lostumbo - a Roman double bass player and composer - who, for this work, has chosen the moniker of Spheric. For the realization of "Music For Laboratories", the artist has been inspired by his working environment, a research institute - the Istituto Superiore di Sanitá - where, for over thirty years, he has been working as an employee at the internal library, one of the most important in the biomedical field in Italy. In this work - close in nature to Brian Eno's "Music for Environments" - Lostumbo uses electronic sounds, piano and - in some tracks - the double bass, deconstructing, superimposing and displacing the electronic and acoustic sounds, creating effects that lead to continuous processes of sound transformation within a 'circular' and 'mantric' music.
  • trajedesaliva: Ultratumba. áMARXE (0221). Street date: 08-02-21. The Galician duo of Mon Ninguén (music, instruments) and Una Vena (words, voice and visual concept) are back with an album full of passion, anguish, bitterness and sadness.

  • BRAZILIAN MUSIC



  • Morild: Brazilian Soundscapes. Gvito Records (GVR005CD). Street date: 13-11-20. Unusual on several aspects, this release is first of all a Brazilian jazz take by a Norwegian duo: guitarist Marius Gundersen and trombone player Dag Einar Eilertsen. Reinforced here with bass and percussion, they follow their critics acclaimed debut album «Nordic Landscapes» from 2018 with a new one, delving into compositions by among other Egberto Gismonti, Jobim or Caymmi. As on their first album , the second surprise comes from the sonic coupling of classical guitar to alt trombone but they already have received a lot of praise for precisely making this alliance sound brilliantly!

  • Harpreet Bansal Band: Movements. Jazzland Recordings (3779306). Though based in Norway, Harpreet Bansal has earned an international recognition for her interpretation of Indian ragas but with this band, she has called for duty her absolute favourite players, a colourful and dynamic mix of various and strong personalities that add a new dimension to ragas, with elements of jazz, impro and Persian music. With Javid Afsari-Rad on santur, Adrian Fiskum Myhr on double bass, Andreas Bratlie on tablas, Vojtech Prochazka on harmonium and the sinuous ecstatic violin of the leader, the music clearly moves in different ways, from meditative to playful, from Norway to India via Persia, from the organised to the improvised .... movements, as implied by the title!
  • Sharqant: S/T. Jazzland Recordings (3779231). Street date: 05-06-20. New band and album, the result of two days of studio work. Guitar, oud, bass, drums and percussion + vocals for a musical journey to Middle East!

For a story between thriller and mystery, Ennio Morricone has composed a soundtrack based on two recurring tonal themes, a pop ballad for choir and orchestra and a requiem that alternate with hallucinatory atmospheres between the experimental and psychedelic. Remastered from the original stereo masters, this CD comes with a 12 page booklet.
  • Riz Ortolani: La Ragazza Di Trieste. Beat (CDCR145). Street date: 11-12-20. Reissue of a drama film directed in 1982 by Pasquale Festa Campanile, originally released as 33 rpm (New Polaris - POL / BP 733), printed in Italy and reissued in Switzerland by Milan (A CH 002). Unfortunately, the album master was lost, but it was possible to reassemble it using the first generation stereo masters of the original session. Apart from some tracks that were identical to those from the session, it was also necessary to edit most of the pieces that Mr. Ortolani had assembled by editing small takes together. Ultimately, the ten tracks from the vinyl (duration about 30:28) were rescued in excellent stereo sound, and in the session masters, twelve unreleased tracks we discovered, bringing the CD to a total duration of 51:50. This soundtrack once again highlights the whole romantic side of Riz Ortolani, certainly one of the greatest melodists in the world. Comes with a 12 page booklet

    3 Hür-El: Hür-El Arsivi. Guerssen (GUESS056). July 09. 2nd album that came out in 1976, still on the Diskötur label.

Comes with an insert, with liner notes and photos.
    3 Hür-El: S/T. Guerssen (GUESS057). July 09. One of the very few, if not the only one, Turkish groups not doing any covers but only self-penned compositions, here in their debut album from 1972. A brilliant set of Turkish ethno-influenced folk-rock tracks with a psychedelic feel, some great electric guitar and fantastic Eastern percussion. A very rare album now available again, with mastertape sound, insert, liner notes and photos.
    A Piedi Nudi: Creazione (95). Mellow Records. Sent in May 08: last copies of this LP + EP by an Italian prog metal band which many have compared to Deus Ex Machina because of the numerous stop-and-go sections, the constant theme changes and the musical complexity.

    Abdul-Malik, Ahmed : Jazz Sahara. So Far Out (OUT5002LP) 180 Gr. vinyl. Feb. 2013. Decades before the advent of 'World Music', bassist-composer Ahmed Abdul-Malik introduced Arabic music into jazz, creating a distinct, unique sound that was far beyond its time. He was also the first to use the oud, a pear-shaped, traditional Middle Eastern stringed instrument similar to a lute, as a jazz instrument. Recorded in 1958, with tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin (his bandmate in the Monk quartet), and originally out on the Riverside label, Abdul-Malik's debut solo album Jazz Sahara was a burning fusion of Middle East and West. €16
    Abdul-Malik, Ahmed : Spellbound. Klimt (MJJ388). Street date: 28-11-16. A mindblowing mix of jazz and Middle Eastern influences and a rare 60's treasure from Thelonious Monk's former bassist! Ahmed Abdul-Malik blends together percussion, bass, and oud with some soulful solo work from Seldon Powell on tenor and flute, and Ray Nance on cornet, stretching out over long tracks with an exotic vibe.
    Abdul-Malik, Ahmed : The Eastern Moods Of Ahmed Abdul-Malik. Doxy ACV (ACV2084). Street date: 19-01-17. The group on the set is a trio - Ahmed on bass and oud, Bilal Abdurrahman on alto, Korean reed flute and percussion, William Henry Allen on bass and percussion. With that kind of lineup, you can imagine the feel - lots of spare rhythms, with snaking reed work over the top, done in a very evocative way - and although there's less jazz than usual, the alto sax solos still give the record enough of a jazz component to set it apart from straight world music. Numbered limited edition of 500 copies.

BWR088LP / BWR088CD. 4th album by Tony D'Urso, this album is the soundtrack of the italian horror movie "I am a Vampire" in the usual Dark Prog style but also exploring a more psychedelic touches with the addition of great cover versions of Never Let go (Camel), Lady in Black (Uriah Heep) and Mary Clark (Black Widow) and with the help of Marco Cimino (keys) and Gigi Venegoni (guitars) from the 70's Italian band Arti e Mestieri. Beautiful artwork made by Anna Ferrari in gatefold cover. (LP €18 & CD €17)
    Accordo Dei Contrari: Violato Intatto 2LP. Ma.Ra.Cash (MRCLP018). Nov. 2018. This double vinyl is much more than a reissue of Violato Intatto, as the original album is here embellished by two additional unreleased tracks, Onta Anexelenkta and Crash, recorded in February 2018.

    Agorà: Live in Montreux. Vinyl Magic (VM 086LP). 13/07/12. Founded in Ancona, Agorà curiously debuted with a live album instead of a studio one; music, as specified in the album notes, is clearly inspired by Weather Report, but the influence of their country fellowmen Perigeo is evident too. The artwork, made by Cesare Monti, is very peculiar too, with a front standing-up edge-cut tree. This is a faithful reproduction, in black audiophile 180gr. black vinyl.
    Ahmad Jamal Trio: Chamber Music Of The New Jazz. Naked Lunch (ND013). Street date: 19-06-20. Recorded in 1955 and originally released on the short-lived Parrot label, this recording is a stunning example of the creative, elegant, and precious music played by Ahmad Jamal's early trio.

    Amon Düül: Meetings with Menmachines Inglorious Heroes of the Past... Klimt Records (MJJ351LP). Nov. 2012. In its ultra rare artwork original! This LP was originally released in 1983 on the small British label, Illuminated Records with an album sleeve of original artwork that was soon inexplicably replaced by a mediocre band photo on all subsequent reissues. It was the second of four all-new studio albums made by this UK-based incarnation of Amon Düül. The new Amon Düül featured John Weinzierl on guitar, ex-Hawkwind bassist Dave Anderson (both from Amon Duul II), ex-Van Der Graaf Generator Guy Evans on drums, and Julie Waring on vocals. For this LP the band moved away from the more free-form freakout of their earlier days towards a sound that was far more structured and derivative, with definite New Wave / post-punk leanings. €16
    Amon Düül : Psychedelic Underground. Klimt (MJJ386). Street date: April 2016. Limited edition of 500 copies with gatefold cover

    Apryl Fool: S/T. Survival Research (SVVRCH008). Street date: 30-08-19. The story of Japanese psychedelic band Apryl Fool and their eponymous debut album is simply extraordinary. It was the vehicle by which bassist Haroumi Hosono first came to prominence, years before he became known as the "Godfather of Japanese electronica" as the founding member and leader of Yellow Magic Orchestra. Drummer Takashi "Rei" Matsumoto was a Beatles maniac, while pioneering prog-rock keyboardist Hiroyoshi Yanagida and guitarists Chu Kosaka and Eiji Kikuchi had all been part of a group called The Floral, formed in 1967 through the Japanese wing of the official fan club of The Monkees (whom they supported during a Japanese tour enacted in October 1968).
    Aquila: S/T. Klimt Records (MJJ370). Street date 14/04/14. Aquila was formed in 1970 by Welsh guitarist/vocalist Ralph Denyer, who had recently left the group Blonde On Blonde. Aquila's self-titled debut - and only long player - from the same year is a delicious mix of progressive rock, psych-pop sensibility, a Traffic-like funkiness, and pastoral country-rock. Produced by Nirvana's Patrick Campbell-Lyons and powered by Denyer's rugged vocal delivery, Aquila unfairly faded into obscurity rather quickly but has been sought after by collectors for over 30 years.
    Arabs In Aspic: Victim Of Father's Agony. Black Widow (BWR185). March 2016.
    Arabstazy: Under Frustration Vol. 1. Shouka (SHK5V3). Street date: 13-07-18. Under Frustration is a 3 volumes compilation project by Tunisian collective Arabstazy, establishing a picture of the contemporary electronic music scene in the Arab World. This musical journey stands for the diversity of this scene, and deconstructs the occidental perceptions that sees the Arab World as a culturally united and homogeneous entity. It is a manifesto for the burgeoning wave of post-revolution futurism.
    Arachnoid: S/T. Replica (RPC03). May 2014. This 1979 record is the sole album by the French band, architects of a dark progressive and psychedelic masterpiece, with a King Crimson flavor. "Arachnoid" is not only one of the best classic symphonic rock albums of the second half of the 70's, but also the most complicated and intriguing. LP reissue on 180 gr. vinyl and a limited edition of 500 copies
    Archie Shepp-Bill Dixon Quartet, The: S/T. Jeanne Dielman (JD117). Street date: 05-12-16. The debut as a leader for both Archie Shepp and Bill Dixon, two formidable members of the free-jazz and avant-garde elite, The Archie Shepp - Bill Dixon Quartet was originally released in 1962. Rounding out the quartet are bassists Reggie Workman and Don Moore, drummers Paul Cohen and Howard McRae, each on various tracks. While the album undoubtedly swings, this piano-less quartet definitely prefigures the trailblazing free-jazz work the two leaders would be involved in for the remainder of the decade, and beyond.
    Area: 1978 Gli Dei Se Ne Vanno Gli Arrabbiati Restano. Vinyl Magic (VM 142LP). 180 gr. vinyl reissue of this album from 1978. The music moves in a stronger free-jazz direction.

    Area: Are(A)zione. Akarma (AK 397 LP). 28/07/11. New 180 gr. vinyl reissue. €20
    Area: Are(A)zione. Gatefold LP 180 gram Get Back GET5104. For their fourth album (originally released in 1975 on Cramps), Area's unique sound combined the punch of rock with the frightening chaos of experimental music. The "International POPular Group" was a fascinating band. This album contains one song from each of their previous records plus a 15-minute jam (the title song) and a free-jazz interpretation of "L'Internazionale". €16,50
    Area: Arbeit Macht Frei. Akarma (AK 394 LP). 28/07/11. New 180 gr. vinyl reissue. €20
    Area: Arbeit Macht Frei. Get Back (GET LP5101). 2007. Debut album by the massively influential Italian prog group, originally released in 1973 on the experimental Italian Cramps label. This ground-breaking album sailed Italian music into uncharted waters and right off the edge of the earth. Experimental politicized rock with overtures to prog and jazz all held together by Stratos' otherworldly vocals. Reissued with the original gatefold sleeve and the infamous "gun" insert, originally only included in the first 1,000 copies (because it was considered too incendiary and if they continued the album would have been banned). €16,50
    Area: Caution Radiation Area. Akarma (AK 395LP). 28/07/11. New 180 gr. vinyl reissue. €20
    Area: Caution Radiation Area. LP 180 gram. Get Back GET5102. Originally released in 1974, the band's second album added increasing levels of fringe experimentation to their already weird recipe. €16,50

    Area: Crac. Akarma (AK 396LP). 28/07/11. New 180 gr. vinyl reissue. €20
    Area: Crac. Gatefold LP 180 gram. Get Back GET5103. Area's third album is an eclectic furnace of jazz-rock, ethnic folk, experimentation and an ethically conscious manifesto for the arising of the masses, which made Area an icon of the Italian music scene of the 1970s. This is perhaps the best confirmation of the band's crazy fusion: furious, mind-bending rhythms and melodies balanced with humor and the avant-garde. €16,50
    Area: Crac. Sony (88875135242) LP reissue. Sept. 2015
    Area: Event 76. €12

    Asia: Armed to the Teeth. Acid Nightmare (ANM012). 05/02/15. The American band Asia only recorded two albums, one in 1978 and the present in 1980. This album predates the Epic Prog Metal genre with a few years, to be followed by bands like Warlord and Dark Quarterer. Influenced by monsters like Uriah Heep, Styx, Rush and Black Sabbath, Asia cemented their name on all the want lists of prog/pomp collectors as well as more traditional metal fans. This reissue offers remastered sound and faithful cover reproduction. Limited to 500 copies
    Asia Minor: Points of Libration. AMSLP164. Pressed on turquoise vinyl. Street date: 29-01-21. Asia Minor is a Franco-Turkish progressive rock band led by two Turkish musicians who settled in Paris as students back in the 70's.

    Astra: The Black Chord. 2LP. The new 2012 album will be available on transparent orange AND splatter-coloured vinyl. Street date: 16/05/12
    Atlantide: S/T. Replica (RPC14). Street date: 03/09/15. Largely regarded as one of musical producer and engineer Jean-Pierre Massiera's major 70's projects, rather than being highlighted as a short-lived ensemble. While their sole, self-titled album failed on the path towards popularity and promotion, it is instead significantly appreciated for the classic-sounding, obscure and rare French prog treat it mirrors.
    Atlas, Natacha: Ayeshteni. €16

LP (AK357LP). 1969 self-titled debut album penned by a British band who probably were one of the most interesting groups in the British panorama of the late 60's / early 70's. Their sound was a manifestation of their desire to experiment with and masterfully blend different musical styles, such as rock, folk, jazz, and blues. If we must make comparisons, Jethro Tull immediately leaps to mind, particularly because of the band's use of flute. €16

    Ave Rock: Espacios. Svart Mondo. September 2020. Official reissue limited to 500 copies on black vinyl. Ave Rock's second album "Espacios" (1977) is their most accomplished effort! A pioneer of symphonic prog in Argentina, the band's compositions are extremely ambitious, with some epic, expansive songs clocking in at 21 and 15 minutes respectively. Ave Rock arranged eclectic musical motifs with lively and expert cohesiveness, a clever management of textures and tempo shifts, robust performance skills, and a solid interplay between members. Vocal harmonies bring to mind bands like Yes, with a dramatic sensibility influenced by Genesis, Pink Floyd's early eerie melancholy, and a healthy dose of their own special ethereal magic. The powerful rhythm section combines rocking dual guitars with piano chord progressions, layers of heavy organ and synthesizer, making the album a feast for the ears. Espacios is a milestone of high quality early South American prog.
    Ave Rock: S/T. Svart Records. Street date: 22-11-19.

    Luciano Berio / Pierre Boulez / Olivier Messiaen / Karlheinz Stockhausen: Serenata I / Sonatine / Cantéyodjayâ / Zeitmasze. Fantôme Phonographique (OME1024). Street date: 20-08-19. 180 gram vinyl reissue. In 1954 Boulez began staging a series of concerts of experimental music at the Petit Marigny theatre, Paris, titled Le Domaine musical. The pieces collected on this album are all taken from performances staged for the 1957 Domaine musical season, beginning with Berio's "Serenata I", conducted by Boulez, which debuted in Paris in March of that year; arranged for flute and fourteen instruments, Berio said that the idea behind the piece was for the solo flute to be confronted by continuously interchanging elements, rather than mere accompaniments or oppositions. Boulez' own "Sonatine", composed in 1946 for flute and piano, is a 12-tone piece that evidences Messiaen's influence, with shades of Asian classical music in places; then, Stockhausen's monumental "Zeitmasze" or "Time Measures", a serial composition for five woodwinds, played in different combinations of tempos and speed, was partly inspired by Webern's principles of homogenous and harmonic textures. Finally, Messiaen's 1949 work "Cantéyodjayâ", delivered by pianist Yvonne Loriod, takes it shape from the classical Hindu rhythms of ancient India, as with much of the composer's oeuvre.

Both CD releases were uncomplete, omitting some of the preludes and only the 3LP edition presents all 24 preludes (together with the 8 Pianology tunes), making this boxset the definitive edition! It also includes download codes and new notes by tBjørnstad himself.
    Black Merda: S/T. Lilith (LR111LP). Street date: 29-11-19. Hailing from late 60's Detroit, Black Merda were both aesthetically and musically way ahead of their time. When most black groups (including Parliament/ Funkadelic) were still sporting suits, singing about love and using a horn section, Black Merda had already become a tight guitar-heavy freak-funk four piece. By weaving guitar rock and psychedelia into soul and R&B, they were the gods of the underground 'black rock' movement which fell somewhere between Jimi Hendrix and Parliament and MC5. But it wasn't just about the music, the message was just as important. As with the original release, features a 30-second 11th track not mentioned in the track listing on the outer sleeve but present on the album.
    Black Widow: See's The Light Of The Day. Black Widow (BWR 145). 30/04/12.

    Paul Bley - Ornette Coleman - Don Cherry - Charlie Haden - Billy Higgins: Live At The Hillcrest Club 1958. Doxy 2LP (ACV4001DLP). Jan. 2014. Limited edition of 500 copies pressed on Audiophile Clear Vinyl (ACV) (scroll and check definition at Doxy Audiophile). This record marks a turning point in jazz history. It may be the earliest recorded example of what Ornette Coleman later called "free jazz" and it represents the first rumblings of the revolutionary movement which eventually shifted jazz thinking away from bebop. €20
    Blocco Mentale: ¶oa. Vinyl Magic VM 032 LP. 10/06/11. This very obscure and rare album from 1973 was maybe the first ecological conceptual album in the Italian prog history (singing about the evil of polluting the planet); it is today for the first time ever reissued in its gorgeous gimmick gatefold cover. Limited edition in five different colours: red, yellow, white, blue and green.
    Blue Phantom: Distortions (1971). AMSLP05. July 08. First legit reissue with its original artwork for what is mostly considered the best instrumental psych record coming out of Italy. Entirely instrumental, Distortions was released in Italy in 1971, along with a single, and later released in other European countries, among which England, this time with a complete different artwork. Superb fuzzed-out and wah guitars, moog... there's really plenty of "Distortions" here!!! Powerful rhythm section and fantastic guitar work, great production. €18
    Bob James Trio, The : Bold Conceptions. Doxy ACV (ACV2036). Oct. 2014. This is the original Bob James; his very first album, in fact, recorded at age 22 (and produced by Quincy Jones). First edition of 500 numbered copies.

    Bongusto, Fred: Conviene Far Bene L'Amore. Cinedelic (CNST710). Street date: 13-09-18. Limited vinyl edition of a 1975 film written and directed by Pasquale Festa Campanile, a film adaptation of his novel of the same name. It is an erotic comedy with science-fiction elements that is debilitating the theories of Wilhelm Reich (the author of The Function of the Orgasm) in which satire and fantapolitic are mixed. The original LP with the music of Fred Bongusto, arranged and directed masterfully by Josè Mascolo, has become a cult object for lovers of Italian melodic, bossa nova and jazz inflected soundtracks but also because of the samples used by many rappers.
    Booker Little: S/T. Down At Dawn (DAD150). Street date: 15-01-21. Recorded in 1960 for the Time label, this is Booker Little's second album as a leader. A dynamic and yet relaxed session with Little as the only horn in the band, a fine quartet featuring Winton Kelly or Tommy Flanagan on piano, Scott LaFaro on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums. A highly interactive combo inspired by Little's unique trumpet approach.
    Bobby Bradford / Frode Gjerstad Quartet: The Delaware River. NoBusiness Records (NBLP 87). Nov. 2015. Limited edition of 400 records. With Ingebrigt Håker Flaten on bass and Frank Rosaly on drums. Recorded on 29th of March 2014 at Philadelphia Art Alliance

The Bossa Tres were the first bossa nova instrumental group, formed in Sao Paolo in 1961 by Luiz Carlos Vinhas (piano), Edison Machado (drums), and Sebastião Neto (bass). The Trio were performing intensively throughout Brazil when they attracted the attention of Ed Sullivan, who invited them to the U.S.A. Bossa Tres is their first LP recording in the U.S., presenting an intriguing, swinging program of authentic Brazilian Bossa Nova tunes spiced with fresh new presentations of American jazz.
    Bowie, David: Sounds & Visions. Coda (CPLVBOX001). Street date: 25-09-20. This 10-inch double album collector's edition is pressed on gold vinyl. Featuring the very best of the performances from the Sound+Vision tour, it is unique as the 10-inch format brings an extra-dimension of exclusivity to the limited edition of only 1000 copies.

    Bowie, David: More Sounds & Visions. Coda (CPLTTV002). Street date: 25-09-20. Same remarks as above!

    Brainticket: Celestial Ocean. Lilith Records LP+CD (LR307LP). Street date: 22-02-18. This reissue of a concept album that details an ancient pharoahs journey into the afterlife (substitute the word "journey" for "trip" and youll get what they were driving at)is fully remastered from the original master tapes.
    Brainticket: Cottonwoodhill. Lilith Records Gatefold LP+CD (LR313LP). Street date: 22-02-18. Braintickets 1971 debut album begins normally enough with two fine psychedelic/Krautrock-influenced tracks, but the remainder of the album plays like an acid trip with a soundtrack, dominated by Joel Vandroogenbroeck's endless droning organ, a variety of musique concrète-type sound effects and vocalist Dawn Muir's trippy vocals.
    Brainticket: Psychonaut. Lilith Records LP+CD (LR312LP). Street date: 22-02-18. While with an entirely renewed line up Psychonaut still takes listeners into the realm of altered consciousness -- making heavy use of a droning Hammond, sitar, tablas, etc.-- this time the vocals are more melodic and the music itself is more song-oriented. This is by far Braintickets most accessible album, and perhaps their most timeless. Fully remastered from the original master tapes!
    Branca, Glenn: Lesson No. 1. 2 x 12" Superior Viaduct (SV039). March 2014. Glenn Branca made his first solo statement, Lesson No. 1, in 1980. The album unveiled his visionary guitar concepts with two monstrous, side-long compositions that helped forge NYC's downtown art-punk sound and acted as a massive influence on countless young groups, including Sonic Youth and Swans.
    Braxton, Anthony / Roach, Max: Birth and Rebirth. Black Saint Dig-A-Log (BS520001). 180 gram LP + CD. Oct. 2012. This album documents the historic meeting, (dated 1979) between Max Roach and Anthony Braxton, or rather the encounter between the tradition and the avant-garde in modern jazz. A profound dialogue between two major figures, the father of modern drumming and the young lion of creative music. €17
    Brazilian Octopus: S/T. Polysom Brazil (332251). Street date: 29-01-21. This is the only LP from the group Brazilian Octopus, featuring Hermeto Pascoal and Nilson da Matta. Originally released in 1969 on the Fermata label. Rare in its original format, it's therefore a much welcomed reissue of deep soul-funk grooves meet library-esque progressive cinematics and psychedelics meet jazz dance jams!
    Brecker Brothers, The: Live and Unreleased. Leopard (D 78072). 180 gram vinyl. Street date: 20-03-20. Recorded July 2nd, 1980 at Onkel Pö's Carnegie Hall, Hamburg, Germany. See description in the CD section!
    Brian Davison's Every Which Way: S/T. Trading Places (TDP54060). Street date: 05-03-21. This self-titled debut LP, released by Charisma in 1970 and put together by the ex-Nice drummer, was an intense slice of prog with excellent sax solos, emotive vocals, tasteful bass, soaring guitar and forceful drumming. With Davidson drifting into Refugee and Alan Cartwright soon joining Procol Harum, it also became the group's sole release. Well worth exploring, it's another highly sought-after album for fans of well-produced prog.
    Brown And Roach Incorporated: S/T. Down at Dawn (DAD142). Street date: 12-07-19. Recorded at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles in August 1954, this is the first Emarcy recording of the legendary Brown & Roach Quintet featuring the great Harold Land on tenor sax, Richie Powell on piano and George Morrow on bass.

    Brown, James: Tell Me What You're Gonna Do. Rumble (RUM2011099LP). Shipping date: 18/06/15. The 4th James Brown LP, originally released in 1961, is regarded among collectors as one of the finest pure R&B albums of its era. And it includes some of his best charting singles such as "Just You And Me Darling" and "Lost Someone".
    Brown, James: The Singles Vol. 1 (1956-57) & 2 (1957-60). Honey Pie (HONEY031 / 032). Street date: 09-04-21. Split in two volumes, here is the sum of James Brown's early five year period 1956 - 1960, when JB (and his Famous Flames) was obsessively searching for his own sound. Selected from a bunch of 19 two-sided singles, and including several super hits, this collection represents James Brown's fundamental groundwork for the coming Soul Music revolution.
    Brown, James: Think! Wax Love (WLV82090). Street date: 19-07-18. The 3rd studio album from James Brown and The Famous Flames, originally released in 1960. This reissue includes one bonus track
    Brown, James & His Famous Flames: Try Me. Rumble Records (RUM2011127LP). Street date: 26-05-16. Released in 1959, this album is the epitome of late 50's R&B and an essential addition to any collection.
    Brown, Marion: Three For Shepp. Superior Viaduct (SV 165). Street date: 14-06-19. Originally released on Impulse!, Brown's debut lays down three startling originals and three tunes by Shepp echoing his mentor's 1964 homage to Coltrane, Four For Trane. Featuring Grachan Moncur III on trombone, Dave Burrell on piano and Norris "Sirone" Jones on bass, Three For Shepp balances fiery energy and delicate precision.
    Brubeck, Dave: Brubeck Time. Wax Love (WLV82124). Street date: 17-05-19. This album - recorded in 1954 - features one of the earlier Quartet lineups, with Bob Bates on bass and Joe Dodge on drums. Although now not as famous as some of the band's other albums, in retrospect it has a lot of depth, and those interested in jazz will find it "certainly worth acquiring".
    Brubeck, Dave: Reunion. Wax Love (WLV82129). Street date: 17-05-19. An interesting and quite obscure 1957 album from the Dave Brubeck quartet featuring alto sax giant Paul Desmond, bassist Bob Dates and the great Joe Morello on drums. Here the group is augmented by tenor saxophonist Dave Van Kreidt. All the music is composed by him and the overall sound is very different from the classic Brubeck line up. This is some sort of classical influenced West Coast Jazz and unlike anything else in the Dave Brubeck discography!
    Brubeck, Dave: Time Out. LP release date 31/01/08. €16
    Bruford, Bill: Feels Good To Me. Winterfold BBWF003LP. 09/11/09. Limited edition (1000 copies) on 180 gr. vinyl of the debut album (78) by drummer Bill Bruford's band. Street date: 09/11/09

    Burrell, Kenny: Midnight Blue. DOL (DOL881HG). Street date: 19-04-19. 180 gram vinyl reissue. The classic Blue Note 1963 album featuring Ray Barretto on congas. Pure boogaloo!
    Burrell, Kenny: Vol. 2. Doxy (DOX856LP). Jan. 2014. With the '56 cover art by Andy Warhol. On this album, the guitarist can be heard in many ways, from solo to a simple rhythm section setting; as part of a wailing quintet; and taking part in a night club jam session that involves two horns, rhythm and himself. Clearly, then, there is no danger at any time that monotony will set in. €16
    Burrell, Kenny with Art Blakey: At The Five Spot Cafe. Jeanne Dielman (JD124). Street date: 12-07-18. 2nd set of a show recorded on August 25, 1959. Also featuring the under-recorded tenor saxophonist Tina Brooks
    Bush Chemists: Light Up Your Spliff. LP Mania Dub (MD003). Street date: 22-06-18. Douglas Wardrop began creating music using a 4-track recorded in 1989, before forming The Bush Chemists in 1993 with Paul Davey and Culture Freeman. He provided the master tracks of this release.
    Bushman´s Revenge: Bushman´s Fire. Rune Grammofon (RLP2186). Street date: 02-09-16. This, their second live album, captures the band at Oslo´s rock den Café Mono at their most cosmic and trippy, taking their progjazz explorations into outer space and beyond. With an extended line-up including sax giant Kjetil Møster and Hammond whizz David Wallumrød they stir up quite a storm, with "Total Fucking Marmalade" being a brand new track, "Yoga" being an extended workout of "Baklengs Inn I Fuglekassa" from the "Thou Shalt Boogie!" album and "As We Used To Sing", the Sonny Sharrock tune and a live favourite that´s been with them since the beginning!
    Bushman's Revenge: A Little Bit of Big Bonanza. Rune Grammofon (RLP3123). 20/01/12. Vinyl edition in gatefold sleeve with free mp3 download of the whole album.
    Bushman's Revenge: Never Mind The Botox. Rune Grammofon (RLP3125). 20/01/12. LP only release, the companion of the Bonanza album, recorded during the same sessions in Athletic Sound. Here they cover some of their personal favourites, fully showing the diversity of artists that is so typical for the listening habits of young Norwegian musicians not subscribing to specific genres. Meaning you will find Back Sabbath and Pixies side by side with Ornette Coleman and Sun Ra. And with "Bushman Rock" they also cover themselves! This song was left off the "Jitterbug" album but they recorded a vastly improved version for this new album. €15
    Byrd, Charlie: Royal Flush. Doxy (DOX861LP). 180 gr. vinyl reissue. Street date: 17/05/12. Byrd's eighth album for Blue Note, originally released in 1961, this album is also known introducing a 21-year-old Herbie Hancock to the jazz world, in his first ever recorded session! The album also features Hancock's first recorded composition, "Requiem". €16
    Byrd, Donald: Byrd in Hand. Jeanne Dielman (JD122). Street date: 10-05-18. Reissue. Recorded in 1959 at the legendary Van Gelder Studios in Hackensack, New Jersey, this is considered one of Donald Byrd's finest LPs.
    Byrd, Donald: Cat Walk. Alternative Fox (FOX029). The 1962 Blue Note release "The Cat Walk" was a critical success; most songs were written by pianist Duke Pearson, who makes crucial contribution, along with understated drummer Philly Joe Jones, relaxed strolling bass from Laymon Jackson, and rousing sax from longstanding collaborator, Pepper Adams.
    Byrd, Donald: Free Form. Doxy (DOX896LP). 22/08/13. Recorded in 1961 with a stellar line up (Shorter-Hancock-Higgins), this album is here reissued with a bonus track left off the original album (but from the same sessions), a lovely Herbie Hancock penned cut!
    Byrd, Donald: Fuego. Down At Dawn (DAD 121). Street date: 13-12-18. Reissue and limited edition of this Blue Note recording from 1959.
    Cage, John: 25 Year Retrospective Concert, NYC 15th May 1958. Modern Silence (OI011). Street date: 14-07-16. Includes booklet with comments by Cage himself. Limited edition of 500 numbered copies, pressed on 180 gram vinyl.

    John Cage, David Tudor & Christian Wolff: San Francisco Museum Of Art, January 16th, 1965. Modern Silence (OI014). Street date: 29-08-16. Limited edition pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Recorded live by KPFA Radio in the halls of the sculpture court of the San Francisco Museum of Art on January 16, 1965, this historic concert with John Cage opens with a duet for Cymbal with contact microphones agitated by a wide gamut of objects and concludes with Variations IV in which loudspeakers outside the performance space interacted with speakers next to the audience. First release on vinyl for a very important piece in the history of minimalist music.
    John Cage . Christian Wolff: S/T. Jeanne Dielman (JD118). Street date: 05-12-16. John Cage and Christian Wolff's self-titled 1962 LP was an early showcase of both 20th century composer's experimental chops, and is highly regarded as some of their finest work.
    Calibro 35: High Tension Vol. 35 / Calibro 35 plays Lesiman. AMS (AMS LP155). Street date: 20-09-19. 180 gr. black vinyl edition. Born in 2007 as a music project of renewal and 'update' of the Italian film soundtracks of the early 70's, especially those of the police/crime movies, Calibro 35 immediately imposed themselves within the international music scene, thanks to the wide range of their proposal. This time, the quartet's action scope slightly shifts towards library music, reworking some compositions by the famous Paolo Renosto / Lesiman team, firstly published in the early 70's. "High Tension vol. 35" is therefore naturally different from anything the group has delivered to date: ethereal, abstract, much more jazzy and open to improvisation, while also making use of the typical rock music instruments. The quartet includes Enrico Gabrielli on wind instruments and keyboards, Massimo Martellotta on guitars and keyboards, Luca Cavina on bass and Fabio Rondanini on drums
    Califfi, I: Fiori di Metallo. Vinyl Magic 180 Gr. VM122LP. Very good prog album (72), based on organ and moog sounds, with two outstanding instrumental tracks. A megararity, finally reissued on LP. €18

    Camembert; Negative Toe. AltrOck (ALT058LP). March 2018. The 2nd album of the eccentric and eclectic "ensemble" from Strasbourg (more like a small orchestra!) is now also available in vinyl! The sound engineering is just incredible!
    Camisasca: La Finestra Dentro. GDR BBXL 10005. Jan. 2013. This album can be compared with Alan Sorrenti's first album in the use of voice as an instrument, with sparse musical accompaniment on some tracks. Produced by Franco Battiato - who also plays the VCS3 synth on it - it is here reissued in a faithful replica of the original 1974 edition
    Camisasca, Juri: Evoluzione Interiore. 2LP Black Sweat (BS037). March 2018. The recordings which make up "Evoluzione Interiore", Camisasca's sixth full length release, are lost artifacts from a crucial period from the composer's creative development. Recorded at the end of the 70's, they fall within the unheard shadows of the period between the release of "La Finestra Dentro", and the appearance of his second LP, "Te Deum", in 1988.
    Camizole: S/T. 2LP. Le Souffle Continu (ffl029). Street date: 30-11-18. The Tapioca label run by Jean Georgakarakos (co-founder of BYG Records), originally considered producing an album from a live recording made at the Théâtre de Chartres in November 1977. Unfortunately the label rapidly ceased all activities and the recording was left in a drawer, which was a real shame. Today, after extracts and other live bits and pieces came out via Spalax at the end of the 90's, an integral double-album is finally being released to do justice to the collective created by Jacky Dupéty, and which included, amongst others Dominique Grimaud (Vidéo-Aventures), Chris Chanet (Etron Fou Leloublan, Urban Sax), Xavier Jouvelet (notably heard alongside Lol Coxhill) and Bernard Filipetti (Art & Technique).

    Camizole: S/T. Replica (RPC029). Street date: 15-10-17. In 1975, Camizole was an early French electronic duet that used to play many summer festivals. Thus, a recording was done at "Festival de Solymieux", then was sent to Klaus Schulze and Klaus D. Müller, who were interested in producing an album. Unfortunaly, the band didn't last long enough. 42 years later, this sought-after tape resurfaces on a limited vinyl edition for the first time ever.
    Camizole + Lard Free: S/T. Le Souffle Continu (ffl030). Street date: 30-11-18. Before exploring constructed repetitive forms which would be perfected by Urban Sax, Lard Free were more in the domain of noise improvisation, or even a kind of jazz rock similar to that of Soft Machine. There was logically great complicity between Camizole and Lard Free, which would lead to the two groups finally merging. This album presents unreleased recordings, live in Montagnac, July 30th, 1978. Limited edition of 500 copies with Obi strip.

    Can: Doko E. Live In Cologne 1973. DBQP (DBQP21). Street date: 10-05-19. Another rehash and it seems that DBQP is in fact a repress of what was previously known as B13! Sad and worrying to see distributors wasting time with that kind of hypocrit false new releases!

Behind the mysterious acronym lies an impressive quartet made up of 4 of France's best musicians of that era: André Ceccarelli on drums, Marc Chantereau on keyboards and percussion, Christian Padovan on bass and Slim Pezin on guitar.

Also known as "Principe Di Un Giorno", this is the first album originally released on the small Grog label in 1976 (though the music had already been recorded in 1974).

    Central Unit: S/T. Vinyl Magic (VM156LP). 2013. Central Unit were a unique case in the Italian scene of the 80's. Coming from Bologna and active during the years of the so-called 'post-new wave', it was clear that they would not settle on the small Italian scene, given the international scope of their proposal: new wave, electronic, a pinch of jazz and improvisation, for an almost entirely instrumental music in which the rhythmic component dominates everything.
    Centrozoon: Never Trust The Things They Do. This is a limited edition vinyl companion to the 2004's experimental electronic pop release "Never Trust the Way You Are".

    Cherry, Don: Where Is Brooklyn? Klimt (MJJ383). Jan. 2015. With saxophonist Pharoah Sanders backing Cherry on the front line, this album is a quartet set, strongly influenced by the melodic approach of Ornette Coleman, but with a fierce abstraction of tone quite different from Coleman's playful lyricism. Moreover, the rhythm team of Ed Blackwell on drums and Henry Grimes on bass provides a scintillating underpinning for the music that is worth listening to all on its own.
    Cherry, Don & Gato Barbieri: Togertherness. Klimt Records (MMJ387). Street date: 29-08-16. Limited edition of an explosive live Parisian recording, made with the French rhythm section of Jean-François Jenny-Clark on bass, Aldo Romano on drums + Karl Berger on vibes.

The rhythms and the typical sound of the Moog synthesizer of the late 70's create the right atmosphere, which is a pleasure for the listener who dives back in time and can imagine the daring exploits of the protagonist. Originally C.A.M. had released a single with the two tracks "Speed Machine" and "Crazy Town" (AMP 198). But thanks to the stereo master tapes from the recording session, the label had the opportunity to assemble a CD with the entire fabulous OST (43:36 minutes).

The debut album by Ornette Coleman (first published in 1958) shocked the environment of jazz, revolutionizing that close union between blues and jazz that was the very premise of Afro-American music.

    Coltrane, Alice: Eternity. Antarctica Starts Here (ASH311). Street date: 11-04-19. Album combining the drones and textures of India, the gospel and R&B of Ms. Coltrane's Detroit youth and the dissonance of modern classical composition.

While all three records featured strings alongside a jazz ensemble, Lords Of Lords stood apart from its predecessors due to the sheer size of the orchestra (12 violins, 6 violas and 7 cellos, arranged and conducted by Coltrane herself) and its refined, blissful performances - shining a vital light on the devotional path that she would follow for the rest of her career. This first-time vinyl reissue has been carefully remastered from the original master tapes.
    Coltrane, Alice: Radha-Krsna Nama Sankirtana. Antarctica Starts Here (ASH312). Street date: 11-04-19. Originally released in 1977, Coltrane's music during this period grew out of an epiphany that musically meant leaving jazz behind (at least partially) and embracing the chants and rhythms of devotional music.
    Coltrane, Alice: Transcendence. Antarctica Starts Here (ASH313). Street date: 11-04-19. Side one consists of intimate compositions with Alice's pointillist harp enhanced by intricate string arrangements while side two moves into celestial territory with uplifting chants, light handclaps and bluesy organ. These call-and-response chants, featuring members from her Ashram, completely embody both African-American gospel and Hindu devotional traditions, an uncanny fusion that is transformed through Alice's pure spirit.
    Coltrane, Alice: Transfiguration. Antarctica Starts Here (ASH314). Street date: 11-04-19. Transfiguration, featuring drummer Roy Haynes and bassist Reggie Workman, showcases Alice's many compositional talents and fierce improvisatory abilities. Throughout this double LP set - a live performance at University of California in April 1978 in Los Angeles - her playing evokes the time spent in her late husband John Coltrane's band and the avant-garde music of her earlier years.
    Coltrane, Alice: Universal Consciousness. Superior Viaduct (SV070). Shipping date: 18/06/15. This first-time vinyl reissue has been carefully remastered from the original master tapes.

In 1958 Coltrane was deeply exploring the Hard Bop idiom, that's when the saxophonist was still playing around with Monk and Davis and just before he would begin leading his own groups. A fine document!

    Comelade, Pascal: Sentimientos. Etats-Unis (ETAT15). Street date: 11-04-20. Record Store Day Special and first-time reissue limited to 750 numbered copies. Originally released in 1982, Pascal Comelade's Sentimientos is one of the most elusive and sought after LPs in the French composer's vast catalogue. Recorded on a two-track Revox machine, the album is an eclectic series of brief pieces - only two of the twenty tracks exceed four minutes - showcasing his poetic imagination and impressive range. While much of Comelade's early work hints at many of the major electronic movements to come, Sentimientos remains earthbound and organic. Melodic fragments performed on piano, organ, plastic saxophone, vibes, guitar, toy piano, ukulele and synthesizer place Comelade's boundless creative spirit on display.

The sound veers from crazed ethno folk-rock to magical, gentle, jungle folk psych zones, to hard hitting, coke dusted fuzz rock, to insane mutant disco dance floor groove, to tweaked Americana, to acid vocal raga trance, and way beyond...
    Lula Cortes & Zé Ramalho: Paebirú. 2LP Polysom (334141). Street date: 28-06-19.

Ranging from straight up feedback to reworkings of standards, outdoor recordings to spoken word, improvisation to vaudeville, Ear Of Beholder covers more ground in 2 LPs than most artists do in a lifetime. Difficult, adventurous listening from one of British jazz's most brilliant innovators. Reissued on 180 gram vinyl with gatefold cover

Featuring the Miles Davis Sextet and the Thelonious Monk Quartet recorded in 1958 and 1963, respectively, this classic album features two of jazz music's most famous groups at the peak of their powers. This 1958 recording from Miles Davis is, in fact, one of the finest live documents of the classic Kind Of Blue era group featuring Coltrane and Adderley, along with the great Bill Evans on piano. Monk's group as usual featured tenor-man Charlie Rouse, with help from Pee Wee Russell on clarinet, and they really stretch out on two 10+ minute tracks.

Recorded at the Lighthouse Café in Hermosa Beach, CA, on September 13, 1953, this is a historic recording for many reasons, and one of the earliest meetings of East and West Coast jazz artists.

He was a West Coast jazz bassist who formed the Lighthouse All Stars in 1949, a long standing group that performed at the Hermosa Beach club every Sunday night for nearly decennies. Though he might not be a household name, his group featured such alumnus as Jimmy Giuffre, Shorty Rogers, Max Roach, Bud Shank, Sonny Criss, Hampton Hawes, Shelly Manne, and more.

    Deuter: Princess Of Dawn - Soundtracks. Black Sweat (BS041). March 2018. First issued in 1973, this is Deuter's third album. Realized as a library record, it has never been issued for general or public release. Comprised of twenty six short, discrete works, it encounters an artist with roots in the avant-garde and sonic experimentation, beginning to look farther afield - stretching toward the ethereal ambiences for which he would subsequently become known. Threaded with drones, off kilter melodies, hints at a diverse number of folk traditions across the globe, and rippling synthesis, it is a continuously evolving wonder as it unfolds.

"Forro Do Jackson", originally released in 1958 on Copacabana Records, stands as a highly infectious mix of exuberant, energetic roots-music based on a wave of inventive syncopations between vocals and percussion, melody, and rhythm.

    Dockstader, Tod: Organized Sound: Drone; Two Fragments From Apocalypse; Water Music. Doxy limited edition LP (DOZ426). 500 copies. Street date: 14/04/14. Dockstader was part of the first wave of electronic musicians, who, before the advent of synthesizers in the early 1960s, worked with whatever hardware they could find: reel-to-reel tape machines, sine wave generators and a wild array of homemade circuits and military surplus gear. In the process, they created a universe of electronic music that still sounds unique and prescient today. €16

    Donna / Tabula Rasa: Pop-Liisa 18. Svart Records. Street date: 09-03-18. Black or pink vinyl (limited to 200 copies). Donna's set could be called a true lost gem - this reggae-influenced rock group only recorded one single (on Love Records) before disbanding in 1979. This four track radio session features only previously unheard tracks and offers an idea of what a Donna album might have sounded like. Tabula Rasa are one of the most influential and important acts of the Progressive Rock movement in 70's Finland, and this radio session is the only surviving document of their later period after the departure of their original singer Jukka Leppilampi.

From easy-going psych driven by strong vocal harmony to spaced-out territory via extended instrumental jamming, led by the parallel playing of bass, violin and keyboards, this edition also includes one bonus track, taken from the "Torch Song" single B-side and here placed as opening track of the LP.
    Doxy Audiophile Clear Vinyl Series an explanation! Audiophile Clear Vinyl (ACV) is made using the highest quality co-polymer available and processed without any carbon additive in order to dramatically reduce the "electrical distortion" often found on records (by itself the co-polymer of vinyl is transparent. In order to color the record in black, the plant must use a carbon additive with trace metals that can become magnetized. This is what causes electrical distortion during playback). That is the reason why Doxy chose to offer their records in the following manner:
    - Audiophile Clear Vinyl (ACV)
    - 140 gr. vinyl
    - 25 minutes maximum per side

An early progenitor of the avant-garde and musique concrete, Dubuffet's recordings nearly defy category and still sound innovative some 50+ years later. Essential and unequivocal recordings from the founder of the Art Brut movement.

The songs selected for this release are those composed by Keith Emerson and Goblin, the latter being a pseudonym of the only Fabio Pignatelli.

    Equipe 84: Sacrificio. Sony (88691989031) LP reissue of an album from 1974. Street date: 13/04/12. This album would be their most determined (and only real) effort at joining the prog scene; despite a good songwriting, great melodies and vocals, lots of typical Italian progressive rock instrumentation like organ, piano, flute, and strings, all very tastefully arranged, the band wouldn't gain enough recognition as a prog band!

    Evans, Bill: From Left To Right. Klimt (MJJ410CW). Street date: 09-11-20. Pressed on white vinyl, here is one of Evans' most intriguing "lost" records. The novelty is that he plays both Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano simultaneously in real time, trading off themes and improvs with deliberative taste and, of course, rare skill. The sessions were produced by Evans' long-time, protective manager Helen Keane, so there was little danger of "selling out".
    Evans, Bill: Interplay. Doxy (DOX891LP) 180 gr. vinyl. 11/07/13. Originally released in 1962 on the Riverside label, Interplay features piano giant Bill Evans at his gently swinging best. The band is beyond stellar; Percy Heath and Philly Joe Jones complete the rhythm section, while Jim Hall's guitar and Freddie Hubbard's trumpet round out the sessions.
    Evans, Bill: The Blues And The Abstract Truth. Doxy ACV2059. Street date: 18-01-16. Limited edition of 500 copies pressed on Audiophile Clear Vinyl (ACV) (scroll and check definition at Doxy Audiophile). Note that this is the same record as the one previously released under the name of arranger Oliver Nelson .... a classical marketing trick, not always showing good taste! €16
    Evans, Bill / Manne, Shelly / Budwig, Monty: Empathy. Doxy (ACV2086). Street date: 05-05-17. This album came about through a fortuitous convergence of circumstances.

    Evans, Bill & Zetterlund, Monica: Waltz For Debby. Audio Clarity (ACL0027). Street date: 13-09-19. Reissue of this lovely collection of cool, smooth jazz ballads.

    E.X.P.: Pachamama. Heavy Psych Sounds (HPS014). Street date: 13/02/14. This album was originally released by Beard of Stars on CD in 2002. Pachamama is a precious gem in the history of Heavy Italian Psychedelia, an incredible album that unfortunately came out during a period when the scene was not so healthy and alert like the one we are living in now. To correct this, Heavy Psych Sounds is reissuing this classic on limited edition vinyl in 3 different colors (150 red, 150 transparent blue, and 200 green with white splatter).

    Fall, The: Totale's Turns (It's Now Or Never). Superior Viaduct (SV146). Street date: 18-10-18. Totale's Turns, The Fall's first live album, was released on Rough Trade just prior to their pivotal third album, 1980's "Grotesque".
    Farrah, Shamek & Sonelius Smith: The World Of The Children. Svart Records (SRE380). Street date: 22-11-19. Black vinyl, limited edition of 500 copies. One of the rarest albums on the infamous Jazz label Strata-East from 1977 and it's a spiritual soul jazz masterpiece. Sonelius Smith's free piano comes together with Shamek Farrah's heartfelt saxophone for a totally unforgettable journey into the meaning of sacred jazz. Fresh and imaginative, but not too improvisational. Rhapsodic but never over-indulgent and with a raucous, bold groove that is in a real classic Strata East mold.
    Fattoruso, Hugo: Hugo Fattoruso Y Barrio OPA. Far Out Recordings (FARO204LP). 180 Gr. LP. Street date: 29-06-18. After a twenty-year search for the man behind the cult 70s jazz-funk group Opa, Far Out are honoured to present Barrio Opa: a new work from Fattoruso and his team of world-class musicians, including the sensational Candombe drumming of the renowed Silva Brothers. Recorded at Sondor Studios, Montevideo, the album is the natural development of the original Opa sound, fusing Afro-Uruguayan rhythms, jazz harmony and heavy funk attitude, under Hugo's unique musical vision.
    Faust: 71 Minutes. Recommended (RERVF1DLP). Street date: 07-04-16. Reissue on 180 gram vinyl of this posthumous 2LP with unreleased stuff from the early time! Faust is a cult group who defined the Krautrock genre; this release should appeal to all fans.
    Faust: S/T. Lilith Records(LR138LP). Street date: 15-02-18. Don't miss this 1971 cult classic debut album, now reissued with its original clear printed sleeve on 180 gram clear vinyl.

    Fedrigotti, Michele / Lorenzini, Danilo: I Fiori del Sole. Song Cycle (CY990). 180 gram LP. Street date: 08-06-17. Originally released in 1979 under the experimental label Cramps, "I Fiori del Sole" is a composition for organ and piano by the Italian duo Michele Fedrigotti and Danilo Lorenzini. The encounter between minimalist aesthetic and evocative religious atmospheres make this album one of the most interesting and obscure treasures of the Italian Minimalism. The album was produced by the legendary Franco Battiato!
    Fela Ransome-Kuti And His Koola Lobitos: S/T. Klimt (MJJ303LP). Street date: 19-10-17. In early 1965, just as the West African High-life scene was starting to get boring, the revolutionary sound of Fela Ransome Kuti & His Koola Lobitos burst upon us. A strikingly original musician, Fela Kuti was trained at the Trinity College of Music in London. From the very first, he was influenced by those "greats" of the jazz world - Thad Jones and Miles Davis. He gained much practical experience gigging in his spare time with London-based jazz men. A very talented musician - Fela's primary instrument is the trumpet, but he is also a swinging pianist and rave vocalist, as well as a composer and arranger. A musicians' musician. To maintain his reputation as West Africa's leading musician, Fela continuously experimented with varying forms of High-life and other exotic rythmic patterns. The results of these experiments are evident on all the numbers on this LP. Even the old familiar tunes have that new and original High-life tempo that Fela has made his own!

    Feldman, Morton & Brow, Earle: Morton Feldman & Earle Brown. Doxy 180 Gr. LP (DOZ421LP). Dec. 2013. Finally back in print, this rare Morton Feldman/Earle Brown split LP was originally released in 1962 on the small NY-based Time Records and features Feldman's "Durations I-IV" on side A and Brown's "Hodograph I", "Music for Violin, Cello and Piano" and "Music for Cello and Piano" on side B. David Tudor is featured on piano throughout. €15
    Fernández, Agustí / Mockunas, Liudas: Improdimensions. NoBusiness Records (NBLP 132). July 2020. Limited edition of 300 copies. Recorded in 2018 & 2019 during "Improdimensija" (Improdimension), a concert series dedicated to improvised music, located at MAMAstudios, Vilnius, Lithuania
    Fidenco, Nico: Black Emmanuelle. Dagored (RED204P). Picture Disc. Street date: 12-10-17. The score for Black Emanuelle is by turns sultry and serious, fun and funky. The sound is sophisticated, groovy and melodically memorable; mixing latin rhythms - in a continuous sexual tension with the exotic images of the beautiful Laura Gemser - and electronic textures that show the influence of early techno masters such as Giorgio Moroder and Kraftwerk.
    Fidenco, Nico: Blue Jeans. Digit Movies (LPDM023). Street date: 08-11-19. Limited edition of 300 copies (also available on CD as CDDM304). This is the original soundtrack of the film "Blue Jeans". An EP single (Rca TBBO 1114) was originally released with the songs "Blue Jeans" and "A Final Step," performed by the group Cyan, which open sides A and B. For this LP the original tapes in full stereo (preserved in the RCA archives) have been used. Nico Fidenco composed a pleasant soundtrack with a pastoral flair which is dominated by the main theme, a romantic ballad we hear in a faster and slower vocal version. It is then reprised with different instruments: cheerful and rhythmic flute, harmonica and orchestra, harmonica and strings with a touch of country, harpsichord, and classic guitar.
    Finisterre: XXV. AMS (AMSLP152). May 2019. This new release delivers Finisterre's entire first album completely re-recorded in the studio, as double 180 gram black vinyl with gatefold cover and a brand new artwork. The vinyl edition also contains an exclusive 10-minute 'long version' of the "...dal caos", lasting twice as long as in the CD version!
    Firyuza: S/T. Cool Cult (CCR407). Street date: 22-11-19. A veritable holy grail of jazzy soviet space-rock, pressed in Tashkent in minute numbers for Melodiya, this album is comprised of only four extended pieces, the elaborate arrangements and otherworldly sound aligning it with the farthest reaches of progressive rock, jazz fusion items and other creations from cosmic pioneers. The incorporation of natural elements such as ocean waves and wind sounds are also non-standard, rendering this one of the strangest and most compelling issues of its kind!
    Fire!: Defeat. Rune Grammofon (RLP3217). Steet date: 19-02-21. 7th release by the trio, this time again with guests: Goran Kajfes and Mats Äleklint. The flute gets a prominent role in the sound field and if the expression seems slightly more reserved than earlier, the characteristic bass figures and hypnotic atmospheres are still there!
    Fisher, Morgan: Water Music. Tiger Bay (TB6454). Street date: 21-06-19. 180 gram LP with gatefold cover. Recorded in 1985, Water Music is the first "Japanese" solo album by Mott The Hoople keyboard player Morgan Fisher. There are four ambient tracks played out as a multi-sensorial improvisation on Yamaha DX7 digital synthesizer, grand piano, tape delays, bowed guitar, and shell chimes. The result is a highly contemplative album that flows as a powerful yet ethereal journey through the element of water. Completely remastered in 2018 with 2 bonus tracks recorded in Tokyo in 1995, this gatefold edition features new notes from Morgan Fisher.
    Flaming Tunes: S/T. Superior Viaduct (SV170). Street date: 18-09-20. Flaming Tunes' sole release is perhaps the finest elegy to the 80's home recording ethos that you've never heard. Originally released in 1985 on cassette (with individually hand-colored covers), this self-titled album grew out of the collaboration between childhood friends Gareth Williams and Mary Currie. Williams is best known as a member of English art-rock band This Heat. Using whatever instruments they had on hand (clarinet, piano, bells, etc.), Flaming Tunes created lo-fi melodies around simple arrangements, oblique rhythms and densely layered natural sounds. The results are a mesmeric collage of instrumental daydreams and sideways pop songs, floating into one another in a hazy confluence of late '60s Canterbury psych-folk and early Residents experimentation.
    Fleetwood Mac: Capitol Theatre, Passaic, 17-10-75 - WBFH. Radio Loop Loop (RLL018). Street date: 13-12-19.
    Fleetwood Mac: In Concert Live At The Boston Tea Party (February 5, 6, 7 1970). Vinyl Lovers (900571). 4LP boxset. Street date: 04-09-20. In February 1970 the band rocked the legendary Boston Tea Party playing three amazing concerts there for three consecutive nights in a row. The performances were recorded in hopes of releasing a live album but front man Peter Green soon announced his decision to quit the band and the masters were promptly shelved. These recordings - eventually trickled out onto a few albums during the 1980s but with consistently poor sound quality - were finally remixed at SRT studios in 1998. First time on vinyl, a 4LP "book style" collector edition.
    Fleetwood Mac: Live at the Record Plant in Sausalito, 15-12-74. Radio Loop Loop (RLL021). Street date: 13-12-19. Broadcast on KSAN-FM San Francisco CA, with introduction by Tom Donahue.

    Fluence: S/T. Etats-Unis (ETAT14). Street date: 11-04-20. Record Store Day Special. Fluence is the brainchild and first release of sound artist /provocateur Pascal Comelade. Recorded in Montpellier, France in 1974-1975, the project consists of exploratory electronic pieces in the Fripp & Eno vernacular with a Kosmische tinge. Also featuring Richard Pinhas' howling guitar, which variously resembles a dreamlike cello and ghostly human moans. This first-time standalone reissue is limited to 750 numbered copies.
    Flynt, Henry: Graduation. Superior Viaduct (SV 014). Jan. 2013. 2LP + digital download card. Graduation, recorded between 1975 and 1979, was meant to be the debut of Flynt's avant-garde hillbilly music.
    Flynt, Henry: You Are My Everlovin'. Superior Viaduct (SV 144). Street date: 23-11-17. Flynt's first published musical work, finds the composer in peak form at a lower Manhattan loft in late spring 1981. Featuring solo electric violin and pre-recorded tambura, this sinuous performance elegantly brings together disparate vernaculars - Southern blues, modal jazz, Appalachian fiddle, North Indian raga into a new and bracing whole.
    Follet, Kevin: Viscera. Epictronic (EPIC024V18). Street date: 22-11-19. The origins of Kevin Follet, multi-instrumentalist and experimental electronic artist, have their roots in the Verona area of Italy. His music can be defined as "crepuscular", the dark and obscure tones are predominant in his compositions, with connotations between the delicate, the abrasive and the infected. A fundamental characteristic of KF is the reluctance to restrictions and to be able to freely explore the sound panoramas without any preconception or direction of any sort is fundamental for him. In 2017 he got signed to the German label Blue Tunes Chillout for the release of two releases "Just A Scratch On The Surface" and "Viscera".
    Fontaine, Brigitte: Brigitte Fontaine Est... Folle. Superior Viaduct (SV041). Street date: 12/12/13. Debut album from 1968 by the French poet and chameleonic vocalist, an essential link in French pop music, exuberantly pushing the genre into more conceptual and experimental sounds. Fontaine takes flight over conductor Jean Claude Vannier's brilliant arrangements. Vannier, best known for his work on Serge Gainsbourg's Histoire De Melody Nelson, is in fine form, using what would become his trademark stylings: lush strings, taut rhythms culled from across the globe and a healthy dose of whimsy.
    Fontaine, Brigitte: Comme à la Radio. Superior Viaduct (SV042). Street date: 12/12/13. This album is certainly remembered by most because of the presence of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, the perfect setting for Fontaine's exploration of free-verse poetry. Often arrhythmic and spoken, her vocals command the same spontaneity and grace that her collaborators applied to their instruments.
    Fontaine, Brigitte: S/T. Superior Viaduct (SV043). 07/08/14.
    Forest: Concert. Klint Records (MJJ340LP). Street date: 31/05/12. Recorded in May and October 1972 for BBC Radio 1 by DJ Bob Harris, these sessions may be all that remain of this seminal acid folk band's elusive third album!€15

    Franklin, Aretha: The First 12 Sides. Wax Love (WLV82003). Street date: 05-10-17. Beginning as a gospel singer, Franklin spent the early 60's recording in a variety of styles to varying success. While her other releases were overproduced and poppy, these very early recordings with the Ray Bryant group are beautiful jazz vocal stylings in the manner of Sarah Vaughan or Ella Fitzgerald. Beautifully recorded with no overdubs this is fantastic early 60's jazz and her voice is as perfect a fit for this material as it is for the soul she's famous for.
    Franklin, Aretha: The Gospel Soul Of. Rumble Records (RUM2011125LP). Street date: 26-05-16. Recorded at the age of 14, in 1956, under the direction of her father, Reverend C.L. Franklin, these gospel recordings of a teenaged Aretha Franklin are not just a sign of the brilliance to come, they are a force unto themselves. Like so many of the soul and R&B stars of the 50's and 60's, Aretha started out in the church and it was there that she made some of her most powerful and transcendental music.

    Free Jazz Workshop: Inter-Fréquences. Le Souffle Continu Records (ffl031 LP). Sept. 2017. Forerunner of what became known as Workshop de Lyon, the Free Jazz Workshop came into being in 1967 but their first album, Inter Fréquences, only appeared in 1973. Right from this first album it is clear that the group would function as a collective with no designated leader. The legacy and influence of American free jazz can be heard throughout: Albert and Don Ayler, or Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry for the horns of Maurice Merle and Jean Mereu; Cecil Taylor for the pianist Patrick Vollat, absent from the group after the second album La Chasse de Shirah Sharibad; Gary Peacock and Barre Phillips for the bass; Sunny Murray or Milford Graves for the rhythmic agitation; but also the Art Ensemble of Chicago for the collective aspect. First ever vinyl reissue of this classic recording, limited to 700 copies with Obi strip, reverse printing, 12 page booklet

    Frizzi, Fabio: Shark Rosso nell'Oceano. Beat (DDJLP02DLX). Street date: 21-06-19. 180 gr. black vinyl edition. Directed by Lamberto Bava in 1984, Shark Rosso nell'Oceano marks one of two collaborations between the director and musician (the other being Blastfighter, released the same year). It's an aquatic monster movie, a spin-off of the most popular adventure/horror movies from the other side of the ocean, dedicated to the ancestral fight between man and shark, the latter portrayed in a more horrific and evolved, almost alien, shape. The score presents a real treat for all fans of the Maestro and 80's electronic/synth sounds, never before released and now available thanks to the miraculous discovery in an old archive of a multitrack master tape featuring the original recording session on separate channels. Thanks to an accurate restoration and new mix by Alessio Contorni at Octopus studios (supervised by Maestro Frizzi), it was possible to produce an LP featuring the score of this rare soundtrack, yet another example of the fascinating compositional style of the Maestro during the period (including Zombie Flesh Eaters, The Beyond, City of the Living Dead, etc.), music which has become iconic in the collective consciousness of horror and thriller music lovers. Fuchsia: S/T. Klimt Records (MJJ355CP). August 2016. Limited edition of 500 copies on 180 gram pink vinyl LP with 3 bonus tracks.
    Fuchsia: S/T. Klimt Records (MJJ355LP). Feb. 2013. LP reissue with printed inner sleeve and 3 bonus tracks. Fuchsia's 1971 LP is a lost gem of experimental British progressive rock (in the vein of Henry Cow and Comus); the band was short lived and soon dissolved, but not before recording a few tracks intended for release on a second album (represented in the 3 bonus tracks found here) that unfortunately never materialized. €16

    Gale, Eddie: Black Rhythm Happening. 4 Men With Beards. Gatefold LP (180 g vinyl).
    This second Blue Note album includes jazz heavy weight Elvin Jones on drums and sax man Jimmy Lyons.

Eddie Gale helped ring in jazz's controversial new thing during the 1960s and 1970s on a series of influential releases.

    Gibson, Jon: Two Solo Pieces. Superior Viaduct (SV069). Street date: 23-03-17. As its unadorned title suggests, Two Solo Pieces consists of a pair of side-long tracks featuring the composer alone.

    Gilberto, João: Chega De Saudade. Wax Love (WLV82094). Street date: 21-06-18. After the ACV Doxy reissue, here's a new one .... rehash with nothing more, maybe even less than the previous!

    Goblin: Live 1978. AMSLP126. Street date: 11-11-16. Recorded on May 25th 1978, the show presented here was the real penultimate one for Goblin in one of their most classic line-ups: Massimo Morante (guitar, vocals), Claudio Simonetti (keyboards), Fabio Pignatelli (bass guitar), Agostino Marangolo (drums), with guest musician Antonio Marangolo on saxophone. Goblin were invited to participate to the MIMS (Mercato Internazionale Musica e Spettacolo - International Music and Entertainment Market) in Sanremo, a 7-day happening especially made for musicians and music businessmen. The band's show consists of the "Profondo Rosso / Deep Red" main theme, two tracks from "Roller" ("Aquaman" and "Snip Snap") and five from "Il Fantastico Viaggio dei Bagarozzo Mark", an Italian-sung LP (very uncommon for a band well known for their instrumental soundtrack efforts) that had just been released at the time.
    Goblin: Non Ho Sonno. AMS33LP. Street date: 05/05/11. After a lengthy silence, Goblin reunited in 2000, again for a soundtrack for their long-time friend Dario Argento..

Brian May! - for the Italian movie market. The result is a mix of old songs chosen and added by the Cinevox Record label and new selections, strongly influenced by Alan Parsons Project.
    Goblin: Phenomena. AMS (AMS76LP). Sept. 2014. The LP comes in gatefold format, attached with a 30x60cm poster! A fragmentary score - the original score was a mix of songs also including other artists - that in this reissue makes sense now, as it focuses solely on the production signed by the two original Goblin members, Fabio Pignatelli and Claudio Simonetti, with alternate versions included.
    Goblin: Profondo Rosso 35th Anniversary Edition (2010). AMS10LP. This reissue is a faithful reproduction of the very first pressing of 1975 and has 2 incredible extras: the vinyl is coloured with bloodsquirts and includes a fantastic oversized poster (66 cm x 66 cm) written by one of the biggest Goblin collectors.

    Goblin: Suspiria. AMSLP11. Special gimmick edition. 05/02/10. Made of the usual AMS heavy 180 Gr. high quality audiophile vinyl, this reissue features nearly the same pop-up system that was to be found on the original LP, where when removed from the outer sleeve, the inner sleeve unfolded to reveal a pop-up of Dario Argento's initials, decorated with the demonic Goblin logo and the dead ballerina poster art from Suspiria. On the reissue, this is the outer sleeve that will reveal its astounding secret as it was intended in the original project! €25
    Goblin: Tenebre. AMS 32 LP. 28/09/12. This reissue of the "Tenebre" OST vinyl follows the AMS Records tradition where a poster is attached to the LP replica, gathering informations for collectors about all the known exixting versions of the release, images of the discography and movie flyers and an essay presenting the filmand the soundtrack in detail. Not to be missed by any horror movie and soundtracks fans!
    Goblin: Volo. AMS LP91. Street date: 22-09-17. Like a few others in their discography, "Volo" is not a soundtrack, although its title track had been used as "Discoring" TV program opening theme. The band was led at that time by bassist Fabio Pignatelli and keyboardist Maurizio Guarini, together with Marco Rinalduzzi (guitar), Derek Wilson (drummer) and Mauro Lusini (vocals). This record is essentially a pop music album, wisely arranged and produced, featuring among others Antonio Marangolo on saxophone and Walter Martino on drums, who's mostly known to Goblin fans for having played on "Profondo Rosso" and "Perchè si uccidono" by Reale Impero Britannico. This AMS release, faithful to the original one, is the first ever LP reissue in exactly 35 years!
    Goblin Rebirth: Alive. 2LP. Black Widow (BWR182LP). Street date: 06-02-16. Two members who played on various Goblin related albums as far back as the mid Seventies, Fabio Pignatelli (bass) and Agostino Marangolo (drums), are joined by guitarist Giacomo Anselmi and keyboard players Aidan Zammit and Danilo Cherni, and this all new band carries on in the fine tradition of Goblin past and present. The 2015 self-titled debut album "Goblin Rebirth" delivers the constant presence of ghostly organ, eerie piano and hard guitars, incorporating plenty of the gothic atmosphere the group is known for, as well as some exciting new and previously unexplored directions. (from ProgArchives.com). This is the entire recording of the 2011 concert in Roma including all famous and classic hits of Goblin plus some songs never played live before. There is a limited edition (100 copies) of the double LP in colored vinyl with textured cover + booklet + mousepad + poster with Goblin Family Tree

    Gopal, Sam: Escalator. Audio Clarity (ACL0042). Plays on 45 rpm! Street date: 03-07-20. Issued in small number on disc jockey Count Simon De La Bedoyere's shortlived B&C subsidiary, Stable Records, the album gives a glimpse into evolving oeuvre of Lemmy long (future Hawkwind and Motorhead main man) before his shift to heavy metal, the tablas in place of kit drumming grounding everything in a much more tranquil and contemplative space, though the guitarists certainly fire things up in places.
    Goraguer, Alain: La Planète Sauvage. Superior Viaduct (SV058). Street date: 11-04-20. As a Record Store Day 2020 Special, Alain Goraguer's hypnotic score for La Planète Sauvage is being repressed in a limited edition on translucent yellow vinyl.

Green on guitar was joined by Alex Dmochowski on bass, Godfrey Maclean on drums, Nick Buck on keyboards and British blues legend Zoot Money on piano. End of the Game stands as one of the great psychedelic Rock rituals of all times.
    Grimes Trio, Henry: Call. High Quality Vinyl. €12

    Gruppo D'alternativa: Ipotesi. AMS (AMS58 LP). Street date: 10-06-16. Rediscovered a few years ago and reissued in a now-deleted papersleeve CD version by AMS Records, "Ipotesi" is now released on LP, faithful as usual to the one originally published in 1972. Standing between a rock opera and a concept album, based on the death of a band's friend in a car accident, it is in fact an album with strong jazz-rock imprint which, in some circumstances, takes clear inspiration from the Miles Davis' fusion era of the late 60's and 70's.
    Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza: Eroina. Cometa Edizioni (CMT10024C). Street date: 10-01-20. Limited to 150 copies, pressed on clear and/or black vinyl. Eroina is a series of haunting improvisations - each one inspired by the effects of a different drug - made of whirling electronic glitches, skronky horns, pounded piano, funky drums and weird tape experiments delivering the best drone/spaced/drugged out free jazz performed by the legendary ensemble of Ennio Morricone, Mario Bertoncini, Egisto Macchi, Battisti D'Amario, Franco Evangelisti and Walter Bianchi. A timeless treasure!
    Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza: Gli Occhi Freddi Della Paura. Dagored (RED203). June 2014. The legendary avant garde and improvisational combo of which Morricone was a founding member was unconventionally used this time for the purpose of a film soundtrack from 1971. Limited edition of 500 copies.
    Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza: Musica Su Schemi. Superior Viaduct (SV 015). Jan. 2013. LP + digital download card. Founded in the early 70's, this was a collective of Italian composers that included Ennio Morricone on trumpet!!

    Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza: Nuova Consonanza. AMS (LPOST015). Reissue on 180 gram vinyl. Street date: 22-11-19. This LP was the only one published on the Cinevox Record label in 1975 and consists of 50 minutes of abstract music, indecipherable and devoid of any ordinary compositional structure. The collective included among other the iconic Ennio Morricone in a rather unusual role in this context! A very rare record that is practically impossible to find today, worth hundreds of euros on the collector's market, now reissued for the first time ever on vinyl!

    Guérin, Jean: Tacet. Souffle Continu Records (FFL009). August 2015. Highly surreal and wonderfully futuristic, "Tacet", one of the best kept secrets of the Futura catalogue is the soundtrack work of Jean Guérin for Claude Faraldo's anarchic film "BOF, anatomie d'un livreur". This avant-garde psychedelic jazz masterpiece is a blend of abstract vocals, unusual electronics, twisted sound envelopes and nervous brass instruments. Limited edition of 500 copies on black and 200 on solid grey vinyl. 350 gr. gatefold sleeve with Obi strip - Reverse Printing-.
    Gurdjieff, G.I.: Improvisations. Fantome Phonographique (OME1009). Street date: 20-09-18. Harmonium improvisations recorded in 1949 in Paris, just a short time before his death.

    Guru Guru: Live In Bremen, 12 September 1971. Lilith Dig-A-Log (LR331LP). 180 gr. LP + free CD of the album plus one bonus track. 16/02/12. This album, recorded live at Radio Bremen in 1971 features the 23 minutes long Der LSD Marsch from their debut album, UFO. Here Neumeier's superlative drumming is given center stage and one can hear why Mani has consistently earned such high praise. The remaining two songs come from their second album (1971's Hinten): the 22-minute extended prog tribute to "Bo Diddley" and the aptly titled "Space Ship", an extensive sonic trip of 15+ minutes(!), only found on the bonus CD

By the time this album was recorded, bassist Uli Trepte had left the band to play with Neu! and Faust and was replaced with Bruno Schaab of Night Sun (the stellar German prog metal band). This early live album, recorded in front of a crowd of dedicated fans, is essential listening, featuring two extended tracks, the 28-minute "Oxymoron" and the 23-minute Guru Guru classic "Baby Cake Walk". €16
    Guru Guru: Live in Wiesbaden 1972 / 1973. B13 (B164). Street date: 23/08/12. Format:140 gram LP on clear red vinyl with white label in PVC sleeve with black lettering (limited edition 500 copies).

    Hammarström, Erik: Glödhet Rytmisk Svärta. AMS (AMSLP149). Street date: 28-06-19. Erik is now a long-time official Änglagård drummer and percussionist, also part of the recently born All Traps on Earth. With this - his solo debut record - we are facing an extremely intricate and dynamic rhythmic texture, the result of years of study, evolution and practice of the musical instrument, combined with chamber music scores that make Erik's work seem much easier than it actually is. Jazz-rock, avant-garde and classical music merge here in a sonic brew that, for attitude and originality, recalls the most courageous experiments released by the ECM label. The album consists of two long suites, both divided into different movements: a 34-minute title-track, and the shortest 15-minute "Iskallt Mörkt Vatten", in which Erik plays all the percussion and electric bass, accompanied by bows, brass, clarinet, flute, celesta, harp and bassoon. 180gr. black vinyl edition with gatefold sleeve and 59x30cm insert.

Formed in the early seventies by Hans-Joachim Roedelius & Dieter Moebius of Cluster with Michael Rother of Neu!. Although this Kraut rock supergroup produced only two albums, their minimalist sound laid the groundwork for ambient and motorik rock for decades to come.

    Harmonia: Musik Von Harmonia. Lilith Dig-A-Log LP+CD (LR355LP). Feb. 2013. 180 Gr. vinyl gatefold LP with bonus CD on one package! €17
    Harper, Billy: Black Saint. Our Swimmer (WELLE107). Street date: 05-05-21. Billy Harper is one of the great tenor saxophonists in the post-Coltrane mold. Recorded in 1975, Black Saint was his second album as bandleader and one of the most acclaimed and fully realized of his long career. Too melodic and swinging to be free jazz but too forward-thinking to be described as modal post-bop, here is a beautiful album, back in print on its original format for the first time in over 40 years!
    Harriott, Joe / Amancio d'Silva Quartet: Hum Dono. Zaq (zaq124). 01/12/14. A collaboration of British Joe Harriott with the Goa, India-born Amancio d'Silva. This came after the recordings with John Mayer wherein Harriott would move into world music - long before that genre was coined - and develop his own brand of East-West fusion, using Western as well as Eastern instruments. Here the fusion continues in perhaps a slightly more subtle fashion. D'Silva draws upon the jazz guitar tradition of Django Reinhardt, Charlie Christian and Wes Montgomery.
    Joe Harriott Quintet And Sextet: Southern Horizons. Down at Dawn (DAD146). Street date: 27-03-20. This is Harriott on the verge of the free form/abstract period, but here, still anchored in the hard bop mode. The album sticks to the quintet line-up of sax, trumpet, piano, bass and drums, spiced up on a couple of tracks with a bongo player.
    Harris, Eddie: Bossa Nova. Alternative Fox (FOX016). Street date: 04-10-19. The stellar backing is led by pianist Lalo Schifrin and features among other guitarist Jimmy Raney, allowing Harris all the space he needs, yet never playing mere filler behind him, bass player Art Davis.

    Hedvig Mollestad Trio: Evil In Oslo. Rune Grammofon 2LP (RLP2184). Street date: 03-06-16. Recorded at Oslo clubs John Dee and Buckley´s, "Evil In Oslo" is simply a kick ass live album with a very high level of musicianship and a perfect balance between freedom and discipline. While the nine live performances presented here all come from the trio's first three studio albums, most are lenghty workouts, again showing Hedvig as a very confident and accomplished solo guitarist.

    Humana Prog: Fiori Frutti Farfalle. AMS (AMSLP140). Street date: December 2019. Pressed on 180 gr. black vinyl and printed with gatefold cover.

The second part features six additional tracks (all written by Farina and unreleased until 2014) recorded in the summer of 2013, following the discovery of an old audiotape recorded in '73 with some of his fellow musicians and friends, containing a 16-minute demo track piece that was subsequently reworked and rearranged for the present album. The closing song "La Ballata Degli Amici Perduti" also features a string quartet. Musically it is a wonderful and pastoral prog album, dreamy, elegant, and directly linked to the Italian tradition of the seventies, reminding names like Celeste, Locanda delle Fate, Pierrot Lunaire.

    Hyman, Dick / Mayo, Mary: Moon Gas. Alternative Fox( FOX025). Steet date: 31-01-20. An early experimenter with electronic instruments, including the Moog, Hyman's 1963 rarity Moon Gas, produced by Creed Taylor and recorded with Sinatra sidekick and Broadway musical mainstay Mary Mayo, was conceived as "a glimpse of the possible sounds of the 22nd Century". Blasting lounge music and love ballads into the nether regions of outer space, Moon Gas pitted Hyman's organ, mini-organ and piano riffs against Mayo's ethereal voice - sometimes singing wordlessly, other times with actual lyrics atop a tight studio ensemble - the sounds made more otherworldly through the use of an ondioline, a martinot, oscillators and Vinnie Bell's customised guitar, which allowed for individualised sound effects.

    I.P. Son Group: S/T. Black Sweat (BS025). Oct. 2016. Appeared in 1975 on the legendary Ultima Spiaggia label during the mature stage of the Italian underground scene, the only album of the milanese band led by guitarist Marco Rossi looks like an experiment rather atypical of that period. The typical jazz sound of bands such Perigeo or Napoli Centrale, leave here considerable field for improvisation and suggestions of non-european ethnic flavor, enhanced by the masterful rhythm section (without drums) curated by the African percussionists Nick Eyok and Mohammed El Targhi. The result was a complex work full of nuances, in which the spirit of the free-jam is an excellent synthesis of influences and visions. Refined guitar riffs reveal strong blues roots that can blend with the elements and moods of the most markedly spiritual and exotic free-jazz (Pharoah Sanders, Alice Coltrane or Shepp), while the winds are perfumed of a Middle East flow as distant echoes, with ideas of tribal rhythms that seem to draw both from the Northern Sahara as from more Afro-beat rituals of Yoruba ancestry. In the background persists a poetic intercultural exchange that brings the I.P. Son Group to parallel projects such as those made by Aktuala, Arica or John Berberian. Comes with a large format booklet!

    Indianizer : Nadir (IND05). Nov. 2020. Indianizer are an Italian band formed in Turin, Italy in 2015. They play psych-tropical-beat incorporating influences from psychedelic music, electronic music, world music and kraut rock. Nadir, their third full-length release, is the conclusive step of a spontaneous and undeclared trilogy. Dark visions and melancholic atmospheres permeate the entire album and concerning its nature, world rhythms are still the focus of Indianizer's new music, moving to a middle Eastern disco attitude without setting aside South-American and African vibes. The raw sound is the result of a mix between tape recorded live sessions and digital recorded overdubs. Nadir is an album thought for live shows and born aboard dancefloors. Lyrics and songs came out quickly, baptized during several performances all over Europe. Indeed it embraces three languages: English, Spanish and Creole, mixed together sometimes to create a new linguistic space.

    It - Viaje : Musica Electronica Libre. Survival Research (SVVRCH004). Street date: 14-06-19. Cult, obscure 1976 proto-electronics masterpiece 'Viaje' is a purely brain frying avant garde flipout from the electroacoustic musicians Eduardo Polonio and Horacio Vaggione (probably most known for his album on Cramps). Together, they deploy synths, electric guitars, organs and bass and squash them all up together in sundry sense befouling ways. On the A side, they're tangled into an overpowering threshing machine of spitting electronic mayhem, while the B side moves the proceedings into overtly acidy territory, everything ratcheting down and expanding outward into a delirious psychedelic electronic whirlpool. Beautiful gatefold vinyl reproducing the original artwork.

Unfortunately, the film itself was not ready for release then, since it was the subject of a dispute between Bridges and the movie studio that had financed it, the result being re-shooting and reediting, such that the film did not open until March 1984, by which time it had a score by John Barry and only a little of Jackson's music remaining!
    Jackson, Milt: Vibrations. DOL (DOL994HG). Street date: 31-05-18. 180 gram gatefold LP

    Jacula: Pre Viam. Black Widow (BWR 135 LP). June 2011.

Considered as the first piece of electronic music to accompany a ballet, Totentanz is the arrestingly abstract and mightily expressive result of Warner Jepson's experiments with tape and Don Buchla's groundbreaking synthesizer, the Buchla 100. Totentanz was originally self-released in 1972

This is the less academic and more twisted take on British progressive, a truly massive experience.

    Kraftwerk: Live at Tribal Gathering, Luton, England on 24th May 1997. It seems that the ghost label DBQP has nothing else to offer than "tricks of the hat", systematically resurrecting previous releases on the now defunct label B13, probably stopped by law and court because of its illegal nature! So if you like meaningless rehash, this is the right place!

    Kundalinî Shakti Devî: S/T. AMS (AMS LP 64). Street date: 30-06-18. A mysterious group from Lombardy assembled in 1974 by saxophonist Roberto Puddu to record some of his compositions. The recordings remained hidden and unreleased until 2013 and show a good quality in composition and originality despite the lack of production and some influences by the classic English groups of the early 70's, with Italian lyrics.
    Laboratorio Della Quercia: S/T. 2LP Alternative Fox (FOX023). Street date: 31-01-20. In the summer of 1978, an ambitious twelve-day experimental jazz project was undertaken at the ancient amphitheatre Tasso della Quercia in Rome. The idea was to assemble the leading players from Italy's avante-garde jazz scene, revolving around members of Grande Elenco Musicisti (or GEM), such as saxophonists Tommaso Vittorini, Eugenio Colombo and Maurizio Giammarco, trumpeter Alberto Corvini and trombonist/composer Danilo Terenzi, together with visiting American players such as saxophonists Steve Lacy, Steve Potts, or trombonist Roswell Rudd, British saxophonist Evan Parker, pianist Frederick Rzewski and drummer Noel McGhee, among others. Different group configurations were enacted each day and the final gala concert formed the basis of this super rare and highly playful double album, which captures the delightfully messy proceedings. In keeping with the openness of the Roman jazz scene of the day, the project sought to push the boundaries, aiming to break big-band traditions whilst still emphasizing the collective nature of the experience. Enrico Rava's opening "Tromblues" emphasizes the disparate approaches of these trans-Atlantic teams and Terenzi's "Dialogando" uses dual trombones to heighten musical discord; in mutated big-band mode, Giammarco's thrillingly complex "Vortex Waltz" and Vittorini's "La Legge E Uguale Per Tutti" both speak to the limitless potential that the project was aiming at.
    Lacy / Curran / Rzewski: Threads. Alternative Fox (FOX021). Street date: 22-11-19.

    Lacy, Steve: Reflections. Jeanne Dielmann (JD125). Street date: 12-07-18. Glorious quartet session with Lacy on soprano sax, accompanied by the great Mal Waldron on piano, as worthy a pianist to take on the tunes of Monk as one could imagine, along with Buell Neidlinger on bass, and the amazing Elvin Jones on the trap kit. Though it's only Lacy's second recording as a leader, his maturity and range are well on display here as he re-imagines 7 of Monk's beautiful tunes as his own.

Recorded in 1957 and released on the Prestige label, "Sound of Yusef" features Lateef's quintet with Wilbur Harden on flugelhorn, Hugh Lawson on piano, Ernie Farrow on bass and Oliver Jackson on drums. If compared to later works, "Sounds of Yusef" is still very much rooted in Jazz while the use of traditional ethnic instruments adds colors and flavors without really deviating from the American Jazz tradition.
    Lateef, Yusef: The Centaur And The Phoenix. Cornbread (CRNBR16053). Street date: 13-09-18. 180 gram vinyl reissue.

    Liguori, Gaetano: Collective Orchestra. Black Sweat (BS030LP). Oct. 2016. The Collective Orchestra was a visionary, short-living creative music collective led by Gaetano Liguori, who was one of the main protagonists of Italian free jazz since the early 70s. It was an important attempt to put together young musicians from the two main towns in Italy, and its respective leading figures: Giorgio Gaslini in Milan and Mario Schiano in Rome. The near-telepathic interplay of the core set of Liguori on piano, Roberto Bellatalla on double bass, Filippo Monico on drums, Guido Mazzon on trumpet, and young musicians Edoardo Ricci, Giancarlo Maurino and Massimo Urbani on soprano and alto saxophones, is given a richly expanded sound palette by the addition of Danilo Terenzi on trombone, Roberto Del Piano on Fender bass and Sandro Cesaroni on flute. The sound is strong and freely exploratory, at a level that is completely fresh and very striking, and handled here with a wonderful balance between playful arrangements and fierce improvisations.

Part of a generation of artists who contributed to a radical rethinking of musical practices and composition, they reveal Minimalism as it's rarely known: delicate melodies, subtle harmonic interplay, incorporating diverse creative traditions and slowly giving way to an ever-expanding open space.

It's also part of a reissues serie of extremely rare library music LP's published between late 60's and early 70's, most of which have never been released again until today, finally made available again for collectors and sonorization music lovers.
    Mad Fellaz: III (MAD4LP). February 2019. Mad Fellaz's third album can be considered as the 'most progressive' among the works of the band, more mature and elaborated than the others, but enjoyable, free-flowing and fresh at the same time. These innovations are surely brought by new powerful male lead vocals and the adding of orchestral elements (violins, viola, cello, french horn, oboe) to the many main instrument lines.

There is an open and high spirited approach to the music. Clear melodies and open improvisations, melting together in an organic and natural way.

    Milesi, Piero / Bacalov, Daniel: La Camera Astratta. Soave (SV21). Street date: 13-09-18. Limited edition, with an insert full of photos and information. A presentation of immersion in a dimension devoid of gravity, concerning a soft, ethereal, articulated and perfectly interpenetrated reality. It's an evocative ambient soundtrack, with rhythmic cadences, soft and repetitive, full of airiness; the music expresses the scenic aims and investigates and reproduces their sensations, marking the engendering of silences and melting moments of higher performing tension. The general architecture reaches a balanced combination between the whispering power of the voices, the electronic modulations, the rhythmic inserts and the aquatic and biological samples; each of those elements analyze the narrative intention of an almost microcosmic-embryonic exploration of the inner space-body. A creative music work of which the stylistic form proves persuasive for its possible fabulous nocturnal suggestions and for its vibrational quality that concerns psychophysical involvement; a calm meditative experience that invites us to quietness and to the fading union of something that was previously split and broken within us.

    Mobley, Hank: Workout. Wax Love (WLV82118). Street date: 28-03-19.
    Mo.Do.: La Scimmia sulla Schiena del Re. AMS (AMS 116LP). Street date: 27-05-16. The album, almost entirely instrumental - probably only known to the Italian progressive rock 'aficionados' for Walter Locatelli's presence on drums, a former Dalton member - consists of eight tracks for about 35 minutes, mainly divided among acoustic sensations, slow atmospheric moments and more sustained and complex ones, mostly recalling of PFM and Gentle Giant. Originally released in 1980, the LP is not affected at all by the 'synthetic' influences, which were very popular at the time; indeed it recovers a progressive 'classical tradition' that was practically lost in those years, a choice that unfortunately will soon lead the group to be ignored and to consequently split up.

This is an original and experimental album, with a peculiar and epic catchiness, tied to Piero Umiliani's masterful use of synthesizers and great experience in the field of soundtracks. Also available on a simple black vinyl edition (RED303)
    Mollestad, Hedvig: Ekhidna. Rune Grammofon. Black vinyl (RLP3215) or limited edition on white vinyl (RLP3215LTD). Street date: 12-06-20. In May 2018 Hedvig received an invitation from Vossajazz - the much loved annual festival established in 1973 - to write the commission work for 2019. This came at the right time, she had been thinking about writing for a bigger group than the trio, and this would be a good opportunity. To make it suitable for album release the full festival version was edited, sharpened and recorded from scratch in Amper Tone studio in Oslo. In addition to Hedvig on guitar, the line-up includes powerhouse drummer Torstein Lofthus (Elephant9) and percussionist Ole Mofjell, the youngest member, but with solid experience from the European improvisation scene. Keyboard duties are handled by Marte Eberson (daughter of iconic guitarist Jon Eberson) and Erlend Slettevoll (The Core and supergroup Grand General. On trumpet we'll find Susana Santos Silva, whom Hedvig first met in Mats Gustafsson´s NU-ensemble. Ekhidna is a figure from Greek mythology; half woman, half snake. Hevig is keen to stress that it´s not a concept album as such, but loosely tied to themes of human struggle and being a mother in times when our increasing inability to live in harmony with nature paints a bleak picture.

Musica Elettronica Viva was formed in 1966 by a group of American composers in Rome, its nucleus comprised of pianist Frederic Rzewski, sound improviser Alvin Curran and the improvisatory keyboardist Richard Teitelbaum.

An abortive US tour in 1970 split MEV into three units, but the band later reformed for this album with Rzewski, Curran and Teitelbaum joined by saxophonist Steve Lacy, trombonist Garrett List and keyboardist Karl Berger. The resultant double album United Patchwork, recorded in November 1977 at Mama Dog for Horo Records, captures MEV in all of their discordant, improvisatory glory!

The stellar frontline of Don Cherry, Archie Shepp, and John Tchicai all being relative newcomers at the time.

    Nico: Live In Tokyo 1986. Radiation Reissues (RRSCV002). Featuring a backing band that includes synthesizer, conga drums, and more, this dark, smoky concert feels like proto-cold-wave and though 30+ years old could easily fit into the indie zeitgeist of today.

    Nicolai, Bruno: Espressioni. Loneos (LON001LP/ LON001LP-COL). Street date: 31-01-20. Limited edition available on 180 gram black vinyl + Obi, (400 copies) and clear vinyl + Obi + printed slipcase and handwritten notes (100 copies). Originally released in 1972 for the sought after Gemelli imprint, Espressioni was credited to longtime Ennio Morricone partner and conspirator Bruno Nicolai, one of the most influential Italian composers in the heyday of film music and modern composition. The maestro Morricone shows his persona between the folds of the record as well, revealing a common sense for obscure leanings in the tradition of avant-garde jazz and classic contemporary. The many faces of the two composers are fully in charge through the 9 episodes of the release, such a chronological history akin to the common area of Italian psycho drama and cultish noir-exploitation short movies.
    Nicolai, Bruno: Indio Black (Adios Sabata). Dagored (RED248). Street date: 08-03-18. Limited edition of 500 copies pressed on orange vinyl.

    Ohno, Matsuo: Roots Of Electronic Sound. Survival Research (SVVRCH005). Street date: 23-08-19. Limited edition of 500 copies with insert. Futuristic synthesizer specialist and sound designer Matsuo Ohno was responsible for the sound design of a broad range of film, television and radio soundtracks, most famously the animation series Astro Boy, which he began working on in 1963. The electronic abstractions of Karlheinz Stockhausen and left-wing filmmaker Fumio Kamei were some of his early influences. The five suites of tracks that make up the present album were recorded between 1963 and 1966; initially released on the ALM label in 1975, the album is comprised of brief tape experiments, the cover artwork fittingly representing Astro Boy, from which many of the audio interludes are taken.

    Oram, Daphne / Gray, Vera: Listen Move And Dance. Fantôme Phonographique (OME1023). Street date: 20-08-19. The British composer, musician and audio engineer Daphne Oram was a pioneering figure in the use of electronic music, coming to prominence through her work with the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, which she co-founded. The Listen Move And Dance series of BBC programmes were devised as a radical new technique to help British schoolchildren learn how to dance; on the LP releases, Vera Gray arranged short adaptations of classical pieces by Bartok, Stravinsky, Shostakovich and others, designed for stamping, punching, kicking and jumping movements, as well as running lightly, dancing on toes and shaking all about, which contrasted sharply with Oram's electronic abstractions, which seemed to have been beamed in from outer space.
    Orchestra Cometa: Daydream. Cometa Edizioni (CMT8C). Street date: 10-01-20. Limited to 150 copies, pressed on clear vinyl. One of the coolest albums ever from the legendary Cometa sound library, with sweet Fender Rhodes at some points, jazzy reeds at others, and even some more evocative passages that almost have a deeper soundtrack vibe but soon return to the kind of tight, funky numbers that we love so much in Italian sound library material from this time!

    Os Mutantes: Mutantes. Vinyl Lovers (900211). Street date: 13-01-20. Similar to its predecessor (and debut album), Mutantes -from 1969 - relies on an atmosphere of experimentation and continual musical collisions, walking a fine line between innovation and pointless genre exercises.
    Os Mutantes: S/T. Lilith Dig-A-Log LR336LP. 23/02/12. 180 gr. LP + free CD of the album. With the release of their debut LP in 1968, Os Mutantes cracked the already red hot Tropicalia scene wide open.

Produced by the audacious Jef Gilson, the appropriately named No Man's Land had virtually no equivalent in France (nor worldwide) when it came out in 1976.

Recorded live at the Donaueschingen Music Festival on October 17, 1971, Actions features a truly mind-bending confluence of musicians of the avant-garde, in the broadest sense of the term. Don Cherry - the brilliant American free jazz trumpeter - had recently expatriated to Sweden and was finding his way not only among the emerging free-jazz scene of Europe but also within his own constantly expanding musical palette that had begun to incorporate elements of African rhythms, Turkish folk idioms, and Indian classical music. Cherry, in collaboration here with Krzysztof Penderecki - one of Poland's greatest modern composers - perhaps best known to casual audiences for the use of his music in The Exorcist, The Shining - creates a sonic landscape previously unrivaled in his work. Combining modern classical and avant-garde elements, choral arrangements, and a large free jazz ensemble - The New Eternal Rhythm Orchestra, formed specifically for this performance and featuring a veritable who's who of the European scene including Peter Brötzmann, Han Bennink, Terje Rypdal, Albert Mangelsdorff, and Gunter Hampel. Actions is one of the most expansive sets of Cherry's storied career.
    Pepper, Art: Intensity. Doxy ACV (ACV2069). Street date: 25-07-16. Numbered first press of 500 copies.
    Perception: Mestari. Le Souffle Continu (ffl053). Oct. 2019. Reissue of the 3rd and final album, remastered from the master tapes and including a 4 page booklet with unpublished photos + an essay by Didier Levallet. The album was also seeing the band return to its original quartet format.
    Perception: Perception & Friends. Le Souffle Continu (ffl052). Oct. 2019. Reissue of the 2nd self-produced album, originally released on Levallet's label A.D.M.I. (Association pour le Dévelopement des Musiques Improvisées. As the album was entirely created from A to Z by Perception, they decided on a more ambitious project, exploring a wider palette of colours by augmenting the original quartet with additional instruments. So, it was with numerous guests including Teddy Lasry, Jean-Charles Capon, Kent Carter and bass player Jean-François Jenny-Clark, that Perception developed still further the apparently contradictory directions which were their specificity. This is further highlighted by the fact that Siegfried Kessler, largely absent on this recording, is temporarily replaced by Manuel Villaroel, a pianist from Chile with a completely different temperament. This album also would seem to predict the different directions that musicians from Perception would subsequently take individually, Swing Strings System for Levallet or the more structured Neffesh Music for Seffer.
    Perception: S/T. Le Souffle Continu (ffl051). Oct. 2019. First ever vinyl reissue, remastered from the master tapes. Includes a 4 page booklet with unpublished photos + an essay by Didier Levallet. Debut album by a band including musicians of different origins (Hungarian for saxophonist Yochk'O Seffer, German for pianist Siegfried Kessler, French for bassist Didier Levallet, Franco-Vietnamese for drummer Jean-My Truong) and backgrounds (classical academic training for the first two, an improvised apprenticeship on the jazz scene for the third). The music offers a lyrically incandescent free jazz, made up of startling interactions between complex harmonies and disjointed rhythms.

    Perrey, Jean-Jacques: Prélude Au Sommeil. Fantome Phonographique (OME1003). Street date: 14-06-18. Limited edition clear vinyl repress of 300 copies. Jean-Jacques Perrey was one of the earliest innovators in electronic music, creating a body of work spanning decades that has influenced everyone from Eno to The Beastie Boys. One of the pioneers of musique concrète and electronic tape manipulation, Prélude Au Sommeil (Prelude to Sleep) is Perrey's debut recording but shows a composer already at maturity. Originally released at the end of the fifties, as a private press under the fake institutional name "Institut Dormiphone", Prélude au Sommeil consisted of 2 side-long tracks played on the Ondioline (George Jenny's 1941 vacuum-tube based, spring-loaded electronic instrument). The music contained in this mysterious vinyl is like something between dreamy church organ hymns and the keyboard-based minimalism that Philip Glass and Terry Riley developed a decade later.
    Perry, Lee: Excaliburman. Studio 16 (BLACKARKLP3). Street date: 15-02-18. Long out of print compilation from the late 80s featuring various rare roots tracks recorded at Lee Perry's studio The Black Ark between 1973-1978, featuring rare dubs to "Curly Locks" plus vocals by Jackie Bernard, Jack Lord, Debra Keese, Jah T and others.

Congo meets Jamaica on this exceptional reggae album from the late seventies. This debut album by Seskain Molenga and Kalo Kawongolo remains a unique slice of musical ingenuity, an intoxicating sonic storm that resulted from their temporary presence at the magical space of the Black Ark.
    Petri & Pettersson Brass / Magyar: Pop-Liisa 17. Svart Records. Street date: 09-03-18. Black or bone-white vinyl (limited to 200 copies). In February 1973 Yle's Pop Liisa show was visited by two bands. Petri & Pettersson Brass performed soulful big band rock music whereas Magyar inhabited the same beautiful psychedelic universe of childlike innocence and beauty that artists like Pekka Streng stemmed from. Both sets feature material not available on the bands' official studio recordings.

    Philippe Doray & Les Asociaux Associes: Nouveaux Modes Industriels. Le Souffle Continu (ffl059). Street date: 21-02-20. Originally released in 1980 on Invisible, the label of the Société Coopérative d'Ouvriers-Producteurs Artistiques (S.C.O.P.A., the Cooperative Society of Artistic Worker/Producers,TN), this 2nd album gathers new works recorded in Doray's farm between May 1978 and January 1980. Never forgetting his interest for dance, Doray lets loose one last time, with his Asociaux Associés, his anguished poetry. He gets Cluster moving to a boogaloo, foments a Suicide on synthetic jaw harp or invents elevator music for tower blocks ...
    Philippe Doray & Les Asociaux Associes: Ramasse Miettes Nucléaires. Le Souffle Continu (ffl058). Street date: 21-02-20. First of the two albums by obscure French band, recorded in 1976. On synthesiser, Doray fires off his disturbing poetry over psychedelic pop, voodoo rock, off-kilter krautrock, approximate swing. But if the music is iconoclastic (bringing to mind as much Hendrix as Areski, Ash Ra Tempel or Berrocal), one thing is certain: Ramasse-Miettes Nucléaires is one of the best albums of obscure experimental song ever recorded.
    Pholas Dactylus: Hieros Gamos. AMS (AMSLP 150). Street date: 07-06-19. Of all the recent Italian prog comebacks, Pholas Dactylus' return is certainly the most unexpected. Forty five years after "Concerto delle Menti", "Hieros Gamos" ('sacred wedding' in Greek language) marks one of the most resounding rebirths for a band that everyone believed to be lost forever. The album is divided into two parts: one that bears the album title and consists of a 22 mns. long suite, composed by pianist Maurizio Pancotti - it also once again features Paolo Carelli and his iconic reciting voice - and a second that is instead a collection of short individual compositions, signed by the three original musicians still operative today (Maurizio Pancotti, Paolo Carelli, Rinaldo Linati). LP edition with gatefold cover and A4 insert with lyrics, pressed on black 180 gram vinyl.
    Pholas Dactylus: Concerto Delle Menti. AMS (AMSLP117). Street date: 06-04-18. Tthe first edition of 500 copies comes in clear blue vinyl, and includes a 60x90cm reproduction of a wonderful original poster of that era! Not to be missed!

    Picchio Dal Pozzo: Abbiamo Tutti i Suoi Problemi. Recommended Records (RERPDPV). Street date: 23-06-16. Reissue on 180 gr. vinyl.
    Picchio Dal Pozzo: S/T. Goodfellas (GFPDP1LP) 180 gr. vinyl. Street date: 07-04-16. Reissue. Picchio Dal Pozzo can be considered as the definitive Canterbury inspired band, coming from Italy's 1970 progressive rock scene. Their 1976 debut album shows an incredibly rich sound tapestry, made out of some peculiar ingredients. Oblique tunes and liquid harmonies, airy flutes, crispy horns, loads of electric piano and fuzz bass, drops of jazz, pop romanticism, waves of minimalism and deep pataaphysical vocals and lyrics.
    Piccioni, Piero: Cadaveri Eccellenti. Dagored (RED243). Street date: 24-08-17. Jazz and funky tunes are mixed here with a big orchestra-style peculiar of the best composition by the maestro Piero Piccioni; this album is an enjoyable journey into dark and light atmospheres. First time complete version on vinyl, limited edition of 500 copies.
    Piccioni, Piero: Il Diavolo. WHP (WHP1442). Street date: 18-09-20. This soundtrack written by Maestro Piero Piccioni alternates orchestral songs with a romantic flavor, swing era jazz and lounge sketches with a samba twist. Reissued for the first time on vinyl since its release in 1963, the album represents a perfect compendium of Piccioni's style of the early 60's and one of the first peaks of the collaboration with Sordi and Sonego, an artistic and human partnership that was built to last!
    Piccioni, Piero: Il Dio Sotto La Pelle. 2LP Musica Per Immagini (MPI-LP002). Street date: 07-02-20. One of the best Piccioni's contributions to the 7th art, was released for the first time long time ago (2000), quickly becoming one of the most sought after records by many collectors and fans. This renewed edition offers tracks remastered from first generation master tapes by Claudio Fuiano and sequenced by Lorenzo Fabrizi, also including twelve unreleased gems, new graphics inspired by the original posters and designed by Luca Barcellona and Marco Ferretti's liner notes. This was a period of great creativity crossed by Italian composers who were capable of filtering their traditional and classical action with some rock elements.
    Pickett, Wilson: Hey Jude. 4 Men with Beards (4M2442LP). Street date: 24-05-18. Featuring Duane Allman, who added his intense, bluesy guitar to the mix, this album of hard Southern soul is here reissued as limited edition on green vinyl with tip on jacket

    Pike, Dave: Bossa Nova Carnival. Honeypie (HONEY002). Street date: 29-05-20. Recorded and released in 1962 on the New jazz Label, this album sounds like a perfect combination of Brazilian sensuous flavor and swing jazz sensibility. Besides Pike on vibraphone and marimba, we find Clark Terry on flugelhorn, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Chris White on bass, Rudy Collins on drums and Jose Paulo on cabasa and banderol
    Pinhas, Richard: Iceland. Superior Viaduct (SV053). Steet date: 31-01-19. 3-sided 2LP reissue. Originally released in 1979, this was Richard Pinhas' third solo album and his first following the breakup of Heldon. While moving away from the maximalism of his old band, paring down Heldon's hybrid of otherworldly sci-fi imagery and pummeling psych-prog riffs, the journey through Iceland is decidedly more inward. Consisting of longer, brooding synth-based pieces as well as short proto-industrial études and interstitial sketches, Iceland features Pinhas' delay-ridden electric guitar, pulsating machine rhythms and analog synthesizer washes all vivid in texture and timbre, notwithstanding an undeniably chilling ambience. This first-time vinyl reissue includes Wintermusic, an immersive 25-minute bonus track recorded in 1983 and appearing here on vinyl for the first time.
    Pinhas, Richard & Livengood, John: Cyborg Sally. Souffle Continu (FFL18). Planned for release for the Record Store Day on April 16, 2016. 1000 copies in solid red vinyl - 350g Gatefold Sleeve - Matt Finish.

This impressive work, the result of a two year collaboration with John Livengood (Red Noise / Spacecraft), achieves new summits of sophistication and maturity in the fields of electronic music. First time vinyl edition under licence from Richard Pinhas. No repress!

    Pio, Giusto: Motore Immobile. Soave (SV01). Street date: 02-03-17. One of the most striking documents of Italy's minimalist movement, produced by Franco Battiato in 1979, at the outset of a long and fruitful period of collaboration between the two composers, and originally released on the legendary Cramps Records, "Motore Immobile" now sits within a reappraisal of a large neglected body of efforts made by the Italian avant-garde during the second half of the 70's and early 80's. It is singular, but not alone. It resonates within a collective world of shimmering sound, one familiar to fans of Battiato, Lino Capra Vaccina, Luciano Cilio, Roberto Cacciapaglia, Francesco Messina and Raul Lovisoni.

On the 4th october 2007 Porcupine Tree showed up for an in-store performance and signing session at park avenue cds in Orlando, Florida, with 200 fans also in attendance. Although it was originally planned that the full band would play, lack of space dictated that it was only the two guitarists/singers Steven Wilson & John Wesley who delivered an impromptu performance, including many songs rarely (if ever) played by the band, making for a very special and intimate show. Fortunately this one-off event was captured by a remote recording facility and the complete 8 song, 33 minute performance is now being released by Tonefloat in a 180 Gr. vinyl edition with a gatefold picture sleeve created by photographer Lasse Hoile and designer Carl Glover.

Powerful instrumental music performed on electronics and a series of musical metal sculptures called "Strategic Structures".

Rava's visit to Buenos Aires in 1975 ended with the conception of this album.

Percussionist Frank Ricotti played in the National Youth Orchestra and was rated the UK's top vibraphonist during the late 60's. In 1971, with guitarist Mike de Albuquerque, he cut the multifaceted jazz album, First Wind, which alternated between experimental rock- influenced jazz and thoughtful adaptations of work by James Taylor, John Sebastian and Melanie Safka, with some surprising blues diversions too. However, Albuquerque soon joined ELO as a bassist, putting an end to the duo.

    Riff Raff: Original Man. Klimt (MJJ385). Street date: 25-02-2016. Limited edition of 500 copies. The second album released by Britain's Riff Raff was a further study in the textures of jazz-rock as they had been articulated not only on the band's issued debut, but also with Tommy Eyre and Pete Kirkley's stint with Mark Almond. Here are seven rather extended forays into keyboard-drenched pop/rock that carried a jazz sensibility in its beak and dropped it thoroughly onto blues-based progressive rock.
    Riley, Howard: Flight. Eargong Records (EG04LP). Street date: 06-11-20. Originally released in 1971 this landmark recording sees pianist Howard Riley with two of the greatest European improvisers - Barry Guy on bass and Tony Oxley on drums - literally reinventing the piano trio format.

    Riley, Terry: Live At La Salle Wagram, Paris, November 19th, 1975. DBQP (DBQP03). Street date: 13-12-18. "The Descending Moonshine Dervishes" is one of composer Terry Riley's most well known pieces, a brilliant swelling organ masterpiece. Though his performance of the piece 10 days later, at the Metamusik Festival in Berlin, is more well known, this version from Paris on November 19, 1975 may be superior.
    Riley, Terry: Live In Paris, 1975 By France Musique FM. DBQP (DBQP13). Street date: 28-02-19. Two tracks, one per side, recorded respectively at Eglise St. Roch, February 28th, 1975 and at La Salle Wagram, November 19th, 1975. Riley is in stunning form, playing the kind of endlessly rippling dosed organ drones with a sense of stasis in expansion that is uniquely brain-razzing.
    Riley, Terry: Music For The Gift. Jeanne Dielman (JD127). Street date: 13-09-18. Collecting three early key pieces from Riley, recorded at home in San Francisco, as well as live in concert at UC Berkeley and on radio in France, this is an essential part of the Terry Riley universe and some of his most celebrated early works. Containing deconstructed samples of a Chet Baker's rendition of Miles Davis "So What", Music For The Gift is a disquieting tape work that dissolves slowly and beautifully. "Mescalin Mix" is one of Riley's earliest tape works and features recordings from his home. Finally, "Concerto For Two Pianists And Five Tape Recorders" was recorded live at UC Berkeley in 1960 and features Riley's friend, La Monte Young on piano. Crucial early experimental and minimalism from a true innovator.
    Riley, Terry: Reed Streams. Endless Happiness (HE67005). Street date: 31-07-20. Long awaited reissue for Terry Riley's 1967 debut album, one of the greatest pieces of minimal music ever created. One track per side.

A legendary recording that pairs Don Cherry's heavenly trumpet stylings, Terry Riley's psychedelic/minimalist organ work and the vibes of Karl Berger in a great live concert recorded in Koln in 1975. A great document of a key moment in the history of minimalism music and a beautiful combination of great artists.

    Rocchi, Claudio: Il Miele dei Pianeti, le Isole, le Api (1974). Sony (88691988991) LP reissue. Street date: 13/04/12. A transitional album that would begin to pull the mystical, improvisational drone-folk back from the edges of space and reassert a more deliberate song structure here and there. Rocchi was helped here by musicians from Aktuala and this introduces a different flavor, compared to his previous few albums.
    Rocky's Filj: Storie Di Uomini E Non (1973). Sony 88697512641. May 2009. Definitely a band that deserved more consideration, Rocky's Filj broke up soon after the album was recorded. The album is jazz-rock oriented, but all the tracks have vocals, and Rocky's voice is very original.
    Roedelius, Hans-Joachim: Piano Piano. Song Cycle (CY993). Street date: 13-10-16. 180 gram gatefold 45 rpm 2LP audiophile edition, containing the bonus track "In Der Dämmerung" on side D.

Recorded in 1958, this historic album cemented Rollins' status as one of the greatest innovators in jazz. Experimenting for the first time with the "extended format" in a sax-led trio, Rollins and his all-star rhythm section (Oscar Pettiford on bass and Max Roach on drums) get down to business with the groundbreaking 19-minute "Freedom Suite", which Rollins uses to draw a parallel between freedom in music and freedom for African Americans in the 1950s. Featuring two bonus tracks, including the Roach / Pettiford original, "There Will Never Be Another You".
    Rollins, Sonny: Rollins Plays for Bird. Down At Dawn (DAD 122). Street date: 13-12-18. Reissue and limited edition of a '56 recording

Remastered from the original tapes, "Chorus" is one of the key albums mixing free jazz and spoken word "à la française". It is also a militant concept album which has lost nothing of its political force.
    Ros, Edmundo: Latin World Of Edmundo Ros. Naked Lunch (ND004). Street date: 06-12-19. Trinidad born bandleader Edmundo Ros was a key figure in Latin music in post war Britain. Immigrated to London in the late thirties, he is the one who effectively introduced the Rhumba and Samba to the U.K. A charming man and multi talented musician, Ros became a sensation, attracting the cream of London society to his appearances at the lavish Coconut Grove. Thanks to his infectious mix of authentic Cuban Rhumba and other ingredients including Mambo, Calypso and Samba, Latin music became a significant part of postwar Britain's dance scene. Originally released on Decca Records UK in 1970, "The Latin World of Edmundo Ros" stands as a great introduction to the exotic sound of Ros' big band.
    Rota, Nino: 8 e Mezzo. Doxy Cinematic (DOC103). Limited edition of 500 copies. May 2014.
    Rota, Nino: Il Gattopardo (The Leopard). Doxy Cinematic (DOC104). Limited edition of 500 copies. May 2014. Soundtrack for Visconti's masterpiece!
    Rota, Nino: La Dolce Vita. Doxy Cinematic (DOC102). Limited edition of 500 copies. May 2014. Legendary score from the legendary Fellini's movie. The music by Nino Rota is sometimes quasi-liturgical, sometimes jazz, sometimes rock; lurking beneath is the irreverence of tuba and accordions, and snatches of pop songs.
    Roversi, Cristiano: AntiQua. Ma.Ra.Cash Records (MRC LP 02). 19/11/12. Solo project from Moongarden's keybardist! Says Roversi: "AntiQua is a strange land where time flows at a more natural pace, I don't really know if it's on our planet, or even if it exists in the past, present or future, near or far'AntiQua manifests when we need it, every time we give in to dreams and forget about the daily grind. It is a goblet of wine in a candlelit tavern."
    Rovescio della Medaglia, Il: Contamination. Sony (88875121301). 180 gr. vinyl reissue. Sept. 2015.
    Russell, George Feat. Bill Evans: Jazz in the Space Age. Doxy ACV (ACV2077). Street date: 19-01-17. Numbered limited edition of 500 copies.
    Rymden: Space Sailors. Jazzland Recordings 2LP (3779285). Street date: 18-09-20. 2nd album by the band, somehow a morphed E.S.T. trio because of the presence of Esbjørn Svensson's rhythm section but definitely and clearly with their own identity, based on an increasing number of live shows, where they seek and carve new ideas and direction for their music, more and more gaining a strong empathy between each other.
    Saastamoinen, Ilpo: Joutsenen Juju. 2LP. Svart Records. Street date: 23-03-18. Limited edition of 200 on yellow and 300 on black vinyl, with gatefold cover. Saastamoinen and Vesala built the album on a progressive rock base, but blended styles fearlessly, making Joutsenen Juju a real treasure trove for anyone into creative, psychedelic 70's music. At times the music borders on the kind of ethno-kraut Popol Vuh were making, at others it dives headlong into psychedelic jazz.
    Saint Just: La Casa del Lago. Vinyl Magic (VMLP 183). street date: 23-06-16. Faithful reprint of the original '74 edition, pressed on blue vinyl.
    Saint Just: S/T. Vinyl Magic (VM182LP). Street date: 10-02-16. Clear green vinyl reissue.
    Salis: Dopo il Buio la Luce. AMS (AMS 115LP). Street date: 27-05-16.

It is finally reissued by AMS Records on vinyl after almost 40 years, in a faithful reproduction of the original edition.
    Samadhi: S/T (VMLP124). New vinyl reissue with the original artwork, label replicas and remastered sound. €17

Following Coltrane's untimely death in 1967, Sanders formed a quartet of his own with former Jazz Messengers pianist Lonnie Liston Smith, bassist Norman "Sirone" Jones of the Untraditional Jazz Improvisational Team, and drummer Majeed Shabazz. For this blistering performance, given at the Antibes Jazz Festival of 1968 and broadcast on French radio station WDR3, the quartet moves through various Sanders free-jazz workouts, taking in "Venus" from the Tauhid album and "The Creator Has A Master Plan" from Karma along the way, with the rhythm section holding down the fort as Sanders blows himself into the stratosphere.

    Schaeffer, Pierre & Henry, Pierre: Symphonie Pour un Homme Seul - Concerto des Ambigüités. Modern Silence (OI005). Street date: 31-03-16. Limited edition of 500 copies on HQ 180gr. vinyl. Pierre Henry, a classically trained musician, was one of Schaeffer's disciples and together they co-wrote the revolutionary Symphonie pour un Homme Seul, recorded in 1950. Despite its title, it is not a symphony in the classical sense, but a kind of suite divided into 12 movements. It is a musical collage featuring vocal fragments that are at times recorded backwards, accelerated or repeated, and other sounds like whistles, footsteps, doors slamming, metallic sounds, and a prepared piano. The Concerto side reveals Henry's personal approach to dissonance, with a strong impact of illogical sequences in the piano duel: the two instruments seem to collide in a furious rejection of the traditional idea of music, generating a clash of noises that reproduce the sonic pollution of the modern times.
    Schipa Jr., Tito: Orfeo 9. Vinyl Magic (VM134LP). 2LP. Oct. 2013. This double album was one of the first examples of pop operas in Italy. Influenced by classical music, Schipa released a beautiful work that can be hardly described as a proper rock album, but surely falls into the progressive music field. It featured for example Brainticket's leader Joel Vandroogenbroeck and drummer Tullio De Piscopo. Faithful reproduction of the original edition, including the additional lyrics booklet.

Classic double live album from this free spirited international trio, this time expanded with Chicago sax player Mars Williams. Recorded at Oslo´s Café Mono and at the Nattjazz festival in Bergen, both in May 2011, this fully shows how new drummer Frank Rosaly now is a perfect partner to founders Raoul Björkenheim (guitar) and bass player Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, not to mention Williams who fits in perfectly with only a minimum of rehearsals before these concerts. The interplay is simply stunning and the sound is of studio quality. Sporting a beautiful gatefold sleeve this is simply a great package all around.

Fluid, meditative guitar leads and innovative use of synthesizers, combined with a noted lack of percussion (and vocals) on all but a few songs, have drawn comparisons to Kosmische legends Tangerine Dream and Popol Vuh.
    Sensations' Fix: Portable Madness. Vinyl Magic (VM LP211). Street date: 25-01-19. Reissue as limited edition on splatter-coloured vinyl. "Portable Madness" is - along with an eponymous LP and "Fragments of Light" - one of the three titles published in 1974 alone, and can be considered the first true result of a group work. A fully instrumental record, conceived as the sum of two long suites (one on each side), dominated by keyboards and synthesizers, and also characterized by an energetic and pulsating rhythm section.

This was one of the three titles published in 1974, built around a collection of short psychedelic compositions, in which glimpses of 'cosmic' music can already be noticed; those elements would soon become a trademark in the group's repertoire.

In the summer of 1986, Adrian Sherwood (On-U Sound) went to Florence, Italy for a different kind of vacation: to make a record with noise-funk band Rinf.

For the first time, this album compiles the fully remastered complete sessions in a new package that cheekily references the testosterone-driven porn-obsessed lyrics, a beautiful three-color silkscreen + custom die-cut jacket.

Rattling sonorous wonder, emerging for the first time on any format since its original pressing, before us is a historic moment - a lost piece of the puzzle of the wondrous Italian avant-garde.

Twogether were a keyboard and drums duo from Dusseldorf, formed in 1973 out of the ashes of the groups Blue Squad and The Crew. Featuring organ, Fender Rhodes, acoustic piano, synths, and a ripping, jazzy drummer, the duo of Klaus Bangert and Reinhard Fischer stylistically range from krautrock to fusion, blues-rock to funky psychedelic jams. Primarily instrumental, the duo shows their virtuosity on album standouts "On The Move" and "Fusion". With a vibe at times more similar to Lee Michaels classic late 60's LPs than their German contemporaries, and with nods to Keith Emerson's work with The Nice, this is a welcome reissue of an impossibly rare early 70's prog-psych cult classic.

    V/A: Musique Concrete. Modern Silence (OI019). Street date: 26-08-16. Limited edition pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Le Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM) of the O.R.T.F. (Office of the French Radio-Television) is known in the world principally as the promoter of an original technique of realization as well as reflection : Musique concrète. For more than fifteen years, it has thus founded its experience, its methods of research and particular techniques upon a confrontation between the musical act, reflection upon its elements, experimentation on sound sources, and the electroacoustical means. Grouped around Pierre Schaeffer and François Bayle, composers and researchers try to give new direction to musical activity through the conjugated action of a program of Fundamental Research on the languages of music (concrete, electronic, but also instrumental and oriental) and a program of Expression, resulting in original compositions as well as essays for the ballet, theater, cinema, or television (...) In this LP you can find some great examples of the incredible production of many of the most celebrated composers of the movement: Boulez, Stockhausen, Ferrari, Parmegiani among others.
    V/A: Musiques Electroniques En France 1974-1984 Vol. 1. Replica (RPC15). Street date: 03/09/15. This compilation in 2 volumes aims at introducing the pioneers of electronic music, who are generally little known or completely anonymous, to the public. It is often not really acknowledged but, early in the 70's, and thanks to the commercialization of the first financially accessible synthesizers, some adventurous French musicians decided to adopt this instrument and add it to their musical palette. Some of the analog synthesizers that have since become legends, such as the VCS3, the Synthi AKS by EMS, the Mini-Moog, the ARP 2600 or the Odyssey, were even chosen to be used as their basic and principal means of creation. All of them created a remarkable and truly original music. Vol. 1 includes tracks by Heldon, Patrick Comelade, Patrick Vian and more ...

    Velvet Underground, The: Live in Dallas, TX: 28 October 1969. B13 (B158). 03/05/12. 140 gr. clear purple vinyl in transparent PVC sleeve with yellow lettering; limited edition of 500 copies. Some of the material included here was once released on the Velvet Underground Live album, but with a bad audio quality, due to Mercury's use of third or fourth generation tapes. However, the first generation tapes have since resurfaced and the difference in sound quality (heard here) is a welcome one! €16
    Velvet Underground, The: White Light/White Heat. Vinyl Lovers (990045). Street date: 25-10-18. Originally released in 1968, comes now reissued on translucent purple vinyl
    Velvet Underground & Nico: S/T. Picture Disc LP. Vinyl Lovers (999051LPP). Nov. 2016. The Velvets legendary debut album with the Warhol's Banana cover art printed on vinyl. 180 gram picture disc LP in deluxe sleeve, with 2 bonus tracks.
    Venetian Power: The Arid Land. Vinyl Magic (VMLP159). 21/03/14. First reissue ever by Vinyl Magic, a faithful reproduction of the 1971 original LP: an item which is practically impossible to find in any way!!! This 15-piece group from Venezia can hardly be described as a prog band and was in fact a theatre group formed by composer Claudio Ambrosini to represent his "The Arid Land" play in Northern Italy.
    Vespero : Hollow Moon. Street date: 26-10-18. Limited edition of 350 on marbled blue vinyl and flip cover. The album combines space-prog rock and some acoustic-ethno and psychedelic-ambient elements.

    Vitet, Bernard: La Guêpe. Souffle Continu Records (FFL010). August 2015. Limited Edition of 500 copies on black and 200 on white vinyl. 350 Gr. sleeve with Obi strip, reverse printing. Bernard Vitet was a key figure in the French free jazz / improv scene of the early 70's. This mythical avant jazz LP is the result of a truly magical session he put together in December '71. Not just free jazz from the 70's it has some 20th Century elements that recall some of the most memorable albums on the Italian Cramps label.
    Vostell, Wolf: Dé-coll/age Musik. Soave (SV02). Street date: 02-03-17. Limited edition gatefold LP. First released in 1982, "Dé-coll/age Musik" draws from material dating between the late 50's and early 80's - the results of Vostell's application of décollage, the near perfect inversion of collage. Rather than gathered and assembled sounds - as with Musique Concrète - these are the result of subtractions from a former whole - the death of one, giving life to the next. A singular body with no loyalty, producing shocking results!
    Wailer, Bunny: Blackheart Man. 4 Men with Beards (4M701LP). Street date: 01-03-18. This is the solo debut album by Bunny Wailer, originally released in 1976. Reissued in a gatefold sleeve edition with lyrics, pressed on red, green and yellow swirl vinyl.
    Waits, Tom: Live At Ivanhoe Theater, Chicago, IL - November 21st, 1976. B 13 (B206). Street date: 14/11/13. This Chicago live date is one of the finest sessions (both in terms of performance and recording quality) from the 76-77 world tour. Featuring his classic backing group of the time, The Nocturnal Emissions, this is Waits' at his drunken, pessimistic best. Limited edition of 500 copies on clear vinyl.
    Waits, Tom: Live At My Father's Place In Roslyn, NY 2LP October 10, 1977. Radio Loop Loop (RLL043). 2LP. Street date: 31-07-20. Absolutely first class live performance. The sound quality is surprisingly good. Tom's performance is assured and sounds heartfelt. The backing band are great, particularly Frank Vicari on top form on tenor sax.
    Hasse Walli & Zeus: Pop-Liisa 16. Svart Records. Street date: 09-03-18. Black or red vinyl (limited to 200 copies). Hasse Walli is the legendary guitarist behind early Piirpauke and Blues Section. Between these two groups Walli had a short-lived quartet called Zeus, whose short lifespan lasted from 1972 to 1973. No studio recordings exist, but the band did record a live session on air, the object of the present release!
    Walrus: S/T. The Electricity Recording Company (ELPS-201). LP release! Not to be confused with the British band from the 70's, this one comes from Sweden. While early German Electronic Kraut Rock seems to be in the band's collective DNA, that's just a small part of it. The roots of their music may be firmly planted in age old Psychedelic and Progressive Rock, but their branches reach well into the future to a new kind of Post-Rock perhaps. And theirs is a sound that changes constantly. Going from pastoral and emotional to jugular aggression in mere seconds, the band ebbs and flows, back and forth, creating spectacular atmospheres and moods. Building tension and tearing it down, telling stories and painting pictures. There is nothing quite like it.
    Waterloo: First Battle. Guerssen (GUESS 061). Street date: 02/09/09. Originally released in 1970, this is the sole output by the Belgian band, blending progressive rock and heavy prog, with an obvious Jethro Tull influence. This first ever official vinyl reissue offers high quality standards including an insert with extensive liners and photos.
    Waters, Muddy: Live At Theatre 1839, San Francisco, May 14th 1977. Radio Loop Loop (RLL048). Street date: 26-06-20. As recorded and aired by KSAN-FM radio.

    Web: I Spider. Klimt Records (MJJ354LP). Gatefold LP with inside pocket. Jan. 2013. Third and last album from 1970 before the name changed to Samurai. €16

    Wilen, Barney: Un Témoin Dans la Ville. Doxy Cinematic (DOC 126). 02/12/15. Having already played on a film soundtrack with Miles Davis on Luis Malle's "Ascenseur pour l'échafaud", Barney Wilen -- still barely in his 20s - got the opportunity to compose the score for another French film that used jazz as a background, "Un Témoin Dans La Ville". Judging by the present album the result is most convincing; one couldn't hope for a better marriage, so perfect is the way the music suits the image and vice versa. The soundtrack is coupled on the B side with the more freely jazzy studio album "Jazz Sur Seine", which teams Wilen with three-fourths of the original Modern Jazz Quartet (with Milt Jackson on piano only, of all things, Percy Heath on bass, and Clarke), plus the Latin percussion of Gana M'Bow. Wilen gets more of a chance to stretch out and reveal his swinging, warm tenor tone; Jackson is quite competent as a comping accompanist and in fairly fluent, right-handed bop flurries.
    Williams, Arthur: Forgiveness Suite. NoBusiness Records (NBLP 97). May 2016. Featuring: Peter Kuhn, Toshinori Kondo, Arthur Williams, William Parker and Denis Charles. Never earlier released composition from 1979. 400 copies limited edition.

    Williamson, Harry / Smyth, Gilli / Allen, Daevid: Stroking The Tail Of The Bird. Vinyl Lovers (901462). 180 Gr. vinyl + 7" Bonus! 25/07/13. Previously released under the Mother Gong moniker, this album compiled recordings that span from the 70's to the 90's. Glissando guitars and meditative synths combine to make timeless and ethereal psychedelia on par with Allen's best work in Gong. €16

    Workshop de Lyon: La Chasse de Shirah Sharibad. Le Souffle Continu Records (ffl032 LP). Sept. 2017. Still a source of joy, this lyrically feverish second album maintains a narrative dimension with subtle textures developed through the contrasting collective improvisations. With their ever-inventive melodicism, the Workshop de Lyon invent an imaginary folklore on this album which is unlike any other. It is a knowing mix of the avant-garde and the traditional, collective playing vying, with panache and complexity, with the inspired urgency of the soloists (among them the newly arrived Louis Sclavis). Even without filmed images the theatricality and humour of the group's live performances, essential components of their identity, can be felt during the long thematic suites which are both expressive and full of joy. First ever vinyl reissue of this classic recording on a 700 copies limited edition with Obi strip, reverse printing and a 12 page booklet
    Workshop de Lyon: Tiens! Les Bourgeons Eclatent... Le Souffle Continu Records (ffl033 LP). Sept. 2017.

An extraordinary, acid, counterculture take on The Wizard of Oz created under the auspices of electronic producer, Bernard Krause and combining Jacques Wilson's inventive lyrics with the moog synthesizers of the legendary Mort Garson. Even in the heady, drug-fuelled atmosphere of sonic exploration that ruled the late Sixties, there was never another album quite like The Wozard of Iz; a psychedelic masterpiece both of and ahead of its time. A psychedelic concept album of estimable mind: funny, crazed, beautiful and thought provoking.

Featuring significant contributions from his Soft Machine bandmate Elton Dean, amongst others, The End Of An Ear is the first solo and one of the more adventurous titles in Robert Wyatt's catalog.

Taped in the BBC studios in 1968, Frank Zappa starts off this legendary broadcast by thanking the BBC for featuring creative music, most of which could never be heard on American radio. Very Frank style! The improvisations take on a similar turn including the reference to "King Kong" with a fabulous performance.

Sung in a high-pitched voice by Roy Estrada, it's a fantastic doo-wop performance in complete contrast to the complex jazz-rock in the rest of the telecast.
