"This is the third album by Norway's Bushman's Revenge (Even Helte Hermansen, Gard Nilssen, Rune Nergaard). Like great records from Elephant9, Scorch Trio, Supersilent, In The Country, Spunk, Fire! and others, Jitterbug was recorded in the old...

Power trio music that does somehow manage to combine stoner rock and punk/jazz, harmolodics, etc.

“Last Dream of the Morning is insistently acoustic, distinctions between free jazz and improvised music fall away here. Kinships and antecedents extend from AMM to Sun Ra and they’re being consistently synthesized and extend into new terrains.
Bassist John Edwards and drummer Mark Sanders have become the defining ‘rhythm’ pairing of English free jazz, working together for decades in groups with Evan Parker, Veryan Weston and many others. If this is a first meeting of a trio with Butcher, past...

John Butcher: tenor and soprano saxophones
Thomas Lehn: electronic
Matthew Shipp: piano

“Matthew Shipp, John Butcher and Thomas Lehn appropriate the different aspects of music and sound and together manage to transform / combine / corrupt the elements at their disposal while keeping their individual identities and personalities intact. Their languages have the ability to set music in motion, to accelerate or decelerate, showing how these two factors can balance or unbalance each other...

"We can’t say that these two musicians are traveling parallel ways. John Butcher’s experiments with feedback, amplification, microtonality and multitracking are pretty far from the studies in rhythm and texture developed by Paal Nilssen-Love. The British

“Although Chargin Falls, Ohio-native musician, Chris Butler, is most known for his creating of the experimental new wave band The Waitresses, the Kent State University student (yes, he experienced the infamous Kent State shooting) was also actively involved in the highly influential 70s Kent/Akron/Cleveland music and art scene that practically invented the American new wave sound with such bands as Devo, Chrissie Hynde’s Jack Rabbit, the Bizarros, Pere Ubu, Pagans, and Butler’s own Waitresses, 15-60-75...

40 years after their first release together in Tin Huey, two fifths of the Huey’s made an album together (and there won’t be another, as Ralph died at the end of 2017).

"Ralph Carney calls and says, "How come there are no more silly bands? Let's do a project! I miss your creativity!" I say "I miss yours!", so we come up with the idea of doing songs about obscure holidays. We pass tracks back and forth, and bingo... we have enough material for a whole record. Big fun! Hope you enjoy it!-Chris Butle

“Jerry Butler's voice was the perfect pop medium, gracefully soulful and smooth as ice, leading to his signature nickname, "the Ice Man." Simply put, Butler could sing last week's grocery list and make it work. Born in Mississippi, his family was part of the migration north to Chicago, where as a child he began singing in church, which is where he met Curtis Mayfield, and together they joined a vocal group, the Roosters. By 1957 the quintet had changed its name to Jerry Butler & the Impressions, and a...

“This album was recorded in the days when the Butterfield Blues Band had been expanded from the early 6-piece Chicago blues band into a larger band with brass section and the later albums (issued as Paul Butterfield's Better Days) veered more towards jazz.
This live album from 1970 sounds really good and almost has a better sound than the band's first studio album, we get off to a great start with a harmonica solo then the brass slams in with the Stax-style punchy horn fills of "Born Under a Bad...

“Acclaimed South African guitarist Guy Buttery and Indian master musicians Mohd. Amjad Khan (tabla) & Mudassir Khan (sarangi), One Morning In Gurgaon was inspired by the trio’s shared appreciation of the musical wonders and landscapes of the subcontinent.”

Very rare, 16 year old album on the long defunct and collectable Hellhound label by a Norfolk, VA. band who are still around and are much better than they are here. This is metal/technical metal with typical metal vocals. Now they are an instrumental...

“They make music that has "length and width and breadth and depth", but no real recognizable shape to speak of. Having "shape" would mean that any of the previous adjectives would have to go, because confining the attributes to the world of Space would limit its possibilities. At the same time, they offer us a glimpse into expanded dimensions of music that Mtume talked about.
Enough philosophised: this is great music.

What a killer band: Taylor on cornet, guitarist Mary Halvorson, drummer Tomas Fujiwara, bassist Ken Filiano, saxophonist Jim Hobbs, and tubist/bass trombonist Bill Lowe!

"Apparent Distance is a four-part suite. In the liner notes, Bynum writes..

Nate Wooley :: trumpet
Stephanie Richards :: trumpet
Vincent Chancey :: French horn
Steve Swell :: trombone
Bill Lowe :: bass trombone & tuba
Jim Hobbs :: alto saxophone

This documents two different versions of Bynum’s modular composition “Navigation,” with two sets recorded in studio with an all-star line up of great, young, creative musicians.

“Trumpeter Donald Byrd and baritonist Pepper Adams always made for a potent team. With guitarist Kenny Burrell, pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Louis Hayes (using the pseudonym of "Hey Lewis") completing the sextet, this was a particularly strong group.
For this Bethlehem LP, Byrd and Adams play two of Pepper's originals, Errol Garner's rarely performed "Trio," Thad Jones' "Bitty Ditty" and a lengthy and memorable rendition of "Stardust." Well worth searching for.”-AllMusic

Early recordings recorded shortly after their formation by this quintessential groove / kosmi-groov / funky jazz outfit. Unlike their studio albums, you get long tracks here which cook in a 1973, funky jazz kinda way!

I never heard the Groundhogs back in their early 70s heyday, so it was with great pleasure that I finally heard all of their classics and I have to report back that I wish that I had heard them then!
This is their second album, originally released in 1969 and this is excellent progressive blues. There were greater things still to come, but this still has good songs, good playing and good ideas.

I had never heard of Ben Reynolds until ordering this from the always great Strange Attractors label. This is very beautiful and deep solo guitar music. Personally recommended.

"Between 1961 and 1965, Eje Thelin formed his first own group with which he toured across Europe. In 1964 he performed in Copenhagen with George Russell; from the late 60s to the mid-70s he played with Joachim Kühn and John Surman and turned to Free Jazz.
This album has become a legend, mostly due to the participation here with Belgian Joel Vandrooogenbroeck, who had played with big names such as René Thomas, Bobby Jaspar, Barney Wilen and Zoot Sims but who, in 1968 would form the experimental rock...
