“This is Annie Barbazza’s first solo album. She is a rising star of the international avant / prog scene. She was on stage with Greg Lake and plays bass with Paul Roland Band. She performs with Henry Cow’s John Greaves as a duo and she already has an album on Manticore records, produced by Greg Lake, Moonchild, with pianist Max Repetti.
This album has a long history: Lake originally wanted Annie to played all the instruments, but the record slowly turned into an all-star friends collaboration for...

“Now available on CD for the first time. Patterns Of Consciousness is the powerful second full-length from analog synth composer Caterina Barbieri. Gorgeous high resolution analog textures and algorithmic melodies unfold under Barbieri's careful control, exploring the basic nature of sound and consciousness. These pieces are minimal in arrangement but maximal in presence asserting Barbieri as a unique voice in contemporary electronic music composition. Patterns Of Consciousness was originated by ideally...

"After two albums which established Barbieri as an important new voice on the saxophone, his 1971 appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival made him a star. This performance was captured on the album Pampero. It is semi-acoustic jazz at its most satisfying.
The Argentinian saxophonist pulled back slightly from free jazz and focused more on his roots, ably backed by Bernard Purdie on drums, Lonnie Liston Smith on keyboards and Nana Vasconcelos on percussion.

"Planets + Persona, the 2017 studio album from Richard Barbieri, is the most sonically expansive work to date from the former Japan and Porcupine Tree keyboard maestro.
The album combines vintage analogue synthesisers with acoustic instrumentation, and incorporates Jazz elements, pitching Barbieri's unique sound designs against improvisations from a personally hand-picked group of guest musicians that includes Percy Jones, Luca Calabrese and Lisen Rylander Love.

"Brand new album from Philadelphia’s much loved neo-space rock stoner drone outfit. A euphoric transcendental journey to a mountain top nirvana, a psychedelic tapestry that slowly unwinds as they travel onwards into the inner mind. A 40-minute opus delivered from a hail of reverb soulfully caressed by a ceremonial flute, that makes way for a shroud of ‘Weld’—era Neil Young fog. Bardo Pond is your rather ruffled tour guide to this far off place, this....

“Sam Cooke’s ‘A Change Is Gonna Come’ is right in Frisell’s wheelhouse as a soulful blend of country, blues and gospel, and he delivers jagged electric phrases that, like fireworks, sometimes end abruptly with a starburst and sometimes zigzag before fading. John McLaughlin’s ‘Follow Your Heart’ is likewise refried and slowly wrung out after sizzling. Baron comes to the fore on fleet but gentler tracks such as Benny Goodman’s ‘Benny’s Bugle,’ Charlie Parker’s ‘My Little Suede Shoes’ and a nifty soft-shoe...

"Robyn Schulkowsky, New Music's high priestess of percussion, and Joey Baron, one of the liveliest and most creative drummers in New York's Downtown scene, come from very different avant-garde traditions. Yet in meshing their talents when they play, categories blur – or rather dissolve. What they bring with them is a kind of oceanic experience.

“Disc A – Live at Factory Underground is a live in the studio deal. Barre is joined by Dan Crisp on vocals/guitar, Alan Thomson on bass/vocals and drummer Darby Todd. They form a tight, confident ensemble and roar through a well-chosen selection of deeper-track Tull material. “Sealion” crunches along smartly. Also nice to hear a new take on “Back to the Family”. I’ve always had a soft spot for “Steel Monkey”, and this version has a muscular brutality to it that works well.

“This album showcases Barre's unique skills as a musical arranger, blending original compositions with songs from the Tull catalog! CD comes packaged in a digipak with 2 rare bonus tracks!”

“Martin Barre has produced his own solo albums away from his work in Jethro Tull, but AWAY WITH WORDS is by far his finest offering to date.

“Marc Barreca and Kerry Leimer have worked on a nearly parallel musical course for more than forty years. Nearly parallel because their musical paths do occasionally cross. First in 1980 with "Four Pages From An Unfinished Novel" on K. Leimer's first solo album Closed System Potentials. Again during the live performance of Music For Land And Water and for the massive loop piece "Heart Of Stillness" from The Neo-Realist (At Risk) by the virtual group Savant.

"Dual Mono is the third Barreca | Leimer collaboration. The process used for producing Dual Mono was designed to destabilize established habits and predilections in favor of responding to the music in at least subjectively new ways. It was also designed to reduce the illusion of control, to become more responsive to and accepting of unpredicted outcomes, and to give the music—as much as possible—a voice less tampered with...
