"Caamora is a partnership of Clive Nolan (Pendragon/Neo) and Agnieszka Swita in a lavish and creative collaboration. They provide the artistic nucleus to an extravagant and imaginative musical experience. The "Walk On Water" EP includes new material...

This is a engaging and utterly charming tribute to an engaging and charming and unique composer and character, performed with a modern, almost indie-rock vibe, while being true to the compositions and the composer's intent. I'm sure Moondog would have loved this and any fan of Moondog will love this.

"French band Cabaret Contemporain pay tribute to the composer Moondog -- New York's Viking -- with singing by two Scandinavian sirens, Swedish singers Linda Oláh and Isabel Sörling. The seven...

CDC (translates as "Wax Heads") are a very good, unique Mexican band who have started to gain a foothold in the USA with superior and spirited performances at Progday and NEARFest. This is a compilation of work, including tracks from their albums, but...

Roberto Cacciapaglia made two amazingly great, space / minimal albums in the late 70s / early 80s.

This is his latest, released in 2014, which is still systems music, but it is more 'romantic' sounding and performed on solo piano ala some of Phillip Glass' piano works.

It's good. It isn't fabulous (at least not for this old minimalist), but we have a tiny number of copies at a relatively very low price for fans and completists.

This was a very obscure double album opera from the early 1980's.

Pretty amazing, 50-year old archival find in pretty amazingly good sound.
This is John Tchicai and Finn von Eyben's group together after the last version of the New York Art Quartet broke up.

This is a pretty great, very, very rare album from Italy. Using a lineup of acoustic piano, electric bass and drums, this has the sound of a jazz trio playing progressive rock. The music swings at points but there's too much 'trickery' and stop/start...

Back again ONE LAST TIME. 50% off the regular price, while they last! This really is it, I think for this one at this price....

This is a pretty great, very, very rare album from Italy. Using a lineup of acoustic piano, electric bass and drums, this has the sound of a jazz trio playing progressive rock. The music swings at points but there's too much 'trickery' and stop/start-ness going on for this to really be considered a jazz album. As Bill said when we were working and this was playing....

Tokyo playwright, director and artist J.A. Caesar sprang to prominence in the early '70s largely through his work with Shuji Terayama's Tenjo Sajiki Theatre, specializing in vaguely sinister music reminiscent of a Hammer House Of Horrors soundtrack...

The debut CD from a quartet from Brasil who fuse the popular music of Northeast Brazilian music with jazz, bits of Andean folk music and perhaps even a touch of chamber music. Two guys handle drums and percussion and the other two are utility...

All John Cage excerpts are from John Cage's "Silence and One Year from Monday," recorded at 222 Bowery in New York City, December 1968 and March 1969, courtesy of Giorno Poetry Systems.

"This selection of Cage's music provides a rare opportunity to get to...

This is piano works, performed by fabulous pianist Margaret Leng Tan. [New Albion]

John Cage is famous for his theories and his writings and his influence, but he also made some really excellent music and, for me, these works for prepared piano (created between 1946-1948 and an unbelievably radical idea at the time) are some of his...

Some of us oldsters remember UK Decca's HEAD label, which attempted to market modern classical masters to the 'hip/progressive rock' young'uns. Did it work? I don't know. But the records were very good, and now they are being reissued, which is cause f...

"This double-CD set combines two of the key titles of Columbia Records’s legendary “Music of Our Time” series curated by David Behrman. Jeanne Kirstein’s recording of Cage’s early keyboard works remains a touchstone of Cagean interpretation...

The last record by this fine pianist/keyboardist, who first came into the public's eye with Magma and Zao. This is a jazz/electric jazz release that features François on keyboards, François Causse-drums, Petteri Parviainen-electric bass, Leonard Le...

Pianist Faton is undoubtably best known as a member of Magma during their early years, performing with them on their first two albums, and especially shinning on 1001 Centigrades. Right after 1001, he and Yochk'o Seffer split from Magma to form one of ...

A great price on this intimate album of duos from these two excellent French players. Cahen-piano and Seffer-tenor & soprano sax, piano, flute and vocals first worked together in Magma, appearing on their first two albums, and then later co-founded the...

"Jazz pianist/composer Uri Caine adapts works by the great classical composers, applying a wide range of musical styles from jazz and soul to klezmer and drum ‘n’ bass. A fascinating sound experience features great solos by Joyce Hammann (violin), Chris..

"Uri Caine is a musician of astonishing virtuosity and versatility. Coming out of the legendary Philly Jazz scene, his playing is an encyclopedia of styles from Tatum to Evans and beyond. With Moloch he interprets tunes from Zorn’s Book of Angels in a...

"When John Cales was invited for the Rockpalast-Festival on October, 14th 1984, he had just released the desolate masterpiece "Music For A New Society" (1982), "Caribbean Sunset" (1983) and "John Cale Comes Alive" (1984).
Compared to the official live album, JOHN CALE's performance at the Rockpalast was far more intense, desperate and wild. He performed the songs with a very hard edge, sometimes even deconstructed them ("Heartbreak Hotel"), receiving a mixed reaction from the audience, that just had..

One of the great singer-songerwriter albums of the 70's, and with a nice, decidedly intellectual and literary bent. Cale is in excellent voice, and the tunes are memorable. Cale performs on keyboards, viola and bass, and also appearing are Lowell Georg...

Great set of two of John's performance on Rockpalast in 1984 (with his band) and 1983 (solo).

"Even today, JOHN CALE is renowned for having been a member of the Velvet Underground alongside Lou Reed, Maureen Tucker and Sterling Morrison...

John Cale's 2nd solo album, from 1972, and his first of two classics on Reprise (Paris 1919 followed next year), this is a odd, completely NON-pop release with strong elements of 20th century classical music and organized sound. Quite radical for 1972,...

Excellent price on this set, as not too long ago, each of the 3 albums reissued here in full, and with good liner notes and photos, as well as bonus material, was available seperately at a higher price than this set with everything! "This double CD com...

John Cale's first solo album.

"John Cale had the strongest avant-garde credentials of anyone in the Velvet Underground, but he was also the Velvet whose solo career was the least strongly defined by his work with the band, and his first solo...

Great to see this long unavailable underground rock/new music classic available again, after a long period of unavailability. When I was in High School and first bombarding myself with the 'secrets' of weirdo music, this 1970 recording brought together...

"Calicanto, one of the most important bands in the Italian folk music landscape, presents the double CD ’25 anni Calicanto’. This work is an anthology that walks through the history of the ensemble, which was born in Padova 25 years ago. By publishing...

This is the first CGT album of all original material. Guests here include Tony Levin and Julie and Eric Slick, among others.

"The release of Andromeda celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the California Guitar Trio. The CGT plays a unique...

2004 studio album which is produced by Tony Levin. Tony is just the producer this time around, and doesn't actually perform on the CD, so this album just concentrates on the trio and their work. And, of course, the band always has one or two covers of well known pieces and this time it is the "Riders" medley: Ghost Riders In The Sky turning into Riders On The Storm! This also includes a video, that is watchable on your computer.

"The California Guitar Trio is all about precision...

The First Decade is a very good 'best of' of the band's releases from their first 10 years, but you are really buying this for CG3 + 2! Both of these are really hard to find these days and this is a great price on the set.

After their acclaimed performance at Nearfest 2001 comes a full studio release of their collaboration with bass/stick and drums, featuring the rhythm section of King Crimson. The usual blending of great interlocking playing, this time with a strong rhythmic push, courtesy the...


"Cab Calloway was a gloriously outsized manifestation of all that was frantic in the first full flowering of prohibition-era jazz. Dressed with all the flash of a brand new Cadillac, leading a crack band who could swing and sway with both abandon and...

Excellent second album from this fine Italian avant-progressive ensemble with more than a touch of jazz in them as well. Well played, well paced and everything just fits. Highly recommended!...

"Lucky Leif and the Longships is a 1975 record album by Robert Calvert, and produced by Brian Eno. It is a concept album dealing with how American culture might have been different had the Vikings managed to colonise the continent. The album is a tour...

"At the end of his time in Chicago, in 1999, Brian Calvin recorded a batch of new songs with poet Devin Johnston. Designed to be an album, mostly recorded and mixed by Jim O'Rourke, who also plays bass and contributes background vocals on some cuts, they were never released, languishing in the vaults for almost two decades. Calvin and Johnston had both been members of USA, the band that recorded an LP and an EP for Drag City in the two years before this music was recorded. On the occasion of...

This 2003 remastered reissue comes in a nice digi-pack cover that contains all of the original artwork. "Camacho is one of the great Spanish folk-rock poets and this album is quite emotional, balanced between sparse acoustic guitar and vocals songs and...

"Belgian-born, but living in Oslo and being strongly involved in the Norwegian scene, pianist Jonas Cambien makes his debut as a band leader with two of Norway‟s most exciting players from the younger generation. Cambien has a particular view of the way improvisation and written material can intertwine. Influenced by textures and methods of free improvised music, his compositions function....

Jonas Cambien piano
Adrian Myhr double bass

"The elegance and complex delicacy of contemporary classical music and the drive and energy of jazz-rooted improvisation cross characteristics in the very special duo formed by Belgian-born, but residing in Oslo, pianist Jonas Cambien and the Norwegian double bassist Adrian Myhr. A member of the chamber music ensemble Aksiom, Cambien can develop tachycardic and jumping lines like the ones we heard from Thelonious Monk and Cecil Taylor with the sam

Superb, newly remastered edition of this classic progressive album that features liner notes by Mark Powell, bonus tracks and excellent remastering. Basically these records have been given the same excellent job that Decca gave to the Caravan catalog...

"This is Camel's best studio album since they went independent in 1991. While this album contains some classic Camel sound, there are also some pleasant surprises. As always, there is a lot of great guitar playing by Andy Latimer. In addition, Andy plays more flute than usual on this album. In places, the flute playing is reminiscent of Ian Anderson. The album also features Guy LeBlanc's fine keyboards. Five of the seven songs are more than 7 minutes long, with the title track clocking in at more than...

The 1st album by Camel, re-released by the band themselves.

"Two hours of live recordings at Billboard Live in Hollywood during their 1997 West Coast tour."

This is a fantastic artistic interpretation of John Steinbeck`s "The Grapes Of Wrath", and it thoroughly explores the theme of The Joads` journey into the false eden called California. It starts with the prying wind theme "The Dust Bowl" that turns into a vocal manifesto of the family`s unrelenting hope "Go West". Then we have a short symphonic masterpiece "Dusted Out" whose dramatic performance shows the drama of the Okies being kicked out of their homes. "Mother Road" brings another important message...
