A very early release by humorist/poet/musician Ivor Cutler, probably best known for his appearance in Magical Mystery Tour and his albums on Virgin in the mid 1970's. This is a reissue of a 1967 artifact by "The Ivor Cutler Trio" (Ivor on vocals &...

This 1996 release has got to be the last - or at least one of the very last - CMP releases. Scott Cutshall-drums, percussion, Dave Liebman-soprano sax, Russ Lossing-piano and Tony Marino-bass.

"Scott did the RIGHT THING!! He let the musicians...


The first-ever legit reissue (and taken from the master tapes) of this very rare Australian progressive rock/electronic album that was recorded in 1976.

Essentially, Cybotron were the Australian Tangerine Dream and were a good band of the genre.

Darren Johnston, trumpet / Aram Shelton, alto saxophone, Bb clarinet, bass clarinet / Lisa Mezzacappa, double bass / Kjell Nordeson, drums, percussion.

Great new band with some familiar names; all play great, but Darren has released a previous...

"Previously unreleased DIY homemade psychedelia, teen beat, and fuzz-psych/prog by the amazing Swedish band Cymbeline, recorded from 1965-1971. Tracks like "Third Image" or "Look At The Stars" are an incredible find for anyone into US garage-psych (they wouldn't sound out of place on any Pebbles or Psychedelic Unknowns volume) and others like "Flicka", "Stolta Vingar", or "Mittuppslag" are top-notch, '70s fuzzed-out Scandinavian psych/prog. Formed in the industrial town of Norrköping in the mid '60s...

"Jeremiah Cymerman's second CD for Tzadik presents four new cut-up pieces using "recycled" source materials. Collapsed Eustachian for two trumpets and processing draws from two separate solo concerts of Nate Wooley and Peter Evans. I Woke Up Early the...

"The melody and texture of the Persian language exerts a subtle hold on the composing and improvising of the Berlin-based Cyminology quartet, heard here on its ECM debut Bandleader Cymin Samawatie, charismatic German-Iranian vocalist, sings her own...

This is the second full-length album that has come out by the reformed Cynic, the band who nearly single-handedly invented the technical metal genre.

Now 20 years later, (almost all of) the original band return and this is a great, modern...

Something pretty different for us but also something that is of very high quality and that I've been playing pretty constantly since getting a sample of this about a month ago. Founded in 1987, Cynic distinguished themselves for their unique (for the...

Seven albums by this great jazz drummer from the 60s forward. The albums include Metamusician's Stomp, Nuba, Something In Return, Special People, The Navigator, X-Man, Good To Go, and includes musicians such as David S. Ware, Jimmy Lyons, Ted Daniel...

Anthony Braxton: Saxophones / Andrew Cyrille: Drums

For many years, both greats of modern jazz - the saxophone player Anthony Braxton and the drummer Andrew Cyrille - have been pursuing their own musical developments. In the autumn of 2002...

Andrew Cyrille - drums
Bill McHenry - tenor saxophone

"The rare duo setting between percussionist and saxophonist has only a few recorded examples, think John Coltrane and Rashied Ali’s classic Interstellar Space.
Inspired by a remarkable Village Vanguard performance, first time producer Max Koslow asked the legendary drummer Andrew Cyrille and saxophone luminary Bill McHenry to record an album for him. The resulting recording Proximity highlights these two masters in the most intimate..

First-ever completely legit CD release of this early 1970 rarity. An incredibly obscure and rare early British symphonic/progressive album originally released on Fontana in 1970; I've only seen it on lp once, which is where I became aware...

“Der Osten Ist Rot starts off with the atrocious "Photo Song" which reeks of mid-80s banality and, open first listen, suggests that Czukay had completely lost his relevance. But if you can make it past that first track, the remainder of the album is completely out there - so much so that I am surprised Virgin released it - with only "Das Massenmedium" offering anything catchy, albeit still firmly within a left-of-center approach. In fact, once you've grown accustomed to Der Osten Ist Rot's warped...

Czukay's second album continues his fascination with and expermentation of using recordings from radio, television, short-wave and more, and 'gluing' non-similar sources together and making something unique from them, but also something that 'works' musically.
In the pre-sampling days of 1979, when this was first released, incorporating recordings off of the tv and radio into already existing songs was a fairly amazingly weird thing to be doing. For my tastes, this is his best realized solo album...

“I was about to give up on Czukay, but then he released this, easily his best work since Der Osten Ist Rot. Moving Pictures is an elusive, understated, and fleeting album, perfectly replicating that liminal stage between sleep and wakefulness. The space between the sounds is just as important as the sounds themselves. A really unique work that is also notable for the lyrical content of the final track, which preempts The Matrix.”-rateyourmusic

“Upon examining the eventful life of Can bassist Holger Czukay, one might come to the conclusion that this intrepid musician was a loner. His turbulent career exuded an enduring eccentricity governed by a boundless free spirit. Yet Czukay, who passed away unexpectedly last year at the age of 79, constantly emphasized that his creativity was always contingent upon a musical partner, whether that was a skin-and-bones counterpart or an anonymous manifestation that interacted with him through radio waves or...

"One of the most celebrated folks in improvised music, Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustafsson made three ultra-limited edition vinyl LPs, each featuring a different dedication to a favorite musician from the past. Released in batches of 99, these records found Gustafsson playing compositions by Duke Ellington, Albert (and his brother Donald) Ayler, and the important post-bop baritone player Lars Gullin. Long out-of-print, these priceless slabs of free music have quickly become sought after collector’s items...

"Helios Creed is a founding member of legendary US avantgarde space rock band Chrome. Chrome was founded in San Francisco in 1975. Their sound wasn't easy to label - being ahead of their time, Helios Creed and Damon Edge created music that featured heavy elements of feedback and distortion. They experimented in mixing synthesized noise with rock instrumentation, therefore they are now seen as part of the post punk movement (even when punk was still in full flow at that time). Their breakthrough came in...

Legendary, NWW name-checked, 1968 tape assemblage by Holger Czukay and Rolf Dammers.

“Holger Czukay, before his famous work in Can, was disciple of Karlhein Stochausen. He learned a lot about electronic and concrete music and tape manipulation. His first album, "Canaxis" predates almost every experiment with world music: from Popol Vuh to Brian Eno, from Steve Roach to SPK. Holger created tape loops with found voices and sounds (coming from Vietnam, China and Japan generally). "Canaxis" uses...

"...[then] The Trip released their masterpiece, Caronte in 1971. The powerful interplay between Billy Gray (guitar) and Joe Vescovi (keyboards) is excellent throughout the album. If the 'dream collaboration' between Jimi Hendrix and Keith Emerson had ever happened, it would have sounded close to this!"-Scented Gardens Of The Mind

"The Trip were but one of many Italian bands combining rock, classical, jazz, pop, and folk to produce what is now known as the Italian rock renaissance. While most of...
