"The band D.A.T.A. consists of four members of South London musicians, who met a year ago. Through a mutual interest in pushing improvised jazz further, they formed a collective that gave them their own unique voices. The band name D.A.T.A. derives...

Another approach to free jazz, four musicians from various musical genres focusing on the compositional structure of improvisation. This is the group’s second CD on SLAM. The band D.A.T.A. consists of four members of South London musicians, who met...

German progressive band with heavy Westcoast psychedelic touches, comparable to the late 60's San Francisco sound. This is the first time it has been legitimately reissued on CD, and includes a bonus track. Includes the typically tree-deforestationing ...

So, around 1995 or so, there was this really great album on a tiny label of this young band who were obviously well trained classically, but who liked doing things like posing on the inner booklet naked. Nice CD though. Suddenly in 1998 they reappear...

Avant chamber-rock with R.I.O. type leanings and modern production touches and values. Very good stuff from a band who has been doing it their own way for nearly 20 years!

So, around 1995 or so, there was this really great album on a tiny label of this young band who were obviously well trained classically and who fused pop, eastern-european folk and classical music, with jazz and a punk attitude.
Suddenly in 1998 they reappear as DAAU on SONY Classics (!), with a very good album that included lots of musical guests. Of course *that* didn't last, so they are back on a little label again (their own, I think) for this release which celebrates 25 years of their musical...

Despite a French-sounding name, D'Accord are a Norwegian prog-rock sextet (vocals and flute, dual keyboards, guitar, bass and drums) and this is their second album. They combine elements of classic progressive rock (I hear Jethro Tull, King Crimson)...

Good and unusual band from France making their debut here. The quintet lineup is electric/acoustic guitar and vocals, keyboards, flute/vibraphone, bass and drums. This actually does what many 'progressive rock' albums set out to do; it incorporates...

Fourth album by Claudio Simonetti's post-Goblin band, who perform much of the classic horror film-score material by Goblin. This is mostly live and adds 3 'bonus' studio tracks, including their take on Tubular Bells (not 40 minutes long, unfortunately).

A rare CD by Lesli Dalaba, one of the most elusive improvisers in the downtown scene, whose soulful trumpet has graced the bands of Wayne Horvitz, Butch Morris, Eugene Chadbourne and Fred Frith. Here she is joined by a trio of women superstars, Carla K...

"Collaboration between New York beat poet Steve Dalachinsky and French art-rockers The Snobs. Dalachinsky plays with words like models William Burroughs or Allen Ginsberg did few decades ago: using cut-up and automatic writing, he creates new meanings...

"Dalton's debut album Riflessioni: Idea D'Infinito clocks in at ridiculous 28+ minutes, but every minute of it is quality time. Affinity to early UK prog is noticeable in the grimy, blues-influenced guitar riffs and leads, typically breathy and...

This big band (11 pieces here), led by T.S. Heg (alto sax & keyboards) is nominally a 'jazz outfit', but since in addition to lots of reeds, brass, bass and drums, they work with 2 guitars, accordion/moog and 2 drummers, it's a fairly safe bet that thi...

"The Darkening Scale is the solo project of David Janssen aka Ted The Loaf of Renaldo & The Loaf. A purely digital affair, DS started in 2006 when RATL was on hold. The Entomology of Sound was the first album and came out as digital file and a very limited CDr. David says about it: "Back in 2006, much to my surprise, I found myself making music again after a long gap. Starting at the bottom of a steep learning curve, The Entomology of Sound was the first result, followed by a couple of other collections...



Early German jazz and beyond supersession, recorded in 1967 for SABA, who eventually went bust and reappeared as MPS. Wolfgang Dauner-piano, prepared piano, Jean-Luc Ponty-violin, Gerd Dudek-tenor sax, clarinet, Eberhard Weber-cello, Jürgen Karg-bass...

"No doubt: German piano player and composer Wolfgang Dauner is one of the most important figures of the jazz scene in Germany. He left his footprints by - more than oftenly - breaking new ground. From the early 1960 years on he worked exclusively...

"They were exciting years, when Miles Davis used to drive through New York in an open sports car listening to Stockhausen's tape manipulations, and when Kraftwerk and Can in Düsseldorf and Cologne developed their own special style of Kraut rock. Experimentation with electronic music, and research into all its possibilities, were very exciting, but could be extremely frustrating too, especially under live conditions. "There were no instructions, no one who could help you to find the different sounds and...

Hard to believe that this exists! The Spencer Davis Group was a British r'n'b/pop band of the mid 60's, who are best known for bringing Steve Winwood to the world (before you laugh, before Steve became a horrible MTV pop star, he was the leader of the ...

Read about this and be amazed. And then also please do realize that it doesn't live up to the anticipation. It probably couldn't under any circumstances, but it just doesn't. But it's still a very, very interesting historical piece.

"Saxophonist George Davis is an enigmatic figure in postwar jazz. He’s best known for leading the band in which Jackie & Roy met – young singer Jackie Cain encountered pianist Roy Krall in the mid-1940s, playing together under Davis in a club on the south side of Chicago called Jump Town. They cut two 78-rpm records for Aristocrat as the George Davis Quartet; these sides followed Davis into obscurity. In 1948/49, Jackie & Roy went on to work with Charlie Ventura. At the same time, Davis cut a very...

"Pianist Kris Davis is rapidly becoming one of the most sought out pianists in New York. Every recording we get our hands on, we find her. The trio Paradoxical Frog with Tyshawn Sorey and Ingrid Laubrock, her trio Good Citizen.

The smokiest, noir-est, most atmospheric 50s jazz album you would ever hope to hear and own.
This is seldom considered one of Miles’ great ones, but it’s absolutely one of my favorites of his pre-electric era! Highly recommended to anyone looking for their a French noir film soundtrack for their life; “Set ‘em up, Joe!”

“Jazz and film noir are perfect bedfellows, as evidenced by the soundtrack of Louis Malle's Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud (Lift to the Scaffold). This dark and seductive tale is.
