"Pale Bloom finds Sarah Davachi coming full circle. After abandoning the piano studies of her youth for a series of albums utilizing everything from pipe and reed organs to analog synthesizers, this prolific Los Angeles-based composer returns to her first instrument for a radiant work of quiet minimalism and poetic rumination.
Recorded at Berkeley, California’s famed Fantasy Studios, Pale Bloom is comprised of two delicately...

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 ...


“One challenge of this frustrating time has been finding methods to handle grief. The loss of loved ones, enforced isolation, and abounding uncertainty have only heightened anxiety and it's painful effects. Learning how to cope with grief and work through it is imperative for one's mental health.
Saxophonist and composer Caroline Davis has done much to try to allay her own emotions after the harsh period she dealt with in 2019. Davis lost her father early in the year and was trying to cope with this..

"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.

On her 2016 album Duopoly, pianist Kris Davis highlighted her deeply attuned artistry as never before. Conceived as a set of rotating duo performances, Duopoly found Davis in the company of Bill Frisell, Tim Berne, Don Byron, Julian Lage, Marcus Gilmore and other musical giants. Of all these fascinating encounters, it was the pairing of Davis and fellow piano great Craig Taborn, that sparked further extensive collaboration...

Another early electric Miles favorite, driving along in Billy Swann's car blasting his 8-track version of this!

"Along with its sister recording, Pangaea [currently out of print], Agharta was recorded live in February of 1975 at the Osaka Festival Hall in Japan. Amazingly enough, given that these are arguably Davis' two greatest electric live records, they were recorded the same day. Agharta was performed in the afternoon and Pangaea in the evening. Of the two, Agharta is superior. The band with...


This is the 1999 remaster with new photos, notes, and a bonus track. In case somone among you doesn't own this, now you have no excuse now. This is one of the very cornerstones of the beginning of jazz/rock, progressive music and all that we hold dear. Made with an amazing cast of players: Miles, Wayne Shorter, Joe Zawinul, Larry Young, Jack DeJohnette, Lenny White, John McLaughlin, Chick Corea, Dave Holland, etc. etc!
Recorded in just 3 days in August, 1969, and brilliantly edited/shaped by Teo....

More info below, but basically, the 3 quartet tracks which are released here for the 1st time ever are fantastic and great recordings. Chick was the Rhodes MASTER! The Isle of Wight show is a great show and if you don't already have it, this is a great release and great value.

"It would be easy to casually dismiss one CD with a running time slightly under one hour after the wealth of "box" sets from the vault, since it would seem that the number of tapes which can be cleaned up are thinning out...

Starting in 1973, Miles headed in a newer, even more electric direction, adding multiple guitarists and really rocking it up. This live concert from March, 1974, features Miles on trumpet and electric organ, saxists Dave Liebman and Azar Lawrence, guitarists Pete Cozy, Reggie Lucas and Dominique Gaumont, Michael Henderson holding down the funky bottom, Al Foster on drums and Mtume on percussion. Great, loud, abrasive, funky stuff that was an obvious influence on the no-wave, of all things (listen to...

This album rather gently began the electric period of Miles' career. Herbie is on half the tracks playing electric piano, while Chick is on the other half on electric piano. 1968 and you can early the earliest traces of rock and funk in his music here....

"This 66 minute set from April 9th 1970 at the Fillmore West is a different beast to what followed in the next two days, with the April 10th concert available as 'Black Beauty' and the April 11th one in part on 'The Bootleg Series Volume 3' and in full on 'April 11th 1970 Fillmore West'. Whilst all these.

"...Davis, probably a bit bored by some of his repertoire and energized by the teenage Tony Williams' drumming, performed many of his standards at an increasingly faster pace as time went on. These versions of "So What," "Walkin'," "Four," "Joshua,"...

If it is possible for there to be one album that is THE 'ground zero' for jazz/rock, this is it.

“This amazing 4CD set contains 2 full shows recorded at Stockholm’s Concerthouse using the best equipment known back then.
First show is from March 22nd featuring John Coltrane (tracks 1-1 to 2-1), the second was recorded on the next tour in October 13th of the same year, 
now with Sonny Stitt as Miles’ sideman on saxophone.
The rest of the musicians are the same on both shows; Jimmy Cobb, Paul Chambers and Wynton Kelly.”

Tremendous price on two albums of (mostly live) astonishment. This album was (mostly) recorded live at Washington DC's Cellar Door on the one night (October 19, 1970) that John McLaughlin came down from NYC to join the regular group of Miles, Keith Jarrett, Gary Bartz, Michael Henderson, Jack DeJohnette and Airto Moreira. Too bad I was only 12 at the time, or I would have mosey'd down there too.
With the posthumous release of all of the shows in the "Cellar Door" box, I have read a lot of reviews...

When Miles stopped making music in 1975, he went out on (one of his many) career high notes, as this great show attests. Excellent radio broadcast/soundboard sound.

"On his tour of Japan in early 1975, Miles Davis presented some of the most searing, electric fusion ever heard in concert. The performances on this 2CD set, from a soundboard recording for post-FM broadcast, hail from a January 22 gig at Shinjuku Kohseinenkin Hall in Tokyo. Staged ten days earlier than the February 1 shows at which...

"The cover image alone for this 1968 release speaks loudly and clearly of something different: it looks like some weird rock record. And while it's not exactly that, Miles in the Sky hints loudly at something new, an upstart sound that would upset jazz...

"Nefertiti, one of 1967's most interesting collections of music, is a landmark album and unquestionably one of the finest efforts by Miles and his superior cast of players. The album is a rarity for the group in a few ways- Miles does not contirubte a...

Of all the great, crazy-ass albums Miles released in his drug-addled but musically brilliant 1970s period, there was nothing as crazy or as utterly confoundingly brilliant as On The Corner.

Completely inspired by Sly and the Family Stone and contemporary, hard-rocking r'n'b, Miles made what I *think* he thought would be his commercial breakthrough, but he turned it all inside out and made the most conceptually reductionist funk record ever which was also anathema to the jazz world (I seem to...

Thrilled to see this long out of print electric Miles classic reissued! Get it while you can!

"This is the second of two performances from February 1975 at the Osaka Festival Hall in Japan. This is the evening show; the Columbia release Agharta was the afternoon show. Pangaea is comprised of two tracks, "Zimbabwe" and "Gondwana." Each is divided into two parts. The band here is comprised of Sonny Fortune on saxophones, Pete Cosey (who also played synth) and Reggie Lucas on guitars, Michael...

This is one of the better sounding live documents of Miles' short lived, 1972, electric nonet that combined elements of Indian music, electric jazz, funk and noise elements. Hard to believe Miles was making this amazing squall 50 years ago; the jazz world was a lot smaller then...

"In 1963, Miles Davis was at a transitional point in his career, without a regular group and wondering what his future musical direction would be. At the time he recorded the music heard on this CD, he was in the process of forming a new band, as can...

"In a very short time, this has quickly become one of my favorite Miles Davis CD's. This is unexpected in that this CD is from a time when Miles was transitioning band members without a whole lot of stability. The album has...

"May 1967 was the beginning of an amazing burst of studio creativity for Miles Davis; the first recordings in that burst are on this album. Sorcerer is even darker and moodier than its predecessor, Miles Smiles. (And even for a Miles Davis album...

Throughout 1969, Davis' touring band included Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, Dave Holland, and Jack DeJohnette; as the group never completed a studio recording, it has been subsequently characterized as the 'lost quintet' by many critics. In 1970 this line-up, augmented at times by Keith Jarrett and Steve Grossman albeit often without Shorter, performed a number of shows and released a number of live albums recorded at the Fillmore venues - both East and West, in New York and San Francisco respectively...

Miles Davis – Trumpet
Chick Corea – Electric Piano

“The last performance of the lost quintet. The 'third great quintet' by itself was never documented in the recording studio. Their European tour of 1969, represented on this new CD, is one of only two existing recordings of the group (editor’s note: NOT TRUE: there are nearly 2 dozen in varying sound quality); this is the final second set never...

Ace price on a great disc. This is 3 sessions from June, 1967, featuring Miles Davis (tpt); Wayne Shorter (ts); Herbie Hancock (p); Ron Carter (b); Tony Williams (d) and one session (a early, great lost 'proto-fusion' session) from 11/11/68 with Miles...

"He's so tied up in his music that even his friends don't understand what he's trying to do." Miles Davis on Coltrane.

Here’s one I never even heard until some time after it was reissued on CD and which I had put off hearing, as I was afraid it would be awful. I was wrong.
It's an extremely good 1970-style, English, proto-progressive album of songs featuring Graham Bell-electric piano, acoustic guitar, lead vocals, Geoffrey Peach-reeds, backing vocals, Alan Cartwright-bass, John Hedley-gutar and Brian Davison-drums (yes, Brian of The Nice and Refugee). If you like that very late 60s/very early 70s progressive/song...
