“Dhope from Paderborn played progressive rock in the style of the seventies and were thus almost a bit out of time when punk and new wave had spread. Their only release, the LP "Musical exhibitions" from 1978, brings almost exclusively their own songs, is nearly impossible to find, is traded today at about 500€ to 700€ in mint condition and wa

Featuring John McLaughlin, Al DiMeola and Paco de Lucia, this is the great guitar trio's classic original recording.

"The sticker on the cover of this cd announces its Di Meola's return to solid body electric guitar. I think this statement led many people think this was going to be Land of the Midnight Sun 2 or Elegant Gypsy 2. It is not and it is not meant to be...

Al is a very fine guitarist, although personally I've found him to be a bit 'bloodless' at times. But his love for Astor Piazolla's music and the music of the tango in general brings out some of his most appealing (for me anyway) aspects. This is Al's...

"With his acclaimed current studio album 'OPUS', Al di Meola not only topped the TOP 5 of the Official German Jazz Album Charts and burst to #1 position in the US Contemporary Jazz Album Charts, but once again proved his status as a 'guitar superstar'. His curriculum vitae is full of exciting musical moments and incredible works and he still finds ways to challenging himself: he is a jack-of-all-trades, who does not take a real break in supposedly quieter times. Al di Meola is burning for his passion...

"Guitarist Al di Meola's second record as a leader is generally an explosive affair, although it does have a fair amount of variety. With Jan Hammer or Barry Miles on keyboards, electric bassist Anthony Jackson, drummer Lenny White (Steve Gadd takes...

Includes five complete albums:

Two electric albums by guitarist Al and his band. These were originally released in 1980 and 1982 respectively. The reason to buy this issue is that BGO always do a much better remastering job than SONY/Columbia and this is the best sounding versions...

About a decade ago, Diagonal seemingly came out of nowhere with their splendid debut album. A few years later, they returned for an even better second. Then silence until now...

"Less is more’ is somewhat of a cliché but just ask Diagonal whether that rings true. Seven years on from 2012’s The Second Mechanism – the group’s second LP following their eponymous debut – they return as suddenly as they seemed to disappear, with arguably their finest effort to-date, Arc. It’s a record that maintains...

“Diagonal's celebrated self-titled 2008 debut captured much of this spirit-a super-human rhythm section on which danced a heady brew of organ, sax, synth and twin guitars - but there was nothing quite like being at one of their shows.
Their performance at the Roadburn Festival in April 2008 was Diagonal at their very finest. Finally gaining a release, fourteen years later, the recording is evidence of a young band, hungry and willing to take risks.”

José Dias guitar

"Here’s a solo guitar album that matters and makes a point. And here’s a good surprise, marking a turn in the musical career of Portuguese guitarist José Dias (also a researcher of the Contemporary Arts Department at Manchester Metropolitan University), who has been until recently committed to inoculate a sense of modernity in the tradition of jazz. The focus now goes way beyond the post-bop format of his previous records, either because the vocabulary is related to rock...

"When Os Mutantes called it a day at the end of the 1970's, guitar player Sergio Dias launched a solo career, in search of new ways and musical directions. Soon he left for the USA where he would live until 1985, playing with musicians such...

"A true revolutionary, composer/performer/improviser Robert Dick has literally redefined the flute for our age. He has worked with a wide range of musicians from classical, jazz and improvised music backgrounds including Steve Lacy, Evan Parker, George Lewis and many others. Here he focuses in on the elusive contrabass flute, and uses a wide range of extended techniques including multiphonics, percussive effects, circular breathing and more! A unique and heartfelt CD of..

“The interaction between players is perfect. Entrances, exits, the spaces between sound and silence, all meeting at the right moment. This is great human music that will stand up to any dark forces in any universe.”
 –William Parker


2020's breathtaking trio date, Expanding Light, featuring his 30+ year colleague, maestro alto saxophonist Rob Brown, and young firebrand bassis

“On this breathtaking debut the new Whit Dickey Trio shines a powerful collective invention. Expanding Light teams the veteran drummer with one of his most long-standing collaborators, saxophonist Rob Brown, and for the first time with the young firebrand bassist Brandon Lopez. The album maintains a visceral ferocity even at it's most abstract and quieter moments, a sonic territory that the drummer refers to as "free grunge", influenced as much by Nirvana at their finest as by the holistic...

“Whit Dickey has been a quiet but brilliant presence on the New York avant-jazz scene since his discographical debut in 1991 on the legendary Matthew Shipp Trio album, Circular Temple (1992).
In concert and on recordings in groups led by Shipp, David S. Ware, Ivo Perelman, Joe Morris, and Rob Brown, he built a reputation for distinctively space-filled, subtle rhythmic support...

“Whit Dickey guides a formidable new quartet through deep waters on Root Perspectives. As he states, "I get into music not just by playing but by accessing a vibration." This work gets to the heart of what he means by that elliptical phrase. It is the latest recording from his TAO Forms label, which since it's 2020 founding has released some of the freshest material in recent memory...

I've had the great pleasure of working with cornetist Kirk in Ideal Bread and seeing him nearly a dozen times over the years in various bands.

Oh, and one more, because of your exquisite use of feedback: Alvin Lucier’s I am sitting in a room. I also want to tell you how much I appreciate the detail in the sound, especially in the noise. And your presence! It's as...

“CHORD III draws the listener further into the expansive chasms of sound that were excavated by their first two releases. Featuring the electric guitar work of Nick Didkovsky (Doctor Nerve, Fred Frith Guitar Quartet, Vomit Fist) and Tom Marsan (Delta Garage), CHORD III takes the listener into realms of brutality and at times an almost spiritual transcendence.
Recorded live in real-time without studio overdubs, CHORD III follows the duo's tradition of using amp distortion, density, feedback, and....

“For more than 40 years Don Dietrich has been one of the three musicians in Borbetomagus, whose music has been described as an unrelenting, take-no-prisoners wall of sound.
Camille Dietrich grew up in the crucible of her father's free playing. As a cellist she shares his passionate intensity and brings a playful freshness which Don feeds off. This is the stunning follow-up to their 2017 Pica Disc release.”

Andrew Trim - Guitar
Kurt Schweitz - Bass
Devin Drobka - Drums

"This introspective trio, led by Chicago guitarist Andrew Trim, celebrates the release of a live album recorded at Constellation last fall by returning to the scene of the crime. The other two members, Milwaukee drummer Devin Drobka and local bassist Kurt Schweitz, have a precise, easygoing rapport; they generally play with restraint, opting for slow grooves that allow Trim’s warm, vibrato-rich tone to resonate with the woody.
