The Nudes are something of an avant supergroup, with Chris Cutler, Amy Denio, & Swiss guitarist Wadi Gysi. Energetic & fun punk/folk/jazz/art-rock songs; these will make fans of Chris' & Amy's work very happy.

"As a jazz band, e.s.t. created some of the most popular, enduring, forward-thinking and simply enjoyable music the genre has seen for many years. Over the course of a dozen albums released through ACT, both studio and live sessions, Esbjorn Svensson, Dan Berglund and Magnus Öström captured the hearts and minds of jazz fans with their innovative and imaginative approach to the classic piano trio setting.
The first ever European band to feature on the front cover of US jazz bible Downbeat, they were...

Earth and Fire were a very long lived Dutch band, who recorded from 1969 onward, with their best known work being in the early/mid 1970's. They were led by the Koerts brothers of Chris-guitars and Gerard-keyboards, and fronted by singer Jenney Kaagman....

Earth and Fire were an early 70's Dutch progressive band. This 1971 album was their 2nd release, and is generally agreed by all to be their best. The band featured vocalist Jerney Kaagman, who has a clear, soaring voice similar in overall sound to Anni...


“The music of Bill Bruford's Earthworks on this CD is quite unusual. The multi-themed originals feature top-notch playing by the quartet (Bruford on drums and electronic percussion, Django Bates on keyboards, peck horn and trumpet, Iain Ballamy on reeds and bassist Tim Harries) that looks toward Ornette Coleman; at times (Ballamy's tenor sometimes recalls Dewey Redman) while traveling its own singular path. Full of unpredictability, subtle mood changes, touches of eccentric funk and a surprisingly...


This is an English language release of the group's first album, Jatekok. It may have existed before this issue, but I certainly never saw it before this CD version which just arrived! This includes two bonus tracks, "Sirens" and "The Tones Of Truth"...

East were one of the best known names in Hungarian progressive rock & symphonic rock in the 1980s (and also one of the very best). Longtime progrock fans and Waysiders will remember classic releases like Huseg, Jatekok and A Szerelem Sivataga.

Well, if you remember those releases, then this is for you, as this live recording covers those three classics, all in complete form!

This album was recorded with additional orchestral musicians and was recorded on April 24, 2014 at the Palace of...

Robert F. Graettinger was one of the strangest, most adventurous and little known composers and arrangers of the mid 20th century.
He was visible as one of Stan Kenton's arrangers circa 1948-1953, when Kenton had to let him go because his music was so unpopular.
His complete recorded work for Stan Kenton (about an hour) was all reissued on a (now out of print) CD called "City Of Glass", which I would highly recommend.
Graettinger was a tall thin man, born in 1923 who was famous among the...

Originally released a full decade ago (my, time flies whether or not you are having fun!) and out of print for a number of years, the band reprinted it, adding a new, 10' track which should entice you into hopefully being interested in the fact that...

"Edensong is a progressive rock quintet from New York City. The band's self-released 2008 debut "The Fruit Fallen" was hailed as a "masterpiece" by critics, and helped to pave the way for live shows and notable festival appearances throughout North America.
At over 70 minutes of new music, their 2016 followup, "Years in the Garden of Years" is even more ambitious than it's predecessor, and will be sure to appeal to fans of both classic progressive rock and metal. The concept album features an...

A fine, 1960 session from a fine Los Angeles tenor man who was also one of the earlier West Coast boppers who never received his due. This session lay unreleased for 35 years! And it’s a minor classic of hard bop, larger ensemble writing!

“The liner notes written by Kirk Silsbee tell a tale easily as intriguing as the fine music on this CD. Producer Lester Koenig asked Teddy Edwards to assemble a large ensemble of lesser known jazz musicians from Los Angeles to record originals and new...

The first, very rare album by this well known Austrian sextet (vocals, piano/organ, guitar, flute/sax, bass & drums) was almost totally unknown until this reissue; most people think that their 1976 release "One Nighter" is their first. But this 1971...

Eela Craig were from Austria and are lumped in with the German groups because...well, how many progressive rock Austrian groups were there anyway? The band was formed by keyboardist Hubert Bognermayer in 1971 and released a very rare first album that...

"Eela Craig from Linz are known for their symphonic art rock with lots of organ and Mellotron. An original copy of their first album from 1971 is today a collectors’ item that’s hardly affordable.
After releasing three more CDs and throwing out Hubert Bognermayr, they set up a sinfully expensive sound studio in a former farm, which also became their home. The recordings for ”Virgin oiland” were thus made unhurriedly in a relaxed environment during two months of intensive work. The Schlote concert...

"Eerie Wanda isn’t a person, but rather the name given to the relentlessly memorable recorded results of an album delivered by Croatian/Dutch singer-songwriter Marina Tadic, with a little help from her (incredibly talented) friends, including (but not limited to) the phenomenal rhythm section of Jacco Gardner’s band.

While the word “eerie” isn’t the adjective that springs to mind most readily when listening to “Hum,” there are several others eager to take its place – beautiful, striking and...

"Saxophonist Florian Egli presents with his band 'Weird Beard' his debut on Intakt Records. Deeply rooted in the jazz tradition Weird Beard creates with stylistic openness an independent and characterful music in the undogmatic field of contemporary jazz. Everything Moves is a characterful album with a strong pulling power and manages to combine lyrical passages with the unpredictable."...

Active and releasing records for at least 25 years, Egoband are an Italian four piece who formerly had a number of releases on Mellow. This is their first new release in 16 years!
Their music is a cross between neo-prog and Rock Progressivo Italiano, with especially strong keyboards.

Markus Eichenberger clarinet & bassclarinet
Daniel Studer double bass

"Improvisation assumes a fresh experience, an unfamiliarity with what is to come, a disruption of expectations. How much more intense and disorienting the experience becomes in the music of Markus Eichenberger and Daniel Studer. Each one has an impressive résumé of musical adventures, but as a duo their music expresses special qualities and asks challenging questions. Suspended offers no customary structures, no consistent.

"Trumpeter Mathias Eick, in the first album released under his own name, focuses all the qualities that have made him a musician to be reckoned with in and around jazz of the last decade. The Door is distinguished by vaulting lyricism and clear-edged...

"Mathias Eick’s intensely melodic trumpet occupies the centre-stage in this album of self-penned tunes which will appeal to an audience beyond “jazz”. Against the powerful backdrops offered by his sleek, modern band, driven by two drummers, he delivers...
