"Sometimes, when the rhythm section is really cooking and everybody is together, this feeling of euphoria comes over you." Johnny Griffin.

"This is a fine continuation of Griffin's work from the late 1950's into the early 1960's. The sound is uniformly good ... clean and fairly crisp. The booklet (as usual from Real Gone Jazz) lists titles, dates and personnel. Griffin's style has been called muscular, hard-drivng, and relentless, and for once those terms apply. The albums included are:...

Hayley Griffiths - Vocals
Matheiu Spaeter - Guitar
Cagri Tozluoglu - Keyboards
Jordan Brown - Bass

“Alexandra Grimal’s new record is an exploration of her inner improvised language in resonance with the very special acoustic of the castle of Chambord. Refuge was recorded in the double revolution staircase in the castle of Chambord in September 2020.”

"Pianist, composer, and arranger Rachel Grimes has created a singular body of work, both as a solo artist and as a member of the group Rachel's, that negotiates a surprisingly graceful alliance between contemporary classical and indie rock."-AllMusic

This is a really lovely score for a film that is based on the composer's piano, as well as violin, flute, sax, and interspersed with Rachel's electronic / ambient sound design.

Not quite a decade ago, there was a new set from the newly reformed / revamped Grobschnitt, released as 2008 Live. It was recorded in Bonn and Menden Germany in May 2008 and it was really good (see below).
This newer version takes that live album, adds a bonus track from 2008 and then adds a second disc from the next year, which has a complete live version of Rockpommel's Land as well as many other vintage greats. They still have that sound and fans will be really happy with this one...

Many consider this, their fourth studio album,to be one of their main classics. Includes bonus studio tracks and entire second disc of bonus live performances from 1977-79!

"Grobschnitt were one of the crop of German bands that fell into the Krautrock category, mixing progressive rock influences with improvisational elements and humour to create a very compelling brand of music. The irreverence was evident in their music, but not at the cost of technical and compositional proficiency. All the...

The good news: This live recording of Grobschnitt with an orchestra is really excellent.
The bad news: It's only 14' long!

''Led by turntable wizard/guitarist/composer Otomo Yoshide, the fast & furious Ground Zero combine creative juxtapositions & oddball sampling with the raw power of a live six-piece band. It's a unbelievably wild ride.'' [Tzadik]

“Recorded in front of a smattering of people, the recording is as rough as the hairs on my chin, but it brings that touch of reality so much so that I could visualise myself as part of that audience. They are off, hungry dogs out of the trap, they are tenacious and they don’t let up, this is real power trio stuff and one by one they are knocking those songs right out of the park. It’s relentless. Hard blues rock at its best. Features the unusal lineup of Tony McPhee, Dave Anderson and Mick Jones.”-rym

First the bad news: The sound here ranges from bootleg (1969) to pretty good bootleg (1972), so if you are looking for ‘sonics’, you need to look elsewhere, as this is a bit of a disappointment in that are. Having said that, this, captures the original band in ripping form, especially the 1972 stuff, which at times, comes not too far from resembling the intensity of a bluesier 1971-72 Guru Guru.

Split is one of the best by this progressive blues band. I never heard The Groundhogs back in their early 70s heyday, but SPLIT was one of their classics and I have to report back that I wish that I had heard them then!

"If “mission creep” refers to a long-haul fatigue cited with increasingly regularity in the present political moment, DAVID GRUBBS imagines “creep mission” to be a talismanic utterance in the effort to turn this ship around. Creep Mission is an album of instrumental compositions with Grubbs’s effortlessly recombinant electric guitar at its core, and its m.o. is to go both deep and wide. The album goes deep in the sense that the guitar becomes the relentless, meditative focus of these songs without words...

"While time glides beneath Grydeland's fingers like a glacier dreaming of colder ages, Kaiser's guitar howls a song that cuts through bone and marrow. In the sun, the ice sparkles like a crystal palace, the danger of death disappears behind a fragile, plinking ringing sound that even begins to dance. Delicate on lace, not in clumsy boots. Followed by decelerated psychedelics in the jarring and flickering flow of iridescent freak waves, overwhelmed by the northern lights, whimpered darkly. Monotonous"...

"It is almost impossible to pigeonhole the legendary and unpredictable Gryphon, recently reformed nearly 40 years after a very successful spell throughout the 1970s, which included extensive touring in the States and Europe with Yes, Steeleye Span and Mahavishnu Orchestra.

Gryphon stunned their faithful following four decades later in 2018 when they released their sixth studio album, ReInvention, to huge acclaim. Anyone who...

Now you can get all four initial Gryphon albums all together in one place! While they are all pretty different, they are also all pretty great in differing ways! Highly recommended if you don’t already have them! Note that the track "Dubbel Dutch" from "Midnight Mushrumps" is missing due to time limitations.

Happily and shockingly darn great all-new album from the mighty (and mighty unique) Gryphon, who were last heard from on record over 40 years ago.
Featuring a mix of new and old personnel, this will not dissapoint fans, especially fans of their classic second release Midnight Mushrumps. Highly recommended!! ...
