“The music of Italian cellist Francesco Guerri obliterates the line between contemporary classical music and free improvisation, sculpting spontaneous invention into startling, unpredictable compositions. On his striking third album, Su Mimmi non si spara!, Guerri presents a dozen innovative pieces that span a wide range of stylistic approaches and technical challenges, invigorated by the physicality of his virtuosic playing and the deep emotional bond he maintains with his instrument.Su Mimmi non si...

“Samurai of Prog's Bernard and Pörsti this time join forces with Alessandro di Benedetti and Rafael Pacha and a sub plot of many talented musicians to bring us this splendid follow-up to their 2020 debut release. As standard nothing is spared either musically or artistically in the making of the Seacrestoy project. 10/10 once again!”

"From drone to riff and from riff to desintegration and back again to some sort of form – those forms and others, in a perpetual transmutation. The new project by Portuguese guitarist Luís Lopes (Humanization 4tet, Lisbon-Berlin Trio, Garden, Lisbon Freedom Unit, Big Bold Back Bone, duos with Jean-Luc Guionnet and Julien Desprez, and more) associates him one more time with musicians from other countries, namely..

"Welcome to Ulrich Gumpert's world; a world of hidden beauties, small treasures and bizarre inventions.

The first album, originally released in 1980, by this Turkmenian cross-culture folk and new music jazz/fusion ensemble led by drummer Rishad Shafi. First time on CD.

"The Gunesh Ensemble was founded in 1970 in Ashkhabad, Turkmen Soviet Socialist Republic, then part of the Soviet Union. They started out as a vocal group with supporting musicians from Turkmenistan State Radio and TV. Later several young musicians came to play with them and the band's music became much more modern. The group...

"Swedish multi-instrumentalist Rikard Sjöblom is pleased to announce his new album under the Gungfly moniker, ‘Alone Together’. It follows an extremely productive past few years, whether it be working with English progressive rockers Big Big Train, or taking the lead with Gungfly.
Rikard comments: “I started writing these songs about a year ago but then it took some time to get started with the production because I had two tours lined up, one with Big Big Train in November and then opening solo for...

"The fourth studio album from Rikard Sjöblom (Big Big Train, Beardfish) in his Gungfly guise.
Rikard comments, “Musically, what can I say? This is Prog, but I want to be free to move in whatever direction the music wants to go and I happily go exploring where it wants to take me. Even though there are a few softer songs and sections, most of the album turned out to be a rocker; a collection of hard rock songs with lots of tricky parts, some heavier moments and some downright jazzy elements too!”

"You might know Rikard Sjöblom as the mutli-instrumentalist madman behind the microphone of the now-legendary Beardfish, who sang about everything from personal loss to dreams of sneaking into the backstreets of some sleazy '70s disco club. Wielding his keyboard like an 88-key progressive rock machine gun and a shoulder-slung guitar much in the same manner, Sjöblom truly was the face of the band. Beardfish came to an end in 2016, leaving room for new solo endeavors for Sjöblom.

This was recorded in Trilok's 'jazz/rock' period, when he was putting out pretty great work for CMP. Never before released!

"Before Trilok's music gradually changed to Worldmusic in 1996, he was deep-rooted in Jazz.The conjunction of Indian Rhythms with the elements of modern Jazz led to extraordinary aural experiences, impressively documented on this concert recording. Trilok's matchless grooves, precised punchy, are blending well with the widely textures, far from whirling Indian esoteric."

“God Is A Drummer is the new studio album by master drummer Trilok Gurtu. Throughout his illustrious career, master drummer and world music pioneer Gurtu has stood at the confluence of where Indian classical music, Western jazz and funk, African music, and Brazilian music meet. It's been part of his modus operandi for five decades -- making music that defies easy categorization. On God Is A Drummer, his 20th recording as a leader, the uncommonly open-minded musician pays tribute to some fallen colleagues...

An excellent sounding period recording from their 10/25/70 performance at the Essen Pop & Blues Festival. This is just after their great 1st album UFO was released, and captures them at an early, heady peak; imagine the furthest out that a power trio c...

One of the greatest power trios ever, this is the even crazier second release of early 1970's style hard rock/progressive/psychedelic madness by Ax Genrich-guitar/vocals, Uli Trepte-bass/vocals & Mani Neumeier-drums/vocals.
Like your favorite Cream record with it's brain destroyed by LSD. Contains the classic "Bo Diddley". Highly recommended!

Well, here's a title that tells you exactly what you are getting. Two shows - on DVD and CD - by the legendary and long-lived Guru Guru, recorded nearly 30 years apart.

"In 1976, with six albums and eight years after being founded the German Krautrock legend Guru Guru was the first German band to be invited to play at Rockpalast. Guru Guru with their outstanding drummer Mani Neumeier have always been considered the perfect hippie band. Every festival of alternative music from Burg Herzberg to...

“When Guru Guru was founded in 1968 in the year of the student revolt, everyone would have reaped a weary smile that would have predicted that Guru Guru would still exist after 50 years, or have played a decisive role in shaping the music scene during that time.
Today, Guru Guru is one of the longest-serving bands on the planet, along with the Rolling Stones, and Mani Neumeier and his gurus stand for rock music that has survived all trends and fashions and that still goes beyond borders today. That...

Monster power trio 1970-style hard rock/progressive/psychedelic madness by Ax Genrich-guitar/vocals, Uli Trepte-bass/vocals & Mani Neumeier-drums/vocals. Their first album. Like your favorite Cream record with it's brain destroyed by LSD. Highly recommended!

Really good (not professional, but genuinely very good) quality live album recorded November 4, 1972. This is recorded just after the band's peak, as Ulli Trepte has left and Bruno Schaab (a fine player) is his replacement here, but the repertoire is still all taken from the 1st 3 albums, with really long versions of Oxymoron, Baby Cake Walk and Ooga Booga. Ax Genrich and Mani Neumeier play great as always. Not as essential as they once were, as this feels a little tentative, but it's still a great...

This is something a bit special as original Guru Guru members guitarist Ax Genrich and drummer Mani Neumeier with Guy Segers, the monster bassist from mid-period Univers Zero! While you won't necessarily be confused into thinking that this is UFO...

Mats Gustafsson – alto, tenor and baritone saxophones
Jason Adasiewicz – vibraphone and balafon

"Discussing this impending studio date, the indefatigable saxophonist Mats Gustafsson and intrepid vibraphonist Jason Adasiewicz decided to compose new pieces for one another. The resulting tracks – which also include a hallucinogenic arrangement of “Timeless,” dedicated to its composer, the recently deceased guitarist John Abercrombie – show a markedly different side of both musicians.
