"After a trilogy of highly successful trio albums (“Changing Places”, “The Ground”, “Being There”), Tord Gustavsen branches off in new directions. His new band adds two players familiar to ECM listeners – bassist Mats Eilertsen and saxophonist Tore...

One of the 'new' stars of ECM and deservedly so. Really excellent, state-of-the-art languid piano trio music. It's also a fabulous recording!

"The second album by Norwegian pianist and composer Tord Gustavsen is another set of crystalline beauty.

Gustavson was the tremendous keyboardist for Wigwam in the 1st part of their career. This 2003 release is pretty much what it says it is, a organ-driven fusion band with Jukka's keyboards and voice, reeds, bass and drums. Most of it is pretty good, alt...

"The notion that Jochen Irmler and Gudrun Gut would one day merge the best of their two worlds was never quite to be expected. We hear Irmler's meandering, wistfully psychedelic organ sound, seeming to come from a different era. And we hear Gut's...

Destroying walls between art-rock, avant-squonk, jazz-core and beyond, the decade-old New York quartet Gutbucket is not only equally comfortable playing in front of 900 sweatily pogo-ing teenage skate-punks, a crowd of cosmic indie-psych freaks, on an...

Founded in 1999 and originally part of the very tail end of the legendary 'downtown sound" as one of the the last bands involved in the "Knitting Factory scene", performing a residency there, as well as having their first album released by the club's label, Gutbucket celebrated their 15 years in action in 2014 with a week long residency at another legendary venue, John Zorn's The Stone.

Dance, the group's 6th album, consists of all-new material, professionally recorded live at the club for that...

This is the second album by this great NY band who take the 'downtown sound' as pioneered in the 1980s by bands like Naked City, Curlew, Doctor Nerve and keep it current and fresh. I know you are buying this because you want to check them out since...

This was Gutbucket's 3rd album and the last before signing to Cuneiform. Anyone who enjoyed their more recent two on the label will find plenty more good things here!

Excellent, completely unknown French stick player who has put together an excellent, ECM-ish, mellow, jazz/rock album with a band that includes Alexis Drossos-saxophones, Jean-Marie Gerintes-percussion, harmonica, musicial saw, Jean-Philippe Rykiel-keyboards and Stephane Deschamps-piano. Good playing from everyone; the accent is not on the leader, but on the ensemble. Take a chance and discover something great!!

"After his great compositions for the London Jazz Composers Orchestra and the Barry Guy New Orchestra, Barry Guy has written a large scale work for a new international ensemble.

Guy's work The Blue Shroud is an hommage to the painting Guernica by Pablo Picasso. It is for the people of the Spanish town, who were victims of the Nazi German air force bombardment during the Spanish Civil War. Guy also wants us to remember the occasion in 2003, when the Guernica-tapestry at the UN Security Council was..
