"This one is very eagerly-awaited: it has been six years since Jan Garbarek’s last album as a leader (“In Praise of Dreams”). And, moreover, this double-album – recorded in Dresden’s Alter Schlachthof in October 2007 – is also the first-ever live set...

"There appear to be fewer and fewer musicians (Asian, European, American, Latin American) with whom Garbarek hasn't collaborated at some time. Where no collaboration is possible, he will happily doodle on top of already highly-polished works, as in the...

"Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek cut his teeth emulating John Coltrane and blowing gales through the muscular compositions of George Russell and open improvisations of Keith Jarrett. But since the mid 1980s, the saxophonist has been making an...

Jan Garbarek: tenor and soprano saxophones, wood flute
Kjell Johnsen: pipe organ

“Recorded in a Stockholm church in 1979, Aftenland documents a fascinating encounter between Jan Garbarek, improviser par excellence, and classical organist Kjell Johnsen. “Preparing and realizing Aftenland was one of the most interesting experiences in my entire career,” Johnsen has said. “A major artistic achievement”, wrote Contemporary Keyboard.”

"Top down, tunes up and cruising out of the Jersey suburbs into yr heart are Garcia Peoples and their debut LP "Cosmic Cash" on Beyond Beyond is Beyond. Originally a quartet (Tom Malach and Danny Arakaki on guitars, Cesar Arakaki on drums, Derek Spaldo on bass) but recently beefed up into a five-piece with PG Six (Tower Recordings, Wet Tuna) on keys, Garcia Peoples are just what our little psychedelic corner of the world needs right now &fun.
"Cosmic Cash" effortlessly heaves joy. The low-key vocal.

This collection of new classical Latin American work by the Cuban born, Miami based composer is a series of pieces that invoke an abstract expressionist sensibility set against a time free present. Repetition and slow evolution of materials result in a...

Chris Pitsiokos - alto saxophone, electronics
Violeta Garcia - cello

"This powerful first recording between NY alto extreme saxophonist Pitsiokos and Argentinian noise cellist Garcia lives up to its reputation. It is an unrelenting juxtaposition of screeches and squalls, of strings rubbed to their breaking point up against extreme reed skronks. Together they complement and contrast and create an organic noise that is quite thrilling."

Gianni Gebbia: Alto and Soprano Saxophones
Nils Wogram: Trombone
Xavier Garcia: Sampler



"Gianni Gebbia, Xavier Garcia und Nils Wogram:

Second, very good release by this Dutch musician who charmed us all with his debut release, Cabinet Of Curiosities, not very long ago.

The third from this multi-instrumentalist talent. This time it’s all instrumental and you can hear a good bit of the influence of early Bo Hansson, most notably Sagan Om Ringen in this!

"But ‘Somnium’ is not pastiche. There are touches of space rock, krautrock, prog and ambient, yes, but what does that really tell you?

So, I’m looking through the tons of new release solicitations that I look through on a weekly basis, trying not to miss anything, but also with the knowledge that there’s only so much time in my day to pour over this stuff.
And I see the name Julien Gasc and it rings and bell and I rack my brain and I remember that Julien is one of the members of Aquaserge and who I think of as ‘their main voice’, in terms of the vocals.
This is his second solo album and while the label plays up his connection to.

Julien is one of the members of Aquaserge and who I think of as ‘their main voice’, in terms of the vocals. Consequently, anything he does sounds like Aquaserge to me (a completely great thing)
This is his third solo album and it sounds like it could be a more stripped down, poppier Aquaserge album or demo sketches for Aquaserge.

“Confession, fiction, and observation. This is how the trajectory drawn by Julien Gasc seems to evolve from one album to the next. While Cerf, Biche et Faon took...

"Former Planet Mu affiliate Christopher Reeves continues his electronic journey as The Gasman, delivering his umpteenth album in 13 years. Aeriform isn't far removed from work by other Mu luminaries such as founder Mike Paradinas' strangely engaging bob-and-weave synth-antipop or a certain Richard James, truth be told.
Essentially though, Reeves mines a far more retro seam than his counterparts - titles like Syntax, Trip and Zports suggest there's an element of geek and a love of the ZX Spectrum, BBC..

"Christopher Reeves AKA The Gasman has been releasing music since 2003 and this is his twelfth album to date. Although he is known more for his experimental electronic sound this album has a more classical feel to it reminiscent of people like Philip...

"As the title suggests this is a continuation of the first Gasman album on Believers roast (Hiding place) This is more of the same, rhythmic passionate piano music that has been treated in different ways to create different atmospheres."

"Yonatan Gat is a guitarist, producer and experimental composer based in NYC. Gat became known as one of the world's top performers as founder and guitarist of Monotonix, hailed by SPIN as "the most exciting live band in rock’n’roll,” with concerts that destroyed the border between performer and audience, and were controversial enough to get them banned from playing their home country of Israel.
Gat then relocated to New York City. He began recording and performing as a solo artist, and in 2014....

You couldn’t grow up in the DC area in the 70s, 80s or 90s and be interested in music and not be aware of, and in awe of, the legend that was guitarist Danny Gatton.
There was nothing like seeing him live, continuously knock it out of the ballpark without even breaking a sweat, but this, his first of two major label releases, is one of his best albums.

“After years of knocking around the Washington, D.C.-area circuit, local guitar legend Danny Gatton finally got to cut his first album for...

Stephen Gauchi, tenor sax/Nate Wooley, trumpet/Mike Bisio, double bass/Ingebrigt Haaker Flaten, double bass.

"The name “Basso Continuo” refers not to early music but rather to the double double bass backbone Mike Bisio and Ingebrigt Haker...

“By way of introduction, Gauci parades his easygoing burly tenor saxophone, blending emphatic motifs amid roller coaster lines in a limber double act with Filiano’s nimble-fingered stylings, which fuse melody with rhythmic attack on the opening ‘Epee’. That’s followed by a similarly involved pairing of cornet and bass at the outset of ‘Ghosting’, before Gauci joins to inaugurate a spirited three-way interaction. It’s immediately obvious that as a group they are fully formed, missing nothing, a feeling...
