"Assuming you are familiar with the remarkable discography of saxophonist Charles Gayle, the first thing you are bound to notice about this recording is that it is somewhat less intense..

Solo studio recordings by Gayle on tenor sax, bass clarinet, piano & drums. [Victo]

“Charles Gayle is a saxophonist, pianist, sometimes a clown and radical musical performer wrapped into the body of a humble person living in Downtown Manhattan since the 1960s. As this set attests to, it is sometimes hard to predict what he will do on stage... In all his musical (and personal) life Charles Gayle has remained outside of any form of mainstream, carving his own singular path. There is no player on the scene today with the emotional wallop of Charles Gayle.
John Edwards is a true...

"This album is not for everyone, but allow me to describe it so you know if this "shoe fits" you or not.
For those that have patience for complex songs with several structures, this record has excellent production, and many intricately placed and layered sounds.
Some would likely find some parts a bit repetitive, but with some of the repetition, new song structures get layered on...

“This is the first official reissue of this extremely rare album, originally released in 1978 on the Brutkasten label. A very varied fusion album, 'Im Tal Der Emmen' blends Embryo and Zappa/Mothers like rock and jazz mixtures, with a rich instrumental palette, full of solos and invention. Mostly it intended to sound like an instrumental Out Of Focus (Freeman Brothers in 'The Crack In The Cosmic Egg'). The album has this charming kraut/fusion style.
The sextet line-up resulted in a very rich sound...

Very hard to find Italian release from 1989, which has improvising saxist Gebbia on soprano, alto and baritone sax and Casio digital horn, with Lelio Gianetto-double bass and Vittorio Villa-drums. [PVD]

''From the 1st fluttering notes, Gebbia (alto sax), Miriam Palma (vocals/perc), & Vittorio Villia (drums/perc) joined for music full of charm & invention. Gebbia has managed to absorb both his native Sicilian folk music & the playing of saxists like Ev...

“In 1969, I was commissioned to make all the music and organized noises for nineteen looped films to be run in the British Pavilion at Expo 70 in Osaka, Japan. The overall concept was to have all the films running in fixed positions so that the individual visitors would ‘mix’ their audio and visual experience by the speed and direction of their movement through and around the environment.
Since most of the ninety-second films...

Probably my personal favorite of their early period work, this 1972 symphonic/progressive album should need very little introduction.

All the pieces are in place now: Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Mike Rutherford. Includes some of their best early period work and this 1971 symphonic/progressive album is truly a classic.

The last one with Peter Gabriel, the first Genesis album I owned, and possibly their finest moment, if a bit longer than it absolutely needed to be. This is tougher edged than their earlier, more symphonic/progressive albums, but a fantastic work that...

“On 17th December 1974 the group performed at the Auditorium Theater in Rochester, NY.”

The first 'real' Genesis album, and an early (1970) classic of symphonic/progressive rock.

Second by the quartet of Collins, Hackett, Rutherford, Banks and another really good one. There would be a double live album from this album's tour and then Hackett would leave, so I think we'll leave off our stocking of their releases at this point too!

This includes two excellent quality (for the time period) live tracks by the original Guru Guru lineup from 1971 and 1972. It's only 13 minutes, but jeez, they were magnificent then... Also included is all of his 1975 solo album Highdelberg, which incl...

Gentle Giant's 2nd album, and, for the time it was released in 1971, an extremely adventurous rock work (and one with a stupendously ugly cover!).

I remember getting this around 1973/74 and reading the liner notes and devouring the following: "It is our goal to expand the frontiers of popular music at the risk of being very unpopular. We have recorded each composition with one thought - that it should be unique, adventurous and fascinating. It has taken every shred of our combined musical and...

After In A Glass House, Giant and their record label made a concerted effort to 'break the band' in the USA, and the band toured here constantly. Signing with Capitol, they released 3 great studio albums that gave the band a slightly more rockified and accessible face, without losing a whit of the complexity of their earlier work.
Free Hand was their seventh album and was the middle one of that trio and it is one of many extremely fine works in their catalog. It rocks like hell and incredibly...

"Following last year‘s highly successful release of the Steven Wilson remix of ‘The Power And The Glory’, Steven has now remixed one of the fans’ all-time favourite Gentle Giant albums: ‘Octopus’."

The band's fourth album, and for me this was their first really incredible work. This was the last by the six piece band and their first with drummer John Weathers, who became a very important part of their sound. It also seems to me that this was the album where they took their 'rock' background...

In this ‘post physical’ age that we occupy, this 2 CD set is the only away to own the original mixes (i.e. not the Steven Wilson remixes) of these two 1972 classics by Gentle Giant on CD.
The fact that this is on BGO, who always do a very good job mastering for CD from the licensed masters is ‘merely’ a bonus.

This is the stereo CD version.

"Following the highly successful releases of the Steven Wilson's remixes of The Power And The Glory and Octopus, Steven has now remixed a specially curated selection of songs and compositions from the band's first three albums (Giant, Acquiring the Taste, Three Friends) presented in both 5.1 surround sound and stereo.
Only a few songs from each of the band's first three albums are known to exist as multi-tracks, with the rest presumably lost, and it is these...

“Presented here, the definitive reissue of a lauded and misunderstood Krautrock album, German Oak's Down in the Bunker. The release has been fetishized and demonized, lauded and misunderstood for nearly four decades. In this definitive reissue of the album, the German Oak trio -- together again after 30 years apart -- have approved the remastering of their 70s music; finally tell the story behind the creation of their dark, brooding album -- and the occult-obsessed record collector behind the original...

A very well known German underground album, which is most famous for the circumstances of its recording in a 'bunker-like' environment. Includes 3 non-lp bonus tracks.

"We all know that Gershwin was a brilliant composer, but these rare 1924 piano rolls reveal a dazzling pianist as well! He plays Rhapsody in Blue; Swanee, and Walkin' the Dog, while other performers do Let's Call the Whole Thing Off; An American in Paris (four hands); S'Wonderful; Oh, Lady Be Good; Embraceable You, and more!"

Released on Proper, a great UK label who do an amazing job in terms of packaging, presentation and especially in terms of sonics. This is important, basic repertoire material. A great place to hear some of his best stuff and at a amazing...

“Live In Dusseldorf 1960 by the Stan Getz Quartet is an original master concert recording from March 28th, 1960, recorded at the Rheinhalle in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Stan Getz, born Stanley Gayetski (February 2, 1927-June 6, 1991) was an American jazz saxophonist. Playing primarily the tenor saxophone, Getz was known as "The Sound" because of his warm, lyrical tone, his prime influence being the

Excellent early bop recordings from the saxist with THE SOUND.

JSP Records are the best label overall I've encountered who work in the field of releasing CDs of old jazz and blues recordings. JSP's releases typically undergo extensive (and very expensive) careful and tasteful manual cleanup, and they have become rightly renowned for the highest possible sound quality considering the source material. These releases all come packaged in full jewel cases (no little paper sleeves here) and have full personnel and reasonable liner notes. Highly...

"Over the hour's worth of music and sound that makes In Stormy Nights, Ghost apply their folk sounds, improvisations and avant-garde constructions to a savage evocation. In the world we live in today, we can only imagine what this means. And we agree...

Great price on a excellent document by this long-standing Japanese new-psychedelic/progressive band. The CD is almost an hour long and the DVD is 90' and is in stereo and 5.1 surround...

"The Ghost LP is one of the most fabulous UK psych/prog albums. This Birmingham band featured guitarist Paul Eastment, previously in The Velvett Fogg. The album, originally released back in 1970 on the Gemini label in the UK and in 1971 on Exit/Ekipo...

“Ghost Of The Machine formed in January 2021 when five former members of This Winter Machine — Graham Garbett (guitars), Mark Hagan (keyboards and piano), Stuart McAuley (bass, Moog pedals and Mellotron), Andy Milner (drums) and Scott Owens (guitars) — joined forces with Charlie Bramald (flautist for Nova Cascade, and former lead vocalist for all-eras prog tribute Harmony of Spheres).
Taking the best elements from their previous endeavours and key influences such as Rush, Marillion and Genesis...

This is the 1st release by Ghost Rhythms, coming out in 2007, five years before Sept Cercles, what I had originally thought was their (awesome) debut.
I know the band has mixed feelings about this one and it's definitely not as assured as what came after, but this is still a very, very good electric jazz/avant progressive debut. If you have and love their others, you'll love this too.
On this release they are an octet and as the band said to me in their very first email, "Our music is a blend...

“Here are several pieces about imaginary mountains found on old maps.
It is dedicated to all who tried to climb their inner mountain, especially to Xavier Garnerin, writer, and friend.”

This is the fifth full-length from this fabulous band from Paris, who, for my money, are consistently one of the most exciting and interesting mid-sized, modern, electric jazz / jazz-rock ensembles out there. The writing and the playing from these folks is consistently exciting, engaging and tuneful....
