“[This] is music made at a high level, but with an accessibility and humor that makes it cracking entertainment as much as high art.” – The Big Takeover

"Gibbs music is full of intriguing inner detail that does not deflect from the ultimate destiny of his pieces." – BBC Music Magazine

"Mike Gibbs' ingenious arrangements suggest a pop art incarnation of a traditional big band...

“Michael Gibbs is a composer, conductor, arranger and producer as well as a trombonist and keyboardist, known for his collaborations with Gary Burton, and for his ability to utilize rock elements in orchestral jazz.
Festival '69 is an historic concert performance, previously unreleased, providing unique insight into Gibbs' artistry prior to his recording career proper (his debut album was released in 1970).
Assembling a big band boasting the cream of contemporary British Jazz, Gibbs connected...

“The music of Michael Gibbs remains woefully under-recorded, even as the composer hits his mid-70s.... Inspired by Olivier Messiaen as much as Gil Evans, his music is luxurious, complex but accessible, and driven by rock rhythms and electric...

“So much came from my association with Mike... He went from being my hero to a friend, and he’s always been my teacher... I’ve always fantasized about doing something with him adapting some of my music.” – Bill Frisell....

Wonderful, archival (yes, the 90s is now 'archival') Brit-jazz release as 7 John Scofield compositions (and 4 from Gibbs) are given the Gibbs band-arrangement treatment. Especially notable for fans of guitarist Scofield, who plays wonderfully here!

"Another unique Dusk Fire celebration of British jazz heritage on this first ever release of recordings taken from composer Mike Gibbs and guitarist John Scofield's 1991 band tour.

Philip Gibbs acoustic & electric guitars

The instrumentation sometimes suggests a folk approach, without being "folky" per se.

"This features the guitar in the most unlikely pairs with cornemeuse, tenor and soprano saxophone, and border pipes. Unlike Paul Dunmalls previous duo with Paul Rogers, Folks is completely open though each...

Since 1973 Jon Gibson has been making startlingly beautiful solo music for saxophone and flute that owes nothing to the jazz tradition. One of the original musicians for the first generation minimalists, Jon is the only player to have been a member of ...

A lost relic of the late days of the initial burst of American minimalism found and presented to the world! "Jon Gibson (b. 1940) is one of the less frequently mentioned pioneering composers of minimal music and is probably best known as a founding member of the Philip Glass Ensemble. Gibson also holds the unique distinction of having performed with Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and La Monte Young (as a member of the Theatre of Eternal Music), in addition to Glass, the four composers widely regarded as the...

Gibson is a long time performer of avant music (who else played in the premiers of "In C", "Einstein On The Beach" & "Drumming"?) who has spent over 25 years in Philip Glass' ensemble. This reissues his 1st album (originally released on Philip Glass' Chatham Square label in the 1970s) as well as some unissued material.
"The original tracks were two long compositions: Visitations I - II, that Gibson describes as 16 multi-track-textured environmental soundscapes. The music presents several layers of...

Strangely enough, this new ambient / electronic album (and even more so, The Evening Falls, the previous one by KJG) reminds me, more than anyone else I've heard, of the electronic music of Piero Milesi!

"A piece of intricate scales and moods, by turn streaming with the quiet flow of a small meandering rill, then suddenly veering off into an oceanic kind of tumult, In The Fields Of Nothing was conceived as a proper film soundtrack with its rhythmic ebb-and-flow and deep sense of immersion...

Strangely enough, this ambient / electronic album reminds me, more than anyone else I've heard, of the electronic music of Piero Milesi!

"On The Evening Falls, he deviates from his more beat-infused work and explores vast aural landscapes with an intricately woven tapestry of swelling string drones, shimmering pedal steel, and minimalist piano motives. The first strictly ambient solo offering from this incredibly versatile composer and musician reveals a delicate sense for rich, ruminant...

Matt Otto - Tenor Saxophone
Storm Nilson - Guitar
Adam Benjamin - Piano
Tomas Fujiwara - Drums
Richard Lloyd Giddens, Jr. - Bass

"Although Giddens conceived this recording as a showcase for each musician, what one notices immediately is the brilliant sound that each musician has on his instrument thus achieving the beautiful sound the band creates as a whole. Their ensemble performance has a strength, maturity and cohesiveness that derives from knowing one another well, and...


“THE GIFT first made an impact on my musical consciousness when I heard the majestic CD "Awake And Dreaming" thirteen years ago. That fabulous debut immediately made me their devoted fan. Ever since I always can rely upon Mike Morton and cohorts, because they deliver the top notch records again and again. Their latest disc 'Antenna' (2019) is no exception. Based on a scheme of clever variations, the emotion laden melodious music sounds like a medley of contrasting influences superbly glued together...

If you like Ethiopian pop music, Gigi, who is a fine vocalist (and also the wife of Bill Laswell) is one of the bigger names to emerge in the 00s from the scene.

“For fans of Gil Evans, Miles Davis & Jazz! "Monday Nights" is not only the first studio recording of the Gil Evans Orchestra in over forty years, it also offers some of the most audacious and electrifying music of the new millennium.
The late Gil Evans was one of the most respected orchestrators in jazz history and his fabled collaborations with Miles Davis, including "Birth of the Cool," "Sketches of Spain" and "Porgy and Bess," set the gold standard for modern jazz arranging.
Accordingly...

This was recorded with Vuh leader Florian Fricke & Daniel Fichelscher (Popol Vuh and Amon Duul II), & is much in the style of the great, mid 70's Vuh CDs.

Brand new, ultimate Garden Of Delight reissue of this classic, early German prog album from 1971, originally released on BASF. Pretty much universally agreed upon as a must-own classic!

"Here's a long time krautrock classic. Gila impress us with a dynamic, intense and imaginative communication between spacey rock improvisations, lengthy psych guitar solos accompanied by luminous electric organ chords. "Agression" is a cosmic krautrock jamming, strictly instrumental (as the rest of the album)...

Remastered and researched edition by Mark Powell (with a good history of the band) and nice package design by Phil Smee with some astonishingly goofy photos. Giles, Giles & Fripp's only album is a weird trainwreck combining 60's psychedelic pop songs...

Gilgamesh was Canterbury keyboardist Alan Gowen's first professional band that he led, before he joined National Health. This was their 1st, which is a fine album very much in the Canterbury jazz/rock/Hatfield and the North mold, but with their own...


“Within a month of About Face’s release, Gilmour and band set out on the road to tour the record, a jaunt which lasted from March 31 to July 16, '84, covering Europe and North America. On 24th April the entourage performed an electric show at Stockholm's Johanneshovs Isstadion, which captured the essence of the entire tour better than any other date on the outing. Featured on this double CD package is a perfect FM broadcast recording of this Swedish concert, including the entire show which is now ...

“The first from Bill for a long time, this is an abstract aural collage recorded between 2003 and 2006, over long distances by mail, that operates somewhere between soundscape and radio art, assembling environmental recordings, bits of broadcasts and other modified found sound into a very personal sound diary or imaginary journey.”-Chris Cutler

Jef Gilson is known to most here - if he is known at all - for having co-starred on a number of early and very rare albums featuring Christian Vander. But that's not all he has done, and here's your chance to fill in the gaps!...

As of this writing (12/2010), which is Gordon's brand new album, available in limited quantities at this special price. Many people rave about guitarists like Steve Hackett, Steve Howe and Anthony Phillips, but I think Gordon Giltrap is one of the most..

“Anyone who asks me knows, that I think that Gordon Giltrap is one of the best acoustic guitar players in the world.
He gave me lots of hints on how to approach the acoustic guitar as opposed to the electric guitar.
He was always way ahead of his time. His concerts and playing are breathtaking. He's also very witty, and I love the fact that he has not cut his hair!”-Ritchie Blackmore

“The Legend that surrounds Gordon Giltrap has been built on 40 years of instrumental experimentation

"Guitar legend Gordon Giltrap and keyboardist Oliver Wakeman (following his years of touring with the classic progressive rock band YES) release their debut collaborative album 'Ravens & Lullabies'.

The album which features a return for Gordon to his rock roots following a 30 year absence and Oliver's first recorded works since his departure from both Yes and Strawbs. The album has been recorded and mixed by 'Threshold' guitarist Karl Groom (who also mixed the Yes 'Live In Lyon' record which...

Second release by this power trio from Holland playing a fun, intense, retro progressive hard rock/stoner rock outfit.
You know whether or not this is for you!

"Giobia celebrate a intense neo-psychedelic-rock, who is deeply inspired by the sound of the late sixties. Next to Guitars, Bass, Drums and Organ they use Sitar, Bouzuki, vintage Keyboards and Effects to create a colorful and swirling sound. Their vocals are often in the background to produce a more far out atmosphere. All that filled with love and passion for their music. Giobia's new album "Magnifier" is ready to suck you into a lysergic vortex of exotic mantras and Sabbathian rituals. The sound of the...

“An incredible and historical document from the Italian Progressive Rock scene of the early 70s (recordings from 1971-1973) by a six-piece band from Savona ‘Il Giro Strano’.
The band was formed by young musicians active in Liguria during the the 60s and 70s previously members of locally established bands such as: One Way, Voodoo, Tramps and others. In those days, the band had no chance of releasing any album, however, they left various tape recordings on reels and audio cassettes, preserving a...

Dave Gisler: Guitar
Raffaele Bossard: Bass
Lionel Friedli: Drums
"Over the past few years Dave Gisler has earned himself an impressive reputation in the free-thinking force field of contemporary jazz as a maverick sound architect on the electric guitar. With Lionel Friedli, the impulsive style-busting force of nature on the drums, and the agile bassist Raffaele Bossard, with his earthy tone, Gisler brought two of the most sought after musicians on the Swiss jazz scene. Since 2016 these three.

Dave Gisler: Guitar
Raffaele Bossard: Bass
Lionel Friedli: Drums
Jaimie Branch: Trumpet
David Murray: Tenor Saxophone

“Two years after the acclaimed live album Zurich Concert, which featured trumpeter Jamie Branch, the Dave Gisler trio adds another guest for a studio album – the giant of modern jazz – David Murray. Just as the trio immediately hit it off with Branch, Murray is furiously integrated into the band's punchy music, with the presence of both the trumpeter and tenor.

"Three years after their celebrated debut album Rabbit on the Run the Dave Gisler trio presents a live album with guest Jaimie Branch on trumpet.

Egberto Gismonti-piano, synthesizer
Nando Carneiro-synthesizer
Although everyone thinks of Gismonti as a guitarist (rightly so, since he's a great guitarist), people forget that he's a pretty fine keyboardist as well!

"Brazilian instrumentalist Egberto Gismonti's dazzling virtuosity is enough to impress, but his compositions aren't just showy pieces built around solo turns. Backed by a trio of synthesizer, bass, and cello, Gismonti creates stirring music that...

"Egberto Gismonti’s first new ECM recording in 14 years is a double-album that indicates the range of his artistry. Disc one features Gismonti the composer on a 70-minute journey through Brazil: “Sertões Veredas – tribute to miscegenation”. It is a work..

Egberto Gismonti is such a major talent that it constantly surprises me that more people don't appreciate his work. This is a fine place to begin your appreciation!

Giteck is known for her gift of melody & emotional crescendo worked from simple materials. Trained under Milhaud & Messiaen, she writes surprisingly melodic, accessible, & interesting music. [New Albion]

"Seasoned veterans of the ambient and deep-experiential electronic music, Howard Givens and Craig Padilla return to their soul-searching quest for expressing a symbiosis of music and contemplative self-examination and enlightenment with their new studio release BEING OF LIGHT.
This latest work, comprised of four tracks, one of which approaches "long-form" in style, conveys even more than with their previous highly-regarded LIFE FLOWS WATER release, their interest in harmonic color and dense viscous...

Frode Gjerstad: alto sax and Bb clarinet
Isach Skeidsvoll: piano

“Norwegian saxophone legend Frode Gjerstad started his career in the late 1970s playing clarinet, saxophone and flute. Gjerstad's tone is searing, his accents are forceful, he eschews regular tunes and improvises with the speed and dexterity of a seasoned veteran.
Gjerstad is joined on Twenty Fingers by Isach Skeidsvoll a dramatic, young newcomer on piano. The result is a spontaneous, edgy and bright series of duets that.

Frode Gjerstad alto saxophone
Steve Swell trombone
Jon Rune Strøm double bass
Paal Nilssen-Love drums & percussion

"Frode Gjerstad’s name can be legendary in Norway and all the European continent, due to the fact that he was practically the only one to contrast himself, from the beginning, to the saxophone style which defined the Scandinavian approach to jazz for 40 years, the one defined by Jan Garbarek, but his trio with Jon Rune Strom and Paal Nilssen-Love is relatively new...
