"Originally released in 2001 by Fledg'ling, Mazurka Berserker, by renowned UK folk musician and instrumental virtuoso John Kirkpatrick, is a stunning series of collaborations with some of his favorite musicians. Recorded by Oliver Knight in Robin...

Possibly England's greatest accordionist, this is a completely solo album. No tricks, no studio work. Just a man and his various squeezeboxes.

"In 1988 John Kirkpatrick recorded this solo album. It is an amazing album with the predictable talent of performance. There is a lovely atmosphere and mood on this album.
There are some great song choices here. All the tracks are Traditional except for a piece from Sue Harris, and three from Sally Turner. All of course arranged by Kirkpatrick...

Long time Waysiders will remember us carrying (and selling!) a lot of these back when it was originally released on lp-only in 1986. It was a really good one then and it's still a really good one now.

Synthesist Bernd Kistenmacher seemingly came out of nowhere in 1986 with this album of Berlin- style electronic music that was basically the best thing that Klaus Schulze never made.

"It was Klaus Schulze's 1976 album Moondawn that altered the trajectory of Bernd Kistenmacher's life when he.

Long time Waysiders will remember us carrying (and selling!) a lot of these back when it was originally released on lp-only in 1987. It was a really good one then and it's still a really good one now.

Synthesist Bernd Kistenmacher seemingly came out of nowhere in 1986 with his first album, Head-Visions, a fine 70s-style album of Berlin-style electronic music that was basically the best thing that Klaus Schulze never made.

This was released one year later and was his nearly as excellent...

“This is the third album by Osamu Kitajima, one of Japan's most prolific artists from the ethno rock, world music and progressive department. You can certainly not divide all the mentioned stylistic aspects from each other for they were all incorporated in a homogenious sound and complex arrangements. It is the same with his other albums like Benzaiten and or his fourth Masterless Samurai; traditional Japanese music meets Western jazzrock and progressive sounds to form a new style unheard by most people ...

“Geometry of Distance is the sophomore album by Geometry. This recording follows their debut album, Geometry of Caves, released in 2018 from Relative Pitch Records. Seth Colter Walls of The New York Times called the quartet's first album a "vibrant new recording", Stereo Gum's Phil Freeman described it as "hardcore improvised music" and Dusted Magazine wrote, "The foursome behind the fifty-minutes.

“Kite Parade is the creative alter ego of Somerset based musician Andy Foster and his songs come from a passion for all things prog, rock and interesting pop!
Although his teenage years were spent listening to all the usual suspects, having an older brother with a decent record collection meant he was also immersed in the wonderful sounds of Yes, Supertramp and Genesis etc.
Fast forward to the early 2000s when Andy bought some gear and started writing songs. After soon realizing that he was too...

"The list of astonishing women saxophonists is getting bigger, and to that list there’s one more name you should add: Julie Kjær.

Excellent jazz album with definite Latin influences, but arranged and put together in an intriguing and occasionally avant-garde way. This is most decidedly NOT your parent's mambo album! A fantastic band of players too: Ben Monder, Miguel Zenon...

The fifth album by this superb, modern jazz ensemble, a band with definite Latin influences, but arranged and put together in an intriguing and avant-garde way. This is most decidedly NOT your parent's mambo album! A fantastic band of players too: Ben Monder, Miguel Zenon, Sandro Tomasi, Chris Cheek, Bill McHenry, Jeff Ballard and others! If you are any kind of a jazz fan, I feel quite safe in personally recommending this!

"Teetering on the Verge of Normalcy is the latest CD from the "trailblazing virtuoso" (The Wall Street Journal) accordionist Guy Klucevsek.
"Friendship and tributes bind this album together," Sarah Cahill writes in the CD's Introduction. "Compared to his previous work, this heartfelt album has an especially elegiac quality, informed by the loss of comrades and colleagues."
Typical of Guy's music, this CD abounds in sweetly gorgeous melodies, infectious rhythms, piquant harmonies, and superb...

Guy is one of the great accordionists of the world, really showing off how that instrument - in the proper hands - is really a miniature band. But this isn't a solo album: it's got lots of other fine players, including major names like Dave Douglas...
