"Little Bang Theory, the Michigan trio featuring Frank Pahl, that performs and records only using toy musical instruments, captured an infectious, wide-eyed youthfulness with bright and cheery arrangements on its 2008 debut album Elementary....

This is from the band's peak era, touring for the about to be released 'The Last Record Album'. Truly one of the US's great rock 'n' roll bands of the 70s.

"It's not surprising that Little Feat are on such blistering form during this 1975 WCBN..

“Few bands that formed in the early 1970s have managed to survive and continue touring to the present day. Little Feat is one of the few that have, in no small part due to their outstanding musicianship and the idiosyncratic songwriting of founding member, Lowell George, which has stood the test of time. This 1976 Winterland performance is one of the finest examples of Little Feat during the prime years of Lowell George, when the group had established a reputation as one of the most exciting and original...

"Little Free Rock hailed from Preston in Lancashire and were a psychedelic hard rock trio featuring Peter Illingworth (lead guitar and vocals), formerly with David John and the Mood who had recorded with Joe Meek, Paul Varley (drums), later a member of Arrows and Frank Newbold (bass and vocals). They began performing covers of bands such as The Who, The Creation (whose ‘Makin’ Time’ appeared on Little Free Rock’s album) and Tomorrow, but were soon performing mainly their own compositions...



“One of the biggest selling bluesmen of the sixties and early seventies, when He was Recording for Stax and Chess, Little Milton began his career in the fifties at the legendary Sun Records.

Four of his obscure alternate takes are featured at the end of the CD to complete the package. Also Included as bonuses are six titles on which he featured prominently as a guitarist. Three of These...


Yeah, I know what you all are thinking, but of the first wave of US rock and rollers, I would venture to say that Mr. Richard Penniman was the wildest and his music has held up remarkably well for being 55 years old since the earliest of these tracks...

"Lung -- the highly anticipated new album and composition from Brooklyn's genre-defying Little Women -- is an epic without precedent. Where their acclaimed 2010 suite Throat (AUM061) grabbed listeners by their necks from the first seconds, Lung arises...

"Brooklyn quartet Little Women create music whose aim is transcendence via brutally precise sonic assault and ascendant melodies, attacking written and improvised material with equal ferocity. The group's sound distilled from a broad range of influences that stretch from free jazz through math metal, punk rock, pop music, and harsh noise. Saxophonists Travis Laplante and Darius Jones breathe together as one multi-tongued exquisite beast reveling in higher harmonics, splitting overtones to create ghost...


"How's this for a group. Teddy Quintet leader and vibes, Booker Ervin on tenor, Booker Little on trumpet, Mal Waldron piano, Addison Farmer on bass and Ed Shaughnessy (who latter was really co-leader of Johnny Carson's Tonight Show band) on drums...

"Live from Gevelsberg (Sauerland) played art-rock with flute; without the nerve-wracking breaks often heard in this genre, but rather harmonious. In 1974, they released a 7" single and recorded an LP which, however, didn’t come out at that time. Only...

"Stunning performance from June, 2010

"The quartet heard on Jumping the Creek … sets a high mark in his career. … The pianist Geri Allen here turns in some of her most committed, nuanced playing in years, covering ground from modal to ballads to free, though often in combination with only...

"Sometimes the trust in knowing can yield more than the excitement of uncharted territory. Charles Lloyd ratchets down the energy from Rabo De Nube (ECM, 2008), one of the most exciting, free-wheeling albums and new groups of the saxophonist's...

"On this decidedly low-key set, Charles Lloyd, on tenor throughout, seems suspended between surrender and desire, with lush, melancholy outcomes. Billy Hart has, by this time (The Call came in 1993), joined Lloyd's '90s quartet, and the results are...

"The Water is Wide" is the first of two Charles Lloyd albums culled from an exceptionally productive session in Los Angeles. By turns tender, joyful, reflective, it brings together authoritative players who span the generations; each is a unique...

“Recorded live on April 21 and 22, 1987 at CBGB's in New York, this is much more than a live best-of album by the "other" star to emerge from Television. Richard Lloyd has always stood -- undeservedly -- in the shadow of Tom Verlaine, sort of a Gene Clark to Verlaine's Roger McGuinn, and for reasons difficult to fathom, his solo career has never taken off.
Lloyd's and David Leonard's guitar playing is in absolutely top form here, and his voice makes a fine instrument, at least on-stage, whether he's..

“Radiant Monkey rules:
No effects on any of the guitars: no fuzz boxes, no choruses, no nothing - just Stratocasters straight into amplifiers. No more than three guitar parts on any song: one main rhythm guitar, one secondary part, and one lead. The record is under 45 minutes long, containing 11 songs, most of which are short. This is in line with records done in the late 60s.”

“As a guitarist, Richard Lloyd is every bit as gifted as Tom Verlaine, his former partner in the band Television...

“The Lo Yo Yo was founded by Family Fodder frontman John Pearce, aka Alig, in 1984. They were active for 2 years and released one cassette, one split cassette with Look De Bouk, one full-length LP and appeared on the Local International 15-26 compilation cassette on Recommended.
The band's name comes from a Captain Beefheart song titled Low Yo Yo Stuff on the 1972 Clear Spot LP. The Lo Yo Yo's line-up was very varied and included, along 10 or so other musicians, various Family Fodder members like...

Considered by many to be the final great Italian symphonic rock album! "By 1977, progressive rock in Italy was all but dead. Most of the movement had moved either underground or more towards the experimental (Pierrot Lunaire, Picchio dal Pozzo). It mus...

Locanda were one of the greatest of the 'one and done' Italian progressive/symphonic rock bands of the 1970s. They released their one album, Forse Le Lucciole Non Si Amano Pui, in 1977 when the progressive scene there was all but dead. They are...

“I was drawn to this release by Bill Bruford's name and was not disappointed by my purchase. Pete Lockett is a world-class percussionist who gathered together other able colleagues to produce this CD. For all you curious Bruford fans, Bill appears on roughly half the tracks and spends most of that time behind his kit.
The CD's rhythmic explorations vary between direct attacks and gentle, almost hypnotic, soundscapes. Expect a lot of Indian/Eastern rhythms here. It's a great record for shuffle play...

“Where Future Unfolds is a new work spirited by Chicago-based sound & visual artist Damon Locks. Starting as a solo sound collage piece (where Locks pulled samples from Civil Rights era speeches and recordings to create an improvisational pallet for performance on his drum machine), over 4 years the project has blossomed into a 15-piece Black Monument Ensemble – featuring musicians (including Angel Bat Dawid on clarinets and Dana Hall on drums), dancers (members of Chicago youth dance company Move Me....

Didier Lockwood-violin
Aldo Romano-drums
Allan Holdsworth-electric guitar
Gordon Beck-piano
Jean-François Jenny-Clark-double bass

This is a pretty straight ahead jazz date by Allan’s standards, as he isn’t the leader here, and the other players are in more ‘jazz/jazz’ mode, but his tone is still very electric and unmistakenably him and he plays thrillingly great.
