Rabbath, a Lebanese Frenchman, is one of the real virtuosos of the double bass. These two very early albums (1963 & 1964) show off his extraordinary technique on a series of solos as well as overdubbed duos trios and quartets with and without drums/pe...

Based in California, the Rabbinical School Dropouts is about as crazy as a group of kooks as one could wish for. Sun Ra, the Hampton Grease Band, Frank Zappa and the Klezmatics all rolled into one, the music of the Three Freidmann Brothers is fresh and...

"What?? is a focused and grounding work produced by Swedish composer Folke Rabe in 1967. From his interest in sound phenomena and harmonics Rabe was able to make one of the most deep, moving pieces of sustained sound generated in this formative era of minimalist electronic composition. Initially reissued on Dexter's Cigar in 1997 and now available on Important with expanded packaging including archival materials furnished by the composer. Amplified infinity." "My interest in the makeup of various...

Great to finally be able to hear one of the great lost 1970s groups that everyone who follows this sort of thing had heard of (see who is on this below) but that no one had ever actually heard. With any luck, maybe someday I'll get to hear "Dolphin Logic"...

“It all began with an image seen so long ago at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles, the image of a long chart showing known wavelengths. It was clear that in addition to the wavelength from the earth to the sun, there were long waves stretching between other planets, solar systems and galaxies. Closer to us on this earth, there is the ocean that brings us closer to a more accessible contemplation. Beyond its own cycle, it also gathers the rivers, waterfalls, springs, fountains that nourish it....

This is a great listen but it's also a bit of a sad release, as it was recorded at the home of the band's good friends, Cyndee Lee Rule & Jeff Nutkowitz in May, 2013, as Jeff was dying. This was the group's last time to be able to see Jeff and this private concert was their goodbye to him.

For a very short while - perhaps 30-36 months - Boyd Raeburn led the most technically advanced band in the world. Starting his career playing in and then leading commercial dance orchestras during the '30s, he moved towards jazz during the early '40s. He embraced the outlook, styles and techniques of bebop and incorporated them in arrangements for his orchestra, hiring modernist arrangers and players.
He somehow lucked into one of the greatest mid 40s arrangers, Eddie Finckel and when Finckel left...
