Italian keyboardist and composer Vincenzo Ricca has put together this symphonic/progressive instrumental conceptual work which is "A musical walk through the history and the places, the greatness and the beauty of the eternal city."

"This one is obligatory. A classic. The Revue was a one-off concert in Tuscaloosa, Alabama in 1975 - part of the second Raudalunas Exposition - trapped on tape by chance or no one would have believed it. A revue that remains consistently outside any...


A very little known, but very high quality fusion album from 1978 from the one-time guitarist of Boston's 'beloved-but-never-quite-famous ' artsy rock outfit Orchestra Luna. This is totally different and will especially appeal to guitar head fusion fans..

"There’s a good side in the present day global dimension and that’s called “cultural syncretism”. Roots Magic is an Italian band who's gradually building up a repertoire between Deep Blues and Creative

"Take Root Among the Stars", quoting the words of the great science fiction writer Octavia Butler, here is Roots Magic's third installment for Clean Feed. Cut by the Italian quartet, here and there augmented by a couple of special guests, historical wind player Eugenio Colombo and vibes maestro Francesco Lo Cascio, this new album comes as a further step into the borderland between Deep Blues and Creative Jazz.
The new repertoire includes reworked tunes by Skip James, Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre...



“Artist and musician Rosa Barba paired up with drummer Chad Taylor for their first duo record, In a Perpetual Now of Instantaneous Visibility. Documenting a September 2019 performance and installation at New York's Park Avenue Armory, part of an invitation by pianist Jason Moran, the CD's two mesmerizing tracks clock in at over 30-minutes each. Patiently built as collaborative soundscapes, they feature Barba's unorthodox conjoining of cello and film projector in which she uses the celluloid as an...

Traditional and original compositions based on the music of Southern Italy. [Felmay/New Tone]

Traditional and original compositions based on the music of Southern Italy. "The inspiration is born from the musical patrimony of the south Italy, but evolve with the wide breath of an authentic world music." [Sottosuono/Felmay]

"After the remarkable success of Facce and In forma di Rossa Pugliese vocalist Antonella “Rosapaeda” Di Domenico is back with a new CD, Mater that’s sure to delight her growing legion of fans. On Mater what is most striking is her voice, a voice at...

“It is impossible to talk about modern psychedelic music without mentioning Ripley Johnson. As bandleader of Wooden Shjips and half of Moon Duo, Johnson has continually charted new cosmic paths that expand on the language of the genre.
With Rose City Band, Johnson’s songwriting and beautiful guitar lines take center stage. While his vocal treatment would be recognizable to any Wooden Shjips fan, the sparseness of the instrumentation lays bare the beauty of his writing. Shimmering guitar lines are...

Long before Americana primitive solo guitar became the hipster thing, Jack was doing this music and doing it better than just about anyone. Another great, beautiful and deep album from an excellent guitarist.

"This double-disc features a brand...

There are a lot of younger guitarists mining the 'American primitive guitar' esthetic right now, some of them adding very modern things to it and some of them playing it rather straight. Of all these (very fine) players, I have yet to hear one who nail...

''Yes, we're still shopping - this is an unexpurgated copy of the Victoriaville concert (Radio recording) with group: Lauren Newton, Joelle Leandre, Otomo Yoshihide and Chris Cutler. In my opinion the wildest and most dizzying version on record. Unfolding chaos with luminous performances - viz, Lauren's hair-raising interpretations and vocal event, Joelle's oscar-winning bag lady performance, THE CAST for maintaining an atmosphere of knife-edge confusion. All human life and a whole lot of other stuff too...

"Experimental Italian guitarist, electro-producer and sound designer Eraldo Bernocchi joins forces with percussionist FM Einheit (a founder of the influential German industrial group Einstürzende Neubauten) and London-based cellist Jo Quail on Rosebud, a compelling mix of tranquil ambient sounds and pummeling industrial onslaughts. From the opening "Bloom," an 11-minute suite that travels from evocative ambiance to caustic crescendo, to the closing theme "The Inquirer," which emerges gradually over a...

Absurd in the Anthropocene is in line with his abstract musicianship and virtuous experimentalism but, naturally, pushes the envelope. The record’s inspirations run the gamut from Miles Davis and Ornette Coleman to Frank Zappa, Soundgarden, and Squarepusher, and its title refers to the complicated and often surreal times in which we live.
Rosenboom, a musician at the forefront of Los Angeles' ever-thriving creative music scene, boasts an international reputation for boundary-pushing projects and...

“Sam Rosenthal (USA) and Jarguna (Italy) merge with the sunset on their first electronic/ambient collaboration, a work that lingers in the ephemeral dusk of dreams. It's an evocative blend of drones and synths coloring the margins without overwhelming the music's essential fragility. Sensitive sonic montages lead listeners quietly into the twilight where the sustaining ambient moods eventually resolve to rise up again as in "Evening market of the petal fields part 3" where Erik Wollo's Kosmische electric...

"Kurt has been working in a Standards Trio for years now. His last release in this format was Reflections in 2009. He's done many more things in the intervening years, including his original material presented with the likes of his quartet (Star of Jupiter), the Brazilian leaning Caipi band, and the Portuguese Big Band, OJM. His most recent release prior to this was the spontaneously composed Bandit 65 project's Searching the Continuum.
Anything he does features his unmistakably great playing, and...

While they last, this is $6.00 off the usual price. And it's a great album.

“Semantics was a jazz supergroup consisting of Elliott Sharp, Ned Rothenberg and Samm Bennett.
Elliott Sharp, born in Ohio in 1951, began playing the piano at the age of six and started to perform concerts two years later. He soon gave up the piano, first in favour of the clarinet and later for the guitar. Sharp became intrigued with all types of experimental music, from contemporary classical to...

Ned Rothenberg clarinet, alto saxophone, bass clarinet, shakuhachi
Mark Feldman violin
Sylvie Courvoisier piano

“Saxophonist, clarinetist and shakuhachi flutist Ned Rothenberg. violinist Mark Feldman, and his wife pianist Sylvie Courvoisier are old musical friends and collaborators but this is their first trio recording. So the ground is seeded, but don’t let the solidity shown by the music from “In Cahoots” fool you: as a principle, they try to take their creativity further, exploring.
