"In 2009 American percussionist and composer Gerry Hemingway relocated in Luzern, Switzerland, and found himself in a thriving community of musicians and artists with whom he has forged new relationships. Chief among those relationships are the guitarist Manuel Troller [of Schnellertollermeier] and saxophonist and bass clarinetist Sebastian Strinning. As a group they began exploring...

For me, Trees were one of the greatest of the great first generation UK folk rock bands, sporting a great, truly psychedelic lead guitarist a wonderful vocalist and excellent musicianship and especially vision from all. This is their two albums, plus two new discs of alternate mixes, early demos, BBC session tracks and 2018 live recordings in London.

“A beautiful hybrid, Trees found a unique space between intimate folk and freewheeling psychedelia. Musically ambitious yet brilliantly balanced...

Trettioriga Kriget are an excellent progressive/hard rock band from Sweden, who formed in June, 1970 and who released their very influencial first album in Sept. 1974. This is their 2nd album, and it too has proven to be a big influence on the 2nd (3rd...

2005 edition in mini-lp sleeve. "A short-lived, obscure group. In fact, no one knows even the names of its members. A large part of this album is instrumental, such as the 4-part suite "Sabazio". This is typical keyboard-based, classically-inclined pro...

The third and fourth album by one of Spain’s most popular progressive rock bands of the 70s.

"A symphonic prog band that defined Flamenco progressive and were the foremost Spanish progressive band. These guys, at times, remind me a lot of King Crimson in their early days, yet were a genre in themselves.
With poetically styled songs, gorgeous flamenco guitar, and a very Spanish sound, Triana are a must to try, being a very important progressive band.
Any of their first four....

The band created four albums - "New Views", "Breaking Barriers", "Live" and "Terra Incognita". "New Views" was the first album and was the one that gave the group their breakthrough in Germany and Sweden in the middle of the nineteen eighties. TRIBUTE toured continuously between 1983 and...

"In the early '90s, the short-lived instrumental group the Coctails created an intriguing blend of easy listening pop and avant-rock. The Chicago trio, Tricolor, are undoubtedly familiar with the Coctails' work -- guitarist Jeff Parker, a member of both AACM and Tortoise, is part of the same general school of musicians that has infiltrated every level of the Chicago post-rock scene -- and although they don't sound that much like the Coctails, a similar aesthetic seems to be at play...

Excellent instrumental quartet of keyboards, guitar, bass & drums playing a jammy-styled psychedelic spacerock. They refer to their music as 'heavy zen jazz' and while they certainly aren't a 'jazz band', this comfortably fits into the heavy/hard fusio...

"Denver-based trumpeter-composer Joshua Trinidad makes a strikingly original statement on his RareNoise Records debut, In November. Recorded in Giske, Norway, this highly evocative trio outing features the adventurous Norwegian guitarist-composer and ECM recording artist Jacob Young and drummer Stale Liavik Solberg, a central figure on Oslo's improvising music scene.
Brimming with deep and winding lyricism, Trinidad's elegiac seventh album as a leader is a compelling mix of bold long tones on...

"Once upon a time...back in the ancient era of the 70s there was a fantastic but little known German fusion band called Katamaran. They made three phenomenal albums that would send Return To Forever fans into ecstasy. Then they were gone. Guitarist Franz Holtmann is 1/3 of Trinity Xperiment.
A bit later in the 90s...perhaps not so ancient...there was an intense German fusion band called Matalex. Keyboardist Matthias Krauss was an active member. He is 1/3 of Trinity Xperiment...

This is a pretty amazingly hot, modern power trio fusion album, with everyone playing great. Of course, in a band like this, the main focus is on the guitarist and he delivers some pretty wild playing on top of the syncopated groove laid down by the...

"In mid-October, 1969, I left the UK to meet up with bassist Barre Phillips and drummer Stu Martin to begin working with them as "The Trio".-John Surman (notes to “Way Back When”)
This was the band that Surman joined in the fall of 1969 that led to him becoming an early Brit-jazz expatriate for about 3 years but that also led to him becoming internationally known, especially on the European continent.
Their first release was a pretty powerful blast then as it still is today.
Due to his...

"Days to be Told is new music with an integrity modeled by musicians who are making it happen in a very old way, a rising tide of putting it all together: place and sound, people and purpose. Triangles imply a certain geometrical balance and stability; that’s why we put cameras on tripods. A group like this—two-man rhythm section, plus free-soloing saxophonist—can self-destruct on the spire of imbalance or implode under the weight.

"The music of Trio Heinz Herbert is first and foremost a tonal experience. Broad arcs and ingenious geometric grooves give it its form. Spaces are created, pivotal points set, textures woven. Within these free markings the tonal chemistry begins to unfold its potential. Sometimes a space shuttle floats through an underwater garden, sometimes the sounds glisten like a cell under the microscope...

The trio's captivating aesthetic is thanks to a symbiotic intensity of expressio. It contains traces of '70s free jazz psychedelics and particles of contemporary club culture and aspires to a broad fusion of free jazz and electronic music, energetically driven by a collective improvisation which outflanks solo gymnastics. After their celebrated 2016 recording, The Willisau Concert, with YES.
