Paolo Tofani was the great, great guitarist of the great, great Italian avant/progressive rock ensemble Area. This album of 'acoustic tricanta veena' music (Veena is a Indian stringed instrument) was recorded in India and is an interesting and great blend of Indian music and avant-guitaring sounds.

Unconditionally recommended if you like Indian music. Conditionally recommended if you like Area.

How did he manage to.


“The legendary 1979 Masahiko Togashi album Song of Soil, recorded in Paris with Don Cherry and Charlie Haden and released on Japanese label Paddle Wheel. Supervised by Parisian producer Martin Meissonnier -- then Don Cherry's right-hand man -- Song of Soil reaches heights of spirituality mixing Eastern influences with jazz and deep ambient soundscapes. The album is reissued here with its original artwork and remastered by King Records in Japan.
Masahiko Togashi's cult classic, Song of Soil was...

"I have always loved Charles Tolliver's playing. His tone has been & is always so beautiful. It has always amazed me how he is not better known than he is. Andrew Hill, Jackie McClean, Stanley Cowell are just a few of the many people he has recorded with over the years. If you want to hear a great trumpet player who also writes great tunes (not to mention his big band & his arranging), you would be remiss not to give him a listen. He comes roaring back in small group format on this recording. Do not be...

Here's what I know about this band - there is no one named "Tom" or Moto" in the group. It's an Italian group consisting of (electric) trumpet, electric bass and drums, with guests. In some ways, it's reminiscent of Jean Louis, a trio who are similar...

"I have had an idea if I apply the neural network to create my sound work for long time. When I had a performance at Centre Pompidou with Peter Rehberg and other friends I tried to talk about the idea with a French guy from IRCAM. But, he couldn't understand my idea, which by using neural network the sound I create would never have any repetitions. That was 2002 and I had to wait until 2015 when I had a grant from New York State Council on the Arts through ISSUE Project Room, then its director Lawrence...

“Massimo Toniutti is an Italian sound designer and experimental musician. He is the brother of Giancarlo Toniutti who is best known for his dark ambient masterpiece La Mutazione which was originally released on the Broken Flag label in the UK and later re-issued by Klanggalerie. Massimo started working with sound when he was a teenager, collecting and playing recordings of all kinds. In th 1980s he released four cassettes on his own label, all heavily influenced by the experimental musis scene of that...

"Tonochrome are a London based art rock quintet whose grunge aesthetic is peppered with jazz harmony, contemporary classical influences, Andean sounds and pop hooks. A coming together of opposites, of texture and colour, of the acoustic and the synthetic, Tonochrome are a joyful reminder of what music can be when you just don't give a damn about convention."

An early classic of synthesis and electronics. A bit dated, as all of these types of records are, but still a landmark, as after two albums as "TONTO", Cecil and Margouleff both went to work with Stevie Wonder, adding their talents to his incredible...

Pretty excellent through and through modern Italian band who do the "Tortoise thing" of combining jazz, rock and progressive with heavy electronica and dragging it all into the 21st century. If you dig the Jaga Jazzists and Tortoise and etc...

“Hip To The Jag, Kavus Torabi's debut solo album, is a blissfully skewed swan dive into the swirling cosmic kaleidoscope of the poet's soul. From spectral, intricate and fragile compositions to psychedelic, joyous and open drone-scapes, it is brave, beautiful and beguiling throughout.
Kavus Torabi's songs dwell on mortality, love and loss. He uses disquieting themes as a way of establishing a context for transcendent bliss.
Over the last two decades, as one of Britain's most inventive songwriters.

The relationship of this, Kavus' solo debut, to Knifeworld is not dis-similar to Chameleon In The Shadow Of The Night's relationship to Pawn Hearts. One would not exist in the same way without the other, it is similar in a lot of ways, but very different as well.

“Progressive rock band from Aachen, Germany circa 1971 to 1974. During their lifetime they recorded one SWF radio session and an album.
Their style mixed jazzy and classical touches, and elements as diverse as Jethro Tull, Amon Düül II or Vinegar.”

This is the 8th full album by this fine, genre-defining, nearly all instrumental Chicago band (2 songs with vocals that won't kill you but don't need to be there either). The number of people paying attention now is much less than when they were in vogue, 20 years ago, but they remain just as excellent and fun. Highly recommended.

"In Jazz music, each artist should be profoundly personal and vitally collective at the same time. For this reason, a saxophone, bass, and drum trio is a machine as demanding as it is fascinating. The absence of the piano “glue” makes the musicians look for solutions to this odd game. On one extreme we have a pure section on rhythm releasing all melodic work to the saxophone, on the other hand we can find bass...

"The prodigal son of Portuguese jazz is finally on record.

Now, we can seat at...

Sudoh Toshiaki is the drummer and leader of the excellent Canterbury-influenced jazz/rock band Machine and The Synergetic Nuts. They put out two pretty great albums in the late 90s/early 00s and have been silent every since (although they are still around, at least as a live unit).

Still, many of our customers remember them fondly.

This is a CD featuring Sudoh performing all the musical parts on drums, keyboards, computers, bass, etc. What is mostly sounds like is a demo recording for a...
