The June Rise is guitarist/composer/multi-instrumentalist Mark Yodice. Mark was sent my way by Shawn Persinger (ex Boud Deun) who knew I would like this record, and he was right, of course!
This is an album of 10 small pieces mostly constructed...

"Father Yod and Yahowha 13 ride the eternal now and come up with a psychedelic classic. The story of Father Yod, Yahowa 13 and the Source Family could literally fill books, but rest assured, they truly were the "apex of high" in terms of psychedelic...

"The legendary Father Yod was a wealthy man, with a rich inner life, a family of disciples that loved him, many, many women and seemingly unlimited power. So why at the height of his success, did he choose to spend his time playing rock and roll...

"One of the heaviest albums from Father Yod and crew. Along with I'm Gonna Take You Home, it's just the best -- one of the finest sacred space cadet acid-mantra psychedelic death trips of all time, for sure. Captain Father Yod moans and groans a perfect..

"Father Yod and Yahowha 13's most famous release. A swirling mix of philosophy, chants and pure psychedelic bliss. The story of Father Yod, Yahowa 13 and the Source Family could literally fill books, but rest assured, they truly were the "apex of high"...

"Back in the early 70s a curious group owned and operated a health food restaurant in Los Angles. The Source Family was a religious group of young people centered around the father figure of Father Yod, a WWII flying ace and spiritual searcher...

"Quite possibly the most psychedelic album of all time; mysticism meets the fire of improvisational electricity. The story of Father Yod, Yahowa 13 and the Source Family could literally fill books, but rest assured, they truly were the "apex of high" in..

"Yagull's official debut for MoonJune Records, Kai, finds the band expanding its post-rock chamber soundtrack concept to great effect. The result is a simmering sonic bouillabaisse, chocked full of choice ingredients which delectably merge to blur the...

This is the first album release by an instrumental symphonic rock trio from the UK whose roots date back to the late 70s/early 80s and who have gone through many, many permutations and personnel up to now, but who have never released anything until...

"Super political, rocking, anti-establishment communal band (c. 1970) put together as a result of the Kent State Massacre. As the Euphoria Blimpworks Band, fronted by Howard Berkman from morose garage punksters the Knaves, they played demonstrations...

''Yamada is a brilliant young composer who has worked with Anthony Coleman, Marc Ribot, the Crosstown Ensemble, the Agon Orchestra and was previously heard on the Avant CD by Rough Assemblage.'' [Tzadik]

"Eri Yamamoto moved to NYC from Japan a little over a decade ago. A classically-trained piano prodigy, she initially flew to NY just to visit her sister, but after hearing Tommy Flanagan perform in trio in Central Park, Eri had a momentous revelation...

"The deeply lyrical and prolific pianist/composer Eri Yamamoto returns quickly to record with Firefly, a brand new collection of wholly original and indelible songs, this time performed live in intimate concert, with her decade-long devoted trio of...

"The last two years marked pianist/composer/bandleader Eri Yamamoto's rise into the consciousness of astute jazz listeners outside of NYC. Her essential appearance on William Parker's eternal Corn Meal Dance was followed by a pair of her own luminous...

"Pianist-composer Eri Yamamoto returns with a bountiful new collection of her singular all-original music, performed with her perennial trio partners of deep empathy, bassist David Ambrosio and drummer Ikuo Takeuchi. As the album title suggests, the material moves through a far range of emotional evocation, from ebullient to thoughtfully introspective, reflecting the absolute vibrancy of her long-time adopted home, New York City, and the importance of finding space within the perpetual motion of the city...

""Eri Yamamoto moved to NYC from Kyoto, Japan in 1995. Eri's growth as a jazz player and composer over the last 10 years is truly phenomenal. Having deeply impressed us last year, AUM Fidelity quickly recorded two albums with her in early 2008. The first

Simultaneously thrilling and frustrating as hell release of this long, long unavailable music. Stomu Yasmashta was a renowned and young Japanese percussionist and composer from Japan who moved to London around 1970 and made a number of albums for...

It's totally thrilling to see this long unavailable album become available! Stomu Yasmashta was a renowned and young Japanese percussionist and composer from Japan who moved to London around 1970 and made a number of albums for Island Records, all of...

Stomu Yasmashta was a renowned and young Japanese percussionist and composer from Japan who moved to London around 1970 and made a number of albums for Island Records, all of which are quite hard to find. This 1975 album was his first release after his jazz-rock group East Wind fell apart.
The line up is: Stomu Yamash'ta -percussion, Gary Boyle-guitar, Tsuneo Matsumoto-guitar, Brian Gascoigne-keyboards, Daito Fujita-bass, Tozumi Tanaka-drums, Hisako Yamash'ta-violin, with guests on vocals. This is a...

Oldsters like me will remember these albums, Go, Go Live (a double album) and Go Too, which sold quite well at the store I used to work at in the mid/late 70's. This marks the first time that all three of these are available on CD, and unlike the US ve...

Yang, a French quartet whose stunning compositons combine intricate guitar parts with driving rock, is the newest project led by French guitarist and composer Frederic LEpe. LEpes former projects include founding two of the most intriguing all-instrume...

Long-awaited and quite wonderful second album by Yang. Wasn't sure it would ever happen (read below) but I'm glad it did and it is everything we were all waiting for!

"Founded by Frédéric L'Epée in 2002, Yang is an instrumental rock quartet...

Frédéric L'Épée: guitars, keyboards (Shylock, Philharmonie)
Laurent James: guitar
Nico Gomez: Bass
Volodia Brice: Drums

This is the third release by Yang, a French / German quartet who combine intricate guitar parts with driving rock.
Featuring the 'standard' line-up of two guiarists, bass and drums, Yang play a dynamic instrumental music that rocks hard, and which bears comparisons most closely to elements of King Crimson.

Four musicians perform on thungpchen (a long, deep-toned instrument similar to the alpine horn), Jya-ling (a double reed shenai, cousin of the oboe), kangling (thigh bone trumpet), dun-kar (conch shell trumpet), na (large double-headed bass drum, cymb...

"In the Now, the debut album from the John Yao Quintet, signals the definitive arrival of trombonist and composer, John Yao. Demonstrating a broad textural palette and drawing from an array of stylistic influences, Yao explores the concept of opposing...

Inspired by the beauty and power of nature, the music of Carolyn Yarnell straddles the borders of minimalism, romanticism and Baroque. A maverick in the American tradition of Partch, Ruggles and Riley, her compositions have been...

"This is the debut full-length release by Yawning Sons, a unique collaboration between musicians from different sides of the Atlantic. In July 2008, Californian desert-rock veteran Gary Arce (Yawning Man/Ten East/Fatso Jetson/Dark Tooth Encounter...

Excellent quality video EP of 4 tracks from 1969/1971 by the Anderson/Tony Kaye/Chris Squire/Bill Bruford line up with Peter Banks on the earlier stuff and Steve Howe on the later stuff. I've Seen All Good People, Yours Is No Disgrace, No Opportunity N...

A classic of its time; for 1972, this really was a basically flawless masterpiece of what it was attempting to achieve. 3 long tracks and the end of the Bruford/Wakeman/Anderson/Howe/Squire band, as Bill bailed for King Crimson. My favorite of their...

2003 remastered edition with liner notes, unseen photos and bonus tracks. Rick Wakeman returns, so the line up once again is: Wakeman/Anderson/Howe/Squire/White on this 1977 album, which I sorta considered their last hurrah until recently. This include...

“I have been a Yes fan since 1976 and have seen ALL 4 singers perform with the group live (I saw the Drama tour in 1980!). The new CD is a style similar to the last one Fly From Here (which I also liked). Heaven & Earth is lyrically similar to 70s Yes although not quite as cryptic. Jon Davison is an excellent musician and singer, and does well live with classic Yes. I saw the 3-album tour last year and the latest one Aug 1 in Hollywood, FL and both were outstanding!
The new CD has the "feel" of what...

The classic lineup (Jon Anderson, Steve Howe, Chris Squire, Rick Wakeman, Alan White) recorded live in California in 1996, doing a lot of their best stuff from 'back in the day' (The Revealing Science of God, Siberian Khatru, America, Starship Trooper...

"In Spring 2014, iconic and Grammy-winning rock band, YES performed on their Canadian, UK and European tour a true classic rock double header by performing two of their most popular albums in their entirety, all in one concert: 1971s THE YES ALBUM....

This is over 2 hours of the band right around the time I saw them, where they blew my socks off, much to my surprise! The band is Jon Anderson, Steve Howe, Chris Squire, Rick Wakeman, Alan White.
