"A reissue of Serge Gainsbourg's cult score for the 1968 French film Le Pacha. These tracks were composed by Serge Gainsbourg at the height of his '60s cool when he was briefly going out with Brigitte Bardot and the couple was on the verge of recording the infamous first version of "Je T'aime... Moi Non Plus" (1969). All the tracks here are arranged by famed arranger Michel Colombier, who had been responsible for some of Gainsbourg's best songs ("Bonnie & Clyde" and "Harley Davidson") and had also...


"This album, the ninth (and most recent) volume of the John Noise Manis-curated Gamelan of Central Java, is a collection focusing on vocal works and sung poetry. Most of the pieces feature the solo vocals of Nyi Cendaniraras, although several feature...

"Hailed by fans and critics as a symphonic gem, the project of keyboard player and vocalist Angelo Santo Lombardi has taken the world of Italian prog by storm, adding influences of Italian prog giants as Banco, PFM and Orme with the keyboard wizardry of Keith Emerson.

Ritratto di Ballerina is the logic follow-up to its predecessor, while being more complex, compact and with a slightly harder edge. Quality standards remain unchanged, while the...

This 1974 spiritual jazz release features a pretty amazing line up of Reggie Lucas, Buster Williams, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Alex Blake, Charles Sullivan, Mauricio Smith, Norman Connors, and Billy Hart.

“Carlos Garnett was a reed player who was in one of Miles Davis' last 70s bands. Like a lot of backup musicans, he made some albums you may not know. Black Love is one, and you just GOTTA hear it.
The album is electric funk, with strong bass and great reed playing. The ideas stem from pretty...

“Carlos Garnett’s third album for Muse ‘Let This melody Ring on’ was recorded in 1975 and has a funkier edge than the first two. ‘The Good Shepherd’ is probably the best known track on the album a funky Jazz dance instrumental groove. ‘Senor Trane’ is a lovely modal jazz workout paying homage to the maestro saxophonist. ‘Panama Roots’ is an interesting near 10 minute musical journey to Carlos homeland. Prema sings on the swinging Jazz dancer ‘Samba Seranade’ which really cooks which also features a great...

"There is absolutely nothing subtle about Salt Lake City noisemongers, Gaza. On their second full -length offering, 2009's He Is Never Coming Back, the group is all about growls and screams, and extreme metal music that instantly jumps between sludge metal and near-grindcore. For extreme metal that reeks of cold, hard reality -- heck, just take a gander at the album's title -- Gaza are a supersonic blast to the noggin, especially such sludge-speed-sludge-speed (get the idea?) ditties as "Bishop"...

After In A Glass House, Giant and their record label made a concerted effort to 'break the band' in the USA, and the band toured here constantly. Signing with Capitol, they released 3 great studio albums that gave the band a slightly more rockified and...

A troubled 1978 release and the next to the last for the band. Not utterly without merit and there are some really clever parts here and there, but you really can hear the desperation set in. For fans only.

This reissues the band's fifth, possibly greatest & rarest work, as it was not released in the USA. This was their first without Phil Shulman, and the sound points towards the more 'definitely rock-yet-really-challenging' sound that they went for after...

Possibly their most popular album and certainly a great one! I believe it was their highest charting album in their career in the USA. Highly recommended.

When Chick Corea was just a struggling pianist who was trying to establish his post-Miles solo career, he 'rented' himself and his brand new band, Return to Forever, to Getz for a tour, telling Getz that he came prepared with music for Getz to play.
So, what came out was a tour with lots of Stan's tenor playing over Chick's tunes and a great, modern band (Stanley Clarke! Tony Williams!!) and a definite early electric jazz vibe.
An anomaly in both Chick's and Stan's career, but a very happy one.

JSP Records are the best label overall I've encountered who work in the field of releasing CDs of old jazz and blues recordings. JSP's releases typically undergo extensive (and very expensive) careful and tasteful manual cleanup, and they have become rightly renowned for the highest possible sound quality considering the source material. These releases all come packaged in full jewel cases (no little paper sleeves here) and have full personnel and reasonable liner notes. Highly...

Gibson is a long time performer of avant music (who else played in the premiers of "In C", "Einstein On The Beach" & "Drumming"?) who has spent over 25 years in Philip Glass' ensemble. This reissues his 1st album (originally released on Philip Glass' Chatham Square label in the 1970s) as well as some unissued material.
The original tracks were two long compositions: Visitations I - II, that Gibson describes as 16 multi-track-textured environmental soundscapes. The music presents several layers...

If you like Ethiopian pop music, Gigi, who is a fine vocalist (and also the wife of Bill Laswell) is one of the bigger names to emerge in the 00s from the scene.

Now this is pretty fascinating and also it's in surprisingly high quality sound. This is the 'home demos' that Giles, Giles & Fripp worked on to get themselves their contract with Decca Records, as well as the demos that they worked on during the period of their contract.
There is plenty of material that is essentially just (sometimes significantly better) alternates of the Giles, Giles & Fripp album, but it gets especially amazing as the disc progresses, as the band adds singer Judy Dyble, multi...

"Former Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour is not prolific. Rattle That Lock is only his fourth solo studio album (though it follows his late band's final album, The Endless River, by only ten months). Gilmour recorded some 35 songs for this set, some dating back 18 years. Trimming them to ten couldn't have been easy. Titled for John Milton's second book in Paradise Lost, Rattle That Lock is structured as an informal song cycle to reflect the sometimes random, sometimes weightier thought processes of a ...

“The first from Bill for a long time, this is an abstract aural collage recorded between 2003 and 2006, over long distances by mail, that operates somewhere between soundscape and radio art, assembling environmental recordings, bits of broadcasts and other modified found sound into a very personal sound diary or imaginary journey.”-Chris Cutler

"For over forty years Gordon has enjoyed the well-deserved reputation as one of Britain’s greatest guitar players. He made his first recordings in the 1960s as folk artist, but by late 70s he had crossed into the Progressive Rock genre. A trio of albums on the Electric Records label earned Gordon much praise and an ever-increasing fan base. In 1979 he released the album “The Peacock Party” for PVK Records, (also re-released on Esoteric this month), a highly successful project. 1982’s “Airwaves” was his...

Gordon Giltrap is an acoustic guitarist who, during the 70s, managed to cross-over into the progressive rock arena, where he made a few well liked and distinctive releases of the era, with some great personnel involved as well.

"A newly remastered and expanded edition of the classic album “LIVE AT OXFORD” by GORDON GILTRAP. For over forty years Gordon has enjoyed the well-deserved reputation as one of Britain’s greatest guitar players. He made his first recordings in the 1960s as folk artist, but..

"Guitar legend Gordon Giltrap and keyboardist Oliver Wakeman (following his years of touring with the classic progressive rock band YES) release their debut collaborative album 'Ravens & Lullabies'.

The album which features a return for Gordon to his rock roots following a 30 year absence and Oliver's first recorded works since his departure from both Yes and Strawbs. The album has been recorded and mixed by 'Threshold' guitarist Karl Groom (who also mixed the Yes 'Live In Lyon' record which...

"Double Vision / In Vision features Gordon Giltrap and Raymond Burley, each an accomplished guitarist in his own right, playing together in a series of seamless, masterful duets.
This concert collection includes two intimate, full-length performances, as well as an introductory interview with each artist. This DVD captures two specially filmed performances of Gordon Giltrap and Raymond Burley.
Although both artists have completely different styles, they manage to blend both styles together...

"This album was born out of studio improvisations by Glandien with drummer Chris Cutler (Pere Ubu, Henry Cow, Cassiber), and avant tuba player Michael Vogt (Berlin Symphony Orchestra). Listening back to the tapes, the group agreed that the results were a failure. This did not stop them from ripping through a storming live set at Berlin's Anorak club the day after the studio session, but the general mood was that the recordings should be scrapped.
A year later Glandien decided to re-look at the...

Lol Creme and Kevin Godley got their start with the classy and possibly 'too smart for their own good' pop band 10cc. Then, at the height of that band's fame, they split off on their own & made three fabulous and infamous releases, which mingled their...

"Gorgeous officially licensed US edition of this amazing mystical cosmic mind journey. Sergius Golowin is a Swiss author. In 1973 he got sucked into R.U. Kaiser's Cosmic Courier vortex and recorded this masterwerke. Over three long tracks Golowin provides spoken voice. The bed of music is provided by the Cosmic Jokers - Jerry Berkers, Klaus Schulze, Jurgen Dollase, Witthuser and Westrup, and Jorg Mierke. A melange of Mellotron, flutes, electric and acoustic guitars, and a variety of percussion.....

"This is a great Gong reunion album. It was released in 1995 from a progressive rock festival in 1994. Most of the "original" members from the Radio Gnome Invisible days are here. The only major missing persons are Steve Hillage and Pierre Moerlen (who was a late comer anyway). This double CD is about 110 minutes long. It is basically the Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy played in order, starting out with few songs the prequel Camembert Electrique.
But, it isn't a stale reproduction of the albums....

"On the face of it, it's an old band's obscure latest album with only a couple of original members.
To most prog fans that's a familiar story, one that will immediately invoke a horrible mental montage of the many dusty, abandoned mid-90s CDs dwelling dormant and boring in your rack (or drawer, or pile if you prefer). But do not fear. 'Acid Motherhood' is a Gong album in every respect. It just has different people playing on it. That's all. Instead of Steve Hillage we've got Kawabata Makoto, an...

I remember being a huge Gong fan, having discovered them just as Daevid was leaving the band, and seeing this in my local shop around Christmas, 1977 and buying it and being really really in love with this raucous, punky take on Gong. And recorded live and sounding great. And who could forget Daevid's cover imploring me not to pay more than $3.50 but "....better to rip it off if you can!" Middle class white boy I am, I paid more AND I didn't rip it off.
Planet Gong was Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth....

"A work nearly five years in its evolution, In Remembrance is Delia Gonzalez's first major project since she ended her collaboration with Gavin Russom to focus on her fine art career. Beginning as a set of 16mm films of ballet dancers accompanied by solo piano compositions, Gonzalez found inspiration for the piece in inspiration itself: In Remembrance celebrates the creative spark and clarity that make art...

Modern pop from the vocalist of Doves, with a definite emphasis on experimentation within the form.

"Odludek, the solo debut from Doves' Jimi Goodwin, makes up for what it lacks in consistency of tone with a pioneering spirit that both mocks and celebrates the digital age. Genres be damned, Goodwin is at his heart a world-weary Brit-pop songsmith in the vein of Elbow's Guy Garvey, and there is some of that to be found here, but for the most part, Odludek's ten largely disparate tracks play like...

"Recorded live at a museum in Bochum, Germany on March 14, 1989 and released as an LP the following year, Sonic Fiction was the first of many recordings to document the alternately subtle, restless, delicate, and rigorous interaction between German...

For their second album (and their 1st really great one), the Dead produced themselves and this 1968 psychedelic masterpiece, the band wanted to re-create their live experience, but within the confines of a single album...

Before she was the femme fatale of the west coast psychedelic scene in the Jefferson Airplane, Grace fronted another fine California psych band, The Great Society. They never really had much of a chance, as the band broke up in 1966, but this surviving...

This was advertised as a John Greaves / Pip Pyle release, but like so many things VP, turned out to be only half true, but with a very happy ending nonetheless!

"It started out as a collaboration between John, and this guy Philippe-Marcel, after John said in an interview that he was looking for fellow musicians to work together. Anyway, they got together, and eventually Pip became involved too....
Still, it has, I think some of John and Pip's best stuff in years."-Aymeric Leroy

There are a lot of people who make electronic music, but NO ONE sounds like Jeff Greinke except Jeff Greinke.
This features a huge array of folks on other instruments such as keyboards, brass, guitar, strings, reeds and percussion, but it still sounds like a Jeff Greinke release. Highly recommended.

"Scenes From A Train rather follows the footsteps of his rhythmed, jazzy-infused side project Land. Released in June 2013 on UK label Infectious Music, Jeff Greinke is supported on this album by...

"Sometimes, when the rhythm section is really cooking and everybody is together, this feeling of euphoria comes over you." Johnny Griffin.

"This is a fine continuation of Griffin's work from the late 1950's into the early 1960's. The sound is uniformly good ... clean and fairly crisp. The booklet (as usual from Real Gone Jazz) lists titles, dates and personnel. Griffin's style has been called muscular, hard-drivng, and relentless, and for once those terms apply. The albums included are:...

"2009 archive release from the British Blues greats. In September 1976, The Groundhogs were a four piece adding second guitarist Ric Adams to bolster the sound and allow Tony McPhee more space to develop his amazing guitar runs. This Swedish gig was...

"Live classic British rock from The Groundhogs including previously unheard & unreleased rare material from the Crosscut Saw tour in 1976, featuring tracks from that album plus favorites from the Split (1971) & Solid (1974) albums including a 14-minute 'Cherry Red'. Includes 12-page booklet with liner notes & b&w photos."

"I'm glad to see a live cd of the groundhogs that isn't full of their "standards". this was recorded in 1976 and covers tunes from my favorite release "solid", "crosscut saw"...

Alto saxophonist and (perhaps more lastingly) fine composer Gigi Gryce went into teaching by 1961, leaving music behind, but he also left behind some great albums and some great, classic tunes.
On this set you get:
When Farmer Met Gryce (1954)
Nica's Tempo (1955)
Jazz Lab (with Donald Byrd) (1957)
Modern Jazz Perspective (with Donald Byrd) (1957)
Sayin' Something (1960)
The Hap'nin's (1960)
The Rat Race Blues (1960)
Reminiscin' (1960)

"Critics agree that this was the release that found Gunn fully nurturing his personal vision as both a player and a composer. “The Third Star” was written and recorded between his work with David Sylvian and King Crimson.
In addition to the spectacular re-mastering of the original recordings, six bonus tracks are included on this release. The bonus tracks vary in time and instrumentation. Two are relatively new tracks composed and recorded with Gunn’s current instrument – the Warr Guitar. The other...

"One of the lesser known Guru Guru albums originally released in `93 and re-issued in `07 on revisited records with remastering by none other than ex-Grobschnitt drummer EROC.
Well you can`t go wrong with the technical improvements as well as the one thing which is guaranteed with every Guru Guru album from Mani Nuemeier & Co: A wacked out musical experience with diversity and relentless energy. Divided roughly between vocal tracks and instrumentals, " Shake Well " contains a heavy dose of high...

"Our authorised reissue of early Wigwam leader Gustavson’s 2nd solo work from 1979 (originally on Kerberos Records) comes with a facsimile of the original printed insert plus new liner notes by Mikael Wiik and also a fresh interview with Gustavson himself.
As Jukka’s work with Wigwam attests, his music was always complex and demanding – but, it more often than not incorporated a totally infectious groove. On his second album Valon vuoksi (-79) he moved even further away from his earlier influences...

Bruce Haack, born on May 4, 1931, was one of the most musically and lyrically inventive children's songwriters of the '60s and '70s. Despite -- or perhaps because of -- his intended audience, his music was unusually expressive, combining homemade analog synths; classical, country, pop, and rock elements; and surreal, idealistic lyrics. Haack's innovations and desire to teach still sound fresh, making his music a favorite with fans of analog synths and esoteric recordings.
...Though he had little...

A really fine album of piano and drum duets from a somewhat unlikely pair!

"The debut Brian Haas & Matt Chamberlain album Frames features 11 instrumental compositions that spiral through the tempered scale. A through-composed work for piano and percussion, it was written entirely by Haas, the internationally renowned pianist and founder of Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. Now based in Santa Fe, Haas wrote Frames as a suite, equally influenced by stride piano masters Earl Hines, James P. Johnson...
