Andrew Cyrille: Drums, Percussion

Andrew Cyrille’s longtime companion Oliver Lake praises the master of African-American rhythms in his poem The Real Cyrille – “making the real magic … the real rhythms … the real sounds … expanding his African/Haitian roots … surfing the drums for masterful lyrical snippets … a master of color … painting coloring riffing always stretchin’ searchin’ lookin’ for that next sound color sound!” Lake’s words astutely describe the artistry of Andrew Cyrille and the...

“A composition simply means things being put together. In music, we usually think of composition as a classical idea. But in recent years, the possibilities of what 'composing' can be, have dramatically increased. Based in Oslo, Norway, Deathprod (aka Helge Sten) has been making his own forms of music with no compromise since the early 90s. His specialty is a deeply atmospheric, grainy minimalism that slows time down and explores the very particles of sound itself. This music can sound forbidding and...

Brandon Ross - electric guitar
Kevin Ross - bass guitar
Hardedge - soundesign
Chris Eddleton - drums
Ford Crull - painting

“Collaborations between artists specializing in different mediums regularly bring out facets and revelations unknown to the participants theretofore. Utilizing sonic and visual elements to stimulate creation, guitarist, conceptualist Brandon Ross and his ensemble, PENDULUM, met Neo Symbolic Abstract painter Ford Crull to generate what Ross calls a.

“James Brandon Lewis is a New York-based jazz tenor saxophonist, composer, and bandleader. His instrumental voice marries the emotional power of gospel and the grit and groove of blues and R&B to the modal and vanguard influences of Albert Ayler and John Coltrane, and Sonny Rollins' expressive melodic and tonal discipline. Lewis drew the attention of many improvising artists, most notably the saxophonist and jazz deity Sonny Rollins, who doesn't offer effusive praise very often.
Moved by Lewis' deep..

Dave Liebman - soprano sax, piano, wooden flute
Tyshawn Sorey - drum set, piano
Adam Rudolph - handrumset, percussion, live electronic processing

“The genesis of this threesome coming together seemed to be a quite natural one.
Liebman and Rudolph began playing duo in 2016 and Sorey and Rudolph began performing as a percussion duet in 2018. Sorey states "we seemed so in sync with each other, in part, perhaps, because we are both composers as well as percussionists." When the...

"Cybotron was one of the first,if not the first,electronic rock bands in Australia.Cybotron released this, their self- titled debut in 1976.
The group draws heavily on synthesisers (as would be expected), electronic and acoustic percussion, plus saxophone and played minimalist, repetitive progressive-style electronica in a style that emulated the direction of the 1970's German cosmic sounds.
Heavily influenced by the electronic/kraut acts of Germany like Kraftwerk,Neu,Tangerine Dream or Ash Ra Tempel.

"Recorded in Supraphon's Prague studios in Dejvice in March 1970. jointly created by the bands Blue Effect [Modry Effekt] and Stivín's Jazz Q Praha.
The result of this process is forty minutes of music in which the influence of external environments, the immediate ability of each participant, and the predetermination in regard to traditions which shaped their musical development to-date, are expressed by new beauty which contains both logic as well as free, imaginative inspiration within."

“Autobiographie is the 5th and final album from Muffiny mastermind Dave Newhouse’s Manna/Mirage series. [Don’t worry – he’s not stopping, but he decided to retire the name].
A little longer than the previous albums (46 minutes +), it showcases the same great guest musicians that Newhouse has loved working with. And on this one, there is the added bonus of including two early former Muffin members, Michael Bass on drums and Michael Zentner on electric violin.
This is a very limited run of 300...

“ZOPP RETURNS! British progressive rock act, ZOPP, return with their sophomore album ‘DOMINION’, the follow up to their award-winning* self titled album, released in 2020.
‘Dominion’ showcases a clear progression in the sound of Zopp resulting in an epic 42 minute journey spanning avant-garde, jazz, ambient, folk, psychedelic rock and endless heaps of PROG.
Ryan W Stevenson, the man behind Zopp (composer, mixer, producer, performer… heck, basically everything but the drums which have once again.

After releasing two unsuccessful albums in 1969 and 1970, Renaissance started to unravel with new members replacing the founding members, until, by the time of this, their 3rd release, no member remained from the original band who played on the first two albums! But surprisingly, this accident of chance led to the formation of one of the best loved progressive bands of the 1970's. This first album by the 1970's version (i.e. the Annie Haslam version) of the band is definitely a transitional album, but...

“This stunning double live album from Mostly Autumn is the culmination and release of all the pent-up emotion and frustration that gathered after two and a half years of inactivity due to the pandemic. The concert is a mark of some kind of normality returning, and the cast of songs spans 27 years of the band. The magic and intensity is captured deeply in this show and is highly infectious.
Award winning Mostly Autumn’s musical palette is diverse, they draw on influences from the golden age of rock...

Sometimes referred to as a female counterpart to Rock Bottom by Robert Wyatt, and rightly so. For me, this remains her greatest work.

“A newly remastered edition of 'Sunset Glow', the classic album by Julie Tippetts. Julie first came to public attention under her maiden name of Julie Driscoll and had enjoyed commercial success with Brian Auger & the Trinity. Eager to break away from the heavy burden of being in the public spotlight, Julie wrote a series of fine compositions and collaborated....

“This 7 CD clamshell boxed set features a selection of recordings made at five concerts recorded between November 1976 and June 1983 by different incarnations of the sonic pioneers.
The first two concerts recorded in Nottingham in November 1976 and Washington in April 1977 feature the legendary line-up of Edgar Froese, Chris Franke and Peter Baumann. The latter concert was broadcast live on FM radio as part of a US Tour that spawned the live album ‘Encore’.
The 1978 concert in Hamburg featured a..

Saddled with what I think is the worst name in the world, this is a band that I used to see in the bins in the early 70s, but never heard and never wanted to hear until I was tipped off that they were actually an extremely good psychedelic / proto-progressive trio!
This includes both of their 1970 studio albums, their first single, as well as a previousy unreleased studio album! Surprisingly great (or at least surprising to me!)

“These days, “prog rock” suggests music with flagrant classical..

Emmett Elvin - acoustic & electric 6- & 12-string guitars, bass, acoustic piano, Rhodes, Twin Copicats, Nord synth, vocals, percussion, Yorkshire Tea tin full of spoons

Alex Thomas - drums, cymbals
with:
Sharron Fortnam - ethereal vocals (2)
Olga Lisikova - alchemical vocals (11)
Beverly Crome - French, tenor & baritone horns
Sam Barton – trumpet

A very good, slyly weird album of songs from the keyboardist of Chrome Hoof, Knifeworld.

Reaching WAY beyond what even I though was his extremely impressive range of abilities to make music in myriad styles, this is kind of an old school r’n’b album, with fabulous vocals.

“This is a recording Harrison made during the pandemic that, like so much of his output, is a total surprise. The Stardust Reunion Band is a vocal-centered record featuring four of New York City’s greatest singers, Everett Bradley, Nicki Richards, Keith Fluitt, & Amanda Homi. The songs draw from R&B, jazz, rock...

Aki Takase – piano, harpsichord
Mayumi Nakamura – mezzo-soprano
Vincent Courtois – cello
Daniel Erdmann – tenor and soprano saxophones

“Carmen, one of the most popular operas ever, focuses on a strong and proud woman ruled by her own law. On her new album, iconic jazz pianist Aki Takase takes up this convention-breaker figure, labeling her interpretation of Carmen as a rhapsody. As a seemingly loose sequence of lightly floating, dance-like musical thoughts, which are based on the.

“Founded in 1992 after Robin Storey left Zoviet France, Rapoon soon became an outstanding ethno-dark ambient project that has gained a cult following all over the world. More than 80 albums have been released over those nearly 30 years, some more beat driven, others more playful and with ambient sounds and ethnic influences. Rapoon has never stopped evolving - think of Cultural Forgeries, an album full of unplugged acoustic music. Or Downgliding, full of compositions on the piano. Recent Klanggalerie...

“In early 2002, Achim Kaufmann, Frank Gratkowski and Wilbert de Joode first got together as a trio at a small venue in Amsterdam. Since then, the three musicians have been touring and performing internationally on a regular basis, while constantly developing, deepening and enriching their musical rapport now documented on five CDs so far: kwast on Konnex; Unearth on Nuscope; Palaë and Oblengths on Leo Records; and Geäder on Gligg Records. To celebrate their ten-year anniversary as a trio in 2013...

This is the first-ever vinyl reissue from the original analog master tapes! The first album by this German band, recorded in Fall & Winter 1971, & originally released on Pilz. One of the few purely symphonic rock-styled German albums of the early 70's.

“In 1971, under the direction of Jürgen Dollase, who also composed all the tracks, this album was recorded and finally released in 1972. It was recorded at Dierks Studios by Dieter Dierks himself. Dollase and drummer Harald Grosskopf were later...

“Terror Iridescence is the 4th full length release by the latter-day, New York City based reincarnation of the seminal Punk Jazz/No Wave/Brutal Prog unit The Flying Luttenbachers, and the 17th album since 1992. After all of this, longtime fans tend to expect...

“Originally released in 1977; in the history of free improvised music, there has been arguably no greater advocate for the idiom's power and potential than the English guitarist Derek Bailey. Fiercely principled, between his emergence during the 1960s and his death in 2005, he cut a wide path, positioning this music at the height of creativity, transpiring in real time, and a means through which people from diverse backgrounds could come together, express, and commune. For Bailey, "playing is about...

“Originally released in 1979. Recorded live at WKCR Radio in New York City in 1978 and issued by Ictus the following year, Environment for Sextet encounters John Zorn at the earliest stages of his career, resting within a sextet of a new generation of stunning improvisers emerging at the tail end of the '70s who would go on to define a vast swath of the '80s sound -- Polly Bradfield on violin, Andrea Centazzo on percussion, Eugene Chadbourne on guitar, Tom Corra on cello, and Toshinori Kondo on trumpet...

This is the first-ever vinyl reissue from the orginal analog master tapes! This is a Cosmic Courrier Kraut classic. Wegmuller was an artist who had designed a Tarot card set, & the music here is performed by what is basically the first version of the Cosmic Jokers: Manuel Gottsching, Hartmut Enke, Harald Grosskopf, Jurgen Dollase, Jerry Berkers & Walter Westrupp.
Produced by that big Cosmiche Joker himself, Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser, & star-maiden Gille, there are many moments of wild, searing Krautrock!...

This numbered, limited edition of 500 of their best album, is on blue, 180 gram vinyl.

A classic 1972 RPI album. Vocals, acoustic guitars, keyboards, bass and drums are what make up this album, the first of two, by this melodic/progressive band.
Like a cross between Italian symphonic/progressive and UK bands like Procol Harum, Moody Blues and even the most progressive aspects of later Beatles.

This numbered, limited edition of 500 of their best album, is on pink rose, 180 gram vinyl.

"One of the most popular bands in Italy at the beginning of the 70's, not only among rock fans because of their long collaboration with singer Lucio Battisti who took them to the newly formed Numero Uno label producing their first album....On the third album, Sognando e risognando from 1972, the band included some original compositions, along with the usual Mogol-Battisti tracks, and the result is probably...

“After 45 years, the most acclaimed, revered horror franchise in film history reaches it's epic, terrifying conclusion as Laurie Strode faces off for the last time against the embodiment of evil, Michael Myers, in a final confrontation unlike any captured on-screen before, one where only one of them will survive.
Recorded in it's entirety at Carpenter's home studio and Davies' studio, the unmistakable mix of software synths, vintage analogue equipment, and live instrumentation once again provides...

Thick As A Brick is one of the great classics of the progressive rock era, by one of the great early bands of the era. This comes in a beautiful and large package that reproduces the original lp's stunning (and quite funny) jacket with a 'new colour' supliment that includes rare photos, band reminiscences and more. It comes in a deluxe, 104 page 7.5" x 5.5" hardbound book.

“What does John Cale have that the rest of us don’t; some gene that engenders infinite restlessness, a rapacious mind that is never satisfied?
For nearly 60 years, or at least since he was a young Welshman who moved to New York and joined The Velvet Underground, Cale has been reinventing his music with dazzling and inspiring regularity. Once again, here is Cale, reimagining how his music is made, sounds, and even works.
His engrossing 12-track MERCY — his first full album of new tunes in a...

Excellent instrumental jazz/rock band that channels Headhunters with classic helpings of Weather Report on top. Really enjoyable retro-fusion fun that seemingly came out of nowhere; when the clavinet kicks in with the bass clarinet on top, you’ll swear it’s 1974 again!

"The jazz fusion group Wasafiri, and its resulting 2022 debut album Klearlight, began with the memory of a feeling. Eastwood Music Group co-founders Luke Sardello and Skin Wade wanted to release a project that evoked the feelings...

NOTE: We can ONLY send this single with orders for other vinyl items; we can not ship a vinyl single by itself or with CDs only. Thank you.

This is NEW OLD stock at OLD STYLE prices on the fairly rare 7” by the late, great Hosemobile, who only made two (fairly great) albums in the late 90s. And this even less known single.
This is two songs recorded by Steve Albini at Electrical Sound, preliminarily to his recording some of “What Can and Can’t Go On”.
Both songs are found nowhere..

“Todd Rundgren's THE INDIVIDUALIST LIVE concert was filmed and recorded live during the summer of 2019 at Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe, PA. Together with long time band members Jesse Gress, Greg Hawkes, Prairie Prince, Bobby Strickland and Kasim Sulton, Todd mesmerizes his audience for over 2 hours covering his illustrious career of hit songs much to the delight of his adoring fans!
The DVD has special features too, with interviews and amazing interaction between Todd and his fans, as he answers some...

This numbered, limited edition of 500, is on orange vinyl.

"This trio was among the earliest on the Italian progressive scene...an album that lies halfway between psychedelic beat music and early progressive rock, comparable to Vanilla Fudge and New Trolls' heavier 1960's singles".-Scented Gardens of the Mind

This numbered, limited edition of 500, is on white vinyl.

The 2nd album from the band that I consider to be possibly the finest Italian progressive rock band of the 1970's, & certainly a band in the top tier of all early 1970's progressive bands worldwide! Area combined jazz/rock/stolen ethnic music (mostly from Eastern Europe and the Middle East)/the avant garde and more. Superb playing from all (vocals/organ, guitar, electric piano/synths, bass & drums). This includes a thick booklet with rare...

“In 1973 progressive rock group Tasavallan Presidentti's career was going forward on a high note: the band had in 1972 released the critically acclaimed album Lambertland with their new vocalist Eero Raittinen, and the following year the band embarked on a successful UK tour.
In 1974 things would take a downward turn which ended in the band splitting up, but what this compilation offers you is a snapshot of the year 1973 when everything still seemed possible. The band were returning home from the...

“Tasavallan Presidentti's 1st incarnation with vocalist Frank Robson performed their last studio session at YLE Broadcasting Company in Helsinki, 1971. This session was, however, completely buried by time and forgotten, until Svart Records accidentally stumbled upon an archival copy.
This studio session recording from the autumn of 1971, found from the archives of the Finnish Broadcasting Company, is a sensational discovery in many ways. It is a studio live session which the band recorded just before..

First release from a duo of keyboards and drums + guests really REALLY want to be Egg with melodic Hatfield traces. They get the sonics right and musically, often they actually come really, really close in a good way. “Of all the progressive rock subgenres, the “Canterbury Scene” designation may be the most specifically geographed. The obvious contender would be the Italian prog scene. On the newly announced debut album from Zopp, we’re promised a hefty slice of Canterbury-Prog via collaboration with...

“2014 debut album by the Garden Music Project features music inspired by the paintings of Pink Floyd founder Syd Barrett. This release is timed to coincide with the eighth anniversary of Syd Barrett's passing in 2006. The music on this release can be best described as an epic interpretation of Syd Barrett's paintings using Synesthesia perceptions. A unique masterpiece of 12 tracks that truly reflect the early artistic concept of Pink Floyd founder Syd Barrett and his music legacy in modern times.”...

"Out To Sea" is the debut instrumental progressive rock album by Fernando Perdomo, guitarist and bassist of The Dave Kerzner Band. The album draws inspiration from classic 70s Art Rock albums by the likes of Steve Hackett, Peter Banks, Steve Howe, and Jan Akkerman.
All instruments on the record, save one drum track, were played by Fernando Perdomo including Guitars, Keyboards, Bass, and Drums. Acclaimed artist Paul Whitehead painted the cover image."

“It's a very well-done "tip-of-the-hat"..

“Static is Dave Kerzner’s follow up studio solo album to his acclaimed debut “New World”. It’s a “progressive rock opera” about the distractions, chaos and clutter in everyday life and about navigating past this “static interference” in our heads toward clarity and happiness.
The album also features: Steve Hackett (Genesis), Fernando Perdomo (Jakob Dylan), Nick D’Virgilio (Big Big Train), Derek Cintron (Brothers of Others), Randy McStine (The Fringe), Matt Dorsey (Sound of Contact), Durga & Lorelei...

It features two members from the band's glory days, Hammond organist/flutist/vocalist Thijs van Leer and drummer Pierre van der Linden as well as bassist Bobby Jacobs and guitarist Menno Gootjes.
Ever since their return in the the early 00s, the band has been winning over old and new fans, because (a) they are still really great and (b) they still really sound like Focus!...

This rural Westcoast/blues/psychedelic album from the early days (1967) includes 5 long tracks with furious guitar, organ jams and powerful vocals, reminding to many of the numerous milestones of legendary SF era.
