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.

This archival release by Sweden's rightly legendary Trad Gras och Stanar is revelatory and it's great to see it again after it being out of print for a number of years.
The final culmination of the musicians from Parson Sound, Harvester & International Harvester, this archival release is the stoner/pounding id classic with equal influences from Terry Riley and The Monks you would want it to be! Highly recommended!

"Cacophonic present a first time vinyl reissue of a pioneering album of French free jazz, François Tusques's Free Jazz, originally released in 1965. Comprising some of the earliest, uninhibited performances from musicians behind groundbreaking European records and films, Free Jazz captures the birth of an exciting movement that would soon earn its Parisian birthplace as the go-to European spiritual home of improvised and avant-garde music. Spearheaded by pianist and composer François Tusques, this 1965...

"In May 1972 Twenty Sixty Six And Then met first time and decided to found a band. Day and night they rehearsed and filed on their sound in their residence in Mannheim.
A journalist at that time wrote, "Dominating in their music is a dynamic, which is regulatory in the developing harmonies in the complex structured arrangements. When the musicians sometimes get lost in old hard rock stereotypes they kept enough distance to the sounds, to prove their intents with detailed inserted alienation." ...

"A Travail Egal Salaire Egal was Un Drame Musical Instantane's third album, originally released in 1982 on the group's own GRRR label.
Since its creation in 1976, featuring Jean-Jacques Birgé, Bernard Vitet and Francis Gorgé, the group has decided to promote collective musical creation, co-signing their albums, which they consider as artworks in themselves, or their live shows which they try to renew every time they play.
Un Drame borrowed their sources from rock (synthesizer player Birgé and...
