Ako Doma's music is a scoop of less known prog rock, but also has its impurities or its "new-culture" leanings. Despite that it isn't hard to get their works, it's on the other hand a bit hard to savor them completely, every spin taking you deep in...

"The Albion Band's 1998 release, "Happy Accident", is a marvelous album of contemporary folk-rock influenced by traditional English music. For the record, Ken Nicol, Joe Broughton, Neil Marshall, Gillie Nicholls, and Kellie While join the band's...

Canterbury history lesson 101: Before Soft Machine and Caravan, there were the Wildeflowers. But even before the Wildeflowers there was the Daevid Allen Trio. This document of one of their very, very few performances, at the Marquee Club as part...

Great price on a great collection of music. This includes 48 tracks from his 1st five releases. Lots of originals (including early original classics like "Parchman Farm" and "Young Man Blues"), but it's the covers that show where Mose was coming from...

A Norwegian band with a heavy take on progressive rock. Reminiscent of Sonambulist, but possibly even heavier!

"Once again we turn to Norway for a fresh take on an old sound. With amps turned way up, Anti-Depressive Delivery blend classic...

"This new group is an instrumental power prog trio leaping onto the progressive scene. The project is the brainchild of guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Glenn Snelwar. Torn Between Dimensions, the band's debut recording, features Snelwar on guitar...

"Shadow Border is the second album from Dutch progressive rock band The Aurora Project. Their 2005 debut, Unspoken Words, brought them much acclaim in the worldwide progressive rock community. The band has twice been invited to perform at...

If you don't own this album, their debut, this is definitely one of the great Italian progressive/symphonic efforts. Dual keyboard classical Italian rock band with a fabulous, operatic singer, this is a classic.

The 2nd album, & one of the best by this dual keyboard classical Italian rock band with a fabulous, operatic singer. This is one of the great Italian classical rock albums by one of the great Italian bands.

This 1999 live album features songs both old and new and the line-up of John Lees and Woolly Wolstenholme in the front-line, so you know that the vocals, guitar and mellotron/keyboards are all going to sound right, along with Craig Fletcher-bass...

This is a totally surprise and a big thrill for Anekdoten fans who have been waiting a LONG time for a new release. This is a Spanish suspense film soundtrack by the guitarist/keyboardist/composer Nicklas Barker of Anekdoten, and while it has elements...

Arrigo Barnabe is a Brazilian bandleader and composer who released 3-4 real classic out-rock albums in the 1980s that were comparable in some ways to Albert Marcoeur's first four. They were reissued on CD a few years ago, but are now long out of print...

"Jeremy Beck has created a special kind of musical world; one which combines hope with a gentle sadness and nostalgia. It is the kind that you glimpse upon waking on a Sunday morning and seeing a steady rain in the garden, knowing that you can go right...

Percussionist John Bergamo has worked most notably with Frank Zappa on some of his mid 70s albums and was one of Ed Mann's teachers (Ed also played with Frank). This old CMP title features great sound and utilizes the array of odd instruments, African...

Very fine Americana-styled jazz/blues/rock/whatever mix from 3 excellent players.

"The Norwegian outfit BIG ROBOT describes itself as a musical collective, where members Per Sjoberg and Ole Christensen make up the central core of the collective. "Aquafit" is the debut effort by this project, and adding their input to the proceedings...

By my count, this is the fourth and latest album by this Los Angeles-based progressive hard rock/retro/stoner outfit. Led by keyboardist/vocalist Damon Fox, the band features tons of Hammond organ, Mini-moog, etc. etc. etc. The other musicians on...

"A live recording from the Leipzig Opera House is the debut documentation of the duo of Ketil Bjørnstad and Terje Rypdal (working together since 1999). Material revisits pieces from Bjørnstad’s “Water Stories” and “The Sea” and from Rypdal’s...

While they last, this is $12.00 off the regular price!

This is a pretty great thing to see. The 1967 Swedish show has long been available in trading circles, but here it is sounding the best it can (reasonably good considering the age), made...

"Like a melancholic but problematic love affair, this album simultaneously comforts and distresses a wounded heart. In that sense it's most reminiscent of...well, er, basically everything else this band has produced. The dichotomy of exposing oneself to..

Recorded over 40 years ago in 1964 at a tiny club, this was wild, radical, stomping music in its day and it can still be enjoyed now. This is where Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker first worked together (included is an early but not that different version...

This is the first album by guitarist Marc Bonilla who has played with a lot of different folks since this debut from 20 years ago (1991) and now, most notably with Keith Emerson in Keith's band (Keith appears here), Kevin Gilbert (who appears here) and...

This is long out of print, on the always excellent See For Miles reissue label. Alto saxophonist Earl Bostic was a master of his instrument, but he was somewhat underappreciated by jazz fans due to the string of popular R&B/jump blues hits he recorded...

"On the surface, Lodger is the most accessible of the three Berlin-era records David Bowie made with Brian Eno, simply because there are no instrumentals and there are a handful of concise pop songs. Nevertheless, Lodger is still gnarled and twisted...

This is a French-only Blue Note release by this Swiss-born pianist who leads a band consisting of fine if unknown French musicians on trumpet, bass, drums and percussion. It's recorded and mixed by Jan Erik Kongshaug at Rainbow Studios, so you know it...

A masterful composer & arranger, as well as instrumentalist (Brookmeyer is one of John Hollenbeck's most important influences), this coers the period 1956-1962. You get: Brookmeyer, Stretching Out, Kansas City Revisited, The Blues Hot and Cold...

"I've been out of touch with Pete since his Harvest days. Didn't think he was around anymore. So, I was surprised to see this release. I bought it with minimum expectations and was amazed at how good he sounds. Pete's voice, singing, and style has...

Great price on this 1989 solo album by Jack, which features a bonus track not on the original issue.

"When this album was released by Epic in '89 it was announced as something like a big come back album, full of illustrious gueststars...

While they last, this is 1/3rd off the usual price! Well, this is a pretty great album if you love Jack and/or Robin and also a bit of a great surprise, even though they have worked together before. The tunes are all co-composed by Jack and Robin...

"They live in north of the Kalahari, in a semi-desert bush region, and they rarely travel outside their country. Even today, the Ju'hoan culture's polyphonies are closely tied to community life. Each community has its own repertories. Hand-clapping...

This normally sells for $18.00, but we've got a special on a limited number of copies for $5.00 off the regular price. Once those copies are gone, there will be other, identical copies still available and this will still rock and kick butt, but they...

Tokyo playwright, director and artist J.A. Caesar sprang to prominence in the early '70s largely through his work with Shuji Terayama's Tenjo Sajiki Theatre, specializing in vaguely sinister music reminiscent of a Hammer House Of Horrors soundtrack...

"In 2002, Camper Van Beethoven reunited for a nationwide tour on what seemed like a whim, occasioned by a closet-cleaning belated issue of a song-by-song cover of Fleetwood Mac's Tusk, an album they'd recorded as a joke back in 1987. The tour must have...

A great album, but you must remember that I *like* Granny music. If you have an appreciation for 'the great American songbook, this is a as good as anything released in that vein in the past decade!...

"With his tribute album to Miles Davis, bassist Ron Carter waxes nostalgic about the five years that he spent with the trumpeter's straight-ahead quintet, and about the worldwide mentoring that Davis provided for years afterward. Carter, who just turned..

"I'm rather surprised that I'm the first one to review and even rate this record. It has been the weekly tip on a large German newspaper about 3 months ago. They were really enthusiastic about it, and - against normal operation - I can confirm their....

I was going to say that this is the latest Circle album, but since their website states that this is 'aproximately' the 7th Circle album released in 2007, I am afraid I will cough and an 8th one will come out. This presents the band in full NWOFHM ("new w

One of the better progrock albums from the 1980s - and one that has been unavailable for some time - is now available again in a greatly expanded form. This was their first album and their best. The leader is keyboardist Erik De Vroomen, who gives the...

Eight great works, all of which came out in 1954-1960 by one of the great if under-rated by all except other musicians, bop/hard bop tenor man out there. Many of these feature his long time band mate Zoot Sims, and they were pretty much a perfect...

This is the ground zero of modern jazz's recorded efforts of the last 50 years; if you want to hear another recording that had as much influence, you'd have to go back nearly 15 years earlier to Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker's first recordings...

Reissues a 1981 double. Varga has added a lot of additional keyboards, & the sound is less straight-forward classical rock. Pretty good, but not the best by this band. [Bonton]

"Melodically dark and strong, with roots in both the black American jazz and European composed music, all integrated into a personal statement of an incredible depth."-Erling Kroner, Jazz Special, Denmark

Excellent release by Ravi (sax) and band; Luis Perdomo-piano, Drew Gress-bass, EJ Strickland-drums. Is he his father reincarnated? Is he breaking ground the same way his father did? The answer to both of these questions is no, but he is a fine player...

"One of Chick Corea's most ambitious projects was the recording of almost 60 hours of music with nine different groups over a three-week run at the Blue Note in December 2001; it must have been a challenge to choose the dozen performances for this two...

"Chick Corea has been the most important Jazz Musician since Miles Davis, and this DVD shows that he still is just that. Joining Chick are all 4 original members of the Elektric Band. Each member of the Elektric band is quite possibly the best
