"Jono el Grande is a self-taught composer, musician, conductor, painter, and prankster and remains an outsider on the far margins of the Norwegian experimental music scene. He released his debut mini-album Utopian Dances in 1999, a collection of absurdist instrumentals recorded at home using not much more than a workstation synth. 2003 saw the release...

Their second album. "Karcius is an instrumental group aiming at playing a mix of progressive rock and fusion jazz music. Four instrumentalists created the band at spring 2001: Dominique Blouin on bass, Thomas Brodeur on drums, Simon L’Espérance on guit...

"After the release of the Challenge album in 1969 by the proto Flower Travellin' Band, Yuya Uchida brought in Kuni Kawachi, organist and leader of The Happenings Four. They spent the early part..

Outstanding price on this collection from the albums pianist Wynton Kelly recorded for Vee-Jay between 1959-1961. Featured are Sam Jones, Paul Chambers (bass), Philly Jo Jones (drums), Lee Morgan (trumpet), Wayne Shorter (tenor sax).

This is a great sounding live release taken from a single night in the middle of the band's tour in November, 2015 from the surprising band reunion that gets nothing but very high marks from everyone who has seen it (they haven't come to my neck of the woods yet, so I am sadly not one of them!) and it's always nice to see new music from a seemingly fully engaged Robert Fripp and company! And it's a genuinely LIVE, live album!
Robert Fripp...

What does King Kong have to do with 'out music'? Well, other than the pretty cool score by the legendary Max Steiner, it has nothing at all to do with music. Still...some of you I would suspect had similar upbringings to your narrator here and spent...

"20 of his best tracks collected here. This is actually a collection of his singles (he made only singles until 1969 - any albums before then were just collections of singles) from 1966-1974, which is considered to be his best period. Obviously since...

So, I am in the middle of reading John French's book about the Magic Band ("Through the Eyes of Magic") and one of the things it is giving me an appreciation of is the guitarwork of the original two guitarists in the Magic Band, Doug Moon & especially...

Yes, nowadays it's easy to laugh at the image of the long flowing hair of the Japanese man sitting tranquilly cross-legged on the floor, but remember that Kitaro was a founding member of the Far East Family Band in the 70s and an important part of the...

"2008 reissue of perhaps the rarest album on Ember Records. The band had already taken their collaboration as far as their individual musical tastes would allow and had split before it was released. Further, due to an "offensive hand signal" inside...

Jeffrey sent me this CD out of the blue; I'd never heard of him, even though he's a homeboy from Baltimore. This is an album of electronic space-music and it's a good one. He's definitely influenced by the classics, but he also has a more modern sound ...

"Sequentaria is Jeffrey Koepper's third solo release. This release features Jeffrey Koepper's exploration of analogue sequencer styles and atmospheres. Jeffrey Koepper has been releasing excellent electronic music since 1985 in various groups and collabor

Microtonalism is hard! And they do it. It's odd to hear this without Harry's own instruments, but this is a strong performance of stuff that must basically be nearly impossible to transpose for string quartet...

First CD reissue of legendary collaboration between Christina Kubisch and Fabrizio Plessi.

"The performance started with a four-channel ambient sound that continued throughout the whole performance. Since I had no sampling possibilities at...

"During her 25 year career, Berlin based sound artist Christina Kubisch has pioneered the creation of site-specific sound and light environments, sound sculptures and sound installations. The roots of her abstract sound realities began in the intense...

This album has some of Fela's most politicized lyrics and it also has a weird history, as it was released in several forms. This has 3 songs produced by Bill Laswell when he was hired by the label to 'popularize' Fela's sound and some typical 80s hired...

"There were three great beats in the 70 s: Fela Kuti s Afrobeat, James Brown s Funk, and Klaus Dinger's NEU!"-Brian Eno

This collection of 70s works by Fela and the great Africa 70, includes 3 long tracks totalling 45' and includes one of his...

"This meeting of the minds and bands of Afro-funk creator Fela Anikulapo-Kuti and American vibist and R&B/jazz innovator Roy Ayers is a collaboration that shouldn't work on the surface. Fela's music was raw, in your face politically and socially, and...

Seun is the son of Fela Kuti and the music he makes here, on his debut album, is hugely in the Fela tradition, even using Fela's amazingly great 1980s band Egypt 80. If you are a fan of classic Fela or great Afro-pop, Seun is a more than worthy son to...

"This is an exciting display of 6 string prowess that really isn't classical, yet will inevitably become a classic. It is an amazing tour de force worthy of the California Guitar Trio. The efforst here focus on composers and players who are heroes to...

One of the greatest (not the best known or most heralded, but greatest!) of the west coast late 50s/60s saxophonists. This has material from his best known period, 1958-1961, and includes his classic, best-known release, "The Fox", among other treasures..

A great price on a great disc; anything that has ties to Noetra is going to be of interest and at this price? Snap it up!

Nice to see these later solo works by the leader of the great chamber-rock/ECM-styled band Noetra appear. This is from 1993...

Out of print for years and at a great price!

"Great lost recording in 1971 and 72, before the first album. High quality sound! Francois Mativet (guitare), Philippe Bolliet (sax tenor, clarinette), Dominique Triloff (orgue), Robert Wood...

One of the very first (maybe *the* first) CD release on the late, great AYAA label was by this mostly instrumental Swiss trio of tenor sax, bass and drums. 15 years later, here they are again with a fine second album, and what I said about their first ...

This is a nicely done, charming, period-piece release that has quite good sound considering the unreleased nature and age of the materials. Most people were not even aware of this band's existence! "Maneige fans are in for quite a treat with these long...

"In October 1998, Liquid Tension Experiment reunited at Milbrook Studios in upstate New York to record our 2nd album. A few days into the sessions, John Petrucci's pregnant wife went into premature labor - leaving myself, Jordan (Rudess) and Tony...

Yeah, I know what you all are thinking, but of the first wave of US rock and rollers, I would venture to say that Mr. Richard Penniman was the wildest and his music has held up remarkably well for being 55 years old since the earliest of these tracks...

"How's this for a group. Teddy Quintet leader and vibes, Booker Ervin on tenor, Booker Little on trumpet, Mal Waldron piano, Addison Farmer on bass and Ed Shaughnessy (who latter was really co-leader of Johnny Carson's Tonight Show band) on drums...

"Sunbeam Masters is a series of deluxe CDs celebrating some of the most enduring underground albums of the 1960s and 1970s. Manufactured to the highest standards, each is presented in a mini-LP gatefold sleeve, complete with a full-color booklet...

A cool MORE THAN $30 off the regular price! Hard to beat that!

"The epitome of a cult artist (and a favorite of Julian Cope), the enigmatic Magical Power Mako (aka Makoto Kurita) has been sporadically releasing albums in his native Japan since 1974. This lavish numbered, limited edition 5CD set collects jams taped by him between 1972 and 1975, and comes complete with a full 12-page booklet. Encompassing psychedelic folk, Krautrock, electronica and fuzz guitar, the music's effect is frequently...

OK bargain hunters and the Kobaian curious - this is for you. This is the final two "real" Magma albums of the 1970s; Udu Wudu and Attahk here complete as they were originally issued, with a track from "Live" thrown in for fun, although they are not...

Two long-unavailable titles by this late 60s bluesman who did much to revitalize and reinvigorate the form. Recycling is a live album which showcases Taj's great command of the form and his willingness to do the the unusual, performing on just a guitar...

"Their best sounding live recording so far...A stunning set , a highly recommanded CD. This is live-music at it's best !"-rateyourmusic.com

Malibran are a current Italian band who play classical/symphonic rock reminiscent of Banco and other 70s Italian classics. This is a collection of unreleased materials from 1989 - 2002.

"Hard rock mixed with soft symphonic prog. The first album..

Christian Marclay was one of the earliest folks to make an art form out of the turntable, using the device as a tool to make suprising juxtapositions. Emerging from the unbelievably fertile late 70s / early 80s downtown improv scene (where I first...

This live album, recorded between May 2004-May 2005 isn't really a live album in any conventional sense except Frank Zappa's. In other words, it has been massively worked-on in the studio, but you still get the raw power of a live performance at its base.

"Jim McAuley's The Ultimate Frog is a two-CD collection of duets between the guitarist and four great musicians: Leroy Jenkins (violin, viola), Nels Cline (guitars), Ken Filiano (bass) and Alex Cline (drums/percussion). The result of these pairings is ...

"One night of the band's two-week "Controlled By Radar" tour found Scott McGill, Michael Manring, and Vic Stevens booked into a jazz club in Boston. The fusion trio quickly adapted, adding some choice jazz standards to their set list, but with a twist....

Jackie's best known for his stupendous string of Blue Note titles from the early to late 60s and rightly so. But this earlier title from 1956 features a great band and is still a fine release at a great price...

Blind Willie McTell is one of the all-time greatest blues guitarists and singers of all time and his distinctive 12-string guitar mastery and voice make for a singular listening experience. At times, it genuinely sounds like there are two guitarists...

Well, I made the Claudia Quintet joke mentally myself, so I suppose you can do so too. Having said that, it's really nice to see this released, from our friends in Estonia who run MKDK (who also released that great Phlox album a couple of years ago)...

Very good quality (for the time period) live and studio recordings that have never been released before. This is somewhere between the wild, late-period psychedelia of their 1st album and a jammy mix that is reminscent of the original Allman Brothers at..

Nick Millevoi electric and acoustic guitars / Jamie Saft Hammond organ and piano / Johnny DeBlase upright and electric bass / Ches Smith drums with Dan Blacksberg trombone and string arrangements / June Bender violin.

Nick is a wild and wildly great guitarist who has released a bunch of records and who I have seen play at least half a dozen times. For my money, this is far and away his best (and also his most accessible) work yet. Highly recommended.

"At the intersection of jazz and rock.

"Thelonious Monk played at the Monterey Jazz Festival in 1963 and created a buzz so strong he was invited back the following year. His one-hour set from 1964 is available here, featuring his quartet through the first forty minutes. Tenor saxophonist...

The complete studio recordings (there wasn't very much, despite the relatively long stay that Coltrane had with Monk) of these two giants together. Both historically significant and, more importantly, musically significant! Includes a big booklet with...

Every year a bunch of synth-fans and musicians get together and celebrate the work of Robert Moog and his invention. This has some great footage of The Mahavishnu Project, Jan Hammer backed by The Mahavishnu Project, Keith Emerson & band, Jodan Rudess...

While they last, this is $6.00 off the regular price!

Massively hyped and really extremely good psych/folk album.

"First legit reissue of this album, one of the all time classic UK folk/psych albums, even better than Simon Finn!...

This packages the Slapp Happy and Henry Cow man's two best 'rock' albums from 1978 and 1981 together in one fine package. Fans of intelligent song-format albums and (to my mind) John Cale's better works will really love these. Glad to see that the two...

This normally sells for $17.00, 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, but they will cost $5.00 more!...
