Excellent work from Chris Woods – a genius reed player on alto sax and flute! Chris had a similar history to Nathan Davis, another richly talented American reed player from the same era – in that he was an American, but moved to Europe and achieved greater fame by becoming a seminal part of the scene during the early 60s. Woods recorded albums with Ted Curson, Marco Di Marco, and Georges Arvanitas – whose trio with Jacky Samson and Charles Saudrais is backing Chris up on this album. A few of the tunes are in a more standard jazz mode than Woods' other recordings, but there's also some great ones – like "My Lady", which is a soulful dancing waltz, and "Monsieur Lesbois In Paris", which has a nice stepping groove that's right up there with Woods' most soulful recordings! Other tracks include "Au Privae", "Love Theme For a Very Special Friend", and "Dreaming At The Woodside". LP, Vinyl record album

Beautiful solo work from Anthony Braxton – recorded live in Paris at the start of the 70s, and a fair bit more sensitive than some of his earlier work on that scene! Side one features a beautiful take on Duke Ellington's "Come Sunday" – one that runs for 25 minutes, and which features Braxton blowing straight, and almost with some of those Lee Konitz-inspired modes he was using around the time. The tune's still got some of the darkness you might expect from Braxton – but things really go out on side two, which features the originals "GN6/K/7" – using multi-tracked piano in a very cool, very experimental way!

A total of 7 piano solos from Joachim Kuhn. The first side is pretty straight and the second side has some more experimental moments. All in all, it is enjoyable and has very nice moments! CD

A great mix album where Krush revisits his classic tracks from the Mo Wax years in a non stop set that also features short vocal cameos from MCs, producers and graff writers like Stash, Futura 2000, Finsta Bundy, DJ Cam and Shawn J Period, and some nice turntable antics from Krush himself. Includes "Kemuri", "Bypath: Would YoU Take It?", "Dig This Vibe", "Duality", "Light (Can You See It?)" and lots more! CD
The rhymes by the Infinity Rappers are only on the latter half of the "cut" version – but we dig the very electro production that quotes "Tubular Bells", some nice vocoder effects and a little scratching from D St – the "uncut" version is the instrumetnal.
