5.00 16

An amazing collection of string quartet work composed by Morton Feldman – played to perfection by the Ives Ensemble, who really know how to get the right spirit out of the music! Most of these pieces are filled with space – notes that often ebb slowly into silence before the next one approaches – creating this sense of tension that's really wonderful – yet still quite tuneful too, without as much of the atonality you might hear in other work of this nature. The 4CD set features the complete String Quartet II, from 1983 – heard here in its first recording!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Round Midnight
Hat Art (Switzerland), 2012. New Copy
A set of performances dedicated to Thelonious Monk – yet music that's quite far from anything by Monk that we've ever heard before! Yet there's also a definite Monkish inspiration going on here – a sense of space and timing that resonates in different, often drawn-out ways – ... CD
Numero, 1970s. New Copy
Spacey sounds from the enigmatic Iasos – a legendary figure in the 70s underground – and an artist with a heck of a great ear for organic electronics and unusual recording techniques! This cool collection of Iasos' music was put together by Carlos Nino with the guys at Numero – ... CD
Messe Pour Le Temps Present
Philips (France), 1967. New Copy
Fantastic! This classic bit of funky electronic French stuff has been showing up in bits and pieces on various compilations over the past few years (most notably the cut "Psyche Rock", which has some sample history to it), but this is the full release of this amazing collaboration ... CD
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy
Joe Tex bumps with the best of his contemporaries in the 70s – but at a level that still holds onto all the warmth and humanity of his earlier recordings too! There's definitely a bit of a dancefloor groove to the record, but it never dampens the spirit in Joe's vocals – and in a way, ... CD
Flashback
Essential, 2013. New Copy
Jean Carne takes it back nicely here – serving up a surprisingly great batch of mellow soul tunes that really recall the brilliance of her work for the Philly International label! There's definitely lots of Philly elements in the music – no surprise, given that production is by Butch ... CD
Anos 50 (3CD set)
Discobertas (Brazil), 1950s. New Copy 3 CDs
A great collection of vintage work from Brazilian singer Moreira Da Silva – including a fair bit of tracks originally only issued as 78rpm singles! The collection features two CDs' worth of material from 78s, plus the full album O Tal from later in the decade – but even that is ... CD
Festa Do Chorinho Vol 1
Discobertas (Brazil), 2013. New Copy
A great revival of older choro modes – played in a style that's quite faithful to the original, and which is recorded in a spare, simple style that's mighty nice! The set's oddly missing notes on the musicians, but instrumentation includes lots of percussion on tamborim, sweet lyrical lines ... CD
