The title might give you some hint of the feel of the set – as it's got a relatively complex quality, one that definitely fits its naming with a difficult formula – although the music itself is anything by formulaic! The group's headed by tenorist Ellery Eskelin, and features a round of New York stalwarts that includes Andrea Parkins on piano and accordion, Jim Black on drums and percussion, Marc Ribot on guitar, Melvin Gibbs on bass, and Jessica Constable on voice – all working together in the mix of free jazz and more offbeat, art-based sounds they can create. Through it all, Eskelin's tenor brings a nice degree of soul to the set – and titles include "If Not Now", "Tell Me When", "Anyone's Guess", "Say It Again", and "More Than That".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Rune Grammafon (Germany), 2014. New Copy
One of the coolest, wildest performances we've ever heard from the Fire Orchestra – an expanded version of a core jazz combo that includes Mats Gustafsson on tenor – but which here has grown to a very bold lineup of musicians with a trio of voices as well! The album features one long ... CD

Project Elo
Jazzman (UK), 2014. New Copy
Not a tribute to the Electric Light Orchestra, but a wonderfully spiritual set of jazz – one that takes key inspiration from the elohim entities of spiritual scriptures – as well as some of the best jazz mass projects from artists like Max Roach, Donald Byrd, or Mary Lou Williams! The ... CD

Jacana
Rune Grammafon (Germany), 2014. New Copy
A fierce combination of piano and percussion – the former by Sten Sandell, the latter by Paal Nilsson Love – two very well-matched improvisers! The tracks here are mostly long and dynamic – very freewheeling performances by both musicians, but at a level that really holds strong ... CD

Tabu (UK), 1976. New Copy
One of the few full albums ever cut by the great Sharon Ridley – a hell of a great singer from the east coast scene, and one with the fullness of the best club divas of the time – but an approach that goes way way deeper overall! There's a sexy slink to the album that echoes Ridley's ... CD

A tremendous first album from Sid Rumpo – proof that the Aussie scene of the 70s had some very well-developed work going on, even if it never got the global notice it deserved! Sid Rumpo are one of a few Aussie bands that were grounded in an appreciation of blues and roots, but really took ... CD
