4.90 1

Possibly the best album to date from Jun Miyake – a set that's every bit as enigmatic as his previous work, but somehow even better overall! There's a wonderfully visual sense to most of the songs here – almost little audio pictures in sound – put together with unusual instrumentation, soundtrack-like scoring, and some fragile vocals – all in a way that reminds us a bit of the late 70s/early 80s work of Pierre Barouh. Arto Lindsay sings on some tracks, and there's some elements here that definitely remind us of his music too – and other guests include Vinicius Cantuaria, Lisa Papineau, and Arthur H. Titles include "Alviverde", "O Fim", "The Here & After", "Turn Back", "Le Voyageur Solitaire", and "Easturn".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Do Right (Canada), 2010. New Copy
A wonderful third album from Elizabeth Shepherd – possibly her best yet – taking the stripped down, yet adventurous jazzy soul intimacy of the debut and the deeper, dreamier sound of her Parkdale album, and coming up with a lovely, unique and wholly excellent sound on Heavy Falls The ... CD

Village Again (Japan), 2008. New Copy
One of the greatest efforts so far from Hajime Yoshizawa – a set that has some heavy jazz influences, and almost hearkens back to his roots – yet one that's also awash in some of his best 21st Century soul styles as well! The album has a snapping acoustic energy that's right up there ... CD

Perfect Toy (Germany), 2009. New Copy
An album that's every bit as hip as you'd expect from its Sam Rivers-inspired cover image – a beautiful tribute to the modal jazz scene of the 60s, particularly the work of John Coltrane and some of his followers on Impulse Records! Apart from a cover of "Naima", though, the set's ... CD

Chin Chin (Italy), 2011. New Copy
One of the tightest records to date from Bebo Best – a set that's still awash in cool 60s influences from lounge, bossa, and soundtracks – but which also comes across with an even more spontaneous spirit! There's still a fair bit of programs in the rhythms, and lots of cool sound ... CD

EmArcy (Germany), 2013. New Copy Gatefold
Some of the most ambient work we've ever heard from these two contemporary musicians – a very spacious set that blends the trumpet of Nils Petter Molvaer with electronics from Moritz Von Oswald – all in a blend that's somewhere in the territory of Jon Hassell's great Fourth World albums ... CD
