CD


4.60 5

Way more than a trio recording – as the piano's just one of the key elements in this sound – as bold and free as anything else we've ever heard from Howard Riley, but matched equally by sounds from Barry Guy on bass and Tony Oxley on drums! Both Guy and Oxley are using a bit of electric elements too – Guy some electric bass in addition to his acoustic one – and Oxley some improvised electronics, which add a further crackle to the set – and the free play between all three players is massive – almost a further setting fire to the ideas the Riley was already exploring in his own music. Titles include "Mandrel", "Sirens", "Quantum", and "Ingot". CD also features the bonus track "Runes".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Rass!
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1974. New Copy
One of the coolest, grooviest albums ever cut by pianist Monty Alexander – a sweet Fender Rhodes session that's unlike most of his other work! There's a soulful, slinky groove to the whole set – a laidback approach to funk that's gotten the album sampled more than a few times over the ... CD

Call
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1970. New Copy
A stunner of a Fender Rhodes album – one of a few rare sides cut by pianist Michael Naura – and a lost MPS session that's one of the label's best from the 70s! The group's a quartet, with a very open, fluid sound – and it mixes Naura's Rhodes with the vibes of Wolfgang Schluter ... CD

In Search Of A Dream
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1977. New Copy
A full-on electric jammer from Alphonse Mouzon – cut in the frenetic style of his Blue Note sides, but given an extra electric MPS twist! The lineup includes a host of strong European fusion players – including Miroslav Vitous on bass, Philip Catherine on guitars, and Joachim Kuhn on ... CD

Knock Out
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1975. New Copy
A very heavy-duty electric jamming session – and possibly one of the best records that keyboardist Dieter Reith ever cut for the LPs label! Reith was one of the label's first stars – and initially recorded some great acoustic piano albums for their Saba offshoot in the 60s – but ... CD

House Boat
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1978. New Copy
Cool chromatic sounds from guitarist Volker Kriegel – a set that mixes his own instrumentation with vibes from Wolfgang Schulter and a fair bit of percussion too! Kriegel is always great, no matter what the setting – but here he hits a unique mode, even in comparison to his other ... CD
