A heavy serving of jazz from Amiga Records – the East German stalwart who did plenty to keep the music going on their side of the Iron Curtain! Some of the work here is in a trad mode – and shows that after the war, the older style found a great home in Eastern Europe – but as ... CD
Experimental vocals and offbeat reed sounds – a really great pairing of singer Uschi Bruning and reedman Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky! We know Ernst-Ludwig and Uschi from a range of other projects, but they really sound different here together – especially because Petrowsky's reeds are often ... CD
One of John Zorn's best-known "game" pieces – served up here in both a studio and live performance! Zorn doesn't play anything on the recordings, but acts as the "prompter" – a conductor of sorts, encouraging improvisations from a variety of players that include Jim ... CD
One of our favorite all-time records, and a real lost album on Blue Note! Eddie Gale leads this group of righteous singers and musicians through five fantastic tracks of soulful chanting and hard jazz playing that never goes too far out, but always threatens to break free of its own chains – ... CD
One of our favorite albums ever on the legendary ESP label – and a key session in the best "new thing" mode of the 60s! The New York Art Quartet were a short live collaboration between trombonist Roswell Rudd, saxophonist John Tchicai, bassist Lewis Worrell, and percussionist ... CD
Landmark work from Sun Ra – a rare 1964 performance that features some very early work from Pharoah Sanders, a good deal of which is appearing here for the first time ever! The material was recorded at Judson Hall, and only half the tracks came out on a rare Saturn LP – making this CD ... CD
One of the first albums ever cut as a leader by reedman Gato Barbieri – and a very sharp-edged session that's quite different than his better-known work in the 70s! Barbieri's tenor here has an incredible tone – as deeply soulful as Pharoah Sanders or late John Coltrane, and blown with ... CD
A landmark recording – Albert Ayler's first album for the ESP label, and a record that hit the jazz world like a bullet! Spiritual Unity sets the stage for a format that would become huge in the European avant scene of the 70s, 80s, 90s, and even today – the sax-driven power-trio, ... CD
Tremendous duets between these two seasoned players – a set that really lives up to the best energy of both musicians! Smith's trumpet is especially nice – stretched-out, soulful, and flowing – with a quality that really takes us back to his more dynamic recordings of the 70s ... CD
Sweet modern soul from Eloise Law – a pair of classic early 80s records together in a single set! First up is her self-titled record, an effort that's a bit in the mode of the Debra Laws album from the same period. Warmly done soul, with rich production touches, but also a bit of a ... CD
