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.

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
